Basement Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps collect water that enters the basement and pumps it out through a discharge pipe, managing water levels and protecting your basement from flooding. This provides an essential safeguard against water damage and helps you maintain a dry basement, while also protecting everything within it.
Basement Egress Window Installation
Installing egress windows serves as an emergency exit and provides natural light and ventilation in the basement. Required in finished or habitable basements, egress windows are designed to be large enough for a person to safely exit and play a critical role in ensuring the safety of occupants by providing an alternative escape route in the event of an emergency.
Basement Window Well Installation
No egress window installation is complete without an accompanying window well. A basement window well provides an exit and entry point for your family and emergency personnel. Window wells are available in a variety of styles and colors to match your home.
Concrete Lifting Services
Sunken or otherwise uneven concrete slabs are a tripping hazard and can detract from the beauty of your property. This typically occurs when the soil beneath the concrete can no longer support it. Jaco can help by using techniques such as slab jacking or polyurethane foam lifting to lift and stabilize the concrete.

Brick Waterproofing Service
Brick waterproofing services focus on protecting brick surfaces from water infiltration and damage. Our team begins by assessing the state of the brick to find the best areas to apply the solution. From there, we’ll apply specialized waterproofing coatings or sealants to the brickwork, creating a barrier against moisture. This service helps prevent water-related issues, such as efflorescence, spalling, or crumbling, and helps preserve the structural integrity of the brickwork.
Our concrete repair services involve fixing damaged, sunken, or deteriorated concrete structures. We may recommend a few different solutions, depending on the location and extent of the damage. Concrete repair helps restore the structural integrity and aesthetics of the concrete, preventing further deterioration and ensuring a safe and functional surface. Contact Jaco for concrete repair services, including sunken concrete repair.
Concrete Leveling Services
Jaco uses polyurethane foam concrete lifting and mudjacking solutions to level concrete slabs back to their desired heights and conditions. Both methods involve pumping a specialized material beneath the concrete slab to lift it and bring it back to a level position. Concrete leveling resolves tripping hazards, improves drainage, and restores the functionality and appearance of the concrete slab.
Foundation repair is an essential service that addresses structural issues within a building’s foundation, such as cracks, settling, or deterioration. By identifying the underlying causes of foundation problems and implementing appropriate solutions, Jaco’s professional foundation repair services help restore stability and prevent further damage.

By stabilizing the foundation, our team will eliminate the risk of structural damage and protect the structural integrity of the building.
Whether your home rests on a basement, crawl space, or slab, excess moisture can quickly damage your foundation. Waterproofing solutions can protect your foundation from water intrusion and prevent moisture-related issues. Depending on the state of the property, our team will recommend solutions such as crack repair, waterproof sealants, or sump pumps. Foundation waterproofing protects against problems like moisture buildup, mold growth, and basement flooding, preserving the foundation’s integrity and the overall health of the structure.
New Construction Waterproofing
Jaco specializes in new construction waterproofing solutions designed to fortify buildings against water intrusion. Using cutting-edge techniques and premium materials, we create robust barriers in critical areas like foundations, basements, and exteriors.
Commercial Air Barrier
A commercial air barrier system fills any cracks or gaps to eliminate water vapor or air from leaking into the building. By reducing uncontrolled airflow, a commercial air barrier improves energy efficiency and enhances indoor air quality. This helps maintain consistent temperatures and humidity levels within the building, resulting in increased comfort and consistently dry indoor conditions.
Among the most effective ways to protect your commercial building from leaks and water intrusion is sheet waterproofing. The process is versatile and involves the installation of self-adhered waterproofing membranes or sheets to create a reliable barrier against moisture. Sheet waterproofing is commonly used for roofs, foundations, basements, and other areas prone to water exposure, effectively preventing water intrusion and protecting the structure from water damage.
Cementitious waterproofing is a durable and cost-effective waterproofing solution used for various concrete structures. It involves applying a cement-based coating to concrete surfaces, forming a protective barrier that resists water penetration. Cementitious waterproofing is commonly used for below-grade structures, such as basements or retaining walls, as it provides excellent adhesion to concrete and can withstand hydrostatic pressure, effectively preventing water intrusion and protecting the structure from moisture-related issues.
When exposed to water, bentonite clay expands to create an impermeable barrier against water. This method involves applying bentonite clay panels or sheets to foundation walls or below-grade structures. Bentonite clay waterproofing is known for its self-sealing properties, making it an effective solution for preventing water intrusion and protecting against potential leaks or other moisture-related problems.
Drainage composites are commonly used in areas where water needs to be drained away from an area to prevent pooling. This makes them a common choice for use behind retaining walls, under plaza decks, or alongside foundations. Redirecting water away from the building will prevent water buildup, reduce hydrostatic pressure, and protect the structure’s integrity.
