    Richard called us because he had a three season room that had a sinking corner. The sinking support posts were causing issues like windows getting stuck and the floors becoming unleveled. We used SmartJacks support posts to stabilize the sinking corner. The SmartJacks are attached to the floor joists and have a sturdy base. Once installed, the posts can be adjusted to raise the floors back to the original level.

    Duncan was having water issues like hes never had before during heavy rain. The water was entering his basement where the floor met the wall and would cover the whole floor. He had vacuumed up most fo the water,but he couldn't keep doing that so he called us for a solution. We installed the WaterGuard System which is a French drain that is under the floor ot collect the water leaking in. The water is then drained to the sump pump to be discharged outside the home. We also installed the DoubleSafe Sump Pump System. This provides 2 levels of protection in case one level stops working or needs extra help in heavy rain.

    Installing SmartJacks in a Crawl Space in Kalamazoo MI

    We got called to a home in Kalamazoo because their add-on had settled. The crawl space support was made out of a brick post with boards stacked on top. This could cause problems becuase wood can rot or break. With the ground settling and the possibility of the wood posts breaking, this could lead to the floors sagging which is not good. We installed SmartJacks in this customers crawl space to hold up up the floor and keep it level.

    Water intrusion had become a common thing in Jacky and Robert’s basement. They believed part of it was seeping in through cracks near the basement windows so they called our team and we replaced their windows with Egress Windows. Due to poor insulation around the window, most windows offer minimal protection against outside air entering the home. Egress windows help ventilate your indoor areas and prevent unwanted allergens from entering your house. So, our team installed an Egress window which will help keep Robert and Jacky's basement better insulated.

    Kyle noticed that he had water damage in his basment on the walls and on the floor. He wasn't sure where the water was coming from or what to do about it so he gave us a call to help him find a solution. We installed WaterGuard which is a French drain that is designed to be installed below the floor slab. This drain collects water that seeps through basement walls and drains it to your sump pump. We also installed the SaniDry to keep the basement dry. SaniDry has a powerful blowing motor that keeps dry air circulating throughout the space, drying out your basement or crawl space. Collected water can be drained into a sump pump pit, a section of your perimeter drain, or away via a condensation pump. This dehumidifier is super efficient and has a small size so it doesn't take up much space in your basement.

    These Rockford homeowners get a lot of rain in their basement when there is heavy rain. They were not sure where the water comes in from and they didn't have a sump pump to drian the water. We first installed the TripleSafe Sump Pump System to provide extra levels of protection. The TripleSafe has three levles which allow for the pump to still work in case of one level breaking or a power outage. We then installed the WaterGuard system which is a drain that is under the floor but above the foundation. The drain collects the water that comes into the basement and sends it to the sump pump to be discharged outside the home.
