Basement Wall Crack Repair in Dewitt, MI

Basement wall cracks are commonly caused by concrete shrinkage. Soil contraction and expansion put pressure on the walls and can cause separation. Unlike other epoxies, FlexiSpan crack repair uses a specialized formula that keeps its bond under any situation.

The large crack in the before photo occurred because the groundwater had been pushing its way through the seams of the wall. As you can see, the water had resulted in a lot of damage around the seam like water stains and widening the crack. The after photo shows our solution, the FlexiSpan crack repair system. It’s a two-layer sealant that both plugs the crack and creates a drainage route for leaking water.  Underneath the white panel in the after photo, polyurethane was used to seal the seam. Any water that pushes through the sealant will be directed down the wall into a drainage well at the foot of the wall. The FlexiSpan will stop water from coming entering this basement again.

This 3-car driveway in Dewitt, MI had recently cracked and sunk in some areas. The homeowners wanted a long-lasting alternative to replacing the concrete slabs, so they decided to go with the PolyLevel system. Similar to mudjacking, PolyLevel involves injecting the slab with a material to help raise the slabs back to their original. However, unlike Mudjacking which involves larger injections of mud and concrete, PolyLevel uses high-density polymers and small injection holes. This material is 30 times lighter and is fast-drying, so the driveway can be driven on within 15 minutes of installation. PolyLevel gives this driveway a major repair, in record time.

Job Stories From Dewitt, MI
Drastic Angles in Driveway in Dewitt, MI

A customer from Dewitt told us about his driveway at his home. We were told that one slab of concrete was a totally different angle than the rest, which leads to a very bumpy drive and a very trip hazard for anyone in the neighborhood. This homeowner wanted us to fix it any way that we could without getting a new driveway, so we installed our advanced PolyLevel technology on the driveway.

 

PolyLevel is a polymer injection foam that allows the concrete to level out and be stronger than ever. PolyLevel worked to raise and level out the concrete slabs while dealing with the weak soils below that were no longer able to hold the weight of the home above. We drilled multiple small holes into the concrete slabs in order to inject them with a polymer material that expanded to lift and level out the concrete. Once injected, the system only needed about 15 minutes to fully cure and the slabs were then stabilized and lifted to their proper level, and stronger than ever before. Now, this homeowner will not have to worry about this ever again.

WaterGuard Installed in Wet DeWitt, MI Basement

Doug and Julie R. had a finished basement that was leaking in the cold storage area under the front porch. There were large puddles of water from under the porch during times of heavy rain and the homeowner was looking for an effective solution that would permanently solve the problem.

To protect this home from further water damage, we installed the WaterGuard system. WaterGuard is a perimeter drainage system that was installed around the interior perimeter of the basement. Sections of the flooring at the base of each wall were removed in order to place the specialized drainage pipes. Water entering the home drains into the system and is carried to the sump pump to be discharged from the home. The excavated flooring was restored with concrete fill and the installation was complete!

PowerBraces Stabilize Failing Wall in DeWitt, MI

Ed Y. called because he had several horizontal and stair steps cracks that were located on his basement foundation walls. 

We decided to install the PowerBrace system in order to save the failing walls and prevent them from cracking and shifting any further. To being, we reinforced the joists in the ceiling to remove some of the weight that was being exerted on the wall. Next we removed a section of the flooring at the base of the wall to place the steel columns that ran all the way up the wall and were then secured to the joists with steel brackets. The braces were tightened into place, which automatically stabilized the wall and prevented it from moving. The braces can be tightened even more over time to completely shift the wall back to its original position if possible.

Eliminating Water Seepage in DeWitt, MI Basement

These homeowners reached out to us because they had moisture seeping into their basement through the walls. The seepage usually occurred during times of heavy rain and they were looking for a reliable solution to waterproof the space.

We installed the WaterGuard system in this basement to collect and discard water seepage. The system was installed under the floor at the base of the wall, so the first thing we had to do was remove the dry wall in the basement so we could excavate the flooring. Sections of the flooring, up against the walls were removed around the interior perimeter of the basement in order to install pipes. The pipes were placed in the floor and the excess space was filled with crushed stone and then topped off with concrete fill to restore the flooring. A section of the system was left uncovered so incoming water can enter the system. Any water that enters the piping is directed to the sump pump in the home to be discarded outside. An inspection port was also installed in the system so that we can have access to the pipes if we need to, without having to rip up the flooring again.

Waterprooing DeWitt, MI Basement to Keep Rain Water Out

These homeowners found that during times of heavy rainfall, water would seep into the basement through the walls and they looking for an effective solution that would save the space.

Our team installed WaterGuard around the interior perimeter of the basement to guard the home from any type of water intrusion. The system was installed underneath the flooring, so our first step was to remove the dry wall in the home so that we could place specialized pipes at the base of the walls. The flooring was removed, the pipes were placed and the excess space was filled with crushed stone. The system was then covered with cement fill to restore the floors and cover up the piping. This system ensures this basement is safe by draining incoming water into the system and then exiting it into the home’s sump pump. We also installed inspection ports in the system that give us access if needed, so we don’t have to dig up the floors again if a problem occurs.

PowerBraces Support Bowing Basement Walls in Dewitt, MI

Dirk D. called because his 1965 cement block foundation was cracking and bowing inward. The original wall that was bowing was remedied by creating a second block wall to support it, although both the walls began to bow and moisture was entering the home. 

To support the bowing wall we installed the PowerBrace system. For this installation we sized steel-I beams for the height of the basement that were secured in the floor at the base of the wall and then connected to the joists above the wall with steel brackets.  We tightened the system, which immediately supported the failing basement wall. These beams can be tightened over time to completely shift the wall back to its original position. A joist reinforcement method is also used for PowerBraces, which ensures the weight of the wall is evenly distributed across the ceiling to prevent damage to the floor above.
