This includes a battery-powered pump to prevent flooding during a power outage.

Foundation Settlement in Durham, NC

Leanne of Durham, NC contacted Carolina Basement Systems after learning that her crawl space had a ton of moisture getting inside due to cracks and gaps from support columns shifting. This is most commonly caused by problematic soil not being able to provide a permanently stable foundation for the cinder-block-columns to support the home above it. Therefore, overtime as the soil settles and shifts, so do the supports. This does not only cause cracks within the foundation. This kind of issue can also lead to sagging floors, cracks in the interior walls, doors sticking shut, gaps between the floors and interior walls, and much more. If left untreated for long enough, the homes foundation could eventually completely collapse. Luckily, this homeowner contacted the local professionals at Carolina Basement Systems!

Our team of well-trained experts went right to work on permanently stabilizing this home's foundation. This particular job was going to require a SmartJack system in the crawl space as well as 2 helical piers around the concrete steps to the front door. SmartJacks are high-capacity steel piers that are installed into the crawl space to stop the settling of the floors. These piers are fully adjustable and overtime can help raise the floors back to their original position. Due to the extreme settlement and large cracks appearing in this home, it was going to take more than just the SmartJack system to stop the settlement. Helical piers were installed to permanently halt sinking in its tracks. Helical piers are turned down into the soil until competent strata is reached. They are then attached to steel brackets. This is because they don't rely on the weight of the structure to work, which makes this the perfect solution for light weight jobs such as decks and concrete stairs. After installation was complete, the crew cleaned up to leave the space better than it was found.

Waterproofing and Insulating Crawl Space in Durham, NC

The unsealed crawl space under this home was starting to experience problems from moisture in the air. Ripped insulation and mold growth were the two prominent issues.

The homeowners knew they needed to solve this problem before it got worse and made the entire home unhealthier. So, we inspected the crawl space for free and eventually installed our proposed solution.

Completely sealing the crawl space from the outside and waterproofing it allowed us to protect the air inside the crawl space and the rest of the home by extension. The homeowners were very happy with the newly protected crawl space.

Stabilizing Cracked Foundation in Durham, NC

We were inspecting this house because the homeowner started to notice cracks along the concrete foundation. We looked closely and inspected the foundation from inside the crawl space, and the cracking was a serious problem.

To stop one half of the home from sinking and causing further damage, we installed helical piers under the home. These metal piers dive deep into the ground to support and even lift the home back into place. This gives the home a sturdy place to sit.

The homeowners were thrilled with the peace of mind it gave them to know that their house would not be sinking any further.

Exterior Drainage Installation in Durham, NC

All the downspouts around this home were open at the bottom and allowing water to run directly onto the foundation of the home. The homeowners were rightfully concerned with this and decided to have us inspect the home.

 

We proposed that the homeowners install a French drainage system to keep that rainwater away from the base of the home. Our French drains were installed around the entire home and now manage the water around the home.

Sealing and Waterproofing Nasty Crawl Space in Durham, NC

This moist and nasty crawl space was a watery mess because of the failing protection that was installed. We cleared out the ripped black plastic and debris. After that, we installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier, SivlerGlo wall insulation, EZflow drainage around the perimeter, and a sump pump.

These products created an airtight seal against the weather outside and pumped unwanted water intrusion away from the home. The homeowners were thrilled with the upgrade to their home that gave them a healthier and more efficient air flow throughout the home.
