Would like a quote.

Lake Manuka Rd in Gaylord
A few weeks ago you installed an AquaStop Basement Waterproofing System and an Elite 365 AquaStop Sump Pump System in my basement. At the time, I asked the installers what I needed to do to the system in the winter, and the reply was “Nothing.” However, I’m not sure he understood that I would be winterizing the entire house and shutting it down each winter. So here is my question: once the house is winterized, basement temps will often be well below freezing for several months. Won’t this cause the water in the sump and the pumps to freeze and damage them? Please advise me what to do. Thank you.

S Pinecrest Dr in Gaylord
We have had some issues with rodents in our crawl space and we've noticed some moisture along some of the walls. We would like an inspection to see if there are any issues that the rodents caused or if there is a problem with the foundation that could be letting water in.
