Concrete Lifting and Leveling

If your concrete is sinking, settling or sagging, our injection and lifting solutions are the perfect answer.

How Does Concrete Lifting and Leveling Work?

Mudjacking, Concrete Raising, Lifting, Sandjacking, and Slabjacking are similar methods of fixing an uneven surface.

Typically what happens is a professional will need to drill several small holes into the area that is declining or sinking. Once these quarter-sized drill holes are completed, we inject different types of products to lift the area from underneath. What’s used to lift it will change based on whats’ best for the area. Things like a masonry compound mixture or a closed cell polymer expanding foam that is completely safe for the environment are used. The concrete surface will slowly lift back up until it is level with its original setting. After that, we seal everything up so it’s strong and secure.

Where can you get this done?

Concrete raising can be performed just about anywhere that you have sunken or settled surface, which include:

  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Sidewalks
  • Seams and Seals
  • Garages
  • Basement Floors

If you consider the expense of replacing, just lifting concrete can be extremely affordable. It can frequently only take a couple of hours to complete the job, or in smaller cases with the right conditions there are environments where raising concreate areas allowed them to be used almost immediately after we finish the job. It’s definitely worth looking into this solution, as it is a highly affordable and cost effective approach when compared to other ways to fix the problem.

Fixing a Settling Slab

Settlement can affect all types of structures, regardless of what they are built upon or how they were built – the structure and the environment supporting it are two different parts that are easily shifting and changing over the years for any number of reasons. Whether you are dealing with a sinking slab in your basement, garage, driveway or patio, a cracked sunken slab with an uneven surface that can easily become a safety hazard.

Is Concrete Setting Normal?

Sinking concrete and ground settling are very common. When the soil is not compacted properly, if water runoff is not channeled properly, or when natural settling of earth over time take place, it can always happen.

The easiest and fastest way to fix without breaking the bank by removing it entirely and replacing? Just to fill the voids under the concrete, which will subsequently lift the concrete slab to it’s original height.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation

We’ll fix your uneven floors, foul odors, mold and structural damage in your home’s crawl space.

Trouble in Your Crawlspace? Trust Our Professional Solutions!

Why Homes Have a Crawl Space

Homes that are on cement slab foundations usually have a crawl space to provide an access point for electrical, plumbing, ventilation and gas hook-ups within the home. Many times a home that doesn’t have a basement will still require that it have a crawlspace or partial crawlspace in an area of the home that gives accessibility to various HVAC, wiring and conduits that serve the home.

When you have a crawl space, it’s much easier to get to these items and areas if there is something requiring installation. So your crawlspace is used frequently when the cable provider comes by or electrician, or perhaps any other common repair to piping, the ventilation system or a similar service provided to your home.

The other reason these exist is for flooding or flood-prone areas where it is possible that water will need a place to go before taking over what sits above the foundation – your home or property. Usually there is a system to pump this away from the home or allow it to drain away from the area after it is overtaken by water. In these cases, it’s even more critical to ensure that there aren’t any troubles with the system.

Some common issue that will arise:

  • Bugs, Animals and Rodents
  • Environmental Exposure Openings
  • Mildew, Fungus and Mold
  • Inadequate Insulation

If your residence or commercial property is experiencing structural decay, has poor air quality, or is serving as a breeding ground for a thriving mold colony, it’s time to address the issue before it’s too late.

Solutions for Crawl Space Issues Include:

Fixing or Installing a Sump Pump

The sump helps by removing liquids, which basement waterproofing pros will most likely focus on first.

Crawl Space Repair

Repairing the barrier around the crawlspace on the exterior or installing a vapor barrier on the interior to seal it.

Insulation of the Foundation

Helping to retain temperatures above or reduce cold floors and climate-based impact of basement on the environment above the area.

Our Crawl Space Solutions

We deliver complete crawlspace service, installation, insulation and repair to ensure that you have a long-lasting solution. The result is a a passive barrier for radon, insects and stopping warm, humid air from outside so all of these things are unable to entering the crawlspace to threaten the integrity of your home.

Your crawlspace can easily be an overlooked area that requires attention and protection from these types of risks. If moisture and humidity are allowed to take root in the area, the exposure to extensive mildew, mold, wood rot, and pest damage is apparent. Due to the nature of airflow requirements of every home and ventilation systems that are commonly installed, the impact on your home’s health as well as those who live in the home are very important. Sealing, securing and repairing your crawl space will ensure that your home is safe and serving it’s purpose with higher energy efficiency for years to come.
