    Erik Nielson came out and spoke with me and explained the product and process so thoroughly I felt confident this company would correct the issues I was having with my garage floor. The pricing was more than competitive and the information provided was amazing. Above and beyond to address every question I had. I didnt feel like a dollar sign but like he genuinely cared about providing the best service. And the work completed by the crew of Domonique and Orlando proved I made the right choice.

    Concrete Driveway PolyLeveled & Repaired in Westland, MI

    This homeowner in Westland, Michigan contacted HomeSpec to repair a driveway slab and some garage slabs that were cracked and sinking. 

    Foreman Devin Parker used the PolyLevel method to repair the concrete. The high-density rigid foam is first injected below the slab through smalls holes. As it expands, the slab is lifted and leveled. This material is stable and strong, and environmentally safe. 

    The homeowner was able to use his driveway and garage again that same day, and was happy to find a permanent solution for his concrete issues!

    Owners of Damp, Leaking Basement Need Solution in Saline, MI

    The owners of this Saline, Michigan home were planning on flipping the house, but needed to address the wet basement issues first. The basement is only 4 ft. underground, but still suffered from dampness after rain. Water would seep in through the concrete block walls, especially toward the bottom of the wall.

    The biggest sign of this water damage was the efflorescence on the walls (white powder) which is caused by the loss of lime salt. There was also much discoloration on the floor and walls. The basement needed to be waterproofed before it could be finished, so HomeSpec got to work!

    Foreman Jerry Blevins and his crew installed a WaterGuard French Drain System around the perimeter of the basement, which collects water before it seeps in. Instead, the water is deposited into the brand new TripleSafe Sump Pump which will funnel it far from the home – keeping things dry even during storms.

    The owners can now finish the space, and whatever family ends up in the home later will have peace of mind knowing their basement is dry and healthy!

    Finished Basement Leaks After Heavy Rains in Saline, MI

    Jordan M. in Saline, Michigan contacted HomeSpec because water was leaking from his old egress windows and into his basement after heavy rains. This posed a big problem for Jordan because his basement was fully finished with carpet and all – and the basement served as a living and work space. Jordan needed his leaky windows replaced and the wet carpet ripped out ASAP. 

    HomeSpec was able to replace not only the egress windows, but the old wooden window wells too. We installed a cover over the window well to keep out water and debris as well as proper drainage to prevent water from pooling up and then leaking into the basement. 

    Next, we installed our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring. This is a faux-wood flooring which means if it gets wet, it does NOT have to be torn up and replaced. It's waterproof and mold-resistant, but makes any basement look stylish with the variety of color options. 

    Jordan was thrilled to not only have a dry basement, but also beautiful new flooring!

    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).
