Structural Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is most likely 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 foundtion issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators 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 common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a 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 level the foundation. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Crumpton area, there are many homes that were constructed 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, these vents don't really work that way, having these open 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 benefit 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 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 saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
