Basement leeks

Horseshoe Bend in Dexter
Our basement wall, around and under the plastic pipe that goes out to our septic field, has been crumbling for quite some time. Small amounts of water on the floor are becoming more common. Time to replace.

Merkel Rd in Dexter
I would like an estimate for a whole house generator. However, I would need financing options preferably a "same as cash" option. Let me know what is possible. I am a current customer of FSM - I had a large dehumidifier (which you still maintain) and sealed sump pit installed 2.5 years ago. Thank you!

Black Forest Dr in Dexter
We had some water damage in our basement - we noticed wet carpet and warped baseboards. The basement has drywall and the drywall did not appear to be wet. We need someone to come out and identify/fix the source of the water getting in.

Zeeb Rd in Dexter
Water in basement intermittently for the past 30 years. Patrick has fixed one corner. Have had others make proposals. Want to know what your engineers recommend. Thank you for your prompt ***istance.

Fieldstone Dr in Dexter
We are the Homeowner. Standing water in two paces in our unfinished basement- storage area and utility room.

Dexter-Pinckney Road in Dexter
We need an external sump pump put in ASAP. Our lower level (in a trilevel) is flooding every time it rains heavy and with a wood foundation, this appears to be our only option at the moment.

, Meadow creek dr in Dexter
I have constant water running into my sump/crock. Until I can figure out grading of my property I need complete coverage for my basement

Daisy Ln in Dexter
The foundation of the home we just purchased is leaking. It was built in 1978, and is on a block foundation. The walls are damp and mildewy, and there have been trickles of water after heavy rains.

Grand St. in Dexter
We are in the process of selling, we just had an inspection done and need an evaluation and an estimate on the costs of foundation repair as quickly as possible.

Dexter-Pinckney Rd in Dexter
Exactly like the picture at the top of your web site. Affecting only one area of basement. No plumbing leaks. Block walls are dry.

North Meadows Trail in Dexter
Getting ready to finish our basement and was curious about waterproofing options.

Hawthorn Hill in Dexter
There's a smaller 3"x3" piece of our concrete basement floor that's recently pitted, maybe 1/4" deep. At the bottom is black sand-like material. I haven't noticed any other spots (recently reorganized/shuffled around the entire basement). No leaks, just one wall crack in another part of the basement which is longer but very thin. The only other thing that may be at all relevant is that our sump is pretty much bone dry year round (even with larger rains and melts), but our neighbor's never runs either so I don't believe there's an issue there. But in any event, I'd very much appreciate it if you could take a look. Would it make sense to have me send a picture or two first--don't want to waste your time if nothing but a cosmetic issue :) Thanks in advance, Mike

I am having water in my basement, looks like it is coming through the cinderblock foundation in my house. It is an issue in three specific areas of my basement and after last nights rain (4/30/2019) water was covering almost 1/4 of my basement. I am looking for someone to come out and give me a quote on remedying this issue asap.

Concrete patio cracking and uneven, would like to level and repair. Patio is off walkout basement.

Base Lake Dr. in Dexter
We have a crawl space, dirt floor, approx 4-5 feet tall. We have a currently operational sump pump (probably at least 15 years old) that runs constantly because our water table is very high. We are interested in adding a backup pump. We do have a backup generator for electricity - we'd like a quote for a standard secondary pump or one of your battery backup secondary pumps. Thanks.

Parkridge Dr in Dexter
We built our home 4-5 years ago and we have a few small cracks in our basement foundation. One of the cracks shows some water leakage (minimum leakage).

Dexter Pinckney Rd in Dexter
We have lots of water leaking in through one wall in our basement. A steady stream of water in one particular location.

Dexter Pinckney Rd in Dexter
Help! We need some basement waterproofing done soon. We bought this house 18 months ago, last year it leaked some, the last two days with the large amount of snow melt and rain, it did some more serious flooding. We look forward to making some progress in this issue soon. Thanks

Huron River Dr in Dexter
