Job Stories From Lynchburg City County, VA
Lynchburg, VA - Basement Waterproofing

This Lynchburg homeowner called Fortress Foundation Solutions for an expert’s opinion on the water coming through the walls and floor of the finished basement.  Our appointment center was able to schedule this homeowner with a time and day for a System Designer to come out and look. After a thorough inspection of the home, Chris, our System Designer decided that our Water Guard system was the best solution for this home.

 

On the installation day our Foreman, and his crew began to prep the area for the Water Guard system. They then laid the water guard around the perimeter of the home just below the footer. This allows water to flow through the guard to the sump pump. Our crew then installed a Super Sump, this sump pump allows the water to go out of the basement through a discharge line that is placed outside of the home. Once these products where in place they then filled in with crushed stone, and covered the area with cement for a clean finished look.

Basement Waterproofing - Lynchburg,VA


This homeowner in Lynchburg, VA called Fortress Foundation Solutions with concerns of water making its way into their basement. Water can seep through the foundation and into the basement through cracks in concrete or cinder block walls, through cracks in concrete floors, around basement windows, and through exterior access doors. Water coming into the basement creates the potential for musty, mildewed odors, high humidity, and mold growth. This can affect the air quality in the livable spaces of your home. You may notice musty odors on your first floor, or your home may feel humid and damp. After a thorough inspection of this homeowner’s basement, we developed a plan to address this homeowner’s concerns. First, we fastened CleanSpace, a heavy duty vinyl liner, to the basement walls and sealed all of the seams with a heavy-duty 4” wide vinyl tape.  The CleanSpace will keep any water or vapor entering through the basement walls from entering the basement and direct it into the drainage system. Next, we installed the WaterGuard Drainage System, sub-slab, along the perimeter of the basement. As part of the WaterGuard system, a Trench Drain was installed at the bottom of the steps from the basement’s outside access. This collects any water that makes its way into the basement and directs it to a sump pump.

Basement Waterproofing & Wall Support

This homeowner in Lynchburg, VA had concerns about their home. They had noticed after rain events water would puddle in the basement, causing a huge mess to clean up. Secondly, the homeowner had noticed cracking in the foundation walls. These walls had also began to bow inward. After calling the local experts here at Fortress, our System Designer Zach Bullock was able to go visit with the homeowners to provide a free estimate for a permanent solution!   

After Zach took a close look at the issues the homeowners were facing, he knew the best solution was our WaterGuard system and our PowerBraces. Zach explained that the WaterGuard system would go around the perimeter of the home and catch any water that came in. The water would then go to a sump pump where it would then go out of the home. Then, Zach explained why our PowerBraces were the best solution to help that bowing wall. PowerBraces are long steel beams that are anchored to the wall and help to stabilize the foundation that is failing. 

Our Forman, Brian Davis and his crew went out to this home to install these products. The crew began by prepping the area for the WaterGuard to be placed. Then the crew installed our TripleSafe sump pump. Once that was in place they began measuring and cutting the PowerBraces to fit the wall. Finally once the WaterGuard, TripleSafe and PowerBraces where in place, the crew laid fresh cement over the WaterGuard system for a clean finish to the system!

Lynchburg, VA Crawl Space Waterproofing

This homeowner in Lynchburg reached out to Fortress Foundation Solutions because the crawl space of their home was collecting water. They wanted this problem resolved before it caused bigger issues with their home.

After having a System Designer out to evaluate this crawl space and determine the best solution for this home, Fortress sent our Foreman, Jacob, and his crew to do the job. They installed a complete CleanSpace encapsulation, along with a SuperSump sump pump, an UltraSump Battery Backup System, and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. These products will work together to keep water and moisture out of this crawl space, keeping it clean and dry, and preventing moisture related issues from developing. Adding an UltraSump to any waterproofing project is always a good choice, because even if there is a power outage the UltraSump will continue to work to keep pumping water out.

There's no doubt that this homeowner can now be at ease even during the worst of storms. Fortress Foundation Solutions is pleased they were able to provide peace of mind to this homeowner!

The basement of this home in Lynchburg, VA had water seeping in through the corners, and under the doorway with rain. Tired of cleaning up water, the homeowner found Fortress Foundation Solutions online and decided to schedule an appointment for a free estimate.

During rain events any water will channel through the WaterGuard to the TripleSafe, and then be pumped out of the home and into the yard through an exterior discharge line.

Fortress sent our Foreman Donovan and his crew out to do this job. The WaterGuard was installed along the basement walls and will capture any water seepage. Any water will then be channeled to the TripleSafe and from there it will be pumped out of the home and into the yard a safe distance away through an exterior discharge line.

This homeowner is very happy and is having no issues with water coming into their basement. The basement is now dry and will stay that way all year round!
