Somerville, MA Local Concrete Leveling Expert

Sunken and cracked concrete around your home is not only an eyesore but is also a safety hazard. As time goes by, if the problem isn’t corrected, it will only get worse. However, you have no reason to fret when you have the professionals at Erickson Foundation Solutions doing the work. Our experts use PolyLevel, a strong, and durable foam material to lift your concrete slabs back into place. We drill small holes into the slab where the foam is injected and expands, raising the concrete into place. Many other contractors will use mudjacking, but our method doesn’t disturb the area, takes less drying time, and is more affordable.

After repairing your concrete, consider a durable concrete sealant that extends the life of your slabs by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. Our SealantPro concrete sealant bonds with concrete on a molecular level to protect slabs against oil, gasoline, water, debris, and more. Whether you have new slabs or existing slabs, SealantPro will work for you! We also offer a translucent tinted concrete sealer, DecoShield, which adds a unique visual appeal to your home's slabs while preventing pitting, flaking, cracks, and other moisture-related issues.

Radon Gas Mitigation Systems

Radon gas is colorless, odorless, and as cancer-causing as to//bacco and asbestos. Radon gas is produced from the decaying of rocks and soil and comes up from the ground into your crawlspace and basements. The way our radon mitigation systems works in a pipe collects the gases that are coming from the soil. The gas is then piped upwards where a depressurization vent forces the radon out from your home. Our radon mitigation system is completely compatible with the current waterproofing system in your home. Get in contact with us now to learn how to protect your loved ones from the harmful effects of radon gas.

Job Stories From Somerville, MA
Water Seeping onto Floor of Finished Basement, Somerville, MA

Around four years ago, a homeowner in Somerville, Massachusetts purchased a house. Recently, they noticed minor water seepage in their finished basement and contacted Erickson Foundation Solutions to explore their options. They scheduled a meeting with Tom Armano, our Design Specialist, who inspected the basement and recommended a perimeter drainage system. However, since the seepage was minor, the homeowner opted not to install a full drainage system. As an alternative, Tom suggested our ThermalDry Basement Flooring, which resembles regular flooring but has built-in drainage, a thermal barrier, and is not damaged by moisture or mold. The homeowner liked this proposal and decided to have us install ThermalDry Flooring in their basement.

 

Our installation team removed the damaged wooden floors and installed ThermalDry over the concrete slab. The flooring comes in planks that snap together and allow water to drain. The homeowner was pleased with the drainage system installed.

Watering Coming into Basement of 1920s Home, Somerville, MA

A family home in Somerville, Massachusetts, has been in the family for over 30 years. The homeowners plan to use the home as a family/ rental property. They have seen water entering the basement for as long as they can remember. The kids are in charge of the decision-making for the property and decided to call EFS for a free inspection of the home. Our Design Specialist Keith Soper met with the homeowner and then inspected the basement to determine a solution for the home. After Keith completed his inspection he recommended installing a full perimeter drainage system into the basement to collect any water and pump it outside the home.

Our installation team led by Anthony LoCascio began by chipping out the perimeter of the basement so we could install our perimeter drainage and sump pump. After the concrete was chipped out with a jackhammer the team removed all of the debris and then installed 140 feet of WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and installed our SuperSump. After the drainage and sump pump were installed the team then plumbed the sump pump to the exterior of the home where we installed our IceGuard and Exterior Drainage Line. The IceGuard will prevent water from backing up into the basement in case the EDL froze. The EDL will extend 10 feet away from the foundation of the home. After the exterior drainage was installed and buried the team returned into the basement to mix concrete and cover the WaterGuard and around the SuperSump to lock it in place. 

When the concrete cured and the job was complete the homeowners looked at what the team installed and they were very impressed. The system collects water from under the slab and from the wall and that water collects in the SuperSump which is pumped out through the IceGuard and EDL away from the foundation of the home.

Water Occasionally Floods Basement, Somerville, MA

A homeowner in Somerville, Massachusetts, had moved into their home about a year ago. The home was built in 1905 and the homeowners wanted to finish their basement but the previous owners had warned them about the basement flooding in the past. The current homeowners didn't want to risk a flood after the basement was finished so they decided to call EFS for a free inspection. Our Design Specialist Kenny recommended installing a full perimeter drainage system, which included: WaterGuard, Trench Drain, TripleSafe, and IceGuard. 

Our production team began by setting up for the sump pump and the perimeter drainage. The team first sets up where the TripleSafe will be installed, and then chips out the entire perimeter of the basement to install the WaterGuard. Once the entire perimeter of the basement and the basin for the sump were chipped out, the team then installed the TripleSafe and WaterGuard/TrenchDrain into the basement. After the perimeter drainage was installed and the sump was installed and plumbed the team covered the WaterGuard and poured concrete around the basin of the sump pump to protect them. While the concrete was curing the team installed the Iceguard to the exterior drainage line to prevent the system from backing up into the basement. 

The homeowners were very pleased with the results of the project. The homeowners are very confident that they won't have to deal with water affecting their finished basement. 

Wooden Supports To Be Replaced With SmartJacks, Somerville, MA

An owner of a condo in Somerville, Massachusetts, owned a 2 unit condo that had wooden support posts installed in the basement. The previous owner had installed the wooden supports and they were not up to code and the floors had started to slope. The owner of the condo decided to call EFS to have a specialist come out. Our design specialist recommended replacing the wooden supports that weren't to code with SmartJacks that were to code. 

Our production first began by setting up temporary posts in the basement. The temporary post will add support to the floors above when the team removed the wooden supports. After the temp posts are installed the team began to remove each wooden post. Next, the team started chipping out concrete to install the footing of the SmartJack. The team chipped out concrete to install 14 SmartJacks into the basement. Each SmartJack used the biggest foot we have because each SmartJacks had to stabilize a 3-story building. The team makes sure to level the footings and then secure the SmartJacks to the beam or supplemental beam above. The team attached 7 SJ to the main beam in the basement to support the main load of the condo. Then the team installed 7 SJ with 30' of supplement beams to add extra support to the areas where the floor had sloped. Once all the new supports are connected to either a beam or supplemental beam the team made sure to double-check if everything is level. After everything was leveled the team casts all of the footings in concrete to lock the supports in place and to eliminate any tripping hazards. Lastly, the team removed the temporary supports from the basement. 

The owner of the condo was pleased that their building is now under code. They no longer have to worry about the stability of the floor. 

Wooden Supports To Be Replaced With SmartJacks, Somerville, MA - Photo 1
Replacing Supports to Level Main Floor, Somerville, MA

A homeowner in Somerville, Massachusetts, had uneven floors in their 1800's home. The homeowners have lived in their home for the past 3 years and had noticed the uneven floors as soon as they moved in. They would like to have the floors leveled and stabilized as much as possible. Our design specialist recommended lifting and stabilizing the floors with 8 SmartJacks.

Our production team began by setting up temporary supports around the basement so they could remove the old lally columns. After the temp posts were set up, the team ripped out the old lally columns and began chipping out concrete in the basement for the 8 SmartJack footings. The team chipped out 2'x2' concrete chunks so they can dig down and pour a solid footing for the new supports. With a mixture of Engineered fill, rebar, and concrete the team can create solid footings within this 2'x2' hole. After the team created the footing for each SmartJack, they waited for each one to cure. Once the footings were cured they can begin to install all of the support posts. The team first laid the bottom of each SmartJacks onto the footing, then each post was secured to the main beam to stabilize and lift the floors. The team ensures that each SmartJack was level before they poured concrete over each SmartJack footing. Once the Smartjacks were fully secured the team used the adjustable top of the SmartJack to lift and level the floor. 

The homeowners were very pleased with everything that was done. They no longer have to worry about their floors being uneven or unstable. 

Floors aren't Level, Somerville, MA

A homeowner in Somerville, Massachusetts, had concerns with their floors on the first level. They wanted to remodel the home in the future but wanted to address the floors before then. All of the supports in the basement are temp lally columns. Our design specialist Michael B. examined the floors and determined that they are sinking 1-3/4"-2" down. Michael recommended replacing the temporary lally columns in the basement with SmartJack XT and performing a lift and level of the floor procedure. 

Our team led by Matt C. installed 8 SmartJacks. The team first chipped out concrete for the base of the support to sit under the basement slab. They then used concrete and engineered fill to make a strong base for the SmartJack to rest on. The support is then attached to the beams above. The team used the adjustable top to lift the floors back to level. 

 

Stabilize Floors for Renovations, Somerville, MA

A homeowner recently moved into their home in Somerville, Massachusetts. The home was built in 1900 and the homeowner would like to start renovating the home immediately. The first project the homeowner would like to address is stabilizing the floors. Our design specialist examined the basement and found that the floors have sagged 2-7/8". Our specialist recommended replacing the supports in the basement with new lally columns and a SmartJack.

Our team began by adding temporary posts into the basement to take the stress off the old posts. Then one by one the crew removed the old supports and chipped out new bases. The team secured the lally columns and the SmartJack to the beam above and lifted the beam to eliminate the sag in the floor. 

Waterproofing and SmartJacks Installation, Somerville, MA

This homeowner in Somerville, Massachusetts was experiencing water entering their basement every time it rains and also experiencing some issues with the supports in their basement. They decided to call EFS for a free inspection. 

Design Specialist Kenny Calabrese arrived at the home and inspected the basement. Kenny found some little holes in the foundation that could allow water to enter through the wall and he also found that the supports in the basement didn't look to be supporting the home very well. Kenny recommended installing SmartJacks to replace the old supports in the basement and to then spray Poly Wall Restoration to the interior basement wall to prevent water from getting through the wall in the basement. 

Crew Lead Ed Nadreau and his team arrived at the home and installed the SmartJacks and then sprayed the walls with the Poly Wall Restoration to seal the 1920s foundation. 

Water in Basement of 2 Unit Condo, Somerville, MA

Leaning Foundation Walls, Somerville, MA

A Duplex in Somerville, Massachusetts has some concerns about its foundation. Both of the owners came together and called Erickson Foundation Solutions. Design Specialist Kyle Jamerson came to the home and inspected the foundation and confirmed the owner's fears. Roots from a nearby tree are pushing against the foundation causing it to lean inward. Kyle proposed that the Erickson Crew install PowerBraces to add support to the foundation walls.

Crew Lead Scott Crandall and his team came to the duplex and installed 12 PowerBraces to the right and backside of the foundation. The PowerBraces will add support to the foundation wall while also straightening out the wall. 

The owners were relieved when the project was done because they wanted their home to maintain its value in case either of them tries to sell.
