After meeting with another company in an effort to solve his waterproofing issue, this homeowner knew exactly what he didn’t want in his partially finished basement. The problem was that water was seeping in at the floor and wall joint in one of the basement closets. Since the leaky portion of the wall – the bottom foot and half – had already been removed, he thought that the full wall replacement suggestion from the other company was unnecessary, and he was right.

Our crew stepped in to give the owner what he wanted. Our BrightWall panels can be attached in front of any wall and allow for water to drain behind them. The crew cut the panels to the 18 inches necessary and attached them where the drywall had been removed. Any seepage that occurs behind the wall will flow into the perimeter drainage system that crew installed at the foot of the wall before being directed to the SuperSump sump pump pictured in the after photo.

If you have an idea of how you’d like your waterproofing to look, our system design specialists will work with you to make sure your basement is protected and to your liking.

Paul called when he and his siblings wanted to take care of the problems in their mom's crawl space. The crawl space had vents and didn't have a sump pump, so mold and moisture problems were pervasive.

We encapsulated the crawl space with CleanSpace vapor barrier and installed a Smart Sump pump and a SaniDry dehumidifier, as well as closing the vents and putting better doors on the entrances, in order to seal off the crawl space from ambient moisture issues.

Job Stories From Houghton Lake, MI
Helical Piers Stabilized Settled Foundation in Houghton Lake, MI

Gary and Carol W. reached out to us because they were looking to deal with the foundation issue in their home. There was a large crack located in the corner of their foundation wall on the outside of the home. The foundation had sunk about an inch in that same corner and these homeowners were looking for a reliable solution that would support their home and prevent it from settling again in the future.

To stabilize the foundation and lift it back to its original level, we installed helical piers. First, we needed to remove the soil outside of the home where the settlement had occurred because the piers are installed at the base of the home and secured into place. The piers were then driven down into the ground until they reached stable soil that would be able to hold the weight of the home. Once the system was completely installed, the foundation slab in the home was lifted the soil was backfilled.

Houghton Lake, MI Cottage Receives Crawl Space Update

This old Houghton Lake cabin had a crawl space that was in need of proper insulation and a plastic sheathing that would keep moisture out. The crawl space had block walls and a sand base that allowed water and water vapor to easily access the space.

The first step in this project was to install drainage matting on the base of the crawl space. Because the space was going to be encapsulated with a liner, we needed the dimpled surface of the drainage matting to help guide water to the perimeter drain to prevent it from getting trapped underneath the liner. 

The CleanSpace liner was installed on the base and the walls of the crawl space to completely seal it off from outside air and moisture. The liner is waterproof and vapor proof to prevent any type of moisture from entering the crawl space and its inorganic materials and antimicrobial additive prevents mold growth. The liner was securely fastened to the walls so the homeowner will never have to worry about it falling down and the material is extremely durable, making it resistant to ware and tare over time. 

To insulate the walls in the crawl space we used FrothPak spray foam insulation. Unlike traditional fiberglass insulation this one will never absorb moisture in the space and if it did get wet, its inorganic materials prevent mold growth. The spray foam was easily used to completely seal the walls off from the outside environment.

I have two adjacent walkway slabs that butt to the house that measures 4 x 5 and 4 x 7. Sloping from 1/4 to 1 3/4 inches towards a wood step. Looking to see if raising the slabs are cost effective for this size. Thank you
