Foundation Solutions 360: The Foundation and Crawl Space Experts
Welcome to Foundation Solutions 360! We’re the premier foundation repair and crawl space specialists in Southeastern and South Central Michigan. We serve a 17-county service area encompassing the Detroit metro area, Lansing, Ann Arbor, and more, from our home base in Macomb. We put our three generations of experience to work on every home, and guarantee our work with a lifetime warranty on most services.
We’ve grown a full suite of complementary services during our more than 20 years in the industry, and we’d love to help you out with your foundation or crawl space.
If your walls are leaning, bowing, or buckling, or your chimney is cracked, chances are you need foundation repair. These issues, no matter how small now, signal a more serious problem down the road. There are a number of solutions available to address these issues.
Wall beams are a good solution for leaning or bowing walls that have yet to reach a critical failure point. Wall beams are also a great alternative to other methods such as wall anchors, particularly when digging outside the home is not possible. Our system applies 1,000 pounds of pressure on each beam in your foundation’s wall, straightening the wall while preventing further bowing or leaning.
Many foundation cracks are relatively small, but they grow over time, leading to instability and the possibility of water seepage and its associated damage. We repair cracks using low-pressure injection of either an epoxy or polyurethane, ensuring the crack is fully filled and the repair is durable and will last for years to come.
Problem soil – soil that has an unstable top layer and/or that shrinks and expands unevenly due to freeze/thaw cycles – can cause your foundation to sink. Sinking can happen evenly, where the entire foundation sinks at the same rate, or unevenly, where one wall sinks more quickly than the other walls. The latter can cause floors to be uneven and can lead to structural problems.
In the case of a sinking foundation we employ a solution called helical pairing. Helicals are essentially large screws that are sunk into the ground surrounding the foundation. They connect with a bracket that’s attached to the foundation, and provide a great deal of stability once installed.
Water leakage can cause serious damage to your home. Standing water can lead to excessive moisture and mold and mildew issues, and water can weaken and damage your foundation. It’s critical to have your basement waterproofed to prevent this damage. At Foundation Solutions 360, we employ a number of tools to prevent water leakage and standing water. Waterproofing your basement is just one solution. In stubborn cases, we can also install sump pump systems to pull the water away from the interior of your home.
Crawl Space Repair
In addition to foundations and basements we also provide a full complement of services designed to address crawl space issues. Your crawl space is susceptible to moisture, and excessive moisture can lead to a number of problems ranging from health issues to pest infestation to foundation damage. Crawl space repair and maintenance is essential, especially in Michigan’s winter months!
Crawl Space Encapsulation
One of the best ways to prevent excessive moisture from permeating your home is crawl space encapsulation. Sealing your crawl space will not only keep moisture and its associated health issues and structural damage out, but provides a number of additional benefits. Encapsulation can keep either warm or cool air in, which helps your home run more efficiently and saves on utility bills. It can also turn your crawl space into far more usable space and storage.
We’ll work with you to decide whether crawl space encapsulation or one of our other crawl space repairs is the right solution for you.
Crawl Space Power Post
A power post for crawl spaces can correct noisy or sagging floors and windows and doors that don’t close properly. As opposed to the jacks you can find in hardware stores a power post can bear far more weight and is protected from rust and corrosion.
Our services don’t stop with foundation and crawl space repair. We have a number of other home improvement and indoor air quality solutions for homeowners in Michigan.
Our whole home dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air, preventing humidity-related health issues and damage.
Sump Pump and Backup Systems
For basements that are prone to flooding sump pumps are a necessity, automatically removing the excess water and preventing damage, mold, and structural issues. Sump pump backup systems ensure that the water is pumped out even if your main system fails.
Bright White Wall Liners
Bright white wall liners allow you to make your basement a livable space, free of mold and mildew. They help prevent excess moisture and leave your basement a perfect place for an additional multiuse room.
