About Us

In the Beginning

The Company was established in 1980 as Larry’s Masonry Inc. Dale and Larry were partners for the first year. Larry left and the companies' name was changed in 1981 to Basement Specialists Inc. That means we have been serving the community for over 44 years. We will never be the largest, but we are, and will, remain the best.

We Service the Milwaukee Metropolitan Area and understand the construction methods, as well as the soil and water conditions, that affect foundations in our area.

During the summer our work force is as many as 12 men in the field plus office staff. We have 2 very experienced foremen who range from 24 to 27 years with the company.

Dale not only knows how to repair basements but also built new basements working as a mason. This gives him additional knowledge and understanding of how to solve those difficult problems.

Dale has experience in the court room as well. He has been called in as an expert witness in numerous court proceedings.

Dale does most of his own estimates

- We have the State of Wisconsin “Dwelling Contractors Qualifier Certification”
- Completed WAFRP Certified Training for Wall Reinforcement Systems

No Pressure

We do not believe in high pressure sales and want our customers to fully understand the job being sold. Rarely is a contract signed at the first meeting. It is important that you check with your local building inspector for a list of contractors who have done work in your area. If possible, ask the contractor for a list of recent jobs completed that required similar work to what needs to be done on your home. Make sure they have been in business as long as their ads suggest!
