If you've seen standing water in your basement after a big rainfall, this is not good. When this water is not controlled, it can keep you from having the ability to store items in the area and even stop you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately cause the growth of mildew and mold which could in the future be a cause of dangerous health problems. If you're noticing standing water in your basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can look into the problem and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which can stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This system can stop the growth of mold and make it so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even a spare bedroom.More Information
If your home has a basement, you will probably be using it as a place to store your excess furniture and items or it is used for extra space. No matter how you are using the space, if you have a bowing wall issue, it should be looked at by a professional to stop the issue from getting worse. If your basement walls buckle too much, the worst case scenario is they fall into the basement. This could result in your foundation walls not having the ability to hold up your building correctly and could force you to have to rebuild or even replace the length of wall of the foundation. It is a good thing that we have available a variety of different options available to repair and stop buckling foundation walls from turning into a problem in the future which will help save money in the long run and prevent your walls from collapsing.More Information
Sinking or cracked concrete slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. It doesn't matter if you have a driveway or your patio that is sinking or a smaller area of a path, our concrete lifting method will allow us to get it level and restore it to the proper location without the potential cost and work involved with tearing it out and replacing it. This is done using a process commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process involves injecting a grout that safely and evenly lifts the sinking slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab.More Information
