If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity 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 this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Sinking or cracked concrete walkways are not only unattractive, they can be dangerous as well. Whether you have a big driveway or set of stairs that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help repair the area and keep it from being a problem again without the cost and dealing with the hassles of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two main services to accomplish the repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly levels the slab to it's proper location. This process works so well, we are able to perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process uses a unique system of epoxy and sealing to patch the problematic or breaking concrete to increase the strength and keep it from breaking again.More Info
