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 free from flooding. There are several ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. 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 waterproofing systems that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, the first thing 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 custom 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 dr0 and safe.
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 foundation issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems 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 repair and stabilize 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 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 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.
In the Cordova area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they 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 mold growth. 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
