Then a specialized mortar-like grout or "mud" is pumped, under pressure, to raise and level your slab. The holes are filled with concrete and troweled smooth. Most jobs can be completed in one day.

After a particularly heavy rainfall, Eugene H. of Crossville, TN, was shocked to find a small flood in his unfinished basement. In need of a waterproofing contractor in his area, Eugene decided to call Master Dry Foundation and Waterproofing Specialists after seeing their booth at a local home improvement expo.
Master Dry’s waterproofing expert Frank Yelencich conducted an inspection of Eugene’s basement and provided him with a free estimate for suggested repairs. Foreman Michael Geasland soon arrived on the job to install a WaterGuard drainage system and a SuperSump sump pump to remove water and keep Eugene’s basement dry, even during periods of heavy rain. The crew also installed an IceGuard discharge line device to ensure that water would be able to drain out of the basement even if the pipes become frozen or blocked. This water is directed to a LawnScape outlet where it is carried away from the foundation to avoid further drainage issues and foundation damage.
Now when a storm hits the area, Eugene won’t have to run downstairs to check on his basement because he has a trusty waterproofing system to keep his home dry and healthy!
Charles G. of Sevierville, TN knew he needed a new water heater. His old one had leaked everywhere, ruining the bottom of his basement walls and damaging the floor. Because of the amount of water damage in his basement, Charles knew that the source of the problem had to be bigger than just the leaky water heater. He contacted Master Dry Foundation and Waterproofing Specialists, hoping they could fix all his problems. Waterproofing expert Curtis Ward arrived for a free inspection of Charles’s basement.
The homeowners’ fears were confirmed when Curtis examined the space. He saw two different areas spoiled by water leakage – one clearly from the water heater, but one from exterior water seeping in. First, Curtis suggested installing a FloodRing around the new water heater to prevent damage to the basement in the event that another leak occurred. A TrenchDrain system was installed to catch any water seeping in, and a WaterGuard drainage system would direct it to a TripleSafe sump pump for removal from the house. Finally, Curtis suggested BrightWall paneling for the walls. This waterproof material would make the whole basement look clean and attractive. Foreman Michael Geasland and his crew had finished the repairs and set up the new water heater faster than Charles ever imagined!
Gerald M. of Sevierville, TN was faced with a big problem. Walking around the side and back of his home, he could see several stair-step cracks in the foundation. Entering into his crawl space told the same story – there were gaps big enough for him to fit his fingers in! Severely concerned about the state of his foundation, Gerald did a search for foundation repair contractors in his area, which brought him to the website for Master Dry Foundation and Waterproofing Specialists. He set up an appointment right away with specialist Scott Frazier, who assessed the situation.
Foreman Josh Williams and his crew originally planned on installing nine push piers to lift the foundation and give it the extra support that it needed. As the job progressed, the team decided to replace a few push piers with helical piers that worked better for a lighter-weight section of the house. All in all, the piers were able to reach down far enough in the soil to transfer the weight of the structure to competent soil strata.
At the beginning of the project, the team estimated that the foundation had settled about four inches into the ground. But following the repairs, the huge cracks and gaps were completely brought together and no longer visible! Gerald could see the transformation before his eyes and was so pleased that his home was secure once again. Thanks to Master Dry, Gerald’s home is sitting on solid ground!
