This is a home in North Charleston that had an old vapor barrier that over time came up and now they were noticing dust and musty smells in their home. Much of the air that you breathe in your home comes from your crawl space. They had us come out and replace their vapor barrier and also some of the wood damage that was found as a result of the inspection.

Audrey R. is a homeowner in Charleston, SC who has had some issues with her walls cracking. The main issue is the wall between the kitchen and the dinning room. She is worried that her home might be settling since that is a big issue around where she lives. After hearing about Cantey Foundation Specialists from a friend she decides to give us a call. Specialist Kendall Moore went to Audrey's home for a free inspection and found that her suspicions are correct, the home is settling. Kendall explains that Cantey's patented Smart Jack technology is the solution she needs. Smart Jacks act as the support that your home needs and that your stone piers may not provide anymore. Smart Jacks are built on a 2x2x2 hole filled with stone in order to displaces that weight caused by the home and decrease settling. Team Leader Dallas D. and Team Member Dallas E. quickly came to Aubrey's rescue and installed her Smart Jacks. This ensured Aubrey that her home's wall would be stable and prevent further cracking. Aubrey said she was pleased with the work done and was happy that Cantey did the job right.

Crawl space encapsulation and repair

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, or drainage matting if need be, 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 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!

Charleston, SC Basement Waterproofing

Does your basement leak or flood every time it rains? Do you have mold, musty smells, chalky looking deposits on basement walls, or does your basement feel really humid in general? Even though they might not seem that serious, all of these are signs that you may have a basement water problem.

A wet, moldy basement will spur allergy issues, lower home value, and make your basement an unusable space. But with a basement waterproofing system from Cantey Foundation Specialists, you can transform a damp basement into a dry, attractive space. Our basement waterproofing solutions, developed by Basement Systems, include many products and techniques:

  • Drainage systems
  • Sump pump installation & replacement
  • Basement dehumidifiers
  • Wall coverings
  • Basement flooring
  • Basement windows
  • Water heater flood protection

No matter how big or small or a water problem your basement may have, it's always prudent to act sooner rather than later - before mold grows and damages to your personal property add up. Cantey Foundation Specialists's proven basement waterproofing services can help you get your basement back to normal.

Woodworking Helps Property Flipper Get Started in Charleston, SC

Brian P. is a business man in Charleston, SC that enjoys taking older, run down homes and turning them into beautifully renovated houses. He often finds homes that need a complete overhaul which was the case for this project. Close to downtown Charleston sat a house that no one had touched in years. This home did not even have flooring to get started on renovations. Brian wanted to find the best company to help him get started on making this home beautiful once again. Someone else in Brian's line of business recommended that he call Cantey Foundation Specialists because of their woodworking skill. Brian called into Cantey and was set up with an appointment. System Design Specialist Craig Adams came out to the site and did an inspection of the entire home. Craig told Brian that Cantey could definitely do the woodworking it would take to start on this home. Brian felt confident with Cantey's ability after speaking with Craig and decided this was the company he wanted to assist him. Production Team Leader Sean Hawkes, Production Team Member Diego Sanchez, Production Team Member Jesus Gonzalez, Production Team Member Juan Ramirez, Production Team Member Matthew Williams, and Production Team Member Robert Gardner got to work and successfully completed the woodworking. Brian is now moving forward with his plans to make this home beautiful and is looking forward to working with Cantey again in the future.

Vicinity of S Palmer Dr in Charleston
The foundation problems were supposed to be repaired before closing on the house in 2015. It appears they were not corrected properly. The granite in the kitchen is starting to crack, the crack in the kitchen floor is getting worse. The kitchen floor makes a popping sound when walking on it and there is now a gap between the hardwood and ceramic floor. We know there is a foundation problem so we need to know what the problem is, how bad it is and we need an estimate on what it would cost to get it fixed.
