Dallas T. is a homeowner in Lake City, SC. Dallas’s home in Lake City isn’t his primary home. He bought this home about 5 years ago to be able to travel down to see his grandkids. Over time, in Dallas’s absence from the home, the concrete walkway had begun to settle. This got extreme with the amount of rain and erosion that took place at his home. After a while, the slab had fallen completely down from its original position. When Dallas returned and found his walkway like that he knew that something had to be done about it. He called Cantey Foundation Specialists after his son recommended us to him. Specialist Alex Lovette came out to Dallas’s home for a free inspection. He then explained that Cantey’s patented PolyLevel process was the solution he was looking for. Team Leader TJ and Team Member Jeremy came out to Dallas’s home and efficiently raised the slab back into place. Afterward, Dallas was so happy that his walkway was just like new again. Now Dallas can come down and visit his grandkids in peace knowing that Cantey did the job right.

Experienced Foundation Repair Contractor Serving Lake City & Nearby

Are you worried about the state of your home's foundation in Lake City? Over time, changing soil conditions, rainfall, and other factors can impact the area around your home, resulting in a sinking, settling foundation. When that happens, your home will display a range of symptoms, such as bowing walls, sagging floors, sticking windows, and more. These common foundation problems not only make life at home uncomfortable but are potentially dangerous.

While foundation problems tend to develop slowly, you will find yourself investing in costly repairs down the line if you don't keep an eye on them and make improvements when necessary. Additionally, when it's time to sell your home, you'll either have to resolve all foundation problems or take a hit on your home's overall value.

The good news? Cantey Foundation Specialists offers a variety of affordable, proven solutions for all of your foundation repair needs. Our specialists can inspect your foundation, pinpointing all problem areas and coming up with the best plan of action.

Foundation Problems We Fix:

  • House settling and sinking
  • Windows and doors sticking

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Sump Pump Installation Contractor

Humid crawl spaces are breeding grounds for mold and rot, causing structural and air quality problems for the rest of your home. What's even worse is that traditional methods of keeping crawl spaces dry, such as venting, have been proven time and time again to create more problems than they solve.

Cantey Foundation Specialists offers complete crawl space repair and encapsulation services using the CleanSpace® system. By installing a crawl space vapor barrier and additional products like thermal insulation, dehumidifiers, drainage matting, and a crawl space sump pump, you can create a fully enclosed, arid crawl space that won't allow for any moisture to enter.

If your crawl space has rotted or has sagging support joists, we can also assist by installing our galvanized steel crawl space support jacks. Your crawl space bears the weight of the floors above, so having stable supports is crucial!

Crawl Space Problems We Fix:

  • Buckled or cold floors upstairs
  • Humidity & condensation
  • Mold or moisture damage
  • Musty odors
  • Pooling water
  • Wood rot around framing & floor registers
  • Insect & pest infestations
  • Soggy, hanging, or fallen insulation

Our Crawl Space Repair Products:

  • CleanSpace® Crawl Space Encapsulation System
  • Crawl Space Sump pump installation & repair
  • Energy-efficient dehumidifiers
  • Crawl space supports
  • Crawl space insulation
  • Drainage systems & access wells
  • Vents, doors & access wells
  • Crawl space structural repair

Contact Cantey Foundation Specialists today to talk to learn more about our crawl space encapsulation and repair solutions. We proudly serve Lake City, SC and the surrounding area in Florence County.

Professional Aluminum Gutter Installation in Lake City

Your gutters are more important than you may think. Healthy gutters help maintain a healthy home, transporting water and debris from your roof and safely depositing it away from areas where it can cause damage. While you might think faulty or ineffective gutters limit damages to the roof, think again. Foundations can be at risk as well. Without properly-fitted, high-quality seamless gutters, you might find yourself with a wet basement, leaky roof, or other avoidable household issues. You need a gutter contractor you can trust to make sure the job gets done right.

Cantey Foundation Specialists installs durable seamless gutters constructed from single pieces of high-strength aluminum. With this construction technique, our aluminum gutters avoid the pitfalls of traditional seamed gutters, like debris clogs. Seamless gutters are just one component of our fully-customized gutter systems. We install innovative gutter guards as well, which permanently eliminate the need to clean your gutters. We can guarantee a clog-free seamless gutter experience with safe water evacuation for years to come!

We are the Lake City area’s premier gutter contractor, specializing in aluminum gutter installation, gutter guards, downspout extensions, and more. Call us today for your no-cost, no-obligation gutter replacement estimate!
