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

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 Oakland 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 Ferndale, MI
Homeowner with Persistent Odors in Ferndale, MI has their Crawl Space Encapsulated with CleanSpace

A family in Ferndale, MI had been Experiencing a persistent moisture problem in their crawl space. The unpleasant odors were permeating throughout their home, making it an uncomfortable living environment. Not only that, but they also noticed that the bathroom floors felt unnaturally cold, especially during the winter months. Concerned about potential damage to the floors and pipes, and the possibility of mold growing in the crawl space, they contacted us for a solution.

 

Upon arrival, the homeowner emphasized their desire to ensure that no animals or pests could make their way into the crawlspace, as they wanted to maintain a clean and safe living environment for their family. After our Project Manager reassured the homeowner that they would come up with a solution for their concerns, he began carefully inspecting the homeowners crawlspace to assess the extent of the moisture issue. Based on his findings, he proposed a custom solution to fit their needs; the CleanSpace Encapsulation System, the Sanidry - Sedona, and the EverLast Door.

 

The first step for our crew was to install the CleanSpace Encapsulation System. Our crew covered the entire area with the puncture-resistant CleanSpace material and explained that this vapor barrier would prevent any moisture or humidity from entering the crawlspace, eliminating the source of the unpleasant odors and preventing any mold from growing. Next, our crew focused on improving the overall air quality in the crawlspace. They installed the Sanidry - Sedona dehumidification system, which is designed to fit in the crawl space and control the moisture levels. Lastly, to enhance the protection of the homeowners crawl space, our crew installed an EverLast Door. This energy-efficient door would not only keep out animals and pests but also prevent drafts from seeping into the crawlspace and making their floors cold. 

 

Once our crew had successfully installed all three systems, the family noticed an overall improvement in her home's atmosphere. The unpleasant smells were gone, and the once chilly bathroom floors were now pleasantly warm, providing newfound comfort during the colder seasons.

 

Ferndale, MI homeowner Has Garage Cracks Repaired with NexusPro and Lifted with Helical Pier Support System

A homeowner in Ferndale, MI was becoming increasingly stressed by the condition of the home they owned. They had owned it for over 20 years and had just recently moved in. The previous owner had not taken care of the home and this led to damage in the garage, crawl space and basement. This homeowner decided they needed to sell the property, but in the condition it was in that was not possible. This homeowner enjoyed the property but was dissatisfied with how it was maintained. Worried that if they left it alone any longer, the issues could get worse, they contacted HomeSpec BasementFix for this repair. 

One of our Project Managers, Jeremiah, was sent to the home in Ferndale to assess the damage and provide this homeowner with a solution that would restore their peace of mind. Upon further inspection, Jeremiah noted how the garage had cracks that ran the length of the space, as well as one corner sinking below level. Understanding the homeowners needs and wanting to provide a permanent solution, he recommended the Helical Pier Support System to level out the garage and NexusPro Crack Repair to fill the cracks in the floor.

In order to restore the property value for this homeowner and give them quality of life improvements, the first step in this foundation repair was to fill the cracks in the floor with the NexusPro Crack Repair solution. NexusPro is a silicone-based sealant that is specifically designed to be flexible so the sealant stays healthy with the movement of the floor over time. The next step in this repair was to raise the garage floor back to level with the Helical Pier Support System. Helical piers are a permanent solution to sinking foundations because the helical plates that are welded to the shaft of the piers act like a screw and anchor them to newer load bearing soils. This prevents the foundation from shifting and allows the homeowner to have a worry-free experience they can witness firsthand. 

With the garage restored to its original condition and the foundation leveled, this homeowner was relieved to have HomeSpec BasementFix provide a long lasting solution that they could enjoy for years to come.

Crawl Space Leaking Causing Health Problems Solved with CleanSpace Encapsulation and SmartPipe Drainage System in Ferndale, MI

A homeowner in Ferndale, MI, had been experiencing adverse health effects recently and couldn't figure out why. The mold that had grown in their crawl space was beginning to cause this homeowner trouble. Headaches, and difficulty breathing were the primary health concerns this homeowner was facing; this led them to reach out to their adult children to try and find a solution. The children, understanding more about crawl space-related issues, were quick to contact HomeSpec BasementFix for this crawl space encapsulation project.

One of our crawl space repair experts, Zach, was sent to the homeowners property in order to discuss the concerns of the owner and the children in more detail and provide a free inspection. After the situation was explained to our Project Manager, Zach explained how the troubled breathing and headaches were caused by the stack effect. The stack effect is when warm air rises up through the crawl space and cold air enters to replace it. When the crawl space is filled with warm, damp air, it fosters a breeding ground for mold and other organic growth, which rises up through the floors and into the living space, causing trouble breathing and future health problems for the homeowner. Zach recommended the crawl space be encapsulated in order to seal it off from any growth and a SmartSump to drain the water and keep the crawl space dry. 

Returning peace of mind, while securing the health of the homeowner and their children was a top priority on this project, which is why our crew set out to install our crawl space encapsulation system. The first order of business was to encapsulate the crawl space and keep it dry. CleanSpace uses multi-layer fabric that is engineered to keep moisture out and heat in, allowing for healthy air to ventilate through the space and provide benefits this homeowner could experience firsthand. The last step was to install the SmartPipe Drain. Unlike other drainage systems, it is is specifically designed to fit in crawl spaces, this drain system prevents leaks in the crawl space and combined with the SmartSump and its ability to pump 2,500 gallons of water an hour, prevent any moisture from collecting in the crawlspace and allowing organic growth which could affect the homeowners health even further. 

With the crawlspace successfully encapsulated, this family was more than happy to breathe clean air once more and say goodbye to all the health problems they were experiencing.
