Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in Harper Woods

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 Harper Woods, MI
Foundation Settlement and Basement Leaking Solved with Helical Piers and WaterGuard in Harper Woods, MI

A homeowner in Harper Woods, MI had a large vertical crack as well as many other problems in their basement. One night they were roused from their sleep by a very loud noise, which turned out to be a large amount of damage caused by sudden settlement. Scared and confused, they went to investigate the cause and found that their basement wall had split open and was about to fall in. Fearful of the structure collapsing, she rushed to search for the best foundation repair company and basement waterproofing company nearby. HomeSpec BasementFix was recommended on both levels, by a friend who recently had basement waterproofing done as the right choice for this job. 

A Project Manager with experience in foundation settlement was sent to the property to complete a detailed inspection of the sudden collapse of her basement wall. After calming down the homeowner and explaining that settlement usually occurs when one of the layers of soil originally dug out for the construction of the foundation can no longer support the weight above, it begins to sink. This is an example of how settlement, left unaddressed for long periods of time, can compound and cause heavier structural damage. The soils underneath the foundation are not as tightly packed as the untouched soil around it; after heavy rains, the water is absorbed into the soil, causing pressure against the foundation walls which will lead to cracks and bowing, and as soils shift they create a void that the foundation shifts into. After explaining the problem in more detail, the Project Manager recommended a way forward that involved a Helical Pier Support System to bring the foundation back to its original strength, and proper waterproofing solution with the WaterGuard Drainage System and SuperSump Sump Pump.

The first step in this foundation repair was to install the Helical Pier Support System. The helical plates that are welded to the shaft of the pier are drilled deep enough to reach newer load bearing soils, shifting the weight of the structure to support the foundation. The piers are adjustable to provide additional length, but the quick and easy installation makes the Helical Pier Support System perfect for this homeowners foundation settlement repair. The next step was to install a reliable Sump Pump to drain the water away from the foundation. Our SuperSump Sump Pump System, capable of expelling up to 2,200 gallons of water per hour, helped solve the issue of water leaking from the cracks in the basement. Finally, installing the WaterGuard Drainage System to drain into the sump pump was the last step in this foundation repair process. WaterGuard is a french drain system designed to be installed on the concrete footing to keep the drain from clogging. WaterGuard is a minimally invasive procedure that works well for this foundation repair.

With the foundation wall successfully repaired and the basement waterproofing system ready to be utilized, the homeowner was pleased with the work done by our crew and happy to receive a small referral discount for the repair.
