Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is imperative 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 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 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 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 solution 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 products you need to keep your home safe.
Your Homes 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 foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the windows 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 observe them, however, they are all indicative 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at noticing these issues. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on how bad it 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 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 Church Hill area, there are homes that were constructed 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, these vents don’t really work that way, having these 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. 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.
Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control humidity. This is achieved 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
