Basement Waterproofing Professionals

Waterproofing

A professional basement waterproofing contractor, such as Atlantis Waterproofing, will be able to help you with flooding and leaks below your home. It's no surprise that water in your basement will inevitably trigger a lot of damage if left untreated for too long. Water in the basement can cause wooden materials, including support beams and floor joists to warp, rot, and decay. These materials are partially responsible for holding up the weight of your home; so it is important that these materials are strong and durable. What's more is that this moisture can lead to the growth of dangerous 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 Foundation Solutions

At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

This problem is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. The soil around your foundation swells up whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on your lawn. 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 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.

Wall Cracks

Wall Cracks

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.

Floor Cracks

Floor Cracks

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.

Sinking Foundation

Foundation Settlement

This is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. To fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). 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.
