Live at the bottom of a slope. A lot of draining water pools at foundation. With especially hard rains, water will top my window well and flood basement, which is unfinished.

Kuehnle Street in Ann Arbor
We have a basement systems ultra sump III. It is probably 7 years old with the original battery. It has never been serviced, and I think it probably needs to be serviced. Is this something you do? Can I get an estimate? As far as I know, there is nothing wrong with it. All lights are green.

cracked foundation walls, settling, water in basement

Tacoma Circle in Ann Arbor
We have a cement front porch that was bricked over. When it was bricked over, it was also extended. We probably need a frost wall extended down to stop the bricks from shifting. Do you do this? Another issue we have is our crawl space under our family room causes our room to feel cold in the winter. It should be insulated to stop this from happening. Do you do this? Thank you, Linda Zimmer

Towner Blvd in Ann Arbor
The first thaw of the Spring causes a corner of our basement to leak. Looks like it is coming through the walls and puddles lightly in one corner.

Duncan St in Ann Arbor
Hi! FSM encapsulated our crawl space at 601 Duncan St in Ann Arbor in late 2017, and last year we added a sump pump and dehumidifier as well. After all this, we're unfortunately still getting crawl space smell into our house when we run the AC - luckily it's not moldy/dirt smell anymore, but it's still not a pleasant odor (I think it might be the vapor lock material still of g***ing - is that possible?). I therefore have a few questions for you and hope you might be able to offer some insight: 1. Would sealing the duct work with aerosol from the inside prevent crawl space air from getting sucked into the system and circulating throughout the house? 2. If so, is this something you guys do? If not, is there an outfit you'd recommend? 3. When we did the encapsulation we decided it wasn't necessary to drop a vent into the crawl space because the system was leaky enough to provide heat down there in the winter so that the pipes won't freeze. Any idea whether we *should* get a vent installed if we do decide to seal the duct work to continue having enough heat down there in the winter? Thanks! Holger Elischberger

N. Ashley in Ann Arbor
I get a bit of water in my basement at times. I have paneling in the basement and I would not want to have to strip it off. But I think possibly something could be done outside to help this problem.

We were out of town from March 16 to May 11, 2019. When we came back, we found the damp carpet area along the wall. We are drying it now but like to find and fix the problem.

Steeplechase Dr in Ann Arbor
We currently have a B-dry system in our basement but need to have it extended about 5-7 feet. Hoping to get an estimate to have this work done. Email is best for contact and scheduling. I'm also happy to email photos if it would help. Thank you!!

Small crack in exterior foundation. Water seeping into basement.

Snowberry Ridge Rd in Ann Arbor
There is one area in my basement where water appears to seep up when the outside ground is saturated. This happens a couple times per year so it's not a major problem, but I am interested in learning of any solutions that keep the water out of the area.

Parkwood Ave in Ann Arbor
****o. I'm wondering if once the encapsulation has been completed, can I use the crawl space for storage? Is there an option to have poured concrete on the floor? Many Thanks for any and all information. -Jillian Hopper

Rumsey Drive in Ann Arbor
Would like to get a quote to have our crawlspace encapsulated. It currently has a dirt floor and the vapor barrier is disintegrating. No other known issues. May also get a quote for radon mitigation.
