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 necessary that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are several areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your home. The primary place where we find basement 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have products that will remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the first things our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to control 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.
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 foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by our team at American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on the extent of the damage and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you have got 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.
In the Barclay 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 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 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
