When you've seen water in the basement after a large storm, this is not good. If this water is present, it can prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity can ultimately cause mold and mildew to grow which could eventually lead to life threatening health problems. If there is standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can investigate the problem and help create a basement waterproofing solution which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This system can also prevent the growth of mold and also make it so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even an extra bedroom.More Info

If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can even have critters holed up 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 team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. 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 system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sinking 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
Sinking or settling concrete slabs are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether your big driveway or patio that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services will help repair the area and prevent future problems while keeping you from spending the cost and working with the hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. We use two main services to implement the repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sunken slab that carefully and safely returns the slab to it's proper location. This method works so well, we can perform lifting on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second process utilizes a unique system of epoxy and sealing to patch the problematic or broken concrete to increase the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.More Info
