This homeowner contacted Fortress Foundatin Solutions because they had some concerns about their foundation. There was a huge crack running along the floor in there home and it looked like one side had started to sink down. 

Fortress solved this problem by installing our Push Piers. Push Piers feature a patent-pending external sleeve that strengthens the pier at the critical tension point below the bracket. They are installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy duty steel bracket. Soil is backfilled around the piers once stabilization and lifting is complete to finish the installation.

Job Stories From Albemarle County, VA
Keswick, VA - Basement Waterproofing

This Keswick homeowner called Fortress Foundation Solutions to come up with a solution to the water coming into the corner of the unfinished basement. Our call center was quick to schedule this homeowner with an appointment for a System Designer to come out and assess the situation.

Once our System Designer came to assess the home, the solution was to install our Water Guard Drainage system. Our Foreman, and his crew went out to the Keswick home and began to prep the area for the system. Our Water Guard Drainage system sits flush with the footer around the perimeter of the home. Once that is in place, we install the Super Sump. The water guard drains water to the sump. The sump then pumps the water to a drainage line and drains the water out of your home. The crew then goes in with crushed stone and follows behind that cement to give a clean finished look.  

Sagging Floors - Charlottesville,VA

This homeowner in Charlottesville called Fortress Foundation Solutions because they had water intrusion in their crawl space, and the floors in their home had started to sag. 

After explaining all the issues they were having over the phone, we sent one of our System Designers, Scott Llewellyn, out to take a look. He recommended our SmartJack Crawl Space Support System, along with a SmartSump sump pump.

This system provides solid support for undersized beams and restores stability and straightness to sagging floor joists in a crawl space. The sump pump will work to keep the crawl space dry, preventing future water damage.

Crawl Space Encapsulation -Charlottesville,VA

The homeowners in Charlottesville, VA started to notice a musty smell in there home, along with standing water in the crawl space. While having concerns on fixing the problem they called Fortress to come take a look. Our System Designer,went to assess the situation. He came up with the best solution for the homeowners; encapsulate their crawl space.

 

Our Production team went out to install drainage matting, CleanSpace Encapsulation, condensate pump and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. All of these components together allow the crawlspace to remain free of water by draining the water out of the crawl space and keeping it clean from any outside factors.  The White Post homeowners final product of the home was a clean crawl space that will last years!

A customer in  Charlottesville,VA was in the process of putting their house on the market and they wanted to add value to the home by leveling out the sidewalk in the front yard of the home. So they reached out to us here at Fortress Foundation Solutions to help them out.

Our System Designer went out to the home to perform a free estimate and he decided the solution would be our Poly Level injection, which will expand to fill any gaps caused by erosion and raise the concrete until it is leveled.

Once our Foreman Brian Davis and his crew finished installing the  polyurethane foam, the result is a level and clean sidewalk!

Basement Waterproofing - Monroe,VA

This homeowner in Monroe , VA called Fortress with concerns about a water coming into the basement. This water coming in also caused an unpleasant musty smell. Our System Designer, Ed was able to go out to the home and give these homeowners a piece of mind with a permanent solution. The best way to fix this issue was installing our WaterGuard system, along with our Triplesafe sump pump.

Our Foreman, David  and his crew went out to the home and began to install these products. The crew began preparing the perimeter of the basement for the WaterGuard. Once the WaterGuard is in place, the crew then installed the Triplesafe sump pump. An outside discharge is also installed on the sump pump to allow the water to be pumped out of the basement.

We also followed in with drainage stone over top of the WaterGuard. This crushed stone allows the water to easily flow to the WaterGuard, and then to the sump pump. Once the system and the stone are laid, new cement is laid over the system to give it a finished look. The end result was a dry basement that would last years to come

Charlottesville, VA SmartJack Installation

This homeowner in Charlottesville reached out to Fortress Foundations Solutions because the floors of their home were sagging, and they wanted to get them supported before it became a bigger foundation issue.

Our System Designer, Chris Guill, went out to assess this home and determined that the best solution for this sagging floor issue would be to install the SmartJack System. The SmartJack System permanently lifts and stabilizes existing beams and floor joists in the crawl space, lifting and leveling the floors of the home! With the SmartJack System, a hole is first excavated where the footing will be installed. Next, the galvanized steel columns are cut to the appropriate length, and then assembled and connected to the beam or floor joists. Lastly, the SmartJack System is tightened into place, stabilizing the beams and lifting those sagging floors. 

This homeowner can now be confident knowing that their home is permanently supported and stabilized. They are glad they chose Fortress Foundation Solutions to protect their home!
