FlexiSpan Puts an End to Leaking Wall in Lowell, MI
The arrival of spring is - for most - a happy occasion. These customers weren’t as fortunate. Whenever the season changed, the melting snow would fill up the soil around their home and leak through their walls. This is a fairly common problem, especially for poured concrete walls. To solve it, we use the FlexiSpan system. The two-layer sealant acts in, you guessed it, two distinct steps. One layer plugs the leak and creates a durable and flexible seal, in case the expanding soil continues to push and move the wall. The second layer is for drainage. A polymer coating placed over the first seal won’t allow water to enter the basement. Also included in the FlexiSpan system is a drainage system that sits at the foot of the wall. If water does happen to pass through the first layer of sealant, it will flow behind the drainage layer and into the system. When spring time rolls around next year, these customers can focus on enjoying the sun instead of worrying about leaks.
CleanSpace Walls Hold Back Moisture in Lowell, MI
As you can see in the before photo, the stone walls in this basement were having a hard time keeping water out. The leaking water would enter through the walls and then flow down to the floor where it would puddle and result in the large, dark spots in the photo. The owners planned on remodeling and finishing the basement, but as of now, all they wanted was a waterproof system that would put an end to the leaks and floor puddles.
In the after photo, you can see our solution – CleanSpace Vapor Barrier Walls. The white plastic liner is impenetrable by moisture and spreads from the top of the wall to the floor. Any water that leaks into the basement will flow behind the barrier and down the wall. But this time, instead of puddling on the floor, that water will go into a newly installed perimeter drainage system that rests in the floor and wall joint. Neither the walls or floors will show water damage again.
Bowing Walls Straightened with Geo-Lock Wall Anchors in Lowell, MI
Stair-step cracks in walls are a major indicator that there are foundation problems, which is what we found in this block wall basement in Lowell, MI. By installing Geo-Lock wall anchors, these steel wall plates will not only stop the foundation from any further bowing, but straighten out the walls back to an upright position over time. One plate is installed in the soil away from the wall while while the other is directly against the bowing wall. A steel rod connects the two plates which is tightened over time to continue straightening. No more foundation issues for this homeowner!
