Crawl Space Encapsulation Prevents Frozen Pipes in Avoca, MI

Crawl Space Encapsulation Prevents Frozen Pipes in Avoca, MI

Before After
Crawl Space Encapsulation Prevents Frozen Pipes in Avoca, MI Crawl Space Encapsulation Prevents Frozen Pipes in Avoca, MI

A huge problem homeowners face in the wintertime is frozen pipes - it's a headache to deal with and happens when there's not proper insulation in the crawl space to keep it warm. 

That's why these Avoca, Michigan homeowners contacted HomeSpec. They were tired of dealing with frozen pipes every winter - they even had TWO heaters installed in their crawl space to mediate the situation! 

Our experts knew exactly what the crawl space needed - encapsulation. This includes sealing the crawl space walls and floor off with a CleanSpace vapor barrier, and sealing the rim joists and any other gaps with the SilverGlo insulation to prevent air and moisture leaks. This separates the crawl space from the outside - keeping it warm, dry, and clean. 

Now the homeowners don't need to depend on heaters in their crawl space to keep it warm (and waste electricity) since the encapsulation gets the job done!

Dependable Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Repair Contractor Serving Avoca

Signs of a wet basement can be found throughout the home, even in the upper levels: musty smells, a decrease in air quality and energy efficiency, peeling or bubbling paint, buckling hardwood floors, and mold or mildew growth.

Crawl spaces that are damaged or improperly constructed can also leave your home vulnerable to moisture damage, high energy bills, and pest infestations. Without adequate structural support, some crawl spaces can even sink and cause shifting floors and walls in the upper levels of your home. HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair addresses and corrects damaged, ill-fitting crawl spaces across Avoca with the following services:

  • Crawl Space Insulation
  • Crawl Space Drainage
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Crawl Space Structural Repair

Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in Avoca

A damaged foundation can’t properly support your home and should be addressed at the first sign of trouble: bowing walls, cracked walls or floors, tilted chimneys, sloping floors, and pooling water, just to name a few. While foundation problems are an unavoidable part of homeownership, we want to make the repair process as stress-free as possible for you. Our team of highly trained foundation repair experts will safely restore the strength of your home’s foundation with our proven effective solutions:

  • Foundation piers - to stabilize your foundation against settlement with minimal disturbance to your home. Comes with a 25-year manufacturer warranty.
  • Foundation wall repair - to fix cracks, correct bowing or tilting walls, and add reliable support to keep your foundation walls stable.
  • Crawl space support posts - using the SmartJack® crawl space support system to provide support for sagging/undersized beams, restore stability, and correct sagging floor joists.

HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair also offers complete concrete repair services that restore and protect concrete inside and outside of your Saint Clair County home, including concrete driveways and sidewalks. Homeowners can benefit from our innovative concrete sealant that permanently bonds with one application to protect against UV rays and moisture for long-lasting protection on new and old concrete. If you have sloping concrete floors in your home, we will restore them with the PolyLevel concrete leveling system, a faster and longer-lasting alternative to mudjacking. PolyLevel cures in as little as 24 hours, adds very little weight as it lifts, and is far less messy than traditional mudjacking, making it ideal to use on interior slabs.

Job Stories From Avoca, MI
Water Seeping into Avoca, MI Basement At Floor/Wall Joint After Heavy Rains

Tim H. in Avoca, Michigan contacted HomeSpec because after heavy rains all weekend – he found puddles of water in his basement. Our inspector Chris Baltovich found that the water was seeping in from the joint where the floor and the wall meet. There is a gap there and this is one of the most common ways water enters basements. 

To solve this problem, HomeSpec simply had to install a discreet below-floor drain around the perimeter of the basement. We connected this to Tim's sump pump – so the drainage system can collect the water and deposit it into the sump pump, which will then direct the water away from the home. 

The sump pump discharge line was extended (and buried) farther away from the home so the water coming out of it wouldn't seep into the soil and leak back into the basement.
