These homeowners live on a lake in Chesterfield, Michigan and have a crawl space that often floods. This is a common problem with lakeside homes since they're so close to the water. After the most recent flood, their only two sump pumps died (after not being able to handle the high amount of water), and their vapor barrier was ruined. 

To give these homeowners peace of mind, our crew of professionals installed drainage matting and a vapor barrier to encapsulate and waterproof the crawl space. We also installed two new sump pumps - powerful enough to discharge thousands of gallons of water per hour. This system will prevent flooding and control the high water levels near the lake, so these homeowners can relax and enjoy their beautiful home!

Amy C. in New Baltimore, Michigan contacted HomeSpec because she knew she had problems in her crawl space. The floors above would sag which indicated that she needed better support. The old insulation and vapor barrier were failing to do their jobs, so they needed to be upgraded as well to keep out moisture and cold air. 

Project manager Chris Baltovich conducted an inspection of the crawl space and developed a plan for repair. Soon after Amy approved, foreman Jon Davis and his crew got to work. They encapsulated the crawl space with the CleanSpace System to seal off from moisture, air leaks, and water intrusion. Brand new vent covers were also installed. A SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was installed to manage the humidity and maintain it at a healthy 55%. 

To solve the support issues, our SmartJack Support Posts were installed to level and stabilize the foundation. To prevent further settlement, these are installed on a sturdy base for a permanent solution. 

Amy was so pleased with the crew and so happy with her dry, clean and healthy crawl space!

Expert Foundation Repair, Concrete Repair, & Concrete Leveling Services in New Baltimore

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 Macomb 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 New Baltimore, MI
Sinking Patio Foundation Solved with Helical Pier Support System in Chesterfield, MI

Adding a patio to the home can increase its property value, which is exactly what this family in Chesterfield, MI, had in mind when they built it. Unfortunately, not long after its construction, they began to notice how it slanted too much to one side. Not wanting to have their home lose value, they came to the conclusion that it was time to address the root of the problem. After a search for foundation repair nearby, they were directed to HomeSpec BasementFix as the foundation repair contractors best fit for this job.

Ted, our Project Manager, who had prior experience with sinking foundations, was called out to do a free inspection of the property and address the homeowners concerns in more detail. Ted explained to the owners that over time, the soils beneath the patio can shift, causing a void that the concrete foundation sinks into. This can be due to many reasons, such as too much moisture causing soils to wash out completely, or if the soil is too dry, it can crumble under the weight. Understanding the need for the homeowners to restore property value and return the patio to its original condition, Ted laid out a solution for the family that involved the Helical Pier Support System to add structural integrity back into the foundation.

The Helical Pier Support System gets its name from the helical plates welded to the shaft of the pier. These plates act as a screw, digging deeper into more competent load bearing soils in order to transfer the weight of the foundation from the weaker soil. Helical Piers are an ideal solution for this foundation repair because its permanent nature anchors the foundation to the newer load bearing soils, allowing for the structural integrity to remain intact. Due to the specifically designed helical plates, advancing the piers deeper into the ground does not add weight to weaker soils, allowing it to reach bedrock if needed without compromising the strength or integrity of the support system. 

The Helical Pier Support System provided results the family could see firsthand and were more than happy to recommend HomeSpec BasementFix to friends in need of foundation repair.

Sinking Foundation Solved with Helical Piers and PowerBrace Wall support in Chesterfield, MI

While approaching their home in Chesterfield, MI, the homeowner noticed that something didn't look right. After a closer look, they realized the home was sinking from left to right. The homeowner thought back to when they had an inspection from HomeSpec 10 years ago, and decided not to address their foundation repair problems at that time. Now the issues had compiled to the point it could no longer be avoided, including a severely sinking foundation. They decided to reach back out to HomeSpec BasementFix again, this time, with the intention of having this issue fully resolved once and for all.

Project Manager Mark, who had experience with foundation settlement repair, was sent to the home to provide an inspection, free of charge. While discussing concerns with the homeowner, it was brought to our attention that the back wall was showing signs of tipping. After explaining to the homeowner that weak foundation soils can be washed out completely by rain or shrink due to dry conditions, the weight of the foundation can no longer be structurally supported and this is what causes it to sink and settle. This movement of soil from the surface can cause the foundation to sink into the void left by the soil, and eventually fail. The homeowner, having not realized the gravity of the situation, requested that our project manager come up with a solution as soon as possible. This is what led Mark to propose a custom solution that involved our Helical Pier Support System to raise the foundation and our PowerBrace Wall Support System to bring structural integrity back into the walls. 

The first step in this foundation repair was for our crew to install the Helical Support System. Helical plates are welded to the galvanized steel piers which act as a screw and dig deep into the ground. Helical piers permanently stabilize the foundation from further settlement and in this case, raise it back to level. The piers are advanced to the appropriate depth without disturbing the weaker unstable soils, allowing the weight of the foundation to be transferred, through the piers, to more capable load bearing soil. Combined with the steel brackets that attach to the home, helical piers present a permanent solution to prevent this homeowners foundation from sinking. The next step in this foundation settlement repair was for our crew to install the PowerBrace Wall Support System. The PowerBrace stops the wall from tilting by installing steel beams that are secured to the beams above using brackets. The PowerBrace is a minimally invasive solution that is adjustable to meet the needs of the home over time. 

With the home successfully leveled and the foundation wall supported, this homeowner was relieved to have HomeSpec BasementFix provide an excellent solution to their problems.
