If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is because they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Slanting or cracked concrete paths are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Whether you've got a big driveway or slab that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services can help level the section and prevent future problems without the cost and working with the hassle of breaking it up and replacing it. We have two main services to implement these repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sunken slab that slowly and evenly levels the concrete to it's proper location. This method works so well, we can even perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second process utilizes a specific system of epoxy and sealing to correct the crumbling or breaking concrete to restore the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
