A Georgetown, Kentucky homeowner was noticing cracking in the foundation walls. We installed our PowerBrace System to help solve this problem. PowerBraces are steel I-Beams attached to the floor joists and the floor. PowerBraces are used to stop settling and stabilize walls. They can also be used on a wall that is bowing or tilting. They can be tightened over time potentially being able to straighten the wall to the original position. The PowerBrace system has permanently stabilized these walls and the homeowner will not have to worry about further settling.

A homeowner in Stamping Ground, Kentucky was having problems with water seeping into the basement. The house was built about 60 years ago, has a block and poured foundation and no sump pump had been installed. The homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky to find a solution to this problem. The homeowner met with Billy, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that our patented WaterGuard Basment Waterproofing System, a Trench Drain and a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump Systems is installed to resolve these problems for the homeowner.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing system is our patented, sub-floor piping system that is installed under the floor along the perimeter of the foundation walls. The WaterGuard intercepts the water that seeps into the basement and drains it into the sump pump system. A TrenchDrain also intercepts water from entering the basement. The TrenchDrain has a grated top to allow water to flow in and also be pumped out of the basement. The TrenchDrian is usually installed across doorways and hatches.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is used to pump the water out of the basement. The SuperSump is a 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump. It includes the WaterWatch Alarm, Airtight Lid with Airtight Floor Drain, CleanPump Stand and a SuperLiner. The WaterWatch Alarm will sound if there is a pump or power failure alerting the homeowner to a problem with the system that needs to be resolved. the Airtight Lid keeps objects from falling into the liner, keeps out odors and insects and helps to quiet the pump. The Airtigt Floor Drain will alllow water from a plumbing leak to drain into the SuperLiner but the water cannot come back up into the basement. The CleanPump stands lift the pump off the bottom of the liner and out of the sediment. The SuperLiner is a rugged, heavy-duty liner that houses the pump and will not cave in or crack and houses the pump.
Now that the homeowner has these systems installd, the basement will be dry and able to be used for storage or extra living space.
A home in Georgetown, Kentucky had a bowing wall in the crawl space. The homeowner met with Brian, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that the homeowner have the PowerBrace System installed along the tilting wall.
A PowerBrace is a steel I-beam that is attached securely against the failing wall with brackets that are attached to the floor and floor joists. The PowerBrace System immediately stabilizes the wall and protects against further movement. The PowerBrace has an adjustable bracket that is designed to be tightened over time to potentially reverse the wall failure.
A homeowner in Georgetown, Kentucky, was concerned with stairstep cracking on the brick on the outside of the home. The settling of the foundation causes the stairstep cracking. The freezing and thawing of the soil and changes in temperature can cause the land to move and makes the soil that is holding the house to become unstable. The Helical Pier System uses steel piers that are mechanically screwed into the ground until it reaches the competent earth. Next, a bracket is attached to the foundation footer and also to the steel pier. The bracket transfers the weight of the home from the unstable soil to the competent earth. The Helical Pier permanently stabilizes the foundation. See a Certified Inspector find out how Helical Piers may help resolve your foundation problems.
