My in-laws chose
to do a full perimeter system plus rough casting of two walls of the basement of their house. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my in-laws were unable to have the work done. I spoke with one of the owners of
about the fate of my in-law's deposit. Most companies would have said “Sorry
, we have a contract” and would have kept the money. The
executive that I spoke with was incredibly reasonable and understanding of the extenuating circumstances and my in-laws were very satisfied with the outcome. I give
very high
for their professionalism and their willingness to do what it takes to satisfy their customers.

My basement problem was...I had water seeping through my back/side walls and two small spouts of water when it rained really hard leaving puddles on my floor.
at
was the last of 5 waterproofing companies (all from Angie's List) I had come to my house to give me a estimate. Although
is on Angie's List, he came highly recommended from a friend who had just had work done in his basement. (now I see why!) So I came on
and contacted him.
was by far the most professional and thorough when explaining to me what I could have done. He gave me a few options according to my budget.
was never pushy and I never felt pressured or harassed to get the job done. A few days after
came to my house to give me an estimate, he dropped off a written proposal of what I wanted done. It was nicely written and explained in detail everything I would be having done in my basement. Along with the proposal was a list of references of people who had similar work done to their basement. Prior to starting the job I asked
if he could do a second walk through of my basement because I had a few questions and wanted to make sure everything was address before the work started.
never hesitated he was very willing to do a second walk through just to ease my mind. As far as the cost. I feel it was very reasonable compare to the other estimates and the amount of work I had done.
The job itself went very well from beginning to end with absolutely no bumps in the road. They came in and did exactly what they said they would do. Not only did
and his workers do a excellent job they also did a few small jobs they were not expected to do at no additional cost.
and his guys showed up at my house every day on time as promised and went straight to work. They were always very respectful with me and my home. With doing a basement water proofing job I expected a big mess in my home. This was not the case. Everything was contained to my basement and they kept it as clean as possible. At the end of each day
would give me a run down of the work that was completed that day and what to expect the next day. He also encouraged me to take pictures at the end of each day. So I took tons of pics. I'd be happy to share them, email me at rallmond05@gmail.com As for the out come. We have had a few torrential downpours since the job was completed back in June and I'm very happy to say my basement is bone dry and I love it! I never considered my damp, smelly and ugly basement a part of my home before. But now it's a different story, it looks great and I couldn't be more happy with the results. I know its just a basement but
and Co. did a outstanding job!!!

I scheduled an estimate for
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
21 at 3:30. My parents live with me so I was at work. My 82 year old father called me so upset about how rude this man was to him. He asked my father if he was the homeowner, he replied no and this unprofessional man proceeds to tell my father that he only deals with the homeowner. My father tells him it is only an estimate and he was my father. He proceeds to tell my father that if she knew she wasn't going to be here she should have rescheduled and how I wasted his time. I am so angry. I was never told this on the phone nor is it on the website. Regardless, his ignorance and rudeness was unacceptable! I will never use this company!

Situation: Incoming tenant suffered respiratory distress while painting below-grade kitchen subject to high humidity. Discloses that she is highly susceptible to mold (no recognized issues with owners or previous renters). Moreover, she has been threatened with eviction if she overstays her exit date in current apartment.
Based on Angie's List Review, paid $49 for inspection and credit. House listed on Angie's include weekend contact. Called Saturday, 6/28, but no return call. Called again Monday, 6/30. Given appointment early 7/3.

representative, a son of owner, viewed the area. We agreed that since there was no active water infiltration, perimeter drains and pumps were unnecessary. Rep recommended removing an existing mold, and parging (coating) the dry stone party wall in this row home where mortar has failed.
I thereupon signed a contract for $2,500 given the pressure from my tenant. Both tenant and I asked that he contact either of us ASAP on whether accelerated treatment was possible given the tenant's occupancy pressures.
Tenant called Monday,
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
7, but reports that she did not receive a callback. I called Tuesday,
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
8, and was told that the owner, out on a job, would call me when he returned. He did not.
Due to the occupancy pressures, I have purchased safety gear, chemicals for surface treatment, and a chemical fogger. I also have purchased 150 pounds of a specialty, quick setting mortar repair product to parge failing masonry. Finally, I have purchased a Guardian Air HVAC Cell for installation within the duct work. I suspect that this will provide equal, or even better results, than the scope of work outlined in the contract.
(DETAIL: When the HVAC system is in operation, the HVAC-
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Cell creates an Advanced Oxidation Process consisting of: hydro-peroxides, super-oxide ions and hydroxide ions. All are friendly oxidizers that
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
mold bacteria and viruses. These oxidizers revert to oxygen and hydrogen after oxidation of the pollutant.)
All this is out-of-pocket, as is the break from my scheduled annual vacation, since insurance will not over DIY expenditures or labor.
I am not sure what I got for my $49 -- certainly not any testing. What I did get was delay. One week on, I am preparing to do the job myself, one week rent is lost, one week of hassle for my tenant, all because the contractor did not have to courtesy to say that it either did not want the job, or could not meet my admittedly tight timetable.

Overall,
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team were wonderful to work with. They were all very respectful and nice. The team tried to leave as much as the wiring and the floor as possible, as not to demo everything. In the demolition process, however, some of the screws for the light fixtures went missing (not a terrible thing, but a small hassle). The whole process took about a week, and the drain and the walls were fixed. Our house doesn't smell moldy anymore which is a great plus! Two small things which bothered me slightly after the fact, was that the foreman,
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, said he would return a window insert for our basement window, which he hasn't done yet (it keeps air from entering the basement). Also, instead of unscrewing some piping around the dryer vent, it seems that they have just ripped it out (but that was an easy fix on our end...we just got a new aluminum pipe for the dryer). The team put plastic sheeting down to protect the furniture on the first floor where they had to come in and out of to get to the basement (we don't have basement access). They also did a cursory cleaning before they left each day, which I appreciated. It wasn't a deep clean, but that wasn't expected either.

offered, kindly, to help us find some contractors who could help replace the drywall/studs and retile our floor; however, his contacts were all busy and weren't able to help us. We ended up contacting some contractors through Angie's list to help us return our basement to its finished self. It has been about a week and half after the work was completed, and the system seems to be working (and we have had some crazy rain storms). Although there is a puddle of water that collects around the lid of the sump pump, which worries me slightly. I have called
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to ask him if that's normal, but otherwise the work was well done!

and his crew were on time, completed the job within a few hours. They cleaned up all of their materials and did an excellent job on the install of the sump, trench, and speed drain. I have not had any water in the month since. I would absolutely use them in the future.

' knowledge and experience in his field shone through. I recieved several estimates and was most impressed with

's plan for my basement as well as their very fair price. The crew worked efficiently, and in a timely matter. I was shocked at how clean and neat they were throughout the entire job. I couldn't be happier with the end result. I would use this company again as well as refer them to my family and friends.

The workers were EXTREMELY detail oriented, and my
Philadelphia Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
has never looked better! Clean, well-organized, considerate, and respectful. They were prompt, and went above the call of duty in several areas where they really didn't need to. This was a VERY expensive undertaking and feel like we got our money's worth.

Lower level of Apt had water accumulating inside after moderate to heavy rainfall. Water amounts steadily increased, so we contacted BasementsLoveUs for a free estimate. They sent out a knowledgeable technician who recommended a French drain system to be installed. There workers came prepared each day, laid out dropcloths to protect the floors, and worked diligently to complete this extensive job in a reasonable amount of time. Though this job took longer than originally planned, they didn't charge anything additional, and returned the next day to complete. We are satisfied with the work and would utilize there services again.

The provider was not able to tell us where the leak was coming from. The only time we would have the leaking into our basement, is when it is raining. Of course it was a good day. My husband felt that was 49.00 down the drain and he did not suggest that he would come back out when it did rain.
