If this water stays around, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even keep you from being able to fully use the space.

If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is a problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know 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 in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info

Regardless of if your big parking area or slab that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help get it level and restore it to being safe while preventing the cost and dealing with the work of tearing it up and re-pouring it.
