The cinder block walls in this Allentown basement had horizontal cracks running through it. When the homeowner went to sell the home, this damage scared potential buyers away. His realtor suggested he call Quality 1st to get a free estimate.
Ken Peare, a Basement Repair & Design Specialist, inspected the basement and explained that the outside pressure from soil and water can cause foundation walls to crack and buckle. This hydrostatic pressure was causing the cracks in the foundation and bowing wall. Ken told the homeowner about the PowerBrace wall repair system which is designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time. To address the water getting into the basement, Ken suggested the WaterGuard Drainage System and SuperSump Sump Pump. WaterGuard is a fully covered perimeter drainage system that will catch any water leaking into the basement and direct it to the SuperSump Sump Pump. Outside the home an IceGuard Discharge Line would prevent the system from freezing during the long New Jersey winters. A LawnScape, a pipe buried from the downspout to a special outlet, will let the water out onto the surface, while camouflaging the end of the pipe.
The homeowner was very happy there was a solution to his foundation problems and something that would finally get the water out. He tells all his Allentown neighbors to call Quality 1st Basement Systems to fix any basement problem.
