Our Foundation Solutions
At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.
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 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. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
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 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. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
Mold Testing and Removal Professionals
Our team of professionals can provide you with experienced mold removal services for your Whites Creek area home. Sadly, there are many people who don't fully understand the dangers of having this fungus growing in their homes. It is important to get rid of it ASAP, however, since it can cause many different health problems for your family. Also, this fungus has been known to make a home smell very musty and unwelcoming.
Causes of Mold Growth
This fungus needs three things to live, which are excessive humidity, water, and organic materials to feed off of. 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. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
