HomeSpec was contacted by a soon-to-be new homeowner who was concerned about foundation issues with the house he wanted to buy. Our team found that the basement walls were leaning inward, and water was getting into the basement.

I-beams were placed on the walls to stabilize them, and an interior drainage system was installed.

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

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 Waterproofing and Foundation Repair also offers complete concrete repair services that restore and protect concrete inside and outside of your Wayne 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 Southgate, MI
Homeowner in the Process of Finishing Basement Gets WaterGuard Installed to Prevent any Damage in Southgate, MI

A homeowner in Southgate, MI had always dreamed of having a fully finished basement, a place where they could entertain guests, set up a cozy home theater, and create a play area for their children. With this vision in mind, they embarked on the exciting journey of finishing the basement. As they began the transformation process, they encountered an unexpected hurdle. While inspecting the basement walls, they discovered a few troublesome cracks and, to their dismay, a small hole that was causing water to seep through and pool on the floor. Concerned about the potential damage and the risk it posed to the basement, they knew they needed to contact a waterproofing company. After conducting extensive research and seeking advice from friends and professionals, they came across us. After reading some of the reviews, they wasted no time and reached out to us, explaining the situation and scheduling a consultation.

The next day, we sent an experienced Project Manager to the home. He began the free, detailed inspection of their basement by inspecting cracks and taking a closer look at the leaking hole. Once he confirmed his findings, he discussed them with the homeowner. He explained to the homeowner that the best solution for their basement was to install the WaterGuard Drainage System. This french drain system would effectively collect and redirect water away from the basement, preventing any further leakage and ensuring the longevity of their space.

First, our crew prepared the basement floor by excavating a small trench along the perimeter walls. This excavation allowed them to create a path for the WaterGuard Drainage System, ensuring it would collect any water that seeped through the walls or floor. Next, our crew cleaned and sealed the cracks in the basement walls, ensuring that no water could penetrate the surface in the future. They also applied a specialized sealant to the small hole, guaranteeing that it would no longer serve as an entry point for water. With the preparation complete, our crew began installing the WaterGuard Drainage System. They carefully placed the specially designed drainage channels into the excavated trench, ensuring a perfect fit against the walls.  Once the WaterGuard was securely in place, our crew backfilled the trench with clean gravel. This provided a sturdy and efficient foundation for the drainage system, allowing water to flow freely towards the designated sump pump area.

With the WaterGuard Drainage System in place, this homeowner's basement became a safe and dry haven, free from any worries of water damage or mold growth. They were happy to return to their renovation project with the peace of mind that water damage would not affect the outcome.

Sinking Porch Restored back to Original Level with Helical Support System in Southgate, MI

A family in Southgate, MI had been noticing the porch they just rebuilt was separating from the house, concerned that the crack would affect the basement if they did not address the root of the problem, the family began looking for the best foundation repair contractors nearby. Their search led them to contact HomeSpec BasementFix as the foundation repair specialist for this project.

A Project Manager with experience in foundation repair was called to the residence to provide a free detailed inspection and address the homeowners concerns. After taking a look at the crack between the house and the porch, he explained that sinking foundations can be caused by shifting soils that are no longer able to support the weight of the foundation. This happens over time, and if not addressed properly, can cause structural damage to the home and lead to a loss in property value. Our Project Manager proposed the Helical Pier Support System as the best way forward for this family and their foundation settlement problems.

This homeowner needed their porch raised back to level and the Helical Pier Support System helped stabilize this home by connecting to the foundation with steel brackets. The weight is then transferred from unstable soils to newer, load-bearing soils, through the piers, bringing it back to proper level. The welded helical plates are designed not to add weight to the unstable soils or crack under the weight of the foundation; this solution addressed the root cause of their foundation issue and in return, caused the homeowners to regain their peace of mind. 

With the foundation successfully restored, and these homeowners' fears put to rest, they were pleased with the professional work done by our crew.
