If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly messy, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having excess humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Sinking or settling concrete slabs are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Regardless of if you've got a large seating area or slab that is breaking up or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help get it level and prevent future problems while keeping you from spending the cost and working around the work of breaking it up and replacing it. We use two primary methods to accomplish the repairs. The first utilizesan expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly lifts the concrete to it's proper location. This works so well, we can even perform leveling on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service uses a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to restore the rigidity and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
