Professional Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundtion problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on the extent of the damage and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckeling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Solutions
In the Stevensville area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these vents allows water to get in during heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold and mildew. With homes that have crawl spaces, up to half of the air entering your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is best achieved 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 saggign floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
