If you have standing water in the basement following a heavy rain, this is not good. When this water stays around, it can keep you from being able to keep items in the basement and even keep you from using that space as another room. Excess moisture and humidity can also cause the growth of mildew and mold which could ultimately lead to dangerous health problems. If there is standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can look into the flooding and help create a basement waterproofing solution which can prevent water coming in and prevent any additional damage from happening. This can stop the growth of mold as well as help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.More Information

No matter how you are using your basement, if you've noticed a bowed wall issue, you need to contact an expert to keep the wall from becoming serious. If the basement walls bow too far inward, the worst case scenario is they fall into the basement. This could result in the foundation walls not being able to support the building properly and can cause you to have to either replace or rebuild the length of wall of the foundation. It is a good thing that we have available a variety of different solutions we can use to fix and prevent bowing or buckling basement walls from becoming a problem in the future which can help save money in the long run and prevent your walls from collapsing.More Information
Settling or cracked concrete driveway slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. It doesn't matter if there is a long driveway or the patio that is cracking or a small section of a path, the concrete lifting process we use can allow us to level the slab and restore it to the proper height, preventing the potential cost and work involved with removing it and replacing it. We do this with a method known as mudjacking. This process features pumping a cement slurry that safely and evenly raises the 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.More Information
