Our Foundation Solutions
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. 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. 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. 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 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. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.

However, it can cause a wide variety of serious health problems. including: headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, allergies, asthma attacks, coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, and other unwanted medical conditions. 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
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.
