Foundation problems are commonplace in the Berkshire area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down throughout the year. These issues are also caused by poor soil compaction when your home was being built.

If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is a problem. This is because they are normally improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Unstable or crumbling concrete slabs are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether your long seating area or slab that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help repair the area and prevent future problems while keeping you from spending the cost and working with the work of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We use two primary methods to accomplish the repairs. The first utilizesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sunken slab that carefully and safely returns the slab to it's proper location. This works so well, we are able to perform lifting on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second process uses a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to patch the problematic or broken concrete to increase the strength and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
