This homeowner was in the process of selling his house when he noticed standing water and a leak in his crawl space. Our system design specialist took a trip out to Douglas, MI to see what kind of help we could provide.

After hearing the possible options, the owner decided on a full crawl space encapsulation. The white liner seen in the after photo is CleanSpace, a plastic vapor barrier used for encapsulation. Used on both the walls and floor, the barrier will prevent moisture, humidity, and other common crawl space threats from entering. Underneath the liner is a drainage matting, which will be used to address the issue of standing water in the crawl space. The matting will keep water from puddling and direct flow to the newly installed SmartSump pump for discharge. A new fully protected crawl space should make selling this home much easier.

This family cottage sits right on the beach and they wanted to make sure their beloved cottage was going to last another 100 years, for generations to come. The homeowners noticed the floor was starting to sink and were not level throughout the home and most of the windows and doors were sticking, all signs that the foundation is settling. 

We were able to fix the settling floors and sticking windows and doors by installing out SmartJack crawl space stabilizers. The SmartJacks are made of galvanized steel so they won't rust and will remain solid for years to come. These jacks can withhold more than 60,000 pounds. This is more than enough to transfer the weight of your home to the SmartJacks, leaving you with a level floor.

Sticking Doors in Douglas, MI Beach Home

This family cottage sits right on the beach and they wanted to make sure their beloved cottage was going to last another 100 years, for generations to come. The homeowners noticed the floor was starting to sink and were not level throughout the home and most of the windows and doors were sticking, all signs that the foundation is settling. 

We were able to fix the settling floors and sticking windows and doors by installing out SmartJack crawl space stabilizers. The SmartJacks are made of galvanized steel so they won't rust and will remain solid for years to come. These jacks can withhold more than 60,000 pounds.

SmartJack System Installed in Douglas, MI Crawl Space

This house had damaged support beams in the crawl space that were causing the main floor to become unstable. The homeowners were looking for a reliable solution that would raise the sagging floor and prevent the issue from occurring again in the future.

We installed the SmartJack system to stabilize the ceiling of the crawl space. The jacks were installed in the floor of the crawl space and then connected to the beams above. Once tightened into place, the system immediately stabilized the floor, walls and any weight within the house. We also installed steel support beams to replace the ineffective wood ones that were unable to support the weight of the home above.

SmartJacks Saves Unstable Floor in Douglas, MI

These homeowners called because the support beams in their crawl space seemed to be damaged, which created an unstable main floor located above the space.

In order to stabilize the beams and prevent the floor above from sagging any further, we installed the SmartJack system. To begin, we needed to install several galvanized steel beams to take the place of the inefficient, unstable beams originally found in the space. Next, we installed four SmartJacks to support the beams above. We first excavated sections of soil at each jack location. The excavated area was then filled with crushed stone and steel footing was placed to hold the steel support columns. The columns were inserted into the footing, attached to the steel beams above and tightened into place, which immediately stabilized the crawl space ceiling.

Bowing Douglas, MI Wall Stabilized With CarbonArmor

Barry E. had a bowing basement wall that allowed water to leak into his home and he wanted an effective fix before the problem continued to worsen.

In order to stabilize the wall and prevent it from bowing inward any further, we decided to install the CarbonArmor system. This system uses fiber-reinforced polymers that are 10x stronger than steel, which makes them perfect for stabilizing a heavy foundation wall. To begin the installation, we painted apoxy resin onto the wall at the location of each CarbonArmor strap. Next, we adhered the strap to the resin and secured the system at the base of the wall with steel brackets. The wall was immediately stabilized and will work to pull it back to its original position.

Waterproofing Soon-to-be Finished Basement in Douglas, MI

Doug B. wanted to finish his basement, but needed to make sure it was waterproofed before doing so. The basement had a crack in the foundation where water was entering.

To seal off the crack and deal with intruding water we installed FlexiSpan. For this installation we first removed a section of the flooring underneath the crack to place a drainage gate that will collect incoming water to prevent it from flowing onto the floor. Next the crack was sealed off and covered with the FlexiSpan paneling, which will prevent the crack from shifting any further and prevent water from entering the home. 

To deal with the high humidity levels in the basement, we installed a SaniDry XP. SaniDry is an effective dehumidification system that wrings the basement air dry. After the air passes through the large cold coil, it is then filtered to remove any unwanted particles and a powerful blower distributes it throughout the basement.
