Foundation Wall Repair

A client had contacted us about repairing their foundation wall, being that it was at the end of winter and spring around the corner, we knew that we had to be quick with our time. Our timeline follow these steps:
-Since the house did not have weeping tile, we repaired the concrete wall.
-All the excavation was done by hand, the soil dug out in 1 foot layers. Excavation by hand minimizes any property damage.
-When excavation exceeds 1.2 meters or if soil conditions require it, we use shoring.
-After excavation, wall must be cleaned with scrapers and brushes.
-Wall is chipped, caulked, grouted and damp proofed, using all recycled materials.
-(Foundation wrap may be required if needed)
-Wrap and weeping tile are installed once wall dries.
-During the inclement weather, soil was covered to prevent from getting wet or frozen.
-Washed rock is used to filter water entering the weeping tile system.
-At the end, the work area gets backfilled
The homeowners were impressed by the quality of service completed.
