This retaining wall had several large cracks along the length of it, and was beginning to lean. The homeowner wished to permanently stabilize the wall before conditions got worse. Erickson Foundation Supportworks stabilized the wall with 12 GeoLock anchors.
The entrance to this small business in Warner, New Hampshire had 50 year old concrete steps. Over time, the steps settled and cracked, and so the store front was not appealing. The owner planned on doing a complete remodel of the exterior of the building, but first needed to address the stability of the steps.
PolyLEVEL was injected beneath the steps to raise them back to a near level position, and the cracks were sealed to complete the look. Job was completed by foreman Andrew Ahlquist.
In Salem, New Hampshire, a homeowner experienced a leak in their foundation under their stairs and wanted to resurface their walkway. Design Specialist John Merna came to the home and inspected all of the homeowners' concerns. John then created a plan to send over to Crew Lead Jon Provost. Jon and his team came to the home and first sealed the crack, then they resurfaced the walkway and finally installed a new set of stairs.
A retaining wall that was previously removed 25 years ago and had been placed next to the house foundation caused some damage to the house foundation. The retaining wall that was removed was tipping from water damage, no drains had been installed, a not enough rebarb was used when it was installed. The new retaining wall is in very good shape and has had no issues. Over the years the concrete that was used to fix the damage has shrunk leaving a large space between the house foundation and the retaining wall. Erickson Foundation Supportworks sealed the crack with polyurethane foam and a new top leayer of concrete to smooth it out.
This homeowner in Manchester, NH was looking for a solution to their leaning concrete wall problem. Pressure from soils had caused a crack to form in the retaining wall and continued to push against it, forcing it outwards and into the driveway overtime. Erickson Foundation Supportworks installed 3 GeoLock Anchors along the wall to stabilize it and prevent it from leaning or bowing out any further.
This home in Hampton, NH was built on a slab, which over the years was gradually settling. PolyLEVEL was an ideal solution to lift the slab and fill the voids underneath, while doing minimal damage to the inside (holes drill through the slab). The slab had settled up to an inch, putting the floor out of level, and PolyLEVEL easily lifted it back into a level position.
