Mike resides in Woodbury Heights, New Jersey with his wife and four kids.
Mike has been in the masonry and home improvement fields since 2007. He is a certified Waterproofing Specialist, receiving training from other in-house designers and from Basement Systems. He is currently a System Designer with Dry Guys and responsibly ensures that the systems installed in each home are the best solutions to the homeowner's issues.
Basement windows are a common trouble area for water to seep through. The edges and corners are prone to cracking when enough pressure on the walls is applied. This home in Woolwich Township was no different. Lucky for them, we have a great product to correct this issue. Our WellDuct Systems ties in directly with our WaterGuard System to collect water from the window well and to your sump pump. This relieves the hydrostatic pressure off the wall and prevents cracking and seepage.
Windows not closing right? Doors that were level, but are now crooked? These are common symptoms related to serious foundation problems.
Before Dry Guys, this home in Deptford, NJ experienced the same issues. A wall crack like this is common when an area experiences a lot of rainfall or freezing temperatures. When it rains, the soil soaks up water like a sponge and expands. This makes the soil heavier and increases the amount of hydro-static pressure pushing against the wall.
The same goes for cold weather. When the temperature drops below freezing, the moisture in the soil freezes and expands the same way a water bottle would if left in the car during winter. If issues like this aren't corrected, the home's foundation has a greater chance of collapsing.
To fix this issue, Dry Guys installed our patented PowerBrace System. This system freezes the inward wall movement and even has the potential to return the wall to the original position over time. Thanks to Dry Guys, this home is structurally sound and safe! The homeowner's next step would be our Waterguard Perimeter Drainage System to protect against future seepage.
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!
This crawl space in Blackwood New Jersey suffered from water seepage whenever it would rain. This also caused severe mold growth along the wooden floor joists. After scrubbing away the mold with our Mold-X2, our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier was set in place to stop moisture from the dirt floor from getting to the floor joist and enabling mold to grow.
Alberta had a problem with water entering her basement through her basement door. The harder it rained, the more disastrous the result. She had 2 other companies examine this issue before going with Dry Guys for our fair pricing, as well as our honest and professional sales rep! Our plan here was not to stop the water at the door, but to give it a different path to follow other than the concrete floor. We installed our patented WaterGuard Perimeter Drainage System and TripleSafe Sump Pump System. These two create a powerful combination that keeps the home dry all the time!
