I purchased the deal for a foundation inspection package, and while he did provide helpful information, it seemed like the same information I could have gotten had I just requested an estimate for future work. He checked the moisture we have in one corner, and told me that we would need to have the crack fixed, which we are aware of. He didn't check anything else, and was only at the house for about 20 minutes.

THEY DID THE JOB. BUT IN APRIL OF 2014, THE BASEMENT WAS LEAKING AGAIN IN THE SAME SPOT. I CALLED TO COME INSPECT THE BASEMENT WALL AGAIN,WHICH THE SON DID. HE TOLD US HE WAS GOING TO COME BACK AND INSPECT THE RAIN GUTTERS AND SEWERS TO MAKE SURE EVERTHING WAS CLEAR. WE NEVER HEARD FROM HIM AFTER THAT. I CALLED THE FATHER TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON,HE MADE ALL KINDS OF EXCUSES, WHY THEY WOULDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM.THEY SAID IT WAS COMING FROM OUR GUTTERS. WE HAD SOMEONE COME OUT TO INSPECT THE GUTTERS, AND THEY SAID EVERTHING WAS CLEAR.THE WALL LEAKS ABOUT 4FT FROM THE FLOOR. THE 20YR. WARRENTY DOES NOT MEAN A THING.

Swell! Provider's team was courteous, did the work quickly and everything looks great. They closed off one area of our basement to waterproof and thusfar we've had no issues. It helped prevent some further mold build-up.

14, Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Cherneski, from
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, came to my home on a scheduled visit to assess my foundation to see if it was in need of repair; however, before I continue with my experience with Mr. Cherneski allow me to explain how I came to finally meet him! In the month of November 2013, I was preparing for a seven month deployment to the Middle East in the month of December 2013. I wanted to have my crawlspace thoroughly insulated to make my living room and kitchen area warmer for when family and friends for when they would come to visit and see me off for my deployment. Initially I looked on the internet to try and find a provider that insulated crawlspaces and learned a lot about what crawlspaces certain companies would do work in (based upon the size of the crawlspace). The majority of companies said my crawlspace was too small for them to come and do insulation. Eventually, I came across
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Foundation Repair and they said that they could do the work on my crawlspace - needless to say I was pleased with their response. While looking at their website I noticed their educational pages on actually signs of failing foundations. I was experiencing some of the very signs they described, i.e. spider cracks along the door frames and windows of my home, etc. Concerned about what I was reading I scheduled an appointment to have a representative come out to assess not only my crawlspace for insulation but also my foundation, too, for any major damage needing repair! I envisioned
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
coming out and making a thorough check of the inside, outside, and underneath the crawlspace of my home; however, what I envisioned didn't come to fruition completely when
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
sent out their representative Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Butler. I must admit, Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was professional and very cordial; however, he was also very large (I'm not being superficial at all when I say that) and I knew from his size he would not be able to fit into my crawlspace to assess for any signs of damage! Needless to say, I invited him into my home to hear what he had to say! He came in and used his tape measure to get an approximation of my crawlspace by utilizing my living room and kitchen floors. Afterwards he gave me a quote of what it would cost. Next, I requested his opinion regarding my cracks around my doors and windows. He then said that I had clear visible signs of a failing foundation. He then went outside and checked around the outside and expressed that my home leans forward in the front and backwards in the rear. He did all of this without actually going into the crawlspace. He then told me that I needed footers, etc. to make my home stable and balanced. He gave me a quote of $11,000 to get the foundation worked on. He also said that he would include the crawlspace insulation in the price if I signed for the work to be done with
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After he left, I talked it over with my mom and she expressed to hold off on getting any work done until I returned from my deployment then I would know for sure what I wanted to do and would have a
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to see if the insulation worked or not, since I'd be home the winter of 2014. I'm grateful that I listened to her because when I returned I had to deal with a VERY EXPENSIVE vermin infestation that happened to my home while I was deployed! After assessing the vermin damage, I decided to use Angie's List to
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
for alternative foundation repair specialist to get their opinion. I made hard contact with
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and they sent
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
over to assess my crawlspace and foundation. He arrived on time and was courteous and professional! Shortly after our introduction, he asked me why I called so he could get more detailed information, etc. After that he asked to be taken to the crawlspace. He then proceeded to unscrew my crawlspace screening and crawled through a curtain of spider webs without even flinching. I was impressed because I don't like creepy crawlers or things associated with them like webs! He proceeded to crawl all the way to the dry and dark recesses of my crawlspace - at this point, I could only hear his voice since his body was totally engulfed by the darkness - keep in mind this took place on 18
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
when it was very HOT outside! He stayed in the crawlspace for a considerable amount of time...I just knew the spiders had got him or that he succumbed to the darkness and heat! To my relief, he eventually came out covered in dirt, grime, and spider webs and just brushed it all off like it was nothing! Then he said something to me that shocked me! He said, "Sorry, Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, I would sure like to do business with you but after looking around the outside of your home's foundation and underneath at your home's foundation I don't see anything wrong and can't find a reason to take any money from you",...,...,...,...,...,..., I was speechless, dazed, and confused for a minute because I was expecting to hear the worse and to get confirmation on what Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
had told me eight months ago!
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
then walked with me back into my home where he began to educate me on what he saw by doing show-and-tell! He showed me pictures of what a poor or weak foundation actually looks like and then described my foundation as being strong, solid, dry, and with no signs of failure! He felt so comfortable with his findings that he proceeded to write a report on what he saw for my records...AWESOOOOOOOME! He then began to talk to me about ways to save on insulating the crawlspace to make it warmer and even told me that
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
insulates crawlspaces for dampness only and that he wouldn't try to insulate it because that wouldn't solve my cold floor issues - OMG, this GUY IS ACTUALLY VERY, VERY, HONEST AND DIDN'T HAVE A LOVE OF MONEY AT ALL! He could have hustled me with insulating my crawlspace, but he actually refused...I tell you what...whenever I do have any future foundation issues or if I come across someone who does
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, FROM
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, WILL BE THE FIRST I REFER THEM TO! Eventually, I did experience a pipe that burst in my crawlspace a few weeks after
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to visit (because I didn't leave the valve opened while I was gone) and even the plumber, who actually went into the crawlspace to fix it, said, without me asking him, that I have a very solid and dry foundation that will last for years to come! I then explained my first experience with
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he said unfortunately a lot of unsuspecting homeowners get swindled because they don't know the difference between a bad home foundation or a home that is simply settling because of the weight of the house, etc. Guess what? That was the same thing that
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said (minus the swindling part)! He said that my home was settling because the soil was adjusting to the new addition that was built a few years ago and because of the crazy 2013/2014 winter snow and rain it caused the soil to shift which caused settling! 'm not going to say that Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was trying to
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
me but his inability to access my crawlspace and get dirty and actually see the foundation caused me to reevaluated his motives. I will say no more than that! However, what I can say for sure is that Mr.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Cherneski, from
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked

The repair process was extensive. They didn't just inject some epoxy into the cracks and hope for the best like some other firms that I've used. They used a three step system of packing the cracks, covering them with some type of rubberized compound, and then also digging below the slab so that if there were any other issues the water would go under the slab to the sump. So far no water problems. They also took steps to protect my rugs and cleaned-up very well afterwards. Good job.

A home inspection indicated that I might have a step crack in my basement wall or foundation,
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
me to Angie's List to find a recommended basement company.
The American Crawlspace & Basement
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. was the first company to be listed. I was impressed with their very high ratings, as well as the number and quality of the reports presented by other clients/customers. I called the company an spoke to
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, one of the two owners. I explained the isssue that my home closing was next week, and I really needed to understand and correct, if necessary, the foundation issue raised by the buyer's home inspector.
Within the hour,
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the other owner arrive and inspected my basement for any inconsistencies, water damage, cracks, etc.
He immediately reassured me that the tiny hairline crack the inspector indicated on the report was not at all serious, and that in fact, the area I thought the inspector was talking about, had absolutely no issues.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was professional, prompt, sensitive to my urgency to understand and correct any problem I might have had, and gave me the confidence to respond that I did not have any issues with my foundation/basement.
Carmi Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was also patient since I had no prior knowledge of step cracks or foundation issues and took the time to explain what I needed to know to reply to question regarding my basement.
I asked for his business cards to pass on to my family, friends, and neighbors who have any issues at all with their basements.
A great experience in this day and age when most trade folks seem to take a slight advantage of widows who know relatively little of house maintenance issues.
