We were called when Jennifer noticed a crack outsdie her home. When we went to inspect the issue we noticed there was a very long crack on one side of the corner and another smaller crack on the other side. Since the house was settling in that corner of the house and it was winter, we decided to install Helical Piers. Helical Piers can be installed quickly year-round so you never have to worry about the time of year. These piers are also great at stabilizing and helping to return foundations to the original positions.

Steven noticed that his floor was not connected to the wall and the floor joists were taking in water. They has some leaks and had water on their wood floor boards. He called us to find a solution to the water issue. We installed the WaterGuard System to their home to keep the water off their floors and to drain it out of the house. The WaterGuard is a French drain that is installed below the floor slab, on top of the foundation footing to keep it out of the area where drains can clog. The system collects water from the walls and drains it to your sump pump. The system installs quickly and has a clean finish.

Wanda had puddles in her basement and water had been compin up through the floor. Her basement is partically finished but the area where there was water was not finished. She wanted a solution to have a dry basement but also wanted to make sure the finished part of her basment didn't get ruined. We installed the WaterGuard system to keep the water out of her basement. The WaterGuard is a French drain that is installed below the floor slab above the area where drains clog. This system collects water that seeps into the basement and drains it into the sump pump.

Job Stories From Comstock Park, MI
WaterGuard Perimeter System Installed to Fix Flooding Basement in Comstock Park, MI

This customer contacted us because he had another company install a perimeter system to take care of his flooding basement. The system they installed was only a partial perimeter system and it wasn't doing the job. The water in his basement really concerned this customer because he had done a lot of work in his basement and didn't want it ruined.

We decided the best solution to this problem was to install an entire perimeter system and not just a partial. WaterGuard sits above the footing rather than alongside it so no dirt, sand or other debris can get in and affect the system. The system is installed within a day and we make sure to put new cement down where the old was tore out. 

Beginning Signs of Wall Failure in Comstock Park, MI

Sue R. has a home that was built in the 60s and made with concrete block. She had a bowing wall that she was concerned about. This is often a sign of wall failure that can continue to worsen over time.

We installed our Wall Anchor System that is designed to stabilize your basement by securing your wall in its current position. This system is the best solution because it has a tightening system, that, over time, provides the best opportunity to straighten your walls. Wall Anchors require minimal disturbance to your family’s daily life and solves the problem for good.

 

Wet Comstock Park, MI Basement Received Waterproofing System

These homeowners had just bought their house when they noticed water was entering their basement whenever it rained heavily. There was no sump pump system installed and the home had mold issues due to the space being extremely damp. The basement was partially finished and the homeowners were looking for an effective solution that would save their home.

We installed the WaterGuard system that collected water entering the home through the walls and then immediately drained it into a sump pump to be discharged from the home. The home did not have a sump pump for water from the WaterGuard system to drain into, which is why we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This system included a powerful Zoeller pump that could pump up to 2,220 gallons of water per hour and an airtight lid that prevented water in the sump from evaporating into the basement, which would further contribute to the high humidity and moisture levels.

Next we installed the IceGuard system on the home’s discharge line. This system has specialized holes that guide water from rhe sump pump outside of the home, even if the pipes are frozen. This ensured the homeowners that water would not re-enter the basement and cause a flood. To lead water out away from the home and prevent it from flowing back toward the basement, we installed a LawnScape outlet on the end of the discharge line.

Failing Foundation Walls in Comstock Park, MI Now Stabilized

These homeowners called because one of the foundation walls in their basement was bowing inward and another wall was showing signs of possible wall failure, which they were looking to get fixed before it worsened.

To fix the wall that was already beginning to bow, we installed the PowerBrace system. To start the installation process, we removed a small section of the flooring at each brace location. The braces were then installed in the floor at the base of the wall and to the joists above the wall and secured into place with steel brackets. Once the braces were tightened, the wall was immediately stabilized and could potentially shift back to its original position by tightening the system over time.

To prevent the other wall in the home from bowing in the future, we installed the CarbonArmor system. A strong epoxy resin was first applied to the wall at each CarbonArmor strap location. The specialized straps are made out of a fiber-reinforced material that is 10 times stronger than steel, which makes it perfect for holding an entire wall in place. The straps were then adhered to the resin and secured, which automatically held the wall in place and prevented it from shifting in the future.

Leaking, Wet Basement Restored in Comstock Park, MI

These homeowners called because they noticed puddles of water on their floor underneath the carpeting during heavy rainfall. They had to pull out the carpet because of the seepage and they found large chips in the concrete slab where puddles of water were located. The excessive moisture and humidity levels in the basement resulted in mold growth in their newly finished basement and these homeowners were ready for the proper waterproofing solution.

Because water was entering the home through several corners at the cove joint, we installed a perimeter drainage system called WaterGuard. This system includes piping that we installed underneath the flooring in the home, up against the walls, around the entire basement. The pipes were placed in the excavated flooring and the excess space was filled with crushed stone before we restored the flooring with concrete fill. WaterGuard ensures any water intrusion filters directly into the system and then drains into a sump pump to be discarded from the home.

Next we installed the SuperSump sump pump system that will collect water from under the ground and from the WaterGuard system. The sturdy liner holds a powerful Zoeller pump that ensures any unwanted water is automatically pumped outside of the home.

Water from the sump pump exits the home through discharge lines, which can often freeze during the cold winter season. The IceGuard system was a must for this project because the specialized holes in the system ensure water has a passageway to exit the lines even if the pipe is frozen.

A LawnScape outlet was attached to the end of the home’s discharge line, out away from the property, to ensure exiting water will not flow back toward the home.
