HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair have been to this same Chelsea, MI home before to fix the crawlspace. Now, the homeowners plan to do a complete renovation of their house except for the foundation. It is important to them that they address any issues with the foundation before building on top of it. They were so pleased with their crawlspace that they called HomeSpec again to take a look.

The inspector, Erik, explored the unfinished basement with a poured and concrete block foundation. There was water entering where the basement floor meets the wall. The current partial interior drainage system, IDS, in the basement was not preventing damage to items being stored there. To address this, Erik recommended replacing the current IDS with WaterGuard® around the entire basement instead of only specific areas. Additionally, connecting the new system to the existing concrete basin would require drilling into the concrete. The homeowner agreed to this proposal and also requested removing the two concrete steps at the bottom of the basement. This was within HomeSpec’s abilities and so they scheduled a crew, led by foreman Josh, to do the repairs.

Everything went according to plan. The interior drainage system would capture any water that intruded and direct it away from the house. The homeowner was pleased with the results and able to move on to other matters for rebuilding their home.

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

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 Washtenaw 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 Chelsea, MI
Sinking Home Solved with Helical Piers in Chelsea, MI



A homeowner in Chelsea, MI was approaching her home with an old friend visiting for the first time, when they mentioned noticing something didn't look right. Perplexed, they took a closer look and discovered that the house was sinking on one side, leading the homeowner to believe their foundation was failing. Sometimes we become so accustomed to our surroundings we don't realize somethings wrong until we get an outside perspective. In an attempt to prevent major structural damage, they consulted friends to find the best foundation repair companies nearby. HomeSpec BasementFix was recommended to them as the best fit for this repair.

Mark, a Project Manager with related experience in foundation settlement repair, was sent to the home to conduct a detailed inspection of the property and further address the homeowners concerns. Upon completing the inspection, Mark explained that over time, due to weather conditions, the soil dug out to build the foundation can become weaker due to excess moisture or a lack thereof. This can lead to weaker soils being unable to support the weight of the home and cause a void that the foundation sinks into. This process doesn't happen overnight, but if left unaddressed, can cause the foundation to crumble and destroy property value. After the homeowner was made fully aware of the situation, Mark recommended a solution that involved the Helical Pier Support System to bring the foundation back to proper level and restore the structural integrity.

The first step in this foundation repair was for our crew to dig out the soil around the foundation and install steel brackets for the Helical Pier System to attach to. Helical Piers are made of Galvanized steel to withstand corrosion and effectively act as a permanent solution. The helical plates welded to the shaft of the piers are used specifically to screw deep into the ground in order to reach more competent soils that can support the weight of the foundation. After the piers are adjusted to the appropriate height and screwed into the newer soils, the foundation is lifted back to level. Helical Piers address the root cause of homeowners sinking foundation repair by providing a sense of reliable security and a clean final installation.

The homeowners found themselves relieved from the stress of a problem that they didn't even realize was prevalent at first. They were grateful both for their friend's honesty in what they saw, and the quality of service provided by HomeSpec BasementFix.

Concrete Repair and Crack Repair in Chelsea, MI

This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he discovered cracks in his basement wall coming from an egress window (as shown in the photos). Over the summer, the cracks would leak after heavy rain, even after he extended the downspouts near the window. 

Our crew sealed the cracks with our polyurethane sealant, and reinforced them with carbon fiber power grids. This ensures the cracks will not worsen or leak again. 

While there, we also leveled the concrete walkway using our PolyLevel system, and sealed the joints. To do this, an expanding polyurethane foam is injected under the concrete slabs, which then raises and levels them.
