I have an older home that needs to have more support of floors and water proofing of basement

Lincoln Ct in Chelsea
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. We already have two sump pumps, one that is plugged into an electric outlet and another that works on water pressure if the first one fails.

Damp blocks in some areas of the basement. Efflorescence is noticeably in areas especially under the front porch area in the basement and a few other areas. The basement had a slight leak about a month ago when it rained extremely hard.

Guinan Drive in Chelsea
We bought a older home with a crawlspace (the furnace is located in this crawlspace). The house smells musty. We would like someone to come out and evaluate the crawlspace and provide us with an estimate to encapsulate it. We also need a floor support replaced in the crawlspace. Thank you!

foundation repair of powder room which was an add on and not part of the original structure. estimate for new sump pump in basement

south lake dr in Chelsea
Foundation under sun porch needs stabilizing. 40 lineal feet total.

Gene Dr. in Chelsea
When we run our dryer, there is an extremely bad odor - like death/mold/rot. We've had dryer technicians out twice, both did not find anything wrong with the dryer, vent, etc. The laundry room is over a earth floor crawl space, so our last thought is that there might be something dead or moldy in the crawl space. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!

My kitchen floor is uneven and wells are cracking when I had an inspection done years ago and they told me I needed braces poles placed under my kitchen floor.

Heim Rd in Chelsea
We have a kitchen bump out that is original to the house (built in 1996) that has pier supports. The pier supports are rotting and the footings are completely buried. I think new footings may be required.
