If you've got stagnant water in your basement after a big rain, this is never good. If this water is not controlled, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even keep you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity can ultimately cause the growth of mildew and mold which can ultimately lead to dangerous health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can investigate the flooding and help create a basement waterproofing solution that can stop water from coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This system can control the growth of mold and also make it so you can be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.
If you've seen cracks in your foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of the windows or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Scranton area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuating during the year. The problems are also caused by improper soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a network of piers under your foundation which will shift a load of your home to the piers and keep the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
If your home got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as prevent unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Sinking or settling concrete walkways are both unsafe and potentially dangerous. Whether you have a big seating area or slab breaking up or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help level the section and restore it to being safe while preventing the cost and dealing with the hassles of removing re-pouring it. We use two primary services to accomplish these repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that safely and evenly returns the slab to its original location. This process works so well, we can perform this service on very large slabs such as 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 help stop it from breaking again.
