If you've seen water in the basement following a large rainfall, this is not good. If this water stays around, it will keep you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even prevent you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually cause the growth of mildew and mold which could lead to dangerous health problems. If you're noticing standing water in your basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can investigate the leaking and help come up with a basement waterproofing solution that will stop water from coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring.

If you've noticed cracks in the foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of windows or doors, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not move when closing them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Utica area due to the moisture content of the soil rising and falling during the year. The problems are occasionally caused by inadequate compaction while the home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed off and regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters. They are known for having humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as prevent unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Slanting or crumbling concrete slabs are both unattractive and dangerous. Regardless of if you have a long parking area or patio that is breaking up or a smaller section of sidewalk, our concrete repair services can help level the section and prevent future problems while keeping you from spending the cost and dealing with the work of removing it and replacing it. We use two main methods to accomplish our repairs. The first utilizes an expanding polyurethane foam that we injected below the sinking slab that carefully and safely levels the slab to its proper location. This system works so well, we can even perform leveling on very large slabs such as garage floors or even a sinking basement floor slab. The second process utilizes a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to restore the rigidity and keep it from breaking again.
