If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. 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 the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Sinking or crumbling concrete walkways are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Whether you have a big seating area or slab that is starting to sink or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help level the section and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and working with the hassles of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We have two main services to implement our repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that is injected below the sinking slab that carefully and safely lifts the slab to it's proper location. This process works so well, we can perform leveling on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service uses a unique system of epoxy and sealing to seal the problematic or broken concrete to increase the rigidity and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
