Our Foundation Systems
At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.
Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. To take care of this issue, our team will be able to install special wall anchors, braces, and support systems to strengthen the wall and keep it properly supported.
A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as settlement. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. Also, the crack will need to be filled and sealed so that it doesn't let moisture inside the home.
These cracks typically do not pose a problem for the structural integrity of a home, but they still need to be filled in and sealed to prevent moisture from seeping in through the ground and causing damage.
This problem is also caused from the soil around your home, and it's typically from poorly backfilled earth from the time when your home was being built. To take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. The piers will be installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
Mold Remediation Professionals
Atlantis Waterproofing can provide you with professional mold removal services for your Manchester area home. A lot of homeowners don't realize how dangerous this fungus really is. However, it can cause a wide variety of serious health problems. including: headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, allergies, asthma attacks, coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, and other unwanted medical conditions.

Causes of Mold Growth
When it comes to the growth and survival of this fungus, it is going to need only three things to live, which are water, organic materials to feed off of, and excessive humidity (moisture in the air). Typically speaking, these three things are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment.
