If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Unstable or crumbling concrete paths are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether you have a large seating area or slab that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help repair the area and keep it from being a problem again without the cost and working around the hassle of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to implement our repairs. The first utilizesan expanding polyurethane foam that is injected below the sunken slab that slowly and evenly lifts the concrete to it's proper location. This system works so well, we are able to perform this service on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second process utilizes a specific system of epoxy and sealing to patch the problematic or breaking concrete to increase the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.More Info
