Jean L. in a homeowner in Salem, SC who has been having issues with her foundation for sometime now. She wants to sell her home with the peace of mind that the future homeowner will have a stable foundation. After researching online, she decided to call Cantey Foundation Specialists. Specialist Nathan Bailey came out to Jean's home for a free inspection and explained to Jean that our patented PolyLevel process was the solution that she was looking for. PolyLevel works by mixing resin and iso to create a foam like liquid that compacts and pushes the ground to lift up concrete. Team Leader Roberto and Team Member Nick were quickly dispatched to Jean's home and was efficiently able to raise her slab foundation back into place. After the job, Jean was so happy that her home was fixed and that she could sell it with a clear conscience.

Gary and Deborah G. have been homeowners in Salem, SC for a while now. They love their home and plan on staying in Salem for quite some time. One of their favorite features of the home is the back porch because of its warm fire place and open space. It is the perfect place to host guests on a summer day or even on a chilling evening in the fall. They began to notice a crack forming causing part of the porch to begin leaning away from the home. They were beginning to plan their annual Halloween party and needed to fix this problem for the safety of their guests. Gary did an internet search to see what local company he could find that could do the job right. He came across Cantey Foundation Specialists and saw that they offered a free no-obligation inspection. Gary and Deborah felt like it was worth a shot to make an appointment to see if Cantey was right for them. System Design Specialist Ryan Holloway came out and did an inspection finding that there was indeed a perfect solution Cantey could provide. He explained to Gary and Deborah that soil would be removed from the area where Cantey's Helical Pier system would be installed. Then the Helical Pier is drilled into the ground to the proper depth so that foundation brackets can be positioned below the footing. The weight of the home is then shifted through the Helical Piers to the competent soil underneath. The piers would then lift the home back to its original position. Gary agreed that this was the right solution for his home. Production Team Leader Sixto Lopez, Production Team Member Jose Lopez, and Production Team Member Mariano Valdovines came out and effectively installed the Helical Piers. Gary and Deborah are moving forward with plans to enjoy the company of family and friends for their Halloween party thanks to Cantey's solution.

Deborah G. has owned her home in Salem, SC since 2005. It is a peaceful place with a porch over looking all of the beautiful scenery. About a year ago her mother became ill and moved in with Deborah because she needed extra help. Her mother cannot get out much but one thing that brings her joy is sitting on the back porch and taking in the view. It is her place of peace and where she finds comfort. Often Deborah sits out with her mother and a warm cup of coffee. A few months ago Deborah started to notice that part of the porch was beginning to lean and moving away from the house. She felt like it was not safe for her mother but knowing what it meant to both of them, she had to fix it. While listening to the radio one day on the way to pick up groceries she heard a commercial for Cantey Foundation Specialists. She called in and scheduled an appointment with System Design Specialist Ryan Holloway. Specialist Ryan came out and did his inspection finding that Cantey could indeed fix it. He explained to Deborah that Cantey could install Helical Piers that would be placed in the ground deep enough to find competent soil. This soil would create the perfect anchor for the pier to push on while the footing of the pier would find the bottom of her home's foundation. The Helical Pier would then be able to create lift and safety for Deborah and her mother. Production Team Leader Sixto Lopez, Production Team Member Jose Lopez, and Production Team Member Mariano Valdovines came out and effectively installed the Helical Piers. Deborah and her mother are back out on the porch anticipating the fall weather and the leaves changing now that they feel safe once again.

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair 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, 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 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!

Fast & Affordable Concrete Leveling & Lifting

Sunken or uneven concrete creates tripping hazards all around your property; it also makes for a huge eyesore. Cantey Foundation Specialists uses PolyLevel which is an industry leading concrete lifting and leveling product that ensures that concrete slabs are lifted and return back to their original position. PolyLevel is a lightweight polyurethane foaming agent that is injected into a small hole beneath your concrete. This foam reacts and expands into a strong yet lightweight support system which provides concrete lifting & leveling with ease. For a fast-acting, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly solution to lifting a concrete slab, Cantey Foundation Specialists and PolyLevel are what you need! Don't hesitate to contact us to learn more about concrete lifting & leveling cost in Salem!

We can fix the following concrete lifting & leveling issues:

  • cracked driveways
  • uneven patios
  • sinking sidewalks
  • Basement flooring
  • uneven concrete
