If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is because they are usually poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Sinking or crumbling concrete walkways are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Whether your big parking area or set of stairs that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help level the section and restore it to being safe while preventing the cost and working around the hassle of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to accomplish the repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sunken slab that safely and evenly lifts the slab to it's proper location. This system works so well, we can perform leveling on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service involves a specific system of epoxy and sealing to seal the problematic or breaking concrete to restore the strength and keep it from breaking again.More Info
