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!

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.

  • Crawl Space Insulation
  • Crawl Space Drainage

  • Crawl Space Structural Repair

Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in Harsens Island

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 Saint Clair 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 Harsens Island & 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 Saint Clair County homes with seamless gutters and gutter guards that are proven to last a lifetime.

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!
