Waterproofing

If you've seen standing water in the basement following a large rainfall, it is never good. If this water is not removed, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even stop you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually harbor mold and mildew which could eventually be responsible for dangerous health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can investigate the issue and help come up with a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This system can also stop the growth of mold as well as enable you to have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an additional bedroom.

Foundation Repair

If you're seeing cracking in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your window frames or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Ithaca area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. They are occasionally caused by improper compaction during the building of your home. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your foundation that will shift the load of the home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.

Crawl Spaces

If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.

Concrete Repair

Unstable or broken concrete walkways are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Whether your large driveway or patio that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services can help level the section and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and working around the hassle of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We have two primary services to accomplish our repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sunken slab that safely and evenly lifts the concrete to it's proper location. This system 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 uses a specific system of epoxy and sealing to correct the crumbling or broken concrete to increase the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.
