These homeowners in Manchester, NH were looking for solutions for their older foundation. It was partly old fieldstones, partly brick, and most of the floor was dirt in the basement area. Design Specialist, Brian Allen, proposed a polymer wall spray to encapsulate the fieldstone walls, keeping them together and acting as an insulation as well. He also designed an encapsulation system for the dirt floor to help create a cleaner space. Lastly, a few SmartJAcks were also installed to help stabilize the joists, beams and floor.
