When you have standing water in the basement after a heavy storm, this is never good. When this water is not controlled, it will prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess water and humidity can ultimately harbor mold and mildew which can in the future be responsible for dangerous health problems. If you've seen standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the problem and help come up with a basement waterproofing system which will prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This will control the growth of mold and also help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.More Information
If you've got a basement, you will probably be using it as a storage area or it is a finished area. It does not matter how you are using your basement, if you've noticed a bowing wall issue, it should be looked at by a professional to prevent the problem from getting worse. If the supporting walls bow too much, they can end up failing and falling into the basement. This can result in the basement walls not having the ability to support the building safely and could force you to have to rebuild or even replace the entire wall in the basement. It is a good thing that we have available a variety of different solutions we can use to fix and stop bowing or buckling foundation walls from becoming a problem in the future which can keep your basement walls from bowing any longer.More Information
Settling or cracking concrete slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. Whether you have a large driveway or the patio that is sinking or a small area of a path, our concrete lifting method can help level the slab and return it to the correct location without the potential cost and hassle of tearing it out and replacing it. This is done with a method known as mudjacking. This process features injecting a cement slurry that safely and evenly raises the slab to it's original location. This process can even be used on large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor.More Information
