This is the beginning phase of one of our recent projects. The homeowner's request was for Fortress Foundation Solutions to fix the floors and dirt basement area of her home.
Our production team cleared out the area and leveled the dirt floor. CleanSpace encapsulation system was installed to isolate the house from the ground helping to control tempature and moisture within the space. Smart Jacks replaced wooden supports to lift and stabilize the beams and floor joists. The threaded rods within the steel comuns allowed for adjustment and custom fit for each Smart Jack installed. The Super Sump plus pumping system was installed to keep water draining away from the area. With the high-end 1/3 horsepower Zoeller pump, this system has the best pump available, pumping nearly 2650 gallons of water an hour. The patented SuperLiner has an airtight lid to prevent debris from getting in and moisture and odors from getting out. This sump system also includes the WaterWatch alarm system that will sound if water rises above the point where pump should turn on to alert of any potential problems before damage occurs. The transformation of this area now provides additional storage and a clean, protected environment for the homeowner.
