    Nobody else we talked to had a system that we liked like your company. Keith really knew his products and we felt he had our best interests in mind. He didn't try to oversell anything.

    Lastly I wanted to mention in August I had an emergency service for repair of a prior installed sump pump. Blake was dispatched to assess and repair. Blake was so very professional and informative with his great work and quick response. He needs to be recognized for very good service. Devin oversaw my concrete leveling work, was professional and seem to really enjoy the coordination of the project and precision executed to resolve my homes issues. I have chosen your firm because of the excellent customer service, project follow through and most of all everyone being very respectful with the customer. Most importantly the firm kept its word.

    Sump Pump & French Drain System Installed in Carleton, MI

    This homeowner was dealing with water pooling around his home and seeping into his basement, causing water damage, so he called HomeSpec to make it better.

    Our team of experts decided that a interior French drain system with a sump pump would be the best solution. The drain will collect the water coming in and funnel it to the sump pump, which will then expel the water away from the home.

    Our sump pump system is a powerful force with two pumps and a battery backup pump in case of power loss. The pumps can discharge thousands of gallons of water every hour, keeping the home safe and dry!

    "I'm so tired of cleaning up a wet basement. Help."

    That's what Scott F. in Royal Oak, Michigan said when he contacted HomeSpec. Water had been seeping into his basement whenever it rained and he needed a long-term repair – so that's what we gave him. 

    Foreman Blake Dushefski and his crew installed a WaterGuard Drainage System, also referred to as a French Drain. This was connected to a TripleSafe Sump Pump which can pump out 2,000+ gallons of water per hour. This system installs below the floor around the perimeter of the basement to gather any water coming into the basement, then deposits it into the sump pump to be directed away from the home. This is the most efficient way to waterproof a basement from the interior. 

    Scott was so excited to have a dry basement for the first time ever – and the system even held up against the record rainfall and flooding that occurred recently, which made him very happy.

    Finished Wall Restoration System Installed to Waterproof Keego Harbor, MI 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! 

  • Ann Arbor, MI Sump Pump Installation

    Ann Arbor, MI Sump Pump Installation

    This Ann Arbor, Michigan homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he was dealing with water issues in his basement and wanted to install a new sump pump to replace the old outdated one. 

    Project manager Erik Nielsen found signs of water intrusion around the edges of the basement, where the floor and the wall meet. This is a very common place for water to seep into a basement. To resolve this issue, he suggested installing a French drain as well as the sump pump. So foreman Blake Dushefski and his crew installed a WaterGuard Perimeter Drainage System connected to a brand new TripleSafe Sump Pump. This system will pump water away from the foundation to prevent water leakage (and even flooding).
