For many, a home is the most expensive asset they own. Without a solid foundation, your house can be at great risk. Water is the biggest enemy to its foundation, infiltrating cracks and crevices and weakening the foundation walls. As one of the top waterproofing contractors in Suwanee, GA, Aquadry Waterproofing, LLC, will work with you to protect your home’s foundation from moisture because we know catching a water problem can mean the difference in a small repair and rebuilding the entire foundation.
Many foundation walls will develop small cracks over time and even leaks that should be addressed immediately. As the water comes through, it can open the cracks even more and weaken the wall. Our licensed repair experts use their vast experience and state-of-the-art materials and equipment to permanently repair cracks to stop the water. After 15 years of business, our technicians have performed thousands of foundation repairs for homes against invading water.
Your home may not sit on a full-size basement foundation, but rather a few pillars with a crawlspace. Water and mold can be issues in crawlspaces. This is because crawlspaces are typically cramped areas with no ventilation. Any water or humidity that gets in can foster mold growth that can affect your family’s health. We have a team of technicians that work with sealing your crawlspace to limit the humidity and keep your crawlspace dry.
Our expertise is not limited to water prevention. The most catastrophic problem a property can face is a sinking or bowing foundation. With a sinking foundation, the soil under one section washes away and the foundation wall begins to sink. This can cause cracks in the walls and separation in the corners. A sinking foundation can be repaired with columns under the walls. Known as piering a foundation, the columns are pushed into the ground until they reach bedrock and then are stood vertically to support the wall and keep it from sinking.
Basement wall bowing is another major problem. As the soil behind the wall expands and contracts with the seasons, it exerts added pressure on the walls, causing them bow. Eventually, the bowing walls will collapse under the weight of the house. First, the soil around the house is dug up to loosen it. Sand or gravel may be added to keep it loose and prevent compacting. While the area is excavated, long anchors are drilled into the walls and screwed into the hard soil that has not been disturbed. This pulls the walls back out so they are straight and plumb.
