Everything went extremely well!
's crew arrived when they said they would and were all incredibly polite. They were a pleasure to work with. I would most definitely recommend ABS to anyone needing foundation services.

We purchased an older house in April which had been updated for resale. Our inspection of the home occurred in April prior to the spring rains. After our closing the spring rains started and we noticed water entering at the corners of the foundation and
smelled musty. I contacted
to inspect
for the source of the musty smell. I determined that the water entering at the corners was due to the downspouts being assembled incorrectly and was able to fix that problem myself but
continued to have a musty smell.
Reed did the initial inspection and found several problem areas in the crawl space that needed addressed including a gap in the foundation footer and a sump pump that was placed in a dirt pit with a dirt trench running to it. The crew (
,
and ? name escapes me) showed up at 8:00 am on the scheduled date and completed all work by 4:00 pm. They removed the existing plastic sheathing that was laid in the crawl space as well as the existing insulation which had mold growing on it. They trenched around the perimeter of footer and installed a perimeter drain to a new sump pump well. The crawl space was sprayed with disinfectant after removing all the insulation. The entire crawl space was covered with several layers of plastic liner and sealed off. The area between the joists along the outer perimeter of the foundation was also insulated with spray foam insulation. The area went from being a really dark, dank, scarey place to a bright well sealed area that can be used for storage.
and the crew were very professional, arrived on time and got the work done in a timely manner.

They came out on a Sunday to show us what they can do and what needed to be done for the house wall and they built up the supporting wall then hand mixed cement and pored floor. Added the pump and drainage . Came in professional and clean with no mess. We are very happy with the results. Thank you.

A Permaseal technician arrived promptly to generate an estimate for project cost. The cost compared very favorably to another vendor so the project was booked and scheduled with Permaseal. The technicians arrived more than an hour past the scheduled time window. I was told this was because severe weather caused them to delay completion of their previous job. The lead technician was very knowledgeable and courteous. It was very obvious his assistant was a new apprentice that required a lot of direction. The interior portion of the job was done quickly and instructions were given on the operation of the pumps and battery back up. The technicians cleaned the work area upon leaving the crawl space. The outside discharge required breaking up a small section of concrete sidewalk. My only major complaint about the job besides arriving a bit late is that the technicians didn't appear to have the best equipment for cutting concrete. That portion of the job took far longer than expected and they didn't leave a clean

at the cut line upon completion. The remaining concrete is very jagged and doesn't look the best. Overall I would recommend Permaseal because of their price and the majority of the completed work. The concrete cut could have been completed much more efficiently and cleanly with better equipment.

Work was completed on time and seems to be performing as promised. Life time guarantee is a nice addition. Sump discharge was not buried deep enough in the yard so that will have to be addressed.

The whole experience was terrific. I had another company come to give a quote and the quote almost gave me a heart-attack. The sales persons attempts to pull on the heartstrings of my wife about the safety of our daughter was a bit over the top as well.
The quote time from
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was in and out in about 40 mins. They emailed all docs and helped me get financing. The install team worked non-stop for almost 3 days. They were very friendly, respectful, and cleaned up each day.
I just had the 1 month out follow up and it was very detailed. I can't say enough good things.

Did what they said overall. Pump used to drain water from sink was damaged in the process. Were kind enough to replace it, but not correctly (parts were missing), so it leaked. Bought a new one and had a plumber install it on my nickel. Been 10 months since work was done and walls that looked good initially are back to where we started. Watermarks/stains everywhere. Looks ripe for more mold. Not sure what it covers, but there's supposed to be a 10 year guarantee. Was told after initial complaint, I need a french drain for $$$$$. Not a good way to up sell, IMHO. Not exactly what you'd call a happy camper.

Excellent.
My original problem was the concrete floor in my lower level (Split foyer home built in 1975 without a sump pump system), had separated from the foundation walls due to hydrostatic pressure, causing severe water damage. Thank you Missouri clay soil.
From the initial consultation with
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, everything went quite well. He clearly explained my options, and costs. His recommendations to solve the problem were right on. He and his crew of five completed the repair in one day, as promised. And, I am happy to report that the installed system is working perfectly. They also used the latest and proven high tech materials.

offers a Lifetime warranty. I called
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
about a month ago (almost a year after the installation) with a minor problem that had developed with the drain pipe outside the house. No questions asked...no hassle. He immediately scheduled to come out and make the necessary changes I had requested. No additional charges to me. Too many times companies offer Guarantees and Warranties, and then, when you have a problem or concern, they look for reasons not to honor them. Not the case with
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. And, I truly appreciated that. Although I hope I won't need their services in the future, I will definitely call
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
again if needed, and, would recommend them to my neighbors and friends as well. Very professional, and, left no mess behind. Good job!

Initial contact with estimator went very well. He was very personable, walked me through the entire process and answered all of my questions. The issues came after the contract was signed. The estimator arrived at my house on a Tuesday (late afternoon) and by the time we were done it was early evening. He said that he would finish the paperwork and have my information back to the office by Thursday and that I could expect a phone call by end of day Friday to schedule the work. After waiting for several days I called the office to speak to the person that does the scheduling. They took my information and said I would be called. Needless to say this back and forth went on for several days. Finally after two weeks from the original meeting I received the call I was waiting for and the work was scheduled.
The work was due to start of Monday,
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
7 and I was a little surprised that I did not receive a reminder phone call, especially since the prior weekend was the 4th of
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
holiday. On the 7th I called the office to find out what time the crew was to show up and was told that their window of arrival was between 8 - 10 am. The crew showed up just before 10 the first morning and around 9:15 the rest of the week. This after each evening the project lead said they would be at my place 8:30 the following morning.
When I spoke with the scheduler I was told that they job would take 3 days, with the county inspecting coming on the 3rd day. When the inspector arrived the job was not complete and he failed the inspection. So, day 4 the crew was back to finish the outstanding work and the inspector returned on day 5. Finally two days after the original time frame my basement was complete.
Today I am now waiting for someone to come back to remount the wall shelving that was removed which I was told would not need to come down to complete the job.

Rod was on time, very professional and full of helpful ideas that would not bring him more money. After inspecting the basement he thought my problems began outside and found the problem spots and offered solutions along with new ideas which should lead to a dry basement. I thank him for his generous time in aiding me without even needing his services. If I do need him in the future I will not hesitate to call.
