Golden Basement Waterproofing Articles

Sample Reviews


Repair on the pipe good.
Responds to numerous calls for service went unanswered. When the first date was finally established no one showed up. Two months later set up another appt. The repair was done and I was told that I needed to contact the manufacturer of the $1700 dehumidifier, make arrangements to send it back and deal with it myself....More /> Fortunately, the manufacturer was very responsible and I had a replacement quickly.
My major problem with Green Mt. has been trying re: communication. I was originally told (by the owner
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
) that I would always be able to speak to him regarding any problems with the system. That is totally "not the case".

was excellent through the whole process. He was on time for every appointment and answered all of my questions and I had plenty. They did all the work in the time frame we established and for the price we established (no by the way it's gonna cost more than we thought). All in all it was an excellent experience I would definitely use them again but hopefully I don't have to.

was very professional as well as personable. He and his crew worked very hard during very hot weather to finish the

. The finished product is outstanding. He definitely delivered a top rate job. His work also comes with a 25 year warranty . That was a definite plus for me.

He appeared very knowledgeable and was very professional. Did not try and pressure me for anything. If I had another issue I would contact him again for future service and would recommend him

Sold my house but the township required two cement sidewalk blocks to be replaced due to heaving at the edges. Spoke with
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, owner of
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to request quote (very nice) and confirm he had done work in the township before and was aware of their requirements for replacement. I contracted with
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
at the end of June after seeing their "A" rating on Angie's List. They also came in with the lowest bid. Settlement was planned for 8/12/14. I spoke with
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
on several occasions (also very nice) to determine when the work would be completed as settlement was contingent upon the work being done. I was told they were very busy and would fit me in when they were doing work in the area. Work originally scheduled for sometime the week of 7/14, probably toward the end of the week on Thursday. Got home from work on 7/10 and the blocks were dug up. I thought this was a good sign since getting it dug up sooner meant getting done sooner, right? On 7/11, I rec'd a call from
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
that the township required a signed proposal from me before issuing the permit. Shouldn't the permit have been issued before they started the work? I immediately emailed the signed proposal to
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. On 7/20, I contacted
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
again to determine schedule. I was told that rain had pushed them back and they would probably be out the next week. On 7/22, I decided to call the township to ensure all was right with the permit. They had no record of a permit being issued to
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
for my address. Township
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me she had never heard to them. At this point there were a lot of phone calls back and forth to
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the township. I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere with either of them. On 7/24, I rec'd a call from
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
stating the job was done. I asked him if both the pre pour and post pour inspections had been completed. I was told yes and he wanted to pick up the check that evening. I agreed. Then decided to call the township back. They informed me that the post pour inspection had not been done. I called
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
back and refused payment until my realtor rec'd the certificate of occupancy. At this point I wanted to ensure all was ok. On 7/25, I rec'd the permit from the township in the mail. It was dated 7/24 and the contractor was listed as
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's Concrete. On 7/31, the certificate of occupancy was issued. I called
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to see when he was going to come to remove the forms,
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and pick up his check. He told me that should have already been done. I questioned the subcontracting to
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's Concrete. He told me he didn't subcontract but this was someone he used when he got busy. He told me he would call/come by on 8/2. No call - no show. I pulled the forms out myself on 8/3 and filled the gaps with soil. I left a message for him later that week stating that the
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and forms needed to be removed from the property before settlement. Mailed his payment on 8/11 before I moved. Making settlement is a tense time for anyone. This experience just made matters worse. Cannot recommend this contractor based on my experience.

The crew of five arrived on time. They were polite, communicated well, and had time for all my questions. They worked efficiently and neatly, taking care to cover the contents of my basement so they did not get dusty. The crew was finished by the end of the day. The job looks great, and it was tested on Saturday with lots of rain all day. There was no water at all in the basement, not even a damp wall, for the first time in many years. With a rain like that, I would had seen water dripping in through the block wall, and it would have made a little creek and pond in the middle of the basement.

The crew came in on time and was professional. They abraded the surface of the concrete block walls prior to installing the Carbon Arnor straps.

The problem was that the process of abrading the walls--scratching them up so they would accept the straps-- was incredibly messy. The office called us a few days before the procedure to warn us to cover furniture and so forth but we had no idea that the dust from scratching off the concrete block walls would fill the room so that you couldn't see two feet in front of you. This went on for hours. The dust began to infiltrate the cold air returns and make its way into our living room. It billowed onto the carpet and onto a bookshelf in that room. That's when I called the office to complain about the volume of dust. To their credit, they handled the complaint promptly and professionally.

I actually talked to the owner,
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Baker, at least three times that day. Once to explain the situation, later to determine if we should stop the procedure and finally, after we decided to finish it, to negotiate a discount for our trouble. I asked for $400 off and Mr.
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
agreed to $200.

Although I was upset at the volume of dust and suggested that in the future, salesmen warn customers as to how much clean up to expect, I felt Baker handled the job well under the circumstances. I was very impressed that the owner actually got on the line and made a serious effort to understand the problem from my point of view. Therefore I would recommend them and use them again if the need arose.

came out and gave an estimate, and after he presented it to me, I called him and asked questions, had things clarified between me and him and he presented me with a second estimate, that included absolutely everything that the other company, who was then the 'front runner', was providing. He made it an apples-to-apples comparison, and a couple of times I almost told him he had the job. Unfortunately, the absolute decision maker was timing - the August 21st flood came - American Crawlspace was quoting an almost 4 week lead time, and my basement was being a little more demanding than that. The other company was only two weeks out, so I promised them the job.
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
did absolutely everything he could have to
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
the job - it was, really and ultimately, ONLY a matter of timing. I would have no hesitation recommending them, at least for the initial contact part. Judging from the comments left, I think they would do a fantastic job all around, too.

One of the reasons I called them was the reviews given here that they had offered other suggestions besides waterproofing to try to mitigate.
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and we looked at everything. He offered me two suggestions to try first for mitigating my problems. One involved having the ground dug up to check the sump pump piping and such. He gave me a referral that was also on Angie's List. The other was to have a landscape company redirect water by building the ground up away from the damp spot.
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was prompt, courteous and super helpful! He didn't charge me for his time and was candid that I should try the other suggestions first before resorting to waterproofing the entire basement. I really appreciated his time and candor! Thanks

was the consultant who came out to look at the terrible drainage problems we were having that caused our basement to flood. Sandy arrived on time and spent a long time looking at the yard, taking notes and measurements and asking questions. He then took all the information and came up with a very comprehensive plan to resolve all the issues. He gave us drawings of the proposed solution along with a break down of what it would cost. We were very impressed with his multifaceted solution.
The job took three full days and went great! The DES employees are very hardworking and very professional.
Golden Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was my point man and he was terrific! He was very knowledgeable and was very patient with my questions and concerns and explained things in an intelligent manner. The crew arrived in a timely manner every day and worked long and hard. Our yard was completely torn apart during the process, but when they left on the third day, after finishing the job, the yard looked great!
