For those Richmond residents who have a crawl space instead of a basement we provide similar waterproofing services. To waterproof the bottom of your home we use crawl space encapsulation. Having open, vented crawl spaces in the old building code was a mistake resulting from bad home science. Unfortunately you may have an older home that purposefully has a vented crawl space.
To fix the problem we seal all the crawl space vents and provide a sealable entrance to the crawl space. We then lay down a thin layer of foam insulation on the floor and rigid foam insulation on the walls. A layer of thick vinyl vapor-barrier is placed on top of the insulation and sealed. The area is now rid of outside air and water. By also installing a crawl space dehumidifier we control the relative humidity of the space preventing mold and rot from developing. You now have a clean, dry crawl space and warm, mold-free floors.
In addition to our crawl space encapsulation and sealing solutions, we offer homeowners of Richmond permanent crawl space repair. If your home is suffering from drywall cracks, uneven floors, doors or windows not properly closing, odds are you have a sinking or sagging crawl space. We offer a wide variety of products and solutions to help improve and permanently repair your home's crawl space

To ensure we have the right tools for your foundation repair project we have a host of different foundation repair products. For bowing walls we use wall anchors to pull the wall back to its original position. If you are property restrictions on the area around your home we can also use I-Beam Wall braces or a carbon wall reinforcing system. For sunken floors over your crawl space we install crawl space support jacks. Finally, if your entire foundation has begun to sink we have foundation piers and slab piers to drill down to load bearing soil and lift your home back to its original position.
We are part of the Foundation Supportworks network which means the foundation repair products that we use have been designed and tested by structural engineers. We know that they work and we provide a 25 year warranty against manufacturing defects. Our installation experts are trained and experienced. You can expect fast installation of a permanent foundation solution.
Traditionally sunken concrete slabs have been fixed with a method known as mudjacking or slab jacking. This involves drilling large holes into the concrete slab and then pumping a pressurized mud/cement slurry underneath the slab through the holes. The pressured slurry lifts the slab back to its original position and then cures to form a solid base.
This method has been used by foundation contractors for years. We have greatly improved the method. Instead of using a thick concrete slurry to lift the slab we use PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyLEVEL foam. In much the same way the foam is injected through holes beneath the slab where it expands to fill any voids and lifts the sunken slab. However, PolyLEVEL has many advantages over traditional mudjacking.
First PolyLEVEL is injected through much smaller holes. It is also much lighter than the slurry which means no additional stress on a weak soil base. It is not biodegradable so it won't be washed away with rainfall. Lastly it cures much, much quicker. While you have to wait days for concrete to cure PolyLEVEL reaches 90% strength in less than an hour! We use PolyLEVEL to fix sunken sidewalks, driveways, stairs, pool decks, patios and more.
