Wall Cracks And Sloping Floors in Keasby, New Jersey

A customer with a 3-family rental property in Keasby, New Jersey, contacted Meridian Foundation Repair and Waterproofing to diagnose wall cracks and sloping floors in the basement of their home. An inspection was performed by Bob Peters revealing major step cracking on the left side and right rear side of the home. The home is 52′ long by 21′ wide with only 4′ 10″ of clearance between the neighboring properties.

Approach

The scope of the proposal submitted was to install helical piers along all 21′ of the rear wall, and 25′ of the left side wall which would require 11 helical piers. In addition, we proposed to remove and replaced the rear concrete steps and install a new 6’x21’ concrete slab and 25’ concrete walkway.

Once Meridian diagnosed the problems, we contracted with a structural engineer to design the necessary repairs. Meridian scheduled the necessary inspection with the engineer, reviewed the plans before final print, submitted the drawings with the necessary permit to the township and attended all necessary inspections. The professional engineer plan concurred with the findings of Meridian.

In order to determine the soil type and quality, Meridian installed a test pier to relay the data back to the structural engineer. The test pier was necessary to determine and confirm the type of pier to be used, depth and number of piers. This approach saved the customer about $1,000.00 rather than having a geological boring completed. This test pier was able to be utilized as part of the foundation repair.

Due to limited access, Meridian used hand-operated helical drive equipment to install the necessary piers. All work was completed in 7 working days, right down to final restoration.

Resolution

The foundation is permanently stabilized, all cracks above and below grade are filled with flexible cement, new steps and slabs were poured, and the customer gladly gave Meridian a 5-Star Review.

Object Leaks

Plumbing, windows, and other objects that are leaking can be fixed in combination with waterproofing and sealing. Object leak repairs tend to be a simple solution for wet basements.
