If you've got stagnant water in the basement following a heavy rainfall, it is not good. When this water is not removed, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess water and humidity can also harbor mold and mildew which could in the future be a cause of dangerous health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can investigate the problem and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which can stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This system can also prevent the growth of mold and also help so you can have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even an additional bedroom.More Information
If your home has a basement, it is likely being used as either storage or you have the space finished. Regardless of how the space is being used, if you have a bowing wall problem, it should be looked at by a professional to keep the wall from becoming serious. If the supporting walls bow too much, the worst case scenario is they fall into the basement. This could lead to the foundation walls not having the ability to hold up the home correctly and could force you to have to replace or rebuild the length of wall in the basement. Thankfully we use a variety of different solutions available to fix and prevent bowing basement walls from becoming an issue in the future which can help save money in the long run and prevent your walls from collapsing.More Information
Sinking or cracking concrete driveway slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. Whether the problem is an entire driveway or the patio that is settling or a short section of a path, our concrete lifting services can help level the slab and return it to the proper height, avoiding the cost and hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. We do this with a method known as mudjacking. This process involves pumping a grout that safely and evenly lifts the sinking slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor.More Information
