The foundation of your home is most likely 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 got foundation problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, 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 indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad the damage is and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you've noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Solutions
In the Stevensville area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these crawl space 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 mold growth. If you have a crawl space, 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control mold. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
