Basement Waterproofing reviews in Milwaukee


The answer to my question was fairly straightforward: there are no structural concerns, and therefore no need for a repair by a professional. Even so,
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
took the time to point out a number of improvements that should be made to the landscaping. These were not improvements he was trying to "sell," and he encouraged me to do the work myself or find a fixit professional who could do it. He spent plenty of time going through the options, but did not charge anything for the information. He also provided me with a printed handout for how to do the work correctly. He offered some specific recommendations about dehumidifier units -- again not trying to sell me anything. I appreciated his professional advice. He also noted some safety improvements that could be made in the basement (electrical box should be protected to reduce corrosion from the foundation wall). We would definitely call them to do any work that might be necessary in the future.

came to address a water issue we were having in one corner of our basement. While he was running a little late (10-15 minutes) the evaluation was free and the advice he gave us has the potential to save us over thousands of dollars so in the grand scheme of things, I wasn't too put out. He examined the outside of the house first and addressed concerns with our current sump pump discharge route and the downspout on the corner in question. When we went inside he examined the area of concern and also inspected the rest of the basement to see if there were other issues we should be aware of. He was able to give me a comprehensive explanation of the way our house was originally built as well as modifications that have been made since then to help with water issues in the basement. He recommended no repairs at this time and gave explicit directions on steps to take to address the issues on our own. He also referred us to a plumber to help with the sump pump discharge issue if we didn't feel comfortable attempting the repairs ourselves.

also provided us with a rough estimate for the cost of the DIY work he proposed if we preferred to have them do it instead. He was friendly, polite, thorough, and didn't mind my son interrupting the meeting when he woke up from his nap. I am hopeful that we'll be able to fix this on our own, but if not I will definitely contact Accurate for this repair or any future repairs.

We have had water in the basement for several years. Not a lot, but enough to be annoying. It always originated in the same spots, then drained toward an interior drain in the front of our basement.
I saw a basement contractor at a home show and asked for an assessment and quote. This person accurately described why the water was coming up in the basement (poor interior drainage system, resulting in water during heavy rains when the water table below the house

). This contractor, however, proposed the installation of a new drainage system around the entire perimeter of our basement, along with some exterior drainage, with a quote exceeding $30,000 (lowered significantly later in an effort to
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
our business). They also offered a lifetime guarantee against further water (provided we continued to pay $50 per year).
At a friend's suggestion, I contacted
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and met a couple of times with
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Zidar. He also accurately assessed our basement problems, but suggested that a full perimeter system was not necessary. His thought -- address the problem areas, and if more was needed in the future, then do additional work at that time.
We accepted his bid and had the work done. His men were professional and courteous. Importantly, they also cleaned the basement very well of dust and debris. My only nit would be that the concrete covering the trenches may not be as smooth as I would like. But, it's a 100+ year old basement.
.Since the work was completed, our basement has been completely dry. Very pleased with the results.

I had problems with water seeping through the foundation block at one corner of my home. Since re-grading did not resolve the issue, I asked
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to come out to assess the situation. He recommended a drain tile test as the first step. The test was done 8/1/13 and found the system to be operational. Excavation and sealing were the next step. The work was completed on 9/18/13 and I've had a dry basement ever since. What a relief! A big THANK YOU to
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew!

Contacted in summer and worked out contract. Said would match competitor price but couldn't. I called them back and asked about Angie discount which hadn't been taken into consideration and asked them about Senior Discount that was listed on their web sight. They reworked and came to competitor price, but 2 feet short. Did work and basement is a mess while working, cleaned up pretty good. Will be coming to look at area where water puddled from recent rain.

came to our house promptly and did a thorough review of our foundation and drainage system. He determined the water was not due to a foundation issue rather due to a missing downspout. In addition, the inspector raised issues regarding a plumber valve of which

' experience provided insight and closure to a non-issue. His report was pivotal to the sale of our home. The buyer was comfortable with his findings and professional opinion.

was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable.

Before the visit from their salesman, someone from the office called to set up a time, and insisted that both myself and my wife were present. Their salesman came to the house and gave us the hard sell on a very expensive partial excavation. He cooked up some lame story about having an spot in their schedule open up, but we had to sign that night to get the "special discount."

! I did not appreciate his pushiness, nor the non-stop phone calls I received. Eventually I answered and told them to stop calling. However, I'm doing this review today because, more than two years year later, I just got another call from them!
We ended up using another provider for an inside-only drain tile and sump install, and our basement has been bone dry since.
Be very wary of

. I have a co-worker who fell for the same hard sell and regretted it.

We determined that no repairs were necessary that would resolve my minor problems w/o major rework that wasn't financially feasible given the age and value of the property. Very honest assessment, and I appreciate it when a business won't just do things because you think you need them if you really do not.
- Stanley C.

Very friendly. Made recommendations to condo association who then completed the work. Appears to have solved the problem.

Accurate was professional and efficent from start to finish.
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to my Mom's home to give us our
estimate. Since our basement was a finished basement with paneling and other decorations, on
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's initial visit, he gave us good information on how to improve drainage around our house. However, he gave us instructions to prep the basement for a second inspection, so he could properly assess the condition of the walls behind the paneling, and thus work that needed to be done. As it turned out, we discovered more cracks and bowing of the walls behind the paneling, so we were glad we were not going to get unexpected costs after we signed the contract. After
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's second inspection we promptly received his detailed estimate of work.
Our plan was to get estimates from 3 high quality contractors, and pick the best one. One dropped themselves out of the process.
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the other contractor gave us estimates that we felt were very close in scope of work and price. However, the reasons we chose Accurate were quality reputation, word of mouth experience from a friend and also from a neighbor, time needed to complete the job, and warranty of the work. We took our time to make our decision (5 days) but once we had all the information we felt very comfortable with Accurate.
The drain tile test was performed professionally, however we discovered unexpected issues.
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
had been very clear that this could happen, so we added the drain tile replacement to the scope of the work. My recommendation is to ensure that the timing of the drain tile test & basement work be well enough apart so that any additional prep work can be completed before the Accurate crew starts the job. We were able to do the prep work very quickly, but it was a rush job!!
The crew arrived promptly & ready to work.

and Junior
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
the crew, and kept us informed of work to be done and progress. All the men working had Accurate T-shirts on, so we knew the guys belonged in our house! The guys were never loafing around - they were constantly moving & constantly doing the next tasks in the process. They even worked through lunch & dinner, sneaking in meals & hydration. The crew covered in plastic the items we had moved to the middle of the basement in our prep work. That covering protected the items & minimized the dust that needed to be cleaned up after the work. The crew members were also very informative & friendly - towards the end of the day we all had to resist chatting with each other so they stayed on task!! My Mom was very impressed with the work ethic of the entire crew, and their professional demeanor.. They worked until dark on the first day, and promptly arrived on the second day to complete all the work. There were a few follow ups like the city inspection & concrete pour during the following week, but Junior let us know the schedule so we had no issues. Also, they took care of a few tasks to make sure the basement and yard was in good order after the work was complete.
Excavation and drain tile replacement will be create alot of noise & follow

's suggestions. My Mom left to her
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
' house a few hours to get away from the noise. I stayed because it did not bother me. But follow
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's suggestions!!
Also, the office staff and
Milwaukee Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
were very responsive throughout the entire process. The bill was true to the quotes and contract, without any surprises.
Overall my Mom & I can recommend Accurate without hesitation.
