"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
to come out to assess the situation. He recommended a drain tile test as the first step. ...more 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
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 ...more 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."

Water, a basement’s archenemy, does more than cause a foul odor in basements, but can cause serious damage to walls, windows and floors, as well as your health.

"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.

! 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.

"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.
"Accurate was professional and efficent from start to finish.
came to my Mom's home to give us our
estimate. Since our basement was a finished basement with paneling and other decorations, on
's initial visit, he gave us good information on how to improve drainage around our house. ...more 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
'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.
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.
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.
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 & dust....so follow
's suggestions. My Mom left to her
' house a few hours to get away from the noise. I stayed because it did not bother me. But follow
Also, the office staff and
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.
"Called last week (10/2/13) they took my name and number and told me someone would get back to me shortly. This is the 3rd comapny not to call back after taking my name and number. Absolutely the most unreliable industry I’ve had to deal with.
"the workers showed up when promised . covered steps , carpet ,and furniture with plastic. Kept my house very clean ! The city building inspector said they did a very good job. We would hire this company again.
