Over time, basement windows can collect dirt and debris. If you have a window like this, a SunHouse Window Well could protect your basement from future damage. This cover fights against any leaks from rain and snow, small pests and rodents getting to your window, and ensures your window stays clear allowing sunlight to enter your basement.

David called us because he was getting water in his crawl space. He told us it had flooded last year and the insulation had fallen. The furnace, water heater, and water softener are all in the crawl space so he wanted a solution to prevent further damage. 

We laid down drainage matting to keep water from getting stuck under the CleanSpace liner. If water was caught under the liner, it would never drain. The drainage matting has raised dimples in it to allow channels for the water to flow through under the liner. The matting also directs the flooding water to the sump pump system where it will be expelled from the crawl space.

We then installed CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier. This is a thick, durable liner that keeps water vapor and humidity from getting into the crawl space. The liner keeps the area dry and protects from mold and rotting. 

We installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump System that provides three levels of protection. If the pump on the bottom level fails, a second more powerful pump is a little higher that takes over. In case of the second pump failing or you lose power, the highest level is a UltraSump Battery Backup Sump Pump that will take over. This is a great solution for homeowners who may have problems with water in the crawl space or basement. 

We also installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to dry and filter the air in the crawl space. This helps to keep the crawl space clean and mold free. It is small in size so you don't have to worry about a bulky, loud humidifier and it is costs less to run!

David has been having flooding issues in his crawl space, it is even causing some of his insulation to fall. Therefore he called our team and we decided to install CleanSpace. CleanSpace is used as a vapor barrier to restrict all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. This plastic sheet material not only creates an energy-efficient crawl space, but it also gives your crawl space a clean finish. This material will be applied to your floors and walls to create a sleek look and an uninterrupted barrier.

Job Stories From Niles, MI
Severe Cracking & Wall Failure in Niles, MI

Mary had severe horizontal cracks in her cement block basement walls. Horizontal cracks are usually a result of bowing walls. The cracks usually start out  as small and increase in width over time as the soil from the outside continues to put pressure on the wall. This pressure can be caused by a variety of things such as hydro-static pressure. Hydro-static pressure is caused when water saturates the soils around your foundation and begins exerting that pressure against the wall.

Our team of experts used installed CarbonArmor to resolve Mary’s problem. CarbonArmor is significantly stronger than concrete and 10 times stronger than steel. It’s flexible design allows it to adhere tightly against the basement wall. It is perfect for walls that are bowing and cracked in several places. CarbonArmor’s low profile design allows for it to be installed in tight places and behind obstacles such as pipes or electrical units. The system can easily be painted over or use drywall for a clean and finished look.

PolyLevel Raises Falling Slab in Niles, MI

Dan E. of Niles, MI had a sinking cement slab that was creating a tripping hazard. This said, he gave us a call for a professional and long term fix.

We used our patented PolyLevel foam injection to solve this problem. PolyLevel is proven to be better and raising a slab that mudjacking and is far less intrusive. We begin by drilling penny-sized holes into the slab and after the PolyLevel is injected the holes are refilled. In the end, the slab can be walked or driven on in roughly 15 minutes.

Sunken Slab Repaired in Niles, MI

Nathan B. of Niles, MI dealt with a sunken slab outside of his garage that was causing a tripping hazard. The slab had sunken about an inch before Nathan gave us a call. 

Our fix? PolyLevel foam injection. PolyLevel is lightweight yet strong, bringing a slab back to its original height in no time. We begin by drilling penny-sized holes into the cement slab and then inject the PolyLevel. After the holes are resealed, the slab can be walked or driven on in roughly 15 minutes. 

Say Goodbye to Standing Water

Janice S. of Niles, MI has a basement that would get water every spring. There is a crack in the wall but she had no idea where the water is coming from. Before she called us she had at least 1" of standing water and she had had enough. 

Our solution? The TripeSafe sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The TripleSafe is a sump pump that provides three levels of protection against water leakage. Whether it be normal water supply, heavy volumes of water, or in the case of a power outage, this sump pump will keep your basement dry. For normal water supply, the Zoeller ⅓ horsepower pump functions. At a heavier level, the Zoeller ½ horsepower pump activates. In the case of a power outage, the UltraSump backup sump pump will pump water on a backup battery.

The WaterGuard French drain system rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. After this water is collected it is directed to the sump pump -- the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the house.

Dirty Crawl Space in Niles, MI Transformed

James V. of Niles, MI had a dark, dirty crawl space before he gave us a call. He wanted it to be encapsulated so it would not cause any problems.

We installed a customer favorite -- the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20 mm thick plastic lining that when installed, completely sealed off James' crawl space from the surrounding elements. No water, dirt, cold air, moisture, or debris will enter with this installation. And as a plus, CleanSpace is made with anti-microbial components to prevent any mold growth. This crawl space is now bright, clean, and in ready to keep the home above it in tip top shape!

Waterproofing in Niles, MI Home

Paul G. from Niles, MI had a crack in his basement wall that was causing water to come into his basement. For a trusty fix, he gave us a call. 

To remedy this situation, we decided to install our patented WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting all the water that seeps in through Paul's basement through the walls. WaterGuard is covered with a new layer of cement following its installation, making the product virtually invisible.

Paul, say goodbye to water issues! 

Waterproofing a Cluttered Niles, MI Basement

Peggy called a year after her husband had died, with the ongoing problem of her basement looming. There had been water problems in the basement every time it rained for quite a while, but now that she had the time to focus on it, she realized she had no idea what to do. Luckily, she called us.

We installed a full perimeter of WaterGuard below-floor drain to shuttle the water to a new TripleSafe sump pump. A SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to take care of ambient moisture. Those products working in conjunction will take care of any incoming water and keep the basement dry and safe for storage.

Speaking of storage, we also helped Peggy out by cleaning out some items cluttering the basement, so not only is the basement dry, it's also usable again.
