Homeowner Andrew and Nicole C. in Long Beach contacted us for our PolyLevel service. They have been having issues with their pool deck since they've moved into their home in 2018. They now decided it was time to repair their uneven concrete and improve their pool deck. Project design special evaluated the pool deck and found it will need several areas of lift with Poly and will need to remove all the old sealant to be replaced with our NexusPro sealant. Our PolyLevel specialist Scott L took on this project and installed 91 feet of nexus joint sealant after the old sealant was removed, 59 feet of Nexus crack repair, and lifted 8 areas of the pool deck with Poly. After Scott finished the project the couple was overjoyed by the results and are excited to no longer worry about their concrete around their pool.
Homeowner Wence P. started noticing a problem in his new home in Long Beach that he recently moved into. He started to notice a musky smell coming from his crawl space. After a few months of dealing with the odor, he decided to call Saber to evaluate his problem. Our project design specialist Jason S. found EXTREMELY high levels of humidity. His meter read that the humidity ranged from 77.1 to 81.1 percent of humidity. Having this high of humidity levels is definitely the reason why the homeowner is experiencing problems. Having high humidity will cause mold in the crawl space which is the reason why there is a bad odor. Also, the humidity will cause moisture to affect the floor joists of the home. The wood readings were also very high reaching nearly 19 percent! This will cause even more problems that are far more costly. Wence understood the issues his crawl space was having and agreed to move forward. Bryan A. and his crew took on this project and cleared out all the debris of the home and installed the Cleanspace package. This service took two weeks to complete and included: 1446 square feet of clean space, 12 vent sealings, a condensate pump, a customer-fitted Everlast door, every efficient Aprilaire 1820 dehumidifier, and a new electrical outlet. From this install, Wence now has the peace of mind he was looking for and no longer has to deal with a moldy crawlspace that would eventually have cost him even more money down the road.
Homeowner Carol E. had a massive mold problem in her 1960s home in Long Beach. Her home has had mold remediation done twice in the past six years and now she needs to do it again. Mold remediation is the disposal of moldy porous building materials and involves the cleaning and disinfecting carpet and anything else that can be saved from excessive mold growth within the home. Carol didn’t experience the problem herself; she lives out of state and rents her property. She wanted to make sure that her home didn’t impact the health of her tenants and provide them with ideal living. Her real estate agents wanted her to replace the floor joists as well as other parts of her crawl space to address the issue. Our Project Design Specialist Jason was called in to do the evaluation and found that the crawlspace had over 68% humidity within the crawl space. Jason notified Carol that the real estate agent's suggestion was only a Band-Aid fix and eventually the humidity will cause mold again. Carol agreed with Jason and decided to go along with the project. Bryan A. and his crew took on this project and installed the Cleanspace Service. This service included: 930 square feet of Cleanspace, debris removal, a Cleanspace vent sealing, a custom-fitted Everlast door, an energy-efficient Aprilaire 1820 dehumidifier, a Smart Sump, and some electrical work. Now Carol can have the peace of mind of finally solving her mold issue the right way.
Homeowner Robert L moved into their 1950s home in SD roughly 5 years ago. Recently they had an inspection of their property and the inspector discovered that there was a foundation crack and recommended that they had a foundation repair company come and give an estimate. Robert found us and said, “It is important to us that the company we select has a good reputation. – It’s important to my wife that this crack is fixed correctly so that we have peace of mind.” Bryan and his crew installed four new posts with pads and caps, a fifteen-foot supplemental beam, and a foundation wall strap. Robert and his wife were happy with the results and more importantly, they don’t have to worry about having future problems with their home and now can have the peace of mind they always wanted.
Homeowner David A. out in Long beach noticed that his driveway was becoming uneven and the cracks were starting to be a real eyesore. He and his wife first noticed the problem a couple of years ago but the concrete was barely uneven and the cracks were very minor. However, now some slabs are settling and the cracks are a terrible eyesore. At this point, the couple knew they needed help. One of our Project Design Specialist Peter G. identified that David would need PolyLevel inserted into two areas of the driveways as well as nearly 400ft of our NexusPro Joint sealant and crack repair. One of our PolyLevel experts Scott L. arrived with his crew, they began with the installation of Poly. The Poly lifted the concrete that has settled and became level to the rest of the concrete. After the Poly was finished Scott would seal all the joints as well as the cracks of the driveway with NexusPro. NexusPro is a sealant that is weather-resistant and never fully hardens. This allows the concrete to be protected and have the best finish possible. David and his wife were extremely pleased, they didn’t expect to get the results that Saber was able to provide. We were happy to provide the couple with a one-of-a-kind experience and showed them that we gave them the best permanent solution.

Robert and his wife understood the seriousness of the problem and called us right away to do Seismic Retrofitting to properly reduce their risks. They didn’t want to deal with any further issues that can be caused by the crack and really wanted peace of mind when they are thinking of their home. They were aware of our reputation and knew we will give them redefining service and leave them saying WOW.

Long Beach resident Tony M. contacted Saber regarding sagging floors in his home. Saber's Project Design Specialist performed a thorough and Free Homeowner inspection. The Support Posts in the Crawlspace were failing. The age of the Home and years of Earthquakes were the culprits.

A homeowner in Long Beach, was wanting to retrofit their home and protect their investment from the inevitable California earthquakes. The homeowner did some research and found that Saber was the best option for him. The Design Specialist from Saber came to the property to do an evaluation. During the walk through inspection the Specialist also found that the posts used to support the home needed to be replaced to prevent the home from settlement issues. The homeowner was very impressed with the Design Specialist and the proposal presented during the walk through, and was ready to schedule the Saber Crew to come to the propriety and get started on the repairs. The crew arrived and went straight to work, they replaced the wood posts and all of the existing post strapping. They then continued with the sill plate bolting for the single story structure. The homeowner can now rest easy knowing that the home is protected from an earthquake and any future settlement issues.
Homeowners in Long Beach, California, had noticed serious cracks forming in the columns surrounding their porch. The homeowners knew that this was not normal, they did some research on the internet and found Saber. A project specialist from Saber went to the property to do an evaluation. The project specialist found that the soils were un-stabile and proposed that Saber install 3 helical piers to stabilize the porch and pillar. This type of settlement is usually due to the unstable soils beneath the foundation.
Saber sent a crew to complete the work for this homeowner. The crew installed 3 helical piers at three different pier locations to stabilize the porch and pillar. The helical pier is a steel pier that is driven into the ground like a screw. The pier is driven down until it reaches solid stable bedrock below. There were 2 piers installed to stabilize the porch, and one more pier installed to stabilize the pillar. Once the installation is complete the piers will remain a permeant fixture and will stabilize the area.
Homeowners in Long Beach, California, had noticed signs of settlement at their property, cracks along the exterior of their home had started to appear. This type of settlement is usually due to the unstable soils beneath the foundation. The homeowners knew that something needed to be done to prevent any more cracking to occur.
Saber was contracted to fix the issue. Using PolyLEVEL™ the crew from Saber was able to stabilize the soils beneath the foundation. By pumping PolyLEVEL™ beneath the foundation this added stabilization to already unstable soils. Once the soils were stabilized the cracks were then repaired using gravity fed epoxy. The expoxy closes the cracks and allows for the homeowners to re-stucco the home with out the worry that the cracks will reappear. The homes foundation is now stabilized and the cracks are repaired.
Customer Mari D, of Long Beach, California, had been considering reinforcing her property, and with the string of recent earthquakes in and around the Los Angeles area, she found that now was a better time then any. So, Mari did her research and found that Saber was the best company to come evaluate her property. Upon the inspection, the Sales representative from Saber proposed to install Simpson UFP 10 brackets at every corner of the foundation and every 6' from the center, as well as strapping each 4x4 post to each existing wood grinder beam, using Simpson T-straps and Simpson framing clips. There was also a crack in the slab that was a concern to Mari, therefore; it was suggested that the crack be routed, cleaned and repaired using a two component epoxy injection method.
Mari found that this was the best option for her, so she scheduled to have a crew from Saber repair the crack in her slab and retro fit her property. The crew was able to complete the project in the first day. They began by going into the crawlspace where the work would be preformed, and installed and secured the T-straps, they then installed and secured the sill plates and repaired the crack with epoxy.
Mari was very pleased with the work completed. It is safe to say, she now has piece of mind knowing that in the occurrence of the next earthquake in her area, her home has been safely secured.
