If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info

Regardless of if your long seating area or slab that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help level the section and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and dealing with the work of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to implement the repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that safely and evenly levels the section to it's proper location. This works so well, we can perform lifting on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab.
