They called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati for a solution to this problem.
The homeowner met with one of our certified inspectors who recommended Helical Piers to be installed.

The dirt removed during install will be placed back on top of the Helical Pier making it unseen. Nobody will be able to tell that you have had these installed, but the homeowner will have the security of knowing they are there and the foundation is now safe from settling.

RimTight Rim Joist Insulation insulates the rim joist area of the home. The rim joist is the board just above the foundation at the perimeter of your flooring system above the crawl space.

In the summer, this causes condensation and humidity in the crawl space and in the home above making the environment uncomfortable.

A homeowner in Cincinnati had a crack in the basement wall that was leaking water into the basement. The homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati and scheduled an appointment with Jeff, a Certified Inspector. Jeff recommended the FlexiSpan Crack Repair System.
A typical crack repair involves a bead of sealant that is applied or injected into the crack. The FlexiSpan Crack Repair System takes it a little further. After the bead of sealant, a FlexiSpan Foam Drain Strip is applied over the crack. If any water would get passed the sealant the Foam Drain Strip will wick the water down into the drainage system that is installed below the repair. A Sealant Overlay is installed over the repair, sealing the repair completely. This makes this crack repair a permanent repair that will not leak.
If you have cracks that are leaking water into your basement, call The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati to find out how we can help.
