If you have water in the basement following a large rainfall, it is not good. If this water is not controlled, it can prevent you from having the ability to store 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 ultimately be a cause of life threatening health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can investigate the issue and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which can control water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening.

Sinking or cracked concrete garage slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Regardless of if you have a long driveway or the patio that is settling or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting method can allow us to level the slab and restore it to the proper height, avoiding the potential cost and hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. This is done using a process known as mudjacking. This process features pumping a cement slurry that safely and evenly raises 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
