"The gentleman who came out to review the situation was professional, knowledgeable and timely. He provided the estimate and explained what would occur. The team" that came to do the work were friendly and professional. They took care to keep the areas traveled in the house protected and work area was also kept restricted from the rest of the basement. They finished the job in a timely manor and left the area as neat as when they arrived. Unfortunately, a minor leak occurred in one of the areas repaired and I had to call them back. True to their word they came back within a couple of days, repaired the minor issue and as promised no additional charges were made. As this was my first experience with a basement leak I appreciated not only the professional and timely manor but the honest way in which they dealt with me. I would use them again and recommend them.

"We had an extended power outage and the sump pump basin came close to filling but the battery backup pump did not kick in so we purchased a package for a sump pump" and battery backup checkup ($49 on Angie's List site). When they arrived and assessed the current equipment they found that the equipment was past its prime and recommended replacing both primary and secondary sump pumps - which we did. We were happy with the work and felt the price for replacing both pumps was very reasonable.

Basement Waterproofing

It’s easy to do, but forgetting your crawl space can have plenty of negative consequences for the rest of your home from poor air quality to high energy bills.

Angie's Answers

Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?

 

It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 

 

Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.

Basement Waterproofing reviews in Cincinnati

After shopping around, we chose Basement Doctor. On the first visit, they checked out our crawl space and gave an estimate which we accepted. On the next visit, they sealed the crawl space. We are very pleased with the work. The crawl space is dry and the house is free of the musky odor that used to occur after precipitation.

Ever Dry Waterproofing came highly recommended to us by a friend who’d hired them the previous summer to waterproof her basement. They proved to be everything she’d said: they were reliable, trustworthy, and professional at all times. We had the
complete indoor and outdoor waterproofing system installed, and the job was implemented exactly as discussed. The men worked four consecutive days, not working on or starting another job until ours was finished. We felt that our job had their complete attention and focus. Their work met, if not surpassed our expectations, and we would not hesitate even a second to recommend Ever Dry to anyone who needs basement waterproofing. I would like to add that I was surprised AND delighted at how VERY little damage was done to my plants surrounding the perimeter of my house; only a minimal amount of ground cover was lost. More importantly, we have not had a single drop of water in our basement since the waterproofing system was installed, and we have had some fairly substantial rains during those ten months. What a relief! It's one of the BEST things we ever did to our house, and my only regret is that we didn't have Ever Dry do this years sooner.

Everydry did an excellent job with our waterproofing. Waterproofing is pricey, but it was worth every penny. Our basment was leaking before the waterproofing. We had it waterproofed 12 years ago and not one drop of water inside since. We recently moved out of the house and are now using it as a rental property and it gives us peace of mind that the basement isn't going to leak. We love that their is a lifetime waranty.

was very professional and knowledgeable. He closely examined our problem and determined that the leak was actually coming from a pump attached to our newly-installed (2 mos. ago) furnace rather than from the foundation and suggested we contact the company from whom we purchased it. He also indicated that, while there is some evidence of moisture being in some of the cement blocks in the wall of our foundation in this area that may require waterproofing in the future, the problem isn't to the point that it i necessary immediately. This was appreciated, especially after we just put out $10,000 for the new furnace and air conditioning unit!
We will definitely call them down the line when we are in the

It did not go well at all. They didn't show up numerous times. They did not honor their guarantee. The wall still leaks, and they kept our money! The guarantee was worthless!!!

I am incredibly pleased with the service I received. He explained everything they did and why they needed to do it. I had purchased the deal on Angie's List for an inspection, but couldn't get around to actually taking care of calling them to come check it out for over a year. They still honored the inspection with no problem. Since I didn't know much at all about the basement and how the crack in the wall happened, etc, it was wonderful to get it explained to me. It was better still that they didn't 'talk down' to me as some places tend to because I am a woman.

The works were very professional and respectful of our property. Even though they had to dig outside around our house, I was amazed at how they preserved all our plants and shrubs.

hammer the floor to put pipes in. Its been a few years now and we have been mold free ever since. They told us to eliminate the source and we would eliminate the mold, and that they did. They put in a fantastic sump pump with battery backup, but it hardly ever runs because the water is caught outside in the drainage pipes they laid around the house about 4 feet down. They have a double system for stopping the water. The inside drainage pipes are a secondary backup that leads to the sump pump. I have 100 percent confidence in
