Regardless of how you are using the space, if you've got a bowing wall issue, it needs to be addressed soon to stop the wall from getting worse. If the supporting walls buckle too far inward, they can end up failing and falling into the basement. This could lead to the foundation walls not being able to support the home safely and can cause you to have to rebuild or even replace the entire wall in the basement.

Settling or cracking concrete slabs are not only unattractive but they can be dangerous as well. Whether there is a driveway or the patio that is cracking or a short area of a path, the concrete lifting process we use can help level the slab and restore it to the proper height, avoiding the potential cost and hassle of removing it and replacing it. This is done using a process known as mudjacking. This process features pumping a grout that safely and evenly raises the sinking slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
