If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Sinking or settling concrete slabs are not only unattractive, they can be dangerous as well. Whether you have a long driveway or slab that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help level the section and keep it from being a problem again without the cost and working around the work of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to implement the repairs. The first utilizesan expanding polyurethane foam that is injected below the sinking slab that safely and evenly levels the section to it's original location. This method works so well, we are able to perform lifting on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process utilizes a specific system of epoxy and sealing to patch the crumbling or broken concrete to restore the strength and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
