Phuong N. moved to Columbia, SC a few years ago to take a surgical position at a local hospital. She loves her work and helping those that are in need. The home she bought in the area was ideal for her and she was content with her decision to move. That was until she started to have some allergy issues that prevented her from working. One day she noticed that there was mold growing on one of her vents in the bedroom. Phuong knew this had to be the cause of her getting sick. She did not know personally of any companies in the area that did crawl space repair so she turned to the internet. After a quick search she found Cantey Foundation Specialists and saw that they were a local company. Phuong called in a scheduled an appointment for a free inspection. System Design Specialist Jamie Beresford came out and did a thorough inspection of the crawl space. Jamie found that Phuong had quite a bit of moisture in her crawl space which was causing the mold growth. He sat down with her to explain the CleanSpace system that Cantey has. The CleanSpace system consists of a thick liner that is wrapped around each pier, covers the floor, and is secured on the walls of the crawl space to keep out moisture. This creates a complete barrier between the earth and the home, preventing any damage and providing cleaner air to breathe. Phuong was sold with this system that would finally give her a healthier home and scheduled an installation day. Production Crew Leader Aubrey McJunkin, Production Crew Member Frank Lopez, and Production Crew Member David Watson came out and successfully installed the CleanSpace system. Phuong no longer has allergy problems and is back to helping those in need with no interruption.

Fast & Affordable Concrete RepairConcrete Leveling

Around your property,  you may have noticed sunken or uneven concrete.  Unfortunately, you not only have an eyesore near your home, but you have a serious tripping hazard.  Don’t worry though, fixing your uneven concrete is simpler and faster than you probably knew!  At Cantey Foundation Specialists, we use PolyLevel┬«, an industry leading concrete lifting and leveling product.  PolyLevel┬« is lightweight and fast acting; it is injected into small holes in the concrete and has a reaction in which it expands into the area.  During this expansion, the uneven concrete is lifted back into place.  Another great feature is that PolyLevel┬« is long lasting and environmentally friendly!

If not treated properly, the small crack in your concrete could be an opportunity for moisture to seep through and cause the soil to wash away. NexusPro can seal up the crack and provide everlasting flexibility!

Woodworking Opens a New Door in Columbia, SC

Suneetha M. is a homeowner in Columbia, SC that like most people has routine termite inspections. During an inspection, the inspector did not find any termites but did tell Suneetha about the wood rot underneath one of his doors. Wanting his home to be in good condition, Suneetha wanted to find someone that could replace this wood. Suneetha went to a home show in Columbia one Saturday and found a booth for Cantey Foundation Specialists. He got some information and signed up for a free inspection. System Design Specialist Eddie Mathis came out and did an inspection on the wood in question. Eddie told Suneetha that Cantey could definitely help and would replace the wood with no problems. Production Team Leader Matt Garcia, Production Team Member Nick Riddick, and Production Team Member David Herbert came out and successfully replaced Suneetha's rotting wood. Suneetha is back to being worry free about the wood underneath his home and recommends Cantey to anyone that is in need of crawl space or foundation repair.

Columbia Home Touble Selling Because of Front Porch

Michael M. bought his home in 1980 and decided that now he would like to sell it, the only problem is that Michael's home has a foundation issue. His front porch has sank beyond a level of acceptance for anyone. He noticed it 15 years ago and decided not to do anything about it until now.  This has put a lot of stress on Michael seeing that the home is in disrepair, and the eye sore on the front porch could potentially scare away home buyers. Michael, full of frustration, sees Cantey's Facebook page and decides to give them a call. He gets in contact with Specialist Alex Lovette, who comes to Michael's home and gives him a free inspection of his front porch. Alex then explains to Michael that Cantey's patented PolyLevel process can fix his problem and help him sell his house. Team Leader Roberto, and Team Member Nick quickly dispatch to Michael's home and begin working.  Afterwards, Michael is very pleased with the results.  The crew was able to raise his porch and level it out, sealing off the gaps and making his home look cleaner and more presentable for potential home buyers. Now Michael can sell his home with peace of mind that Cantey did the job right.

Basement Water Damage including Foundation Wall in Columbia

Patrick B. called Cantey Foundation Specialists because he (and his renters) were concerned about the kitchen floor falling in, water damage, and a disintegrating foundation wall.  Patrick tried to fix the problems himself; however, he realized that he needed a more permanent solution so that he could have peace of mind.  

Cantey installed 4 SmartJacks at the height of almost 7 feet tall, created a drainage system, and rebuilt the foundation wall with brackets to stabilize until Patrick was able to continue with renovations.

Now, Patrick has a more durable solution for his problems!

Moisture Barrier for crawl space under home.
Project Location: Columbia, SC
We just bought and moved into this house less than a week ago. For the past couple of days we have been getting crazy humidity inside the house with the AC constantly running. A friend who works in HVAC out of state recommended looking into a vapor barrier for the crawl space or encapsulation. We are looking to get an estimate on that so we can fix this issue and ward off future issues from having all this moisture hanging around.
