When you have standing water in the basement following a heavy rainfall, this is never good. If this water is not removed, it will keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even keep you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity can also cause the growth of mildew and mold which could ultimately lead to dangerous health problems. If you've got standing water in your basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can investigate the flooding and help design a basement waterproofing system which will control water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from occurring. This system will also prevent the growth of mold and make it so you can be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a media room, or even a spare bedroom.More Info
If you're seeing cracking in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of the window or doors, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair.

Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Berkshire area as the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a piering system under your house that will shift the load of the home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.More Info
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to 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 correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Unstable or settling concrete slabs are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether you have a long driveway or patio that is breaking up or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services can help repair the area and restore it to being safe without the cost and dealing with the work of breaking it up and replacing it. We use two primary services to implement the repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sunken slab that carefully and safely levels the section to it's original location. This works so well, we can even perform leveling on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service utilizes a unique system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problematic or breaking concrete to increase the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.More Info
