This homeowner gave Fortress a call because each time they would receive any rain in their area, their basement would too!

Our system designer, Chris Guill, went out to their home to do a complete inspection. After providing an estimate that included a full perimeter WaterGuard System along with a TripleSafe Sump Pump, this homeowner quickly agreed! 

Our WaterGuard System is the ideal choice when waterproofing a basement. This French drain system is installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing, keeping the drainage system out of the "mud zone" where it could potentially get clogged. All water enters the WaterGuard flowing to the sump pump and is pumped out of the home. The TripleSafe includes three pumps - two for heavy rains and the third connected to a battery backup in case the power goes out. Now the basement is dry in all situations.

This homeowner in Galax contacted Fortress with concerns about their home's foundation. Stair-step cracks is an indicator of foundation sinking and settling. System Designer, Chris Guill, went out for a full evaluation. He determined the home needed foundation repair. 

Our crew installed 10 Push Piers to lift and stabilize that foundation. Push Piers are installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy duty steel brackets. Soil is backfilled around the piers once stabilization and lifting is complete to finish the installation.
