If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. They are notorious for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info

Regardless of if your large driveway or set of stairs that is breaking up or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services will help get it level and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and dealing with the hassle of removing it and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to implement the repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sinking slab that slowly and evenly levels the slab to it's proper location.
