Structural Foundation Repair
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow.

Crawl Space Repair
In the Arnold area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with vents to the outside. These vents were intended help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. With homes that have crawl spaces, up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
