When you've got stagnant water in the basement following a big rainfall, it is not good. When this water stays around, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity can ultimately harbor mold and mildew which could ultimately lead to health problems. If you're noticing standing water in your basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can evaluate the water and help come up with a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent any additional damage from happening. This system can control the growth of mold and also make it so you can have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.More Info

If you've got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Slanting or cracked concrete slabs are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether your long driveway or slab that is sinking or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services can help repair the area and keep it from being a problem again without the cost and dealing with the hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. We have two primary services to implement our repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sunken slab that slowly and evenly levels the concrete to it's proper location. This process works so well, we can perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service utilizes a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to increase the strength and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
