When you have standing water in your basement after a large rainfall, it is not good. When this water stays around, it will keep you from being able to keep items in the basement and even keep you from using that space as another room. Excess moisture and humidity can also cause mold and mildew to grow which can lead to health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can evaluate the issue and help design a basement waterproofing solution which will prevent water coming in and prevent any additional problems from occurring. This will also stop the growth of mold as well as help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.
If you're seeing cracking in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the window or doorways, 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 are difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Syracuse area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down throughout the year. The problems are occasionally caused by inadequate compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your home which will shift the 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 likely a part of the home that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Sinking or cracked concrete walkways are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether you've got a large driveway or slab that is sinking or a little section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services can help repair the area and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and working with the work of tearing it up and re-pouring it. We have two main services to accomplish the repairs. The first uses expanding polyurethane foam that is injected under the sunken slab that carefully and safely lifts the slab to it's original location. This system works so well, we can perform lifting on very large slabs like garage floors or even a sunken basement floor slab. The second service uses a unique system of epoxy and sealing to correct the crumbling or broken concrete to restore the strength and keep it from breaking again.
