"I trusted
's analysis and proposed treatment. The treatment proposed would have been a long-term solution that involved an internal" excavation. It would come with a 30-year warranty and a dry basement guarantee. It would have cost around $3,000+, so we decided not to go that route just yet, while we wait for our home builder to "hopefully" step up and resolve the issue. But the inspection, analysis, and estimate all seemed fair and
was knowledgeable and professional.

Angie's Answers

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.




Basement Waterproofing reviews in Franklin


Overall, the entire experience was positive, from the assessment and estimate through the repair process itself. The two gentlemen who provided the services were professional and competent, and responsive to our questions. And the final cost matched the estimate. No mess was left behind, either. We would unhesitatingly recommend Aqueduct to anyone having similar issues.

thoroughly examined our basement and gave us a detailed estimate. (The job was worth about 100K.) In the end, we decided to go with a company that offered complete remodeling services, since we wanted to install a new bathroom. But we were impressed with

came over to give me an estimate and was really great. Another company had tried to upsell me and tell me I needed a whole new drain tile system, but
Franklin Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, probably costing himself money, assured me that a new sump pump would solve the problem for a fraction of the cost.
After that, communication was an issue. After I sent in my deposit, nobody got back to me about when the job would happen. Even after they cashed my check, I had to call three days later and get the information myself. And even then, I was just told a couple of days as a range. Every piece of information, be it getting the final estimate, booking the job, or getting the date for the job, I had to initiate contact every time. It was kind of like pulling teeth.
When the crew did come, they worked Friday for about four hours and then left, saying they would finish the job Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. They didn't come back at all that weekend and none of my phone calls or messages were returned. It was extremely frustrating. I understand that things come up and appointments are missed, but to not call and let me know and make me wait around my house all weekend was totally unprofessional.
However, when they did finally come back on Monday, they got the job done and it looked great. They did a very professional job and they worked their a**** off. I really appreciate that. The communication problems were frustrating, but the job itself, when completed, was excellent.

Arrived on time. Showed provider the problem that water was entering from above in the basement. Provider showed that his product would resolve problem for water entering from the ground. Product does not resolve my problem. Problem caused by overflowing gutters that sends water down the side of building. Gutter guards will resolve the problem.

The job went perfectly! Mr
Franklin Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to my house and explained everything he was going to do. He and his team showed up when they said they would and finished the job even sooner than expected. He not only replaced the piece of pipe he told me he was going to replace, but he also saw other pipe that needed replaced and did that at no extra charge. He repaired some small cracks in my basement wall and waterproofed the entire wall. When that was done - and gravel and dirt replaced - he planted grass, seeded the area and covered it with straw. They also re-graded the swale in my yard, seeded the area and covered it with straw. They even watered both areas! They were professional, great to talk to, answered any and all questions I asked and thoroughly cleaned everything up when they were finished. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would definitely use them again! It took a few months for them to get to my house, but that is because they do such great work at an excellent price! They are definitely worth the wait!

examined the walls and said there was no bowing and to worry. He said that he thought the water coming in was following the path of my chimney and it probably needed some

pointing. He didn't charge anything for time. I would definitely call him again.

successfully solved a leakage problem in the rear section of my basement around 9 years ago so when I encountered water leaking into my storage room in the front of the basement this summer, I immediately called them for an appraisal and solution.

arrived at the promised time, did an inspection, and concluded that I would not need the extensive work (French drain, sump pump, etc.) that had been necessary in the earlier work. He explained that the solution would be better handled by a landscaping company and listed exactly what a landscaper needed to do to solve the problem. As in the past,
Franklin Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was extremely honest in handling my situation and did not try to convince me to do something that was unnecessary. I knew beforehand that they would react this way because that was the experience that I had with them in the past. Back then, they were the only honest and only reasonably priced organization doing this type of work - at least among the few that I had called for estimates and appraisals. I strongly recommend them to anyone in need of the services they provide. One cannot go wrong with them or with
Franklin Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. They are definitely not your usual "run of the mill" waterproofing company but one of the most exceptional companies I have ever dealt with ---- and this includes every type of home service company.
- Sharon B.

They started on time (despite delays in other projects because of extremely wet weather earlier in the year), and finished on schedule (a major accomplishment considering the magnitude of the project). They were organized, professional, knowledgeable in all aspects, and hard working. They kept me advised of the goals for the day and answered all my questions honestly and respectfully. They were always on time. I enjoyed having the crew around.
The job was done correctly. Did it right versus quickly. At the end of the day they cleaned up any messes and made sure any equipment was not in our way. At the end of the project they helped put my things back in place in the basement, and cleaned up all debris. They finished the outside by bringing in topsoil and planting grass seed.
As the customer they always put me first. If they had questions they asked rather than assumed. They made sure I understood what was happening at each step along the way.
I highly recommend
