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 necessary that you keep the area dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are several ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer several different repair products to help keep the water out of your basement. The most likely place where we find water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have solutions that will collect and expell 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 product installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in 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 systems you need to keep your home dry and safe.
Structural Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundtion problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, 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 indicators 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem 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've noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is bowing, 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 Clinton area, there are 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 intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these crawl space vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms. 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 in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will benefit 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 seal them and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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.
