Foundation problems are fairly common in the East Alton area as a result of the moisture content of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built.

When you have standing water in the basement after a heavy rain, this is never good. If this water is present, it can prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from using that space as another room. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately cause mold and mildew to grow which can eventually be a cause of health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which can control water coming in and prevent any additional problems from happening. This can also stop the growth of mold and also help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even a spare bedroom.More Information
If you have a basement, it is likely being used as a storage area or you have the space finished. Regardless of how your basement is being used, if you have a bowing wall problem, it needs to be addressed soon to prevent the wall from becoming serious. If the foundation walls buckle too far out of alignment, it is possible they can collapse into the basement. This can result in the foundation walls not having the ability to hold up the building correctly and could force you to have to replace or rebuild the whole wall of the foundation. Thankfully we use a variety of different solutions we can use to repair and stop 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
Settling or cracked concrete driveway slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Whether you've got a driveway or the patio that is settling or a small part of a path, our concrete lifting method will help level the slab and return it to the proper location without the cost and work involved with tearing it out and replacing it. We use a method known as mudjacking. This process features pumping a grout that safely and evenly raises the settling slab to it's original location. This process can even be used on large slabs like garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab.More Information
