Travis, Jay, and Devin did an excellent job on our basement wall. Would highly recommend this company and these three guys.
I am very satisfied with the work and the work people who repointed and parged part of my basement concrete block wall. At my request, they stapled up big sheets of plastic to keep dust from the work out of the other, finished part of my basement. They were knowledgeable and efficient and were ready to alter the work order to make the outcome better. I appreciated that the worker phoned each day to say when they would arrive here. The office staff is very efficient and emailed me all the receipts, etc. The person who did the original estimate gave me a packet of the materials to keep. So, I was well-informed about what would be done. All in all, a professional, thoughtful group. I would definitely hire them again.
I hired Midstate, out of five quotes from local companies, to install French drains, a sub-pump, install a wall support system for my foundation and encapsulate my crawlspace. Everything was impressive from the evaluation, the quote through the final walk through. I am so impressed by every employee I have interacted with through the project. Our crawlspace was a scary nightmare and now it's a dry, clean, usable space. I'm so happy I chose to go with Midstate.
Midstate was amazing from the first time I called. Was very impressed with how quick they came to do an estimate. Steve did a great job repairing a section of my basement wall and explaining everything.
We had water coming into our basement from three different locations. We got three different estimates, and Midstate was the fairest and their plan sounded as the most sensible. We had a trench dug along two walls and a sump pump installed. The job was completed exactly as stated, professionally and on schedule (it took three days total). We then requested an additional job to repair a window well that was leaking. There, too, the estimate was fair, and the final price turned out to be even lower than we expected because, when they came to do the job, they realized the repair needed was simpler than they initially thought, as the window well would not need to be replaced after all. Overall, we had a fantastic experience with everyone we dealt with: Courtney was always prompt and helpful to schedule the appointments; Shawn gave us fair estimates and clear explanations of what the projects would entail and how long they would take; Travis and Ryan, who did the first job, and Lloyd, who did the second one, were all great—professional, hard-working, courteous, clean. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience and highly recommend Midstate Basement Authorities.
Eric and his team were a pleasure to work with. They provided prompt, professional and quality service. I would highly recommend them for all of your basement needs. Work we had done was floor and wall encapsulation, foundation parging and install a sump pump and dehumidifier. Eric and his team was able to complete this in the agreed upon time period and we are very happy with the work. See before and after photos attached.
Midstate has done a great job with a basement wall crack inherited when I bought the house. The previous owner not only hired MidState Basement, but provided him with a lifetime warranty that was transferred to me when I bought the property. Midstate not only honored the warranty through the various difficulties I had with the crack, but were understanding, prompt, and worked hard to find a resolution to the leaking crack. Additional work needed to be done to ensure there would be no issue in the future (environmental issues impacted the previous repair). Before any work was performed the team at MidState worked with me on solution options. When we decided on the work, the MidState team scheduled the work during this COVID 19 phase. The team showed up with face masks and understood how to work safely during these uncertain times. The team completed the work as they described it to me in the amount of time they predicted. They were courteous and left the work area just as clean as they found it. I am please overall with the work that was performed and how the Mid State team handled my problem very professionally. If you are looking for effective, efficient, friendly service, this is the company to do business with. Thank you Midstate for all that you’ve done for me!!!
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.
We recently moved to the area and bought a house that turned out to have a garage that leaked whenever we had heavy rain. It must have been very dry when the previous owner lived there as they never mentioned it..... Midstate diagnosed the problem (an exterior wall that seeps) and their drainage installation and wall sealing solved the problem. They were responsive, reliable and a pleasure to work with.
I have lived in an old Greek Revival in Jacksonville for the past 33 years. For all those years my basement has been a pathway for ground water heading to Cayuga Lake. It varied from very damp to extremely wet, depending on the season. As you can imagine mold and mildew have been a way of life. I invited Eric to come and see what he could do to help my situation. He made it seem pretty simple, just install a perimeter drain that emptied into a new sump pit and pump it outside. We then went the extra step and had him encapsulate the floor and walls with a moisture barrier. The crew doing the work was very polite and professional and finished in just a few days. I now am using my basement for things that I was unable to before, like basic storage. And my whole house is less damp and that lingering mold smell is gone. It has been a dramatic and long over due upgrade to my house, and I couldn`t be happier. If you have moisture problems in your basement I highly recommend Eric and Midstate Basements.
Eric and crew were great to work with on a big job they just finished for us replacing the entire foundation of an old house in Ithaca. The original foundation was in danger of collapse. Working with Taitem Engineering the crew at Midstate assessed the scope of the job and designed a fixed bid job to shore up the house, replace several joists and remove the old foundation walls. Along the way the entire HVAC system had to be removed and put back and plumbing and electrical had to be changed across the basement. The house looked like it was being raised up mid job with the old foundation removed and the house safely shored up. After removing part of the old foundation walls the crew found further structural issues with the house framing. They consulted with the engineer and came up with a plan to fix the problem. It was a change in scope and design, but Eric didn't change the price of the job. They changed the footer and wall design and worked with me to get the approval to change the job. The additional shoring that was needed on the job because of the change didn't cost us anything extra and now the house is level, secure and stronger than it was before by a longshot. Plumbing, HVAC and electrical are all back in place and passed inspection. Erik even personally made sure the hot water was on and working throughout the house. The crew worked hard on the job on time and professionally each step of the way. Eric also managed multiple subcontractors on the job and dealt with the permitting process and the City of Ithaca directly. Last day on the job they were cleaning up small specks of material that I would have missed or not really cared about. They also communicated well with the church next door to use their parking lot for access. After the job they returned the church parking lot to better than it was before by grading out some gravel others had snowplowed into a corner before Midstate's job even started. I've already recommended Midstate to friends and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.
I needed a foundation repair due to frost heaving. I hired an independent structural engineer, who worked with Midstate Basement (mostly Eric, who was in charge of the operation) after I hired them as well. Eric implemented the plan of the engineer and contributed some own solutions for the repair of a retaining wall. When issues arose during the excavation Eric proactively contacted the engineer, and came up with a solution. I did appreciate that he double-checked his work with the engineer, which for me as a home-owner was reassuring. Eric completed the work for what I believe to be a competitive price. Of course only time will tell whether the repair will hold up (it's just been a week since completion), but it appears to be professionally done and I am hoping that this will be a long-lasting fix.
