It is crucial that as soon as you see a problem with the basement, foundation, or crawl space you contact an experienced repair company. We recommend this as there are quite a few potentially dangerous issues that will happen along with these issues such as mold, reduced structural integrity, and even permanent foundation damage. If you require our basement waterproofing services to stop water damaging your home, foundation repair services to stop cracks from growing in the foundation, or crawl space services to control water in the crawl space, or even our concrete lifting or leveling services to fix your sinking patio, our experts are here to help you.
If you've seen standing water in your basement following heavy rain, it is never good. When this water is not controlled, it will prevent you from being able to store items in the area and even stop you from being able to fully use the space. Excess moisture and humidity can also cause mold and mildew to grow which could ultimately lead to life-threatening health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the flooding and help create a basement waterproofing solution that will stop water from coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This will control the growth of mold and help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a media room, or even a spare bedroom.
If there are cracks in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the windows or doorways, this is a sign that there are problems with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Wilkes Barre area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are also caused by inadequate compaction when your home was being built. Our experts can install a network of piers under your home that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system 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 will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Slanting or settling concrete walkways are both unattractive and dangerous. Whether you have a long seating area or set of stairs that is starting to sink or a small section of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services will help get it level and keep it from being a problem again while keeping you from spending the cost and working with the work of breaking it up and re-pouring it. We use two primary services to implement our repairs. The first utilizes expanding polyurethane foam that we injected under the sinking slab that slowly and evenly returns the slab to it's proper location. This process 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 uses a specialized system of epoxy and sealing to seal the crumbling or broken concrete to increase the strength and help prevent it from breaking again.
