Foundation Repair

A healthy foundation is key to maintaining the structure of your home and keeping you and your family safe. If issues continue to occur, this can cause irreversible damage and can reduce the value of your home – as much as losing 30% of your asking price when you sell your home. If you believe you’re seeing signs of foundation problems, there are several repair options to explore while you are home. A free inspection from a foundation expert can uncover specific problems and the right solutions to meet your home’s unique repair needs.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Checked off one or two of the boxes for experiencing symptoms? If so, any foundational and other issues in the crawl space can affect the integrity of your home. Water is the primary source of most issues and can cause high humidity within the space. Mold, wood rot, mildew, and insects thrive in this type of environment, so it is vital to have a clean crawl space and not have these issues creep into the interior of your home. If any of these issues are visible, don’t hesitate to get a free professional evaluation today.

Basement Waterproofing

Do not allow mold and dust mites to move into your home, because not only will it be an unpleasant sight, they are among the leading causes of allergies and asthma. Dust mites and mold live in high-humidity environments with soft surfaces, like your bed or living room couch. By waterproofing your basement, you can often avoid costly structural problems and health issues.

Concrete Lifting

Cracking, sinking, uneven concrete slabs are dangerous tripping hazards for you and your family. However, there are a few concrete repair options available so you no longer have to live with this problem. Of these options, polyurethane foam injection is the preferred concrete leveling method over concrete replacement and mud jacking due to its many benefits.
