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. Everdry Michigan is proud to be a premier basement waterproofing and foundation repair company.

Facts About Sterling Heights
Once known as the Huron River (the original Indian name of the river was Natawasippee), the Clinton river received its current name back on July 17, 1824, as locals renamed the waterway in honor of New York’s governor, DeWitt Clinton. Area pioneers hunted the abundant game in the lush forests along the river and had no problems catching fish in its clear, fast-running waters. The 1882 edition of the History of Macomb outlined the river by stating: “The Huron (Clinton) River enters the town at the headwaters of the hydraulic canal in the Village of Utica, flows through a tortuous channel southeast and leaves the (Sterling) township. The soil in Sterling Heights very productive, generally level and carefully cultivated.
Farmers took advantage of Sterling Height’s rich soil and built large homesteads, harvesting crops of wheat and corn on 100-acre farms. Apple and peach orchards dotted the landscape, and by 1832, more than 2,500 sheep and 1,200 cows grazed on rich grasslands, in addition to more than 500 horses used to work the fields. As it had during the population boom of the 1950s, Sterling Township welcomed a great many residents from the City of Detroit after the War of 1812. A man by the name of Lewis Drake, born in New York and a direct descendant of famed 16th century navigator Sir Francis Drake, came to the area now known as Sterling Heights in 1832 and bought government land at the price of 18 shillings (less than $4) an acre.
His farm was located in the area of Dodge Park and Utica Roads. His farm was located in the Northwest section 14, East of Clinton River along the River Road. By 1880, Sterling Township was a prosperous rural area of neat farm homes and fields of wheat, corn and other crops. Sterling Township’s population was estimated at 2,088.Before Detroit introduced the first “horseless carriages,” the “iron horse” made its way through the farming community of Sterling Township. The Romeo and Utica Stage Line met all passenger trains of the Detroit and Bay City Railroad at the Utica Depot, located just south of what is now Auburn Road in Utica. Trains passed through Sterling Township four times a day. Today, Sterling Heights is considered an integral part of the greater Detroit Metropolitan area. However, back in 1900, the trek from Sterling Township to Detroit was a half-day horseback trip on a rough clay Van Dyke road. Residents relied on Utica Road, a planked toll street, and the Clinton River to transport their goods to market. Just as settlers of yesteryear depended on the Clinton for their livelihood, we as their descendents now rely on the historic river for serenity and recreation. The Clinton River park system has grown in popularity throughout the years, and now features several miles of trails and a number of relaxing picnic areas.
