We worked on this project near downtown Columbus where the foundation of this home had been compromised because of the issues with their roofing and gutter system. The home was surrounded by trees the gutters probably hadn’t been cleaned out in over a decade. The gutters were full, the downspouts were clogged, and the during rainstorms, the water would overflow from the gutters and spill over to the ground below. Water would pond up around the foundation of the house and create more pressure. Inside the basement walls started to shift because of the excess water and soil pressure from the overflowing gutters.
Best Choice came in, removed the existing, damaged gutters and replaced them with a new system and leaf guard. We replaced all of the downspouts and clean out the pipes to ensure no leftover leaves would clog the system. We also helped by referring a foundation specialist to the home owner to brace the basement wall to avoid a possible collapse and future issues.
This homeowner was able to fix all their problems and feel comfortable in their home again with the peace of mind that their issues has been resolved.
