Cracks like the one shown here are caused by pressure put on the outside walls from expanding soil. Clay soil can absorb a large amount of moisture causing it to expand and put pressure on your foundation walls. When the pressure becomes more than the wall can handle, the wall will begin to push inwards and crack.
This old pump is not powerful enough to discharge the water coming in from the foundation crack. The Dry Guys team will be installing one of our patented sump pumps and drainage systems to effectively waterproof this basement.
These steel i-beams will stabilize the wall in its current position without any further adjustment. Over time, the PowerBrace System can be tightened to make bowing or tilting walls straighter.
Unlike the previous pump that was installed, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System has three layers of defense to provide effective waterproofing. Along with the standard pump, there is a powerful 1/2 horsepower backup pump capable of discharging 3,900 gallons of water per hour. The last layer of defense is the UltraSump Battery Backup System. This heavy-duty battery backup can pump more than 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge.
We tighten each PowerBrace carefully so that the wall has the right amount of pressure against it. This will halt any further movement of the wall and sometimes makes it possible for the wall to be moved to its original position in the future. With the systems installed working together, this basement has been saved thanks to the Dry Guys Team!
The PowerBrace is a patented foundation wall repair system that's designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time.
This home built in 1972 in Pitman has been suffering from seepage problems due to the pressure put on the foundation walls from the soil expanding. See how the Dry Guys Team saves this failing basement.
