Scott F. of LifeGas in Rincon, GA called Lowcountry Basement Systems with a waterproofing problem. The loading dock at his industrial warehouse was collecting water. Scott said the sump pump already installed couldn’t keep up with the heavy rains.

Lowcountry Basement Systems sent an inspector to review the situation. It was recommended to install a SuperSump pump. The SuperSump is a top-rated 1/3 horsepower Zoeller cast iron pump that offers reliability and high-volume pumping. It was the perfect solution to keep the loading dock area dry. Installation took one day and the management team at LifeGas was happy to have the problem behind them.

SmartJacks Bring Stability to Homeowner in Clyo, GA

Amber S. of Clyo, Ga was making lunch for her two children one day when she noticed the floors beneath her feet began to flex. A few more steps out of her kitchen and the floors sagged easily. The hardwood floor she had known for years no longer brought warmth and comfort. Amber became afraid that something would happened if the floor wasn’t fixed.

A quick Google search provided the name of Lowcountry Basement Systems. On the website, there were many testimonials from people who had similar flooring issues fixed by Lowcountry Basement Systems. Amber called the phone number on the screen and asked to have an inspector look at her floor. Lowcountry Basement Systems sent Brian Townsel, Inspector, to her home in Clyo, Ga.

Brian examined the home and went underneath, in the crawl space. He then provided the solution that would remedy Ambers worries. Three SmartJacks® and repair work to a flooring joist would be the perfect solution for her and her family.

Amber went ahead with the project. It took two days to complete. She felt a lot better knowing the problem was fixed and her home was safe.

 

CleanSpace Moisture Barrier in Guyton, GA

Melanie V. of Guyton, GA was having problems with her foundation. She noticed that her home was beginning to settle on both sides of the center beam of her foundation. Her kitchen and living room floor tiles were cracking, and the problem was just getting worse. After doing some research online, she decided to call Lowcountry Basement Systems and schedule a free appointment with one of our inspectors. 

Our inspector took a look at her crawl space and documented what he saw. He showed her pictures of the crawl space and provided her with a detailed presentation of the solutions to fixing the problem. He suggested that she encapsulate the crawl space to prevent further moisture and humidity from weakening the beams in her crawl space that was causing her home to settle. Lowcountry Basement Systems encapsulated the crawl space with CleanSpace Liner, a seven-layer reinforced polyethylene that isolates the home from the earth and reduces humidity levels.

After three days of installation, the crawl space was completely encapsulated with CleanSpace. The homeowner was thrilled with the outcome!

Rincon, GA Veterinary Hospital In Need of Helical Piers

A Rincon, GA veterinary hospital contacted Lowcountry Basement Systems after noticing signs of foundation settlement in their clinic. Over the years the hospital's foundation was slowly sinking when rain water began eroding away the soil underneath the slab. Due to the sinking, a large crack started to run throughout the clinic's floor.

The veterinarians said it was running through about 80% of the hospital. They knew they needed to address the issue as soon as possible before it got any worse, so they called Lowcountry Basement Systems to schedule an appointment with an inspector. 

Lowcountry Basement Systems sent Dan Friesen to the hospital to inspect the foundation. Dan immediately knew that the foundation was beginning to settle, and helical piers were the solution to the problem. Helical Piers are installed to appropriate depths and capacities, and a steel foundation bracket is connected to the helical piers and attached to your foundation’s footing. The weight of your home is then transferred from the original, unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soil or bedrock. The system is uniquely designed to potentially lift your home, making helical piers the best solution for complete foundation stabilization and lift.

After just two days of hard work from the foundation team, the hospital was lifted back to its appropriate level. The veterinarians no longer had to worry about the foundation sinking more. They were thrilled with the outcome!

Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System in Guyton, GA

Rusty H. of Guyton, GA fixed his crawl space a few years earlier, at least he thought he did. Rusty paid a termite company to lay down a sheet of plastic in his crawl space to stop the moisture, mold, and odor problem. However, it didn’t work.

One day, Rusty was replacing his subfloor insulation and noticed back dots on the wood. He went online and called Lowcountry Basement Systems for a free inspection. The inspector recommended installing a Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System to seal the earth and it’s moisture, off from the home.

In addition to sealing off the crawl space, the Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System included a sump pump, and dehumidifier that would constantly move water and moisture away from his crawl space and foundation. Within three weeks, Rusty noticed the air in his house smelled better, the home wasn’t humid, and the microbial growth stopped growing.

Foundation is Lifted with Helical Piles in Rincon, GA

Chris and April, of Rincon GA, noticed a corner of their garage was sinking, and a small crack appeared on the exterior. They were concerned with settlement and didn’t understand. Chris went online and searched for a company that could help. He called Lowcountry Basement Systems for a free inspection.

The inspector recommended stabilizing the foundation with three helical piles and brackets under the footing of the sinking corner. Chris and April decided to move forward with the project and prevent the issue from getting worse.

The helical piles were installed, brackets placed under the footer of the foundation and stabilization was achieved in one day. The piles also gave the Lowcountry Basement Systems team the opportunity to attempt lift and raise the footer back into place. The lift was successful and the gap in the crack was reduced. Chris and April were thrilled! 

Damaged Floors Leveled and Supported in Rincon, GA

Milton M. of Rincon, GA needed to replace his floors. His home had sustained water damage and the floors rotted out. Before buying new floors, he learned about the process of replacing floors online. During his research he discovered that he might have a subfloor or foundation issue. Before investing thousands of dollars into new flooring, hoping it would stay intact and beautiful, Milton called the waterproofing and foundation experts at Lowcountry Basement Systems and scheduled a free inspection of his crawl space.

The Lowcountry Basement Systems inspector did a thorough evaluation of the foundation, during which he noted a significant lack of foundational support in the crawl space. The inspector designed a custom solution for Milton that would fix his problem and allow him to install nice new flooring that would last. The inspector recommended installing SmartJacks to stabilize specific areas of the main beam and other joists. Once installed, the damaged areas of the subfloor could then be replaced for the new flooring to be installed.

The team at Lowcountry Basement Systems completed the foundation repair work in one day and leveled Milton’s subfloor for the flooring company. The damaged areas were replaced and Milton’s floors were structurally sound once again. He very happy that he fixed the foundation before installing his new floors.

123-Year-Old House Stabilized in Meldrim, GA

Harry and Juanita S. of Meldrim, GA had problems with their foundation. The pillars supporting their 123-year-old two-story house had deteriorated and caused the floors to sag. Harry and Juanita noticed the front pier crumbling over a decade ago, the floors got worse as time went on, and they worried their floors would fall apart.

Harry and Juanita had seen an ad for foundation repair in the Savannah Morning News and called Lowcountry Basement Systems for a free inspection of the home they had lived at for 46 years. After a thorough evaluation inside and underneath the home, the Lowcountry Basement Systems’ inspector recommended adding additional support to Harry and Juanita’s foundation under the subfloor in the crawl space. The project would use a SmartJack System of fully adjustable galvanized steel piers, to support the sinking areas of the home.

The project took two days to complete, and Harry and Juanita now have the peace of mind their home is on a stable foundation once more.

Sinking Garage Stabilized, Secured in Rincon, GA

Kevin D. of Savannah, GA emailed Lowcountry Basement Systems with a problem. The shed in his backyard sat on a slab that sunk, causing water to run into the shed. An inspector from Lowcountry Basement Systems visited Kevin’s home and assessed his sinking slab. The inspector recommended using PolyLevel, a two-part expanding polymer foam engineered to lift concrete.

Family Home is Protected from Moisture in the Crawl Space, Rincon, GA

Michele B. of Rincon, GA inherited a second home. She didn’t live there and didn’t have plans on moving in anytime soon. She wanted to protect the family home. There was one problem with the home that needed to be addressed. There was excess moisture under the home.

Lowcountry Basement Systems inspected the home and documented the relative humidity in the crawl space. Photographs of mold and microbial growth were taken and a solution to Michele’s moisture problem was recommended by the Lowcountry Basement Systems inspector.

Drainage matting a dimpled plastic sheet would be used to cover the earth and channel water to a SuperSump sump pump for evacuation. The crawl space vents would be sealed to prevent warm humid air from entering the cool crawl space. A SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier would be installed to ensure the humidity level remained low.

With the solution designed, Michele went forward with the project. After the system was installed the mold under the home stopped growing – there wasn’t any moisture, so mold growth and wood rot was prevented. Michele was happy to have her family home protected.
