Foundation problems are fairly common in the West Bloomfield area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year.

Our team can install a piering system under your home which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
