Prevent these issues by calling us at the first sign of moisture.

Indications of a Foundation Problem:
- Windows and doors don't open or close like they should
- Cracks form along window and door frames
- Interior and exterior cracks appear
- Certain areas on the first floor of the home feel like they're sagging
- Noticeable sinking on one or more sides of the home
- Leaning, bowing walls appear in the basement
- Cracks appear in the basement floor
Our Foundation Systems
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
This problem is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors, wall braces, and wall supports to provide the extra strength needed to keep the walls in place and stable.
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. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. 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 Melrose area home. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who don't understand how dangerous this fungus can be in their homes. It is important to get rid of it ASAP, however, since it can cause many different health problems for your family. What's more is that this fungus can make your entire home smell very musty, similar to dirty gym socks.
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). More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
