Concrete is a versatile and important material used in many areas of a property. Due to that, plus the overall complexity of a home’s foundation and the ground around it, our experts have learned a variety of services.
For foundation work, our services include:
- Carbon Fiber Repair
- Block Repair
- Core Filling
These services are best for when a foundation has damage and needs repair to properly support the home. Natural causes like shifting ground, the freeze thaw, and age will play a role in the state of your foundation over time, which is why it’s important for homeowners to get it inspected every 5 years, especially if it’s been awhile since any repair work. Other causes, like improper drainage, will also take a toll on your foundation and could cause flooding in your basement. This is why we also offer services that solve water intrusion problems.
As the ground around the home shifts, it can cause water to move towards your home instead of away from it during events like heavy thunderstorms or oversaturated soil. Then, homeowners will start to see flooding or wet floors in their basement. Plus, when windowsills are not properly built above the grade, they can be channels for water as well. To fix this, we evaluate the land to see where it could be improved.
Drain Tile Repair/Replacement
These are an important part of your home’s defense against water intrusions. These systems are key in making sure water is diverted away from the basement of your home. If water does get through, then the drain tile works to move it out of the home. However, when a drain tile isn’t working property or have stopped working altogether, then it needs expert repair.
As concrete experts, we also handle:
- Concrete slabs
- Garage floors
When a foundation has issues, it can also affect other areas of your home, such as the concrete slabs in the basement or garage floors. Our experts can handle it all: foundation repair and replacement of a damaged slab so your home looks good as new. In terms of exterior features such as patios, sidewalks, steps, and driveways, they are beneficial for the owner’s safety and curb appeal. Cracked sidewalks or steps often cause injuries, and it will only get worse due to the temperatures expanding and contracting over the seasons.
