These homeowners in Berkley, Michigan wanted to add a second story onto their home, but had to halt renovations after noticing issues with their foundation. Their floors were sagging and thought one corner might be sinking. 

When inspecting the crawl space, project manager David Kingsley found many rotting posts in bad shape, causing the settlement. If they were to add a second story, the foundation would need the ability to withstand the weight. 

That's why Jon Lont and his crew installed SmartJack Crawl Space Support Posts. These lift, level, and stabilize the crawl space. With a sturdy concrete base, there's no need to worry about further sinking. The strong galvanized steel is long-lasting and resistant to water, pests, or mold.

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

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 wall repair - to fix cracks, correct bowing or tilting walls, and add reliable support to keep your foundation walls stable.

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.

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 Berkley, MI
Waterguard Helps Homeowners in Berkley, MI Combat Moisture Damage in The Home

A homeowner in Berkley, MI with a determination to provide quality living spaces, found themselves facing two significant issues in their property. A 15-foot-long horizontal crack in the basement wall was causing structural concerns, and moisture infiltration was threatening the integrity of the basement. As a homeowner, they sought a solution not only to preserve the value of the property but also to ensure the comfort and safety of their future tenants. This will explore how these homeowners problems were resolved through the implementation of the WaterGuard system, a simple and effective solution.


The first challenge that these homeowners confronted was the daunting 15-foot-long horizontal crack in the basement wall. This crack raised concerns about the structural integrity of the house and potential water damage. Additionally, moisture was seeping into the basement, making it an unsuitable living environment. These issues had to be addressed comprehensively before the property could be rented out to tenants.


The Solution - WaterGuard:


To solve these problems, the homeowner turned to us, professionals who could solve their problem with the WaterGuard system, a proven solution designed to address basement moisture. The WaterGuard system consists of a specially designed drainage channel that is installed along the perimeter of the basement, below the floor. It collects water seepage and directs it away from the basement, preventing moisture buildup and potential damage.


1. Moisture Mitigation:

 WaterGuard tackles the moisture problem by collecting water before it can infiltrate the basement space. Its unique design ensures that water is channeled away from the foundation, eliminating the dampness that had previously plagued the homeowners basement. With a dry basement, tenants can enjoy a comfortable and mold-free environment. The WaterGuard system not only keeps the basement dry but also addresses the structural concern posed by the 15-foot-long horizontal crack. By preventing water intrusion, WaterGuard helps protect the basement walls from further damage, ensuring the longevity of the property.


Once the WaterGuard system was in place, the homeowners witnessed a significant improvement in the basement environment. Moisture problems were eliminated, and the horizontal crack ceased to be a threat to the structural integrity of the house. With a dry and secure basement, The homeowners property was ready for rental.


Homeowner with Sill Plate Issues has SmartJack Installed to Restore Structural Integrity

A homeowner in Berkley, MI  was having an issue with the sill plate in their crawl space. Over time, settling and shifting of the foundation had caused the sill plate to rot and become damaged, which in turn was causing the floor to become increasingly uneven. This was becoming a major concern for the homeowner, who feared that their home was becoming unstable. A friend who recently had basement waterproofing done by us recommended HomeSpec BasementFix as the best contractor for the job. 

We sent one of our Project Managers, with experience in crawl space repair, to help explain why this was happening to the homeowner and propose a solution. After completing the detailed inspection, our Project Manager recommended installing the SmartJack Support System in the homeowner's crawl space. The SmartJack Support System is known for its ability to correct settling and sagging issues and provide a strong, stable support structure for the floor, thereby solving this homeowner's uneven floor problems.

Once a date had been chosen for the crawl space repair, our team got right to work on the project. First, they began by assessing the crawl space to determine the best placement for the SmartJack supports. Then, they set to work on installing the adjustable steel support jacks, making sure they were properly aligned and securely in place. The SmartJack Support System was then adjusted to the perfect level of support for this homeowner's sill plate. This resulted in a stable and secure support structure that fixed their settling and sagging issues. 

The homeowner was more than satisfied with the end result and couldn't believe the transformation in their home. They felt much safer knowing their floor was now even and stable and could finally begin working on the bathroom remodeling project they had been waiting for. Our team at HomeSpec BasementFix put in the extra care and attention to detail to ensure the homeowner was completely satisfied with our solution.

Berkley, Mi Crawl Space Encapsulation and Crawl Space Insulation


Animal noises are a less than pleasant surprise to hear from underneath your house. That's a truth which a new homeowner in Berkley, Mi discovered very quickly. They had just bought their home in February. A lovely home that was built upon an existing foundation, however, they soon began noticing ominous animal noises near, or more specifically, below their sliding glass doors. They weren't sure exactly what to do, but decided a home inspection may help shed some light on the situation and reached out to HomeSpec on a recommendation from a neighbor.              


Jesse Frailey was the representative sent out to investigate matters. They discovered that there was a small crawl space entrance there that was covered up by the last builder. One detailed search later, Jesse was able to evict the surprise raccoon neighbor the moment they gained access to the crawl space. Investigating the condition of the crawl space revealed less than ideal conditions which could prove very inviting to more uninvited guests in the future, including water pooling, light vegetation, and a general mess of debris. It was time to handle this surprise crawl space once and for all. Jesse recommended having the space properly cleaned, encapsulated and insulated.                                                                                       

Our crew began work soon after, quickly starting with the debris removal to allow proper cleaning and a clear workspace for the rest of the project. The crawl space would be encapsulated using our CleanSpace system, a multi-layered anti-microbial lining proven to be tear and puncture proof, providing a permanent separation from the dirt ground and preventing further issues of vegetation and rot. Finally, the SilverGlo crawl space wall insulation was installed. With its radiant barrier helping warm up the home in the colder seasons via a polystyrene graphite-infused material designed to be 24% more energy efficient, the homeowners would find themselves not only future proofing, but also saving themselves money in the long run with energy bills as well.       


The homeowners were ecstatic to no longer have to worry about an animal problem, or any future issues with their crawl space as well by efficiently waterproofing with encapsulation. Not only that, but the idea that they could save money on energy bills with the insulation system would serve as a great bonus as they saved for their planned vacation coming up!
