While hurricane season for Virginia spans from June 1st to the 30th of November, heavy rains and storm surges throughout the year also contribute greatly to the almost yearly flooding that now affects multiple communities in the state. Even Richmond is at risk of flooding both from various storms as well as tidal waters which extend inland. When these waters reach your home, they can load the soil with incredible amounts of hydrostatic pressure, leading to cracked foundations, flooded basements, and pooled crawlspaces. But whichever scenario happens, that water damage will need to be fixed before the rest of your home becomes at risk of structural damage. Fortunately, from foundation repair to crawlspace encapsulation, ’58 Foundations brings the quality products, decades of experience, and honest methods that you need to enjoy a safe and dry home!

Slightly higher than average, the state of Virginia gets around 44 inches of rain each year. But in just 2020, some areas received as much as 62 inches of rainfall in the year, and a number of our communities were subjected to multiple flash floods. From years of storms and receiving hurricane leftovers, thousands of our homes experience incredible amounts of foundation stress due to hydrostatic pressure from rain-soaked soil. Basements and crawlspaces become prone to pooling or flooding during these times and can lead to damage and loss of property. It can be hard to enjoy a trip to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts or a fine meal out at Charlottesville’s renowned French C&O when you’re worrying about your home. But with the help of our foundation repair, mold removal, and basement waterproofing experts, we’ll help keep your home safe, dry, and prepared for any rainy days that come your way.

It is crucial to keep your basements and crawlspaces dry, especially if your Virginia community is experiencing heavy rains and potentially annual flooding. When moisture is allowed to linger and water is left to pool, those sublevel spaces can become breeding grounds for potentially hazardous molds. This can be especially dangerous if you have respiratory issues like asthma or even sensitive skin. But ’58 Foundations can help keep your home safe, and a healthy place for you, your loved ones, and all your guests.
Since 1958, ’58 Foundations has developed the methods and products to not just simply remediate your mold problem—we can remove it. After a free inspection, our mold removal experts will know how scour your basement or crawlspace clean of mold—so that you can breathe easy and use your extra space without worry. Have a look at our areas of expertise and see how we’re keeping people’s homes health and mold-free!
