This before and after is a little different because the work has already been completed and the crack has already been brought back towards its original position. This before and after is more to show the process after the push piers are installed, rather than the difference that they made in closing the crack (which was a huge difference).
The "before" photo shows off the two installed push piers that had to be installed under this patio. The crack can also be seen at the top of the picture, and as you can see it is essentially completely closed up. Our crew had carefully removed a portion of the concrete that was just big enough for them to dig out the area and install the push piers. The great thing about push piers are that they are almost always completely in the ground once installed.
The "after" photo shows the same area but after the area had been filled back in. The crew filled the holes back up with the dirt they had removed and then began mixing concrete to cover the area. The concrete was poured and smoothed out, making it as good as new! Of course the old and new concrete will look a little different, but the most important part is that this homeowner doesn't have to worry about any further damage to their wall.
Foundation issues are a problem that should never be put on hold. As much as we want it to be able to stop, the problem will grow and become worse as time passes. This Lake Lure, NC homeowner had thought to hold off on getting his foundation issues fixed. However, after watching the floors continue to sag, he decided that he could put it off no longer..
When our team came to rectify the problem they brought along SmartJacks. The SmartJacks were placed under the floor joist of the home and then used to push the floors back into place. To install it, we excavate a two-foot cube at each SmartJack location. The hole is then filled with concrete or engineered to create a stable, loadbearing footing. The SmartJack sits on top of it with a custom-engineered base.
This basement in Weaverville, NC was having water issues. Water would seep down the walls from ground level and puddle on the floors. These home owners did the right thing by calling All-Dry of the Carolinas. Our All-Dry crew was able to tackle this issue with three of our most used products: WaterGuard, CleanSpace, and the TripleSafe Pump.
In the “before” picture you see the corner of the basement before our All-Dry team started installing the WaterGuard and TripleSafe Pump. In the “after” picture you are able to see where the WaterGuard has been placed around the perimeter of the basement.
This basement in Gaffney, South Carolina was in some need of drainage for their basement. They were having some water intrusion into the basement, which started to worry the homeowner, so they gave us a call! Our service design specialist was easily able to figure out what the best solution would be for the homeowner; WaterGuard and a sump pump, along with some BrightWall.
The "before" picture shows the state of the basement before our crew came in to install the products. While the water intrusion is not very visible, it was definitely affecting the area. Something else that can be seen in this picture is the old sump pump. While it was good that this home had a sump pump, the way it was installed was definitely not the best. While difficult to see, it is essentially a hole in the ground with a pump in it, having the hole open allows water to evaporate and cause problems.
The "after" photo shows the same area, but with our products already installed. All three of the products that were installed are all shown in this picture. The first one may be harder to notice, it is actually on the lower part of the wall, the white area and is BrightWall. This is used to help drain water from the wall to the WaterGuard. Next, we have the WaterGuard, which isn't actually visible. It is under the wet concrete around the perimeter of the crawlspace. It has a slight gap between the wall and floor, so that water can "flow" into it. The final product that is in this photo is the SuperSump sump pump.
Crawlspaces are already a pretty difficult place to work in, but every once and awhile we have a home that has a crawlspace that has an extremely low clearance. This crawlspace truly lived up to its name, because there was barely enough room to crawl. However, the area still needed to be encapsulated, so our crew suited up and took on the challenge.
The crew works pretty hard on a normal job, but they definitely had some difficulties with this installation. This project actually had drain matting to be installed as well, so the crew had to first cover the area with this. After it was in place and secured, they moved on to the CleanSpace liner. Which is what you can see in the after photo. As you can tell, it completely transforms the area both physically and functionally.
