This apartment complex had a problem with water seepage in two of the lower apartments. The soil outside of the wall had sunk about one foot, which left the covering on the exterior wall exposed. In order to seal off the wall and prevent water from continuing to damage the property, we installed the SentrySeal system. We first excavated a small section of soil outside of the wall to make room for the sealant. Insulation was then placed over the wall and the specialized sealant was installed to seal off any cracks or openings from the outside to prevent water from seeping in. Once we were finished, the soil was backfilled and water would no longer cause any issues for the complex.
This home in McBain, MI was well over 100 years old, and the Michigan basement was in desperate need of some help. Every time it would rain, dirt would wash into the home, and the foundation seemed to be unstable because of this.
We first added SmartJacks in the space to support and stabilize the floor joists. These steel support beams work well in problem soils to keep the floors above stable. Shotcrete was also applied in the basement to repair and reinforce the walls. This concrete is sprayed into the desired spot with a high pressure hose, and provides a durable solution to these suffering basement walls .
