The crawl space looks fabulous and very clean. They removed all of the debris and did a great job. My crawl space area and basement are no longer musty. Very dry now with the dehumidifier.

I had inspections and estimates provided by eleven waterproofing companies over the course of roughly one month.
...These guys were the very worst. If I had to sum the experience up in one word it would be "sleazy."
I had an initial estimate date scheduled for 27 May at 8 P.M. They called that afternoon to cancel and reschedule for 2 June.
On 2 June the initial estimate was completed. The salesman (and I mean salesman) actually didn't seem like a bad guy; he took some time to look over a few things before measuring the basement perimeter and giving us a long pitch on why we didn't want other companies' services, we wanted

's services. He talked about
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's proprietary systems and how they were better than others, showed us a video, and gave us an outrageous "comparison quote" for exterior waterproofing (and I mean outrageous - it was something silly, like 3x as much as what exterior waterproofing would actually cost as I had gotten a quote for it before speaking to an interior waterproofing company) before giving us his highball quote for interior waterproofing. He explained that if we signed up we could opt for priority (i.e. you lock in a date) or non-priority (i.e. you don't lock in a date) installation but that priority was obviously a premium charge. Then he left.
A week later

called back and said they'd send a "more experienced" manager out to see if he could save us some money as they had some deals they were running. Seriously,
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, if you're going to tell people they can save money because you are "running deals" don't make the second salesperson simply come out and claim - "flabbergasted" at the mistake - that the first guy measured incorrectly and that the new measurements meant we'd save money. That's not a "deal" on equipment pricing or discounts or financing, et
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. That's you guys being sloppy in your sleazy sales tactics. Either that or you employ incompetent sales staff who can't measure and add correctly. Your call.
About two weeks after that inspection,
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
called back and said they had gotten some "breaks" from their suppliers which could result in even lower prices for system installation if we wanted another salesperson to come out and take a look.
No thanks. I hung up on him. That didn't stop
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
from calling me... Again, and again, and again, and again. They didn't even leave messages when they did call; I just started to recognize the number. Finally, after probably 8 unanswered calls, I picked up and told them in no uncertain terms not to contact me again.
What a joke.
To be honest I thought I recognized a song-and-dance with the first salesperson but truly wondered if
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was that bad and decided to let the second guy come back. Well, fool me once shame on me. Fool me twice and I'll just write down that your company is ridiculous.
No surprise, I went with another company (Value Dry) and was not disappointed in their work.

, owner assessed our water problem and provided an estimate. The outdoor drainage system was clogged. There was excess water on the rear lawn and water was entering our finished basement. We were concerned that our lawn would be compromised due to the installation of pipes. Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
assured us that our lawn and flower beds would not be damaged during the construction process. The job was completed in two days. The construction crew arrived on time on August 6th and 7th. The workers carefully dug up the externior of the home and installed new pipes. The workers created a great system for neatly removing and replacing the soil. The workers were organized, tidy and hard working. During construction, our lawn remained intact. The portion of the lawn which was impacted by construction was almost unnoticeable. I would recommend Weather-Tile Waterproofing Company. It is obvious that the employees were well trained to complete major construction with minimum impact. We are hopeful that our water problem was resolved. The company was obtained from Angie's List.

Arrived on time very professional
Job was estimated to take two to three days but took four due to rain on day.
Arrived around 9a every day on site left around 4:30p
Dug out foundation just as pictured in their video on their site.
When it rained brought a pump to pump our water that was trapped.
The crew improved the drainage at the side of the house and regraded the lawn so the water would flow away from the house and the foundation. This new system is working very efficiently
They cleaned up every area that was dug out or chewed up by the equipment. Grass seed was laid out with straw.
The crew was friendly and interacted with my husband every day.
The job was very well done and worth every dollar we paid.

Called him to look at repair on a Wednesday, by Thursday, he looked at it and emailed me price quote. From start to finish made sure that each and every new brick was a perfect match to the other entry wall. Unbelievable workmanship. So happy with his work, I just had to let someone know!

did a FANTASTIC job.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and bid the work. He accurately figured out what the problem was and provided a quote. I was very impressed with him and the quote was even a little lower than I had feared it would be! A 5 man team showed up on time and they were finished in one day. They were AWESOME. They were courteous, and took pride in their work. They had to dig up my yard pretty extensively, but by the time they were done - you could hardly tell they'd been there. I waited to write this review until we'd had some rain so I could be sure my problems were fixed - and I'm happy to report that they are! My sump pumps go off every now and then - as they should. Even after heavy rains. I've been trying to fix this problem for over 8 months.

Services for any future basement or drainage work - and recommend them highly!

Provider scraped the front yard and had topsoil delivered and spread. The topsoil was of very poor quality and was full of stones. The provider then was unable to obtain sod and in the interim, the topsoil was washed away by rains. After waiting two weeks we had to hire another contractor who quickly placed sod. Provider was asked to refund the soil purchase and he refused.
The walkway installation was no better. Provider was abusive and argumentative about the design,. Despite giving him a drawing he argued about it and tried to get us to change what we wanted (his worker understood but the provider argued with him as well). Many shortcuts were taken and several things he agreed to do were not done. Shortly after the walkway was finished we noticed that it is moving away from the house. Another contractor examined the walkway and explained how poor the installation was and that it would cost $1,000 to fix it.
This provider is incompetent and abusive. I would not hire him to do anything on my property.

Provider was excellent. All work was completed within the three day timeline. Everyone involved was exceptionally neat and took great care to keep
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
neat and clean. All that were involved with the work took care when leaving the house and yard to insure that our four dogs were in the yard, and were wonderful to the people and pets while working.
We are very impressed with the professionalism and concern for our home, and our pets safety. It was a wonderful experience, and well worth the price especially with the lifetime guarantee.

and his team from Perma Dry were prompt, courteous and professional. Their work was all done very professionally on the day scheduled. They were very careful to assure that our job was done well, with a minimum of disturbance to our home and family and that any unexpected conditions were dealt with properly. They cleaned up thoroughly when they were done. I was particularly impressed by how well
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team worked together. They obviously enjoyed working together and treated one another (and us) with respect and worked efficiently as a team. Their teamwork and interactions with one another and with us were uniformly positive. It was a pleasure to have them working in our home.
