I chose
Athens Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
because of their comprehensive approach to my problem of a crumbling foundation. On the whole, the job is done and and over, but there were a few problems. I thought the sump pump was to go in the garage, but it is in my laundry room. I did not catch error on the document they submitted for my permit, so that is on me. The crew worked hard for two weeks - nice guys. But the yard sustained much more damage than I thought it would. They had to dig a "

" around my house, but instead of removing the dirt as they dug, they let it sit on the lawn for the duration, without even a tarp to protect it: most of the lawn died. They left a lot of debris: brick, rocks, and gravel. The walls leaked in two spots after they completed, the job. The first time a few guys came to caulk, but it was insufficient. The crew chief came the second time and I have not seen any wet spots since. Would I recommend them? Hard to say. The job is done, and the house seems stable! I just wish they had been neater.

I did not need any work done but provider went the extra mile throughout the process. I did not use his service because I was able to resolve the issues by trying other things first.

Really well. The work team was efficient and finished the job quickly on Tuesday. They cleaned up the work area , were polite and well organized. It has rained and poured several times since this work was done but the room is as dry as can be......and I get to sleep through storms! No more wet vac for me!

The reps from
Athens Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
were friendly and professional. They listened to our concerns about moisture and drainage, recommended steps we could take on our own and outlined the services they provide, which they did not feel were necessary in our case. We did purchase a high-level dehumidifier from them, something our structural engineer had also recommended, and are quite happy with it. I didn't feel pressured into spending unnecessarily.

Both jobs went well. He had to dig up part of the driveway for each job, and he filled each excavation with a beautiful concrete fill that, now almost a year later, looks better than new. We had our basement waterproofed in 1995, with a sump pump, and we had started to get water again around 2000-2001. The sump pump was working fine, so we almost spend 9,000 for a new waterproofing job. But before signing that contract, I called Mr.

. He diagnosed the drain problem quickly -- the sump pump was pushing water out to the storm drain but was recirculating back toward to the house because of the collapse by the street. The good news -- when University Heights was hit by a huge storm last month and many basements flooded, ours was bone dry. Definitely recommend his work.

has a very professional and courteous team. The installation team arrived promptly every morning and performed demo and installation work in a very timely and expedition manner. Rather than simply replace the original sump pump, they advised of and installed the sump pump in the correct location to ensure proper water drainage out of basement and away from the property. The basement was returned just as I needed, free of drywall structures and dry.

did not go into the crawlspace to inspect what needed to be done. He gave a brochure on his product and said a written estimate would be provided the next week. Never heard for them again so I went with another contractor.

Shortly after I called (from Angie's List),
Athens Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to the house to assess my problem and provide an estimate. She was very thorough and professional and provided a detailed explanation of what needed to be done and the United process of solving the problem.
She provided a proposal on the spot which I signed and I was provided with a date for the work.
On job day,
Athens Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew arrived promptly (8:30 AM - as promised). They set up a
Athens Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
so that my finished basement and the rest of the house would be protected from the dust and dirt that naturally results from digging up a concrete floor. They were very efficient and were done by 4:30 PM, as promised. Despite the fact that an entire wall of my basement had pretty much been torn up and put back together again, my basement was remarkably clean after the completion of the job.
iSo far, no problems with water - although at this point we have not the type of rain that would provide a true test. The work is guaranteed (and United has been around and should be around to back the guarantee) so I am not worried.
I highly recommend United - very professional and the job gets done exactly as it is scoped out in the proposal - no
