If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are generally poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging 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 prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info

Regardless of if your large driveway or slab that is starting to sink or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help repair the area and prevent future problems while preventing the cost and dealing with the hassles of tearing it up and replacing it. We have two main services to accomplish the repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sunken slab that carefully and safely returns the slab to it's proper location. This works so well, we are able to perform lifting on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab.
