    Wanted a second estimate for work required to form up foundation. Salesperson Jim gave estimate but when Andy came out he recommended different and more costly fix.Went with that but not happy about extra expense , extra time needed to finish foaming and support work on smartjacks. One area in in house still a bit shakey. Overall an excellent improvement on floor support. This was a difficult project with small crawlspace clearance to work in. Was surprised at how costly this project turned out to be. Crawlspace door anchor that was put into concrete block came loose after first use. I used a concrete patch to put it back in and that hes held so far. I ended up taking pictures of work under house to show Jim and make sure the things not done would get fixed on follow up work. I have not been under house since but assume Andy took care of it all. Generally good response to requests.

    The Zeeland rental home had some water issues and we were called for a solution to a dry basement. There was water leaking from where the floor meets the wall in a corner of a room in the basement. The basement is finished and the water soaked 5 ft of the carpet and ow the area is squishy. There was no sump pump in the basement and there hasn't been a water issues in years. 

    We installed the WaterGuard to keep the basement dry.

The TripleSafe system uses a powerful sump pump set at the lowest level for normal functioning but in heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful set a bit higher in the liner will take over and in case of a power outage, our UltraSump battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level takes over.
