Our History

In the early '80s, Ithaca, NY native, Robert Leach, started his own small contracting business focusing on detail, solid craftsmanship, and customer service. After over 20 years of success, Robert's son, Eric Leach, returned from the military and joined his father on the team, and together, they incorporated R. Leach & Son Contracting.

Eric knew that they needed to become an expert in one of the many services offered to grow the business. After much research, he found a genuine need for homeowners and local area businesses -- a company that provided quality basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, and foundation repair services. After a lot of hard work, the company grew to become Central New York's leading provider in basement repair and foundation services.

Foundation Repair
From the first phone call to the completion of work, the entire process with Midstate was great. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and punctual. Shawn and TJ worked with us to make sure we were well informed of our options, and of the work they were performing. The project took a few days, and every day TJ let us know when he would be arriving, and kept us informed throughout the process. It was great. We are very happy with the work done. We will definitely call again if we have any other issues, and we will certainly recommend them to anyone in need of basement repair. Thank you!

Concrete Lifting
The crew that worked on my house was professional and timely. They reinforced the basement wall adjoining the garage. They raised the garage floor to its proper height and they put in a concrete apron with a cross driveway drain to handle runoff. They were pleasant to work with and completed everything on time.
Stuart Streeter
Foundation Repair
We had a great experience with Midstate. Had our stone basement repointed, an erosion issue @ the corner if our foundation fixed, & a new sidewalk put in. They were very knowledgeable & professional throughout our entire project. Will definitely be calling them for future projects.

Crawl Space Encapsulation
Midstate encapsulated my crawlspace and did such and amazing job. Between the amazing customer service all the way to the technicians that did the work, I highly recommend. I will definitely be using for any of my needs that they can do in the future.

Concrete Leveling
Michael Barr was amazing!! The service was great and it was scheduled so quickly. We had some settlement that caused a space (not a sinkhole) under 1 driveway and cracks all along our other driveway. He came out and injected foam to level it all out. Then he filled in the cracks and shaved areas of the concrete that needed it. He was so professional. I would definitely recommend him and Midstate Concrete to everyone. Cynthia was so quick in responding to a question I had right before the service. The whole experience was great.

Waterproofing
Midstate Basement has been awesome and we are so happy we decided to have them do work for us. Courtney was wonderful to coordinate with over the phone. They were able to bump us up 3 months early for our sump pump installation. The guys who came to work at the house for two days ( Daniel, Devin, and Jason) were so nice, considerate, and accommodating to all my many questions and concerns. I would recommend them without a doubt.

Crawl Space Encapsulation
Midstate encapsulated my 4-bay crawlspace, put in perimeter drainage with two sump pumps, and installed two dehumidifiers. Highly recommend! Fair price, great team (very hard-working and friendly), they use the best materials, and provide a long warranty. I am very happy that I will not have to worry about my soggy crawl space compromising the structure or air quality of my new home.
