Basement Waterproofing Solutions & Crawl Space Repair Services in Michigan

Whether you have sudden basement flooding or gradual moisture accumulation, water in your basement can encourage the growth of mold and mildew, reduce the air quality of your home, and cause widespread moisture damage.

  • Perimeter drainage systems
  • Doorway drainage systems
  • Waterproof wall and floor products

Job Stories From Sterling Heights, MI
Sterling Heights, Mi Basement Cracks and Rod Holes Repaired, Basement Deumidifer Installed

 

A longtime homeowner in Sterling Heights, Mi, had been left incredibly frustrated by what they thought were 2 cracks they sealed themselves last year, which have since turned into 3 leaking cracks. The basement water damage had devastated their carpet over time, to the point it was affecting their air quality and general health.

 

Looking for a reliable basement crack repair contractor near Sterling Heights to properly handle the problem once and for all. Dave, met with the homeowner and examined the previous cracks as well as the newly formed one. During his home inspection process, Dave discovered that the water leaking into the basement wasn't just caused by the cracks, but also to a couple of rod holes at a different end of the basement. Our crew got to work addressing the known cracks first. These 3 cracks were filled with a high-pressure urethane crack injection, and a carbon fiber power grid was installed in slits along the cracks to ensure they wouldn't continue to spread in the future. Next, our crew tended to the discovered leaking rod holes by first plugging the holes using hydrophobic polyurethane grout, a material that would expand and repel water. The holes were then filled with a special water stop foam injection before another application of the grout was used to ensure an air-tight seal. The entire job was neatly finished and cleaned to ensure a visually appealing repair job.

 

However, the job didn’t stop there. We needed to ensure the family’s long-term well-being and comfort. So, after a discussion and explaining the benefits of a basement humidifier with the homeowner, our crew finished by installing the Sanidry-Sedona basement humidifier. An incredibly powerful resource for any home and compact enough to double as a crawl space humidifier if needed. With high energy efficiency and automatic drainage, this was a set-it-and-forget-it solution that brought peace of mind to the homeowner, who was ecstatic to quickly see the health benefits.

Sterling Heights, MI Hidden Basement Cracks and Rod Holes Found

A Sterling Heights, Mi homeowner had a leak from an unknown source causing regular wet basement problems. The idea of coming home constantly to water in the basement, is understandably upsetting. Try as he might, he just couldn't find the cause of the leak. He reached out to HomeSpec for help understanding his situation.

 

Ben Gabowitz was happy to hear out all of his concerns and conduct a thorough inspection into the cause. After removing a small amount of dry wall and running a small experiment, where he let a hose run outside for a few minutes, Ben noticed that water was flowing out from behind a stud. From there it was simple for Ben to find the rod holes causing the problem.

 

Rod holes are formed when the foundation of the basement was originally poured during construction of the home, metal rods were used to hold the forms together until the concrete had cured. At which point the rods were removed, leaving holes to be filled with balls of hydraulic cement. These fillings, however, are prone to wear and tear, and often can lead to leaks during rainy weather over time.

 

The homeowner was a bit of a handyman himself, so Ben was happy to sit down and explain in detail how best to address the situation within his own personal means.

 

The homeowner was struck by Ben's authenticity in handling his problem of having his basement crack and rod holes leaking water behind the walls, that he would go on to review:

 

 

I never wrote a review before but today I felt like I had to. We had a water leak in our basement that we couldn't find where it was coming from. Ben Gabowitz came just to evaluate the situation. Not only did he find the leak, he explained how to fix it and took the time to make sure I was satisfied. He was very professional, friendly, knowledgeable and honest. I am definitely keeping his card for any future problems and will be giving his name to friends and family.”

Basement Living Space Waterproofed and Repaired in Sterling Heights, MI

This homeowner in Sterling Heights, Michigan contacted HomeSpec to repair their basement which doubles as a living space. The walls would leak every time it rained, which would soak the carpet and drywall – causing expensive damage. Since the basement serves as a bedroom, living room, laundry room and storage room, the family was desperate to get the space repaired and waterproofed permanently. 

HomeSpec saved the day by installed an interior drainage system (French Drain) around the perimeter of the basement. Then a Sump Pump was installed to pump the water far away from the home. To prevent costly water damage repairs in the future, we also installed our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring - a faux-wood waterproof flooring that looks great and protects the basement. Lastly, the walls were sealed with a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to direct leaks down into the drainage system, and block vapor and moisture from entering.
