The Rochester branch contacted me after the Livonia branch wasted my time for a month. Their crew came out to complete my job within 24 hours of original contact after learning about the issues from the other branch.Nate and Noah were courteous and professional, and were both very apologetic about the way the other branch had treated me. They completed the job in a timely fashion and throughly cleaned up afterward. It was clear they take pride in their work and in the FSM brand.My concrete slab was sinking in a few places in my house, causing significant separation between my base boards and floor. FSM was able to stabilize my floors and move them back up to their original locations. I am very happy with the results

How We Waterproof Your Basement

Does your basement easily fill with water, especially during periods of heavy rainfall? Do you have plumbing throughout your basement? Does your basement have cracked floors where water is coming in? If so, you need to hire a waterproofing expert. At Foundation Systems of Michigan, we have the tools and skilled technicians to assist with your wet basement. Whether it’s by installing a sump pump system, or an interior drainage system, FSM can find the right solution for you!

Dry Walls, Happy Homes

Control Basement Wall Moisture

What We Do

The worst thing to have in your basement is uncontrolled moisture. Moisture is what mold needs to grow, and that means if you have any organic material in your basement (fabric, wood, carpet, books, and prized mementos), it can get ruined—and fast. But moisture doesn’t just get in through open doorways and windows. It can get in through even the smallest cracks in your walls. That’s why our first step in basement waterproofing is sealing your walls with an industry-leading vapor barrier.

What We Use

Keep Your Basement Dry

Control Ground Water Seepage

What We Do

It’s impossible to keep water 100% out of your basement. Doing so could actually increase the pressure it puts on your home from the outside. Instead, you want to control it. You want to gather it all up and send it away from your foundation so that it can’t damage your home. That’s why an interior drainage and sump pump system is so important: they remove water and relieve the pressure put on your foundation, protecting your home from water damage.

What We Use

Combatting Humidity for a Cozy Home

Control the Environment

What We Do

The final piece to the puzzle of basement waterproofing is an energy-efficient dehumidifier. Mold spores in the air can cause you and your family to have allergic reactions like coughing and shortness of breath. Not to mention, mold also eats away at your home! A dehumidifier cleans the air of mold spores and robs it of its food source—moisture. At FSM, our dehumidifiers aren’t just a guaranteed breath of fresh air, they’re easy on energy bills, too.

What We Use

We help protect everything you love, starting with your home’s foundation.
