If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary 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 system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Sinking or settling concrete walkways are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Regardless of if you've got a large parking area or patio that is sinking or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services can help get it level and prevent future problems without the cost and working with the hassle of breaking it up and replacing it. We use two main services to implement our repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sunken slab that slowly and evenly levels the section to it's proper location. This process works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service involves a unique system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to increase the rigidity and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
