Job Stories From Essex County, MA
Gloucester Canal Retaining Wall Repaired

The Blynam Canal Drawdridge had a retaining wall which was gradually having the soil underneath its footing washed away by the tides rising and falling. Upon excavating down to install a new foundation for a structure above, the DoT found huge voids underneath the wall, leaving the wall susceptible to sinking and allowing water to overflow. They needed a stronger base for their new structure, one that wouldn't be at risk of being washed away by the tide.

 

The DoT hired Erickson Foundation Supportworks to come in and fill the voids under the wall with PolyLEVEL. We first inserted pipes into cracks and crevices within the stones and wall, allowing us to spray in PolyLEVEL deep into the voids on the water side of the canal. On the retaining wall side, we sprayed in PolyLEVEL into the voids under the wall and between all the large stones on this side.

 

Although the water table could still rise up with the tide, it could no longer wash in and out with the waves or ebb of the water. Therefore, the water can no longer wash out the supporting soils, or PolyLEVEL, under the retaining wall. The wall is now fully supported and no longer at risk of sinking or failing.

Garage Sinking, Topsfield MA

Sandra C of Topsfield, MA inherited a home and was immediately faced with a major problem. She noticed her home had a large gap in the floor where her home and sunroom meet above her garage. She became very frightened that her home was going to "fall apart", so she gave Erickson Foundation Supportworks a call to check it out. She was very determined to have it fixed and decided to go ahead and have us check it out as soon as possible.

Shortly after giving us a call, an inspection date was set up. Upon inspection of the home, John Prince an Erickson Foundation Supportworks System Design Specialist immediately noticed that her garage and sunroom area was sinking down a hill. Her home lied on top of a hill where the soil was being washed down the hill, which resulted in her garage and sunroom area sinking with it. It was determined that push piers were needed to stabilize the home and put it back into place. John's designed a repair system that required 8 push piers to be installed in the garage portion of the home. His design also suggested 5 geo-lock systems that would assist with stabilizing the foundation wall. She jumped at the opportunity and wanted to be in the right away.

The well-designed system worked perfectly and we were able to raise the home 5 inches which resulted in the gap of her home becoming virtually unnoticeable. While we were at the job site, the owner wanted us to help support her deck on the back of her home, so we installed EZ Post helical piers.

Sandra C was extremely pleased by the results and told us she's finally able to not worry about her home falling apart.

Leveling an Uneven Slab, Salisbury, MA

Richard F. reached out to Erickson Foundation Supportworks due to his concerns with a settling concrete slab on his property in Salisbury, Massachusetts. The slab in question was supporting 2 propane tanks and another larger fuel tank. Over time, soil beneath the slab was eroding, causing the slab to sink and become uneven. Since the slab was responsible for the stability of the fuel tanks, this was quite troubling for Richard. 

He was looking for a way to lift and level the slab, without having to disturb the tanks or fully replace the concrete slab.

Design Specialist Michael LaMalfa inspected the slab and determined PolyLevel would be the perfect fix for Richard. By injecting PolyLevel in the voids beneath the concrete slab, the surface could be leveled and the slab itself would not have to be fully replaced. 

Lead Poly installer, Chris Hanulec, completed the project in half a day, and was successfully able to level and stabilize the slab for Richard. This provided some much needed peace of mind for the homeowner, and he can rest easy knowing the slab and fuel tanks are stable.

Radon Mitigation System and Crack Seal, Andover, MA

A new homeowner in Andover, Massachusetts has owned their house for 3 months when they noticed a vertical crack that was leaking in the basement. The homeowner inferred that the crack was caused by a downspout right above the crack. The homeowner called Erickson Foundation Supportworks for a Design Specialist to give them a quote. The Design Specialist found that in addition to the crack in the basement that there was also a radon test that showed the pCi/l was at 4.2. The recommended amount is under 4.0 pCi/l.

The Design Specialist, Brain Allen, was able to design a Radon system for this home. After the designing process, all the information is passed to a Crew Lead. The Crew Lead and his team went to the home and installed the Radon Mitigation System and sealed the crack in the foundation. The crack was sealed and the radon system was successfully installed. 

Pictured are the repaired crack in the foundation and the Radon Mitigation System.

EZ Post Helical Pier Patio Room Installation, Haverhill, MA

This homeowner in Haverhill, Massachusets wanted to install a 3-season patio room onto a second floor. They called BetterLiving Sunrooms of NH for them to come out to the home and talk about what they wanted to be built. BetterLiving came out to the home and measured everything they needed. When BetterLiving came back to start the project they decided to use helical piers instead of concrete piers to support the vertical beams. Helical piers are a great alternative to concrete piers. A great benefit of helical piers is that they take half the time to install compared to concrete piers. In this case, under the patio room was a gravel patio and the helical piers were the least invasive but most effective option. If the crew had used the concrete piers they would have had to dig up some of the homeowner's patio. After all the piers are set they can start building the sunroom. The room above was a 10' x 12' 3-season patio room. 

The homeowners were very happy with how their 3-season patio room turned out. They were especially happy that no damage was done to the patio underneath the patio room.

Leaking Basement Wall, Amesbury, MA

Harry T. in Amesbury, Massachusetts has been living in his home for the past 50 years. Since the year he moved in they have had a leak in the basement and a constant presence of water. In 2021, Harry decided it was time to find a permanent solution, as eventually the home will be sold and will need to be in tip top shape.

Design Specialist Royce Potts came to the home and inspected the basement and the outside foundation. Royce found a crack at the point where the wall meets the floor and water is seeping through. Royce proposed that Erickson install 75' of Fast Drain and 2 Super Sumps with battery backup to help to navigate the water out of the basement. 

Crew Lead Branden Edwards and his team came to the home and installed the Fast Drain and 2 Super Sumps into the basement. Harry could tell right away that the combination of Fast Drain and Super Sump was going to work great for the basement. The water is now effectively diverted into the pumps and out of the basement.

Concrete Deck Leveling,

Homeowner Mike G. was concerned with one section of the patio surrounding his pool. There were a number of uneven concrete slabs, which were both unsightly and a trip hazard. He knew kids would be running around the pool, and also didn't want others to be hitting their toes on this bump. Mike was satisfied with his inspection process with design specialist Kenneth Calabrese, and decided to fix the issue with PolyLevel. 

PolyLevel was the ideal solution, as it was quick, clean, and cost effective. The install took less than one day, and no removal or demolition of concrete or soil was required. The uneven sections of concrete were lifted to near level and fully stabilized. Mike was very satisfied with the outcome.

Waterproofing, Merrimac, MA

Homeowner Ryan M. was in need of some waterproofing in the basement of the home he purchased in 2020. The home itself was originally built in the late 1800's, and the foundation was a mix of stone, brick, and mortar. In the yard close to the home were several large trees, and once the tree's were removed, water bagen leaking into the basement walls, in a section about 15 feet wide. It could have been the tree's were keeping the water away from the home by using it up themselves. Now with the tree's gone, the water was flowing directly into the homes foundation. 

Ryan was hoping to convert the basement area into a more usable space, perhaps even finish parts of it in the future, and so he knew he needed to find a solution to the water leak before the conditions got worse.  He reached out to Erickson Foundation Solutions to design an effective system and prevent the water from doing damage in his basement.

Design specialist John Prince proposed several solutions for what he found in Ryan's basement. The wall with the water leak was bowing in due to the pressure of the saturated soils on the exterior, and so would require stabilization. John also determined the best location for a Fast Drain and sump pump system, which would collect any water penetrating the wall and pump it out. Lastly, to help the stone and brick wall keep it's integrity, John proposed spraying it with a polymer foam, which would keep it bound together. This polymer foam was then also covered with wall vapor barrior system to help with controlling the humidity in the basement. 

Crew lead Scott Crandall and his team were able to successfully install all the proposed items. The first step was to secure the PowerBraces to the bowing wall, which completely stabilized it against the soils on the outside. The wall was then sprayed with the polymer foam. Once the Fast Drain and sump pump system was installed along the perimeter at the base of the wall, the Cleanspace vapor barrior was then installed from floor to ceiling along the same section. 

With the foundation wall stabilized and fully waterproofed, Ryan was able to continue to utilize his basement and plan for future remodeling ideas in the space.

Fast Drain and Sump Pump, Saugus, MA

Darlene B. of Saugus, Massachusetts has had this home in the family for over 100 years. She is willing to do whatever it takes to keep that home standing in good condition. She found that whenever it rained she would find the water is seeping through the back wall. She decided to call Erickson Foundation Solutions about finding a solution to her problem. 

Design Specialist Isaac Hernandez came to the home and inspected her basement to find what was allowing the water inside the basement. With Darlene's home being a granite foundation, water can tend to seep through into the basement. Isaac recommended that EFS install a fast drain system into the basement along with a new sump pump with a battery backup. 

Crew Lead Branden Edwards and his team came to the home and installed the fast drain and the sump pump with battery backup.

Design Specialist Michael Bradley came to the home to address the sagging floor issue and the foundation issue. He inspected the basement and proposed that the basement would need new bulkhead stairs, an auxiliary wall, and Smart Jacks to stop the floors from sagging. Robert decided to only go further with repairing the bulkhead stairs and the auxiliary wall. 

Crew Lead Jon Provost and his team came to the home and installed the new bulkhead stairs and an auxiliary wall in the basement. 

Cracked Garage Floor, Byfield, MA

Ellen E. of Byfield, Massachusetts has been living in her home for the past 5 years. Since she bought her home, there have been cracks in her garage. She wanted to make sure that the cracks didn't get any worse. Ellen decided to call Erickson Foundation Solutions to see about finding a solution.

New Construction Radon System, Lynnfield, MA

Homeowner Lewis was moving into a new construction home with his family. During the build, the contractor did install PVC pipe extending from the basement area through the interior of the home, and up through the roof in the attic. However, the radon levels were never tested, and the fan and vent of the radon mitigation system were never completed. 

Once the home was completed and air tight, Lewis tested for radon levels and found they were indeed above the recommended 4.0 pCi/l set by the EPA. He wanted to ensure a safe environement for his wife and kids and so decided to install the radon fan in order to make the mitigation system operational.

Our Erickson production team completed the connection of the PVC pipe in the basement to extend and be sealed beneath the concrete slab. Up in the attic, the fan was also inserted and provided with a power source. Once this was completed the radon mitigation system was complete, and Lewis and his family had peace of mind that the radon on their property was being properly mitigated.

Concrete Step and Pool Deck Repair, Lynnfield, MA

Homeowner Anthony D. had been living in his home for 15+ years. Overtime, he noticed some sections of his concrete pool patio were cracking and shifting. The front concrete steps that led up to the main door were also uneven and sinking in some areas, causing trip hazards. He planned on selling the home in 5 or so years, but in the meantime wished to have a safe home with no concerns of visitors tripping or slipping on uneven concrete surfaces. 

After meeting with Erickson's design specialist, Michael, Anthony was impressed with the solution of PolyLevel foam injection. It was quick, clean, and efficient. 

Crew foreman Chris Hanulec was able to lift and level the concrete steps for Anthony in a single day. The installation process had minimal disruption to the landscaping on the property, and the steps could be walked on that same day. Chris was also able to fill a void that formed beneath a section of the concrete patio around the pool. With the concrete stabilized and the cracks sealed, Anthony had peace of mind that the concrete around his home was in much better condition and safe to walk on for his family and guests.

3-Season Sunroom Needs Supports Replaced, North Andover, MA

Michael T. of North Andover, Massachusetts found that his 3-season sunroom was sinking. He wanted to fix this issue as soon as possible, so he called Erickson Foundation Solutions.

Design Specialist John Merna came to the home and inspected the sunroom and the surrounding deck. After his full inspection, John showed Michael why his sunroom was sinking. There are lally columns that are rusting and deteriorating underground, this is causing the sunroom to sink. John proposed that our crew dig out the old lally columns and replace them with a concrete pier. Then, install SmartJacks on top of the concrete pier to add support. 

Crew Lead Ed Nadreau and his crew came to the home and dug out the old lally columns. Then, they poured the new concrete piers to then let dry before attaching the SmartJacks to them.

Crawlspace Stabilization, Merrimac, MA

Jennifer N. of Merrimac, MA was wanting to expand her home by adding a second floor to the house. The house was right on a lake, and had a crawlspace that ranged in height from 14 inches to 30 inches. As she was wanting to build up on her home, the existing support posts and columns within the crawlspace were going to need to be replaced and/or reinforced in order to hold all that additional weight. 

Michael Bradley, a design specialist with Erickson Foundation Solutions, proposed several upgrades and solutions for Jennifer.  Within the crawlspace and beneath the house structure, the plan involved replacing failings support posts with 9 SmartJacks. The SmartJack posts are reinforced steel columns installed over stable footings of engineered fill or concrete footings. These new supports would stabilize the current floor system and provide enough support for the expected added weight of the addition.

Additionally, along the perimeter on one side of the structure, the support posts were replaced with helical piers. Helical piers are ideal for lake front properties, as very little, or no soil, is displaced, which means there is little disruption to the waterfront property or the environment. These piers would also be integral to supporting the second floor addition. 

Lastly, one section of the crawlspace was full of plumbing and electrical lines, and the dirt floor made the space difficult to access. This section would receive a Cleanspace encapsulation, which would make it much easier for contractors and the homeowner to access for future repairs as needed.

Once the job was completed, Jennifer was able to continue with her plans of adding a second floor to her lake front home, with peace of mind that the structure was stable and secure.
