Professional Foundation Repair
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundtion problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by our team at American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold control to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckly, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad the damage is and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you notice bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, 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 built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open vents allows water to get in during storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold and mildew. If you have a crawl space, 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.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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.
