A homeowner in Amelia, Ohio called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati regarding problems with a porch that was sinking. We used PolyLevel Injection to resolve this problem for the homeowner.
PolyLevel Foam is used to raise a concrete slab on sidewalks, driveways, and porches. A small hole is drilled into the concrete and the PolyLevel Foam is injected under the concrete to be raised. The PolyLevel Foam fills the voids underneath the concrete slab and raises it up. The hole that was drilled into the concrete is patched and the porch will be ready to walk on in about 15 minutes.
In these before and after photos, you can notice that there is a space between the siding and the porch and on the after photo space has been removed.

Using PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam we lift and level sunken concrete slabs. The foam expands beneath the surface of the concrete lifting the sunken concrete slab. The foam cures over the course of a day leaving a powerful and lightweight foundation beneath the slab. PolyLEVEL is the preferred method over traditional forma of mudjacking or slab jacking.
A homeowner in Amelia, Ohio noticed some cracks in a basement wall so they called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati for help resolving this problem. The homeowner met with Mike, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that a WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, and a PowerBrace System is installed to resolve the problems that the homeowner was having in the basement.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system that is installed under the floor at the base of the foundation wall. This piping system is used to collect and intercept water from seeping into the basement. The water that is collected by the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is pumped out of the basement with a sump pump system, such as the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a high-end 1/3 hp pump that is used to pump water out of the basement. The SuperSump can pump up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. It also includes the WaterWatch alarm, the SuperLiner, and an Airtight Lid. The WaterWatch Alarm will sound if there is a pump or power failure. The SuperLiner is a rugged, heavy-duty liner that houses the pump and will not cave in or crack. The Airtight Lid keeps moisture from evaporating back into the basement, keeps things from falling into the liner and also helps to quiet the pump.
The PowerBrace System is steel I-beams that are secured tightly against the wall with brackets that are attached to the floor and floor joists. The PowerBrace System is used to stabilize a wall that is bowing, cracking or tipping. There is an adjustable bracket on the PowerBrace that can be tightened over time and can potentially reverse the wall failure.
Having the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System installed will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and then it will be pumped out of the basement by the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System. This will keep the basement dry so that the homeowner can use it for storage or living space without worries of water intrusion. AND with the PowerBrace System installed on the wall in the basement that was cracking, the wall is stabilized and protected from further movement.
An Amelia, Ohio homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati regarding problems they were having with water seeping into the basement through a crack in the foundation wall. The homeowner met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, who recommended a FlexiSpan Crack Repair System is installed to resolve this problem for the homeowner.
The FlexiSpan Wall Crack Repair System is a revolutionary, permanent, and a "works every time" solution. A common way to repair a wall crack is using some type of injection method. This will work for a period of time, but as the home continues to settle, the wall crack will most likely open again and begin to leak. The FlexiSpan has three layers of protection against leaks. First, a bead of sealant. Next, is the Foam Drain Strip. If there is any small amount of water that gets past the sealant, the foam drain strip will drain the water down into the drainage below. The last layer is a sealant overlay a tough, flexible, waterproof seal that is installed from top to bottom of the crack creating a complete seal.
