I have a crack in one of the rooms in my house and it keeps getting bigger. I am the homeowner of this property

Harris Street in Ferndale
I bought my house about 4.5 years ago and have had lots of crawlspace problems. The space is not dug out correctly and you can't get anywhere underneath the house from the access door. I have had rats down there because of the openings. My house is currently undergoing renovations and the flooring is not complete so there are areas that the plywood flooring can be pulled up. Anyway - hoping you guys can help or point me in the right direction!

Pilgrim St. in Ferndale
A representative from your company has already come out but the inspection was inadequate. I am not interested in encapsulating my crawl space at this time and this is what the representative focused on. However, I will likely have sump pump installed. I would like a foundation inspection done to ***ess any water damage and what needs to be addressed. I just bought this house and the crawl space has water issues. We have regraded the backyard, extended the downspouts and sealed the crack between the driveway and crawl space and this seems to be doing a good job addressing the flooding. The foundation needs some repair but I want to know how extensive.

Wolcott Street in Ferndale
I have two areas in my basement where I'm getting water coming in when it rains moderately. It's not a m***ive amount of water but would like to figure out how to resolve for good. For one area I re-graded a portion of my back of house but it did not completely resolve the problem.

Allen St in Ferndale
Water in basement. When I bought my home no awareness of water issues in the basement. Some things are better but a few years ago the basements in the neighborhood flooded. I continue to see water come in from the laundry room near the water heater.. in a miserable room that is like a cellar underneath front porch. Right now I have standing water. A former land lord told me to plug it up... that’s a mess now I can’t get it out. My basement is a wreck and I used to hang out down there. Help please

Need a solution for water coming into basement through drain and walls

Chestnut St. in Ferndale
Hi, We live in a new construction home (built in 2015) but our egress window is now leaking. Furthermore, the well for the egress window is full of water. Thankfully, our basement is unfinished, but I'm afraid that the water is soaking our insulation and could cause mold. Can you please give us a quote for fixing this leak? Thanks!
