This homeowner contacted us because her poured concrete walls were cracked and leaking water into her basement.
Our crew solved her problem by first repairing the cracks with our polyurethane sealant. Then we covered the walls with our CleanSpace vapor barrier to protect against moisture. Finally, we installed an interior drainage system around the perimeter to collect the water and drain it away from the foundation.
The homeowner was later able to finish her basement, and easily install carpet and drywall over the system!
Elizabeth in Westland, Michigan contacted HomeSpec after the summer's heavy rains and bad storms left her with a wet basement. The biggest problem? Her basement was finished and water was seeping in through the walls, ruining the carpet and wood flooring.
Upon inspection, project manager David Covert discovered that several cracks were the culprits of the leaking. Since Elizabeth had to rip out all of the water damaged flooring, David suggested installing a much better, waterproof flooring option.
Crack technician Domonique Price filled and sealed all of the leaking cracks in the foundation walls with a high pressure urethane injection to stop the water intrusion. Then Foreman Jon Lont installed our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring in a light gray color to match the walls.
Being made from inorganic materials, this faux-wood flooring option is great for homeowners who want to beautifully finish their basement but also protect it from water damage in the long term. Elizabeth will not have to waste time or money ripping out musty carpet or wet wood flooring ever again, and she's happy with her choice!
Pretty much everyone with a basement deals with foundation wall cracks. Some can be left alone, some leak and some indicate larger foundation issues. This large vertical crack in a Westland, Michigan basement would leak after heavy rain and only got larger as time went on. The homeowner finally wanted it repaired permanently and professionally, so she called HomeSpec BasementFix.
Our crack technician Domonique Price filled the crack with a high-pressure urethane injection. This seals the crack and prevents water from leaking through. The process is quick, easy and permanent.
The homeowner was happy that the repair held up against the summer's heavy rains, and now has a dry basement for the first time in a long time!
Ken H. in Farmington Hills, Michigan called HomeSpec needing a permanent repair for his wet basement woes. Water would seep in after rain, then Ken would grab the towels and the floor fans to dry up the puddles every time. Him and his wife just had a baby, so dealing with a leaking basement was the last thing they wanted to do. Ken was finally ready to retire the floor fans, so Project Manager Josh McKeith developed a custom repair plan.
Foreman Jon Davis and his crew got to work waterproofing the basement. They installed a WaterGuard Below Floor Drain around the perimeter of the basement (also known as a French Drain), and connected it to a TripleSafe Sump Pump. Crack Technician Domonique Price sealed and waterproofed the cracks in the foundation walls.
Ken and his wife can now enjoy their time as new parents without having to worry about pesky water seeping into their dry basement!
This Michigan home had a very unique feature - a long window well along one entire side of their basement with a timber retaining wall. It was a beautiful feature and allowed for a large window in the basement bedroom that let in tons of natural light. But it came with a big problem: WATER.
There was a high amount of water under the home and water would pool in the window well especially after heavy rain, so water was seeping into the basement. There was no interior drainage system to prevent this and only one sump pump on the other side of the large basement. There was also not proper drainage in the window well. These circumstances all led to a big headache for the homeowners and their finished basement.
But our crew promptly solved this issue by installing an interior drainage system along the section of the basement that borders the window well, as well as installing exterior drainage in the window well. We also installed two brand new TripleSafe sump pumps to handle the high levels of water. To finish it off, we installed our Everlast™ Finished Wall Restoration System. These inorganic, mold-resistant wall panels replace the bottom 3 feet of the wall. This prevents the finished basement walls from becoming damaged by water while giving an appealing finished appearance to the room.
This long-lasting solution will keep this finished basement dry and looking great for years to come, and the homeowners are very pleased!
This homeowner was dealing with a cracked and bowing foundation wall, so he called HomeSpec to see what his options for repair were. Bowing walls occur when there's some sort of pressure pushing the wall inwards - usually because of hydrostatic pressure or expansive soils.
To solve this issue, HomeSpec had to excavate the wall and push the wall back into place. Then it was waterproofed from the outside and drainage was installed. On the inside, the PowerBrace Wall Repair System was installed to stabilize the walls and prevent further movement. The cracks were also filled and reinforced with Carbon Fiber Power Grids.
Now the basement wall is secure and dry. The homeowner was SO happy with the results and spoke very highly of the crew that did his repairs!
