Homeowner Buys Grosse Ile, MI Home With MAJOR Water & Foundation Issues

There is no sugar coating this – this foundation was in BAD shape. The homeowner bought the house in Grosse Ile, Michigan with intentions to fix it up and repair the obvious issues in the basement. First of all, water would seep through the block walls and leak into the basement. The walls were covered in stains making them look very unsightly. The walls were also severely cracked and bowing inward, which is dangerous for the entire structure. 

The homeowner didn't want to cut corners, she wanted everything repaired properly and permanently. After Project Manager Mark Buhr developed a repair plan, Foreman Jerry Blevins and his crew got to work. 

The foundation walls first needed to be excavated and pushed back as into place. Then a Carbon Fiber System was installed to stabilized the walls and prevent them from moving again. To solve the water issues, a WaterGuard Below Floor Drainage System was installed around the perimeter of the basement to prevent water intrusion. Our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier was installed over the walls to prevent moisture and water vapor from entering, but instead directs it down into the drainage system. Lastly, we installed our SilverGlo Insulation to seal the rim joists. 

The homeowner sincerely thanked HomeSpec for making a serious, tiring issue get fixed so smoothly and quickly.

Ruth in Grosse Ile, Michigan reached out to HomeSpec to repair her damaged foundation walls. The walls were cracked and bowing, allowing water to seep in. Ruth was worried about the large project and didn't know what to do, but HomeSpec reassured her that we would solve her issues permanently before they worsen. 

Our project manager Mark Buhr first conducted the inspection to develop a repair plan. Foreman Ryan Loop and his crew then got to work. They excavated the foundation wall to push the wall back to it's original position, then waterproofed the exterior. Inside, the PowerBrace Wall Repair System and Carbon Fiber Straps were used to stabilize the walls and stop them from moving. They were even able to straighten the bowing wall. Lastly, all cracks were sealed and new glass block windows replaced the old ones. 

Ruth no longer needs to stress about her foundation. The walls are not only stabilized, but waterproofed as well.

Dependable Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Repair Contractor Serving Grosse Ile

Signs of a wet basement can be found throughout the home, even in the upper levels: musty smells, a decrease in air quality and energy efficiency, peeling or bubbling paint, buckling hardwood floors, and mold or mildew growth.

  • Perimeter drainage systems

Without adequate structural support, some crawl spaces can even sink and cause shifting floors and walls in the upper levels of your home. HomeSpec BasementFix addresses and corrects damaged, ill-fitting crawl spaces across Grosse Ile with the following services:

  • Crawl Space Insulation
  • Crawl Space Drainage
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Crawl Space Structural Repair

Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in Grosse Ile

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.

Professional Installers of Gutters & Gutter Guards in Grosse Ile & Nearby

At HomeSpec BasementFix, we know that poorly constructed gutters can negatively impact a home inside and out. Gutters that collect debris can become heavy and sag, no longer effectively redirecting water away from your home. This can cause roof leaks, washout around your foundation, and a serious reduction in curb appeal or home value. To ensure this doesn’t happen, HomeSpec BasementFix installs the durable Gutter Shutter® System, which is made with premium-grade aluminum and backed by unbeatable guarantees:

  • Lifetime No-Pull Guarantee - will never sag or pull away from your home, performing well on both steep and shallow pitch roofs.
  • Lifetime No-Clog Guarantee - will never fill with debris or clog thanks to its innovative design, which includes a specially perforated cover.

As an authorized installer of the renowned Gutter Shutter® system, we look forward to improving Wayne County homes with seamless gutters and gutter guards that are proven to last a lifetime.

Job Stories From Grosse Ile, MI
Basement Waterproofed in Grosse Ile, MI

These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because they had vertical cracks in their basement walls, floor cracks, and water was seeping in.

Our crew repaired the cracks with our polyurethane sealant and reinforced them. Then we stabilized the walls with braces to prevent movement. To waterproof the basement, we installed an interior drainage system with a sump pump and installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls. 

This ensures not only that water will not get in, but that the foundation walls will remain stable.
