Ian R. from Dry Guys Basement Systems

Ian hails from Monroeville, NJ. Raised working on a dairy farm, he’s no stranger to hard work! In addition to his prowess with a cement trough, he has a certification in architectural studies. He doesn’t mind the crawl spaces or the foundation repair installs, but really enjoys the basement waterproofing aspect of the job, showing off a bit in his cement laying skills.

When asked what he likes most about his job, Ian commented, “The people I get to work with are the best, but mostly, knowing I had the opportunity to help a homeowner and do a great job for them. It’s what makes each day.”

In his spare time, Ian is a bit of an adrenaline junkie. He loves all sports, but Motorcross is where his heart lies. “It’s the going fast, and the going fast while jumping a bike that gets me!”.   It wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows, he’s been hurt a few times. Being clotheslined by a tree is just one example, but there have also been some highs- like acquiring 2nd place during Thunder in The Sand Motorcross Rally, held in Wildwood, NJ.

When Ian is in your home, you’re in good hands!

    Water In Basement Solved In Pennsville NJ

    This basement in Pennsville New Jersey has issues keeping up with the water coming into the basement. The home already had two sump pumps installed and the owner was looming to get a third. When our System Designer arrived, he discovered that the pumps had been filled with iron ochre (an orange slime that naturally occurs as a waste by-product in iron bacteria) It was clear that more pumping power wasn't needed, but a system that could handle the gelatinous problem would need to be installed. A combination of our WaterGuard Perimeter System and replacing one of the pumps with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System to correct the issue. Our WaterGuard drainage system features inspection ports that make it easy to maintain and prevent clogging while our TribleSafe has two powerful pumps to keep the basement dry all the time.

    CleanSpace Installation in Deepwater NJ

    This Deepwater, NJ crawl space is one of the larger jobs our install team has faced. Protecting against mold and humidity in a crawl space this size would be difficult without the patented products that our company provides.  Once a dirty and humid area, the crawl space is now mold-free and at consistent temperature thanks to over 5000 sq ft. of CleanSpace Vapor Barrier and the SaniDry Dehumidifier and Air Purifier.

    Debris falling into the crawlspace in Penns Grove, NJ, has made it unsafe and unusable as seen in the before picture. Thanks to Dry Guys, they not only clean the space, but also installed a CleanSpace Drainage Matting System.

    The raised dimples on our CleanSpace Drainage Matting gives the water flooding into your crawl space a channel underneath your crawl space liner. This directs the water flooding your crawl space to your perimeter crawl space drain and sump pump system.

    Humidity Controlled in Pedricktown, NJ

    This crawl space in Pedricktown, New Jersey, suffered from water seepage from the outside causing mold to eat away at the wooden floor joists. The Dry Guys team took action using Mold-X2, we eliminated the mold and restored the wood! SilverGlo Wall Insulation and CleanSpace Vapor Barrier were then installed to create an environment inhospitable to mold. To prevent humidity levels from rising, we also included our self draining SaniDry dehumidifier. When the humidity levels rise, crawl spaces that have fiberglass insulation on the ceiling and floor joists absorb the moisture in the air and become a space for mold to thrive. As the fiberglass soaks up more and more moisture, it becomes damp and heavy, losing its insulation value and (as seen in picture 1), the added weight pulls it from the ceiling. Unlike fiberglass, SilveGlo Insulation was designed for crawl spaces and will not soak up moisture. Our CleanSpace was then installed onto the SilverGlo allowing any water seepage that could come from the wall to be directed down into your drainage system, successfully waterproofing this crawl space!

    Wall Restoration in Local Church, Woodstown, NJ

    This local church in Woodstown, New Jersey, experienced damp floors and musty odors when water would seep through cracks leading into the basement during heavy rainfall. Even if the puddled water is vacuumed, the basement is still susceptible to mold and other pathogens. The Dry Guys Team arrived to install our patented WaterGuard Perimeter Drainage System to drain water that could potentially flood the basement. WaterGuard is the most effective form of drainage systems because it's engineered with 3/8" openings and fall flanges which allows water to flow freely into it while blocking debris that would otherwise clog the system. Unlike a commonly used French Drain, our system sits on top of the footing in the clean water zone collecting water without the risk of clogs. Our Team also installed our patented EverLast Finished Wall Restoration System to remedy the wet, damaged walls in the finished basement. Our product includes metal studs and a waterproof, pre-finished wall panel with a mold-free base molding. In order for mold to grow, organic materials such as wood or carpet need to be present. Our system is engineered with cutting-edge technology to prevent this, for your peace of mind. Thanks to the Dry Guys Crew, this church's basement will remain dry and worry-free!

    Structual Repair in Bridgeport, NJ

    Originally, this sagging crawl space in Bridgeport, NJ, was supported by concrete blocks. This kind of installation requires constant maintenance and additional wooden shims, and because the concrete columns continued to sink into the earth below, this solution ultimately failed. Our SmartJack Crawl Space Support System uses adjustable, heavy-duty steel crawl space jack posts that install quickly into a home and provide the best solution for restoring stability to your structure. The adjustable design of our crawl space jack system means that sagging floors can not only be stabilized, but they can also be restored to their original position.

    A small veterinary hospital located in Wallingford, PA, noticed how the insulation of their basement was slowly falling. There were rodents in the basement, and those rodents had caused damage to the insulation. They knew something had to be done, so they called Dry Guys to come out and remove the old damaged insulation. Their solution was a product called SiverGlo™. This insulation will keep the basement dry, and also work as a vapor barrier to keep moisture from making its way into the basement. This will prevent further issues with rodents as well as save them with heating and cooling costs.

    Margret knew there was a problem with her home back in 2015 when she was referred to Dry Guys to check out her leaky basement which was an addition to the crawl space in her old Swarthmore home. Initially, she was looking to get a battery backup for her pump system but soon realized a larger system had to be put in place to stop the water and mold from plaguing her home. This before and after focuses on the work done in the crawl space. This humid, dirty space has been transformed thanks to our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier and kept dry with a SmartSump Sump Pump installed at the low point of the area. These two Systems work together to direct water out of the home while controlling the humidity to stop mold growth. Additional pumps and foundation work was done to the basement to create a safe environment Margret can live in for years to come!

    Basement Water Leaking Stopped In Holmes, PA

    This home in Holmes, PA, suffered from water seepage in the basement. A generic sump pump was previously installed by another company and wasn't able to pump out the water, flooding the basement. Our team worked hard to install our patented Triplesafe Sump Pump and patented Waterguard Drainage System. TripleSafe is unique compared to other sump pumps because of its specially designed sump liner, two powerful pumps, and a power pack backup pump. These components create a strong, reliable, one of a kind system working perfectly together to keep your basement dry. Our WaterGuard is also a unique drainage system, sitting above the "mud zone" instead of in it. Water flows freely through special holes on the side and into the sump to be discharged. all these systems work seamlessly together, creating a dry home and providing peace of mind to the homeowners.

    Failed Polyurethane Injection Job Fixed in Mantua, NJ

    Polyurethane injection resins are common in the toolbox of a typical waterproofing company. The issue with this method is that it will never be a permanent fix. Foundations walls will still shrink and expand with the hot and cold seasons, and the wrack will eventually reappear and leak because the resin dries as hard as the wall, but still has those weak crack points present. This requires that same company to come out and charge you again for the same flawed job. Dry Guys offers a better answer. A permanent solution. Our FlexiSpan System combines sealant with a flexible foam drain strip. This is topped with a tough, flexible, and waterproof sealant overlay. This allows the repair to "flex" with the natural movements that all walls undergo throughout the year. This particular job also features our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier for added moisture protection through the porous concrete wall. Finally, a simple fix for what used to be an expensive problem.

    Bowing Wall Repaired in Bellmawr, NJ

    John was trying to sell his property in Bellmawr, NJ until an inspector discovered his basement walls were bowing in towards the home. This is caused by extreme amounts of pressure put on the walls which developed a vertical crack along the cinderblock wall. Problems like this only get worse over time and will lead to the wall collapsing and possibly a collapse of the structure. Knowing the home was a safety hazard and wouldn't sell, he called Dry Guys to help. Our System Designer Mike G. prescribed our patented CarbonArmour Carbon Fiber Strap System. How do carbon fiber straps fix this issue? Imagine squeezing two wooden blocks together and poking them in the middle. The blocks will begin to bow in the same way John's wall did and eventually fly from your hand. Now imagine a piece of tape where the break in the blocks would occur. Not as easy to squeeze. Isn't it? These straps provide tension strength to the wall, which makes the foundation exponentially stronger! With our CarbonArmour System, the new homeowners will never have to worry about their foundation collapsing beneath them!
