Here is a foundation repair we did in Neenah. On this job we used the Grip-Tite® Anchor System as well as our Beam System to stabilize the wall. The client also had a leaking block wall on one side due to cracks that required excavation with subsequent Exterior Waterproofing.
This client’s home had two bowing basement walls that needed repair after a home inspection. We came in and added seven Adjustable Beams and five Wall Anchors to stabilize the cinder block walls. Project was done in Neenah, Wisconsin.
At this project we excavated the back wall, straightened the wall 5″, and installed Adjustable Support Beams to guarantee the problem doesn’t happen again. The wall is sealed with our Exterior Water Control System and back filled properly. We also installed an Egress Window System so the customer can add a new bedroom.
Our first project we completed this week was Push Piers near Pickett WI. We raised and stabilized a garage foundation that had settled about 4″.
In this home they were experiencing high humidity and strong musty smells or odors coming from the crawlspace area. First step is remove all debris and organic matter, next we level the floor as best as possible. Then we lay down a plastic dimple board system and over the plastic barrier we install the Silverback Encapsulation system. Silverback is a 20 Mil Thick liner infused with anti microbial’s which resist any types of growth on the liner system as well as being reinforced with high strength polymers for strong tear resistant material, it covers the entire surface area as well as the foundation walls. It is then sealed to the foundation walls to ensure no water seepage on top of the liner system. Insulation options are available also and we normally recommend Santa Fe Dehumidifiers to control the environment after it is encapsulated.
