This Robards foundation started off with a small crack above the garage door. Over the past few years that small crack turned into an even bigger one. They knew that they had to do something about this before the situation got worse, so they called Healthy Spaces to solve the problem.
Our System Design Specialist, Mike Rogers, quickly came to evaluate the situation. He concluded that the foundation was settling and recommended installing Helical Piers. With a plan set, Kyle Devine and his product team came out to the home to start the project.
Helical Piers were installed around the outside perimeter of the home and garage. Once the soil was removed from the areas where the piers were being installed, heavy-duty foundation brackets were positioned below the footing. The weight of the home was then transferred through the helical piers to deep, competent soils.
Signs of wall failure can show up differently depending on whether the home has a concrete block or poured concrete walls. For this homeowner in Robards, KY, they were showing signs of bowing walls starting to take place.
Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, came out to asses their foundation and together they designed a solution that would permanently stabilize their home's foundation. Our Foundation crew, Tad and Garrett, installed 10 PowerBrace's. The PowerBrace system allows the system to be tightened over time, stopping wall failure without invasive drilling or digging on the property. PowerBrace's state-of-the-art brackets were engineered to provide strong joint reinforcement while also protecting the integrity of the home's floor system.

Homeowners in Henderson, KY recently contacted Healthy Spaces to help get their flooded crawlspace under control. They met with Damon Cheatham and decided that after an extensive mold remediation, they wanted to encapsulate their crawlspace. Damon recommended installing a water removal system, dimple roll, a super sump, and a dehumidifier along with the Cleanspace crawlspace encapsulation system.
The Healthy Spaces installation crew was on site for 5 days and completed all necessary repairs. Mrs. B said "They were extremely diligent and professional. I was happy to know that they were well trained and had a high attention to customer service and cleanliness...The system has performed better than I expected and is quieter than I thought it would be. I'm very happy with the whole system".
Mr. and Mrs. Smith noticed water coming in through their block foundation walls in their basement. There was also water seeping up from the seam where the wall meets the basement floor. Concerned that this problem would forever prevent them from finishing their basement, they contacted Healthy Spaces. The Healthy Spaces waterproofing design expert came out and evaluated the problem.
He and the homeowners decided that it would be best to install a Waterguard perimeter drain system, a TripleSafe Sump Pump system, and BrightWall to help control the leaking walls.
The BrightWall has directed wall moisture effectively into the Waterguard system, where the groundwater is directed out of the basement through the TripleSafe Sump Pump system.
The Smiths are extremely happy with the performance of the system and with the Healthy Spaces team and they plan to start finishing their basement right away!
The Millers in Hawesville, KY are no strangers to basement flooding issues as are most homeowners in Hancock county. When the Healthy Spaces team arrived, they discovered that the block walls were holding water inside them and that was slowly leaking out--regardless of the actual weather conditions outside!
The installation team installed 112 linear feet of Waterguard, 15 feet of discharge line, a SuperSump sump pump system with battery back up, and Brightwall wall panels. The Waterguard system has two features that will make it a perfect fit for these conditions: 1. It can capture basement water intrusion without getting clogged, and 2. It has a special flange to capture wall moisture as well! Coupled with Brightwall, the basement will be effectively and permenantly sealed off from water concerns.
These Corydon, KY homeowners had a small problem that ended up being a huge one. There was a small, slow leak in their washing machine discharge line and it had slowly dripped water along the pipe until the drywall around the pipe was mushy to the touch. One day, while moving around furniture on the other side of the wall, the homeowner felt the carpet nearby and realized it was damp. Once this was uncovered, the whole mess was quickly revealed. There was a ton of damage due to such a small leak! The carpet and padding were moldy, the drywall was destroyed and the water had leaked down until the subfloor was moldy and the crawlspace was damp!
Mike Rodgers came out from Healthy Spaces to help the homeowners decide what to do to repair the damage and clear out the mold. He recommended a full mold remediation and an excellent plumber to help create a better drainage system from the washer. The Healthy Spaces installation team came out and used Biocide and Forticell. The entire area was treated and thoroughly cleaned. Any debris generated was removed to prevent re-contamination. The leak was resolved and the homeowners were very satisfied.
This homeowner in Reed, KY contacted Healthy Spaces stating that their basement was leaking due to the recent wet weather. They desperately needed a system that would not only protect their basement but remove the excess water as well.
Healthy Spaces sent our Design Specialist, Bob Roberts, to meet with the homeowners and to design a solution so they wouldn't have to worry about their basement every time it rained.
One of the most common ways to stop the flooding is to install a perimeter drainage system called Waterguard. Waterguard is installed along the edge of the basement floor. This collects the water and directs it to the sump pump.
Now that we've directed the water to the sump pump, we had to find a way to get rid of it by installing a drainage line. The drainage line carries the water outside through a lawnscape outlet.
Now this homeowner's basement will be dry all spring thanks to the systems Healthy Spaces designed for them!
Jessica, a homeowner in Robards, KY, was upset at the state her crawl space was in. She knew enough was enough and decided to remedy the situation by calling the experts at Healthy Spaces. She explained that her worries were that she had mold, and the health and structure of her floor joists were not in good shape.
Our Design Specialist at Healthy Spaces, Mike, proposed a crawl space encapsulation with CleanSpace to create a barrier between the dirt ground and floor joists. CleanSpace is a thick liner that creates a moisture barrier between the dirt ground and crawlspace. Eliminating moisture helps prevent weakening floor joists, rotting and even mold growth.
Homeowners in Corydon, KY, began noticing a weird smell coming from what seemed to be the crawl space. Whenever it would rain or it was really hot, they would come home to what smelled like a dead mouse in the walls or something. After searching throughout the home trying to locate the source, they discovered that it was from moisture and mold in their crawl space.
Damon Cheatham came out to the home to do an assessment of the moisture and mold in the crawl space. Due to the amount of mold growth, the whole crawl space had to be treated and some of the floor joists needed to be replaced. After all the mold was removed, we then began installing a SmartSump pump system and encapsulated the crawl space.
These homeowners are thrilled that they'll never have to worry about that smell again. And now have peace of mind knowing that their environment underneath their home will stay dry AND healthy!
