"They were exceptional. They came on time, brought a full crew as promised and finished the job in one day. They covered floors and our piled up things stored in" the basement and cleaned up as though it were their own home. Nice workers, great job. Would not hesitate to recommend or use again.

"My impression started when
(owner) came to quote the job. He's very professional and personable and takes quality very seriously." I knew right away I could trust him to do the job right. A few days later a crew of 8 (very nice) guys came and did all the work in about 6 hours. Considering the nature of the job, I expected a complete mess. They had to drill and remove the basement floor along the back wall, cover the area in rock and then seal with cement. That's a lot of going up and down stairs - in and out of the house! They were extremely conscientious of my home and cleaned up everything. They did a great job and explained everything I asked. Afterwards,
called to make sure everything met my expectations. If you want quality and a company with professionalism and experience, I would definitely recommend
. Remember: you get what you pay for! Thanks
and Guys!!!

6 questions to ask a basement waterproofing contractor

If you need basement waterproofing work, make sure you ask your basement waterproofing contractor these key questions about licensing and experience.

What to expect with basement waterproofing

Waterproofing a basement can be a costly, but necessary, investment. We asked highly rated basement waterproofing companies to provide their best advice.

The damage done by neglecting a crawl space is likely affecting you more than the eye can see, says Vallone. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Nancy T. of Seattle)
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.

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.

Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a great job and was a pleasure to work with.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
met with us several times to explain the causes of our basement leakage issues in our 1920’s house and answered our many questions.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
wasn’t the least expensive of the alternatives, but we felt then, and now, that they provide the best value. Their large team came in all at once and performed the substantial job in just two days, as proposed. We had one issue (a re-routed drain pipe from the furnace leaked) and a team member returned the day I contacted them and fixed the problem. Once we re-paint the walls and floor, other than the added sump pump, the waterproofing system will basically be invisible. We now have the peace of mind of a permanent solution and a transferable lifetime guarantee to benefit resale.

Work was fabulous, workers are professional and were good guys. My issues came with the sales staff...I was "pressured" into making a pretty quick decision about a very expensive project and I felt a little "scared" into a mold concern, that in hindsight was probably not that important. We were quoted for 3 walls, which included one wall that was shared with the house. When the work was just about done, I came down and asked about the 3rd wall and the labor supervisor said there was no reason to do that one, but I showed him the quote and he tried to make a call to get my refunded for that portion. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful and the supervisor had to get all of the equipment back out and do the last wall for essentially no purpose. I could tell him and his team were a bit discouraged, as was I, as it was an ineffective use of their time and my money. I will never use Everydry again, not because of their labor, but because of their sales and customer support staff.

The inspection went well.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very personable and answered all questions I had. We talked through a better draining system, a new basement window, and carbon fiber wall straps. He gave me quotes for everything, and I subsequently scheduled an appointment to get a new window installed. That appointment has been changed twice by

's office, so the work has not yet been performed. However, the original inspection and all communications with the office have been very good, and I was in no real hurry to have the work completed.

The installation was completed in 3 days with no issues. A year later, the drain tile blocked in a section of the basement due to incorrectly drilled drainage holes and water penetrated the basement floor every time rain occurred. This issue took 5 months to resolve after multiple phone calls and discussions with managers and supervisors. For this reason, I will not recommend this company. Service following the initial installation was terrible. The company was rude and unresponsive, making the "lifetime warranty" not worth the hassle.

I was very impressed with this company’s performance from start to finish. They accomplished the jackhammering of the entire basement perimeter in four hours. On the second day they installed the pipes, sump pump, and electrical outlet; connected the pump to the downspout; and laid the new concrete in about four and half hours. Although I was expecting to have to do a lot of cleaning, I found no dust on my belongings, which had been well protected with plastic. They even made a plastic wall to protect the kitchen while they made trips from the side door to the basement.
The following week, they returned to reinstall closet shelves that they had removed. And when the spigots connected to my washing machine began to leak due to the machine being moved for the demolition (probably because of their age), they replaced the spigots, even going the extra mile when the new ones they had brought to install were found to be defective--they took them back to the store and returned to finish the job that day so I could do laundry. My basement is now dry, warmer, and usable and no longer a place I avoid, thanks to

I thought I needed my 100 year old basement waterproofed.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and told me that I didn't need any work done. He said it was in good shape and suggested things I can do to improve the appearance of my stone walls and things I should do outside to ensure that I don't have water issues in the future. He was extremely nice, and I appreciate him not doing work that didn't need done just to make $$. I will definitely keep his business card in case I need something in the future!!

We had arranged to have
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
come to our home to do a free inspection. A day before their appointment they called to reconfirm. I had to answer multiple questions, one of which was to confirm if my spouse would be there also. I informed them I was the decision maker and had buying authority.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
refused to get off the issue and insisted that we both be at the house for the inspection. When I told her that would not happen she finally moved on and asked a few more questions. The day of the appointment they were a no show and when I called they said I did not have an appointment. The Customer Service is rude and attempts to perform a hard sell. These tactics are not appreciated and I will have another company perform these services.
Companies like this are there for one reason, to take your money.....
