We at Amazonia Waterproofing, Inc., fix
your foundation permanently using traditional construction
materials. We customize a solution to repair your foundation
based on New Jersey State Building Construction Codes, and
not guess at the problem with temporary fixes and poor workmanship.
The foundation of your home is truly the
most important component of its construction. A poor foundation
will not only diminish the integrity of a building but can
even condemn it for demolition. It takes a true specialist
in the field with 16 years of experience performing waterproofing
installations and constructing and repairing foundations like
Amazonia's president, Allan Santos to know how to stay clear
of quick fixes that will only waste your time and money.
For example, we at Amazonia use traditional
construction materials such as concrete and steel, and not
cheap new alternatives like carbon fiber strips that other
waterproofing companies use. They may tell you that carbon
fiber is a great solution to fix your foundation because it
is 18 times stronger that steel. This is only true when you
keep a 1 to 1 ratio of steel to carbon fiber strips. However,
most waterproofing companies do not tell you know that a steel
beam is 48 times thicker than a carbon fiber strip.
On average, you would need a 6"x 6" steel
I-beam to fix a horizontal crack in your foundation. However,
waterproofing companies use carbon fiber strips that are only
1/8" thick to fix this problem. Carbon fibers are also a poor
alternative because they are glued in place. Would you trust
glue to permanently hold several tons of pressure the dirt
and water is applying on your foundation walls?
At Amazonia Waterproofing, Inc., we do not
gamble on quick fixes with your money. We do it right the
first time, using the best materials on the market. We will
fix your foundation permanently and give you a lifetime warranty
on our service. We use proven standardized procedures to perform
all of our Structural Repairs. Each Structural Repair is customized
to suit your property.
