The homeowner contacted HomeSpec about a vertical crack in his basement wall. He said the crack would leak water after hevay rain and during the spring thaw.
Our crew injected the crack with polyurtheane to prevent it from leaking.
A homeowner noticed water getting into her basement from under her stairs, so a neighbor referred her to HomeSpec.
Our crew found that the water was coming through a crack. We injected it with polyurethane. The repair comes with a lifetime transferable warranty to protect the home from future water leaks.
The partially finished basement of the home had a crack that was leaking, as well as several other cracks in the wall. Also, the cracked wall and another wall were pushed inward just over an inch.
To combat this foundation issue, steel I-beams were installed, a carbon fiber strap was used, and power grids were placed on the leaking crack to provide reinforcement and prevent further movement. To fix the cracks, our team injected some of the cracks with polyurethane and some of the cracks with epoxy.
A homeowner contacted HomeSpec because a crack he tried to repair was again leaking.
Our team injected the crack with polyurethane to stop further leaking. We also installed power grids to prevent wall movement.
A homeowner contacted us because multiple walls in his basement were leaking.
Our team installed an interior drainage system in the basement. We also encapsulated a crawl space at the home.
A homeowner contacted us about his 15-year-old home having vertical cracks in the basement foundation that would leak when rains were heavy.
Our team sealed the cracks to prevent any future water issues.
These homeowners contacted us about water seeping into their finished basement through rod holes.
Our crew repaired the rod holes to waterproof the basement and prevent more water issues in the future.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec about her basement leaking where the floor and the wall meet, especially when it rains.
Our crew installed an interior drainage system to fix this problem, which redirects any water into the sump pump and prevents future water issues.
These homeowners contacted us because their basement was damp and needed to be waterproofed. They were also having issues with the floor above their crawl space.
To solve these problems, HomeSpec installed an interior drainage system around the perimeter of the basement and encapsulated the crawl space to keep everything dry and clean.
This customer had water leaking into their basement and contacted HomeSpec about installing a sump pump.
Our crew installed the sump pump and also a backup battery. This comes in handy in the event that your power goes out, like in extreme weather, the backup will automatically kick in and start removing water from you basement.
This homeowner contacted us after finding some mold on the drywall in her basement.
HomeSpec installed an interior drainage system as well as a dehumidifier to keep the humidity levels low and prevent any more mold issues in the future.
These homeowners contacted us because they were looking to sell their home, but the basement walls had several large cracks (as shown in the photo).
HomeSpec sealed the cracks with our durable polyurethane injection, and also installed a strap system that stabilized the wall. This is a quick and easy solution to reinforce your wall and won't get in the way of future remodeling.
These homeowners contacted us about rod holes in their basement walls that were leaking during heavy rain.
HomeSpec solved the problem by sealing the rod holes and installing an interior drainage system. Then we installed our CleanSpace wall system to prevent water vapor from passing through the walls, and instead directing it to the sump pump.
A previous customer of ours contacted us about water leaking behind her electrical box in the basement.
HomeSpec discovered upon inspection that rod holes were to blame, so our crew sealed them to prevent any more issues.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec after finding leaking cracks in the basement walls of her two-year-old home.
Our crew repaired the cracks, then installed a dehumidifier to control the moisture in the basement, and to keep the air dry and clean.
This homeowner has an old home with no sump pump and contacted HomeSpec after her finished basement was continuously leaking.
Our crew installed an interior drainage system and connected it to a new sump pump to prevent more leaks, then installed a dehumidifier to ensure the moisture in the basement will be kept under control in the future.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because after heavy rains, the basement of her 78-year-old home was leaking where the floors and the walls meet.
After opening up the floor, our crew discovered problems with the wall, but they overcame any obstacles and installed an interior drainage system to prevent future leakage.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec to have their wet basement waterproofed.
Our crew did this by installing an interior drainage system and connecting it to a new sump pump, and installing our CleanSpace vapor barrier to the walls. This combination makes the ultimate waterproofing system--the vapor barrier prevents moisture from getting in, and the IDS collects any water and sends it to the sump pump.
These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because they had cracks repaired by another company, but they were leaking again. They also had water seeping in where the floor and wall meet.
Our crew repaired the cracks with our polyurethane sealant to waterproof them, and then installed a carbon fiber system to reinforce and stabilize the walls.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because their crawl space had cracks and rod holes leaking and needed it insulated.
Our crew sealed the cracks and rod holes and reinforced them with power grids, and then insulated the crawl space with our SilverGlo insulation. This rigid foam stops air/water leaks, and can never be damaged by moisture.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he said the insulation in his crawl space was falling down, and was ineffective.
Our crew removed the old insulation, which doesn't actually insulate crawl spaces very well, and installed our CleanSpace encapsulation system instead. This seals off the crawl space from the outside, protects it from moisture, and helps your home use less energy.
These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because they had several vertical cracks in their foundation that were leaking. The previous owner of the home already had rod holes repaired.
Our crew repaired the cracks by injecting them with our waterproof polyurethane sealant that is flexible enough to move with your wall (yes, your foundation walls move!) We also reinforced the crack with a carbon fiber power grid.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he discovered cracks in his basement wall coming from an egress window (as shown in the photos). Over the summer, the cracks would leak after heavy rain, even after he extended the downspouts near the window.
Our crew sealed the cracks with our polyurethane sealant, and reinforced them with carbon fiber power grids. This ensures the cracks will not worsen or leak again.
While there, we also leveled the concrete walkway using our PolyLevel system, and sealed the joints. To do this, an expanding polyurethane foam is injected under the concrete slabs, which then raises and levels them.
This past HomeSpec customer contacted us again because this time he wanted new flooring installed in his basement. The homeowner wanted to renovate his unfinished basement into an extra living space. While on our website, he saw that we also offer flooring and wall products.
He decided on the ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring (faux-wood flooring) and BrightWall® Basement Wall Panels (white rigid plastic sheeting). Since he already had an interior drainage system and sump pump installed, he wanted to know how our flooring and wall panels worked with those products.
We informed him that they both install easily over the waterproofing products, and they are both made of 100% inorganic materials - making them waterproof and mold-resistant. The wall panels specifically block water vapor from entering the basement, and direct the moisture down into the drainage system. Plus the bright white color provides a clean, fresh look in the basement. The flooring comes in four different colors, and this homeowner chose "dark walnut."
The homeowner and his family were so happy with the finished results - they now have a waterproofed AND finished basement thanks to HomeSpec. With double the living space, they have added way more value to their home!
This homeowner was experiencing water pooling around their foundation. He was afraid that the water would eventually make its way into his basement after seeping down into the soil. He contacted HomeSpec, and our inspector saw that their downspouts were spitting water out right at the foundation. On top of that, the ground was pitched toward the foundation.
Our crew went out and installed The RainChute EZ® to all of the gutters and graded the ground to slope away from the foundation. After a heavy rainfall, the homeowner reported no water pooling around the foundation, and a dry basement!
Water was leaking into this homeowners basement through old, rusted windows every time it rained. She attempted to seal the window with DIY hacks, but nothing worked. Another company tried to convince her that she needed a full waterproofing system, but it wasn't in her budget. Finally, she made the right decision and called HomeSpec. Although a full waterproofing system would completely prevent water issues, replacing the old windows were enough to solve the homeowners problem.
Luckily, HomeSpec has EverLast™ basement windows perfect for replacing old, leaky windows. They looked much nicer than the older ones, and they prevented water from entering the basement. The homeowner was so happy to save money and have a dry basement!
These homeowners dealt with a wet basement for a very long time. As soon as they moved into their home, they were finding water downstairs. The sump pump that was installed barely worked, and they desperately needed a new one - it couldn't be put off any longer. That's when they called HomeSpec.
One of our project managers went out to the home to inspect the problem. He discovered that the sump pump was simply too old and unreliable to handle the high amounts of water. This basement needed something to properly drain the water away from the home to prevent flooding - so a TripleSafe sump pump was recommended. There's 3 pumps for 3 levels of protection - including one battery-operated pump in case there's a loss of power. For the first time since moving into their home years ago, these homeowners can finally rest assured that there's no water in their basement.
50% of the air in a home comes up from the crawl space. So if there's high humidity in the crawl space, there's high humidity in the rest of the home. If there's cold air in the crawl space, there's cold air moving through the rest of the home. If there's mold in the crawl space, there's mold spores in the rest of the home. Whether you like it or not, you're breathing crawl space air. That's the problem this Manchester homeowner was facing when he decided to call HomeSpec.
This homeowner had all of the usual problems in his home: musty smells, aggravated allergies, humid summers, cold floors in the winter. Only, he didn't know his crawl space was to blame. Upon inspection, it was discovered that the crawl space was vented and allowing in air and water. The dirt floors allowed water vapor in. There was mold on the joists and the insulation was in poor condition as a result. So this homeowner decided to have HomeSpec encapsulate the crawl space with a CleanSpace vapor barrier. To encapsulate means to "enclose" something, which is what we do to the crawl space. It's completely sealed off from the outside so that nothing can pass through. A dehumidifier and sump pump control the water in the ground and the moisture in the air to keep it dry.
These homeowners contacted HomeSpec to repair their crawl space. It was always wet and muddy, and caused nasty smells to waft up to the home. In the winter, the floors above the crawl space were very cold.
A project manager conducted an inspection, and decided on the best way to waterproof and encapsulated the crawl space. He proposed a sump pump to control the water, a dehumidifier to control the humidity in the air, and a vapor barrier to seal out moisture from the walls and floor. This would solve the water problem, eliminate the smells, and prevent the cold floors.
The homeowners are very pleased to not have a wet or smelly crawl space anymore, and thanked HomeSpec for providing great communication and service from beginning to end!
After having HomeSpec waterproof their basement, these homeowners contacted us again but to install basement finishing products this time. After showing them all of their options, the homeowners chose the sandstone gray ThermalDry® basement floor tiles and paired them with the Everlast™ Finished Wall Restoration System.
The floor tiles increase the temperature of the basement floor and provide a clean look. The wall restoration system installs to the bottom half of the drywall. This is because water damage only occurs to the bottom of the wall if water seeps in, so this system prevents that since its made of inorganic materials - it won't rot or grow mold.
This homeowner's downspouts were not extended away from the home whatsoever, and water from the gutter was pooling around the foundation after heavy rainfall and snow melts. This water was then leaking into his basement, so he called HomeSpec.
Our crew extended the downspouts by 10 feet (at least 5 feet is recommended, but the further, the better). We also buried them to prevent tripping hazards and unsightly pipes getting in the way.
The homeowner reported that water had stopped pooling around his home near the downspouts, and his basement was no longer leaking! Problem = solved!
Todd G. from Whitmore Lake, Michigan contacted HomeSpec after heavy rains and a severe flood left him with damaged basement wall panels. He was very interested in our EverLast Finished Wall Restoration System.
These wall panels only install to the bottom half of the wall since that's what is damaged during a flood. Being made from inorganic materials, the wall panels will not be damaged by water or mold. They are also insulated and provide a very nice, finished basement look.
He was also interested in our waterproof flooring options, such as our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring. They are waterproof because they're made from 100% inorganic materials (faux wood) that also prevent them from being damaged by water or mold.
The homeowner chose these because if something happened and water got into his basement again, he knew he wouldn't have to tear up the carpet and wall panels again. Once was enough for him!
This Ypsilanti, Michigan homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he wanted a Battery Back-Up System installed with a new sump pump to prevent flooding even if a power outage occurs due to bad storms.
Over the weekend, heavy rainfall and severe flooding hit Michigan hard. It made many Michigan homeowners realize that they need to protect their basements against water intrusion. That's why this homeowner wanted to install a new sump pump with a battery back-up system – his pump failed and water filled his basement, causing tons of damage.
With our battery-back up, your pump will keep running even if you lose power, meaning you won't have to stress about a pump failing or the aftermath of a wet basement. It even sounds an alarm when it turns on in order to alert you.
This homeowner in Saline, Michigan contacted HomeSpec after experiencing a flooded basement. The carpet and drywall in the finished basement was ruined by the water, so everything had to be torn up and removed. They wanted to install waterproof flooring and wall products to make sure this didn't happen again.
HomeSpec informed the homeowners of their options. In the end, they decided to waterproof the finished basement with an interior drainage system and a sump pump before anything else. Then they wanted our ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring installed. This is a faux-wood flooring that is made of inorganic materials as to not be damaged by water or mold.
Now the homeowners don't have to worry about another basement flood, or having to rip up the flooring and start again because of damage.
This Ann Arbor, Michigan homeowner contacted HomeSpec because he was experiencing water seeping through cracks in his basement walls. He informed us of the many signs of water intrusion that he was experiencing – cracks in the floor and walls, paint bubbling and chipping off, and water pooling on the floor.
The homeowner was worried that the items stored in his basement would become ruined, and he wanted to use the basement as a home office. This is why he ultimately decided to install a full waterproofing system, including an interior drainage system, sump pump and waterproof basement flooring.
The homeowner was so happy with the results, and happy that the system protected his basement from all of the recent summer rains!
This concerned homeowner in Manchester, Michigan reached out to HomeSpec because the floors above their basement were sagging. But the issue was that tree trunks were being used as support posts in the basement – which are not sturdy or reliable – which is what was causing the sagging.
HomeSpec has seen this issue before in older homes so it's not as rare as you think! To solve the problem, the tree trunks were removed and SmartJack Support Posts replaced them. The SmartJack posts are much more sturdy and reliable, and they were able to lift and level the floors above. They not only stabilized the structure, but they will also prevent future sagging!
