Work orders from Petoskey

GROVE ST in Petoskey
We purchased a home in Petoskey in October of 2019. We have noticed water leaking into the basement the last couple of days due to the heavy rains and would like it looked at to determine what can be done to correct the issue and what the cost would be.

HOAG RD in Petoskey
We had our entire foundation excavated 10-12 years ago and had underground drainage placed along our foundation and had the walls sealed with a thick asphalt material that was supposed to waterproof our basement. We have had a couple of instances in the past year where we had water in our basement along the south and west wall. We need that area checked to see what is causing the leak. Please call me at 231-348-7662 to set up an appointment to look at our situation. Thanks, Brian Gutowski 231-348-7662

****o, on Wednesday, 11-06-19, we found water in our basement. Not a lot of water, but enough to cause us a concern.
