Everyone dreams of having a beautiful cottage on the lake to escape to every summer. These homeowners loved their vacation home in the quiet town of Otter Lake, Michigan. But on a recent visit, they noticed a musty smell coming from the basement - and they found water pooled on the floor. 

They decided to call around get estimates for the repair, but ultimately chose HomeSpec to waterproof the basement. Our experts proposed a WaterGuard Below Floor Drain connected to a TripleSafe sump pump - a powerful system that can pump out over 2,000 gallons of water from the basement every hour. 

Since the homeowners don't live in the cottage year-round, we also suggested installing a sump pump alarm. A battery-operated alarm alerts you when water is rising in the sump basin, but the pumps haven't turned on. This allows you to figure out what the problem is, potentially preventing the flooding that would have occurred had you not known the pump was not working properly.

The drainage system was installed around the perimeter of the basement and connected to the sump pump with the alarm. Since the homeowners spend months away from the cottage at a time, they are so relieved that they don't have to worry about their basement while they're away.

Concrete Repair & Leveling Professional Serving Otter Lake

Leveling Uneven Concrete in Otter Lake

Our team uses PolyLevel® to level sinking concrete in Otter Lake.

HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair also offers complete concrete repair services that restore and protect concrete inside and outside of your Otter Lake home, including concrete driveways and sidewalks. Our innovative concrete sealant permanently bonds with one application to protect new and old concrete against UV rays and moisture for long-lasting protection.

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 Otter Lake, MI
Cracked Concrete Driveway PolyLeveled in Otter Lake, MI

This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because the concrete driveway slabs at his new home were cracked and sinking - overall an eyesore. HomeSpec used the cost-effective, non-abrasive method called PolyLevel to repair the concrete.

The sunken slabs were raised and leveled by injecting a rigid foam below the concrete to fill in the gaps caused by soil erosion. Then the cracks were filled with the NexusPro joint sealant. The homeowner was very pleased he didn't have to replace the entire driveway, and was able to easily repair it instead with PolyLevel.
