This home in Leominster, MA had sagging floors and a dirty, dusty crawlspace. The floors and beams were stabilized with SmartJacks, and the dirt floor in the crawlspace was covered with Cleanspace vapor barrier.
The corner of this homes foundation had a large crack. Erickson Foundation Supportworks sealed it with a polymer injection foam, as well as a polyurethane epoxy on the surface.
This crawlspace had some light plastic laid out over the exposed soil, which had become dirty and useless over the years. A new homeowner moved in and wanted to clean up the space. Additionally, a structural engineer informed the owner the beams and posts supporting the structure were in severe disrepair, and so needed to be stabilized and/or replaced. Erickson Foundation Supportworks installed a number of SmartJacks and enclosed the area with CleanSpace Encapsulation System. There were several large rocks sticking up out of the soil which could not be removed from the crawlspace, and so the CleanSpace product does not appear to be perfectly flat in some places.
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.
