Sometimes a crack in your foundation is just a crack. But more often than not, it's a sign that something much bigger is wrong.

This time, it was the latter. We were called for a foundation repair but discovered that much more work was needed, and the homeowner decided to just take care of everything in order to ensure that the basement stays dry all the time, rather than try to fix problems as they arose.

We installed WaterGuard (pictured) with LawnGuard outlets, a TripleSafe sump pump, a SaniDry dehumidifier, the WellDuct window well drainage system, and power braces to strengthen the structure of the basement.

When these Montague, MI started noticing a musty smell coming from their crawl space, they knew they needed an encapsulation. That musty smell usually comes from moisture and humidity in the crawl space. Dirt floors (like the one seen in the before photo) allow vapor and heat to rise up and into the crawl space. Luckily for the owners, the CleanSpace system in the after photo is a complete vapor barrier that won’t allow moisture to pass through. The full encapsulation also covered the walls, just in case water was leaking through them as well. With the inclusion of a Sanidry CX Dehumidifier, there shouldn’t be any more trouble for this crawl space.

Job Stories From Montague, MI
No More Musty Crawl Space in Montague, MI

Rick A. of Montague, MI had a very musty crawl space before reaching out to us. Mustiness is caused by moisture, dampness, and, inevitably, mold

Our fix? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system and the SaniDry CX crawl space dehumidifer. We began this musty project by installing that Cleanpace system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space form the surrounding elements. No cold air, water, or dirt will enter a crawl space with this system in place. And on top of that, CleanSpace is developed with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth!

After we installed the CleanSpace it was time for the SaniDry CX. The SaniDry CX is compact, yet beast-like. It can collect up to 109 pints of water without its collection tray having to be emptied. This will take care of the standing humidity that lives in the crawl space.

SuperSump and WaterGuard: The Perfect Pair

Martha T. of Montague, MI was having water puddle in her basement around her well pit and needed a fix. So, she called us.

Our solution? The WaterGuard French drain system and the SuperSump French drain system. We began by installing the SuperSump. The SuperSump is specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, it is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

After that installation we moved onto the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once that water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the SuperSump -- to be pumped up and out of the house.

Wet Basement No More in Montague, MI Home

Andy M. of Montague, MI dealt with a wet basement in his home for 2 to 3 years. Water was coming into the basement from the foundation and walls, causing a damp, unpleasant environment. 

Our solution? We first installed our patented SuperSump premier sump pump system. SuperSump is a sump pump specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. It is capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, so it is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

After that, we installed a favorite of ours: the WaterGuard French drain system. The WaterGuard drain rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting the water that seeps in from the walls. The water is then directed to the SuperSump, and pumped outside, far from the home. 

 

Using PowerBraces to Reinforce Montague, MI Wall

One of our previous customers called us last month with a new problem. We'd installed a full perimeter waterproofing system in their basement last year, and it was doing wonderfully, but one of the walls was bowing.

One of the major causes of a bowing wall is soil expansion; as temperatures rise and fall, the soil expands and shrinks. When this happens frequently over a long period of time, it can put pressure on the basement walls and cause bowing. In this case, there was a visible crack in the block wall.

We used PowerBraces to stabilize and reinforce the basement wall. Not only will the steel beams prevent the soil from pushing the wall further, but with the included tightening kit, the braces can be tightened over time and eventually straighten the wall.

I was wondering if I could get a quote on repairing a small crack in the foundation of my home. It is a poured concrete wall and the crack goes through to the interior in a very small area. When we get enough rain though, we are getting water/sediment inside the house. Thank you

I have a poured concrete porch on block foundation t. The front edge is sinking and pulling away from the foundation. I wonder if mudjacking can fix it
