Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home whethyer or not you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is important that you keep the area dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are several ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different repair solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The main place where we find water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Whatever the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom waterproofing system to help remove the water. In some more extreme cases, we may recommend installing a sump pump system to help with the removal of water. Our experts have the basement waterproofing solutions you need to keep your home dry and safe.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundtion problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement 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 bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckly, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. We 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 stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it 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 leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Barclay area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open 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 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. 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 increase 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 mold. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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. Water 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.
