Work orders from Merrill

E Church St by in Merrill

W. Saginaw St. in Merrill
We are downsizing and buying an older home (1960’s) and would like to seal up the basement walls and reduce the dampness that is present. There isn’t any noticeable ponding water but you can see where moisture is present. Approximately 50% of the basement is above grade, and we would like to have the basement restored before we move in in the next few weeks.
