Job Stories From Harford County, MD
Driveway Lifted using PolyLevel in Bel Air, MD

Homeowners contacted DryZone with their concerns about their driveway. It was sinking as much as 4 inches in some areas. The sinking was most evident when you looked at the lip on the edge of the garage entrance and also the contact point with the adjacent walkway to the front door.  

Team DryZone's crew of concrete experts were able to tackle the project in just a few hours. Team DryZone used PolyLevel to lift the sinking slab and then applied NexusPro to all of the joints and cracks which had been caused by the sinking. Now this homeowner is able to use their driveway unhindered. The tripping hazard along the front walkway is also remedied by the driveway being lifted and repaired.

Sinking Porch is Lifted and Restored by DryZone in Havre De Grace, MD

Concrete is a great surface for sidewalks, porches and decks. But slab concrete is prone to sinking when there is settling in the ground beneath it. You may think that this means that you will need to remove the existing concrete and pour a new concrete slab. This is not the case when you work with DryZone. We can inject PolyLevel beneath the existing slab and raise it to its intended level in the matter of mere hours instead of the days or weeks that a new concrete slab would take. This homeowner was able to welcome people into his home with a level entry that he could be proud of.

Water Front Deck Supported with Helical Piers in Havre de Grace

Water front living is best appreciated outdoors. That is exactly what this homeowner wanted. The challenges of living on water front property, such as high water tables and potential flooding, can be overcome with the use of helical piers. This is exactly the solution that Team DryZone utilized for this homeowner along the banks of Pennys Shoal off of the Chesapeake Bay. Helical Piers drive deep into the soil to the stable soil level which can support the weight of this deck. Now this homeowner can enjoy the view off of their back deck in a safe and secure way.

PolyLevel Provides a Safe Home Entrance in Forest Hill, MD

Over the course of time, soil tends to settle and compress. This can dramatically impact concrete slab surfaces such as porches. This porch settled about 2 inches. This settlement caused the pillars holding the roof above the porch to also droop. tearing up the concrete and removing it would have reeked havoc on this home. A skim coat of concrete to level the porch would not have been a solution for the pillars that were dropping along with the porch floor. DryZone using PolyLevel to lift both the concrete slab porch floor AND the porch pillars was the best and most effective solution for this homeowner. You can see the finished product made this homeowner very happy.

This Sinking Porch is Lifted Quickly and Easily with PolyLevel in Aberdeen, MD

This porch was a nagging problem for these homeowners. It was sinking on one side. This concrete porch slab served as the support for the porch covering. This made repouring the concrete a challenging, arduous undertaking. DryZone is thankful that these homeowners reached out to us for help. Instead of the lengthy process of replacing the concrete - one which offered no warranty against future sinking. PolyLevel was a solution that brought much relief to these homeowners. Not only was it repaired in a fraction of a day, but PolyLevel comes with a 5 year warranty to soothe concerns about future settling.

The DryZone crew arrived and made quick work of this repair. PolyLevel lifted the slab so that it was lelel once more. NexusPro was used to seal the cracks and prevent further water damage. These homeowners were very happy with their choice to lift their concrete and not replace it.

Helical Piers and What They Do

A helical pier is another type of steel pier that can be used to permanently stabilize your home. They're named for their unique design; the first section that is advanced into the ground has one or more helix-shaped blades welded to the shaft, allowing it to be mechanically screwed into the soil. They can be used the bring the home back toward its original position or to stabilize a lighter structure that has settled, such as a deck or stoop. 

For this project, four helical piers were being used in the foundation for an elevator shaft due to test results indicating that the soils were incapable of supporting a foundation with a design bearing pressure of 1000psf. 

This addition to the homeowner's home would be stable for life with the helical piers installed before there is a problem!

"It's Not A Big Deal" Can Turn Into A Bigger Deal Down The Road

Life is crazy at times with careers, family, pets, and house upkeep. Many of us go through the week and all of a sudden it's the weekend again! Time goes by fast and things change consistently. Sometimes, as homeowners a little crack turns into "it's not a big deal". The problem is, through our busy lives, we start to notice these little cracks less until they become larger cracks and "how long has that been there?" cracks. 

And now the "it's not a big deal" becomes "this might be a big deal".

After time, your home is slowly settling more, being affected more and more from weather and humidity. Sometimes, these things we can't control slowly affect our homes starting with small cracks, the start of sagging or bowing, or even sinking of porches or stairs. The picture below shows an example of a tiny gap that has been created over time. This small space on the porch is actually created by a BIG problem in the crawlspace!

For this home in Fallston, MD,  helical piers were needed to stabilize and bring the home back to its original position. The piers' round shaft design has a high resistance to bending and is made of galvanized steel, which will not rust. These piers reach greater depths than other options to support your home, which means they extend past troubled soils. With helical piers, you can permanently stabilize your home, regardless of the weight of the structure. 

So if you have any concerns about your "it's not a big deal" foundation cracks or gaps, give us a call to schedule your free estimate. If you need a little support help, we can stabilize it before it becomes a big deal! 

 

Adding Support in Bel Air, MD

Sometimes, you don't know how big of a problem you have until DryZone comes to inspect your home! With an outside inspection, we found signs of mortar cracking on the chimney itself. This home's chimney was adding weight to the floor in the living room with no support in the basement below. This issue, if left unresolved, would be a more expensive problem later on.

We installed 2 SmartJackXTs and an 8 foot supplemental beam to distribute the weight evenly on the rest of the home. With these SmartJacks and the supplemental beam, this homeowner has no need to worry about their foundation of their home!
