If you've seen standing water in your basement after a heavy storm, it is not good. When this water is not controlled, it can prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately cause mold and mildew to grow which could be a cause of dangerous health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should contact us so one of our experts can investigate the issue and help implement a basement waterproofing system which can control water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This can control the growth of mold as well as make it so you can have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even an extra bedroom.More Info
If you're noticing cracks in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the window or doorways, this is a sign that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when moving them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Bolivar area as the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are also caused by poor soil compaction during the building of your home. Our team can install a piering system under your house that will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.More Info
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 generally improperly closed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Unstable or broken concrete paths are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether you've got a big seating area or set of stairs that is breaking up or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services can help level the section and keep it from being a problem again while preventing the cost and working around the hassles of breaking it up and replacing it. We have two main services to implement the repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sunken slab that slowly and evenly lifts the section to it's original location. This system works so well, we are able to perform this service on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service utilizes a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to patch the problematic or breaking concrete to restore the rigidity and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
