Belknap County, NH Local Concrete Leveling Expert

Sunken and cracked concrete around your home is not only an eyesore but is also a safety hazard. As time goes by, if the problem isn’t corrected, it will only get worse. However, you have no reason to fret when you have the professionals at Erickson Foundation Solutions doing the work. Our experts use PolyLevel, a strong, and durable foam material to lift your concrete slabs back into place. We drill small holes into the slab where the foam is injected and expands, raising the concrete into place.

Our SealantPro concrete sealant bonds with concrete on a molecular level to protect slabs against oil, gasoline, water, debris, and more. Whether you have new slabs or existing slabs, SealantPro will work for you!

Job Stories From Belknap County, NH
Radon Mitigation Installation, Laconia, NH

Mark and Marianne of Laconia, NH purchased their home in 2019. About 6 months ago they were worried about clean air to breathe in their basement office. They thought about getting a test done for radon. They got a self-test machine and tested for radon themselves. After seeing that their self-test machine came back with an unhealthy pCi/l range of 4.1- 6.2, they decided to call the experts. A healthy range of pCi/l is under 4.0 pCi/l.

Mark and Marianne got in contact with Erickson Foundation Supportworks to set up a quote and an install of a Radon Mitigation System. Paul Magowan provided an accurate quote and designed a Radon Mitigation System for their particular home. Scott Crandall led the team that installed the Radon Mitigation System into Mark and Marianne's home. 

Mark and Marianne were pleased with how Erickson Foundation Supportworks completed the task timely and cleanly.

Foundation Crack, Gilmanton, NH

This homeowner of 2 months in Gilmanton, New Hampshire had an issue where the foundation under their two-car garage was beginning to crack and starting to become uneven. The homeowners are hoping to fix and flip the house. In the foundation, multiple cracks were greater than one inch and would likely suffer integrity issues in the future if this went unfixed. They want this fixed so that the garage is functional again to park their car inside and hopefully be able to flip the house. 

They called Erickson Foundation Supportworks because they wanted a company that communicates with them, delivers a quality product, and good pricing. After they called Erickson Foundation Supportworks, a Design Specialist, Paul Magowan came out to Gilmanton and looked at the house and inspected the customer's concerns. Paul inspected the garage and the area around and under the garage to get a broad overview of how the Erickson Foundation Supportworks team would fix the problem. He concluded that they would need to install PowerBrace into the basement under the garage to make the foundation stronger, then they would need to set up a second appointment to pour a new concrete floor in the garage and inject and seal all the cracks. Team Lead Scott Crandall was in charge of install for both appointments. He and his team were able to successfully install the PowerBrace into the basement beneath the garage. PowerBrace is a metal rod that is the height of the foundation wall that is secured at both the bottom and the top of the wall to keep the wall from bowing and also keeps the wall secure. During the second appointment, the team installed the new garage floor and sealed all the cracks. 

The homeowners were pleased with the way everything turned out. They are now able to park their car in the garage and also have the ability to now flip the house if they still want to.

Youth Camp Foundation and Concrete Repair, Meredith, NH

Wanakee is a youth summer camp that has been in operation since the 1960's. Over the years the property and camp program have developed and expanded. In 2017, the camp built a new shower and bath house on the side of a hill on the property. While the building itself was unique and well built, within a few years the foundation it sat on was cracked and severely bowing in due to pressure from the saturated soils on the exterior of the wall. As water flowed down the fill, it smacked directly into the structures foundation wall, threatening to complete push it in and destabilize the entire building. 

Erickson Foundation Solutions identified the problems with the situation, and installed a water drainage system within the soil along the foundation wall. The system diverted all the water around the building, and so the soil would no longer build up pressure and push against the wall with such high force. The other solution was to install 8 GeoLocks along the cracked and bowing wall, to fully stabilize it against further movement. Once these were in place, the production team also installed 8 Push Piers to permanently stabilize and slightly lift the foundation wall that settled.

Lastly, beneath the main beam of the bath house that ran directly down the center within the crawlspace, 3 SmartJack support posts were installed to lift and level the floor system. 

With the structure stabilized, the camp no longer has to worry about the building's foundation failing or putting any of the campers at risk.

Previous Contractors Repair Failed to Eliminate Sagging in Crawlspace, Tilton, NH

A homeowner in Tilton, New Hampshire, had a previous contractor come out to their home and try to add additional support under their floors. Their solution fix the problem they were having. After they realized that their problem wasn't fixed, the homeowners reached out to EFS to see if they could propose a better solution to their problem. Our Design Specialist Chris Greenwood inspected the crawlspace beneath the home and recommended installing SmartJacks in their crawlspace to add support to the beams of the home. The previous contractor had tried to use supports that were supported by concrete sonotubes. The sonotubes upon installation sank and the supports slipped. Chris recommended installing 15 SmartJacks into the crawlspace along 3 of the main support beams that hold up the floor. 

Our production team began by removing the supports that were installed by the other contractors. After the old supports were removed the team then began setting up to install our SmartJacks. First, the team created a flat surface that our SJ footings will rest on. Once the team installed each footing and made sure they were leveled and then installed the supports and the top brackets. Once all connected the team attached the top brackets to the main beam above. The team installed 5 SmartJack under 3 different support beams in the crawlspace.

Cracks in Garage Slab, Center Barnstead

This homeowner in Center Barnstead, NH was concerned about the cracks in their garage concrete floor. The cracks were visible throughout the concrete slab, and even within some of the walls. There were clear signs of settlement in the garage section of this home. 

Beneath the slab, a large void had formed, which meant much of the slab was not supported or stabilized, leaving it at risk of further cracking and settlement. If left unfixed, the problem will only get worse over time. 

The ideal solution for a slab with void concerns like this is PolyLevel. This polymer foam product is injected beneath slabs to stabilize and lift concrete, and is a great alternative to the more costly approach of completely replacing the slab.

Large Crack in Garage Floor, Center Barnstead, NH

A homeowner in Center Barnstead, New Hampshire, had a crack in their garage that they noticed 5 years ago and since then the crack has gotten larger. The homeowner was concerned with the crack getting bigger so they reached out to EFS. Our Design Specialist Jason inspected the garage and found that the right side of the garage was settling and had caused the garage slab to crack. Jason recommended installing 3 Helical Piers to the right side of the garage, then lifting the slab with PolyLevel, and then sealing the crack using NexusPro. 

Our Installation Team began by exposing the footing of the garage. The team then used a hydraulic drive head to send the Helical Pier beneath the garage until it reached sufficient pressure to hold it up. After the piers were pressurized, the team then fit a bracket to the foundation and secured the Helical Pier into the sleeve, and capped it. After all three of the piers were secured the team then use PolyLevel to lift the sunken side of the slab. After the slab was lifted with PolyLevel the team then used NexusPro to seal the crack in the garage. 

The homeowner was very pleased with the results of the project. 

Radon Levels Increasing, Alton, NH

A homeowner in Alton, New Hampshire, had lived in their home for an entire year. Before they moved into their home it was tested for radon. The levels were around tested 5.5 pCi/L in December 2021. Then in February 2023, the homeowner decided to test the house again to see if anything had changed. The test results came back at 7.1 pCi/L. With the radon levels increasing the homeowner decided to call EFS for a radon appointment. Our Design Specialist Jason recommended installing a Radon Mitigation System in the home's basement to collect radon air from beneath the house and push it out of the home and into the open air. 

Our Installation Team began by creating an extraction point in the basement. The team cut a circular hole in the corner of the basement so we could fit PVC pipe into it. The PVC pipe will carry radon-filled air to the radon fan. The team installed the radon fan on the exterior of the home. The fan will draw the radon from beneath the home and into the PVC pipe and then push it out above the roofline. 

The radon system we installed was able to reduce the radon levels in the home to below 4.0 pCi/L. The homeowners were very pleased with the results of the project. 

Foundation Settling, Alton, NH

A homeowner in Alton, New Hampshire, was the first owner of their home that was built in 1987. A few months ago they had started to feel like their 1st and 2nd floors were settling. They decided to call EFS and get the foundation looked at by some experts. Our Design Specialist Jason inspected the home and recommended installing 7 Helical Piers to stabilize the foundation and chimney and NexusPro to seal any cracks. 

Our team began by exposing the footing of the foundation from the basement. Once the foundation was exposed, the team drove in our Helical Piers until they reached a predetermined pressure by project managers. Once our piers were at the correct pressure the team then inserted our bracket over our pier and then secured the pier to the footing of the foundation. Once capped and secured the team then covered the piers with dirt and repoured the concrete they chipped out. While the concrete was curing the team sealed 20' of cracks with NexusPro. 

The homeowner was very pleased with the results of the project.

Pre-purchase Inspection Revealed Foundation Concerns, Center Barnstead, NH

A home in Center Barnstead, New Hampshire, had a pre-purchase inspection that revealed some foundation concerns. A buyer worked out a deal with the seller and agreed to buy the home after the foundation was repaired. To repair the foundation of the home, EFS was called and performed an inspection of our own. Our Design Specialist Victor was the one to inspect the home and recommended installing 11 Geolocks to the front and left of the home to stop the walls from continuing to bow inward. 

Our installation team began by marking where each of the 11 Geolocks will be installed in the basement. Then they created a trench 10 feet away from the foundation wall that will hold one end of our Geolocks that will allow us to straighten the foundation wall. To get our Geolock rod to the trench the team drove the rod from the inside of the basement through a small hole we made in the foundation wall. Once we drove all of the rods into the trench we then installed our Geolock Plates onto both ends of the rod and began tightening the nut on the rod to begin straightening the wall. The team will slowly tighten all of the rods until the wall was straightened. After the wall was straight, the team will then backfill the trench. 

The new and old homeowners were very impressed with the installation of the Geolocks. 

Water Leaking into Basement, Laconia, NH

A Laconia, New Hampshire homeowner has been living in their home for ten years and has been experiencing periodic water entry into their basement. They are seeking a solution to prevent water from entering their basement so that they can make better use of the space. To address this issue, the homeowner contacted EFS for a free inspection of their basement. Our Design Specialist, Jared Pavluvcik, met with the homeowner and conducted a thorough inspection of the basement. Based on his findings, Jared recommended installing 130' of WaterGuard, a SuperSump, IceGuard, and a SaniDry Sedona to prevent water collection in the basement. 

After the homeowner accepted the recommendation, our Installation team, led by Branden Edwards, began by chipping out a 6-inch wide trench around the basement to install the perimeter drainage and sump pump below the slab. The team then laid the sump in the lowest corner of the basement and installed the perimeter drainage into the trench. The sump was plumbed to the exterior of the home, where it would be carried away by our drainage line. The team then mixed concrete and covered the perimeter drainage and sump pump to secure them in place. After the concrete was cured, the team installed the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to manage moisture in the basement. 

The results of the project were satisfactory to the homeowner, who no longer has to worry about water entering their basement. They can now proceed with finishing their basement.

Adding Drainage to Existing Sump Pump, Alton Bay, NH

A homeowner in Alton Bay, New Hampshire, had an existing TripleSafe that was installed in their basement before they purchased the home. Since owning the home they hadn't seen water in the basement until this past year. They decided to call EFS for a free inspection of their basement. Our Design Specialist Isaac Hernandez met with the homeowner and recommended adding a strip of WaterGuard into the basement to collect water from along the wall that was allowing water to seep into the basement. 

Our Installation Team led by Branden Edward began by chipping out a 6-inch wide trench stemming from the existing TripleSafe. The trench will extend a total of 13' and will hold our WaterGuard in place to collect water from the basement and guide it to the TripleSafe. After the WaterGuard was installed into the trench and integrated into the TripleSafe the team mixed concrete and poured it on top of the WaterGuard to lock it into place. 

The homeowner was happy with the installation of the WaterGuard installed into their basement.

Selling Home with Leaky Basement, Center Harbor, NH

A resident of Center Harbor, New Hampshire inherited their father's house, only to discover a crack in the foundation wall that was causing water to leak into the basement. The water was pooling on the floor, and as the homeowner planned to sell the property, they wanted to ensure the crack was sealed for the future buyer. Seeking a solution, the homeowner contacted EFS for a free inspection of their basement. Our Design Specialist, Jason Vachon, assessed the basement and recommended an effective solution to prevent water entry. The solution involved installing 24' of WaterGuard, a SuperSump, FlexiSpan, IceGuard, and an Exterior Drainage Line.

Our skilled Installation Team, led by Branden Edwards, began by chipping out concrete on the foundation wall at the back of the house. A 6-inch wide trench was exposed, stretching 24' feet from the basement corner to the foundation crack. The team then installed the FlexiSpan over the foundation crack, followed by the SuperSump and WaterGuard against the foundation wall. This system would collect and pump out any water that entered the basement. The drainage system was integrated into the sump pump and plumbed into the exterior of the house. An IceGuard and Exterior Drainage Line was installed to carry water away from the foundation. After testing the system, the team poured concrete over the WaterGuard and SuperSump to secure them in place.

The homeowner was delighted with the outcome, as the basement was no longer leaking. With the issue resolved, they were able to proceed with the sale of their home.

Base of Lally Column Was Corroding, Northfield, NH

A homeowner in Northfield, New Hampshire, has lived in their home for the past 15 years. Over the last couple of years, they have noticed the bottom of their lally columns were corroding. Fearful that the columns could fail the homeowners decided to call EFS to have the supports looked at. Our Design Specialist Jason Vachon inspected the lally columns and recommended replacing them with two SmartJacks. 

Our Installation Team led by Nick Carelli began by setting up temporary posts and then removing the corroded lally columns. Once the old lally columns were removed the team then chipped out a small section of concrete so we could place the footings of our SmartJacks. Next, the team measured and cut the SmartJacks to size and installed them on the footing and the floor system. Once secured by using heavy-duty screws, we then adjusted the top bracket to add support to the floor system. After the bracket was tightened, we then mixed up concrete and poured the concrete over the footings to lock them into place. 

The homeowner was pleased with the installation of the two SmartJacks. With the installation of the SmartJacks, the homeowner will no longer have to worry about corrosion or rust on their supports. 

Add Supports and Waterproofing into Basement, Alton, NH

Jason Vachon, our Design Specialist, met with the homeowner and thoroughly inspected the basement to identify any underlying issues. Jason determined that aside from installing new supports, the basement had an unacceptably high moisture level. To address this issue, Jason recommended installing a TripleSafe and a SandiDry Sedona Dehumidifier in the basement.

 

Eric Witham led our Installation Team, who began by setting up temporary posts in the basement to remove the old supports. The team then constructed three footings on the basement floor to accommodate our big plate footings for our SmartJacks. Once the footings were installed, they set the SmartJack supports into the footing and attached our adjustable bracket and Supplement beam to support the floor system. After installing the SmartJacks, the team installed the TripleSafe in the lowest corner of the basement to collect water and pump it out before it entered the basement. Following the sump installation, the SaniDry Sedona was installed next to the sump. The dehumidifier takes moisture out of the air, and then the discharge line feeds right into the sump pump basin, making it unnecessary to empty the dehumidifier.

 

The homeowner was very satisfied with the project's results. They no longer have to worry about the floor system or water entering their basement.

Bowing Foundation Wall, Tilton, NH

A home in Tilton, New Hampshire, was built in the 1960s and the block foundation was starting to show signs of movement. One day the homeowner noticed that the wall on the left side of their garage didn't look normal. On closer inspection, the wall was bowing and the homeowner called EFS for a free inspection. Our Design Specialist Jason Vachon met with the homeowners and looked at the foundation wall to find potential solutions. After Jason's inspection, he recommended installing 4 Geolocks along the foundation wall. 

 

Our installation team led by Eric Witham began by marking where each of the Geolocks will be located on the foundation wall. After the location was determined we went outside and marked 10 feet from the foundation wall to begin digging our trench for our plates. The team used our excavator to make the trench that was the length of the wall. Next, the team returned to the home so we could drive a hole for our rod to be sent from the foundation wall to the trench through the soil. The team sent the 4 rods so they were poking through the foundation wall and in the trench. Next, we installed our Channel Anchor on the foundation and our Geolock Plate inside the trench and then began to tighten the end so we could straighten the wall slowly. After the wall was straightened the team then backfilled dirt over the trench and tamped down the soil. 

 

The homeowners were very happy with the results of the project. Their foundation wall is now straight and they don't have to worry about it bowing anymore. 

Odor Coming From CrawlSpace, Gilford, NH

A homeowner in Gilford, New Hampshire, has lived in their home for 15 years. An addition was installed onto the home a few years ago and the crawlspace underneath it has started to smell. The homeowner has concerns about mold in the crawlspace, so they contacted EFS for a free inspection. Our Design Specialist Jason Vachon met with the homeowners and inspected the crawlspace to find a solution to the smelly crawlspace. The first thing Jason noticed inside the crawlspace was how much humidity was in there. Jason tested the Relative Humidity in the crawlspace and the RH returned 71% which is high. Like the homeowner, Jason was concerned with mold becoming a problem. To combat this we recommended installing CleanSpace Encapsulation and SaniDry Sedona into the crawlspace so we could control the humidity to eliminate the odor. 

Our installation team led by Anthony LoCascio began by removing any debris from the crawlspace. Next, our team began installing the CleanSpace Encapsulation. We installed 715 sqft of CleanSpace and 77 feet of CleanSpace Wall into the crawlspace to protect the space from moisture seeping up through the ground. After encapsulation was complete the team then installed our SaniDry Sedona to ensure the humidity stayed low to prevent dry rot and mold. The team cleaned up all of their tools and trash and left the space cleaner than they found it.

The homeowners were very pleased with the result of the project and no longer had to worry about that musty smell in their home. 

Eliminating Water In Basement, Gilford, NH

Karel has lived in her home in Gilford, New Hampshire for over 40 years. For the last two years, she has noticed that water would constantly occupy her basement. The cleanup process was awful, and the water damage was starting to become bad. She trusted us to provide a permanent solution to her leaky, wet basement.
After our Design Specialist, Jason Vachon, inspected the home, he recommended installing our TripleSafe sump pump system. This catches water at the inside perimeter of the basement, and delivers it to the pump, where it is then discarded safely away from the home. Our technicians installed the system with care and with efficiency.

With this system now in place, Karel can trust that her basement will remain dry. Her belongings aren't at risk of becoming ruined anymore, and her concern of mold is a thing of the past.
