There were several tripping hazards, and overall it was becoming more and more unsightly. 

Our concrete repair team successfully leveled various sections of the patio for the homeowner, while also sealing all the joints and exposed cracks for additional layer of protection. With rainwater unable to seep beneath and cause more erosion, this concrete is protected for years to come.

Job Stories From Manchester, NH
Waterproofing Leaks Through Foundation Wall and Floor, Manchester, NH

Alex S. of Manchester, New Hampshire had been experiencing leaks in his basement walls and floor. After five years of cleaning up the water on the foundation floor, he wanted to look for a permanent solution to waterproof his basement. In order to do this, he reached out to our Erickson Foundation Solutions team.

Victor Tapia, one of our Design Specialists, conducted a free inspection of the Alex's home. After roughly 90 minutes, Victor was able to identify key issues and suggest a variety of solutions that align with Alex's needs. Ultimately, Victor proposed a waterproofing system that composed of WaterGuard perimeter drainage and our TripleSafe sump pump. This system guarantees a dry basement by collecting water at the inside perimeter of the basement foundation through our WaterGuard technology, and diverting it to the sump pump, where it is then safely pumped out of the home. Minor components of this waterproofing system include TrenchDrain surface drainage and IceGuard. TrenchDrain is similar to WaterGuard, but is instead installed in the surface of the foundation rather than on the perimeter. This system is often used when access to the border of the foundation is unavailable. The WaterGuard and TrenchDrain systems work together to form one ultimate drainage system. When water is pumped out of the home through an exterior drainage line, the pipes can potentially freeze when enduring cold temperatures. Our IceGuard mechanism was installed to allow water to flow freely despite freezing temperatures, further guaranteeing that the basement won't flood.

After our installation crew installed these systems, they performed a final walkthrough with the homeowner to ensure his satisfaction and answer any questions. Alex was thrilled with the result, and now has peace of mind that his basement is protected.

Basement Waterproofing, Manchester, NH

Justin P. had been experiencing leaks in his basement for a couple of months. The last time it leaked was so bad that him and his wife, Jane, had to miss a trip they planned in order to clean up all the unwanted water. At this point, these homeowners knew they needed waterproofing and turned to Erickson Foundation Solutions for a permanent fix.

To best waterproof their basement, our team proposed installing WaterGuard along the perimeter of the basement floor to capture water before entering the home and filtering it to our TripleSafe Sump Pump. This pump provides three levels of protection to safely expel water from the home.
With our waterproof system now in place, Justin and Jane have peace of mind that they can return from vacation to a dry, clean basement.

SmartJacks Installation, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire had been noticing water entering their basement since they purchased the house four years ago. The basement has flooded four times since then. The homeowner contacted EFS to schedule a free inspection of their basement to find a lasting solution. Our Design Specialist, Victor Tapia, met with the homeowner, examined the basement, and recommended installing a perimeter drainage system that works with monolithic slabs. The proposed system included 141 feet of WaterGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump, IceGuard, 25 feet of exterior drainage, and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier.

 

Our installation team began by chipping out concrete to install the perimeter drainage and sump pump. We integrated the drainage into the sump pump and then plumbed the pump to the exterior of the home where we installed our IceGuard and exterior drainage to carry water away from the foundation of the home. After the exterior drainage was installed, we returned to the basement to cover the perimeter drainage with concrete to lock the system in place. While the concrete was curing, the team installed our SaniDry Sedona next to the TripleSafe.

 

After completing the installation, the team did a final walkthrough with the homeowners to show them everything we installed. We answered all their questions, and they were very pleased with the results of the project. They were thrilled that they no longer had to worry about water flooding their basement.

Basement Flooding, Manchester, NH

The system included 141 feet of WaterGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump, IceGuard, 25 feet of exterior drainage, and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier.

Water Coming into Basement from Window, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire has lived in their home for almost 40 years. Over the past few months, they noticed water entering their basement from the egress windows and floors. They contacted Erickson Foundation Solutions for a free basement inspection. Our Design Specialist Josh Bartholomew met with the homeowners and examined the basement to find a solution. Josh recommended installing a perimeter drainage system with CleanSpace, SaniDry Sedona, Sunhouse Enclosure, and WellDuct Drain into the basement to protect it from water entering the basement.

 

Our installation team, led by Ryan Champagne, began by chipping out the perimeter of the basement so that we could install our drainage and sump pump. We then removed debris and dirt so that our WaterGuard, TrenchDrain, and TripleSafe basin could sit flush with the floor. We installed our three pumps into the basin and plumbed them outside, so we could install our 2 IceGuards and Exterior Drainage Line. Next, the team moved on to installing the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain around the perimeter of the basement. We used the WaterGuard to go along the wall, and the TrenchDrain to move around obstacles like washers, dryers, water heaters, and oil tanks. With the perimeter drainage in place, the team then installed 92 feet of CleanSpace Wall on the foundation wall above the perimeter drainage. The vapor barrier attaches to the top of the wall and down to the flange of the drainage. After the white barrier was installed, we then began to address the egress windows.

 

To start, we drilled a hole from the inside of the basement through the foundation wall right under the egress window so we could begin to attach our WellDuct Window Drain. After drilling the hole, we began to excavate around the egress window so we could install our SunHouse enclosure and the WellDuct Drain. We installed the clear plastic housing around the window and installed our drain. The drain extended through the foundation wall and down into the perimeter drainage system. Next, our team mixed up concrete so we could pour it over our perimeter drainage and around our TripleSafe Basin to lock everything in place. Lastly, while the concrete cured, the team installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier.

 

The team cleaned up and then took the homeowner on a walkthrough of the project. They showed them each of the products we installed and answered any questions they had.

ERV and Perimeter Drainage System Installation, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, had previously hired EFS to install a Radon Mitigation System in their home to lower the radon levels. However, a couple of years later, the homeowner noticed water coming into their home and requested EFS to inspect their home again for a solution. Our Design Specialist, Isaac, met with the homeowners and inspected the basement. During his inspection, Isaac found some areas where water was puddling, and an existing Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) system that appeared outdated. Isaac suggested installing a full perimeter drainage system and a new ERV to address the water issue and improve air quality by replacing old stale air with fresh air.

 

Our Installation Team, led by Anthony LoCascio, started by removing 115 feet of concrete around the basement's perimeter to install WaterGuard and TripleSafe. The team cleared the debris and dirt to install the drainage and sump pump basin. They then installed 115 feet of WaterGuard and integrated it into our TripleSafe. After linking the drainage together and connecting it to the basin, we plumbed the sump pump to the exterior of the home, where we installed 2 IceGuards and Exterior Drainage to carry the water away from the foundation of the home. We then poured concrete over the drainage around the sump pump basin to secure the system in place as the concrete cured. After the drainage was installed and buried, we removed the homeowner's old ERV and replaced it with a new one, along with new plumbing. Before leaving, our crew flood-tested the perimeter drainage system and the new ERV to ensure they were in working order.

 

During the final walkthrough with Anthony, the homeowner was impressed with the installation of the drainage and ERV.

Water Damaging Basement, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, purchased their 1950s home 3 years ago. The most recent rainstorm had caused damage to the finished floors and caused mold in the basement. The water was pooling in the basement and damaged many items in their finished basement. The homeowners would like to find a solution before refinishing the space. The homeowners called EFS for a free basement inspection to find a solution to their water problem. Our Design Specialist Josh Phillips met with the homeowners and took a detailed look at the basement to find which one of our solutions would be best for this situation. Josh found that one corner of the basement was where the water was entering. Josh recommended installing 16 feet of WaterGuard, 10 feet of TrenchDrain, a TripleSafe, two IceGuard, and 15 feet of Exterior Drainage Line.

Our installation team led by Anthony LoCascio began by chipping out concrete for our perimeter drainage and sump pump installation. Once the concrete was chipped out and the debris was removed we installed the WaterGuard, TrenchDrain, and TripleSafe. All three systems will be integrated to allow the water from either of the drainage systems to flow into the basin of the TripleSafe. Once integrated the team installed the pumps inside the basin and plumbed them to the exterior of the home where we installed our IceGuards and EDL. Once the drainage line was constructed and buried in the yard the team then returned to the basement to encase the system in concrete to lock it in place. 

Since the homeowners had the system installed they haven't seen any water at all in their basement!

Water Seeping Through Stone Foundation, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, lives in a home that was built in the 1960s, and a section of their stone foundation leaks during heavy rainstorms. The homeowners want to be able to use their basement for storage but cannot because they are worried about water seeping into the basement. The homeowners called EFS for a free inspection of their basement to find a solution to prevent water from seeping into the basement.

 

Our Design Specialist Bryan Barnard looked at the stone foundation wall and the basement to design a solution to prevent water intrusion. After Bryan's inspection, he recommended installing CleanSpace, WaterGuard, TripleSafe, IceGuard, and EDL in the basement to collect and pump out any water that threatened to come into the basement. 

 

Our installation team led by Gunther Billhardt began by chipping out 9 feet of concrete in the corner of the basement where the water was seeping into the basement. After the concrete was chipped the team installed our TripleSafe and WaterGuard so we could collect any water. We plumbed the sump pump to the exterior of the home and installed 2 IceGuards and a 30-foot exterior drainage line. Next, we installed CleanSpace over the foundation wall and connected it to the perimeter drainage so any moisture from the wall would trickle into the drainage system and then into the sump pump. After the CleanSpace was integrated into the perimeter drainage system we then mixed concrete and covered the drainage and around the sump pump basin to lock the system into place. 

 

The homeowner was very pleased with the results of the project. Since the system was installed into the home they haven't seen any water in their basement. 

Finished Basement Ruined By Water, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, has lived in their home for the past decade. They have a finished basement that they use as a second living room. Years ago the basement had water seep into the finished portion and destroy everything in its path. At that point, the homeowners had a sump pump installed so water would be collected by the sump pump and removed from the basement. This past year they had a big rainstorm that allowed water to enter the basement and soak the carpet. Fearing that their finished room in the basement could be ruined again the homeowners called EFS for a free inspection of the basement to find a solution that would prevent any water from entering the basement. Our Design Specialist Bryan Barnard met with the homeowner and looked at the home. During his detailed inspection, he found that the water originates on one side of the basement. Bryan recommended replacing the existing sump pump with our TripleSafe which is bigger, better, and works if the power is out. Connected to the new sump will be 24 feet of WaterGuard to collect any water along the floors and walls of the finished basement.

 

Our installation team installed the sump pump and the perimeter drainage into the basement and then plumbed the sump pump to the exterior of the home where we installed our exterior drainage system. The system included two IceGuards, which will prevent the system from backing up into the basement, and an EDL which will carry water away from the foundation. The system was then concealed with concrete to eliminate any tripping hazard and prevent damage to the system. 

The homeowners were very pleased with the results of the project. 

Slab Sinking Under Shed, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, had built a shed in their backyard three years ago. The shed was built as a garage/shed to store their BMW sports car and some miscellaneous tools. Since the shed was built a few years ago the homeowners have seen soil around the back corner begin to erode. The shed was beginning to list toward the back left corner and now the structure is no longer level. The homeowners want to ensure that the shed will protect their car so they reached out to EFS to have a free inspection of the slab and the shed. Our Design Specialist Josh Phillips met with the homeowners and looked at the shed. After Josh inspected the entire shed, he found that there had been so much soil erosion that the shed would need additional support. Josh recommended installing 6 Push Piers and PolyLevel to be installed in the back corner of the shed.

 

Our installation team led by Neal Foley began by installing 6 Push Piers brackets to the slab that was already exposed from the soil erosion. We then used our hydraulic press to push the piers down beneath the soil to stabilize the slab of the shed. Once the piers were all pushed to the correct pressure we then capped the piers. Then our PolyLevel Crew arrived onsite to spray PolyLevel beneath the slab to prevent further soil erosion. The team was able to lift the shed back to its original height. 

 

The homeowner was very happy with the results of the project. They don't have to worry about the slab sinking and causing damage to their sports car. 

Basement Flooding Caused Damage, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire had been living in their house for 30 years. They had faced occasional water seepage in their basement over the years. However, this summer, the basement was completely flooded, causing damage to the finished portion of the basement. The homeowner then contacted EFS for a free basement inspection. After examining the basement, our Design Specialist Victor Tapia suggested a complete perimeter drainage system to prevent future water intrusion. The system included WaterGuard, Trench Drain, TripleSafe, IceGuards, Exterior Discharge Line, and membership in the Erickson Care Club.

 

Our expert installation team, led by Anthony LoCascio, chipped out the concrete surrounding the basement's perimeter. They then installed the WaterGuard, Trench Drain, and TripleSafe to gather and pump out any water. The team also installed IceGuards and an exterior drainage system to ensure that water does not accumulate near the home. After installing the drainage system, the team poured concrete over it to secure it in place, allowing the homeowner to re-install their finished walls.

 

The homeowner was quite happy with the results and signed up for the Erickson Care Club. This membership offers annual service to ensure the system continues to function properly.

Improving Appearance of Ugly Basement Walls, Manchester, NH

A couple residing in Manchester, New Hampshire for the past 30 years wanted to move to a luxury retirement community, but before that, they needed to sell their current home. However, to make the home more attractive to potential buyers, they wanted to upgrade a few things. One of their main concerns was the appearance of the basement walls, which looked unappealing.

 

The homeowners contacted EFS for a free inspection of their basement walls. Our Design Specialist, Josh Phillips, met with the homeowners, evaluated the situation, and suggested using CleanSpace Wall to brighten up and cover the blemishes on the foundation walls. Josh recommended a 45 feet of wall system to cover the basement walls.

 

To begin the installation process, we removed any items from the wall and then secured the white vapor barrier to the basement walls using our CleanSpace Tape. This system is designed to brighten up the space and hide any unsightly blemishes from the view of potential buyers.

 

The homeowners were delighted with the project's results.

Water Entering Through Basement Windows, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire has been living in their home since the late 1970s. Last year, they noticed water entering their basement. Since they plan to sell their home in about two years, they wanted to find a solution to prevent any storage items from getting damaged due to water seepage. They reached out to EFS to schedule a free inspection of their foundation. 

 

Our Design Specialist, Jason Vachon, met with the homeowners and inspected the interior and exterior of the basement to locate the source of water entering through the basement window. Jason recommended adding SunHouse Enclosures to each of the six basement windows to prevent water from seeping through. 

 

Our Installation Team, led by Gunther Billhardt, began the installation process by removing any obstructions in front of the windows and digging down a few inches below the window to install the SunHouse Enclosure. They made sure to install crushed stone under the enclosure to allow water to disperse and flow away from the house. For a couple of those enclosures, the team removed concrete or asphalt, and after the SunHouses were installed, they poured new concrete and asphalt where needed.

 

The homeowners were delighted with the results of the project and satisfied with the service provided by EFS.

Waterproofing Home Before Selling, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire has been living in their home for the past 12 years. They were planning on selling the home in the upcoming summer. However, before they sold the home and moved to Georgia, they wanted to address a persistent issue that had gotten worse over the years. Water has been leaking into the basement from the bulkhead and collecting on the floor. The homeowner wanted to prevent this issue before selling the home to a new family. They contacted EFS for a free inspection of their basement.

 

Our Design Specialist, Bryan Barnard, met with the homeowners and recommended installing a sump pump and drainage system below their bulkhead door to collect water that entered the basement. Our Installation Team, led by Anthony LoCascio, began the work by chipping out 12 feet of concrete from below the bulkhead door to the corner of the basement. 

 

Under the bulkhead door, we installed 6 feet of Trench Drain and then 6 feet of WaterGuard to the corner. Tucked into the corner of the basement, we installed a TripleSafe. Our team installed the sump and then plumbed the system to the exterior of the homeowner where we installed our exterior drainage system. We installed two IceGuards and then a 40-foot buried exterior drainage line that will carry water away from the foundation. 

 

After the exterior drainage was installed, we returned to the basement and locked the system into place with concrete. We covered the WaterGuard and put concrete around the TrenchDrain and TripleSafe to secure them. The homeowner was very happy with the results and how quickly the project was completed.

Water Entering Basement For Over a Decade, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire had purchased their home in the 1970s. They have lived in the home for over 50 years. About 35 years into owning their home they noticed that one big rainstorm had allowed water to enter their basement. After that storm, the basement would occasionally see water for the next decade or more until another large storm caused even more water to enter the basement. Frustrated with cleaning up the water the homeowners decided they needed to find a solution to stop water from entering the basement. They called EFS for a free inspection and our Design Specialist Bryan Barnard met with the homeowners and talked about their concerns and goals for this project. After the conversation with the homeowners, Bryan inspected the basement to find a solution to prevent water from entering the basement. He recommended installing a perimeter drainage system with TripleSafe, WaterGuard, IceGuard, and Exterior Drainage Line. 

Our installation team led by Gunther and Paul began by chipping out concrete around the perimeter of the basement so we could install our WaterGuard and TripleSafe sump pump beneath the slab. This will allow us to collect water from beneath the slab before it collects inside the basement. After the perimeter drainage system and sump pump were installed the team then moved outside to install our IceGuard and Exterior Drainage Line. The IceGuard will protect the system if the discharge line clogs or freezes and will allow water to still be removed from the basement. 

The homeowner was very pleased with the results of the project.

Rental Property Has Water in Basement, Manchester, NH

The owner of a rental property in Manchester, New Hampshire has owned their building for the past 7 years without any issues. Until this year when their tenants called with an issue in the basement. The tenants found the water was penetrating into the basement during periods of heavy rain/melting. The owner met with the tenants and saw the potential severity of the issue damaging the personal belongings of the tenants. The owner decided to reach out to EFS for a free inspection of the basement. Our Design Specialist Jason Vachon met with the owner of the building and recommended installing:

  • 48' of WaterGuard
  • 6' of TrenchDrain
  • a TripleSafe
  • 32' of CleanSpace Wall System
  • 2 IceGuards
  • 20' Exterior Drainage Line

Our Installation Team led by Anthony Locascio began by chipping out 54' of concrete around the perimeter of the basement where the water had been entering the basement. The trench they made will be approximately 6 inches wide and will hold our WaterGuard and TrenchDrain. At one end of the trench, the team chipped out a larger hole in the slab so we could fit our TripleSafe basin flush with the basement slab. Once the pumps were installed the team then plumbed the discharge lines to the exterior of the home. Once outside the home, the team installed 2 IceGuards and 20' of a buried Exterior Drainage Line. After the TripleSafe was installed and plumbed the team then returned inside to install the CleanSpace Wall System to guide water from the wall into the perimeter drainage. After everything was installed the team then mixed up concrete and poured it over the perimeter drainage and around the sump pump basin to lock it into place. 

The owner and the tenants were very pleased with the results of the project.

Horizontal Foundation Crack in Basement, Manchester, NH

A buyer of a home in Manchester, New Hampshire, was going through the purchasing process. When an inspection of the home revealed a large horizontal crack in the foundaiton of the home. The seller was working with the buyer to find a solution to the crack. They called EFS for a free inspection and our Design Specialist Anthony Brancato met with the buyer and seller to discuss possible solutions. After Anthony's inspection of the home, he recommended installing CleanSpace and PowerBraces to stabilize the wall and prevent moisture and water from seeping into the basement. The buyer and seller agreed with this solution and proceeded with booking the project with EFS.

Our Installation Team led by Eric Witham, began by installing 26 feet of CleanSpace across the wall to cover the crack. CleanSpace is a moisture barrier that will prevent moisture from seeping into the basement through that crack. After the moisture barrier was set up the team then began marking out where each of the 4 PowerBraces will be installed. We installed the wall supports every 4-5 feet to stabilize the wall. After all of the supports were installed we used the adjustable top bracket to add support to the wall. 

The buyer and seller of the home were very impressed with the installation of our CleanSpace and PowerBraces into the basement.

 

WaterProofing and SunHouse Enclosure Installed, Manchester, NH

A Manchester homeowner who had lived in her house for 30 years recently experienced water entering her basement for the first time. She contacted EFS for a free inspection and met with Design Specialist Josh Phillips who assessed the situation. Based on his inspection, Josh recommended the installation of a SuperSump, IceGuard, Trench Drain WaterGuard, Exterior Drainage Line, and SunHouse Enclosures.

Vehicle Hit Building, Manchester, NH

The owner of a building in Manchester, New Hampshire, has owned their home for the past 3 years. The building is located close to the street and about a month ago the building was struck by a vehicle off the road. The impact caused damage to the fieldstone foundation of the building and the homeowner needed that damage repaired. The owner decided to call EFS for a free inspection of their foundation. Our Design Specialist Victor inspected the building inside and out and recommended installing an Auxiliary wall and Rim Joist Insulation to the fieldstone foundation of the home to repair the damage by the vehicle hitting the building. 

Our installation team began by installing our RimJoist Insulation and PowerBraces against the wall. First, we installed the insulation to the top of the wall where the aux wall won't cover to ensure that air and pest can't enter the basement. Next, the team began installing the PowerBraces. We used leverage from an L bracket installed on the floor and a system installed in the floor system of the home to brace the wall. After, the team created a footing for our Auxiliary wall to rest on. The team had to make this footing because the floor in the basement was dirt and this footing will create a solid base for the Auxiliary wall. The team waited for the footing to cure before they installed rebar and the forms to install the rest of the Auxiliary Wall. After that was complete, the team then poured concrete into the forms on a Friday and then came back Monday and removed the forms, and trimmed off any imperfections on the concrete. 

The owner of the building was impressed with the solution that EFS installed in their building. They are no longer worried about the strength of the foundation with the Auxiliary Wall installed. 

1940s Basement Was Leaking, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, purchased their home in the spring of 2021. Since the purchase of the home, they have noticed water entering the basement from two areas when it rains a lot. The homeowner doesn't know the full extent of when the leaking started but it has been occurring since they purchased the home in 2021. They decided to reach out to EFS for a free inspection of their basement to see what was causing the water to enter the basement. Our Design Specialist Victor recommended installing WaterGuard, a TripleSafe, and an IceGuard with a 15' exterior drainage line. 

Our installation team began by chipping out concrete for us to install the TripleSafe in the lowest corner of the basement. The team plumbed the TripleSafe up and to the outside of the basement. The team sent the plumbing through the side of the home. Once outside, the team then installed the 2 IceGuards to the plumbing and then installed the 15' drainage line so the water can't re-enter the home. After the sump was fully installed, the team then began chipping out half of the perimeter of the basement. Both leaks were toward the front of the home, so we installed 57' of WaterGuard to the front half of the basement. The team installed the WaterGuard and tested the system before pouring concrete over the WaterGuard and around the TripleSafe. 

The homeowners were very pleased with the results of the project. They haven't seen any water in their basement since EFS installed their Perimeter Drainage System.

The homeowners decided to call EFS for a free retaining wall inspection. Our Design Specialist Jason recommended installing Geolock Anchors to stabilize the retaining wall.

Our production team will install 3 Geolock Wall Anchors to the retaining wall. We used a coring drill to make a hole in the retaining wall to drive our galvanized rod through the concrete. Our team used an impact driver to push the galvanized rod approximately 10' into the dirt that the retaining wall was holding up.  Our team then used our Geolocks on both sides of the rod to use the soil between the plates to support the retaining wall. 

The homeowners were delighted with the installation of the Helical Anchors and now don't have to worry about the retaining wall injuring someone.

Victor recommended installing Helical Piers.

Our production team first began by excavating along the front of the home foundation to expose it. The team exposed the foundation in order to install Helical Piers to support the foundation and prevent further damage. Our team used a hydraulic drive head to screw our Helical Piers into the soil below the home. After pressurizing the piers the team attached a Pier Bracket to the foundation of the home that will hold the pier at pressure and to the home.

Water Leaking in Basement, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, had a sump pump system installed into their home by North East Basement Systems before they shut their doors. The homeowners were experiencing water entering their basements. So the homeowner tried to reach out to NEBS and they got redirected to EFS and booked an appointment with us. Our Design Specialist Victor looked at the system and where the water was entering the basement. Victor recommended installing 20' of WaterGuard attached to the existing sump pump and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. 

Our production team began by chipping out concrete against the wall where the wall was entering the basement. The team chipped out 20' along the wall and removed enough dirt to insert our WaterGuard into place. Once inserted into the small trench the team lightly covered the WaterGuard with crushed stone. The team made sure to link the WaterGuard to the sump pump so any water collected by the perimeter drain will be guided to the sump. After the drain was linked with the sump the team then mixed some concrete and covered the top of the WaterGuard. Now any water that enters the basement will enter the WaterGuard and be guided to the sump pump where it will be discharged. 

The homeowner was happy that they reached out to EFS for their waterproofing needs. 

Front Porch Footing Were Sinking , Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, had recently purchased a home, and during the repurchase inspection, the inspector noticed some settlement on their front porch. A couple of the supports under the porch were held up by a couple of stacked cinder blocks.  After 4 weeks of living in their new home, the homeowner decided they had to find a solution to repair the settlement of their front porch. The homeowner called EFS for a free inspection and our Design Specialist recommended replacing the supports under the porch with Helical Piers. 

Our production team began by adding temporary support next to the sinking posts. Once the porch was supported the team then removed all of the old supports. Next, the team used a hydraulic drive head to twist our Helical Piers into the soil under the porch. The team made sure the piers were installed straight up and down and at sufficient pressure to sustain the weight of the porch. Once all 4 of the Helical Piers were pressurized the team then attached the bracket that allows us to then attach a wooden support to the porch. The team cut each wooden support the correct size after each bracket was installed over the helical piers. Once everything was installed the team removed the temporary posts and cleaned up the job site. 

The homeowner was happy to know their porch would be settling anymore.

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, moved into their home in 2021. Since owning the home they have noticed moisture and cold drafts in their home that was built in 1945. They reached out to EFS for a free inspection and our Design Specialist Victor recommended encapsulating their crawlspace with CleanSpace and reducing moisture with a SaniDry Sedona. 

Our team first began connecting sheets of CleanSpace to encapsulate the crawlspace. The team combined the CleanSpace by using our special CleanSpace Tape to install the CleanSpace and keep it air-tight to encapsulate the crawlspace. The team covered the entire floor and the wall up to the floor joists with CleanSpace to encapsulate the crawlspace. Once the crawlspace was completely encapsulated, the team then set up a SaniDry Sedona. The team installed the SaniDry in between the crawlspace and basement to control the moisture in both areas. 

Deflection of Fieldstone Foundation Wall, Manchester, NH

A homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire, had purchased their home in 2021 and was planning on fixing up the 91-year-old home. When the homeowner bought the home about a year ago they noticed that some of the floors were sagging. The homeowner had noticed the symptoms of the sagging starting to show up on the outside of the home. The homeowner decided to call EFS for a free inspection and our design specialist recommended installing two auxiliary walls, SmartJacks, and a concrete slab pour into their basement. 

Our production team began installing SmartJacks in the basement. The team installed 6 SmartJacks with 14' of supplemental beam to help stabilize the floors. The team installed the SmartJacks using our big plate footings. Underneath each big plate, the team had installed a layer of engineered fill to help stabilize the SmartJacks. After 6 of the SmartJacks were installed, the team adjusted the SmartJacks to make the floor above level, then the team called in a concrete truck to fill the basement with a couple of inches of concrete so they have a basement floor instead of a dirt floor. Next, the team began prepping for the installation of the Auxiliary Wall. The team used a combination of PowerBraces, rebar, and metal wall forms to make a form for the Auxiliary Wall. Once the two Auxiliary wall forms were set up the team called the concrete truck back to fill up the forms to create the Auxiliary Wall. The team then had to wait for the concrete to fully cure before they could remove the forms. Once cured, the team removed the wall forms and chipped off any imperfections on the concrete.

Supports Added to Stop Sloping Floors, Manchester, NH

A contractor in Manchester, New Hampshire, purchased a home in late 2020 that had a fire on its top floor. The homeowner wanted to gut the top floor to repair items that were damaged by the fire. Other than the fire damage in the home, there were also some floor support problems. On the first and second floors, the floors were sagging and sloping. The homeowner plans on repairing the home to rent out the top floor as two rental income units. Our design specialist Michael B. recommended replacing the old supports in the basement and adding more supports. 

Our production team replaced and installed 6 lally columns into the basement. To install the lally columns, the team first installed temporary supports around the basement to keep the beams and floors in place when they replace the old lally columns. Once the temporary supports were set up and the old supports are removed, the team began prepping for the new lally columns to be installed. The team chipped out 24" by 24" sections of concrete to install each lally column. Each section that the team chipped out is so the lally column doesn't rest on the slab in the basement. The team chipped through the slab until they hit the dirt. After they reached dirt, the team poured in a concrete base that the lally column can rest on. The team sets the bottom of the lally column on the concrete and connected the top to the beam above. After the lally columns were installed, the team poured concrete over the base to prevent them from moving or shifting. 

The homeowner was happy that EFS stopped the sagging and sloping in their home. Now they can focus on repairing the second floor so the homeowner can transition that space into two rental units.
