Job Stories From Taylor, MI
Family in Taylor, MI Has Crawl Space Encapsulated with CleanSpace

A homeowner in Taylor, MI with two growing children and a deep sense of attachment to their space, had noticed an issue that demanded their attention. Their home's crawl space, accessed from the exterior, was causing some concern. While the crawlspace had a height of over 2 feet and featured a concrete block foundation, it had been accumulating an excessive amount of moisture. This moisture buildup had given rise to carpet beetles. These pests were finding their way into the home, posing a threat to the family's health and the quality of their living environment. While the Johnsons didn't notice any musty smells, they knew that the excess moisture could lead to potential issues in the future. They also understood that a damp crawl space could contribute to inefficiencies in their home's heating and cooling systems. Driven by their dedication to ensuring a healthy and comfortable living space, the homeowners recognized that addressing the moisture was the next project on their list. After doing some research into basement repair companies nearby, they came across us at HomeSpec.


When our Project Manager arrived at the home to perform the initial inspection, he immediately noticed the cause of the damp and musty crawl space was the lack of any insulation/protection. This is where he recommended that the family have CleanSpace installed. CleanSpace is an encapsulation system designed to transform damp, mold-prone crawl spaces into dry, clean, and energy-efficient areas. The product's thick, durable liner acts as a moisture barrier, preventing water vapor from seeping through the walls and floor. It also provides an airtight seal, which helps maintain a consistent temperature throughout the home, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills.


Our crew began this project by assessing the condition of the crawlspace, examining the moisture levels, and potential entry points for pests. Next, to prepare the crawlspace for the CleanSpace installation, our crew addressed any existing moisture issues, such as water leaks or drainage problems. They also cleared the area of debris and cleaned the surfaces for proper adhesion. Finally, the star of the show – CleanSpace – was installed throughout the crawlspace. Our crew laid down the durable liner, carefully sealing the seams and edges to create a complete barrier against moisture and pests. This step was crucial in safeguarding the crawlspace against the carpet beetle infestation that had been troubling the family. Once the installation was complete, our crew ensured proper ventilation by installing vent covers to regulate airflow. Additionally, they inspected the insulation and repaired or replaced it as needed to further enhance energy efficiency.


The transformation was remarkable. The Homeowners crawlspace, once plagued by moisture and pests, was now fortified against both. With CleanSpace in place, they could rest easy, knowing that their home was not only more comfortable but also better protected against potential issues. The carpet beetles were no longer infiltrating their living space, and the Family was on track to enjoy lower utility bills due to improved energy efficiency.


Familly in Taylor, MI has CleanSpace and TrenchDrain installed to combat Water Damage

A family in Ann Arbor, MI was experiencing a persistent water problem that was preventing them from storing their valuables in the basement. Located on the garage side of the house, their basement had a poured concrete foundation, however, water had been seeping into their basement through two main areas: a vertical crack on one wall and the floor joint where the floor and wall met. The consistent water damage made it impossible for them to use the basement in the way they wanted to, and they were beginning to grow even more concerned about mold growth if the problem persisted any longer. With plans to sell their home in around three years, they reached out to us for help.

After inspecting the family's basement and discussing their goals, our Project Manager determined the best course of action for this family would be to install the Waterguard Drainage System, The CleanSpace Wall System and the TrenchDrain to address their specific issues. 

To begin the waterproofing process for this family, our crew started by carefully excavating a narrow trench along the perimeter of the floor, right against the walls of the basement. The WaterGuard system consists of a specialized drain pipe with built-in channels that collect water and direct it away from the basement. They made sure to position the WaterGuard in such a way that it intercepted the water entering through the vertical crack. Next, our crew addressed the water seepage at the floor-to-wall joint by installing the CleanSpace Wall System. This acts as a vapor barrier, preventing moisture from entering the basement while also creating a cleaner and more attractive space. The CleanSpace Wall System is made of a durable liner that completely covers the basement walls, transforming their space into a clean and bright environment. Lastly, we tackled their problem of water accumulating near the garage by installing a TrenchDrain. This is specifically designed to capture surface water, such as melting snow or rainwater runoff, and divert it away from their basement. 

By addressing the vertical crack and the floor-to-wall joint, our crew eliminated the sources of water seepage and significantly reduced the risk of mold growth. The installation of the CleanSpace Wall not only prevented moisture from entering the basement but also created a clean and visually appealing space that this family could finally utilize and enjoy. Whether they chose to create additional living areas, a home gym, or a recreational space, This family was happy to have their peace of mind restored.

Homeowner with Finished Basement Experiencing Water Damage has Their fears Alleviated by Installing the WaterGuard System in Taylor, MI

A homeowner in Taylor, MI had been experiencing a recurring issue every time it rained heavily. Water would mysteriously seep into the basement where the floor met the walls, causing dampness and a musty smell. This was starting to ruin the overall ambience of their entertainment area, and they were determined to find a solution to this persistent problem. Although they had inspected the walls thoroughly, they couldn't identify any visible cracks or signs of leakage. The water intrusion seemed to originate from beneath the floor, leaving this homeowner puzzled and concerned about the potential damage it could cause in the future. After a while, they realized that simply drying the area after each rainfall wouldn't address the root cause and would only provide a temporary fix. They finally decided it was time to seek help to restore their basement to its former glory. After conducting some research, they came across our website, intrigued by our expertise they decided to contact us and schedule a consultation. 

Upon arriving at the home, our Project Manager inspected the basement thoroughly, taking note of the water entry points and evaluating the existing drainage system. He acknowledged the challenge posed by the finished walls, which made it difficult to identify the source of the water intrusion, and after carefully analyzing the basement's layout and discussing the homeowners concerns, he proposed a solution. He explained the best way forward for this situation would be to install the WaterGuard Drainage System. The WaterGuard would be installed discreetly beneath the basement floor, ensuring minimal disruption to their finished walls and flooring. This french drain system consisted of a specialized drainage channel that would be installed along the perimeter of the basement, intercepting any water seepage and channeling it to a sump pump for removal.

When our crew arrived on the day of installation, they began by carefully removing a small portion of the basement floor along the perimeter, making sure not to damage the walls in the basement. Then they installed the WaterGuard drainage channel, securely sealing it to the foundation walls to create a seamless and watertight barrier.

With the installation completed, our crew took extra time to ensure they restored the small portion of the basement floor they had removed, leaving no trace of the intervention. The homeowner was more than happy with the results and relieved they no longer had to worry about the smells or damage that rainstorms would cause in the past.

Sagging Crawl Space Beams Solved with SmartJack Support System in Troy, MI
A recent homeowner in Taylor, MI was trying to move furniture around the home when they noticed that some of the furniture was sloping to one side, this caused them concern and was preventing them from having peace of mind, wanting to address the problem before it got worse, this homeowner searched for crawl space repair nearby and contacted HomeSpec BasementFix. 

One of our Project Managers experienced in crawl space repair was sent to the home to further discuss and inform the homeowner of their current condition. After completing the inspection, and finding out the main beam was sagging, the project manager explained that a sagging beam could be caused by failing supports in the crawl space that are prone to sinking and shifting in the soil below. This led him to recommend the SmartJack Support System to this homeowner to raise that beam back to level and provide support back to the living space floors. 

The SmartJack Support System is specifically designed to support loads of up to 60,000 lbs. And paired with the base of engineered fill can safely and permanently support the floors above. The year-round adjustable nature of the SmartJack Support System allows the floors to be adjusted at any time, meeting the needs of the home and the homeowner throughout time

This recent homeowner was stressed out about their sagging beam turning into a future problem for them and was pleased to have the SmartJack Support System installed to future- proof their home.

Foundation Settlement Problem Solved with Helical Piers in Taylor, MI
After living at their home in Taylor, Mi, for a number of years, the homeowner was growing tired of what felt like an increasing amount of difficulty opening their garage door. Over the years, it was becoming more clear that this wasn't a simple door issue. The garage walls had cracks forming where the floor was separating and twisting away. Fearful for the integrity of the foundation, and not wanting to leave the headache to his kids when they eventually inherit the house, he began to look for foundation repair contractors nearby. The search led them to contact HomeSpec BasementFix as the best foundation contractors for the repair.

Chris, one of our Project Managers experienced in foundation settlement repair, was sent to the home to discuss the homeowners concerns and perform a detailed inspection of the property. Once he got a closer look at the floor twisting away from the wall in the garage, and also noted that a section of the garage had sunken approximately 3 inches over the years, Chris understood this to be a settlement issue. If left for long periods of time, foundation settlement can cause the floors to sink, make doors hard to open or close, and can even lead to cracks in the walls. After explaining his findings, he proposed a solution for the foundation repair that included NexusPro to seal the crack between the foundation and the wall, as well as a Helical Pier Support System to bring the foundation back to level.

Our Helical Pier Support System was used in this foundation repair to transfer the weight of the garage through new structurally sound foundation piers. Helical Piers work by screwing the helical plates attached to the pier deep into newer load bearing soils acting as an anchor. In order to best service the concrete foundation repair in this situation, NexusPro, a silicone based, weather-resistant solution that is more effective than traditional caulking, was used. NexusPro is UV resistant, which allows it to maintain its flexible structure throughout the year.
With the foundation brought back to level, and the crack successfully sealed, the homeowner's needs were met and the foundation repair completed.
Family in Taylor, Mi Maximizes Home Resale Value with Crawl Space Encapsulation

A family in Taylor, Mi was trying to sell their home, but kept getting lower offers due to the state of their crawl space, deducting from the value. It's not that there was any standing water in the crawl space, but there was a lot of debris, sheet metal, and nothing to separate the dirt ground from the rest of the house. This became extra prevalent because of the relatively easily accessible nature of their particular crawl space. Tired of being low balled on offers because of this consistent issue, they needed to find someone in the Taylor area who specialized in crawl space repair and crawl space encapsulation. They needed HomeSpec.                                         


Jesse was the representative sent to meet with and help the family. with their property problems. The homeowners explained their frustrations with selling the home stemming from the value being reduced due to the state of the crawl space, a story HomeSpec is well familiar with by now. Afterall, why sell at a lower value with concessions being made, when you can have the work done and increase the overall value to your benefit? This was a straightforward task to get the crawl space cleaned, repaired, and encapsulated.        


Our crew set to work to remove debris and sheet metal littering the crawl space, ensuring a nice safe working environment. Jesse's inspection didn't reveal any cracks or foundation repair needs, so it was time to begin encapsulation. To fulfill that need, CleanSpace liner was used. CleanSpace is manufactured in 7 layers with a mix of high- and low-density polyethylene for puncture resistance and flexibility, respectively. CleanSpace encapsulation is permanently held in place with drilled-in fasteners and addresses all major concerns that come with a crawl space. Jesse had noted the two concrete support piers in the crawl space, which would also need to be carefully wrapped and sealed off, not being conscious of the slight change to encapsulation methodology this brings, could have resulted to the owner’s detriment. Thankfully, HomeSpec's representatives are the best of the best.            


Dirt crawl spaces left to go wild have a variety of negative effects including high humidity and condensation, wood rot, vegetation, pests, cold floors and higher heating costs, odor, and generally unhealthy and comfortable living spaces. By getting this work done, to address all these problems and make for a cleaner, more presentable presentation and inspection process for prospective buyers, this Taylor family was able to maximize their homes value.
