Basement Waterproofing Reviews in Columbus


After calling around for estimates, I hired
. The price was much lower than the competition. The crew arrived on time and immediately got to work. They put in 6 braces, cutting into the concrete floor so the braces were stable and anchoring them at the top with super heavy-duty bolts. The work passed inspection with flying colors. Everyone was personable & professional, but focused on completing the job. Perfect job, very satisfied, no complaints or problems. Would definitely use
again & recommend them to others.

We were impressed with the prompt arrival each day. The work was completed as promised. We had a breathe right system installed and as promised the basement no longer smells musty. The foreman was excellent...communicated well and kept the job on track. We had a slight issue with wires being cut on our landscape lights. These were repaired by a different company and we were reimbursed by Ever Dry. We did have Ever Dry come back and do additional cosmetic work on some of the walls. There is no question
hammering up concrete floors and resulting mud is dirty, but the crew did the best they could to keep other parts of the house clean. They also cleaned up afterward as well as possible.

Basement Waterproofing reviews in Columbus


I wanted to take a moment to thank the owner,
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He came out to assess the moldy situation in the basement and took the time to offer some recommendations for how I could treat the mold and do some work outdoors with the grading, gutters, etc. He was NOT a salesman, and he didn't try to sell me on a waterproofing system I really don't need at this time (as long as the basement stays unfinished). He thought I could try the other suggestions first (which will involve hiring outdoor contractors) and then maybe think about waterproofing later. Definitely different than the Basement Authority who wanted to sell me a new waterproofing system, a $2000 dehumidifier, and expensive down spouting work.
This is an honest company, and, as a relatively inexperienced homeowner (and maybe easy target for the many salesmen-contractors out there), I really appreciate someone who genuinely wants to help and doesn't try to sell you things you don't need. Thanks again!

We purchased an older house in April which had been updated for resale. Our inspection of the home occurred in April prior to the spring rains. After our closing the spring rains started and we noticed water entering at the corners of the foundation and

smelled musty. I contacted

to inspect

for the source of the musty smell. I determined that the water entering at the corners was due to the downspouts being assembled incorrectly and was able to fix that problem myself but

continued to have a musty smell.

Reed did the initial inspection and found several problem areas in the crawl space that needed addressed including a gap in the foundation footer and a sump pump that was placed in a dirt pit with a dirt trench running to it. The crew (

Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and ? name escapes me) showed up at 8:00 am on the scheduled date and completed all work by 4:00 pm. They removed the existing plastic sheathing that was laid in the crawl space as well as the existing insulation which had mold growing on it. They trenched around the perimeter of footer and installed a perimeter drain to a new sump pump well. The crawl space was sprayed with disinfectant after removing all the insulation. The entire crawl space was covered with several layers of plastic liner and sealed off. The area between the joists along the outer perimeter of the foundation was also insulated with spray foam insulation. The area went from being a really dark, dank, scarey place to a bright well sealed area that can be used for storage.

and the crew were very professional, arrived on time and got the work done in a timely manner.

Our basement had started leaking several years ago and it had become worse over the last two years. We had bids from several contractors and Hydra was the lowest as well as highly rated on Angie's List.
The contractor was professional and knowledgable. We elected to wait several months before starting and it was not a problem for Hydra. They are very accomodating.
The workers were very helpful and ready to assist with any large items that needed to be moved out opf their way. The work took 4 days. They installed plastic over everything before starting and used a large commercial air filter to keep the dust to a minimum. There is no way to keep dust from being generated with concrete removal but Hydra did all they could to minimize it. Two days after they had completed the job we had heavy rain, and received over 2" of rain in a 48 hour period. There was not a sign of water in the basement then and we continue to be water free. I would recommend Hydra and use them again.

J&J came out at the last minute at the request of my real estate agent to put up five steel beams that were required by my mortgage company due to some cracking and bowing of a basement wall. The listing agent's crew fell through and J&J came out at the request of my real estate agent to do a rush job. While they were putting up the beams,
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
explained everything they were doing so I would know for future reference. He was patient and answered all my questions completely. The crew left my basement in better condition than how they found it. They did a professional job and cleaned up after themselves.


Pat and his team of

Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
are true professionals. They are everything you would wish for in an angieslist provider. Could be the best experience to date on angieslist for us. Pat is very thorough and detailed. His concern for your home is just like he would have for his own property. He made several visits before and after the install of the beams.
We had 3 estimates for the work, and Pat was not the lowest. He was by far the most interested in doing the work and developing the best solution for us. Pat followed up and let us know he wanted the job.

, and

saved us time and money by developing a solution in very tight quarters.

was able to develop a solution that resulted in us NOT having to move the furnace--this was huge !! We did not have to hire a plumber to move the gas line for the furnace--another huge benefit--they just figured it out.

cut out a metal cabinet that was in the way of one of the beams to be installed.(I was supposed to do it).
They cleaned the place spotless when they finished the job.

was on his hands and knees wiping the floor clean when the job was done !!! --(Tell me where you would ever find this kind of work ethic???)
I really think they are one of the best providers we have ever used on AngiesList. (Integrity, trust, and work ethic).

It was very pleasant dealing with

, from
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
coming out looking things over and giving the quote, to the worker's installing everything. Everyone showed up on time, a crew of at least 10, they immediately started digging all the trenches. 4 hours later everything was done, including replacing the turf and tamping everything down so that you barely notice they were here

from Basement Doctors came out to my house for a free consultation today. He was extremely helpful and friendly and I was very impressed with his honesty. He gave a lot of advice for how to stop water leaking from the inside as opposed to wasting thousands of dollars on drying out a basement that is over 100 years old. I would definitely recommend their services!
- Elizabeth A.

It was great, he suggested that we try putting on larger gutters before completing the more expensive basement work. He was right that was all we needed. That is professionalism at it's best!
