If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Sinking or crumbling concrete paths are not only unattractive, they can be dangerous as well. Regardless of if you've got a large driveway or set of stairs that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help repair the area and prevent future problems while preventing the cost and working with the hassle of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We have two primary methods to accomplish our repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sinking slab that carefully and safely returns the slab to it's original location. This method works so well, we can even perform leveling on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service involves a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problematic or breaking concrete to restore the rigidity and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
