Facts About Berkley

Prior to settlement, the land which would become Berkley consisted largely of dense forests and some isolated pockets of swampland. Many in the region deemed the areas north and west of Detroit as uninhabitable or impassible due to the harshness of the swamps beyond Detroit, but as adventurers pushed out through the interminable swamp, they found beautiful scenery beyond the wet prairie of Northern Wayne County. As it became well known that there was “fine farming country” to the north and west of Detroit great excitement was raised and people began to flock to what was then all known as Royal Oak. Land in what would later become Berkley began being sold to farmers who cut down forests and otherwise prepared the land for farming. By the 1840s. Berkley contained a great number of dairy farms. The 1910s brought significant growth to the area with the completion of the Highland Park Ford Plant. As farms were sold and turned into subdivisions, there was pressure to formally incorporate the land. In 1923, Berkley was incorporated as a village. At the time Elmer Cromie had named the road that ran through his farm Berkley and the “Berkley School” was then under construction, so the name Berkley was chosen for the village.

The Wall Street Crash of 1929 brought growth in Berkley to a halt. Roughly 90% of the 5,558 residents in Berkley lost their jobs when the market crashed. Within a year, the city’s population was dropping and in 1932 voters chose to incorporate their Village into a City to gain more oversight over taxes and other issues facing the community. In the 1940s, suburbanization and the post-war boom economy drove significant development in the area. The current Berkley High School was built in 1949 and the city reached a population peak of 23,375, in 1960. Downtown Berkley stretches along 12 Mile Road between Greenfield Road and Coolidge Highway, and along Coolidge Highway between 12 Mile Road and 11 Mile Road. Downtown Berkley is home to many restaurants, boutiques, clothing stores, and retail shops. Berkley’s municipal offices, public library, and public safety headquarters are located near the intersection of 12 Mile Road and Coolidge Highway. Downtown Berkley hosts an annual Art Bash, which drew roughly 10,000 people to the city’s commercial sector in 2016. The art bash brings local artists from all over Michigan to sell art from photographs, garden art, jewelry and pottery to clothing accessories and paintings. Local stores and shops also participate in the festivities holding sidewalk sales. the city is an active participant in the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, a popular classic car showcase in the Metro Detroit area. Berkley hosts a classic car parade Downtown, called the Berkley CruiseFest. It holds the festivities one day before the official date of the Dream Cruise and has done so every year since 1995.

Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Services

Cracks can form in foundations new and old, and commonly appear on your basement walls or floor. These cracks can vary in size depending on the amount of water pressure around the exterior of the foundation. It is common to see staining, moisture or dampness on the floor or walls after a heavy or saturating rainfall. In addition, you may have noticed some discolored, textured, musty build-up on your walls and floor. This mold and mildew build-up can appear in many different areas, and thrive in a moist, damp environment. Mold and mildew can cause serious health conditions such as as allergies, headaches, sinus problems, and asthma. Also, you may have the issue of dry rot. Dry rot affects the walls, baseboards, joists, floor or the bottom of a wooden staircase and occurs when moisture comes in contact with wood for any length of time. This is due to excess moisture entering the foundation through your walls and floor. Dry rot fungus is also a major health concern. Finally, If you are noticing any kind of basement water seepage, your foundation has already entered into an advanced stage of disrepair. Serious structural problems such as bowing and buckling of the foundation walls and floor are more likely to occur. You may also begin to notice mold, mildew, musty orders, bugs and insects or even mud after a rainfall.
