Basement Waterproofing Professionals
Our basement waterproofing contractor has years of experience taking care of all types of moisture problems under a Palmer home. Moisture here can cause a lot of problems, including expensive damage to your home's structural integrity. All of this moisture can cause wooden materials below the home to rot. If these materials are brittle and crumbling, it's going to cause a lot of problems for the structural integrity of your entire home. The moisture can also trigger the growth of mold. Mold is a fungus that can make your home smell musty, and it can also lead to a variety of serious health problems for you and your family. Avoid these problems entirely by getting your leaks taken care of immediately by professionals in the business who have the experience and supplies needed to get the job done right, and done right the first time.
Our experts will be able to determine which kind of waterproofing system will be best for your Palmer, Tennessee home. From installing sump pumps inside of the home, to installing an exterior waterproofing membrane on the outside of the foundation, we guarantee that we will get the moisture problem taken care of at the source so that you never again need to deal with leaks or flooding below your home.
On the inside of your basement, we can install sump pumps with battery backups, dehumidifiers, and drainage systems which will connect to the sumps. All of our waterproofing systems come with a lifetime warranty, so you can rest assured knowing that the products we install in your home are going to be effective at taking care of the problem for the long haul.
On the outside of your family's home, we can take care of poor lawn grading and drainage issues by installing French drains, and we can also install the exterior waterproofing membrane on your foundation walls in case they are cracked from the outside.

Our Foundation Solutions
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. The soil around your foundation swells up whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on your lawn. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. 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. We will need to figure out the cause of the problem and address it at the source. Also, the crack will need to be filled and sealed so that it doesn't let moisture inside the home.
Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.
This is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. 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. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
Mold Testing and Remediation Services
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Palmer area homes. Sadly, there are many people who don't fully understand the dangers of having this fungus growing in their homes. This is something you need to get rid of immediately because it can cause a variety of serious medical problems, including: asthma attacks, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies, headaches, and more. Additionally, this dark green or black fungus can make your entire home smell very musty and un-welcoming. This can really take away from the natural charm and appeal of your home.
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. To make sure that the problem doesn't happen again, we can install our waterproofing and encapsulation systems to make sure there can't be any moisture or humidity. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
