If you've got water in the basement after a heavy rainfall, it is not good. When this water is present, it can prevent you from having the ability to store items in the area and even keep you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity also has the ability cause the growth of mildew and mold which could eventually be responsible for life threatening health problems. If you've seen standing water in your basement, you should contact us so one of our experts can evaluate the water and help create a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This can prevent the growth of mold and make it so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even an extra bedroom.More Information
If you have a basement, it is likely being used as either storage or it is used for extra space. No matter how you are using your basement, if there is a bowing wall issue, it should be looked at by a professional to keep the wall from becoming serious. If your foundation walls bow too far inward, the worst case scenario is they fall into the space. This could result in your foundation walls not having the ability to support your home safely and could force you to have to rebuild or even replace the whole wall in the basement. It is a good thing that we have a variety of different options we can use to repair and prevent bowing or buckling foundation walls from becoming a problem in the future which will keep your basement walls from bowing any longer.More Information
Settling or cracking concrete slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Whether you've got a driveway or your patio that is sinking or a small part of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services will help get it level and restore it to the proper location, avoiding the potential cost and work involved with tearing it up and replacing it. This is done using a method commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process features pumping a cement slurry that safely and evenly returns the settling slab to it's original location. We are able to use this on very large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
