When you have stagnant water in your basement following a large rain, this is never good. If this water stays around, it will prevent you from having the ability to store items in the area and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately cause the growth of mildew and mold which can eventually be a cause of life threatening health problems.

If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. 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 will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Unstable or cracked concrete walkways are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether you've got a long parking area or patio that is breaking up or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services will help level the section and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and working around the hassle of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two primary methods to accomplish these repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly levels the slab to it's original location. This method works so well, we can perform this service 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 patch the problematic or breaking concrete to increase the strength and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
