Woodcrest Dr. in Alpena
We have a concrete slab that sank in and the water pools at the front of our house. We are not sure if our front yard is slopped enhough for the water to run off.. We also have water that enters our basement in various spots on the front side of the house. There is a hole in our foundation from a previous plumber and during heavy rains, water pours in through that hole. Lastly, we would like seamless gutters installed on our house. Thank you for your time. Rebecca Tankersley

There are a few cracks in the foundation of my house. No water in the basement but the kitchen floor slopes downwards and all of the floors in the house are not level. There's one room upstairs that slopes by about 4". I had purchased the house in 2008. It doesn't seem like the foundation has moved any more but I would like to have an estimate on what it would cost to secure the foundation to make sure the house is sturdy.

Sir/Ma'am, Mr. Adam Sharp came to my residence (shown above) to quote my basement. He did a great job and has been wonderful to work with. My quote has been completed now for a few days. I've contacted Drymich by phone and this information sheet several times to have the quote sent to my e-mail. I can't approve the work and get you paid without the quote in hand. I still have not received the quote. The quote was also done a couple different ways. I need the quote to reflect the entire basement as well as the dehumidifier system. Below are the following items I need from you. Please get these to me as soon as possible. Please also add my wife so you have an alternate e-mail: mmarze**** .

E. Campbell St. in Alpena
Water seeps in from all sides and center of my basement.

US north in Alpena
Had FSM spray for mold, install new center jacks, and encapsulation this summer. They also removed two other support beam structures, but didn’t replace them, as they felt they were not offering any support. I am now finding i have bounce on my subfloor, and some areas that have actually bowing down, probably because the other support beams were removed. Would appreciate a call. Thank you, Wayne
