Woodstock Homeowner Fixes Stoop & Driveway With PolyLevel
As water leakage began seeping in from the cinderblock walls of our client’s unfinished basement, it began to cause not only a foul smell, but also created a lack of usable space. Additionally, the presence of moisture created the atmosphere for mold and mildew growth, as well as wood rot and the potential for structural damage, which could cause a variety of health problems – both for our clients and their home. The home was built on a sloping elevation in such a way that water naturally pooled around the basement foundation, and the resulting water influx prompted our client to call AquaGuard and have one of our system design specialists come out to assess the situation.

On the contrary, during periods of heavy rain, the soil becomes saturated and will expanding or even wash away. In this case, the soil underneath the deck washed away, due to heavy rains. With little to stabilize the structure, a section of the deck began sagging.
