Basement Waterproofing - Water damage can have a major impact on your home or business. It only takes a little bit of water to cause major water damage. That damage can lead to a whole host of structural issues for your building & air quality issues in your home.
Foundation Repair - The most common cause of foundation damage boils down to unstable soil conditions causing structures to shift. Whether that’s because of high moisture content or poor soil conditions, this movement throws off the weight distribution of your home, causing potentially catastrophic damage.
Crawlspace Repair - Much of the air you breathe comes from your crawlspace. By reducing moisture, soil gases & mold/mildew you will be improving the overall air quality in your home.

Have you heard someone say “Oh, that’s just the house settling?” Of course you have! Many people don’t think twice about foundation settlement, but it can have devastating impacts on your Michigan home. When your foundation settles, it often-times settles in uneven ways. That throws off the delicate balance of your home on the foundation, leading to damage. This damage needs to be repaired quickly before it has a chance to spread and affect your whole home.
The solution to this is installing Helical Piers. Helical piers are one of the most common solutions for foundation settlement issues in Michigan. These piers are large steel rods that act like a large screw to help provide your home’s foundation with the stability it needs.
How do Helical Piers work? Helcial Piers are steel rods that are strategically placed around the foundation of your home. Then, with a hydraulic press, are drilled deep into the soil to bypass any unstable soil and get to the solid bedrock beneath. Once stable soil has been found, a bracket is mounted on top of the pier and the lifting process begins. When the proper amount of lift has been achieved, the hydraulics are removed.
This home was located in Gregory on Lakeview Drive and the homeowner had initially requested that we install helical piers on a foundation that was failing. After inspection of the property we realized that the foundation was severely compromised and was unable to be repaired. Instead, a new foundation would need to be created.
Along with the compromised foundation, we had found that the soil in the area had a high water table. Due to this, we would not be able to dig a traditional foundation. Instead of digging a tradtional 42 inch footing for the foundation, we were limited to nearly half the depth, only being able to dig a 22 inch footing. To give additonal support to the new foundation we designed a concrete and steel layout of beams that was placed upon new helical piers placed in the footings. By doing this, a solution was created to not only combat foundation settling but also protect from future damage.
In the end, as seen by the pictures below, we were able to construct a solid foundation for the customer. From failing foundation to structurally sound, their home was now much safer, eliminating any worry. Along with this, the customer left a 5-star review detailing their experience with us and how they were impressed by our creative solutions.
