If you have cracks in your foundation or if you’ve seen them at the corners of your windows or door frames, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Garden City area as a result of the moisture content of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your foundation which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious 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 close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
