for help with moisture issues in home crawlspace, foundation slippage and yard drainage.
) came out promptly, listened to the problems, surveyed the situation and recommended ...more a plan of action. He explained everything he would do in detail and followed up with a written proposal. We agreed on the price and he scheduled the week and a half needed to complete the job. He and his men arrived each day on time. They did everything as agreed and a few extras. They cleaned up each day and hauled off all debris at the completion of the work;. All work was completed on schedule.
was knowledgeable about water issues and I am very pleased with his work. While I won't know for sure until the heavy fall/winter rains come whether or not my drainage issues (in the yard) have been solved,
assured me he will come back if needed..

"for a 2nd opinion I called
the owner came out on time for my appointment, before he got there his office called the day before and several hours before to confirm and let me know he was on the way, he ...more was right on time.
was very professional and toured my basement and walked around my house and inspected everything.
told me that the issue was with my gutter size and downspouts, I have old 4" gutters and need 6" gutters and also my gutters where not "crowned" in the middle and not draining all the water during heavy rains, there was evidence of overflowing, it was
's professional judgment that new properly sized and installed gutters would solve my problem, and that there was not a need for a basement waterproofing contractor or a sump-pump system at all.
I was impressed with
's knowledge and professionalism, I could tell he knew his craft. He said there was no reason to sell me something that I did not need. I would definitely use
if I ever do have a need for their service! I trust them! "

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.

Nashville Waterproofing Contractors Reviews
"Fantastic. From the first phone call to the end of the job, these guys are great. I will say the only negative was originally when I called them, I placed a call to
to estimate the job and didn't hear back. I called a second time and from that point on it was smooth sailing. They are so good that I recommended them to ...more my boss and I am having them come back to look at some other remodeling projects we have.
was great! My wife and I were not really too worried about drainage in our house, although we had one corner of the garage which we were about concerned about. This inspection was mostly just preventive.
was very helpful in that regard, pointing out several little things we could do ourselves to address ...more the issue. That's what I appreciated most --
wasn't looking to give himself business, rather to give me some honest, straightforward advice. He seems like a great guy and I would be happy to use him again if I needed major work. "
"I just bought an older house so thought I'd purchase the Angie's List Deal for a waterproofing and drainage assessment.
came out to give us a walk through and look at everything. He arrived and immediately handed me a nice portfolio with all of his license, insurance and pertinent info about the company. I thought this ...more was impressive. We did a walk around of the whole house and he gave me some pointers on things to fix or update and ways to weatherproof our basement area. I also asked about repairing a downspout drainage issue and an estimate to fix a retaining wall that has started to separate. Within a few days, I had an itemized estimate on the things he could do and some options so we could organize our budget and try to tackle these one by one.
In the meantime, we had some leaking in the basement we couldn't figure out and then later we found during heavy rains we were having some pooling under our carport near the foundation.
came out each time with ideas and advice for fixing the problems, never charging us a cent. We still have to figure out some solutions and our budget but at least we know more than we did and as soon as we can afford the repairs, I will be calling Absolute to do the work. I have no doubt they will do a top notch job!
are wonderful people who value relationships, they will always have people like me who will highly recommend them from the rooftops whenever I can!
"I have lived in my house since 1987. For 18 years, I put up with water getting into my basement whenever it rained for an extended period (3 days or more), or if Nashville got a lot all at once, like 3 inches in 24 hours. The water would never get more than 1/2 inch deep, and I would vacuum it up with a wet-vac. Finally I got tired of all the effort ...more and the moldy smell that would
for a few days until it dried out and the dehumidifier got the humidity down. I checked with several friends, and the name
kept getting mentioned. I finally called
. A fellow came out and looked over the basement, then the outside drainage possibilities. He prepared a quote on the spot - they guarrantee their price, too. My house has a walk-in basement with a sloping front lawn. We are near the bottom of a small hill, with bedrock maybe 3 feet below the soil, at least near my house. The original French drain was clogged or somewhat crushed sometime in the distant past. The house dates from the mid-50s. Because of the way the soil slopes more on one side, and with the driveway coming down the side and then curving around to the back, I cannot get a gravity feed, so two sump pumps were installed as described above in the Services Performed section. A crew of three or four guys showed up on the appointed day and began working. I had previously prepared the basement so that access was available to the cinderblock along the front and two sides of the basement walls. They took about two days to do the work of jackhammering the floor, digging the holes for the sump pumps, laying the gravel and perforated pipe, installing the drip-catchers on the bottom row of blocks, and putting a nice smooth and flat
of cement on top of it all. The system has been in place for about 5 years now, and it has worked perfectly. Even this weekend (May 1-2, 2010), where we had the greatest rainfall ever recorded in Nashville, I had no water in my basement."
"They waterproofed my basement and my crawlspace. They sealed off my crawlspace completely and they came back each year to check up on the work. When they came out they were able to beat or match other estimates I had already received. They went under the house for at least an hour and took pictures of the crawlspace, which I had never seen. He showed ...more me my water line which was very high!!! I had mold, standing water, and all types of problems. These guys came out and did a great job, and definitely helped me save money."
"I was so impressed with this company. They did great work for me. My basement is large so this was a big job for them. They handled it really well though and this product they use is the best one out there. I can't say enough good things about them. They are just one of those really great companies that deserve all high
"Work was done professionally, quickly, and with little mess. Frontier cleaned out the basement and tested the system. They came back to check on it and called several times to see if we were satisfied. Overall a great experience. We are very happy with this service. We should have done it years ago."
