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 important that you keep the area dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are several ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water out of your basement. 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 solutions that will remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering 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 dr0 and safe.
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. 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 a professional 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 problems. We can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Harwood area, there are homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these crawl space 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. 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 Eagle Professional Services, Inc. has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control mold. 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
