Work orders from Chelsea

Wilkinson in Chelsea
We have mild water in our unfinished basement during and after heavy rain.

Madison St. in Chelsea
FSM team installed a perimeter drain system and new ultimate sump pump in 2019. Recently, the sump pump is causing multiple GFCI outlets to trip, the sump pump is not able to run, and an area of my basement is repeatedly filling with water that has to be wet-vacced. Would like to know if this is something the team can look at and how it relates to my warranty.

S Freer Rd in Chelsea
Hi, we had gotten an estimate from you maybe 2 years ago and was wondering if you had any information you could email me on any finance plans you may offer. I understand we would probably need a new estimate but would just like any information on financing if that is something you offer. The original estimate was for whole basement waterproofing. Thank you

Werkner Rc in Chelsea
Standby generator inquiry

Pierce rd in Chelsea
When it rains very heavily water streams into the utility room around the pipe out to the septic tank and through rebar holes in the wall. This is a new problem that it took awhile to identify because it’s so intermittent. Landscaping around the house was completely redone last year which may have contributed to the problems.

foundation leaking

Machnik Dr in Chelsea
Our house had an after-market egress window installed in our basement. We noticed that small cracks have started at the corners of this window with small-scale leakage. The window well seal is flimsy, the landscaping slants towards the window well, and we need a cap on the window well. The basement is poured concrete floor and walls.

Home is 10 years old. Cement foundation walls developing cracks and there is erosion of the cement wall at the base where it meets the floor. We are interested in possible solutions.
