If you have cracking in the foundation or if you’re noticing them at the corners of your window or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Leslie area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. They are also caused by improper soil compaction during original construction of the home. Our experts can install a network of piers under your foundation which will shift the load of the home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
