High humidity, standing water, and sagging floors. These are the symptoms a homeowner in Hudson, Iowa reported to Midwest Basement Systems when he sought to our help. The issues all stemmed from the crawl space.
The crawl space was made of clay so water could not properly drain on its own. This water led to the building humidity and excess moisture, which led to rotting support jacks underneath the floors, which eventually led to the sagging floors in the home.
The production team installed a sump pump to drain the standing water, then installed drain matting and CleanSpace barrier to reduce moisture buildup, and new rim joists to stabilize where the floors had started to sag. This extreme renovation not only helped to solve the homeowner's problems but also prevents the leaks from reoccurring in the future. This is how we help restore our customers' peace of mind!
During an annual service appointment Service Technician Ryan Allen was able to identify foundation problems in Daryl B.’s home. During the inspection Ryan was able to show Daryl increasing wall failure and deflection. This led to a conversation about how to stop the wall failure from getting worse and permanent solutions to save the walls.
Due to moving soils and water issues, there was pressure on the walls which was leading to wall failure. The crew installed PowerBraces, which are galvanized I-beams that are securely fastened to concrete basement floors and attached to the joists, fully stabilizing the foundation walls from shifting ever again. Daryl B. was extremely pleased with this solution to prevent future issues.
By scheduling annual maintenance appointments, we were able to detect a problem and come up with a solution that led to earlier detection and cost savings.
