Wall TieBacks

The system is a property owner's alternative to completely removing and rebuilding basement walls that have become cracked, leaning or bowed as a result of pressures exceeding the allowable design capacity of the wall. Whether you have a concrete block, clay, poured concrete, timber or stone wall, this versatile system will work for you.

Helical Piers

Helical piers, also called anchors or screw piles, are deep foundation solutions used to secure new or repair existing foundations from vertical movement or sinking. They are threaded into the ground which minimized installation time. Helical piers transfer weight to load bearing soil instead of unstable soil, and at the same time lift your foundation back to its original position.

Concrete Lifting

Mudjacking, concrete raising, concrete lifting, concrete leveling, slab jacking are all different terms describing the same thing, lifting your sunken concrete back to level. 

Mudjacking is a simple yet cost effective way to raise sinking concrete. How? Simply, a pattern of 1-1/2" holes are drilled through the sunken concrete and a slurry mixture is pumped underneath concrete to bring it back to level.

Mudjacking not only levels out concrete, but our process strengthens the concrete base to avoid sinking in the future. We offer a 3 year warranty on all completed mudjacking jobs to ensure quality work and great customer service. 

What can be mudjacked? 

  • Garage floors
  • Sidewalks
  • Porches
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Indoor Floors
  • Pool Decks
  • Stoops
  • Steps
  • Commercial & Residential Properties
