Five Tips to Protect Your Foundation


Basement Waterproofing reviews in Sheridan

    We had a huge labor intensive job. Our house was built in 1932, so the head room in the basement was 6 feet below the duct work. The water table is very high and the basement would get 1-2 inches of water with heavy rain. I had researched this type of foundation for many years and started to do the excavation myself.  Working Monday through Friday and raising four children, progress was slow.  When researching and consulting foundation/waterproofing companies, the job was too overwhelming for many. The one company that I felt had a good understanding and knowledge of what I wanted was ARW.  Throughout the quoting phase, I would call or email the owner (Mike Bird) and he was always accommodating to my questions and concerns. The only downside of this whole experience was waiting for them to start on the basement.  They are busy, which is a good thing.  Once I decided to go with ARW, I was put on the schedule in about a month.  This gave me time to completely empty the basement and relocate the water heater and softener outside.  Then, I had to support the furnace from the floor joist so underneath could be excavated. 
    The crew was very respectful towards my family and animals.  My dogs loved having them around and would hang out in the basement with them.  My kids enjoyed their company and would want to help.
    We had ARW excavate the entire basement about 2 feet in depth. This was done with 5 gallon buckets, 2 at a time up the basement stairs and out to a dumpster.  At the end of the day, any mess that was made in or outside the house was cleaned up. During the excavation, they removed a cinder block wall, replaced two steel support columns and dug the sump and sewage basin pits. Next, they installed the first interior drainage system and laid 2-3 inches of pea gravel leveled over the basement.  A vapor barrier was installed over the entire basement floor.  Next, it was time to set up the concrete. Concrete was pumped in at a depth of 4 inches and leveled and smoothed.  After a week of concrete curing time, a mason came in and built a pony wall 2 cinder blocks high and 4 inches from the foundation wall. This is to ensure the stability of the foundation wall and keep the undisturbed dirt in place.  After the block was set, a waterproofing rubber coat was applied to the backside of the block as an extra safe guard. Then, another drainage system was placed behind the pony wall and the foundation which runs to the sump pit. This was then filled with more pea gravel and capped with vapor barrier and concrete.  This type of foundation is called a Michigan ledge due to the popularity of this in Michigan.
    Overall, we are very pleased with their work and would recommend ARW to friends and family.  We enjoyed their company and interacting with the crew.  The crew was very knowledgeable, polite and kept a positive attitude.  This job was brutal and thank them very much for not turning away. 
    Thanks again guys!!  Great work!!

    We contacted the company for an estimate.  We met with their representative a few days later.  The representative was knowledgeable and went over what the project would entail.  There was not any high pressure to use their company.  Later that we week we decided to proceed with the them.  We agreed upon a start date.  We were pleased that the representative that we had met with accompanied the work crew on the start day and reviewed with us and the crew what would be done.  The crew was friendly and hard working.  The project was completed in the anticipated three day time frame.  At the completion of the project all debris was cleaned up inside and outside.

    While it has been less than a month since the work was completed, we have been impressed with the total project and the manner it was accomplished.

    Unfortunately,  we were unable to have the service performed at this time but do plan on calling them in the future when the tome is right.
