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.

An unfinished crawl space can cause a ton of problems for homeowners, most notably moisture-related issues. Moisture can cause rot, mold, and other forms of decay, compromising the structural integrity of the home. Additionally, high levels of humidity can create an environment that attracts pests such as termites, rodents, and insects. Not only does this pose a health risk for the occupants of the home, but it can also make it difficult to sell the property in the future.

When our crew recommended the The CleanSpace Encapsulation system and SaniDry Sedona to help solve these moisture problems, the homeowners were more than happy to get the work started. The CleanSpace Encapsulation system involves installing a heavy-duty liner to the floor and walls of the crawl space, creating an impermeable barrier that prevents water and moisture from seeping in. The SaniDry Sedona, on the other hand, is a dehumidifier that helps control the level of humidity within the crawl space. The combination of these two systems helps create a dry, healthy, and pest-free environment in the crawl space, ensuring the longevity of the home and the family's health.

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.

Job Stories From Grosse Ile, MI
Homeowner in Grosse Ile, MI has Musty Smell Removed by Encapsulating the Crawl Space with CleanSpace

A Family in Allen Park, MI had been dealing with a persistent problem of water buildup and mold in their unfinished basement for years and were growing concerned with the large cracks in the walls and floor that were allowing water to seep in and create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. The damp and musty smell in the basement was not only unpleasant but also a health hazard for their family. After doing some research, they were determined to solve this problem once and for all. This led them to reach out to HomeSpec BasementFix and schedule their free inspection.

That's when our experienced Project Manager was sent to the residence to discuss their concerns in more detail and find a solution for her basement. After a thorough inspection, we recommended the installation of the WaterGuard Drainage System, TripleSafe Sump System, and the SaniDry Sedona.

The WaterGuard Drainage System is a low-profile, underground system that captures water seeping into the basement through cracks or holes in the foundation and channels it away to a sump pump for removal. Our crew installed the system along the perimeter of the basement, ensuring that all water was captured and removed before it could cause damage. To ensure that the water was removed quickly and efficiently, we also installed the TripleSafe Sump System. This system features a heavy-duty sump pump that quickly pumps water out of the basement and away from the foundation. In the event of a power outage or pump failure, the system also features a battery-powered backup pump that kicks in automatically to ensure that water continues to be removed. Finally, to address the mold and mildew problem, our crew installed the SaniDry Sedona. This advanced dehumidification system utilizes a powerful air filter to remove excess moisture from the air, preventing the growth of mold and mildew and reducing musty odors. The system also features an automatic draining system that removes the collected water and a built-in air purification system that captures allergens, dust, and other contaminants, making the basement air healthier to breathe.

With the combination of these three systems, this family’s basement was completely dry, and the musty smell was gone from their memory. With the mold and mildew no longer raising an issue this family can begin work to finish their basement without any health hazards. These homeowners were extremely satisfied with the results and grateful for the peace of mind that comes with a dry, healthy basement.

Sinking Foundation Solved with Helical Pier Support System in Grosse Ice, MI

A family was looking to make improvements to their home in Grosse Ile, MI. This led them to undertake the task of finishing their basement, while clearing out the storage; they noticed cracks in the foundation walls where the foundation slab sits and this caused them concern. Not wanting to slow down their progress, they went on with their work and soon forgot about it until a few months later when the cracks started to get bigger. Understanding this was a sign of a foundation issue, they reached out to friends in order to find the best foundation repair companies in Grosse Ile. After doing their own research and locating repair contractors nearby, they were recommended to HomeSpec BasementFix by a friend, who recently had crawl space repair services done by us.  

One of our Project Managers, with experience in foundation repair, was assigned to this project in order to best fit the needs of this family. After consulting with the homeowners about their concerns, he began his detailed inspection of the basement. During the inspection, the Project Manager noted how the basement had two slabs on opposite ends of the basement and were cracking in both directions. This foundation shifting is caused when soils underneath the foundation can no longer support the weight of the home and wash out, leaving a void that the foundation sinks into. With this, our Project Manager proposed a solution that involved Helical Support Piers to bring it back to level and return structural integrity back to the foundation. 

The Helical Pier Support System is an ideal solution for this project because the helical plates that are welded to the shaft of the piers are screwed deeper into the ground to provide support and act as an anchor. Helical Piers are attached to the foundation with steel brackets to ensure the slabs do not shift, and once they are adjusted and advanced to newer load bearing soils, the Helical Piers will maintain the structural integrity of the foundation. The Helical Pier support System addresses the root cause of this familys problem and puts their fears to rest with this permanent solution. 

After the foundation repair was solved, this family was happy to get back to their project without the fear of foundation settlement causing them problems in the future.

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.
