The basement under this Marshfield, WI home had developed cracks along the walls which were allowing significant amounts of water to pass through into the basement which led to standing water and moisture causing issues for the homeowner. In order to fulfill the wishes of our customer to create a water-free space in his basement our Specialist, Rich met up with the customer to develop a plan customized to this specific basement. By working with the customer Rich helped develop a waterproofing plan that incorporated our CleanSpace wall liner, SuperSump sump pump, and an interior drain tile to effectively eliminate the water issues this homeowner was facing in this area of their basement. Captured in these photos is the large oil tank that sat in the basement. While obstacles like this can limit access to the basement walls, we certainly don't let that get in our way of effectively waterproofing a basement. Our production crews know just how to work through or around all types of obstacles like this including finished bathrooms and large appliances.
This customer was having problems with support for their main level. The jack stands that were being used were not proving effective in supporting the home from the basement. With several new Smart Jack XLs installed in the home this customer is now getting the support their home needs and can much more easily make height adjustments.
The solution in this situation was simple, but much needed. The customer had noticed the crack forming in their wall and understood they would need to do something before the problem had worsened. In this part of the home the customer only needed two PowerBraces to stabilize the wall. This simple solution provides the customer with a permanent solution that didn't cause a mess or additional clutter in the room.
We take careful measurements to determine how much PolyLevel will need to be injected in the slab to achieve a level concrete slab. You can see from the mark on this wooden stake how much the concrete had to be raised to achieve a level position.
The basement of this Winter, MN home had wooden foundation walls that were suffering under the pressure of the backfill on the other side of the walls. This finished basement room was not an overly large room and the owner wanted to maintain as much usable square footage as possible. Fortunately, our wall anchors fit tightly to the wall and can be covered or finished over when tightened to where they need to be. This solution stabilized the foundation without creating a mess or a cumbersome eyesore for the room.
