View of the existing sump pump before repairs. A new system was required that would be properly sealed.
The cinder block wall on the interior of the attached garage was cracked and pushing in in several places.
Two walls of the garage foundation required GeoLock anchors to stabilize them, as over the years they pushed in and cracked.
A combination of Cleanspace barrier on the walls, down into a Fast Drain/Sump System within the slab, will mean this basement stays dry.
A much better look than the previous exposed sump pump system. Complete with a battery backup, this waterproofing system will provide this homeowner with peace of mind.
In addition to GeoLocks, one corner of the garage foundation required helical piers to stabilize against settling action.
On the exterior of the home, Sentry Seal was installed in several places, preventing water from entering the homes basement.
This home in Lowell, Massachusetts had a few issues with its foundation in multiple locations. The attached garage had a cinder block foundation that was bowing in and unstable. There were also water drainage concerns in other locations which were leading to water leaks within the basement. Our crews worked throughout the cold days of February to install GeoLock anchors, SentrySeal Waterproofing on the exterior, and a Fast Drain plus sump pump system on the interior of the basement.
