Structural Repair Expertise in Alpena

Alpena is in the northeastern part of Michigan’s lower peninsula, with its eastern border along Lake Huron. The view of the water is breathtaking, but that same lake water is devastating when it causes problems for your home’s foundation, basement or crawl space.  

Alpena, and the surrounding areas of Hubbard Lake, Oscoda and Tawas City, typically have high water tables and year-round precipitation. When spring snow melt is added to the water table, wet or humid basements and crawl spaces in the Alpena area are all too common. Water in the soil surrounding your foundation can lead to mold, mildew, seeping cinder blocks, and rotting wood. 

The soil in the Alpena area is mostly sand, which brings its own set of difficulties. Although sandy soil has good drainage properties, it can cause structural support issues like settling or shifting foundations. 

FSM has proven solutions to stabilize sinking foundations and bring your floors back to level ground. We are experts in foundation, basement, and crawl space repair and we can help you create a safer and healthier home. Using cutting-edge products and specialized installers, you’ll have peace of mind that your biggest investment is protected.
