"He was upfront and honest with his assessment. We had a corner of our house that had a water problem, and took me outside to identify the source. He identified a" spot were water was creeping in under our patio. Instead of "selling" me his service to waterproof or support walls, he gave me advice. He explained how he runs his company, and I would feel extremely confident in his services. Anyone needing basement repair should call this company. Do not fall for sales tactics used by other companies.

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 Columbus

The installation and quality of work done on the basement was amazing. As I said, the previous owners had used
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the work they did on the house before and for us as owners was great. They showed up on time, had all the equipment they could possibly need. They explained the process and were very courteous. They also made sure to clean up the basement when finished. Included was a work permit submission and an inspection by the city, which I imagine a lot of people bypass.
The estimation and pricing portion of the work was very disappointing to me. When evaluating what the previous owners had done for reinforcement to the basement walls we had to also determine which work
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
had completed so as to determine what was covered by the
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
warranty. We had them come out and look at the work.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
verified what work was done by his company very quickly. then tried to get out fast. We asked him if he could give us an idea of what it would cost to "do it right" and he just threw out some numbers. We asked if he could put it in writing and he said "sure you can just write it on the back of my card" and left. I called
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
a week later to verify this number and talked to
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he confirmed that was a correct estimate ($500/beam). That comes to $4000 which was higher still than other estimates. I told him the other companies price and he said if I went with them he would void the warranty on previous work. So we were kind of stuck. He said he is "middle of the road" on price which was $500 a
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He said cost can be anywhere from $200 - 800/beam. We asked him to come give a official estimate. He came out and after assessing he wrote down $5000 on the invoice and asked for up front payment. I didn't question it because I didn't do the math. Afterwords I called and asked about the discrepancy between the original estimate ($500/beam) and the total $5000 ($625) and he said the price "is what it is" and became very combative. He was very angry. I tried to talk to him about it but he would not discuss it.
To me the estimating portion lacked integrity. In addition, I feel like when I tried to calmly address the discrepancy there wasn't a good answer. It felt a little like bullying since going with anyone else would have voided the warranty, but that is speculation since I don't know the intent.

Hydra was great! They explained the entire process and made sure I didn't have any questions. They cleaned up each day and move a bunch of our stuff out of the way. They covered everything in plastic to minimize the cleanup.
The system was battle tested this weekend when we had a 20 year rain (over 3 inches) in 4 hours. The system performed perfectly and did have any problem handling the excessive rain. My neighbors were not so lucky. I gave them Hydra's contact information.

We met with 3 different companies, and Hydra was by far the least expensive. The team came out and got the job done in 2 days; they came back for a third day to quickly re-hookup the washing machine and sink. Pat runs his business unlike the others we met with; he took about 2 days to come up with an estimate, which showed us how much care he takes for his customers.

Pat from
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable and courteous. He took the time to explain the causes of our
basement issues. Pat then recommended solutions without any sales pressure. We had a basement waterproofing system
installed along with I-beams on a bowed wall. The beams were installed using Hydra’s patented system that will allow the basement ceiling to be finished. The Hydra crew arrived on time and were very professional. They answered any questions we had and did a great job cleaning up. The waterproofing system works great and cured our basement water problems completely. We highly recommend Hydra for basement repairs.

Pat
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a pro from the get-go. He provided attentive, prompt service and articulately responded to our inquiry about a competitor's quote. We even set an earlier deadline because of my wife's pregnancy and he was able to meet it, as promised.
The work was done on time and punctually. Everything appears to be installed exactly as described -- we'll see what happens during the next really bad storm. I am very happy to know leaking in my basement should no longer be a problem EVER again for the life of this house.
Only quibbles: We weren't prepared for the one-month delay in returning furniture to our basement (it takes that long for the cement to dry). Also, we probably would have done a better job removing ALL items from the basement if we knew how dusty it would be (there's dust even in other parts of the house, which is probably unavoidable given the small size of our house and the magintide of the job).
These are small issues that wouldn't have mattered much at it all if we'd been properly warned. Overall, Pat
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a very trustworthy and will do right by you and your home.

No show after no show. What was to be a 3 day process has gone on for a month with my house torn up and no end in sight.
Spoke with the President,

Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was recommended to us by a neighbor and we asked him to provide one of our estimates to fix a problem with water in our basement. In
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's opinion, our problem stemmed from an issue on the exterior of our house and costly repairs were not necessary inside. He examined the root of our issue inside and out and advised us to fix the exterior problem first. Without knowing that we had received a quote from another company,
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said that other companies were going to want to jackhammer the floors in our basement and put drains around the entire perimeter, even though we only have the water problem in one area. He was exactly right. The previous company told us that they would patch the outside problem, but, the complete drain system would need to be installed.
Columbus Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was concise and to the point, gave advice on how to fix our problem, and did not try to sell us solutions that we did not need. I very much appreciate his candor and professionalism. If we have any future basement needs

will certainly be phone call number one.
