Basement Gets Remodeled After Flood Damage in Westland, MI

Basement Gets Remodeled After Flood Damage in Westland, MI Basement Gets Remodeled After Flood Damage in Westland, MI

Elizabeth in Westland, Michigan contacted HomeSpec after the summer's heavy rains and bad storms left her with a wet basement. The biggest problem? Her basement was finished and water was seeping in through the walls, ruining the carpet and wood flooring. 

Upon inspection, project manager David Covert discovered that several cracks were the culprits of the leaking. Since Elizabeth had to rip out all of the water damaged flooring, David suggested installing a much better, waterproof flooring option. 

Crack technician Domonique Price filled and sealed all of the leaking cracks in the foundation walls with a high pressure urethane injection to stop the water intrusion. Then Foreman Jon Lont installed our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring in a light gray color to match the walls. 

Being made from inorganic materials, this faux-wood flooring option is great for homeowners who want to beautifully finish their basement but also protect it from water damage in the long term. Elizabeth will not have to waste time or money ripping out musty carpet or wet wood flooring ever again, and she's happy with her choice!

James D. from Westland, Michigan contacted the HomeSpec team because not only was his crawl space high in moisture, but the pipes would freeze in the winter and the floors above would be freezing cold.

Project manager Ben Gabowitz found the best method to help solve this homeowners problem - crawl space encapsulation and insulation. The encapsulation process seals off the crawl space from moisture with a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, and the SilverGlo Rigid Foam Insulation creates an air-tight seal to prevent cold air from entering. It's a win-win situation!

If you too experience a cold home in the winter that's difficult to heat, or freezing cold floors above your crawl space, then you might benefit from encapsulating and insulating your crawl space as well – to warm up your home and improve your energy efficiency!

Crawl Space Repair Solutions in Westland, MI

Your crawl space is often out of sight and thus out of mind, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Problems with your crawl space can have a wide-ranging and serious impact on the rest of your home.

Many of these problems originally stem from the outdated habit of venting crawl spaces during construction. While this might sound good on paper, in practice it’s a disaster. A vented crawl space means the air in the crawl space is always cold, moist, and drafty which leads to poor air quality and fosters mold growth. This, in turn, can lead to decreased energy efficiency for your home as cold air from your crawl space enters the home and heated air from your home dissipates into the crawl space. A dirty crawl space can also lower the quality of the air you breath since most of the air in your home passes through the crawl space at some point, picking up mold spores and other contaminants.

HomeSpec BasementFix can help turn your crawl space from a detriment into an asset. We offer a wide range of solutions including:

  • Crawl space encapsulation
  • Crawl space dehumidification
  • Crawl space insulation
  • Crawl space drainage
  • Crawl space support jacks
  • And more

Professional Concrete Leveling in Westland, MI

Sinking concrete can be a serious issue for a home leading to tripping hazards, pooling water, and more. Unfortunately, the only solution has often been mudjacking or slabjacking, which have a variety of issues, notably their long cure times. Luckily there’s a new solution in the form of PolyLevel®.

Generally, the sinking is due to soil beneath the slabs washing away, shrinking, or settling. This causes the unevenness that you see. With PolyLevel® we can inject a polyurethane foam beneath the slab to fill these voids, leveling out the concrete. Not only is this method highly effective, but it also cures far faster than most other methods and is waterproof.

Contact us today to learn more about any of our solutions and to schedule your free estimate for any of our services in Westland, MI!

Job Stories From Westland, MI
Sinking Concrete Driveway PolyLeveled & Repaired in Westland, MI

This homeowner in Westland, Michigan contacted HomeSpec because his concrete driveway slabs were cracked and sinking. They were previously mudjacked about 6 years ago, but they were already in bad shape again, so wanted to find a better method. 

HomeSpec introduced him to the PolyLevel method – which is longer-lasting, more cost-effective and less abrasive than other concrete repair methods. 

During this repair process, a polyurethane foam is injected below the concrete slabs. As it expands, the slab is raised and leveled. The material is high-density, stable and strong meaning it won't break down over time. 

After the homeowners driveway slabs were leveled, the cracked were filled and the concrete was sealed to protect the surface. He was extremely happy with the quick process, and his great-looking driveway! 

Old, Leaky Gutters Replaced in Westland, MI

This homeowner in Westland, Michigan contacted HomeSpec about replacing his old gutters. The home was several decades old, and so were the gutters. After years of snow, ice, wind and water damaging the gutters, it was time for them to finally retire. The homeowner was also getting older and didn't want to climb a dangerous ladder anymore to clean them out when they became clogged - which happened often, especially in the fall. 

HomeSpec installed Gutter Shutter Gutters onto the home to solve these issues. With the perforated gutter guards blocking leaves, twigs and other debris from clogging the gutters, the homeowner will never again have to clean them out. He was able to get them in a shade of brown that matched his home as well. 

The homeowner was quite happy with the final results of his brand new gutters, and with how quick and easy the entire process was! 

Crawl Space Floods After Storm in Westland, MI

This Westland, Michigan homeowner contacted HomeSpec after discovering a flooded crawl space. The crawl space often had high moisture already and gave off a musty smell, but this was the first time it fully flooded. The homeowner wanted it waterproofed and encapsulated to prevent it from happening again and eliminate the nasty smells. 

Our crew installed an Interior Drainage System connected to a Sump Pump to waterproof the crawl space. Then the space was sealed off completely from the outside with a Vapor Barrier and Insulation. This prevents moisture from seeping into the space and the sump pump funnels the water far from the home. Lastly, a Dehumidifier was installed to maintain a healthy relative humidity and prevent condensation. 

The homeowner noticed an immediate difference in the smell of her home and the humidity levels. She was so happy with her healthy new crawl space!

The homeowner called HomeSpec because there was water and staining on her basement walls. Water was entering the basement through rod holes and cracks.
