Prolonged instances of water damage to walls can become a very unsightly problem, especially with drywall being prone to mold growth when water damaged. The first instance shows a situation where a homeowner wasn't sure of the source, but water was seeping into her basement along her walls, staining and damaging them. The second image however, shows our installed BrightWall system. BrightWall is a fully waterproof solution and creates a vapor barrier on the basement walls to block out water vapor and humidity, ensuring the homeowner won't have to worry about mold growth or rot. BrightWall provides a lively clean look to the space while it also directs water seepage into the perimeter drain. Quite an impressive difference in visual appeal and functionality!

Crawl Space Repair in Canton, MI

A vented crawl space can be a serious issue for your home as a whole. When vented, crawl spaces are damp, making them the perfect place for pests, mold, & mildew. While this might seem like a crawl space problem only, it can quickly affect the rest of your home since most of the air you breathe will pass through the crawl space at some point. An uninsulated and vented crawl space can also lower the energy efficiency of the home thanks to the drafts.

At HomeSpec BasementFix we can help transform your crawl space from a detriment into an asset. We offer a wide range of solutions including:

  • Crawl space encapsulation
  • Crawl space dehumidification
  • Crawl space insulation
  • Crawl space drainage
  • Crawl space support jacks
  • And more

Concrete Leveling Specialists in Canton, MI

Sinking concrete can be a major issue with any concrete sidewalk, driveway, patio, or pool deck. When the soil beneath the concrete washes away, settles, or simply shifts, this leaves voids causing the concrete slab above to sink or shift as a result.

The common solution is to use either mudjacking or slabjacking, but both of these solutions have some issues, most notably the time required to cure. At HomeSpec BasementFix we prefer to use PolyLevel® for our concrete leveling and lifting jobs. With PolyLevel®, polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete slab and fills the voids left behind by the shifting soil. This method takes drastically less time to cure than most traditional solutions and weighs less.

Job Stories From Canton, MI
Homeowner in Canton, MI Couldn't Finish Remodeling Their Basement Until WaterGuard and CleanSpace Were Installed to Fix the Water Leaking Problems

A homeowner in Canton, MI was in the process of remodeling their basement so they could finally have a space where family and friends could hang out, however, as they started to tear down walls and flooring, they noticed cracks in the floors and walls that had previously gone unnoticed. The homeowner knew that they needed to get the cracks fixed before proceeding with the remodeling project. They did some research and found HomeSpec BasementFix, which specialized in basement waterproofing and foundation repair. They contacted us and soon a Project Manager was scheduled to come to their home and assess the situation.

The Project Manager arrived and quickly got to work assessing the basement. He found that some of the cracks were leaking water, which was causing damage to the walls and floors. The Project Manager knew that he needed to act fast to prevent further damage. After a thorough inspection, the Project Manager proposed a solution that involved the installation of the WaterGuard Drainage System, UltraSump Sump Pump and CleanSpace System. The WaterGuard system would be installed around the perimeter of the basement, which would capture any water that seeped through the cracks and direct it to the UltraSump Sump Pump. The CleanSpace System would be installed on the walls and floors to prevent any moisture from getting through.

The homeowner was relieved that there was a solution to their problem and agreed to move forward with the installation. Our crew arrived a few days later and got to work. They started by excavating around the perimeter of the basement to make room for the WaterGuard system. Then, they installed the WaterGuard pipe, which involved placing a special drainage channel along the perimeter of the basement. Next, the crew installed the UltraSump Sump Pump. This involved digging a hole in the basement floor and installing the pump. Finally, they connected the WaterGuard system to the pump, which would direct any water that collected in the drainage channel to the pump. Once the most tedious part of the installation was complete, the crew installed the CleanSpace System on the walls and floors. This involved sealing the walls and floors with a special vapor barrier that would prevent any moisture from getting through.

The crew completed the installation in a day, and the homeowner was happy with the results. They could now proceed with their remodeling project, knowing that their basement was protected from any future water damage.

Mysterious Basement Water Leaks in Canton, Mi Addressed with Drainage System


A familiar story in the area, is that of homeowners finding water getting into their basement but are unsure of the source. That's the exact situation this Canton, Mi homeowner found herself in, as water would pool around the edges of her unfinished poured concrete basement. It was happening frequently enough to heavily damage and stain her walls, too! It was clear if she ever intended to do anything at all with her basement in the future, she'd first need to handle her basement waterproofing needs. She needed to find a basement waterproofing contractor near Canton, Mi, that could help her with a customized solution. To that end, her coworker referred her to HomeSpec Basementfix.                    


In turn, we sent out representative Mark Buhr, to discuss her situation and related needs. Mark conducted a thorough investigation of the property to help determine what solution set would fit this homeowner the best. Due to the nature of the prolonged water damage on the walls and the way the water pooled at the edges, he proposed wall paneling and a proper drainage system to be installed.                                           


 In order to adhere a custom drainage system to the perimeter of the basement, the WaterGuard piping system was selected and installed by our crew. WaterGuard is a French drain designed to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing. This keeps the drainage system out of the "mud zone", where drains can clog. The water would collect and drain into a new discharge leading to an existing basin. While the WaterGuard was being installed, our crew was extra careful to temporarily move the laundry tub and hot water tank to be reinstalled once the job was done. In front of the drainage system, we installed our BightWall system. BrightWall is a rigid plastic sheeting that's attached to your basement wall by drilled-in plastic fasteners and provides a fully waterproof solution and creates a vapor barrier on the basement walls to block out water vapor and humidity, ensuring the homeowner won't have to worry about mold growth or rot. BrightWall provides a lively, clean look to the space while it also directs water seepage into the perimeter drain. Finally, the laundry tub and hot water tank were reinstalled, and the entire worksite was cleaned up, so the finished job looked even cleaner than when we arrived.                                  


This homeowner discovered that more complicated issues often require more personalized solutions, and HomeSpec is happy to deliver. As a happy bonus benefit, her job was even discounted due to her friend’s referral!

Rod Holes Fixed Saving Property Value In Canton, Mi

A Canton homeowner wanted to maximize the resale value of their home and wanted to ensure everything was in top shape. As they worked through the home, they noticed peculiar stained circular holes in the basement walls. Concerned, and not sure how to approach the problem, the homeowner reached out to HomeSpec to investigate and provide a solution.

Our crew heard out the homeowner’s concerns and explained that these were rod holes. When the foundation of the basement was originally poured during construction of a home, rods were used to hold the forms together until the concrete had cured. At which point the rods are removed, leaving holes to be filled with balls of hydraulic cement.

The problem is that these fillings often still have cavities that water will find its way through and wear away at causing leaks, as well as being known to fail over time, often resulting in discolored stains along the walls as a result.

Most, companies would want to put a simple band-aid on the problem with the fulcrum method, but that’s a temporary fix that may fail over time similar to how the hydraulic cement did.

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, 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.


A simple, clean, and cost-effective solution was provided to meet all the homeowners needs for basement waterproofing and foundation repair within a reasonable timeframe.

Basement Waterproofing and Sump Pump Upgrade Helps Alleviate Family's Wet Basement Problems, Canton Mi


A family in Canton, Michigan had experienced issues over the years with a few different sump pumps. The pumps would burn out, stop working, or wouldn’t be functional in a power outage leading to their basement flooding with water. The family reported that at least once a year they would have to use a shop vac and a series of fans to dry their basement for over a week. Increasingly frustrated, and confused by this regular problem, the family reached out for expert help from HomeSpec. 


HomeSpec’s Bobby Whitus sat down with the family to hear their retelling of events before conducting a thorough investigation of his own. It seemed that the first sump pump used was simply aged out and became faulty over time; another one had fried during a power outage, and a third failed to activate during a power outage letting the water level of the drainage well overflow. A series of unfortunate events had plagued this family and exhausted them.
Bobby presented an ideal solution for the family when he recommended the TripleSafe Sump Pump System. As the name suggests, this system uses 3 pumps, a powerful primary 1/3 hp pump to handle traditional needs, a secondary 1/2 pump to help offset extreme cases of rising water levels as well as to serve as a backup should the first fail, and the third pump as a battery powered backup system in case of a power outage or other emergency that could hinder the first two while being capable of discharging up to 11,500 gallons of water on a single charge. A proven and long-lasting solution for basement water problems.


Even the most efficiently waterproofed basements can still feel damp at times, so a final touch for the sake of comfortability and assurance was needed. That last touch being a proper dehumidifier. Using the SaniDry Sedona basement dehumidifier, a size efficient solution (so much so that it can also be used as a crawlspace dehumidifier if the situation called) that costs less than other basement dehumidifiers and being capable of automatic drainage and humidity sensing, allows for a low maintenance, long lasting way to make the once incredibly damaged basement, comfortable again.

The family finally felt confident that they had a series of solutions in place with TripleSafe. Whether the problem be large storms, power outages, or otherwise, they could finally breathe easier with a comfortable, waterproofed basement.



Damp Smell Lingers From Wet Basement in Canton, MI

He normally experienced small water seepages in the spring and summertime after storms, but this was the first flood.

To solve this problem, HomeSpec installed a full waterproofing system. This includes an Interior Drainage System, Sump Pump, Vapor Barrier and Dehumidifier. These work together to capture water and funnel it away from the home before it floods or leaks. The dehumidifier maintains a healthy relative humidity and constantly conditions the air. 

The homeowner was so happy to finally have a healthy basement. He mentioned that he noticed an immediate difference in the humidity and smell of the home after the installation was complete. After the recent heavy rains, the system kept the basement completely dry!
