Helical Piers Solve Sinking Foundation Problem in Harsens Island, MI Helical Piers Solve Sinking Foundation Problem in Harsens Island, MI

This Harsens Island homeowner wanted to build over his old garage and renovate it, but he had a problem. The interior and exterior block walls were covered in stair-step cracks and the structure was in bad shape. He wanted these repaired, so he called the experts at HomeSpec.

Our foundation specialists took a road trip (and then a ferry) up to Harsens Island to inspect the problem and provide a proposal. They ended up discovering that the cracks were a result of something more serious - foundation sinking. The problem would only get worse, and only fixing the cosmetic issues wouldn't solve anything. 

This happened because the soil under the foundation was too unstable/loose to support it. Helical piers were needed to stabilize the structure. The piers are screwed deep into stronger, more competent soil. They anchor into the ground and the weight of the foundation is transferred to prevent further sinking. They can even lift the foundation to its original position!

Now that the garage is stabilized, the homeowner is excited to continue with his renovations!

Job Stories From Harsens Island, MI
Wet Crawl Space Dehumidified and Waterproofed in Harsens Island, MI

These homeowners live in Harsens Island near a canal and like many other homes in the area, their crawl space was wet and muddy at all times. Also like many other homes in the area, the crawl space was only equipped with an old sump pump that didn't always work. This led to a musty smell and humidity seeping into the home. 

HomeSpec deals with this problem on a weekly basis- the crawl space needed to be waterproofed and encapsulated. A more powerful sump pump was needed to deal with the high amounts of water. A vapor barrier was also installed to seal the walls and the ground off from moisture. Lastly, a dehumidifier was installed to control the relative humidity. 

The homeowners noticed an immediate difference in the smells of their home, as well as the temperature. They are very pleased with their dry, healthy crawl space!
