    Waterproofing

    We create quality waterproofing solutions to help you withstand any storm and prevent damage to your property and valuables.

    We offer interior and exterior waterproofing options for homes and businesses. Our services include under grade waterproofing, concrete waterproofing, restoration waterproofing, deck coating, elastomeric coating, and crack repair system. Our goal is to protect your property from weathering and prevent water damage to your home or business with comprehensive waterproofing services to meet your needs.

    Often, the best way to solve the problem of water in the basement is actually from the exterior of your home. This process begins with digging around the exterior of the foundation to the footing, the original drain tiles are inspected and replaced, and the wall is sealed with waterproof tar and sheeting, before gravel is placed on top of the drain tile, and the dirt is replaced. This method is more effective as a lasting solution for many homeowners.

    Our Step-By-Step Process

    When you're in need of replacement, it's important to know which services you can expect in exchange for your money. We go the extra mile to ensure our customers receive first-rate service every time:

    • Choosing materials that coincide with your home's location, style, and available funds is vital. Damages caused by subpar materials can progress insidiously if they're not noticed in time, and often cause severe structural issues. To meet your needs and prevent future pricey complications, our professionals use only the most superior materials.
    • To ensure the new roof is secure, we'll make it a point to strip the old roof to the deck and check for any weak spots that need repairing.
    • After we've completed all necessary repairs, we'll install a drip edge to protect the underside of the roof's surface from any water collection.
    • Ice and water create moisture build-up and can damage an unprotected roof over time. For added fortification, we'll install an ice and water shield over the roof decking.
    • Afterward, our team will add an underlayment over the roof's surface. An underlayment adds another line of defense against moisture retention and build-up.
    • Once the underlayment is in place, we'll begin adding metal flashings and diverters in crucial areas around the roof, including channels and chimneys. After they're in place, we'll secure them with a sealant to create a shield against water seepage.
    • In addition to metal flashing and diverters, we'll also install ridge vents to promote greater air-flow in the attic. We'll also add rib caps to protect the ridge vents and add the last finishing touches on the new roof.
    • Lastly, we'll take the time clean the jobsite thoroughly, removing any debris and potentially dangerous items

    10 Helpful Measurement Suggestions

    Paying close attention to measurements, as well as aesthetic appeal, can make your finalized kitchen all the more convenient and harmonized:

    • To improve efficiency and balance, it's a good rule of thumb to ensure the area between the sink, refrigerator, and stove, or the work triangle, measures out to 26' or less. No single side should be longer than 9' or shorter than 4'.
    • It's always a good idea to choose at least 13' of base cabinets, 12' of wall cabinets, and 11’ of countertop in kitchens that are smaller than 150 sq. feet. Larger areas, however, should be outfitted with at least 16' of base cabinets, 15 1/2' of wall cabinets, and 16 1/2' of countertop.
    • Work aisles should be at least 42" wide in one-cook kitchens, and about 48" wide in multi-cook kitchens. This provides added convenience and accessibility.
    • For substantial counter-space to complete prep work, cooking and, aim for no less than 24" in on one side of your sink and about 18" on the other side.
    • To ensure you have enough space to easily unload groceries, measure at least 15" of counter-space on the handle side of the refrigerator. For side-by-side models, leave 15" of room open on both sides. Additionally, you can add a grocery landing (at the most 48" away) across from the refrigerator.
    • Installing a dishwasher within 36" of the sink's edge, and leaving at least 21" of space open next to it provides greater accessibility and faster, easier cleanup.
    • Specifying about 15" of counter-space that's at least 16" deep within proximity of a microwave or oven is a good way to promote efficiency and ease-of-use.
    • Installing entry, appliance, cabinet doors carefully and strategically prevents obstructions, making it easier to move about the area freely.
    • Setting up work counters that are of varying heights can prevent repetitive-motion injury. For instance, counters used for chopping and seated-work should be somewhere between 28" and 36" off of the floor. For general kitchen tasks, they should be between 36" to 48". For taller cooks, counters may be higher.
    • Correctly installing a cabinet above a cooktop is vital. For fireproof materials, allow for at least 24" of clearance. On the other hand, a clearance of 30" is needed for more vulnerable materials.

    Bathrooms


    When thinking about remodeling your bathroom if you come to us you'll be making a wise choice. We are going to try our hardest to do it as quickly as possible with the best workmanship there is to offer. these are some great tip's to think about.  

     

    Tip # 1

    With some home remodeling projects, you can make decisions as you go along. A bathroom remodel does not provide you with that same luxury. You should always have a definitive plan written down before starting and should try to stick with it as much as possible. Your plan should cover the following:

    • An estimated time-frame for the project
    • If you want to put in new appliances, have models picked out and written down
    • A final layout for the finished bathroom
    • A definite understanding of how many contractors you’re going to need to hire

     

    Tip # 2

    You should never attempt bathroom remodeling work yourself unless you are 100% positive that you can do it properly. This means that you should never try bathroom remodeling work that you have never done yourself or have no training in because any mistake you make during a bathroom remodel could potentially send the total price of the project soaring. Most people hire contractors to handle the following:

    • Specialty grout and tile work for walls, floors, or shower surrounds
    • Anything related to plumbing
    • Installing any electronic fixtures or new electrical outlets
    • Laying new baseboards or reconstructing walls
    • Any miscellaneous demolition work that is required
