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

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, MI
Homeowner in Dearborn, MI Who Fears Mold Growth Has Us Encapsulate Their Crawl Space with CleanSpace Encapsulation System

In a small neighborhood in Dearborn, MI there was a homeowner who was already planning for the future. They envisioned creating a comfortable and healthy living space for their family and knew that in order to achieve this, they needed to address the moisture issues in the crawlspace. Organic growth like mold and bacteria had become a big concern for them in recent months due to the heavy rains, especially with their young daughters and elderly parents living under the same roof. Although allergies weren't the primary concern, they just couldn't ignore the discomfort of cold floors in the kitchen area during meal times with family. After looking into crawl space repair companies nearby, they came across our website and scheduled a visit as soon as they could. 

 

Upon arriving at the residence and listening to the homeowners concerns, our Project Manager proceeded to inspect the crawl space thoroughly. He made sure to take note of any mold that was starting to show signs of growing. After completing the free inspection, he recommended the best way to protect the home was to have the crawl space sealed with the CleanSpace Encapsulation and to address the kitchen floors, the EverLast Door would be the perfect choice for their home.

 

The CleanSpace Encapsulation System is designed to address moisture and organic growth issues in crawl spaces. Our crew began the process by thoroughly cleaning the debris in order to prep the area for installation. Then, they installed the multi-layered vapor barrier, which locks out moisture and prevents any mold or bacteria from growing. The encapsulation not only protected this home from long-term damage but it also ensured a healthier living environment for the family.

 

Next on the list was the EverLast Door to tackle the cold floor problem in the kitchen area. Our crew identified the area with the most noticeable temperature fluctuations and replaced the old, inefficient exterior door with our EverLast Door. This door boasted better  insulation properties like preventing heat loss and maintaining a comfortable temperature inside the home. 

 

Having finally completed the project, the homeowner was glad to have future-proofed their home for many years, and could rest better knowing they wouldn't have to worry about mold or cold floors for a very long time.

Family in Dearborn, MI Calls us in to have Leaking Basement Waterproofed

A family in Dearborn, MI had been living in their house for several years when they decided it was time to finally make some changes to the basement.  The water leaking in had caused them concern because they were unsure where it was coming from. All they knew was that every time it rained, there would be puddles all over the floor the next morning. At first, they tried to identify the source of the water by examining the basement walls and floor. They even attempted to fix the issue themselves by sealing the area where they thought the water was coming in. Unfortunately, despite all their efforts, the water kept coming in and the problem persisted. Wanting to finally address the problem once and for all, they reached out to us to schedule an appointment. 

When he described the problem to us over the phone, we knew we had seen issues like this before and immediately sent out a Project Manager to assess the basement and determine where the water was coming from. When he arrived, he began his thorough inspection of the basement and described how insufficient drainage is what could be causing this issue for the homeowner. When he discovered the cracks in the joint where the floor and wall meet, he knew it had to be a drainage problem for sure and recommended that this family have the WaterGuard installed. 

After explaining that the system works by collecting any water that seeps into the basement and channels it into a sump pump, which would then pump the water out of the basement and away from the home's foundation, they agreed to have the work done.

When our crew arrived, they began by carefully removing a small section of the basement floor around the perimeter so the WaterGuard System had a shallow trench to rest in. The WaterGuard System was then secured in place using high-strength polyurethane cement and finally fresh concrete was poured over the WaterGuard System, leaving a small gap between the wall and the floor to allow any water to drain into the system.

With the issue finally resolved, this family was happy to finally have their peace of mind restored and a dry, odor free basement.

 

Elderly Homeowner in Detroit, MI with Concerns of Floor Collapse has

An elderly citizen in Dearborn, MI had been experiencing sagging floors that were starting to dip towards the middle, causing them to worry about the potential for injury should the floors completely fail. Their daughter was becoming increasingly concerned with the effects this would have on the integrity of the home and had begun to notice cracks forming in the walls and ceiling. After doing some research into the best basement repair contractors nearby, their daughter reached out to HomeSpec BasementFix for a solution that would address the issue without requiring them to vacate the home for an extended period.

 

After assessing the homeowners situation, our Project Manager recommended the SmartJack Support System be installed. The elderly homeowner was initially uncertain about the proposed solution to their sagging floors and had some reservations about the installation process. However, the Project Manager took the time to carefully explain the SmartJack Support System and its benefits, answering all of the homeowner's questions and addressing their concerns. Additionally, our Project Manager provided a customized installation plan that took into account the homeowner's specific needs, minimizing any disruption to their daily life.

 

When the crew arrived on the date of installation, they began the installation process by excavating holes in the ground beneath the sagging floor areas. Then, they installed the SmartJack Support System, which consists of steel support columns that are adjustable and can be customized to fit the specific needs of the home. The system is designed to transfer the weight of the home to the more stable soils found deeper beneath the ground, providing additional support and stability to the structure. Finally, the crew replaced the excavated soil and ensured that the home was level and stable.

 

The installation of the SmartJack Support System completely and permanently solved this homeowner's sagging floor problem, and the homeowner no longer had to worry about the potential safety hazards or additional damage to their home. HomeSpec BasementFix provided the elderly homeowner and their daughter with peace of mind, knowing that their home was structurally sound and stable.

 

 

Heavy Rains Cause Basement Leaks in Dearborn, MI

This homeowner in Dearborn, Michigan contacted HomeSpec because her basement leaked after the recent heavy rains. The water was coming from the bottom of the walls and the walls were constantly damp. This led to the paint on the walls bubbling and efflorescence on the blocks (loss of lime salt). 

The homeowner wanted an interior French Drain System installed, which is exactly what they needed. With the drainage system installed around the perimeter of the basement, it would capture water before it leaks into the basement. We also installed a Vapor Barrier to the walls to block moisture and water vapor from intruding, and instead direct it into the drainage system.  

Dryloc Paint Fails, Wet Basement Continues to Leak in Dearborn, MI

These homeowners in Dearborn, Michigan contacted HomeSpec looking for answers to their wet basement problems. Like many homeowners, they tried covering their leaking basement walls with Dryloc paint (which claims to waterproof walls) and the paint simply peeled off. 

The homeowners continued to experience water issues especially after rains, including discoloration of the wall and a musty smell protruding from the basement. A lot of people try to DIY their waterproofing with the waterproof paint - which would be a great fix it it worked. But serious water issues call for a serious solution - which is where HomeSpec can help. 

Our team installed a French Drain System around the perimeter of the basement to trap incoming water before it can leak in - which is then deposited into the Sump Pump to send the water far away from the home. The homeowners also wanted a Vapor Barrier installed over the walls to hide the unsightly discoloration and direct moisture down into the drainage channel. 

Now the homeowner have a permanent solution to their wet basement woes, and don't have to worry about damp walls or musty smells any longer!
