I need an estimate for (1) or (2) egress windows. It's an old 1930's home, and the basement is mostly unfinished. I'd like a window installed in the main large area, and if possible, in the "raised room". In the raised room, the floor is an entire step up from the rest of the basement, but the ceiling height it the same. Then there is cinder block ledge along the wall where the windows are located and an egress would need to be installed there. Is this something you can assist with. I can send photos if that helps.

Damp area of carpet and wood paneling running along one wall in the basement, smells musty
I have 2 cracks in my poured concrete basement wall that are causing water to enter my basement.
Concrete slab sinking in front of garage doors.
I just sent a concern a little earlier about bowed walls. We also need a radon mitigation system installed, so if we could get a quote on that too, that'd be great. Thanks!
We are in the process of buying a home. The garage walls, all concrete blocks, are bowing inward. The structural engineer recommended three options to stabilize the walls, steel columns, carbon fiber strips, or soil anchors. We are looking for price estimates in order to negotiate a lower price on the home. Thanks!
