A homeowner in Ipswich, Massachusetts, has lived in the home for almost 10 years. Recently they found that water was entering the basement from the front foundation wall. They called EFS for a free inspection of their basement. Our Design Specialist met with the homeowner and recommended installing a full perimeter drainage system. This system will include WaterGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump, CleanSpace Wall System, IceGuard, and an Exterior Drainage Line.
This early 1900's home in Amesbury, MA had three egress windows along one side of the house. During heavy rains, the shallow, old window wells would collect the water, eventually leading to leaking through the windows down into the basement. The owners reached out to our Erickson team to replace the window wells with an upgraded system, as well as install covers to help prevent rain from directly falling into the well space.
Our production specialists installed all three window well replacements and covers in a single day, and patched the owners asphalt driveway surrounding the wells. They took care to cleanly cutaway the existing asphalt material so that later their patching around the well would be clean and easy. Not only will the upgraded egress window system help keep water from leaking into the basement, but they look great from the outside of the home as well.
This sidewalk leading up to the entrance of the Blaisdell Library in Nottingham, NH had some uneven concrete and trip hazards. For families and children, these trip hazards were unsafe. When it came to shoveling snow in the winter, the uneven concrete was a nuisance.
Our concrete repair team was successfully able to lift and level the uneven sections of the sidewalk with PolyLevel to help the library create a safe environment for their community. A one day repair that saved the library thousands of dollars compared to replacing the walkway with new concrete.
A homeowner in Lee, New Hampshire, has lived in their home for over 30 years. During the winter they find that the floors of their main floor get very cold. They called EFS so we could find a solution to add insulation to their crawlspace. Our Specialist met with the homeowner and inspected the crawlspace. We recommended installing CleanSpace, Drainage Matting, SilverGlo, SmartJacks, and a SaniDry Sedona into the basement. These products will insulate, stabilize, and control the moisture within the basement and help keep the floors warmer during the colder months.
The owner of this home in Wakefield, RI was concerned with the uneven and sunken concrete in their backyard. The patio and pool area are a popular hang out spot for this family in the summer months, and the uneven concrete was both an eye sore and a trip hazard. Removing the concrete to replace it with something new was not an option, so the homeowner choose Erickson Foundation Solutions and our PolyLevel solution as an alternative.
PolyLevel foam was injected beneath the various sections of the slab and both raised and stabilized the concrete. The repairs took less than a day, and the homeowner has peace of mind that their backyard will be ready, and safe, for the summertime foot traffic.
