Ms. Henergy's house was sinking and she noticed her bathroom walls were cracking, because of the settling of the home. She gave us a call and we came up with the solution to install four Push Piers under the footing of the corner of the house.
We were able to lift and level out the corner of the house, which then pushed back the cracking into the bathroom. She was very happy to have the house back to being level as well as seeing the crack in her bathroom back together.
sold Helical piers because a portion of his garage was settling
A customer called because there was some foundation settlement at the front corner of the garage. The settlement had dropped two inches of the side of the garage wall and was being torqued, cracking and was lifting up the brick facade and buckling stucco finish causing structural damage.
Foundation Supportworks of Idaho installed three Push Piers and was able to lift and stabilize the front corner of the garage.
Almost any kind of water problems in your basement or crawlspace can be solved with a SuperSump. In this customers basement we installed a SuperSump with an exterior discharge line to kick any water that may be in the basement out 20ft from the home.
Pictured, is a home that had settled so we needed to install our piers. This is a "before and after" of the hole that is excavated for our piers to be placed and then a photo of the pier once it is set before we backfill the holes.
The customer has a basement with sealant on the walls, no visible cracks, but every time it rains a little stream of water comes in on the corner of the foundation.
We installed Waterguard drainage system as well as a Super Sumppump. The Waterguard is installed to help drain the water to the SumpPump.
A job we did for Mr. Jackson,
The contractor that built his house ( a little over 3 years ago) had installed an illegal sump pump. About three months after they moved in Mr. Jackson noticed water in his crawl space. He dug a hole just big enough for a 5-gallon bucket, put the sump pump back in, and ran a hose from the pump. He did this to help pump the water out. But Didn't know that what he did was illegal.
We came and set his sump-pump up the right way.
The concrete walkway was separated and settling from the house. This was causing water
to get into the home's basement. We were able to lift the slab using our
Push Slab Piers system. After we lifted the slab we installed waterguard and a sump pump in the basement. This was done to prevent any future water issues in the basement.
Sold 4 pushpiers, Because the walls of this home had major settling! After we installed the push peris the walls of the garage were brought back in almost 4 1/2 inches.
Installed a new window well and downspout extensions to prevent the water from getting into the basement
Still, having water concerns after we installed a water system? Sometimes that happens and we have an easy fix to help.
We can install some lateral lines in the floor to get the water to the sump pump.
There were six Push Piers installed on the southwest portion of the foundation where the foundation had settled. We were able to lift the foundation 2 inches which leveled out the flooring of the master bed and guest bedroom. With the installation of the Push Piers, it provides the house with more stability and prohibits any future foundation settlement.
Ms. Palmgren had a single crack in her foundation, and she wanted to keep water from getting into her crawlspace. So we dug out the crack by removing the soil around her foundation and sealed the crack with Flexicock. By doing this seal, it will now prevent any water from getting into her crawlspace.

A client contacted us to get an egress window in their basement bedroom. They needed to replace their small basement window with an up to code egress window.
Water was entering their basement through two-bedroom walls. We installed Waterguard, SuperSump Pump, Lawnscape, and Iceguard.
The Waterguard was installed to drain the water to the SuperSump Pump. Lawnscape and Iceguard were installed to drain water away from the house and go towards the SuperSump Pump.
Preventative by sealing exterior cracks with nexuspro and lawnscape extensions to the bottom of downspouts
Mr. Atkinson called because he had water coming into his basement. He lived in a manufactured home that was leaking. There were cinderblocks on one side of the home and new ones on the other side of the house. The foundation was on an older farm house-single wide. When they put the double-wide home on, it was leaking shortly after they had moved in 2004. So they called because they need it to get fixed!
We found that the water was coming in from their egress window, so to fix this we installed a new Egress window well duct, Sump Pump and Waterguard and the Basement To Beautiful Panels
The Waterguard was installed to collect water and drain it to the Sump Pump.
Sump Pump was installed to pump all the water out of the basement, as well to pump any further water from coming in.
The Basement To Beautiful Panels are engineered foam panels with integral studs, that are fastened directly to the foundation walls. The panel features a unique, advanced SilverGlo foam insulation with graphite infused throughout the foam. The graphite drives the insulation Value (or “R” value) of the foam up by approximately 24% over conventional Expanded Polystyrene foam by lowering its thermal conductivity.
Mr. Atkinson was very pleased with the work! And left us a nice review on google
A homeowner in Eagle noticed he had two cracks in his garage foundation. The cracks went all the way through the garage and into the stucco.
We installed four Helical Piers around the garage to lift and stabilize it. We also installed Landscape wells to move water away from the structure and have it go down towards the rain gutters.
Mr. Lind called because he had a concrete window well that was cracked and caving into the basement. So we excavated the soil behind the wall so we could get a better idea of what we were working with.The concrete wall was pushed off the footing by 5 1/2 inches. So we installed our Geo-Lock wall anchors, and we were able to straighten the wall and secure it from any further movement. Mr. Lind was very pleased that we could get the wall back to being straight.
The corner of this customer's house was settling. We attempted to install PushPiers, But realize the structure was too light. So we installed HelicalPiers.
A helical pier is a steel shaft with round helixplates that provides a foundation support for various types of structures. ... Ram Jack deep-driven steel helical piers are 2-3/8″ or 2-7/8″ diameter sectional pipe piles. They are hydraulically rotated into the ground to bear on rock or a solid soil stratum.
Water was entering the basement through the entryway. We had already installed short section of waterguard and a smart sump pump. We installed a floor drain in the entryway to catch future water from coming down from the stairway.
Before and after of a basment that continued to let water in. Foundation Supportworks of Idaho installed DryTrak to ensure that the water will not continue to enter.
A gentlemens deck was settling due to over irrigation, and the siding of the house was cracking and separating due to the settlement.
To fix his issue we installed five Helical Piers in the front and on the side of the deck, Which needed 3 1/2 inches to level the deck back. After the level was complete we were able to bring the siding back together.
They called because they had a big crack down their wall. We installed SmartJacks, PowerBrace, Supplemental Beam
