When you've seen standing water in your basement after a heavy storm, this is never good. When this water is not controlled, it can keep you from being able to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from being able to fully use the space. Excess moisture and humidity can also harbor mold and mildew which can eventually be responsible for life threatening health problems. If you've seen standing water in your basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can evaluate the problem and help create a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from occurring. This system can also prevent the growth of mold and also help so you can be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even an additional bedroom.More Information
If your home has a basement, you will probably be using it as a storage area or you have the space finished. Regardless of how the space is being used, if you've got a bowing wall issue, you need to contact an expert to prevent the wall from getting worse. If your supporting walls buckle too far inward, it is possible they can collapse into the basement. This can lead to your basement walls not being able to support your home correctly and could force you to have to either replace or rebuild the whole wall in the basement. Thankfully we can use a variety of different options available to repair and stop bowing foundation walls from becoming a problem in the future which can keep your basement walls from bowing any longer.More Information
Sinking or cracking concrete driveway slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Regardless of if you've got an entire driveway or your patio that is cracking or a smaller area of sidewalk, our concrete lifting method can allow us to get it level and restore it to the proper location without the 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 injecting a grout that safely and evenly lifts the sinking slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor slab.More Information
