Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Bernhards Bay area as the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. The problems are also caused by poor soil compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your foundation that will shift the load of the home to the piers and prevent the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.More Info
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess humidity problems that can 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 close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Slanting or broken concrete walkways are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether you've got a big parking area or set of stairs that is breaking up or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help level the section and prevent future problems while preventing the cost and working around the hassle of removing it and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to accomplish the repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly lifts the section to it's original location. This works so well, we can perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service involves a specific system of epoxy and sealing to patch the problematic or breaking concrete to restore the rigidity and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
