"Last summer,
fixed my crawl space so it's dry and so the floors on the first floor of my house stay at the right moisture level. I was" trying to get things right before installing new flooring. They did an excellent job and have been helpful to me, following up to be sure things are still ok. They made sure I knew that this was not just a one-time treatment, that they would provide support to be sure things work well. I would recommend them without reservation.

"exceptional overall, made a huge difference with air quality inside the house. My house cools down faster than before and saw immediate savings on electric bill." I can go under the house without worrying about "critters" living down there, I am now able to store items under the house in a climate controlled area. Since I don't need to use the vents I will close off under my front porch and use underneath for more storage! The staff was great fast and professional, did not pay until I was satisfied with the work.

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.

The company was accommodating and easy to work with prior to the installment of the Waterproofing system. We purchased our home November 2014. During one of our visits to our new home we discovered a leak in our basement coming through our front steps and leaking under our sill plate. We also had efflorescence residue along the same wall as our front steps. Additional there was efflorescence on a rear corner of our basement. We had several different companies out to give us an estimate on waterproofing the above mentioned areas.

won our business. They showed up on time a began work. I noticed that they workers were not going to the agreed height to take care of the water issue by the front stoop. I called the owner to address the issue and he never returned my call. Instead he called his foreman who was on the job. The foreman

told me that if there were any concerns to "go through" him. The job finished and the waterproofing system did not go to the sill plate. I was told if there were any issues they would come back and fix it. Less than 2 months later after the winter ice began to melt the front stoop area leaked. I contacted

Locker via email along with pictures. They did come back out and attempted the repair again and again it leaked. I contacted Mr.
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
for a refund. He said that he would fix the exterior motar joints of my front porch but I refused. I will not have his company step foot into my house as I'm afraid of what may happen next. I feel as though I was taken advantage of and will not have his company do a $30 repair on my steps when I paid over $5000. I have contacted my credit card company and filed a complaint with the BBB. Hopefully he will honor my request for a refund as I would prefer not to have to go to small claims court.
I would not recommend this company. They had many A ratings on Angie's List, but the experience other people had is not what i had. You may notice in many reviews that
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Locker dealt directly with the homeowner. In my case, I called and emailed him repeated when I realized there were issues with the workman ship and he never once responded to me. He finally called and we arranged a time to meet and he did not show up.
When he finally did show up, he offered to put mortar on my steps - why did I pay $5000 for a waterproofing system if all I needed was a little mortar added to my steps? Interesting question....

came out to give me an estimate of what the cost would be to get rid of the standing water in my backyard. They were not the cheapest estimate but also not the most expensive. His idea was to not
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
an ant with an elephant and to work on this problem an an iterative manner. His thought was that hooking up my two back downspouts, one of my upstream neighbor's downspouts and running a french drain along the west side of my back property would take care of 90% of the job. That estimate was about $3800. I indicated to him after receiving that estimate that I wanted to expand the french drain so that it also spanned the length of the side yard (it had always been wet from my neighbor's drainage into my yard as well as her AC condensation line that just dumped into my yard. Essentially, with the French drain extending the length of my property on the west, I would be catching all of the water that was draining dow hill from my neighbor's property to the west. Before agreeing to add new costs to the job, he scheduled a meeting with me and his work supervisor to evaluate the grade of the side yard and whether this was necessary. I really appreciated that. We ended up connecting the neighbor's front downspout as well as one of my front downspouts, and extending the french drain all the way up to my front porch. This added about $2000 onto the cost of the job.
There were a few other companies I had come give me and estimate and none were as circumspect about finding the right balance between solving the problem but not over doing it (and thus, spending too much money). I had other companies that wanted to put french drains on all 3 sides of my yard with 4 catch basins, which I understand now would have been like killing an ant with an elephant. One of the reasons I chose this company was because I appreciated the iterative approach. I also liked that they were a "drainage" company and not a landscape company. I wanted to work with a company that knew what they were doing when it came to drainage. I also liked that they said they were going to use 4" white heavy duty PVC pipe that would last the lifetime of the house. The black corrugated piping was only going to last 5-10 years at which time I (or the new owner) would have to replace it. I wanted to do this job once, and I wanted to do it the "right" way.
Once I received approval from our
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
(which was quick), he had me on the schedule and started the work 4 days later. They finished 98% of the work within 2 days, and it looked really nice. We had a huge rain the day they finished and I had standing water in a variety of places which I took photos of and sent them along.

came out the next day and had his crew dig up a part of their job and made an adjustment at no charge. For the french drain that spans the length of the property, they laid basic stones on top of the pipes, but then laid decorative river rock and flag stones that double as stepping stones. It looks really nice. There is still about a 10 foot area that still needs decorative stone and flagstone laid, but they said they would be back in the near future to finish that work. I had not planned to spend almost $6000 on this work, but I'm very glad that we extended the $3500 job to also take care of the side yard moisture/ small ponding problem. They made sure that the decorative stone and flagstone matched the color of the house and stone I had used to create a decorative S-pattern in the backyard. There is a small upward slope near the back of the backyard and I couldn't understand how water would move upward through that pipe, so I called
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he was very gracious about meeting me that day after work to explain the work they had done. He explained that when they
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
pipes, they measure to ensure they have at least a 1% downward grade. So they had to dig deeper into the landscape as the land sloped upwards to ensure they still had at least a 1% downward grade. I also asked him about the black material they wrap the french drain in because I was noticing some of that near the top of the decorative stones. My concern was that the french drain was right there at the surface, and he explained that the french drain was at least a foot below the surface and what I was seeing was landscape fabric that could be trimmed. I know I'm always leery about the quality of a company's work these days, but I have enjoyed working with
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew. They did everything they said they were going to do and they did it in a quality manner.
I look forward to our next monsoon!

We have a huge, twisting crawlspace area which was beginning to have moisture issues and had several areas with torn insulation and ripped plastic sheeting.
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out for the initial inspection and spent a long time squirming through and photo-documenting the entire crawlspace, including the back half which has a very tight ~2' height. Seeing pictures of those dark corners was eye-opening with numerous torn up areas thanks to various wildlife getting in.
The price of the job reflected our complex crawlspace layout and the amount of work involved. The team spent several days here extracting all the old insulation, cleaning everything out, treating mold areas, then completely sealing the crawlspace including blocking the existing vents. Overall a huge job that was extremely well done. The result is so much nicer that before. We highly recommend their services.

They were punctual and responsive. After they left, I couldn't lock two of my doors after they winterized them. So they had to come back that night to fix the problem. I still have problems locking those two doors but I manage it.

Workers were very courteous and prompt. Major project that took three days, but the cleanup and dust proofing was great. I had special circumstances with my show dogs and they worked with me in every way. I was highly pleased with their people...nice, courteous, hard working. My basement's water issues are taken care if so I can proceed with finishing the basement. Should have used them a long time ago!!

and his team are very professional and did an excellent job. They mapped out the project and explained clearly what was to be done. They had to dig a trench across the entire backyard. You can hardly notice where it was dug. We have noticed a big improvement in the drainage of our yard. We will use them again.
