Piers are pushed into the ground to bedrock.

The photos on the left are typical of bowed basement walls.  Normally the walls bow in as a result of clay soil expanding and pushing the wall into the basement.  Generally these will also have severe water leakage that floods the basement during heavy rain.  If not corrected this can also destroy the home above the foundation.

 

The photo on the left shows the bowed basement wall is no longer supporting the home above the wall.  This causes the inside of the home to sink where it is no longer supported.

 

The right photo shows a concrete slab that has sunk due to inward movement of the basement wall.  This will result in damaging water in the basement and around the foundation every time it rains.

 

 

 

The photos on the left show how brick joints will crack when the foundation is sinking.  This causes cracking and movement inside of the home as well as on the outside. 

 

The foundation needs to be power lifted with push piers in order to pull the home back into place and prevent further settling of the foundation.

 

 

 

The left photo shows epoxy crack injection used on walls with only cracks and no bow. 

The right photo shows a basement bowed wall repair using anchor plates. 

 

 

 

The left photo shows how the wall anchors extend through the bowed basement wall and are anchored several feet into the yard.  This is used to pull the wall back into place.

 

Right photo shows a wall anchored system after the outside waterproofingand drain tile are installed.  The drain tile will catch any future water and direct it to the sump pump.

 

 

 

The left photo is a single basement window well added to an older home.

 

The right photo shows two basement window wells added to a home.  This provides for emergency egress needed if a bedroom is added to the basement.  The basement window well "daylight windows" improves lighting as well.  Drain tile can be added as needed to keep water from accumulating at the bottom of the window wells.

 

 

 

 

The left photo shows Mel-Rol used on a deck that will receive pavers.  The Mel-Rol prevents water from going through the deck yet allows drainage of any water on and between the pavers.

 

Right photo, Mel-Rol may be used on the exterior of a basement wall to prevent any penetration of water from the exterior.

 

 

The left photo shows a new basement with waterproofing applied during construction.  This same material is used on repairs to prevent any future leaks.

Right photo show Enviro-Dri applied to exterior of a new home.  This is a superior material when compared to Tyvek or "Green Board" on a new home.

 

 

The photo on the left represents the type of foundation repair problem that requires the foundation to be lifted back into place.  Piers are pushed into the ground at specific locations until they rest on bedrock.  The home is lifted back to the original level and the piers are locked in place, providing a permanent solid base for the home's foundation.
