This customer contacted Hughes Construction after getting water coming through the cracks in their foundation.  After further investigation, we concluded that the foundation needed to be excavated, the wall resealed, a new drainage system installed, and the cracks injected.  The section of the wall that needed to be excavated was located within a few feet of the neighbor’s long driveway that ran parallel to the foundation.  The soil next to the driveway sloped so that the water would run into the home owner’s yard and therefore ran into the foundation.  With the tight space we had to use a small excavator to dig down to the footer.  We used our dump trailer to put the excavated soil into because of the tight space and the fact that the smaller excavator we were using would not reach a dump truck. In using the dump trailer we were able to transport the soil to regrade the back yard. We then sealed the outside of the wall with HML 5000, insulated the top 4 feet of the wall, as well as installed a dimple board over the entire wall for drainage.  Once the wall was sealed we installed a new drainage system that was connected to the downspouts.  The homeowner’s back yard had enough slope to it so that we could run the pipe along the footer and back to the back yard.  Instead of backfilling the foundation in compacted lifts, the homeowner elected to fill the entire hole with gravel to improve drainage as well as not having to mow the grass on that side of the house. During the exterior work, we were also prepping and injecting the foundation cracks with structural epoxy from Prime Resins.  A couple of the cracks on the opposite side of the house that we excavated needed to be injected from the outside.  Once the interior and exterior work was done we put down topsoil, seed, and straw on the front and back yards, and power washed the drive ways.
