"I'm so tired of cleaning up a wet basement. Help."

That's what Scott F. in Royal Oak, Michigan said when he contacted HomeSpec. Water had been seeping into his basement whenever it rained and he needed a long-term repair – so that's what we gave him. 

Foreman Blake Dushefski and his crew installed a WaterGuard Drainage System, also referred to as a French Drain. This was connected to a TripleSafe Sump Pump which can pump out 2,000+ gallons of water per hour. This system installs below the floor around the perimeter of the basement to gather any water coming into the basement, then deposits it into the sump pump to be directed away from the home. This is the most efficient way to waterproof a basement from the interior. 

Scott was so excited to have a dry basement for the first time ever – and the system even held up against the record rainfall and flooding that occurred recently, which made him very happy.

In Royal Oak, MI, a newly married couple bought their first home together. Within the first week of moving into the home, they noticed a musty smell that would not go away and that the floors were always cold. They decided to take a look at their new crawl space but quickly realized that it was only new to them. The crawl space was littered with debris and mold. It was a task they wanted experienced professionals to tackle, so they called HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair.

A senior project manager, Zach, did an inspection to determine the best course of action. He suggested insulating the crawl space with SilverGlo™ to address the cold floors and encapsulating it with CleanSpace® to fight the moisture. He also made the recommendations to fight the mold using Mold-X2 and creating a waterproof seal with an EverLast™ crawl space door. These multiple solutions reassured the homeowners and they agreed to all of the repairs with HomeSpec. They were installed by a team led by foreman Jon. Now when the couple needs to investigate their crawl space, they no longer see dirt, leaves, and other debris. They see a clean, dry, usable space.

Job Stories From Royal Oak, MI
Homeowner who Wants To Turn Basement Into Rental Space Has WaterGuard installed to Fix Water Ingress

A homeowner in Royal Oak MI had been grappling with a persistent and frustrating issue in their home. Water had been seeping into the basement, precisely where the floor and wall meet, causing recurring dampness and damage. Fed up with the relentless water intrusion and its consequences, The homeowner was determined to find a lasting solution. However, they didn't want this challenge to stand in the way of their ambitions. They had envisioned converting the basement into a profitable rental property, but the water issue needs to be addressed before they can make that project a reality. The homeowners journey to a dry and rent-ready basement began when they reached out to our team of experts for assistance. Upon analyzing their situation, we understood the urgency of the matter and proposed a comprehensive solution to tackle both the water intrusion problem and this homeowner's aspiration of turning the basement into a rental property.


The first step in our solution was to prevent further water from entering the basement. We recommended the installation of WaterGuard, an interior drainage system. WaterGuard works by capturing water that seeps into the basement and channeling it away from the foundation, preventing it from reaching the basement floor. This solution effectively addresses the issue of water coming in at the juncture of the floor and wall. To install the system, our crew excavated a trench around the perimeter of the basement's interior and placed the WaterGuard drainage system within it. This system is designed with a unique profile that keeps it away from dirt and debris, ensuring its efficiency over time. The system was then connected to a sump pump, creating a reliable pathway for the water to be safely removed from the basement. To further enhance the waterproofing system, we installed the TripleSafe sump pump system. This three-pump system provides three levels of protection against water intrusion. The primary pump efficiently removes water from the basement, while the secondary pump serves as a backup in case the primary one fails. Additionally, a third pump, equipped with a battery backup, ensures the system's functionality even during power outages, offering this homeowner peace of mind and security. To address the visible aftermath of water damage was equally important to this homeowner. Restoring the appearance of the basement while maintaining its dryness was paramount to this homeowner, so we introduced the Everlast Wall Restoration System. This system not only beautifies the walls but also serves as a barrier against moisture and humidity, ensuring that this homeowners basement remains an appealing and comfortable living space for potential renters.


With the work completed, the homeowner now stands on the threshold of a new chapter, ready to welcome tenants into a basement that is not only dry and problem-free but also a source of steady income. Our crew's dedication to solving this water ingress had paved the way for their investment aspirations to become a reality.


Homeowners in Royal Oak, MI With Bowing Walls and Dampness get PowerBrace and CleanSpace Installed

A homeowner in Royal Oak, MI had been facing multiple issues in their basement. First, it was the wall bowing inward which was causing them concern about the structural integrity of the basement. Then, the water issues started. Water had been leaking onto their basement floor, causing dampness damaging their valuables they had kept down there. Finally realizing it was not worth the hassle to keep mopping up the floor and worrying about the wall collapsing, they reached out to us for a professional solution to their problem.


When our Project Manager arrived and assessed their basement thoroughly, he recommended they have a full waterproofing solution installed. First, they would need a PowerBrace to stabilize the bowing wall, Then they would need to cover the wall with CleanSpace, a vapor barrier that prevents moisture from building up. Then we recommended the SuperSump Plus sump pump and the SaniDry -Sedona Dehumidifier to handle the dampness. 


Our crew started the project by preparing the basement walls for the installation of the PowerBrace. They secured the zinc-plated steel beams to the walls using steel brackets. This process provided stabilization and the potential for gradual wall straightening over time by tightening the steel brackets. Next, they installed the SuperSump Plus system in the lowest point in the basement. They made sure to excavate a small portion of the basement floor, creating a suitable pit for the sump pump. Then the WaterWatch alarm system was installed to it for added safety. After the sump pump installation, our crew proceeded to install the CleanSpace Wall barrier. The mold resistant barrier was cut to fit the dimensions of the homeowners basement walls and carefully attached, ensuring complete coverage. The seams were sealed to create a vapor barrier, preventing moisture penetration. Finally, to address the dampness, our crew installed the SaniDry -Sedona Dehumidifier, the energy efficient design helps control humidity levels and improves the overall air quality. 


Now that the homeowner had a complete waterproofing solution that fit their homes needs, they could rest easier knowing their basement was protected and the structure secure. 

Homeowner in Royal Oak, MI Looking to Add Value to Their Property has Egress Window Installed

A homeowner in Royal Oak, MI had been contemplating selling their house for some time. They had always wanted to make some upgrades to the home before putting it on the market, but weren't quite sure what would give them the most value for their investment. After doing some research, they realized that installing an egress window in the basement could significantly increase the resale value of the property. However, they were also experiencing some issues with moisture seeping into the basement which was causing the paint to peel and mold to grow. They knew that these problems had to be addressed before they could move forward with any other improvements to the home. This led them to reach out to us and schedule an appointment. 

After a thorough inspection of his basement by one of our qualified Project Managers, he recommended installing the WaterGuard Drainage System to redirect any water away from the home's foundation. This system would prevent any future moisture issues, keeping the basement dry and free of mold. To address the peeling paint and mold problems, he also suggested installing BrightWall in the basement. This waterproof and mold-resistant wall paneling would not only solve the current issues but also prevent future ones and increase the value of their property. 

Finally, our crew would install the egress window that the homeowner had requested. This would provide additional natural light and ventilation to the basement, making it a more attractive living space for potential buyers.

Overall, our crew was able to provide a solution to all of their problems, from the moisture issues to the installation of the egress window, the WaterGuard Drainage System, BrightWall, and egress window all worked together to set this homeowner up with the best possible addition to their home, making it a more appealing option for potential buyers.
