If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Sinking or broken concrete paths are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Regardless of if you have a large driveway or slab that is sinking or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services will help repair the area and restore it to being safe while preventing the cost and working with the hassles of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to accomplish our repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that safely and evenly returns the section to it's proper location. This process works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process uses a specific system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problematic or broken concrete to increase the strength and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
