The foundation is the most important part of your building as it protects your property against storm damage and supports all the weight of the structure above it. A problem with your building's foundation can lead to extensive property or structural damage. Don't neglect your foundation if you see any damage and hire quality foundation repair service provider to stop further damage to your property.
Foundations can be damaged due to several reasons, and one of the leading cause is foundation settlement. Other common causes are poor drainage, tree roots, other water problems or poorly planned construction.

Initial evaluations are usually free, and we only recommend repairs if we believe they are necessary.

Foundation waterproofing is an important part of any construction project. Without it, water can seep into the basement where it will erode the concrete or block and mortar that holds the foundation together. Excess moisture in a building can also lead to mold and water damage, which is not only unpleasant to live with but also dangerous for the occupants of the property.
There are various methods of preventing water from reaching the interior of a building:
Foundation drainage systems also known as drain tile, is the installation of a perforated pipe system along the perimeter of the foundation base, this encourages the ground water away from the foundation by guiding it offsite under the surrounding earth.
The installation of waterproof membranes commonly known as Blueskin. This is impermeable sheets of material, such as rubber or plastic, applied over the foundation before backfilling begins. The membrane will prevent any water from seeping through the cracks in the concrete and entering the basement.
Atlantic Brick and Stone Inc. also offers closed cell spray foam installations for the exterior or interior of your foundation. This will give you a 100 % waterproof seal from moisture entry as well as the added benefit of adding insulation value to your basement.
