If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause problems with 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 install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info

Regardless of if your big seating area or patio that is starting to sink or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services will help get it level and restore it to being safe while preventing the cost and working with the work of breaking it up and re-pouring it.
