As water leakage began seeping in from the cinderblock walls of our client’s unfinished basement, it began to cause not only a foul smell, but also created a lack of usable space. Additionally, the presence of moisture created the atmosphere for mold and mildew growth, as well as wood rot and the potential for structural damage, which could cause a variety of health problems – both for our clients and their home. The home was built on a sloping elevation in such a way that water naturally pooled around the basement foundation, and the resulting water influx prompted our client to call Fortress Foundation Solutions and have one of our system design specialists come out to assess the situation.
To address the issue at hand, our sales representative Zach Bullock created a comprehensive solution to funnel any water entering the basement to our TripleSafe Sump Pump system, safely and automatically removing any water endangering the home’s basement. Our production team came out fully prepared to execute the plan. They installed our solutions, explained their process to our homeowner and answered her questions, ultimately leaving the basement drier, cleaner, and more organized than they found it.
For this Virginia home and thousands of others like it, we were able to repair the basement water issues that decreased the home’s value and increased the risk of future damage. Now, the homeowner has peace of mind thanks to the quality of our work, backed nationally by a life of the structure warranty. The basement is now being used for additional storage space, and the old cinder block walls have been given a face lift by our sleek, patented CleanSpace Wall Vapor Barrier system.
