If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. They are known for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
Sinking or broken concrete walkways are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Regardless of if you've got a long driveway or set of stairs that is sinking or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services can help repair the area and prevent future problems while preventing the cost and dealing with the hassles of tearing it up and replacing it. We use two main methods to accomplish these repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly lifts the slab to it's original location. This works so well, we can perform lifting on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second service involves a specific system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to restore the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.More Info
