This Evansville, IN family got very anxious every time it would rain because the horrible cracks in their basement walls made for an easy path for water to come in. Foundation wall cracks are nothing to take lightly. Their foundation walls were showing "staircase" cracks, indicating bowing or buckling walls. We determined that our patented PowerBrace system was perfect to fix this. As for the leaking water coming into their home, our WaterGuard would guarantee the water to be kept out, providing a healthy space for their family.
Our Healthy Spaces team installed PowerBraces to support the basement wall and allow for potential straightening over time. The PowerBraces patented system allows for the tightening of the wall to improve the condition of the wall over time. The beams are zinc coated making them resistant to corrosion, reduces abrasion and wear, and creates a non-toxic surface. The beams also have a clean-cut appearance. The PowerBrace system utilizes a joist reinforcement method that distributes the load of the home, evenly as to not damage your floor system. Secondly, the WaterGuard and new sump pump were installed. WaterGuard effectively captures wall and floor seepage before it damages your basement floor. The WaterGuard drainage system sits on the top of the footing inside the basement so the pipes do not get clogged by mud or debris. The sump pump then effectively removes the water from the home. Lastly, the homeowners decided to use Cleanspace as an economical way to cover the basement walls. This 20-mil thick reinforced plastic liner will stop water vapor from permeating the walls, as well as drain wall leaks. The homeowners now have the peace of mind that they've always dreamed of. They are so happy with the finished product.
