Foundation Repair

To prevent foundation problems from becoming an issue in your home, you should inspect your home for the following symptoms of foundation failure:

  • Chipping or crumbling foundations
  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Wall, floor, and ceiling cracks
  • Leaning or tilting chimney
  • Sloped or uneven floors
  • Gaps around the windows or doors
  • Bowing or leaning walls

These symptoms could indicate that the expansive clay soil beneath your foundation has started to move, causing foundation shifting, settling, heaving, or cracking. Our professional team can find the cause of the problem and come up with a the most effective solution. Some of the solutions that we use to fix foundation issues include: helical piers, plate anchors, and helical tiebacks.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal

The crawlspace is a very important portion of your home – much of the air that you breathe throughout the rest of your home comes from the crawlspace and rises to the upper levels. That is why it is important to keep your crawlspace free of harmful substances like mold. Mold growth can infect the air in your crawlspace and and the rest of your home, leading to health issues for your family.

The best way to remedy mold issues is to invest in our mold blasting services and crawlspace waterproofing services. We use mold blasting to safely get rid of mold in your crawlspace. Once the mold is gone, this can be followed up with crawlspace waterproofing, or encapsulation. This is done with the installation of a vapor barrier made of plastic or foil sheeting.
