When there is stagnant water in the basement after a heavy storm, it is not good. When this water is present, it will prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even stop you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity can ultimately harbor mold and mildew which can eventually be a cause of dangerous health problems. If you've seen standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help come up with a basement waterproofing system which will stop water coming in and prevent any additional damage from occurring. This will stop the growth of mold and enable you to finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.More Info

If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues 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 in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Sinking or cracked concrete slabs are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Whether you have a long driveway or slab that is starting to sink or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help level the section and prevent future problems without the cost and working around the work of removing it and re-pouring it. We have two primary services to accomplish the repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sinking slab that slowly and evenly lifts the concrete to it's original location. This method works so well, we can perform lifting on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process involves a specific system of epoxy and sealing to patch the crumbling or breaking concrete to increase the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
