This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he discovered leaking rod holes in his basement wall.

Rod holes are a sneaky, yet quick and easy problem to fix. They were formed when the walls were originally made - steel rods were passed through the concrete to hold the form panels together. This is done to keep the shape and prevent the concrete from bulging. They were then removed, leaving the holes behind. 

After our crew sealed them up, you couldn't even tell they were ever there!

Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in Dearborn Heights

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 Wayne 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 Dearborn Heights, MI
Couple in Dearborn Heights, MI has WaterGuard and TripleSafe Installed in Their Basement to Protect Against Water Damage

A couple in Dearborn Heights, MI had recently been noting a persistent flow of water through a floor-to-wall junction in their basement. Although it had caused no damage to their belongings yet, the vertical cracks in the walls prompted them to address the issue once and for all. As they had been planning to move closer to their daughters in the next five years, they wanted this issue taken care of as soon as possible. After asking around for advice, they were directed to us at HomeSpec as the best fit for the project. 


Upon contacting us, we scheduled a visit with one of our experienced Project Managers who carefully inspected their basement and recommended a custom solution for the couple. The WaterGuard Drainage System and the TripleSafe Sump Pump would be the best course of action to prevent damage from occurring in the future and solve their current problem of water leaking into the basement.


The WaterGuard Drainage System, is a product installed on the foundation footing, which keeps it away from the "mud zone," ensuring debris does not clog the drainage channel over time. The TripleSafe is a specialized sump pump with three separate pumps that provide multiple layers of protection against basement flooding and water infiltration. The first pump handles the standard pumping, the second assists the first with high volumes of water, and the third pump, equipped with a backup system, guarantees continuous functionality even during power outages.


Our crew arrived at the couples home and immediately began by installing the WaterGuard System. They started by excavating a shallow trench along the perimeter of the basement walls to create space for the WaterGuard and then removed the flooring to expose the foundation footing. The WaterGuard is then installed within the trench, secured firmly against the basement walls with special flanges to ensure water is directed away from the basement and into the sump pit. Its clog-resistant design ensured no debris would affect the drainage system for many years. Next, the TripleSafe Sump Pump was positioned in the sump pit, with the battery backup system set in place. Our crew then carefully resealed the trench, restoring the floor to its original state, leaving no visible trace of the installation, except for the added peace of mind it brought to the couple.


Upon completing the installation, our crew tested the systems to ensure they were working together properly and took extra time to explain to the couple how to maintain and monitor the system in the future. They could now plan their move with the reassurance that their basement was protected from water damage.

Dearborn Heights, Mi Sump Pump Replaced and Leaky Basement Waterproofed

Many years ago, this Dearborn Heights, Mi homeowner had her foundation walls braced by HomeSpec, still standing strong. Fast forward to the modern day, and time had caused an issue where water was coming up from her floor. Recalling the reliable foundation work done before, she reached out to HomeSpec as a basement waterproofing contractor, with faith that we'd provide a long-term solution once again.


Mark was our chosen representative, who set out to have a discussion with the homeowner and conduct a thorough inspection to determine the best possible solution set for her. In this case, the solution would be two-fold. Firstly, she needed a proper drainage system to address water leakages and general basement waterproofing. To catch the water at the perimeter and drain it away discreetly and effectively, our crew installed the WaterGuard custom engineered piping solution. This system would drain into an existing basin that needed its sump pump swapped, after discovering it had burnt out. To that end, we introduced a Zoeller Pump.


Now that they had both a proper drainage system, and a basement sump pump working in tandem, addressing the exact area of concern around the perimeter of the basement, the homeowner could rest assured with their new basement waterproofing. She wouldn’t have to worry about any wet basement problems anymore, and could enjoy using her now dry basement

Dearborn Heights, Mi Basement Waterproofed and Dehumidifier Installed

A Dearborn Heights, Mi homeowner was growing tired of water leaking into his basement from an unknown source. He'd been wanting to convert the space into a recreational room to relax in after long work hours for a while. However, constant water damage and general wet basement problems prevented him from reaching his goal at every turn. He needed a specialist in basement waterproofing near Dearborn Heights. A coworker of theirs who had previous work done, put him in touch with HomeSpec BasementFix.


HomeSpec had Elon Williams meet with this homeowner. After a brief introduction, Elon heard out the list of concerns the homeowner had, before describing what he would be looking for as part of his investigation into the cause of these leaks. Once the inspection was concluded, Elon was able to report that he had found evidence of water coming through the walls from multiple locations and cracks behind the drywall and along the edges of the floor as well. He also determined the current gutter wasn't directing waterflow correctly, and was most like dumping water too close to the windows or letting it seep in.


Elon proposed installing the WaterGuard piping system and extending their drainage system by 50 ft to handle the water coming through. However, he noted that before anything else could be done, the current carpeting would have to be removed due to its repeated water damage and possibility of mold growth underneath.


Jon Davis was the head foreman tasked with implementing this plan. They began with removal of the wet carpet and disinfecting the area to create a safer work and living environment alike. NexusPro crack repair sealant was used on the cracks, a specially engineered silicone-based sealant with high durability. This sealant proves to be unlike others by being UV resistant, meaning it won't bubble, crack or dry. The next step was to install the WaterGuard drainage system, which would intercept water at the perimeter of the basement and drain it unseen safely away. A customizable solution, that works with all types of foundations while being a non-clogging alternative to other piping systems.


Once these solutions were in place, the team also rerouted the gutter downspouts over the back fence and buried the extensions for a clean finish. Finally, to ensure the space would be comfortable for the owner's desired recreational dreams, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed as a last touch. A small, yet powerful dehumidifier that eliminates damp, musty odors in the basement by drying and filtering the air, considered to be the world's most powerful dehumidifier for its size, while also being small enough to be used as a crawl space dehumidifier as needed.


The homeowner was excited by the finished job, and the prospect of being able to functionally use his newly waterproofed basement for his leisure. Not only that, but his coworker’s referral saved him money on the final cost.
