Job Stories From Gainesville, VA
Tripping Hazard in Gainesville, VA

When a homeowner in Gainesville, VA noticed a real tripping hazard along their sidewalk due to uneven concrete, they didn’t just brush it off; they took action by reaching out to us at Fortress Foundation Solutions. We understand how crucial it is to address these safety hazards promptly, not just for aesthetics but to ensure the safety of everyone around. Upon receiving their call, our Customer Care team quickly scheduled a home inspection. Our System Design Specialist visited the home, carefully inspecting the affected sidewalk areas. The diagnosis was clear: the concrete slabs had sunk over time, causing uneven surfaces. To tackle this head-on, we proposed a two-fold solution: PolyLevel and NexusPro. PolyLevel, an innovative foam injection, was used to lift and level the concrete slabs, ensuring they were brought back to their original position. The NexusPro was then applied as a sealing agent to address the joints and cracks, providing a long-lasting and durable finish. This not only solved the tripping hazard but also significantly enhanced the curb appeal of the homeowner's property. Our production team proficiently executed the solution, starting from precisely injecting PolyLevel underneath the concrete to lift it gently, then sealing and protecting the joints with NexusPro. It was a seamless process that took minimal time, caused little to no disruption, and, most importantly — got rid of the dangerous tripping hazard. Thanks to our rapid and efficient handling of the situation, the homeowner was beyond pleased with the outcome. Their sidewalk is now safer and more aesthetically pleasing. It's stories like these—a combination of our tailored solutions and our complete dedication to solving our customers' problems—that reiterate why we're committed to ensuring the safety and satisfaction of homeowners in our community.

Humid Crawlspace in Gainesville, VA

Recently, at Fortress Foundation Solutions, we had the opportunity to help a homeowner in Gainesville, VA, transform their damp crawlspace into a dry, usable storage space. The culprit was a persistent moisture problem, making the area unusable and a concern for potential mold growth and wood rot. After the homeowner contacted our customer care team, we quickly scheduled a home inspection to get to the root of the issue. Our System Design Specialist went out to the property, performed a thorough inspection of the crawl space, and identified the best course of action to tackle the moisture problem. The solution recommended was a combination of our top-of-the-line products: CleanSpace, SaniDry Sedona, and SilverGlo. This package was chosen specifically to not only address the moisture but also to enhance the overall environment of the crawl space. Our production team got to work shortly after. They started by lining the crawl space with CleanSpace, a durable liner that effectively seals off the area from ground moisture. Next, to ensure the space remained dry and healthy, the team installed the SaniDry Sedona, a high-performance dehumidifier designed to maintain optimal humidity levels. Lastly, SilverGlo insulation panels were installed on the walls to ensure the space was energy efficient, maintaining a consistent temperature and further protecting against dampness. The transformation was remarkable. Not only was the homeowner able to repurpose the crawlspace as a valuable storage area, but they were also able to do so with the peace of mind that comes from knowing the space is now dry, healthy, and properly insulated. At Fortress Foundation Solutions, watching the homeowners' relief and satisfaction once the job was completed reminded us why we do what we do—providing reliable and long

Bowing Wall in Gainsville, VA

When we received a call from a concerned homeowner in Gainesville, VA, about a bowing basement wall, we knew we had just the solution they needed. The structural integrity of their home was at risk, and urgent action was required. After our Customer Care team quickly scheduled a home inspection appointment, our skilled System Design Specialist was on-site to assess the situation thoroughly. What we found was indeed worrying: the basement wall was seriously compromised, bowing inward under the external soil pressure. This not only jeopardized the home's safety but also its value. We recommended the installation of Carbon Armor – a state-of-the-art solution known for its strength and reliability. Carbon Armor uses fiber-reinforced polymers that are 10 times stronger than steel, ensuring a durable fix to the structural weakness without the invasive disruption of major construction work. Our production team, efficient and meticulous, got to work. The process involved carefully preparing the wall, applying the specialized Carbon Armor straps, and securing everything into place. This non-invasive approach offered minimal disruption to the homeowner's daily life while providing a lasting solution to the concerning problem. Once the job was completed, the transformation was immediate. The homeowner no longer has to worry about the integrity of their basement wall. Not only is the structural issue resolved, but they were also left impressed by the quick, clean, and effective resolution our team provided. At Fortress Foundation Solutions, it's our goal to ensure peace of mind by reinforcing the safety and longevity of homes with reliable, innovative solutions.
