If you're seeing cracks in the foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of window or doors, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Alhambra area as the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. The problems are occasionally caused by inadequate compaction during original construction of the home. Our team can install a network of piers under your house that will shift the load of the home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.More Information
When you've seen standing water in the basement after a big rainfall, this is not good. If this water is not removed, it will prevent you from being able to store items in the basement and even keep you from being able to fully use the space. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately harbor mold and mildew which can ultimately lead to health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help design a basement waterproofing solution which will control water coming in and prevent any additional problems from happening. This system will stop the growth of mold and help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even an extra bedroom.More Information
If you've got a basement, it is likely being used as a place to store your excess furniture and items or you have the space finished. It does not matter how the space is being used, if there is a buckling wall problem, it should be looked at by a professional to keep the wall from becoming serious. If the supporting walls buckle too far out of alignment, they can end up failing and falling into the basement. This can result in the basement walls not being able to hold up the building correctly and can cause you to have to either replace or rebuild the entire wall of the foundation. It is good for you that we have available a number of different options we can use to fix and stop buckling basement walls from being a problem in the future which will prevent the walls from collapsing.More Information
Sinking or cracking concrete patio slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. Whether you have a large driveway or the patio that is settling or a short section of a path, our concrete lifting services will allow us to level the slab and return it to the correct height, preventing the potential cost and hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. This is done using a method known as mudjacking. This process involves pumping a slurry that safely and evenly returns the sinking slab to it's original location. We are able to use this on large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
