If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know 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 unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
Sinking or crumbling concrete walkways are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether your large driveway or patio that is sinking or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help repair the area and prevent future problems without the cost and working with the hassle of breaking it up and replacing it. We use two main methods to accomplish our repairs. The first usesan expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sunken slab that slowly and evenly levels the concrete to it's original location. This method works so well, we can even perform leveling on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service involves a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to restore the rigidity and help stop it from breaking again.More Info
