Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Orlando, FL

Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Orlando, FL

Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Orlando, FL Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Orlando, FL

Basements are not that common in Florida, but we do come across one now and then. The reason for their scarceness is the high water table in most of Florida. However, there are some houses that do have basements in Florida. If you have a basement and it's wet or damp, we can help you!

A customer in Orlando, FL, called Florida Foundation Authority because he has had issues with a wet basement for a while now. He had to tear out some of his drywall because of water damage. Jim Pierpoint met with the homeowner and told him how we could use the WaterGuard system to permanently keep the basement dry.

WaterGuard is a sub-floor drainage system specially designed by the Basement Systems worldwide network. It sits on the concrete footer of the home and a flange against the wall catches water that may pour down the walls. The slots in the drain also catch water from on top of the floor and under it.

Our crew, led by Foreman Mike McDonald, installed WaterGuard around the basement by pulling up the concrete around the perimeter, setting the system at an angle, and repouring the concrete over it. They also installed a SuperSump with an UltraSump battery back up. This is sump pump duo that will collect water that drains from the WaterGuard and pump it out of the home.

The customer can now have peace of mind that his basement will stay dry. He will not have to worry about the condition of things he stores in that area of the home, or any mold growth or bad smells.

During the two years that he has lived in his house, a homeowner in Orlando, FL, noticed a structural problem was worsening. Some areas of the floor felt soft and uneven, indicating the floor joists in the crawl space were sagging and failing to properly support the above floor.

The homeowner wanted to address this problem before serious damage resulted, so he started to research repair options. He found information about Florida Foundation Authority online, and he was motivated to contact us for further guidance.

Inspector Joseph Grimsley ventured into the tight crawl space to assess the condition of the floor joists and support system. The home, built in 1934, had wooden joists and supports, which is common for homes built at that time. But wood can easily rot and fail over time. Other repair attempts, like bottle jacks, also were not properly supporting the above floor.

Joseph discussed his findings with the owner, and he then recommended one type of our many reliable repair solutions.

One of our crews, led by Doug Secrest, then installed several SmartJacks underneath new steel support beams in the crawl space. Made of galvanized steel, the heavy-duty SmartJacks permanently stabilize the floor and floor joists. They prevent further sagging and offer the best opportunity to lift the sagging floor areas aback to level. SmartJacks also will not rust or corrode, and they are designed to stop settling.  But if any settlement occurs, the SmartJacks can easily be adjusted.

The homeowner is pleased to now have a safe and stable living environment because of this trustworthy repair solution.

Pool Deck Repair and Exterior Drainage Upgrade in Orlando, FL

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Orlando, FL, started to notice some problems on their property. Several areas of their concrete pool deck were cracking, settling and uneven, and water was pooling around the foundation of the home.

Concerned with potential damage, the owners wanted to address these problems sooner rather than later. As they began to research repair options, they found information about Florida Foundation Authority on online resources like Home Advisor. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. One of our inspectors then visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the property. Our inspector then recommended having one of our crews complete a couple repair projects with our reliable solutions.

One thing we did was lift, level and stabilize the pool deck with the PolyLevel system. High-density polyurethane foam was injected under the concrete slabs to fill any voids and precisely lift the slabs back to level. NexusPro joint sealant also was used to fill the cracks and protect the newly repaired concrete.

We also improved the water management around the property by installing new exterior drainage lines. These lines connected to the ends of the gutter downspouts and were then placed in the ground for safety and aesthetics. The pipes were then directed to drain water to the edge of the property, and the end of the main line was concealed by a LawnScape outlet.

The homeowners are pleased these upgrades were completed to help enhance their property’s safety and appearance.

Stabilizing Sagging Floors with SmartJacks in Orlando, FL

After living in his house for two years, a homeowner in Orlando, FL, noticed some areas of the floor felt bouncy and uneven, like it was sagging.

After finding information about Florida Foundation Authority online, the owner wanted to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. One of our inspectors visited to evaluate the support system in the crawl space underneath the house, and he found these supports were starting to fail. Our inspector then recommended one of our reliable repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several SmartJacks underneath new steel supplemental support beams in the crawl space. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel supports permanently stabilize the floor joists and help raise the floor back to level. They also will not rust or corrode. They are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

The owner is happy to now have a safe and stable living environment because of this repair project.

Lifting and Leveling Uneven Sidewalk and Patio Areas in Orlando, FL

Homeowners in Orlando, FL, have been worried about the safety and appearance of their home for a long time. Several areas of the front patio and sidewalk had concrete that was cracking, sinking and uneven.

When concrete settles, mainly due to sinking soil underneath, this allows significant gaps between the slabs to form. Not only does this look unattractive, but tripping hazards also are present.

After seeing Florida Foundation Authority’s TV ads, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the concrete. Our inspector then recommended a state-of-the-art repair solution.

One of our crews then used the PolyLevel System to lift, level and stabilize the concrete. This involved injecting high-density polyurethane underneath the concrete slabs through very small holes. The material expands to fill any voids, and this allows for the exact lifting and leveling of the slabs. PolyLevel is lightweight, yet very durable. It will not wash out from under the concrete, and its quick cure time allows for normal traffic and weight on the concrete to resume just 15 minutes after installation.

The homeowners are pleased this unique repair was completed to help them create a safer living environment.

Upgrading an Exterior Drainage System in Orlando, FL

During the two years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Orlando, FL, noticed a growing problem with their exterior drainage system. They saw that water was pooling next to the foundation in one corner, and they were concerned this water could seep inside their house.

After finding information online about Florida Foundation Authority, the owners were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the exterior drainage system, and he recommended some upgrades.

One of our crews then installed new reliable downspout conductor lines on the property. These lines were placed in the ground and directed far enough from the home’s foundation so the water from the lines would not seep inside the home. A LawnScape outlet also was used to conceal the end of the line in the yard.

The owners are happy to have an updated exterior drainage system that will help keep their home dry.

Crawl Space Encapsulation and Dehumidification in Orlando, FL

After living in their house for a few years, homeowners in Orlando, FL, began to notice problems with increased humidity and moisture. They suspected the issues originated from the crawl space area under the house, and they wanted to have these problems addressed.

After learning about Florida Foundation Authority online, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who ventured into the crawl space to complete a thorough evaluation of the area. Our inspector then presented the owners with some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.

One of our crews then encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner, which is similar to swimming pool liner, completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space.

A SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier also was installed in the crawl space to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth. The discharge line from the SaniDry was directed outside and tied into a new exterior drainage line that was installed on the property. The end of this line, which was placed in the ground, was camouflaged by a LawnScape outlet in the yard.

The homeowners are pleased to now have a healthier crawl space and home because of these trustworthy repairs.

Protecting a Concrete Pool Deck in Orlando, FL

Florida Foundation Authority is not just there when something needs to be repaired. We are there to prevent and protect you from potential damage. 

After hearing about the PolyLevel system we offer, a homeowner in Orlando, FL, wanted to use it to prevent his concrete pool deck from sinking in the future.

To do this, our crew pumped small amounts of a polyurethane foam under the concrete through penny-sized holes. This foam is specially designed and is extremely durable. You also can walk or drive on it within 15 minutes of installing it! It is also environmentally-friendly and recyclable.

The PolyLevel installation will hold up through the years and support the concrete slabs, which will keep them from sinking or cracking.

The homeowner is happy with the results and glad that he chose to protect his investment in his home and pool.
