    I had such a great experience with the team. From installation (Ben, Adam, Kory, and Dan) to having the anchors tightened (Zack and Josh). Everyone was polite, informative, and professional. Highly recommend this company.

    Every person from this company was professional, respectful, and hard working. We had a big job done in our basement and they completed it very quickly. They did a very good job of covering our property to protect it from dust while they worked.…

About our Grand Rapids location

Like most Michigan cities, homeowners in Grand Rapids don’t have to drive too far to find a view of a beautiful Great Lake. But this means the water table in the city is high. Located in the west-central part of the lower peninsula, the Grand Rapids area has many smaller lakes and 5 major rivers running through it. 

Grand Rapids, and the surrounding areas of Muskegon, Rockford, and Holland, deal with water in their basements and crawl spaces often because the zone of saturation is so incredibly close to the surface. Water vapor easily passes through common building materials, such as concrete and wood, causing high humidity in your basement or crawl space, and even flooding. 

Bowing walls and sinking and sagging foundations are the result of prolonged humidity and water intrusion problems. Grand Rapids’ clay soil mix doesn’t help. This type of soil absorbs water quickly and becomes heavy. Heavy soil can cause hydrostatic pressure against your foundation, resulting in cracked or bowing walls.

It’s best to get any foundation issues addressed as soon as the problem signs show themselves. Left untreated, especially in an area like Grand Rapids, you could end up with a more costly solution. FSM is here to help with your foundation repair, basement waterproofing and crawl space repair needs.
