After living with basement troubles for some time, this homeowner thought it was time they finally had something done about it. They contacted us at TC Hafford Basement Systems, and we got to work right away! The main problem concerning this homeowner was their cracking basement wall, which needed additional support. To protect this wall from further damage, nine-foot PowerBrace beams were installed against the surface of the wall, fastened to the floor and joists above the wall. These beams can be tightened over time to force the wall back into position and hold it there permanently. Lastly, to handle the moisture accumulation the homeowner reported, a SuperSump pump was installed in the natural low point of the floor. This will take in any water gathering in the basement and pump it out of the home through a discharge line protected by an IceGuard attachment on the exterior of the home. IceGuard pipe segments protect homes by allowing any water blocked by ice or debris to escape the sides of the line before backing up into the basement.
Now that their basement wall is secured and the moisture problem has been addressed, this homeowner no longer needs to worry about their basement sustaining any long-term damage.
