Problem: Addressing Basement Water Intrusion and Foundation Issues at Highland Baptist Church

Highland Baptist Church contacted our office with significant water problems in their basement. Grant Crowden, our specialist, performed a detailed evaluation, revealing several key areas affected by water intrusion. During his inspection, Grant also found signs of foundation instability, with numerous stair-step cracks and some wall heaving, suggesting stress from soil movement or hydrostatic pressure.

Additionally, we noticed elevated humidity in two parts of the basement, raising concerns about potential mold growth, damage to interior finishes, and overall indoor health. These findings of water intrusion, foundation weakness, and high humidity were crucial for developing an effective remediation plan. Grant’s expertise in pinpointing these problems was instrumental in devising solutions to maintain the church’s structural integrity and ensure a dry, healthy basement.

Solution: Comprehensive Basement Waterproofing and Structural Reinforcement Solutions

Our team implemented a comprehensive waterproofing strategy to effectively resolve the water intrusion challenges in the basement. We installed an extensive 311 feet of our Main Drain system, coupled with four high-capacity 1-HP sump pumps. This robust, stand-alone drainage channel system is designed explicitly for interior basement waterproofing. It efficiently channels water entering through the walls or floor seams into the system.

The sump pump and basin combo then actively expels this water, diverting it away from the foundation, thereby safeguarding the basement from water-related damage and ensuring long-term dryness.

Additionally, our crew installed eight Force Braces to address the critical issue of foundation wall failure. These braces are high-strength, tension-loaded steel I-Beams engineered to provide structural support and stabilization.

They are expertly designed to straighten and reinforce block or concrete walls, preventing further foundation movement. This reinforcement rectifies current structural issues and serves as a preventative measure against future foundation shifts.

We installed two advanced dehumidifiers in the basement to complete our comprehensive solution. These units are vital for maintaining optimal humidity levels and mitigating the risks associated with excessive moisture, such as mold growth, musty odors, and deterioration of interior finishes.

The dehumidifiers work in tandem with our waterproofing and structural reinforcement systems to ensure a healthy and secure basement environment, providing long-term peace of mind for the property owners.
