Foundation Repair Photo Album: Old Fieldstone Foundation Wall Sealing, Hudson, NH
The owner of this property was concerned with the integrity of the fieldstone foundation walls under the home. The home is more than 100 years old, and while there was no active water leaking through, the walls did have some moisture, were crumbling in various locations, and overall needed protection against further deterioration.
Our design specialist recommended a product to cover the walls and seal the holes. PolyWall restoration is a unique solution for old fieldstone foundation walls that allows the walls to remain in place with no demolition, but seals it up and adds protection.
The entire perimeter of the foundation was sprayed with our polymer product, a material that expands upon installation, sealing up holes in the walls and reinforcing the existing mortar and cracks which were already in place. Another added benefit is the addition of a little extra R value to the walls, allowing the basement and the floors of the home to stay a bit warmer throughout the colder months.
Polymer wall spray is ideal for homeowners with fieldstone foundations that do not intend to finish or remodel their basement. For those that do plan to remodel or finish their basement in the future, it is recommended they fully protect their basement with a complete perimeter drainage system and additional insulation along the walls. A finished basement should be warm and stay dry all the time, and it's worth protecting that investment with the proper solution prior to installing flooring, drywall, and other finishing touches.
For this homeowner, polywall spray was ideal and helped solve their problem.
