David from Boise spent all spring building his dream deck. David's brother in-law told him to dig a 3ft deep hole and fill it with concrete as the footing to support the structure above. Because his brother in-law is a contractor, David took his advice. By the end of spring David had his dream patio finish just in time for the summer.
Summer storms left 6 inches of water in David's back yard turning it in to a swamp. When the water was gone David walked around inspecting the damage. As he stood back away from the patio, he noticed it was lower on one end. He could see that the water had moved the soil down lower and now his newly built deck was less than perfect. He knew he could fix this issue but that it could turn into a reoccurring issue over the years and David was just ready to enjoy his deck.
David jumped on the web and searched in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Mountain Home, Twin Falls, Nampa, Caldwell, Kuna, Garden City, Ontario and Pocatello. He was looking for a long-term stabilization product for his deck. He knew that with a long-term stabilization product he wouldn’t have to worry about this issue for a very long time.
That’s when David gave us a call!
We sent one of our foundation specialists out to look at the deck. Our EZ Post Helical Support System was exactly the product David was looking for! In addition to offering the utmost strength and stability, EZ Post offers many other benefits over traditional concrete footing. Installation can be completed year round. EZ Posts are also installed deeper than traditional concrete footings, making them less susceptible to changing moisture content in the soil. But what David loved the most was the 5 year warranty.
Now David can sit back and enjoy his deck year after year with no issues.
Eric and Kim own an old farm house in the small town of Grant, right outside Idaho Falls. In the back yard they have a very large potato cellar. At first they used the cellar as storage but Kim wanted to use the large space for much more.
She wanted to turn it into an art studio/play room for her kids. She knew it would take a lot more then just cleaning up the space and laying down carpet. She wanted it done right, she knew she would be living in this house for a very long time and he just wanted to take advantage of all the space she could. She talked with Eric and they started to look for a company that specialized in finishing basements. One thing they had to be sure of was that they needed to make sure the space was waterproofed, being surrounding on almost all sides by soil the ground water could become their biggest issue.That’s when they called Foundation Support Works. We have all the right tools, products and knowledge to take care of all their needs and wants on this project.

Homeowners discovered water leaking into their basement. WaterGuard, SuperSump, IceGuard, and a Lawnscape outlet were installed to adequately waterproof the basement.
Jeremy in Pocatello owns a house that is about 100 years old with an addition added to the house later. The foundation of the main portion had settled more than the addition, causing the foundation to crack. Cracking foundations can create many problems for properties--the floors can sag, water can leak into the crawlspace through the cracks, and cracks can even develop on the inside of the house in the bricks and drywall.
Jeremy was smart and called us for his free estimate. Quickly, we sent our design specialist, Ryan, to his home to assess the situation and provide a potential solution. Ryan suggested we install CarbonArmor to repair the cracks and prevent them from growing any further.
Unfortunately, Jeremy decided not to accept our suggestion to pursue other options. However, if we had installed our carbon Armor, it would have repaired his foundation concerns and left him with peace of mind.
Mr. & Mrs. Maynard had called because they had spoken with us at a Home and Graden Show that we participated in. After speaking with us they decided they needed to get their crawlspace encapsulated. Most people learn that having their crawlspace encapsulated helps make the air they breathe in their homes better and cut down on their energy costs. Our crew left there with happy customers and a great review!
We quoted for a waterproofing system.
First, they needed Our Nexus Pro Crack Sealer to seal in all the cracks on their basement wall.
Second, We installed our CleanSpace to cover the basement walls.
Third, we installed our Waterguard drainage system with a triple safe sump pump
NexusPro® is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially engineered to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, NexusPro resists UV rays, which means it won't crack, bubble, or dry.
Wall System utilizes a thick (20mil) white poly sheet material to completely cover basement foundation walls. CleanSpace® is installed by fastening the material to the rim joist atop the foundation wall, and by installing press-fit plastic fasteners into the masonry.
The WaterGuard® basement waterproofing system from Basement Systems is an innovative interior basement drainage system designed to effectively solve your basement water problems.
When combined with our sump pumps and other waterproofing products, WaterGuard will keep your basement clean and dry year-round.
The TripleSafe™ sump pump system keeps your basement dry with triple the protection. Most sump pumps fail because of either a failed pump, a pump that can't handle high volumes of water or power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three sump pump problems.
