    Customer Testimonial

              My handyman told me I needed to get a foundation specialist to fix my problem and put in a sump pump. I searched online and found a couple of them in my area and there weren't many so l looked for highest ratings. You were the only ones I found with a high rating so I called you for an estimate on fixing my basement. I had to wait for a crew but when they came they were great!

    This homeowner was concerned about a musty odor coming from their crawl space.

  • Gore, VA Mold Removal
    Before
    Gore, VA Mold Removal
    After

    Gore, VA Mold Removal

    This home’s large crawlspace caused numerous problems for its homeowner. The space was damp, moist, and extremely dirty. Insulation was hanging down from the ceiling. The entire space was dusty and dirty. And water stains were all over the concrete blocks causing efflorescence and mold to be found on the walls and ceiling. Water was clearly not exiting this crawlspace properly. Even though this space needed multiple installations, Fortress Foundation Solutions was able to get the job done! In this 5 day install, Fortress provided this homeowner with solutions to transform her crawlspace. First, Fortress removed all of the debris and insulation from the space. After the space was clear, we then covered the ground, columns, and walls with CleanSpace drain matting. An interior drainage system, EZ Flow, was installed to help remove the unwanted water which was settling in the crawlspace. Two exterior drainage solutions were provided, the IceGuard and Lawnscape; these products remove the water from the crawlspace and allow it to travel further from the home. This ensures that the water will not seep back into the crawlspace. All of this water was pumped out of the crawlspace via a SmartSump. A Sanidry XP was installed to counteract the high humidity level (which was causing the mold to grow). Lastly, Fortress sealed all of the crawlspace’s vents with CleanSpace and installed an Everlast crawlspace door.
