Soil conditions in Ithaca, NY can create foundation problems over time. If this is the case with your home, you need a trusted contractor you can call before a bad situation turns catastrophic. Woodford Bros., Inc. has been helping homeowners with their foundation issues since 1965, so we understand the best techniques to handle even the most complex foundation problems. We've built our company to provide reliable service attuned to the needs of our customers, and as a family company, we value the relationships we get to create with you!
Foundation problems can emerge in many ways. Foundation settlement and other issues can lead to bowing walls, sagging floors, interior cracks, tilting chimneys, and much more. But because foundations aren't easily accessible, it can be difficult to tell that there's an issue or even that your foundation is the cause of that issue. If you suspect any kind of foundation trouble, or if you're about to sell your home, completing a foundation inspection to discover what's going on beneath your home is a good first step.
If foundation settlement, heave, street creep, or any other problem is found to be affecting your home, Woodford Bros., Inc. can provide proven foundation repair solutions that work with any home. Traditional foundation repair methods like total foundation replacement are completely unnecessary and very disruptive. Using products created by Foundation Supportworks, we can quickly and effectively resolve any foundation problem your home might be experiencing. The foundation repair products at our disposal include:
When sunken concrete is the crux of the issue, we have a special tool to use - PolyLevel. A strong, lightweight foaming agent, PolyLevel is injected underneath a concrete slab via a small hole in the ground. This foam raises concrete slabs to their original positions. Fifteen minutes after application, the area is ready for normal use, so you don't have to wait around before walking on your driveway or sidewalk again!
Besides foundation repair, another way Woodford Bros., Inc. keeps homeowners safe is through radon mitigation. Radon is an odorless, invisible gas with deadly consequences. As the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking, radon gas is responsible for claiming tens of thousands of lives every year. Radon is formed from the decay of uranium found naturally in the soils beneath your home, but these levels will differ dramatically - even amongst neighbors in Ithaca. If radon levels in your home are above EPA recommended levels, it's time to call in a radon specialist.
Radon mitigation at Woodford Bros., Inc. starts with an inspection of your home to determine the best kind of mitigation system. We need to be able to redirect radon, venting it out of your home and ensuring it does not return. Every home's ventilation is unique, so it's crucial to work with a professional to get the most thorough results. You'll be happy to live in a radon-free environment, and it'll be easier to sell your home in the future when you already have a radon removal system in place.
