When you've got standing water in the basement after a heavy rain, this is never good. If this water is not removed, it will prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even keep you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity also has the ability cause the growth of mildew and mold which could be responsible for life threatening health problems. If you're noticing standing water in your basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can look into the flooding and help design a basement waterproofing solution which will stop water coming in and prevent any additional damage from happening. This system will also stop the growth of mold and also enable you to be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even an extra bedroom.More Information

It does not matter how you are using the space, if you have a bowing wall problem, it should be looked at by a professional to keep the issue from becoming serious.

This could lead to your basement walls not having the ability to support your home safely and could force you to have to replace or rebuild the length of wall of the foundation. Thankfully we have available a variety of different options we can use to repair and stop bowing or buckling foundation walls from turning into an issue in the future which can keep your basement walls from bowing any longer.More Information
Sinking or cracked concrete slabs are not only unattractive but they can be dangerous as well. It doesn't matter if you've got a driveway or your patio that is sinking or a smaller part of sidewalk, the concrete lifting process we use can allow us to level the slab and return it to the correct location, avoiding the potential cost and work involved with tearing it up and replacing it. We do this with a method commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process involves pumping a cement slurry that safely and evenly returns the slab to it's original location. This process can even be used on very large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor slab.More Information
