Moisture Causes Moldy, Rotting Crawl Space Support in Ann Arbor, MI Moisture Causes Moldy, Rotting Crawl Space Support in Ann Arbor, MI

These Ann Arbor, Michigan homeowners purchased a home with many crawl space and foundation issues, so they called HomeSpec to take care of everything! A general inspection found that there was mold in the crawl space due to moisture, and the joists/band board were rotting badly as a result. 

On top of that, one corner of the home was sinking, also know as settling, into the soil and pulling apart from the rest of the home – resulting in severe cracking in the crawl space and outside the home. 

HomeSpec combatted the sinking issue by installing Helical Piers. These anchor deep into stronger soils and literally hold the home up, preventing the structure from sinking any further and even lifting it back to its original position. 

The rotting, moldy joists in the crawl space were replaced and sistered to make sure the floors above won't sag and the support won't give way. The cracks in the crawl space block walls were also sealed to prevent moisture from seeping in. The support in the crawl space is crucial to the home, which is why it's important to keep crawl spaces dry or else moisture will wreak havoc!!

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because he was dealing with water issues in his basement and wanted to install a new sump pump to replace the old outdated one.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).

Job Stories From Ann Arbor, MI
Ann Arbor, Michigan Basement Crack Repair Proposal

This Ann Arbor, Mi couple found themselves in need of a basement crack repair contractor, when unattended vertical cracks along their walls were allowing increasing amounts of water in with the rainfall. A family member of theirs would refer them to HomeSpec because of his satisfaction with our previous Basement Waterproofing done. This would put the homeowners in touch with project manager Dave, who would conduct a thorough inspection throughout the house and problem areas alike, to identify the cause, best solution set, and any other possible concerns.                                           

 

David began his proposal by addressing the original reason for his visit, the cracks. The cracks could be addressed with a high-pressure urethane crack injection which seals the crack and prevents water from leaking through. The process is quick, easy, and permanent. However, it was also recommended to install a carbon fiber power grid along slits that would be dug into the cracks to prevent them from spreading more with the wall’s natural movement. Dave also noted that part of the reason for the water damage was that the sump pump wasn't properly installed, so it was best to have it reinstalled properly, have its plexiglass sump cover resealed and extend the discharge farther away from the house to ensure water would be less likely to seep in through walls and windows.                                     

 

The couple was left satisfied, and happy to have had Dave inspect things properly and address issues before they became potential problems, agreeing to having the work done in October. The best part being, since they were referred using our referral program, they would get a discount on the work, and their family member would receive a $50 bonus reward as well. Good reliable work done, money saved, and a bonus incentive all for a happy client.                             

 

Work Still To Be Done 10/22

Ann Arbor, Mi Residents Think They Need Basement Waterproofing but Crawl Space Encapsulation Was The Answer

A family in Ann Arbor, Mi had been starting to smell what they believed to be dampness or mildew spreading through their 1942 home. They believed the smell was likely a result of unseen wet basement problems but weren't entirely certain where water could be leaking into the basement from. Nevertheless, they felt a basement waterproofing specialist near Ann Arbor should be contact, especially since they wanted to convert the basement to a home office down the line as well.

                             

Project Manager Chris met with the family, and understood their concerns, beginning an inspection process that turned out to have surprising results. Chris couldn't find any indication of water damage, or leakage in the basement, but the smell the family mentioned was readily apparent. The actual cause turned out to be the crawl space below, unkept for many years with a bit of evident standing water. Chris explained his findings to the family and proposed having the crawl space cleaned out and encapsulated properly to address the situation.                    

          

Our crew began by removing the mess of debris that spread sporadically throughout the crawl space and draining the standing water immediately, there wasn't a lot of room to work with, but our team persevered. The main task here was the installation of the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system; a 20 mil-thick-liner manufactured in 7 layers consisting of a mix of both low- and high-density polyethylene blends for both durability and flexibility. With its antimicrobial additive woven into the material, it ensures no new mold growth and less pests.          

                     

The homeowner was happy to have contacted HomeSpec for an expert opinion, rather than getting unnecessary basement work done, which could've cost them quite a bit before addressing the actual problem.

Multiple Vertical Cracks in Basement Wall Repaired in Ann Arbor, Mi

The Ann Arbor, Mi family found not one, but four vertical cracks in their basement's concrete walls that needed to be repaired. A coworker of theirs referred them to HomeSpec Basement fix as a specialist in basement crack repair and basement waterproofing near Ann Arbor. After initial contact, we sent our representative, Erik, to meet with the family and conduct an inspection of the problem at hand. These vertical cracks were a bit more damaging than originally inspected, but still easily handleable by our crew. We had our crew fill them with a high-pressure urethane crack injection (This seals the crack and prevents water from leaking through. The process is quick, easy, and permanent) to fill out the cracks before installing fiber power grids along dug out slants through the cracks to prevent any future spreading of the cracks from the wall’s natural movement over time. The entire process was quick, thorough, and provided a long-lasting solution.

Ann Arbor, Property Management Company Has Leaking Rod Holes Fixed

A property management company in Ann Arbor, Mi recently bought a new property to rent out. However, once the previous owners had removed their furnishings, rod holes became clearly visible, as well as stains running down the wall showing signs of past water leaks. Knowing how this could affect their property value, they recalled previously having basement crack repair work done by HomeSpec on a different property.
Remembering the positive experience with the basement waterproofing company, they had prior, they asked to meet with representative Brian by name. Brian was delighted to meet with them again and sat down to discuss what their concerns were with this new property. After a thorough inspection to ensure no more problems were hiding just out of sight, Brian outlined the steps that would be taken towards resolving the problem at hand.
When the foundation of the basement was originally poured during construction of the home, metal rods were used to hold the forms together until the concrete had cured. At which point the rods were removed, leaving holes to be filled with balls of hydraulic cement. These fillings, however, are prone to wear and tear, and often can lead to leaks during rainy weather over time.
HomeSpec wants to make sure we provide long-lasting, reliable solutions. Our crew began by using a water swelling hydrophobic polyurethane grout made from materials that absorb and repel water, before filling the gaps with Seal-Boss foam as well (a hydrophobic water stop foam injection), and another hydrophobic polyurethane grout to top it off flush against the walls surface. Finally, surface bonding material is smoothly applied to give the whole project a cosmetically appealing finish.
The company was satisfied knowing they retained their value and could rely on HomeSpec as the best company for basement waterproofing, home foundation repair and cracked concrete repair, with outstanding service, and reliability.

Backup Battery Sump Pump Alleviates Homeowner Wet Basement Fears

A family in Ann Arbor Michigan had recently moved into a new home. Their previous home had experienced repeated wet basement problems and water damage due to faulty sump pump situations. The new homeowners wanted to ensure that something like that wouldn’t be an issue in their new home. Noticing the HomeSpec work log left by their sump pump, they realized their new home had previously been worked on by the company. The homeowners decided to reach out to HomeSpec to discuss their upkeep options and discuss their concerns stemming from their previous homeowner experiences.

HomeSpec in turn sent out Keith Brown to sit down with the family and talk over all their concerns. During their discussions, the family revealed that part of the reason for some of their previous basement water problems was whenever power would go out during a heavy storm, the pump would be left nonfunctional.

Keith informed them of the best possible solution to put their worries at ease. That being the UltraSump Battery Backup System. This system would automatically kick in if there was any loss of power, with a small alarm to notify owners that something went wrong in the first place. This powerful battery system can help pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery.

The family’s mind was able to be put to ease after the installation, knowing they now had a solution to all their previous stress. The new pump could outlast other styles many times over, and with the battery backup ready to go in case of emergency, they no longer had to worry about their basement flooding.
