If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Slanting or crumbling concrete slabs are not only unattractive, they can be dangerous as well. Whether you've got a big parking area or patio that is breaking up or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services will help repair the area and restore it to being safe without the cost and working with the work of tearing it up and replacing it. We use two primary services to accomplish our repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sinking slab that carefully and safely levels the section to it's original location. This process works so well, we can perform leveling on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process involves a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problematic or broken concrete to restore the rigidity and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
