"It went very well and took about 3 days to complete the work. The owner of the company and his men were very courteous, friendly and very professional. They did" a great job and I would recommend them to any of my friends and neighbors.

-linda W.

"I had a basement that accumulated a lot of seepage, making the concrete floor moist most of the time.
came out very quickly after I called," and pointed out all the things that the last company who worked on my basement tried to fix. He told me very clearly about how the ground water was getting in, and what would permanently stop it. Their team returned in about 3 weeks and did the construction in about 5 hours. From beginning to end it couldn't have gone smoother. As a customer, I understood exactly what they were doing, and even had a better understanding of how the water was getting into my basement in the first place. Both the leader and the team were courteous, informative, fast, clean and professional. They cleaned up after themselves, and left me with a beautiful basement that doesn't leak! They have a 100% guarantee that if there's any seepage water in that basement at any time, they'll return and fix it free of charge. Highly recommend!

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.

Very well! Chip

was extremely helpful and very professional! After coming out to give an estimate he made a follow up appointment to meet me at the house once I was in town in order to talk to me about further detail!

) came out promptly, listened to the problems, surveyed the situation and recommended 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.

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 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 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 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!

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 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
Nashville Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept getting mentioned. I finally called
Nashville Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. 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
Nashville Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
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.
