Blair R. was disappointed to find a major water issue in the crawl space of the barn on her property. An HVAC leak caused unwanted water in the crawl space. Blair wanted to make sure that the water was not going to lead to mold or a serious structural issue. The water in Blair’s crawl space was not the only problem. There was also building materials like plywood and cinder blocks that would get in the way of work that needed to be done. She decided to contact Master Dry Foundation and Waterproofing Specialists and an appointment was set with specialist Jake Smith.
Much to Blair’s relief, Jake told her that they would be able to remove all of the debris and carry out the proper repairs. The major components of the crawl space repair included installation of drainage matting to collect water in the soil and a CleanSpace liner to seal the crawl space and prevent moisture damage. Finally, a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to help remove moisture from the crawl space air and keep mold away!
Blair feels confident that the crawl space encapsulation system installed by the experts at Master Dry will not only help keep her Sevierville, TN crawl space dry, it will also help maintain the structural integrity of her barn for many years to come!
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!
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!
