Cracks Repaired & Basement Waterproofed in Shelby Township, MI

Cracks Repaired & Basement Waterproofed in Shelby Township, MI

Cracks Repaired & Basement Waterproofed in Shelby Township, MI Cracks Repaired & Basement Waterproofed in Shelby Township, MI

Like many people, these homeowners were plagued by a wet, humid basement. They had leaking cracks and rod holes that needed repairing as well. Many belongings were stored in their basement so they needed a reliable, permanent solution to fix their problem. That's where HomeSpec came in to save the day!

The WaterGuard perimeter drainage system was installed to waterproof the basement. This was connected to a brand new TripleSafe sump pump since the one they had was quite outdated. Then a SaniDry XP dehumidifier was installed to keep the relative humidity at a healthy 55%. The homeowners also wanted a CleanSpace vapor barrier installed over the walls after the cracks and rod holes were sealed. This blocks humidity and water vapor from entering the basement.

HomeSpec gave this basement the ultimate protection from water issues, and the homeowners are very pleased that no water has leaked into their basement since!

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

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 Macomb 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 Utica, MI
Homeowner with Bowing Wall has PowerBrace Installed to Save Basement Wall in Shelby Township, MI

A homeowner who lived in Shelby Township, MI had big plans for a house flip. Eager to complete the renovations and move to a warmer climate, they had been diligently working on the property before putting it up for sale. However, during the renovation process, they noticed a concerning issue in the basement—a wall that was bowing inward. Recognizing the importance of addressing this problem with a professional, they contacted us for the project.

 

When the homeowner reached out to us, they explained that despite the bowing wall, they had not experienced any water intrusion in the basement. Additionally, the homeowner mentioned that they had previously installed French drains in the backyard to divert water away from the house. While this measure helped prevent water from entering the basement, it did not address the structural issue causing the bowing wall.

 

Based on a thorough assessment of the basement, our Project Manager recommended they have us install the PowerBrace Load-Bearing System.

 

The PowerBrace system is designed to stabilize and potentially straighten bowing or buckling basement walls. It's made of strong steel I-beams that are installed vertically along the affected wall, anchoring the basement floor to the floor joists above. These beams provide structural support and help prevent further inward movement of the wall. With each beam in place, our crew made sure to tighten them gradually to provide enough support and correct the bowing.

 

With this essential improvement in place, the homeowner could confidently proceed with their house flip, knowing that whoever bought the house after them would enjoy a secure basement.

Homeowner in Shelby Township, MI completes Renovations with SmartJack, SaniDry and CleanSpace Systems

This homeowner in Shelby Township, MI had just gotten the idea to make some renovations to their home. However, before they could begin the process they needed to address the sagging floors in the living room and bedrooms. After having a few contractors take a look, they found out that the support posts in the crawl space were damaged, causing the floors to settle and sag. They were getting increasingly worried that the problem would only get worse, and didn't know how to fix it. That's when they heard about HomeSpec BasementFix and reached out to us for a solution.

A Project Manager, who had experience in crawl space repair, was sent to the house to assess the crawl space and propose a solution. During the inspection, the Project Manager noted how the support posts were damaged and needed to be replaced. They explained to the homeowner the many benefits of installing the SmartJack Support System and how it would provide a permanent solution to their sagging floors. He also recommended the crawl space be encapsulated with the CleanSpace System as well as the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to prevent any further damage to the area and ensure long lasting support for the support jacks.

When the Project manager and the homeowner agreed on a date for the repair, the next step was to send out our crew of skilled technicians. They first removed the damaged support posts and installed the SmartJack Support System in its place. The SmartJack system is designed to be easily adjustable, so our crew was able to precisely level the floor joists and provide the necessary support. They also encapsulated the crawl space with CleanSpace, a vapor barrier that would keep out moisture and reduce the risk of mold growth. Finally, the crew would install the SaniDry Sedona, a high-performance dehumidifier, to further protect this homeowner's crawl space. The SaniDry Sedona would keep the air in the crawl space dry, reducing the risk of mold and other moisture-related problems.

After the project was completed, the homeowner immediately noticed the floors were level and no longer sagged. They were also impressed with the clean and well-sealed crawl space, which was now protected from moisture and other environmental problems.

Homeowner in Shelby Township has foundation repaired and crawl space encapsulated with CleanSpace

A family in Shelby Township, MI was facing a major problem that affected their health and was causing them stress for some time. Their crawl space had a persistent mold problem that was causing allergies and respiratory issues. To make matters worse, the foundation was sinking, which was causing cracks in the walls and floor of the home. These homeowners were at their wit's end and didn't know what to do, so they reached out to HomeSpec BasementFix for help. 

Once our Project Manager had arrived at the home and had noted during his detailed inspection that the mold problem in the crawl space was due to high humidity levels and poor ventilation and the sinking foundation, on the other hand, was due to poor soil conditions and lack of proper support. To solve these problems, our Project Manager recommended a two-step approach. First, our crew would use the Helical Pier Support System to raise the foundation and stabilize the structure of the home, then they would encapsulate the crawl space using the CleanSpace System and the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. 

The first step in this project was to install the helical pier support posts. This involved installing steel piers into deeper, load bearing soil to provide a strong and permanent support for the foundation. Next, our crew would encapsulate the crawl space with the CleanSpace Encapsulation Liner. CleanSpace is a heavy-duty liner that would be installed on the floor and walls of the crawl space to prevent moisture and mold from entering the space. Lastly, the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier would be installed to control the humidity levels and ensure a dry and healthy environment.

Once our crew had completed the job, the crawl space was clean and dry, and there was no more mold or dampness. The foundation had been raised and stabilized, and there were no more cracks in the walls and floors.

This family was overjoyed and grateful for the work our crew had done. They were finally able to breathe easy and live in the home without fear of the mold affecting their health. The Helical Pier Support System and CleanSpace encapsulation had transformed this home, making it a safe and healthy place for the family.
