A customer called us because in the past he had issues with water getting into his crawlspace, which is definitely not a good thing! The customer had made sure all the water dried, but he wanted to do something to prevent that from happening again, so he called us! The customer was wanting a type of waterproofing system done, and a pump system tp prevent it from happening again! Along with a dehumidifier to prevent a nasty musty smell!
We had a customer call us and he had concerns with moisture in the basement! There was definitely water damage he was unsure of how little or how much water damage there was, he was wanting a permanent fix to resolve the issue and prevent it from happening more and more!

Water comes in many forms, all which are harmful to your crawlspace! Standing water, water vapor, mildew, leaks coming in through cracks, you name it.. it all does damage.
In this crawlspace we're seeing basically all of the above. Water marks down the walls show either water leaking or high humidity levels forming water droplets to drip down and form water spots on the ground. The solution? Simple! A full perimeter drainage system, pump, and dehumidifier!!
A full perimeter drainage system will drain the water out of the crawlspace through the pump and back out where it belongs, outside! The dehumidifier will bring the humidity levels down which will help with moisture concerns as well as reduce chances of mold, insulation damage, allergen irritants, and the whole system combined will help reduce heating/cooling costs!!
Tony is interested in encapsulation, he is not impressed with the vapor barrier that was installed & has learned about encapsulation online. There were past humidity issues in the crawlspace causing the insulation to fall down. Our solution was cleanspace vapor barrier encapsulation with a sedona dehumidifier. As you can see there is also water coming down the footing and we are able to stop that concern with a smartpipe perimeter system and sump.
This customer had an ongoing problem with his foundation that he could not fix on his own. His basement walls were failing and leaning inward. Finally, they called us to see if there was anything that we could do before they tried lifting their house and starting with a new foundation.
We sent our specialist out right away to find a solution. Once there, our specialist discovered that these customers had had a problem with water getting into their basement. This means that the ground outside the foundation walls was very saturated and not only causing his basement walls to fail but also allowed water into their home. The amount of weight and force against basement walls when the soils around the home are wet is enough to cause severe damage.
Our solution for our customer was to install our PowerBrace wall support system along with a full perimeter drainage system around his basement and CleanSpace down the walls to catch any water or moisture that could come in and guide it to the drainage system. These systems will ensure that not only will their basement stay permanently dry all of the time, that their walls are stabilized. The PowerBrace system can stop a wall, if caught in time, from moving forward anymore, and over time it can actually push the wall back to its original place by tightening the bracket installed at the top of each PowerBrace.
Is your crawlspace flooding?
We have a few products that would be great to install in your crawlspace to help prevent water from coming in and flooding it.
Crawl Space Sump Pump System:
The SmartSump™ crawl space drainage system is specially designed for crawl spaces. It has a lower profile than other pump packages, making installation in tight quarters easier.
At its heart, however, is the same high-quality 1/3hp Zoeller pump used in many of Basement Systems other pump packages.
Are you concerned with moisture in your crawlspace?
The SaniDry™ Sedona is the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system (without a bulky heat exchange core).
When installed in your basement or crawl space, the Sedona can help prevent mold and reduce musty odors, giving you dry healthy air and total comfort.
The Sedona is small in size, yet powerful enough to lower humidity in even the dampest environment, such as the basement or crawl space.
Customer called due to their basement having water issues. They had large amounts of cracks on the outside as well as the inside of their basement walls. We installed carbon armor and Flexispan

FlexiSpan® is a patented crack repair system available exclusively from Basement Systems. Developed after years of research, the FlexiSpan system is an alternative to epoxy injection, another crack-sealing technique sometimes used by contractors.
Leaking basements are a thing in the past! We have a solution that will keep your basement dry for good! Let talk about WaterGuard®
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.
Unlike conventional French drains that are installed outside the foundation or alongside the footing, WaterGuard drainage piping is installed inside the basement and won't clog with silt or plant roots.
WaterGuard effectively captures wall and floor seepage before it reaches your basement floor. Water enters the system via inlet holes and flows through the drainage pipe to your sump pump.
Basement Systems recommends installing WaterGuard along with our TripleSafe™ sump pump system for optimum protection.
Our complete basement waterproofing system offers everything you need to keep water out of your basement.
Homeowners prefer WaterGuard's discreet design. The drainage channel is hidden beneath a layer of concrete. Only the top edge of the wall flange is visible, so you'll hardly know it's there. Plus, WaterGuard comes with a 20-year warranty against clogs.
The WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system has a patented profile that includes:
During the last heavy rainfall, there was moisture/water in the basement underneath the flooring. The homeowner first had a plumber come out and determine it was not a plumbing issue and that it was most likely a foundation crack.

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.
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.

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.
