If this water is not removed, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even prevent you from turning that space into another room.

If there are cracking in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Branchport area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. These issues are sometimes caused by inadequate compaction during the building of your home. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your foundation which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.More Info
If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Unstable or broken concrete paths are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Regardless of if you've got a big driveway or slab that is starting to sink or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help get it level and keep it from being a problem again without the cost and working with the hassles of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two primary methods to implement our repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sunken slab that slowly and evenly lifts the concrete to it's original location. This system works so well, we can even perform leveling on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second process involves a unique system of epoxy and sealing to correct the crumbling or breaking concrete to restore the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.More Info
