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!
Jenny W. from Birmingham, Michigan contacted HomeSpec after finding water leaking into her basement after a bad storm through the floor/wall joint and cracks in the walls.
HomeSpec had a solution for her wet basement woes: a waterproofing system. This includes a WaterGuard Drainage System that installs around the perimeter to collect water before it leaks into the basement. This then deposits water into the TripleSafe Sump Pump (with 3 pumps for triple the protection) which funnels water away from the home.
We also installed our Foamax Basement Wall Panels to hide the unsightly foundation walls, brighten up the space, and drain any water leaks into the drainage system.
The basement's transformation was astounding and Jenny couldn't be any happier with the results!
