When there is water in the basement after a heavy rain, this is not good. If this water is present, it can prevent you from being able to store items in the area and even prevent you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity can also cause the growth of mildew and mold which could eventually be a cause of life threatening health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can evaluate the leaking and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which can prevent water coming in and prevent any additional damage from occurring. This system can prevent the growth of mold as well as make it so you can have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even an extra bedroom.More Information
If you have a basement, you will probably be using it as a place to store your extra stuff or it is a finished area. It does not matter how your basement is being used, if you have a bowing wall issue, it should be looked at by a professional to prevent the issue from becoming serious. If the basement walls buckle too far inward, the worst case scenario is they fall into the basement. This could result in the foundation walls not being able to support the building properly and could force you to have to replace or rebuild the whole wall in the basement. It is good for you that we use a number of different solutions we can use to fix and stop bowing foundation walls from being a problem in the future which can prevent the walls from collapsing.More Information
Sinking or cracked concrete garage slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Whether you have a long driveway or the patio that is settling or a short part of sidewalk, the concrete lifting process we use can allow us to level the slab and restore it to the proper location, avoiding the cost and work involved with tearing it up and replacing it. This is done with a method commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process features injecting a slurry that safely and evenly returns the sinking slab to it's original location. We are able to use this on very large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
