Wet Dirt Basement Walls Fixed With EverBrace

Wet Dirt Basement Walls Fixed With EverBrace

Wet Dirt Basement Walls Fixed With EverBrace Wet Dirt Basement Walls Fixed With EverBrace

In the crawlspace, the foundation walls were surrounded by bare soil, lacking vital support. This unchecked soil carried the weight of the home, resulting in serious repercussions. The lateral pressure from the soil, along with water seepage, caused the exposed earth to collapse, posing a threat to the foundation's integrity. To address this, EverBrace was skillfully used to contain and stabilize the soil. Notably, this intervention not only resolved immediate issues but also came with a warranty to prevent future movement, mitigating potential problems. Additionally, the clay soil prevalent in the area worsened the situation, as its susceptibility to moisture-induced weakening compromised its ability to bear the weight of the structure above.

Job Stories From Westmoreland County, PA
Clean Air in Greensburg, PA

This is the second time this homeowner has used Keystone. We did great the first time so naturally, they called us back when it was time for a professional air purification solution. This customer had pretty bad air quality and they knew it, They actually used Luft monitors to measure and track the health of the air they breathe. The past few years data from Luft showed a very high particulate matter along with other issues. We are happy to report,  After a few weeks of the Aspen they literally have the best air quality in 3+ years and it isn’t even close. They have the data to prove it!  they are actually cutting back on allergy medications now.

Basement Waterproofing Work in New Kensington, PA

The homeowner had a leaking basement for a number of years and had finally reached a point where they wanted to fix the issue.  The damage had increased over the years and the homeowner was worried that structural damage would soon follow.  The issue started as a musty basement odor, but soon turned into puddles on the basement floor and then flooding.  They called Keystone Basement Systems to find out what could be done to address this issue.

 

The homeowner wanted to keep the whole basement dry so we installed WaterGuard around the perimeter.  They wanted to keep the whole basement dry all of the time so we added a TripleSafe pumping station with back up protection in case of a power outage, tripped circuit or mechanical issue on the primary pump.  This gave the owner significant comfort as the system was designed correctly with redundancy.  Lastly, to eliminate musty odors, a high performance Sedona Dehumidifier was installed.  The Owner took advantage of our extremely easy to use Home Repair Financing and had only a low monthly installment to pay each month with no pre-payment penalty.

 

In closing, the homeowner was very impressed and pleased.

Help my house is sinking

The homeowner got on HomeAdvisor and reached out with this message..... This is a bunker/storage room with possible foundation failure; separation between blocks is occurring, seems like it's sinking. The brick veneer that you can see on the outside is also pulling away. He's not sure exactly what the best fix is (looking for our expertise with that), but he mentioned possibly installing a new beam and posts to support the porch above this room and the desperation of "help my house is sinking"  

Keystone then sent out one of their best field inspectors by the name of Brian McWhirter. Brian sat down with the homeowners and discussed what was going on before going to look at the problem, in hopes of getting a better understanding to what they were worried about and what was most important to them . Brian then went down and evaluated the problem using his expertise and the tools required for the job. He then came up with a gameplan on how to fix it. The homeowners and himself then sat down and went over the plan to do some Custom Structural Support and also to use Footer Underpins. 

TripleSafe Sump Pump

The homeowners called in due to their house getting water in their basement. Keystone Basement Systems sent out expert field inspector Brandon Felicitty to evaluate the problem. After meeting with the homeowners and inspecting the situation he came up with a great plan using WaterGuard, a downspout system and last but most certainly not least the TripleSafe Sump Pump.   All told, this system provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.

Internal French Drain in Herminie

The homeowner reached out to Keystone basement Systems after finding us on Google to help with a problem of water coming into his unfinished part of his basement. Keystone then sent out one of their best field inspectors to sit down with the homeowner and discuss the issue before further inspecting it for himself. After speaking with the homeowner, and finding out he just purchased the house and wanted to take any steps he needs to to fix the issue, the field inspector took measurements and the proper diagnostics to come up with a plan. He and the homeowner spoke about it in great detail and came to an agreement that it was the best solution and should be done as soon as possible. The plan was to have a Internal French Drain System installed. Keystone Basement System's basement drain systems take this drainage concept to the next level by using a wall flange that allows seepage to enter the drain and collects water off the walls to easily funnel it away from your foundation. Our drain systems also prevent debris from entering the drainage area and provide a clean finished appearance on your floor.https://youtu.be/_mY1EHGAqmk  After installation the homeowner was once again very happy. 

PumpSpy Unit in Herminie

This homeowner reached out to Keystone Basement System to fix their basement water seepage problem. Keystone Basement Systems sent out Owner/operator and  Expert field inspector Aaron Stull to speak with the homeowner and evaluate and diagnose the problem. After his full detailed inspection, which included  but was not limited to measurements and water intake diagnostics, he came up with the plan to install a PumpSpy unit into their game room, in the far corner as per request of the homeowner, which was a great place to put it anyway.  A sump pump can be an incredibly valuable resource in your home. When water gets into your basement, the sump pump is what protects you from a flood that could cause expensive property damage. If you've had issues with water in your basement -- and even if you haven't -- it's smart to protect your home with a quality sump pump from Keystone Basement Systems. 

Downspout in Herminie

The homeowner called Keystone Basement Systems due to the fact that he had water coming into his basement. Keystone sent out one of their finest field inspectors to sit down with him and also to evaluate the issue first hand and see what the most rational plan of action to fix the issue was. After speaking with the homeowner and doing his inspection the field inspector came up with the plan to install a new drainage line. When your gutters discharge water next to your foundation, much of it can seep directly into the soil around your home. This can significantly add to basement leaking, and it can even contribute to foundation issues. By installing the downspout we were able to get the basement dry again which made the homeowner very happy.

Water in the garage

Upon inspection he had discovered venting that had to be removed along with the fact that this poor crawlspace needed CleanSpace installed. He also verified that the crawlspace gets wet after a rain or snow so he decided that a new drainage system along side some internal French drains would also ensure the dryness of this crawlspace.

Upon the day of the appointment, the field inspector showed up right on time and sat down to meet with these homeowners. The field inspector and the homeowner went over the issue at hand and that's when the field inspector learned that this homeowner was very concerned for his wife's safety as he noticed some mold on the walls and she has asthma. Knowing the necessity of this project getting done, the field inspector then got right into his detailed inspection.

Keystone promptly made him an appointment for a field inspector to go out to his house and not only inspect the issue but also have a face-to-face conversation about the problem. The field inspector and the homeowner first sat down to discuss the issue upstairs but quickly went downstairs per the homeowner's request. The homeowner felt that he explain the issue better if they were looking at it. The field inspector then saw that the water was most certainly only pooling in that corner, as a matter of fact, there was no moisture anywhere else.
