    In 2017 HomeSpec did work on our basement and addressed some major issues for us. John was amazing and didn't try to oversell me at the time- so I chose HomeSpec. This year with all the heavy rain, some of the areas are beginning to leak again. Travis Dutch just came out and looked at everything, share with me more areas of concern he had and is helping to take care of everything. I will not let any other company work on our basement- HomeSpec is the best!

    Travis came to the house on time. Explained the work he would be performing, and the approximate time it would take. He was very courteous, and respectful, and he showed to be very proud of his job. His professionalism really showed during the time he was at my house. Thanks Travis for a job well done, and for taking the time in answering every question I asked on the project, in a very professional and polite way.

    Customer Testimonial

              "With all the recent hard and lengthy rains, we had water entering from rod holes in our poured concrete foundation. Our basement has been very dry for the many years that we have lived in our home but these recent rains convince me to get a professional to properly correct the situation. With a simple phone call, HomeSpec gave me a estimate based on the number of rod holes needing repair which was very reasonable and competitive. They showed up to do the work today (just a few days after my phone estimate, I had been waiting on another company for over a month). Travis, the HomeSpec person who did the work was very thorough and accommodating to my wishes. He did not rush through the job as most contractors do just to move on to their next appointment. I feel confident that my basement will be dry once again. I have already had HomeSpec estimate me another project that I have been putting off for quite some time. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a company that uses good people and does good work."

    Foundation Sinking & Crawl Space Walls Bowing/Cracked in Ann Arbor, MI

    The foundation of this home in Ann Arbor, Michigan was in pretty bad shape – the crawl space walls were cracked, bowing and moving – allowing moisture into the crawl space. The foundation was also settling and sinking into the soil causing many of these issues. 

    Foundation & pier expert Ryan Loop took on this challenge with his experienced crew. They pushed the foundation walls back into place and braced them with straps. Then they installed Helical Piers below the foundation to stop the sinking and stabilize the foundation. These piers anchor deep into stronger soils to hold the foundation in place and stop it from moving. While the exterior walls were exposed, the crew waterproofed them. 

    This home is no longer "on the move" and these homeowners no longer need to worry!

    Wet Basement Waterproofed With Drainage System in Morenci, MI

    Spring is by far the worst time for basements and below-grade spaces. First the snow melts at the end of winter and the soil around foundations becomes waterlogged, and then it rains for several months straight. This means major seepage in our basements, or worse - flooding. This homeowner in Morenci, Michigan reached out to HomeSpec for this very reason.

    The homeowner would find puddles in her basement all throughout the year, but it was worst in the spring. The water was seeping in at the joint where the floor and the wall meet, which is very common since there is a gap there. One year, her basement even flooded. As she got older, this became more stressful to deal with and she needed a permanent solution. That's where HomeSpec comes in.

    Our team installed an interior drainage system to waterproof the basement. This system collects the water before it can leak in, and deposits it into the sump pump. The sump pump can then direct the water up and away from the home to prevent water intrusion. 

    The homeowner was happy to report that even after a rainy spring, she found no leaks in her basement!
