Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home whether 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 areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your home. The main place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. 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 solutions that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized drainage 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 products you need to keep your home safe.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundtion issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice 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.
Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed 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 bring the home back to level. 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 neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Chester area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces 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, this is not what really happens, 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. 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.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control mold. This is done 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
