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. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation 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. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
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. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.

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).
