The owners of this Decatur, MI rental home started to notice moisture in the walls and throughout the carpet in this room. They did what they could to dry out the space, including running a dehumidifier, but nothing worked. Our team came and revealed that the moisture had indeed done some damage— causing mold and mildew to grow behind the drywall. The best option to combat this was to replace the drywall along the perimeter of the room and replace it with EverLast wall panels. These cement boards have a washable, vinyl finish and are more resistant to water than traditional drywall. ThermalDry tiles, which are the only inorganic subfloors resilient to water and mold, were then installed making this room dry and mold-free.

Barb's home was experiencing some significant foundation settlement issues. Cracks in the foundation walls were clear around several sides of the home. One of the places where it was most evident was right in the front of the house. Even the vinyl siding above the crack was beginning to buckle. Our foundation team came in and installed a series of piers around the home to help support and lift the home back into position. Helical piers were the main tool used. To install helical peirs, we excavate a small hole around the outside of the home to expose the home's footer. We then drill these long steel piering shafts into the ground until they reach competent soil that can reliably support the weight of the home. In many cases, they are even able to lift the foundation back into its original position. We then fill the excavated area back in with as minimal damage to the lawn as possible. This fix is permanent and incredibly reliable. Already, the front of Barb's home looks a lot better!

Melinda's crawl space needed insulated so she called our team. We installed SilverGlo, a set of waterproof foam panels. This panels are used on the walls of your crawl space in order to insulate it. Uninsulated crawl spaces cost you money each year by increasing your heating and cooling bills. SilverGlo blocks all moisture and is made of inorganic material which prevents mold, rot or mildew from forming. Overall, it will keep your crawl space dry and insulated which will save you lots of money over the years.

Job Stories From Decatur, MI
Settled Slabs and Wet Crawl Space Now Restored in Decatur, MI

This homeowner contacted us because he was looking for a system that would fix his wet crawl space. He also wanted to address the settled sidewalk and driveway leading to his home.

In order to collect and discard unwanted water in the crawl space, we installed the SuperSump sump pump system. This system included a sturdy liner and a powerful Zoller pump to ensure the space was fully protected. An airtight lid was also included in this effective system to prevent water in the sump from evaporating into the crawl space air, which would further contribute to the high humidity and moisture levels.

Next we installed the IceGuard system on the home’s discharge line. The large holes in this system help water immediately exit the sump pump even if the pipe was frozen. IceGuard ensures frozen discharge lines will not be the reason water re-enters the home and causes a flood. A LawnScape outlet was also installed on the end of the discharge line to guide water away from the home.

To fix the settled cement slabs, we installed the PolyLevel system. Specialized polymers were injected underneath the slab through small, drilled holes. The polymers expanded to lift the slab back to its proper level.
