The foundation on this detached condo was full of cracks, and the back section was leaning inwards more and more over time. All the cracks were sealed, PowerBraces were installed to permanently stabilize the wall, and the wall was then also painted.
This home in Lowell, MA was continuously getting a wet basement. Water was leaking in through the basement walls. Although there was a sump pump in place, the system wasn't properly catching all the water, nor was it homeowner friendly. An exposed pit with a pump is not an efficient system. Erickson Foundation Supportworks upgraded sump pump system, combined with a battery backup, is the complete, reliable system this homeowner deserved.
This before shows the columns that use to support the main beam of the home and the after shows the newly installed SmartJack system. The SmartJack system has a 2' by 2' hole filled under it with engineered fill to keep the ground from shifting around the SmartJacks.
This boathouse on Cobbetts Pond in Windham was built in the 1940's. The foundation had several cracks which were progressively getting worse over time, and a permanent solution was needed to fix it. GeoLocks and Helical Piers combined to help stabilize the lateral movement of the wall, as well as the settling.
This homeowner in Bow, New Hampshire was experiencing the back of their garage bowing outward. The homeowner of 15 years has noticed the problem get slightly worse over time and wanted to look into a repair. Design Specialist John Prince came to the home and inspected the issue. He concluded that the home would benefit from installing geolocks to counteract the wall being pushed outward.
Crew Lead Scott Crandall and his team came to the home and dug a trench in the garage so that they could internally mount 3 geolocks under the garage floor. They drilled a long threaded rod from the back of the garage to the trench in the garage. Once they drill the rod to the trench they secure large plates to both ends and tighten them to create enough tension to secure the foundation wall. After, they filled the trench and put covers on the geolocks that are on the back of the garage.
