If you've seen cracking in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the window frames or door frames, this is one of the signs that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when closing them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Bath area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are also caused by improper compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a piering system under your home which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.More Info
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area 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 will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Slanting or crumbling concrete slabs are not only unattractive, they can be dangerous as well. Whether you have a big seating area or set of stairs that is breaking up or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services will help get it level and restore it to being safe while preventing the cost and dealing with the hassles of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We use two primary methods to accomplish these repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sinking slab that carefully and safely returns the slab to it's original location. This method works so well, we can even perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service uses a unique system of epoxy and sealing to patch the crumbling or breaking concrete to increase the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
