If there is standing water in the basement after a heavy rainfall, it is never good. If this water stays around, it will keep you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even stop you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately cause the growth of mildew and mold which could in the future lead to health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can determine the cause of the issue and help create a basement waterproofing solution which will control water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This system will also control the growth of mold and enable you to finally be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a media room, or even an additional bedroom.More Information

Settling or cracked concrete patio slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. Whether you've got an entire driveway or the patio that is cracking or a short part of sidewalk, the concrete lifting process we use can allow us to get it level and return it to the correct location, avoiding the cost and hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. We do this with a process known as mudjacking. This process involves injecting a cement slurry that safely and evenly lifts the settling slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on large slabs such as garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
