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.
This Chippewa Falls, WI resident’s concrete walkway and patio had begun to slope in towards the house, there were large gaps between the slabs and the side of the home. The customer was most concerned about water flowing directly towards the home and creating a possible leak in its’ foundation.
Our main goal was to stabilize the concrete slab and divert any water away from the foundation joints. The DBS production crew of Chris and Ken started by prepping the area for our patented PolyLevel® system. They then injected the PolyLevel® product under the problem areas and were able to achieve a successful lift in the concrete slab. The project was wrapped up by ensuring the customer was satisfied with our work and leaving the project areas cleaner than we found it.
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.
