Without mentioning names, the 'other' company's sump system was incorrectly installed, causing sand to fill the bucket and the drain pipes. Not only did the basement flood, it created a bow on that east wall, weakening an existing bow. No response at all from 'them' to my pleas.So I called FSM – immediate response! Greg Q assessed the situation and stood by me as we resolved things, in stages of 3 visits. Sump bucket is now properly installed, drain system improved upon, basement floor trenches and finger drains to respond to hydrostatic pressure, wall anchors installed where needed. Each repair session consisted of a team of no-nonsense, in-sync, yet very approachable and very respectful hard workers. The house was spotless when they left, inside and out. These folks are serious problem solvers. And just like that, this house finally has a no-nonsense, in-sync dry basement and a solid foundation. Thank you FSM – Team Foreman and Team, and the very responsive and supportive Office, and most definitely, Thank you Greg Q.

Great follow up after initial call. Inspector showed up at date and time promised, follow up later for any questions. Quote was fair and included things others uncharged for. Matt K., Robert W. And Elijah M. did a great job. They showed up first thing and got the job done. They went above and beyond with cleaning crawl space. They were polite and professional and when the job was done, took time to show me what they had done and explain equipment. Would use again!

Foundation Experts in Traverse City

Homeowners like you in Traverse City, MI, are used to sun, sand and beautiful lakes. However, when your basement or crawl space turns into a lake, the result is far less enjoyable. 

Located near some of Michigan’s most beautiful waterways, Traverse City and the surrounding areas of Cheboygan, Cadillac, and Mackinaw City have more than just lake water to contend with. Their year-round precipitation, heavy snow melt, and high humid summers cause moisture in your basement or crawl space.

The constant water vapor in Traverse City causes musty smells during the summer months, and cold, drafty floors in the winter. These concerns make crawl spaces a less than desirable foundation type in Northern Michigan. If unwanted moisture is left untreated, it often leads to uneven floors and sagging foundations. Sometimes problem signs are noticed after the damage is done, so it’s good to periodically take a look and assess the situation regardless of problem signs. 

Traverse City’s sandy soil is good for drainage, but even the best soil can’t keep water out of your foundation when the saturation level is especially high.

If it sounds all too familiar, you’re not alone. Many in the Traverse City area feel your frustration and know that FSM is here to help with foundation repair, basement waterproofing, and crawl space repair.
