Concrete Repair

Uneven Concrete SlabWe have a crew of trained, professional, and seasoned concrete repair specialists on our staff. We can fix everything from sinking concrete slabs to wall or floor cracks in a concrete foundation. If you have noticed that a slab is not leveled, then you could benefit from our polyjacking services. Polyjacking is a technique used to lift a concrete slab and stabilize it. This process involves drilling small holes into the damaged concrete surface. Next, a polyurethane resin foam is injected into the holes. The foam fills up the entire space underneath the slab and lifts it back to the level where it needs to be. The tiny holes in the concrete are patched over.

To take care of cracks, we use a similar polyurethane material, and it will be injected into the crevice from the earth to the surface of the crack. This will help to seal it off permanently so that it doesn't let water seepage inside where it could cause additional problems.

For concrete floor repairs, we can fix cracks, un-level areas, and joints. We can also apply protection and secondary containment products to keep the flooring surface safe from heat and extreme cold temperatures. This will help to keep it strong and durable for years to come.

We do work on sidewalks, patios, porches, pool decks, driveways, garage floors, and basement floors.

Foundation Repair

The foundation is the base of your home or business. This is why you must make sure that it is safe, strong, and stable. If you are in need of foundation repair services, we are the company to call. We can fix bowing basement walls, wall or floor cracks, or a sinking and settling foundation.

Regardless of how minor or severe the structural problem seems to you, it's still something that you need to have inspected by a professional. Our team of structural experts at Rigidze Foundation Technologies will be able to pinpoint the cause of the problem and come up with a plan of action for getting it resolved.

If you have a sinking foundation, we have a variety of steel piers we can install. This includes helical piers, helical tiebacks, and new construction piers. Settlement is a common structural problem that is typically caused from poor soil conditions around a home.

If you have sinking foundation, this is another common structural problem that is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding the foundation. We can fix the problem by installing helical wall anchors. The anchors will be able to reduce the amount of pressure being applied to the basement walls, and they will also be able to stabilize the foundation to make it stronger.

Basement Waterproofing

When it comes to basement waterproofing, we can install both interior and exterior waterproofing systems. If you have noticed water under your home or business, there are several ways in which it can make its way inside. Water has been known to get into buildings through wall or floor cracks, over the top of the foundation, through leaking window wells, through a clogged floor drain, through the cove joint (spot where the wall meets the floor), or the water may be there because of a leaking pipe or a sewer line backup problem. Regardless of why this moisture is here, it must be taken care of immediately before it causes damage to walls, floors, ceilings, or to anything you may have stored here.

Inside of the building, we can install drainage systems, sump pumps and battery backups, dehumidifiers, and more. Outside of the building, we can install exterior waterproofing membranes, french drains and other drainage systems, and we can also be sure that the lawn is properly graded so that moisture doesn't pool up next to the foundation walls.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

A crawl space needs special attention. If it isn't properly sealed off from the outside environment, it's only a matter of time before it starts having problems with leaks, humidity, and unwanted critters. The solution to this problem is to have crawl space encapsulation work done. It's fast, cost-effective, and it will boost the value of your property. This kind of project will involve the installation of a vapor barrier, floor liner, sump pump with battery backup, and a dehumidifier can be installed, as well, for controlling the amount of moisture in the air.

When you have the space encapsulated, you will never again need to worry about moisture damaging wooden support beams that help to hold up the weight of the structure, and you will also never again need to worry about mold or bacteria growth, or about a critter infestation (termites, roaches, mice, rats, snakes, spiders, skunks, etc.!
