If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Slanting or broken concrete paths are not only unattractive, they can be dangerous as well. Regardless of if you have a big parking area or set of stairs that is sinking or a smaller 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 hassles of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We have two main methods to accomplish the repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that is injected below the sinking slab that carefully and safely levels the concrete to it's proper location. This method works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process uses a specific system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problematic or breaking concrete to increase the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
