One of the worst things that can happen to your home is to have it's foundation, the main support structure, compromised. In addition to our basement waterproofing services, we also excel at repairing structural damage that could cause your foundation to potentially be weak, or unable to support your home. By fixing these foundation problems, you can avoid having the foundation walls collapse right under your home. Not only is this an unsafe situation, but it may not be covered by your insurance company.
Fortunately J.D. Johnson Waterproofing can help you fix your foundation problems before they become a bigger threat to your home, and to the safety of your family.
