One of the reasons basements have windows is an emergency exit. But would you want to try to shimmy your way through this home's old window? In addition to a waterproofing system (photos coming tomorrow), we installed a new, less frightening, window.
This basement had quite a few issues. Mold was one issue. The major issue, which caused the first, was water entering the space, mainly through wall cracks. In a small area, a little water feels like a really big issue and a large amount of water means real trouble. This homeowner took the wind right out of those worries with a perimeter drainage system called WaterGuard. We installed this system right on the footing of the home by removing a small amount of concrete around the base of the wall. The drain is put in place and the concrete is replaced aside from the small gap seen along the perimeter. We also added a sump pump to direct the water to for removal from the home. The sump pump has an airtight lid, floor drain, and an alarm to alert the homeowner if the pump fails or is not keeping up. Finally, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier to help keep water vapors down and prevent musty smells in the basement.
Patricia's very old farmhouse needed some work so she called our team. We encapsulated part of the space with CleanSpace. CleanSpace is an uninterrupted vapor barrier that is applied to the walls and floor of your crawl space. It restricts all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. This system creates an energy-efficient crawl space, and it also gives your crawl space a clean finish.

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.
Patricia had an old farmhouse and she wanted part of it sealed off. So she called our team and we installed CleanSpace, a plastic sheet material used as a vapor barrier to restrict all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. Not only does this system create an energy-efficient crawl space, but it also gives your crawl space a clean finish. This material will be applied to your floors and walls to create a sleek look and an uninterrupted barrier.

The area around Sandi's pool is sinking so she called our team for help. We installed PolyLevel, a waterproof and long-lasting system designed to fix concrete slabs that have sunk. It uses a polyurethane foam that expands and has a high density in order to lift the concrete slabs back to their original level. The process is quite simple and is done by drilling small holes into the concrete and then inserting the foam into the holes.
