Foundation Repair Case Studies: Secured Foundation in Rock Hill, SC

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 by Nicole Valardi

Challenge

A customer's home renovations were put on hold when her contractor told her nothing else could be done until her foundation was secured. She contacted Dry Pro looking to get her foundation repaired and also interested in controlling the moisture in her crawlspace. System Design Specialist Paul went out to inspect her property. Paul noticed several cracks in the exterior brick on her home. He also found high moisture levels and wet falling insulation in the crawlspace.  

Solution

Our crew first started the repair by removing the falling insulation from the crawlspace. After, crew members Will, Rigo and Tommy were able to start repairing the foundation. They installed three SmartJacks with 8x8x1/2 in Steel Plates in order to load the weight. They also replaced 6ft band board and four-floor joists. After the crew tuck pointed to areas where the exterior brick started to crack.  

Once the wood crew was finished with their repairs, Orlando and his waterproofing crew installed a 10mil CleanSpace Starter System, Relative Humidity Monitor, Sanidry Sedona Dehumidifier, and Condensate Pump.
