Prosperity Dr in Portage
Pump room ceiling is leaking

I have a piece of old house footing that runs across a doorway that leads from my garage into the lower portion of my split-level house. This is a non-functional piece of footing and straddles my main sewer pipe. The pipe appears to be under the 8 inch thick by 14 inch wide footer. I need about 4 feet removed without breaking the PVC sewer pipe. I am including a link to a few pictures on my One Drive:!AtfnPDcke2NGhLAlnjLMQNiCAk1nJA?e=bgSnzG Please provide me with a rough estimate to have this removed. Thank you. Bruce C.

Valleywood Lane in Portage
We recently had a gl*** block window installed, and noticed some water coming in during a heavy rain. It looks to me like they reopened an existing (possibly previously repaired) crack in the foundation during installation. We are in the process of finishing our basement, so we would like to get this sealed up ASAP.

We currently have an internal french drain in our basement leading back to two sump pumps but I don't think that it's doing its job properly and I also wonder if we have some issues with the foundation wall possibly letting water in.

We have a crack in our basement(unfinished) wall that was supposedly repaired when the inspector mentioned it to the sellers when we bought. It’s been a pain ever since. And this past week has been the worst. The puddles have been getting bigger each time it rains.
