If you're noticing cracks in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of windows or door frames, this is an indicator that there is a problem with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Dupo area as the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. The problems are sometimes caused by inadequate soil compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a network of piers under your home which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.More Information
If there is standing water in your basement after a big storm, this is not good. If this water stays around, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity can also cause mold and mildew to grow which could in the future be responsible for health problems. If there is standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help design a basement waterproofing system which can control water coming in and prevent any additional problems from occurring. This system can stop the growth of mold and also make it so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.More Information
If your home has a basement, they are used as either storage or you have the space finished. Regardless of how you are using the space, if you've noticed a buckling wall issue, it should be looked at by a professional to keep the wall from getting worse. If the supporting walls buckle too far out of alignment, the worst case scenario is they fall into the basement. This could result in the foundation walls not having the ability to hold up the home properly and can cause you to have to either replace or rebuild the length of wall of the foundation. Thankfully we have a variety of different solutions we can use to fix and prevent bowing foundation walls from turning into an issue in the future which will help save money in the long run and prevent your walls from collapsing.More Information
Sinking or cracking concrete garage slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Whether the problem is a driveway or the patio that is sinking or a short section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services will allow us to get it level and return it to the proper location, preventing the cost and hassle of tearing it out and replacing it. We use a process known as mudjacking. This process involves injecting a cement slurry that safely and evenly lifts the sinking slab to it's original location. We are able to use this on large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab.More Information
