This home in Richmond, Kentucky had walls that were cracking due to the foundation soil moving. In order to push the house back to where it needed to be, we installed SmartJacks along with a supplemental beam that allowed for the home to rise back to its original level. This home could now fill in those cracks and not have to worry about them forming ever again.
This business front in Richmond, Kentucky had concrete that was breaking apart and shifting due to weather changes over time. We poly lifted the broken slabs back to even levels then sealed the cracks to keep water out.

A Richmond, Kentucky homeowner had just purchased the property and noticed that water was seeping into the basement near the floor. The home was built in the 1940s, has a block foundation, and did not have a sump pump system installed. the homeowner met with Damon, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a TrenchDrain, and a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is installed to resolve this problem.
The WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed into the floor around the foundation walls. This piping system will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and drain it into the sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement. The TrenchDrain is a piping system with a grated top. The grated drain sits flush with the floor and allows water to drain in from the top. These are commonly seen along doorways and basement hatches.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a high-end Zoeller pump. It comes with the WaterWatch Alarm, SuperLiner and Airtight Lid. The WaterWatch Alarm will sound if there is a pump or power failure. This will alert the homeowner to a problem with the system that needs to be resolved. The SuperLiner is a rugged liner that will not cave in or crack. The Airtight Lid is strong enough that you can even stand on it. The Airtight Lid keeps water from evaporating back into the basement, keeps objects from falling into the liner and quiets the pump.
These systems working together will give the homeowner a dry basement that can be used for storage without worries of water intrusion.
