The entrance to this small business in Warner, New Hampshire had 50 year old concrete steps. Over time, the steps settled and cracked, and so the store front was not appealing. The owner planned on doing a complete remodel of the exterior of the building, but first needed to address the stability of the steps.
PolyLEVEL was injected beneath the steps to raise them back to a near level position, and the cracks were sealed to complete the look. Job was completed by foreman Andrew Ahlquist.

Three months ago Mark and Shirley Casey purchased a new home in Pittsfield, NH. The home was built in 2002. Since they moved in they had been thinking of doing a radon test in fear that the air wasn't clean and healthy.
After speaking with a few different companies they gave Erickson Foundation Supportworks a call and had a radon test done in their house. The radon levels in their house tested at 7.0 pCi/l. A comfortable level for radon is under 4.0 pCi/l. Erickson advised that they should install a Radon Mitigation System in their home to bring down the radon levels to as low as possible.
Mark and Shirley decided that they wanted to go forward with having Erickson Foundation Supportworks install a Radon Mitigation System. Paul Magowan designed the system and Scott Crandall led the team that installed the Radon Mitigation System in Mark and Shirley's home. Mark and Shirley were happy with the quality and honesty of the crew.
Kevin O. knew when he bought his home in Bow, NH that there were some concerns with some cracks in the garage foundation walls and floor. Over the years the cracks grew slightly, and Kevin decided it was time to finally work towards finding a solution. He really wanted for his property to hold it's value, and sealing cracks and having a professional take a look at it for him would provide peace of mind.
Design specialist, Kyle Jamerson, inspected the cracks in the walls and floors, and it was determined there was not much movement or settlement action. With that in mind, the ideal, immediate solution was to seal the cracks with a polymer foam injection and NexusPro sealant.
However, in order to keep an eye on the possibility of settlement under the foundation, our production team also installed crack monitors. These monitors will allow Kevin to notice if there is indeed any movement or settlement in his garage foundation.
With the project completed, Kevin has peace of mind that his home is safe and stable.

Homeowner Dale had lived in his home for over 24 years, though the home itself was built in 1976. The original homeowner had installed a drain of some kind in the floor of the garage slab, and so over 50 years water was flowing into this drain and seemingly straight into the soil beneath it. When Dale purchased the home, he noticed the drain and the fact that the slab had shifted a bit. However, it wasn't a must fix for him at the time. In recent years, the slab had begun to crack and shift more and more, and Dale knew it was time to address the issue before things got worse. In some places near cracks, there was settlement of up to 3/4 of an inch. Replacing an entire garage slab could be costly, and so he sought out other options. His ultimate goal afterwards was to also have the surface painted to brighten up the garage space.
Design specialist Paul Magowan met with Dale and inspected the garage slab. Paul concluded PolyLevel would be an appropriate solution for the problem, and proposed the fix and costs involved. Dale was thrilled to learn he would not need to replace the slab entirely, and hired Erickson Foundation Solutions to install the PolyLevel to fill the voids beneath the slab, and lift and stabilize his garage floor.
Crew lead Nick Melo and his team were able to lift and stabilize the concrete garage slab, as well as seal on the cracks with NexusPro, all in a single day. Dale was able to use and even drive his vehicle back into the garage space within 30 minutes of job completion. The PolyLevel solution saved Dale time and money, and now he can repaint the garage floor and have peace of mind that it is stabilized and will likely no longer shift or crack.

A homeowner in Dunbarton, New Hampshire, had concerns about the supports in their crawlspace.

Our design specialist Victor recommended installing PolyLevel and NexusPro to lift, level, and seal the slab in the garage.
Our production team first started by drilling port holes in a grid pattern into the slab. The port holes gave the team a space to inject PolyLevel under the concrete. The team injected the PolyLevel under the slab to precisely lift and level the concrete. After they lifted and leveled the slab the team then started sealing the cracks with NexusPro. They used a motorized caulking gun to squeeze NexusPro into all of the cracks. To make sure the cracks are sealed the team used a set of metal spoons to push the NexusPro deep into the cracks and to leave a smooth finish.
The homeowner was very happy with the results of the project. They can finally remodel their garage like they wanted to.
A homeowner in Epsom, New Hampshire, had purchased their home in 1973. When they first purchased the home they noticed a slight crack in the foundation. The homeowners didn't think anything of it until they noticed the wall periodically leaking onto the basement floor. They attempted to fix the issue by installing a drain to collect all of the water. The drain wasn't a permanent fix but it did help in the short term until they noticed the wall started to lean inward more every year. Our design specialist Tom recommended installing a solution to address both things. Tom first recommended installing Geolocks on the foundation wall to straighten it, the second was to install a perimeter drainage system and CleanSpace to the back wall to collect all of the water coming into the basement.
Our production team began the project by addressing the bowing foundation wall. The team started by digging a trench parallel to the bowing wall. The team used an excavator to dig a trench 10' away from the wall so we can use our Geolocks. After the trench was dug, the team drilled 8 small holes into the foundation walls. These small holes are so our Geolock rods can go through the wall, through the soil, and into the trench. The team then attached Geolock Plates against the foundation wall and the inner wall of the trench. After both ends were secured the team used a power drill to tighten the Geolocks to pull them together. The Geolocks will get tighter and begin to pull the wall until straight. After the team straightened the wall, the team moved on to installing the waterproofing system. The team first chipped out the concrete at the base of the wall. WaterGuard was installed in a trench at the base of the wall to collect any water that trickled down that wall. The WaterGuard led to a sump pump that was installed in the corner of the basement. After the UltraSump and WaterGuard were set up, the team then began installing the CleanSpace over the Geolocks and the rest of the wall. The team began by installing CleanSpace at the top of the wall. They sealed the top and started to move down the wall. To make sure the Geolocks could still be adjusted the team left part of the Geolock exposed. When the team was near the bottom of the wall they tied in the CleanSpace to the WaterGuard so any water coming down the wall would enter into the perimeter drainage system. After the CleanSpace and the perimeter drainage system were tied in together the team poured crushed stone and concrete over the WaterGuard and around the basin of the UltraSump. As the concrete was curing the team plumbed the UltraSump outside and connected an IceGuard to the exterior drainage line. The IceGuard will prevent the drainage line from freezing and causing a backup of water back into the basement.
The homeowner was very happy with the results of the project. They don't have to worry about their foundation wall bowing or water collecting in their basement anymore.
