Wet basements are not fun for anyone - water can damage furniture and belongings stored downstairs, mold can grow and cause health problems, and homeowners can waste a lot time and money cleaning it up. If water is constantly seeping into a basement, it can eventually flood severely. A homeowner in Ecorse, Michigan dealt with a wet basement for many years, and after a serious flood finally decided to install a full waterproofing system. 

After a thorough inspection and many conversations with the homeowner about his needs, the project manager proposed a solution. That solution included a perimeter drainage system, sump pump, and vapor barrier. 

The drainage system + sump pump is integral to waterproof a basement. They prevent water from flooding into the basement by collecting it first then funneling it away from the home. The vapor barrier prevents moisture and water vapor from entering through the walls, and instead directs it down to the drain. It also covers the unsightly stains on the concrete wall. 

The homeowner is very satisficed with his newly dry basement, and he's thankful he doesn't have to stress about it anymore.

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

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 BasementFix 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 Ecorse, MI
Failing Support System in Crawl Space Solved with SmartJack Support System in Ecorse, MI

A homeowner recently converted their home and had decided to make additions in order to raise the property value and improve their living space. While working on these additions, they became increasingly concerned that the amount of work done to the home was causing the supports to fail. After doing some research into foundation support systems, this homeowner began to search for the best foundation repair companies near Ecorse, MI. This led them to contact HomeSpec BasementFix as the best fit for their needs.

AJ, a Project Manager, who also has related experience in crawl space foundation repair, was sent to Ecorse to discuss the homeowners concerns in more detail while also providing an inspection, free of charge. While explaining the renovations, it was brought to the Project Managers attention that the support posts were cracked and in need of repair, as well as the foundation showing signs of cracking due to the failing cinder block supports. Traditional support posts are prone to failure over time, especially with the addition of newer concrete adding extra weight to the support system. This is because traditional supports are sometimes incorrectly spaced along the beams, thereby making them unable to distribute the weight evenly and causing the cinder blocks to crack. They are also subject to pest damage and humid conditions can speed up the process of them failing. This is what led AJ to propose a permanent solution that involved installing the SmartJack Support System in order to bring the structural integrity back to its original condition. 

The SmartJack Support System was ideal for this crawl space repair service because of its ability to support loads over 60,000 lbs. ensured the extra weight from this homeowner's additions would not cause stress on the crawl space support jacks. SmartJack is installed on a base of engineered fill in order to prevent the support jacks from sinking into the ground or shifting unnecessarily, which could potentially cause future problems for the homeowner. Due to its permanent nature, SmartJack is adjustable year-round to meet the needs of the home over time and help the homeowner retain their peace of mind when it comes to making renovations.

With the crawl space foundation repair successfully completed, and this homeowners fears of a failing support system put to rest, they were impressed with the work done by our team and were happy to recommend HomeSpec BasementFix to friends and family in need of foundation repair services.

Crawl Space Foundation Repair Solved with SmartJack Support System in Ecorse, MI
 
Two homeowners recently purchased a home in Ecorse, MI and had big plans to do renovations; their plans were stalled to a halt when they began to feel how uncomfortable the sagging floors were. Wanting to address the problem and prevent further problems from compounding, they began to search for foundation repair nearby. This led them to contact HomeSpec BasementFix for this foundation repair job.

Ben, an Experienced Project Manager, was called out to Ecorse to provide a free inspection and discuss the problems with the homeowners in more detail. After inspecting the foundation, Ben explained that there seemed to be an issue with the crawl space support posts which could be caused by them sinking into the soil below or even mold or pest damage. Traditional wooden support posts are prone to woodrot, which over time, causes them to lose their ability to support the weight of the floors. After informing the homeowner of their current situation, Ben recommended a SmartJack Support System to raise the floors back so they could begin the renovations to their new home.

The first thing that needed to be done in this crawl space foundation repair was to clear out the debris from the crawl space and create a safe working environment for our crew. After the crawl space had been cleared, the next step was to replace the old wooden supports with the SmartJack Support System. This is done by digging out a base of engineered fill for the crawl space support jacks to prevent them from sinking into the soil. Once the base is filled, the SmartJack is installed and adjusted to the correct height in order to raise the floors back to level. The galvanized steel beams resist corrosion, mold, and pest damage while also being able to adjust year-round to meet the homeowners needs over time. This solution was ideal for these homeowners because the SmartJack Support System is a permanent solution for their crawl space support needs.

With the new homeowners excited to have the floors level again, they were more than happy to recommend HomeSpec BasementFix to neighbors in need of crawl space repair and begin renovations to the home.
