It is critical that once you've found an issue with the foundation, crawl space, or basement that you get in touch with a trusted repair company. We say this as there are a number of additional issues that will happen along with these issues including mold, structural damage, and even permanent foundation damage. If you are in need of our basement waterproofing services to prevent water from entering your home, foundation repair products to stop cracks from growing in the foundation, crawl space services to control humidity below the home, or even our concrete lifting or leveling services to level your settling driveway, our professionals are here to help you.
It is never good if there is stagnant water in the basement after a big rainfall. When this water stays around, it will prevent you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually cause mold and mildew to grow which could be responsible for health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can investigate the water and help implement a basement waterproofing system that will stop water from coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This will control the growth of mold and make it so you can be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.
If you're noticing cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your window or door frames, this is a sign that there is a problem with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Rochester area due to the moisture content of the soil fluctuating throughout the year. They are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a system of piers under your home that will shift a load of your home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Unstable or crumbling concrete paths are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether you have a large parking area or set of stairs that is breaking up or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete leveling services will help level the section and restore it to being safe while keeping you from spending the cost and working around the work of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two main methods to accomplish our repairs. The first utilizes an expanding polyurethane foam that is injected below the sunken slab that slowly and evenly returns the concrete to its proper location. This process works so well, we are able to perform leveling on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second process involves a unique system of epoxy and sealing to correct the problem or break concrete to restore the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.
