Wet, Musty Basement in Detroit, MI Gets Waterproofing Makeover

Wet, Musty Basement in Detroit, MI Gets Waterproofing Makeover Wet, Musty Basement in Detroit, MI Gets Waterproofing Makeover

Adrienne C. in Detroit, Michigan purchased this duplex only one year ago, and with all the rain this summer, realized that water was seeping in through the block walls and at the base of the floor. The walls were very discolored and clearly water damaged. She wanted a permanent solution, so HomeSpec stepped in to help.

Foreman Vernon Bryan and his crew installed 3 products 1) Foamax Wall Panels 2) WaterGuard Drainage System 3) TripleSafe Sump Pump.

The wall panels not only cover the unsightly basement walls, but they insulate the basement and help direct water into the drainage system. The drainage system (also know as French drain) installs around the perimeter of the basement below the floor to capture water before it leaks into the basement. This then deposits the water into the sump pump, where the 3 levels of pumps will funnel any amount of water away from the foundation. 

This system will keep the basement dry while also helping it look great – plus Adrienne was very thankful for the permanent fix!

These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because they were suffering from a wet basement in their old Detroit home. They had made attempts to fix the drainage, but everything failed. Water was seeping through the block foundation walls after heavy rain, causing the paint on the walls to peel. The floors would also be damp. The basement was in bad shape and the homeowners didn't want to stress about any longer. 

Our team solved this problem by completely waterproofing the basement with an interior drainage system, vapor barrier, dehumidifier, and two new sump pumps. The vapor barrier over the walls will prevent water vapor and moisture from entering the basement and instead direct it down to the drainage system. After the water drains into the drainage system, it'll be directed toward the sump pump and expelled away from the home, preventing water issues.

This commercial building in Detroit was suffering from an extremely wet basement, as you can see from the photos. The basement flooded after an old sump pump went out, so the owners called HomeSpec for help. 

Project Manager Bobby Whitus came up with a repair plan that addresses all aspects of this problem. Foreman Jon Davis and his crew installed a WaterGuard Interior Drainage System connected to a TripleSafe Sump Pump. This system collects the water and deposits it into the sump pump, where there's 3 levels of pumps for triple the protection. This then pumps the water away from the foundation. 

Our crew then installed a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to seal the walls off from moisture, and instead directs it down into the drainage system.

Job Stories From Detroit, MI
Detroit, Mi Wall Stabilization and Foundation Repair

A family had only recently purchased this home in Detroit, Mi, together. However, they discovered that the house was settling and had created a large crack in the basement. The crack in the wall was horizontal with no water coming through yet; however, the house was noted to be shifting quite a bit and would require immediate inspection. Their grandparents had previous foundation repair and PolyLevel work done in Detroit by HomeSpec Basementfix and referred them to us.                  

 

Project manager Mark sat down with the couple to address their worries before conducting his inspection of the property. The family was originally hoping that a PolyLevel job might be possible, but the problem had evolved beyond house leveling and foundation repair; this task was more focused on structural support. Mark proposed the use of the PowerBrace Foundation Repair System. Consisting of steel I-beams that are secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. This system is easily adjustable, allowing for tightening of the brace to attempt to raise the wall back to its original position. This system doesn't involve any exterior excavation and installs quickly with minimal disruption to the home.                                        

 

 Now, with reliable wall stabilization to assist their foundation, this family could put away their fear of the house caving in on itself, and simply enjoy life. Not to mention, they even had their job discounted because of their grandparent’s referral!
