Basement Waterproofing & Lead Paint Inspection in Ithaca, NY

Ithaca homeowners are quite familiar with changing weather conditions and have become accustomed to dealing with heavy rain fall and melting snow. Keeping ground water seepage out of their basements has been an unenviable task for many Ithaka families, and Ecospect has been here to help!

EcoSpect, Inc. was founded in 1995, to provide professional and trustworthy environmental consulting services, with a specialization in Lead Based Paint, to the upstate New York area. At that time, lead-based paint was an old issue that was getting new attention. Housing-related professionals had known about the potential health effects of lead-based paint exposure for some time but, no one had stepped forward to offer comprehensive procedures for identifying and dealing with Lead-Based Paint. In stepped the US Dept of Housing and Urban Development and its Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing. Since then, EcoSpect has performed thousands of lead investigations based on those Guidelines and continues to provide services based on the health, safety and budget constraints of their clients.

Adam Schrader, Leslie Chaffie and the team of workers were excellent to work with! From Adam's first visit where he explained the process and what would need to be done to fix the radon issue to the day he and his team came out to do the work was great. Leslie was very friendly and professional to deal with in setting up the appointment and answering any questions we had. I would highly recommend EcoSpect, Inc.

Adam, Leslie, and team came recommended by our realtor, and I definitely see why. They were prompt, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. Within two weeks of calling, we had a radon mitigation system installed, which has worked perfectly to reduce our radon levels from quite high almost to zero.

I could not be happier with the services I received from Ecospect. All my interactions with Leslie in the office were quick, efficient, informative, and friendly. Adam, who came to assess my basement and then install the radon mitigation was extremely knowledgeable and very willing to answer questions and thoroughly explain the process and the radon situation in my house. The mitigation was completely successful. Ecospect has been a pleasure to work with and I will be recommending them very highly to all who ask.

Adam is extremely knowledgeable and clear in the way he explains things. We especially appreciated that he was honest with what we needed and what we didn't need to do. The crew was friendly and courteous and finished an day earlier than expected. When the job was finished, it was clear that it was not going to completely solve the problem near the bulk head door. Adam agreed that they will come back and do more to solve that issue. We are very pleased.

Working with Ecospect was a great experience start to finish. They provided a quote on the spot during our radon installation consultation and the price stayed the same when the final invoice was due. The crew was on time and did the work exactly as they said they would. I'm very happy we worked with Ecospect.

Louisa S. on August 28, 2020 8:53:10am
Good morning, The heavy rain last night revealed a leaking foundation crack in our basement that had been hiding under the basement stairs- so we would be interested in help with repairing the foundation and waterproofing in the basement. Primary issue: There is a vertical crack in the foundation of our east basement wall, directly under the side door and basement stairs. The width of the crack varies from hairline to a few mm. The height appears to be the full vertical span of the cement portion of the foundation, ~4 feet tall. The basement is a cement floor and 4 feet of cement walls then wood construction above ground. Secondary, not sure if issue: The southwest corner of the basement also lets in a little water when it rains but there are no visible cracks to my admittedly non expert eye. This is the corner where the sump pump is located. The sump well in the corner hasn't filled enough to trigger the sump pump since we redirected our gutter drainage away from this corner (it's the lowest part of the lot). Happy to send photos if it helps! Best wishes, Louisa

We just moved into a recently purchased home and would like to have our sump pump/system inspected and maintenance performed. We are unsure of how old the current system is and would like to ensure it is operating properly.

Good evening-I am looking to get a radon mitigation system installed as well as sealing any cracks in the foundation that may be of concern. This came as a result of a newly purchased home where the radon level came back higher than normal. Thank you.
