Our Carbon Fiber Strips are reinforcement that extends the full height of a cracked or bowed foundation wall. The installation of these do not require any digging outside the home's foundation!
This homeowner noticed that she was getting moisture through her basement walls and wanted to get it taken care of as soon as she could. ITG knew that our BrightWall System would help with that and direct any water coming through the wall directly to her TripleSafe.
When you have to continue repairing the same issue every six months like these homeowners did, you know you have a serious issue. ITG went out and discovered that their foundation was pushing in causing the foundation cracks to keep happening, even after they had them fixed. We installed our Push Pier system. This system will permanently stabilize your home's foundation.
The Homeowners of this Mechanicsburg, PA home were worried about the integrity of their home due to some bowed walls in the basement. They had large cracks in the walls and inward bowing walls. They called I'm The Guy Basement Systems for help with this scary situation.
Our Systems Design Specialist, Steve Rehrer, wasted no time arriving to the home to diagnose the problem and find the best, most permanent solution for the bowed walls. He identified that our CarbonArmor & ArmorLock system was the perfect fix to this nightmare. With the plans now in place, ITG's crew arrived on scene to get to work.
CarbonArmor & ArmorLock uses fiber-reinforced polymers which are ten times stronger than steel, yet flexible enough to form tight against the walls of the basement. This is a non invasive way to immediately stabilize your foundation walls and protect against any further inward. The homeowners are estatic about the system now in place and have "peace of mind" knowing their foundation is now secure.
This crawlspace was dark, damp and moldy. Unfortunately, if this problem wasn't taken care of soon, it could have started affecting this home! We installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier, as well as SilverGlo wall insulation and zapped the mold with Mold-X. These homeowners can now rest easy when it comes to their crawlspace!
The basement walls of this Columbia, PA home were bowing in to the point of cracking the cinder block. The owners of the home needed a solution to give them peace of mind by not only stopping the movement of the wall, but by preventing any movement in the foundation walls in the future. They decided to give I'm The Guy Basement Systems a call to figure out the best solution for their problem.
Our System Design Specialist, Steve Rehrer, came to the home to quickly assess the situation. He concluded that the walls would need the PowerBrace System and Wall Anchors. With design in hand, the crew arrived at the home to begin the installation.
PowerBraces are Zinc-plated steel beams that were custom-fit to the walls of the home. They are secured tight against the walls with brackets that are anchored to the basement floors and floor joists. This system is designed to be tightened over time, potentially reversing wall failure without any invasive drilling or digging on the property.
The homeowners were thrilled that the foundation of their home had been stabilized and they could now rest easy knowing I'm The Guy Basement Systems solved their problem.
The water issue in this garage was a large concern for these homeowners. They were looking for a company that was going to fix this permanently and correctly. We installed a SuperSump, WaterGuard and CleanSpace to take care of the water issue.
This homeowner knew exactly what he wanted when he called ITG, he wanted a his foundation crack repaired. We went out and did just that. We repaired the crack and brightened up the area with some BrightWall paneling.
These homeowners wanted to put a home office in their basement, but they knew the water issue needed to be taken care of first. They called ITG and we installed our SuperSump and WaterGuard Systems to take care of their issues. Also, to brighten up their new office area, we installed our BrightWall for them as well.
This Reading home had substantial water intrusion at the bottom of their basement wall. So much, in fact, that the homeowner was using towels to control the spread of the water. They needed a solution to get the rid of the water once and for all. A call to ITG Basement Systems was all it took to clean up this unsightly problem.
Steve Rehrer, our local Design Specialist, quickly came out to assess the situation. He determined that the basement would need our WaterGuard waterproofing system, our TrenchDrain, and our Super Sump. With the plan mapped out, Aaron & his crew arrived at the home to begin the project.
Our WaterGuard system was installed at the base of the wall, channeling water to the SuperSump. The sump pump is used to keep the basement dry.
This homeowner had a basement water issue. ITG went out, evaluated his situation and discovered that our system would be perfect for his problem! We stopped the water from entering his basement for good.
When water enters through a doorway or stairways, a normal drainage system cannot address this problem. In order to correct this issue, we installed a TrenchDrain to intercept this specific water issue.
These homeowners just recently purchased this home, and quickly noticed this water issue. They called ITG as soon as they noticed, and we went out to inspect it. We knew that our TripleSafe System and WaterGuard Systems would be the perfect solution to their issue.
The home owners of this property in Macungie were experiencing some draftiness in the crawlspace of their newly purchased home. They had us out to another property so were familiar with ITG, and knew right away to give us a call. The crawlspace was one of the things they wanted to have corrected and checked off their list.
ITG sent out Systems Design Specialist, Brian Long to the property to take a look at the crawlspace. After looking over the property he came up with a game plan that would solve this issue. Brian discussed the plans and his design to the home owners, and they felt like it was the way to go. He felt like the crawlspace needed Cleanspace to separate the home from the ground. We would also remove the debris and replace the insulation. Brian arranged a date on the calendar and the project was set in to motion.
ITG sent out the production crew to start the job. They had everything needed to complete the project as expected. The Cleanspace is a 20 millimeter thick heavy duty liner, much like a pool liner. It is extremely durable yet flexible that allows it to form to the walls and ground, yet resistant to tears. The Cleanspace will brighten up any space and has a antimicrobial additive molded into the material. The home owners are very pleased with the upgrade to the new home and are ready to move on to their next project!
The homeowner of this residence in Mountain Top, PA had a water problem for years in their basement. They had a typical sump pump installed that just could never keep up with the water intrusion. After finding a coupon for ITG in the local paper, they gave us a call.
ITG sent Systems Design Specialist, Steve Rehrer, to access and diagnose the source of this issue. After closely evaluating the foundation floors and walls of the home, Steve concluded that replacing their traditional pump with our patented TripleSafe Sump Pump System was the answer to their problem. Steve drew up the job details and sent them over to the team to get started.
The crew arrived on scene ready to get this issue taken care of for the homeowners. We installed the TripleSafe system, which will keep the basement dry with triple protection. The TripleSafe has the main pump, a Zoeller M-53, which does most of the work. It is reliable, and runs smooth and quietly to channel water out. There is also the Zoeller M-98, which is in place to work together with the main pump. It will kick in if pump 1 was to ever fail or if it cannot keep up with the amount of water. Together this power house system can pump out up to 6200 gallons of water per hour out of a basement! Then pump 3 is the Battery back up pumping system. It is designed to automatically start up if there is ever a power outage. With this 3 pump system, all in 1, you can always feel secure about your home being kept dry and protected. The homeowners could not have been more thrilled to have this layer of protection for their home for many years to come.
These homeowners had a horrible water problem. Water flooded their basement 4 times in a 2 to 3 month span! They needed to get this issue resolved as soon as possible. They called ITG and we attacked and solved their water and mold issue.
The owners of this home in Dallas, PA were growing concerned with the integrity of the foundation in their sunroom. The floor and wall were starting to separate and pull away from each other and they knew it was only going to get worse over time. The homeowners had used ITG before on other projects and knew we could handle the job, so they gave us a call.
We sent Systems Design Specialist, Steve Rehrer, out to investigate the problem for them. After carefully looking over the foundation from the inside and outside, Steve determined that 4 slab piers was the solution to this settlement issue. Steve drew up the job details and got them over to the production department. With job orders in hand, ITG sent their piering crew out to start the project.
The Patented Slab Pier System is the best way to repair and secure your concrete floor slabs. They are hydraulically driven through a heavy duty slab bracket to reach load bearing soil. It is designed to potentially lift the slab and non load bearing walls that may have settled along with the slab. This will stabilize and permanently protect the foundation against any further settlement. The homeowners were more than thrilled to have their sunroom back to normal and able to be enjoyed for years to come.
