Crawl space was wet from a plumbing problem. When fixing that we noticed a support had tipped and no longer touching the I beam. We are concerned that the problem may be on going.

A few leaky areas in basement. I noticed this during the last big rain storm we had a few weeks ago. I own my home. Thanks Tina

We have a great deal of mold under the house in the crawl space. We like an estimate for getting rid of the mold and to not have mold continually grow.

I have a crawl space that has multiple pilings, a cement floor that is dry, pressure treated wood side walls that are insulated. Just purchased a commercial dehumidifier to bring the humidity down, but the odor remains. Thank you, Steve

Hi, you installed your system in our bungalow about 2 years ago. Recent storms cut power and we flooded down there twice. One, we are due for your annual service, and two, Id like to discuss possible upgrade to include your dc battery backup pump. We currently have this property for sale, but I’d still like to discuss this. Thanks.

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

Camp Daggett Rd. in Petoskey
****o, on Wednesday, 11-06-19, we found water in our basement. Not a lot of water, but enough to cause us a concern. It appears to be a one time episode, but we would like to discuss a review of our basement. Unfortunately, our basement is mainly finished. We are the home owner, but would be happy to pay for an inspection. Thanks, Jon Booth

Woodland Dr. in Petoskey
We have a crack in our foundation wall. Full basement. Crack is down 3 blocks from the top, in the middle of the wall expanse. We would like an estimate for repair options. Thank you. Joe

Summit in Petoskey
Mudslide in basement. Crack in basement wall

Depew Rd. in Petoskey
Crawl space/attic with previous water damage. House has since been updated, but I am curious what something like this would cost and if the sill plate is something that could also be repaired at the same time. We are the homeowners so I would only want to do this if there wasn't a fee.
