W Lewiston in Ferndale
We bought a house after the great flood a few years back. Since then we have noted some concrete block decay and water seepage (probably due to hydrostatic pressure) during times of heavy rain. Hoping to know how much it would cost to repair the block and provide a sealant coat. Not sure we need to go full sump pump - but would be good to get an expert opinion.

E Saratoga St in Ferndale
Addition to the rear of the house seems to be settling. The back door is increasingly hard to lock, and I’m re adjusting the strike plate weekly.

Camden St. in Ferndale
we have had some intermittent leaking issues over 7 years we've been in our house (built in 1942) and flooding (major in 2014 storm, minor about a month ago after a sudden torrential rain). There is a very old sump pump system installed, but we don't know much about it. It appears to pipe outside under the gr***, but that corner of the basement is where the leaking comes from, and some mold has been growing there. We'd like a comprehensive solution for these issues so we can get back to safely enjoying our basement again with ***urance that our basement will be ok in the future. Thanks very much!

Floors uneven and walls are slanted

PEARSON ST in Ferndale
Efflorescence on basement walls

SAINT LOUIS ST in Ferndale
I recently purchased a house in which the seller had some partial waterproofing done in the basement before I brought it. Now the rains have started that is proving insufficient to say the least. The firm that did that work have advised to finish running the trench around the remainder of the basement and installing a sump pump. It seems sensible to me, but I'm no expert so I'd appreciate your ***essment of the situation and a quote if you'd be willing. I initially spoke to them in case any work could be covered on the existing warranty, but it appears not so I'm not wed to them at all for the new work. Thanks, Sam

Wordsworth in Ferndale
