They are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather.

Unstable or cracked concrete slabs are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether you have a large seating area or set of stairs that is sinking or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services can help get it level and prevent future problems while preventing the cost and dealing with the hassles of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We use two primary methods to accomplish these repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sinking slab that slowly and evenly returns the concrete to it's proper location. This method works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service involves a unique system of epoxy and sealing to seal the problematic or broken concrete to increase the strength and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
