These Mulliken homeowners have a very big water problem in their basement. The water even flows across the floor as well as along the wall.

In cases of power outages or some levels malfunctioning, the sump will continue to work and keep the basement try.

Courtney has had water issues in her basement for the past year she has been in her home. Water was coming in where the wall meets the floor but also seeped in through the cinder block wall. The water that enters the basement pools in the middle of the room but there is no sump pump. We installed the WaterGuard system to keep the water out of the basement. The system is made up of a French drain that is installed under the floor but above the foundation so it won't clog. It collects water that seeps into the basement and sends it to the sump pump to get discharged. We also installed the TripleSafe Sump Pump System to provide her with three levels of protection to her basement. It makes sure that water is getting expelled out of the home even in the event of a power outage or a pump malfunctioning.
Dan had us out in the past to give some sinking concrete a polylevel treatment, using high-density polymers injected underneath the concrete to fill voids and lift the concrete back into its original position. With a significant amount of new slabs needing to be addressed, this time we ended up removing the concrete completely and pouring a new walkway. The results are a far cry from what was there before. The walkway will be much safer to walk on and water will flow safely away from the home.

The homeowners had a vertical stairstep crack going down one of their walls in the basement. As the wall bows more in the middle, the corners are held up by adjacent walls, creating the stair step cracking effect. This kind of crack is a typical sign that your wall is bowing, the problem is getting worse, and something needs to be done to fix it.

A low-profile wall plate, placed on the interior of your basement wall, is secured to the rod. The hole is then filled back up and sod is replaced. Once all the components of the wall anchor system are connected and tightened, your basement wall is permanently stabilized. The wall anchor system is a great product for fixing bowing and cracked walls because it allows for improvement and straightening of your wall over time!

This Kewadin, MI crawl space was riddled with moisture and mold.
