Lake St in Bear Lake
****o. We have a family cottage (roughly 80 yrs old) on Bear Lake. It is located on a narrow strip of hillside between the road and the lake. The foundation on the lake side of the cottage has had a vertical crack for at least 15 years. It looks like it has opened more this year, and a new crack has formed just around the side of the wall as well. We can tell that that side has dropped by how hard it has become to open/close the patio door. The upper level was just remodeled this Spring, with new windows and all. Looking for some guidance and a quote for repair. Thanks!

Linden Ct in Bear Lake
I have a 1200 square foot block basement. I would like to get an estimate on sealing (keeping pests out) and insulating from the sill plate to the bottom of the upstairs floor via the basement.

Three Pines Rd in Bear Lake
875 sf frame cottage has extensive powder post beetle damage to foundation sills and floor joists. We have a contractor about to start work to remove the floors and replace the damaged wood. The 24" to 30" high crawl space needs to be sealed to control moisture. Several foundation cracks must be addressed, as well as water inflow through vent spaces in the foundation. The house sits very close to the water table within 50 to 70 feet of Bear Lake.
