In order to stabilize these walls, we installed Power Braces. These beams are installed against the wall and uses a joint reinforcement method to distribute the weight evenly. Tightened over time, these beams gradually improve the condition of the wall over time, and their zinc coating makes them resistant to corrosion.
To collect the water from the walls, DryTrak was installed. This system is best for monolithic slabs that include a foundation wall footing, and is designed to work with the sump pump. The drainage channel is sealed with a special adhesive to the floor, and a small space is left along the wall to allow wall leaks to drain directly into the channel. The water is collected and then rerouted to the sump pump, which will pump the water out of the basement and away from the home through a discharge line.
PowerBraces help improve the foundation walls over time to prevent future wall leaks, while DryTrak keeps the leaks under control in the basement of this Culver, MI home.
Foundation wall cracks are nothing to take lightly. That's why this family in Culver, IN called us. Their foundation walls were showing "staircase" cracks, indicating bowing or buckling walls. We determined that our patented PowerBrace system was perfect to fix this. PowerBrace is made of steel I-beams that are connected to the joists above the foundation wall to offer maximum support. After the installment of PowerBrace, this family can now feel safe in their basement and, more importantly, their home.
Sandi needed help leveling the concrete around her pool so she called our team and we installed PolyLevel. PolyLevel is a system designed to fix concrete slabs that have sunk by using a new product to lift the concrete slabs back to their original level. The new product used is a polyurethane foam that expands and has a high density in order to raise the concrete. The process is quite simple and is done by drilling small holes into the concrete and then inserting the foam into the holes. Also, the PolyLevel system is waterproof and long-lasting.

Paul empties about ten gallons of water a day from his basement. He has water in his basement walls and it has been entering his basement. He does have a sump pump that is working well so our team installed WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a basement drainage system created to keep your basement dry. Unlike many other drains, WaterGuard is installed inside your basement in order to avoid it being clogged. This drain will catch any leakage from higher walls or floors before it reaches your basement floor. Other perks are that this system is almost invisible after it is set up and has a quicker and easier installation process than outdoor drains.
Cara and Lee replaced their back porch with an inclosed sunroom a few years ago. Recently, the windows and doors have been sticking, the floors have been sagging, and cracks have appeared in the walls. So Cara and Lee called our team asking for help. The different issues they were experiencing are usually caused from settlement issues and so we installed helical piers. Helical piers stop the settlement and overtime bring the foundation back to its original level. The helical piers were installed deep into the soil underneath the foundation for a quick installation and permanent solution.
Rose has had water coming in for the last fifty years. She is tired of worrying about it so she called our team and asked us to waterproof her basement. We installed WaterGuard, TripleSafe, IceGuard, and SaniDry to prevent any further water intrusion. WaterGuard is a basement drainage system that unlike many other drains, is installed inside your basement in order to avoid it being clogged. This drain will catch any leakage from higher walls or floors before it reaches your basement floor. TripleSafe is a Sump Pump system that’s main goal is to keep your basement dry. It has three pumps within the single system in order to handle the highest pumping demands. IceGuard is a sump pump discharge line system that even when frozen, allows water to leave. Lastly, the SaniDry XP Basement Dehumidifier drains the water automatically and never needs to be emptied. Also, it is ten times more powerful than typical dehumidifiers. Therefore, after the installation of these four systems Rose will never have to worry about dealing with water intrusion again.
