If you have cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of the window or door frames, this is a sign that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Canton area due to the moisture content of the soil go up and down during the year. These issues are sometimes caused by inadequate compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Unstable or crumbling concrete walkways are not only ugly but can be dangerous too. Regardless of if you have a long driveway or set of stairs that is starting to sink or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services can help get it level and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and dealing with the work of breaking it up and replacing it. We use two main methods to accomplish these repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that safely and evenly lifts the section to it's proper location. This process works so well, we can perform lifting on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process uses a specific system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problematic or broken concrete to increase the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.
