This homeowner contacted HomeSpec after she bought a home with severe foundation issues, including a wall that was cracked from top to bottom and bowing - and ultimately at risk of collapsing. 

Our team of experts straightened the wall and pushed it back into place. It was waterproofed from the outside, and the cracks were repaired with our polyurethane sealant then reinforced by power grids on the inside. The walls were permanently stabilized by a carbon fiber system and a power brace system to prevent movement in the future. 

This homeowner is now so happy and ready to enjoy her new home knowing her basement is stable and dry.

As you can see from the photo, Elaina K. in Southfield, Michigan was dealing with a wet and muddy crawl space - which is why she called HomeSpec to have it waterproofed and encapsulated!

Project Manager Mark Buhr developed a repair that would best suit Elaina's needs. Jon Davis and his crew installed The SmartPipe™ Drainage System made for crawl spaces, and connected it to a brand new sump pump with a powerful Zoeller Pump inside. This system will collect water and funnel it away from the foundation. They then sealed the floor and walls with our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to block moisture from entering. 

Our crew also installed SmartJack Support Posts in the crawl space to stop the floors above from sagging. This Southfield homeowner now has a dry, healthy crawl space thanks to the team at HomeSpec!

Nothing is more stressful than finding water in your partially finished basement. That's what happened to these homeowners in Southfield, Michigan. After a few days of heavy rain, they discovered moisture in their basement. After removing a few wall panels, they found leaking cracks and rod holes, AND water seeping from the floor/wall joint. This is when they called the experts at HomeSpec.

Project manager David Kingsley went out and inspected their issues. He informed the homeowners that an interior drainage system with a new, high-capacity sump pump would waterproof the basement for good. The homeowners wished to fully finish the basement, and never wanted to stress about water intrusion again – so they were excited about a waterproofing system! 

Foreman Jerry Blevins and his crew got to work. They installed the WaterGuard Perimeter Drainage System connected to a TripleSafe Sump Pump. Together, these collect water before it leaks into the basement, and funnel it away from the home. A SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was installed to filter the air and keep the relative humidity at a healthy 55%. 

Now these homeowners can finish their basement and don't have to worry about water damage.

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

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 Oakland 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.

Professional Installers of Gutters & Gutter Guards in Southfield & Nearby

At HomeSpec BasementFix, we know that poorly constructed gutters can negatively impact a home inside and out.

Job Stories From Southfield, MI
Southfield, Mi Wet Basement Water Leaks Solved with Simple Crack Repair Injection

A Southfield, Michigan resident had a leaky basement wall that was letting water through during heavy rains. It appeared to be coming in where the wall and floor meet in her partially finished basement, along the concrete foundation. They needed to find a basement crack repair and waterproofing contractor to take a closer look and determine how best to address the situation. We sent our project manager Mark as our representative of choice. Mark closely listened to the homeowners concerns and guided her through his inspection process to make sure there was a mutual understanding of each step as he investigated the possible causes and extent of the water damage. Thankfully, it appeared the main cause to be the aforementioned crack itself, meaning more involved basement waterproofing would be recommended in the future, but not required.

 

Our crew was able to quickly fill and address the crack with a high-pressure urethane crack injection. This seals the crack and prevents water from leaking through. The process is quick, easy, and permanent. It was such a fluid process with immediate results that the homeowner was surprised by the simple solution to a problem that had been haunting this home with wet basement problems for weeks.

Southfield, Mi Basement Waterproofing w/ WaterGuard and Humidifier Installed

Water leaking into basements, is never ideal. A Southfield, Mi homeowner purchased her home over two years ago. In that time, she has been dealing with a basement that has water seeping up through the floor. The moisture damaged the carpeting and limited how she could use her basement. She wanted to originally convert the basement into a livable space and had basement waterproofing done by a third-party company. However, the third party's systems failed within a year and left her back to square one with water coming in around the floor, and walls. She needed a basement waterproofing contractor near Southfield that would prove to be credible and reliable to solve this wet basement problem once and for all.          

                                     

HomeSpec Basementfix’s Dave Kingsley was happy to be of service. Dave listened to her grievances about her previous problems and made sure to walk her through the entire inspection process to ensure all parties were educated and on the same page. With a proper understanding of the situation, Dave proposed two main installations, the WaterGuard drainage system, and the Sanidry Sedona Basement Dehumidifier.       

                                                 

The WaterGuard drainage system would be the perfect fit solution for this problem. WaterGuard is a customizable piping system engineered specifically to solve basement water problems without worry of clogging. WaterGuard has a special wall flange that creates space between the floor and wall, allowing wall seepage to drain away seamlessly to the designated basin. Adjusting to the perimeter of the basement to tackle the problem at the source. The humidifier was for a quality-of-life finish. The SaniDry Sedona system, a size-efficient solution that is small enough to fit in as a crawlspace dehumidifier as well as basements, while being strong enough to dry large areas at a lower cost than other dehumidifiers on the market. The SaniDry system allows for automatic drainage - so there’s no need to empty the reservoir, and is capable of humidity sensing as well, meaning it’ll automatically shut off when desired levels are met, while filtering harmful irritants. The Sedona allows for a long-lasting, yet low maintenance solution.                   

                            

Following up with the homeowner two weeks later, we learned she was incredibly satisfied with her new basement waterproofing, and dehumidifier, and was planning to start renovating her basement the following month! Happy she chose the correct basement waterproofing, and crawl space repair contractor, this time, for a long-lasting ideal solution to all her problems.
