This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because the structural support in her crawl space was failing severely - causing the floors above to sag and creating a hazard. No one wants to live with bouncy floors!

To solve this problem, our crew installed SmartJack support posts throughout the crawl space. We also installed supplemental beams, replaced and sistered the joists, and replaced the old shims with steel plate shims. Then we encapsulated the crawl space with the CleanSpace vapor barrier and vent covers.

Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in Monroe

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 Monroe 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 Monroe, MI
Basement Flooding and Wall Cracks Solved with SuperSump Sump Pump and CarbonFiber PowerGrid in Monroe, MI

A homeowner with an unfinished basement in Monroe, MI was using the space as extra storage for their home, when water first started leaking through the large vertical crack in the wall, the homeowner just started moving the valuable items to higher ground. Eventually it got to the point where the basement water was beginning to seep into all the belongings from below and the homeowner was ready to address the problem once and for all. After doing some research into the best basement waterproofing contractors nearby, this homeowner contacted HomeSpec BasementFix for the repair.

 

Dave, a Project Manager with experience in basement waterproofing, was called to Monroe in order to further understand this homeowner's concerns and perform a free, detailed inspection. While talking with the homeowner, it was brought to the attention of our Project Manager that they feared the cracks could continue to spread if left unattended and cause more water leaks, damaging all the belongings and causing a multitude of future problems for the house. During his inspection, our Project Manager also noted how the floors above were uneven and this could be a sign of the water damage causing the support beams to become weakened. Dave understood the struggle of this homeowner and recommended the CarbonFiber PowerGrid in addition to a High Pressure Urethane Crack injection to fill the crack, a SuperSump Sump Pump to solve the water flooding the basement and the SmartJack support System to bring the floors back to level. 

 

The first thing our crew had to address during the basement waterproofing project was the bucking walls and the large crack. To solve this successfully our crew would begin by installing a CarbonFiber PowerGrid consisting of digging slits along the cracks and filling them with carbon-fiber plates to prevent any further spread. The next step in installing this basement waterproofing system was to seal the crack with High Powered Urethane Crack Injection and install the SuperSump Sump Pump. The SuperSump is a sump pump capable of expelling up to 2,200 gallons of water, ensuring this homeowner's basement was kept dry and protected from flooding in the future. Lastly, the SmartJack support System was installed to bring structural integrity back to the water damaged floors that had begin to sag, with the ability to support loads over 60,000 lbs., the Smartjack is more than capable of bringing this homeowner's floors back to level and preventing them from sagging again. 

 

With the basement waterproofing system completely installed and the walls prevented from bowing or buckling, this homeowner had the option to finish the basement with their fear of a future flooding problem put to rest.

 

Sagging Floors and Leaking Basement Solved with SmartJack Support System and SmartSump Sump Pump

 

 

 

A brother and sister duo in Monroe, MI had recently acquired their parents home and were looking to renovate the basement into an extra living space for the family. They had previously noted some of the floors in the home were sagging, which led them to believe they would need to contact a crawl space repair contractor before starting any renovations. A neighbor who recently had basement waterproofing done recommended HomeSpec BasementFix as the best option for crawl space repairs.

Jesse, who had solved a number of crawl space repair problems, was called to the property to provide a free detailed inspection and review the homeowners concerns. Sagging floors can be attributed to a failing crawl space support system a majority of the time. A humid crawl space can lead traditional wooden supports to rot and when these supports fail, the floors begin to sag, causing uncomfortable living conditions for the family. During the inspection, Jesse also observed puddles in the crawl space, which led them to believe there was also a crawl space waterproofing problem that needed to be solved to prevent future possible damage as well. This led our Project Manager to propose a custom solution for these homeowners that involved the SmartJack Support System to raise the floors and a SmartSump Sump Pump to drain the water away from the crawl space.

In order to address the sagging floors, our crew would have to enter the 3 foot high crawl space and install the crawl space support jacks. The SmartJack Support System is engineered with galvanized steel rods to prevent moisture in the crawl space from causing damage to the support jacks. The adjustable nature of the SmartJack allows it to be adjusted year-round to meet the needs of the home as they see fit. With the ability to support over 60,000 lbs., the SmartJack support system is an ideal solution for this home's sagging floors. The next problem addressed in this repair was the sump pump drainage system in the crawlspace. The SmartSump Sump Pump is specifically designed for crawl spaces and is capable of pumping 2,500 gallons of water per hour to provide all the protection these homeowners need from leaks and floods.

With the floors raised back to level, and the crawl space leaks addressed, the brother and sister were ready to begin their renovations, knowing they had found an effective solution to their problems with HomeSpec BasementFix.
