But two years later, their pump failed and the water back-up sprayed all over their basement. They were now ready to have a new system installed by HomeSpec.
So our crew removed the old system, and installed a new interior drainage system - with a new sump pump and battery backup to ensure that wouldn't happen again. The backup keeps the pump running even if there's a loss of power.
The homeowners recently had their annual system flush and are still happy with the work that was done by HomeSpec!
These older Armada homeowners were experiencing worse-than-normal allergies this spring and couldn't figure out why. Their son suspected there could be mold growing somewhere. When he inspected the crawl space, sure enough the joists were covered in mold and it was incredibly damp in there. That's when they called HomeSpec.
First, the mold had to be permanently removed. Our crew used the Mold X-2 Botanical to prevent the mold from growing back, plus it's made from an all-natural Thyme-based formula!
Our specialists highly recommended that the crawl space be repaired with a dehumidifier and an encapsulation system. The vapor barrier and dehumidifier prevent moisture from entering the crawl space and control the humidity levels at all times. This prevents mold from growing and prevents the wood from rotting. Our dehumidifiers do much more work for much less energy, which is why they're worth the investment. At least these homeowners thought so!
A homeowner contacted us because water was seeping into his basement where the wall and floor meet. Our inspector found that the water was coming through all of the basement walls, so an interior drainage system would be the best solution to stop the problem.

Plus, our work is backed by a warranty, so if there were future issues with our system, the homeowner could rest assured that it would be promptly fixed by us.
A homeowner contacted us because he was concerned about a vertical crack in his basement wall. Our crew injected the crack.
This repair will keep the crack from leaking in the future. It will also prevent the crack from getting larger and damaging the foundation of the home.
While cracks in basement walls aren't always an imminent threat, it is important to get them checked by a trained inspector to determine if they need to be professionally repaired.
One summer, this Romeo, Michigan homeowner felt that his home was more humid than normal. His air conditioner was working overtime trying to cool the sticky, dense air. One day he went into his crawl space for something, and witnessed a scene that shocked him - condensation had formed over all of the surfaces. It was extremely musty and wet.
The homeowner was surprised because he thought having opening vents in his crawl space would allow air to pass through freely and keep it dry - but it did the exact opposite. This is a very common misconception. When the humid air enters the crawl space, it cools and deposits moisture. That’s when you find condensation - and eventually mold.
Our crawl space expert explained this to the homeowner after completing the inspection. The homeowner decided to have his crawl space encapsulated and a dehumidifier installed to solve this problem. The vapor barrier sealed the entire area and blocked water vapor from entering. Our powerful dehumidifier controlled the moisture in the air. The homeowner felt an immediate difference in the air quality of the home above. He was so glad he called HomeSpec!
The basement in his Romeo home flooded badly after a heavy rainfall. The power went out during the storm, and with it, the sump pump. Luckily, the basement wasn't finished and there weren't too many belongings on the ground. Too often are precious memories or things ruined by floods - including the basement itself. The homeowner was stressed and never wanted this to happen again, so she called HomeSpec.
Our team installed a full basement waterproofing system. That includes an interior drainage system which will collect water from under the floor and from the walls and filter it into the TripleSafe sump pump. This sump is equipped with 3 pumps for triple the power and protection. It's powerful enough to pump out thousands of gallons of water an hour. She also decided to have a sump pump alarm installed to immediately alert her in case the pumps are working for any reason. This homeowner can now rest assured that her basement is dry and protected.
This Romeo, Michigan family was quickly growing. They had two children and were expecting twins, so they needed more living space. That's when they decided to finish their basement, but there was one problem - it wasn't waterproofed. They had a lot of water problems in the past and didn't want to risk it. This is when HomeSpec stepped in.
We used an interior drainage system and a sump pump to waterproof the basement. Then we installed our BrightWall panels over the walls to act as a vapor barrier and brighten up the living space. Unlike drywall, they are rigid plastic panels that are waterproof and washable!
For the flooring, the homeowners chose ThermalDry® carpeted floor tiles, which keeps your basement floor dry and warm. Made of inorganic materials, the homeowners won't have to worry about mold or rot. Since their young boys' rooms were being moved to the basement, they were worried about the kids damaging the tiles. HomeSpec assured them that individual tiles can easily be replaced. The homeowners were happy they were able to waterproof their basement and double their living space.
This New Haven homeowner wanted to finish his basement, but he had water seeping in at several spots. He put waterproofing material on the wall (shown in photo), but it didn't work and water continued to penetrate. Many customers contact us after not being able to fix problems themselves with DIY hacks. The homeowner called HomeSpec to professionally waterproof the basement so he could finally renovate.
Our crew installed an interior drainage system with a sump pump. This system will collect the water, funnel it into the sump pump, which will them expel the water away from the home through a discharge line. We also installed our ThermalDry wall system which creates a radiant heat barrier to keep heat inside your basement, but also works with the waterproofing system to keep the basement dry. It does this by acting as a vapor barrier and directing water down to the drainage system.
This homeowner owned his home for 30 years, but was considering selling it in the future. There was only one problem - the basement would leak. The basement floor had several cracks that would leak or be damp, especially in the spring. He also lived in an area with a high water table, so he definitely needed a waterproofing system. This is common in cities near large lakes. Without one, the water problems would only get worse and it would negatively impact the value of his home.
So HomeSpec installed a full basement waterproofing system. The cracks were sealed, and an interior drainage system was installed around the perimeter of the foundation. A TripleSafe sump pump was installed for triple the protection - to funnel water away from the foundation and prevent flooding. The homeowner also wanted a vapor barrier installed on the walls to stop moisture and water vapor from entering the basement. This moisture is then collected by the drainage system and filtered into the sump pump.
The New Haven homeowner is so glad his basement is now protected, and the value of his home restored.
Should I ventilate my crawl space? Is it okay that my crawl space is damp? Why does my home smell musty? How do I waterproof my crawl space? Is it worth it?
These are the questions our customers often ask before coming to us, including this New Haven homeowner. Their crawl space was damp and the musty smell was spreading through out the home. They had open vents that were allowing in moisture and humidity, as well as a dirt floor that was allowing ground water and water vapor in.
Our crawl space specialist answered all of the homeowner's questions and inspected the crawl space. We informed them that crawl spaces should be sealed and not vented, and if there's a dirt floor, a vapor barrier is needed to keep out moisture. That's why we encapsulated the crawl space with the CleanSpace system to solve this homeowner's problems. We installed the vapor barrier, a sump pump, and a dehumidifier to create a dry, clean crawl space.
Is it worth it though? YES! A dry home with clean air and no mold, mildew, or rot compromising the safety of the home is 100% worth it. It adds value to the home, and gives the homeowner peace of mind.
This homeowner in Sterling Heights, Michigan contacted HomeSpec to repair their basement which doubles as a living space. The walls would leak every time it rained, which would soak the carpet and drywall – causing expensive damage. Since the basement serves as a bedroom, living room, laundry room and storage room, the family was desperate to get the space repaired and waterproofed permanently.
HomeSpec saved the day by installed an interior drainage system (French Drain) around the perimeter of the basement. Then a Sump Pump was installed to pump the water far away from the home. To prevent costly water damage repairs in the future, we also installed our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring - a faux-wood waterproof flooring that looks great and protects the basement. Lastly, the walls were sealed with a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to direct leaks down into the drainage system, and block vapor and moisture from entering.
This homeowner in Warren, Michigan expressed their concerns to HomeSpec about water constantly flooding into their basement after rain. The water would slowly leak in through the joint where the floor and the walls meet until the entire basement was under an inch of water. He was sick and tired of cleaning the water up and throwing out damaged items, so he put his trust into HomeSpec.
Luckily for him, HomeSpec permanently waterproofs basement on a daily basis. We installed a French Drain System around the perimeter of the basement to capture water seepage, and then deposit it into his new TripleSafe Sump Pump. The walls were then sealed with a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to block moisture and water vapor leakage.
This system seals the basement tight and keeps it DRY!
This homeowner reached out to HomeSpec after discovering mold and moisture in their crawl space. The mold was causing health issues for their family and they were very concerned. After removing the mold, they wanted to encapsulate the crawl space to ensure this wouldn't happen again.
HomeSpec was able to encapsulate the crawl space by sealing the walls and floor with a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. This blocks moisture and water vapor from entering. Then a SaniDry Dehumidifier was installed to drain into the sump pump. This conditions the air and makes sure the relative humidity does not surpass 55% – preventing mold growth.
This was extremely reassuring to the homeowner who was worried about the safety of their family inside their own home. Now their crawl space is dry and healthy!
