When you have water in the basement following heavy rainfall, it is never good. If this water is not removed, it will keep you from having the ability to store items in the area and even stop you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually cause mold and mildew to grow which could lead to dangerous health problems. If you're noticing standing water in your basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can evaluate the water and help implement a basement waterproofing solution that will prevent water from coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This system will prevent the growth of mold and help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, a media room, or even an additional bedroom.
If there are cracking in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your window or doors, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Mansfield area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil go up and down throughout the year. They are also caused by poor soil compaction during the building of your home. Our professionals can install a network of piers under your home which will shift the load of your home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally improperly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Slanting or cracked concrete slabs are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether you've got a large parking area or patio that is starting to sink or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services will help level the section and prevent future problems without the cost and dealing with the hassles of removing it and replacing it. We have two main methods to accomplish these repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly levels the section to it's proper location. This system works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs that include garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process utilizes a specific system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to increase the strength and help stop it from breaking again.
