"Because of too much weight in the closet, clothes rack pulled about 6 feet of sheet rock from wall.
repaired the sheetrock, mudded and fixed" it so it looks new. I had him forgo sand and painting because another portion of the closet still had clothes hanging up. Being a closet with clothes this was a nonissue. He installed about six feet of horizontal 2 x 4 to existing structure. He then mounted an additional 2 brackets (3 total) to ensure stability. All done professionally. His price was extremely modest and reasonable for the service performed. He works in the northwest Florida area. I was so impressed with his work and cost I have lined up two more projects for him to do as he has time to fit them in. I highly recommend this personable and professional handyman.

"We are building a new home in the Cottage Grove area. We had the foundation poured, and realized we hadn't lined up a waterproofing company for the basement." We contacted several companies, and
's pricing was competitive. They also promised an incredibly quick turnaround, which was very helpful given that we were in scramble mode. They finished the job within a week of first contact, which was impressive. The quality of work was great, though there was a mix-up as far as location of the sump pit. They offered to fix it within 24 hours of my noticing which was appreciated. Even with this small snafu, we were very happy with the work they did in such a short time frame, and would highly recommend.

Basement Waterproofing

It’s easy to do, but forgetting your crawl space can have plenty of negative consequences for the rest of your home from poor air quality to high energy bills.

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.

This is a copy of a letter I sent to the company:
Hello
Lynn Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
,
I would like to request a refund. The person that showed up at my house did a very bad job. I called because I know I have water coming inside my crawlspace from the east wall. Your technician after allegedly being in the crawl space (did not bring a flashlight for a job after 5PM) for less than 5 minutes, came inside the house and after 15-20 minutes of chit-chat about his family history how they came from western Europe, I had to stop him. Then I asked him about the remedy for my problem. He responded " you need easy breeze,(if I am not mistaken that is the name of the equipment he suggested to remove moisture from the crawl space) some leveling of the crawl space with gravel, a vapor
Lynn Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and a sump=pump" . Since I know that I have water infiltrating through the east foundation wall into the crawl space, I asked him what he proposed. His answer? " Do not worry about the wall problem the most important thing you need to do I told you already:,For how much. I asked. $4,400. And wanted me to sign a contract. I asked him how the equipment functions, since he told me some products in that equipment would clean the air. I stated I do not want chemicals, but he did not know how the equipment he wanted to sell really works. He took out some stapled pages with the sketch of an installed equipment but never answered to my question. So why did I pay $39? For an inspection and a plan to solve my problem. I got neither. So please refund my money because estimates I can get for free, and that is what I got, and was not even written down. And please send professionals! Thank you,

AA Action's
Lynn Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Chicherio was the onsite rep. Wow--what a font of information and helpfulness in looking at our structures such as foundation walls, joist spots, sump pump, pointing out weak points both in the intake/exit pipes-n-valves, maintenance of the basin/keeping it dirt-free, along with pointers on air flow in our basement, insulation, and optimum humidity to aim for.

took his time with me and responded thoroughly to my many questions. I did not at all feel pressured to purchase further services from AA Action though--as my sump pump and adjacent structures are aging--I plan to keep AA Action at the top of my list based on this initial contact as I was impressed by the demeanor, knowledge, and openness of their representative

When we hired Mr.

began with

guns with the
demo. Once demo was done he began with the rebuild and quickly said well it looks like we are about half way through i need the other 1/3 of the money. Once that 1/3 was paid work began to slow and he was harder to reach without calls being returned. Needless to say the company that he ordered the vanity for the restroom came by our house looking for him because he did not pay them as of date. Unfortunately i was skeptical of his actions from the beginning but gave him the benefit of the doubt. My mistake was not researching his company at Angie's list or looking up his name at Gwinnett County Courts in our county which when i did i was not surprised of all the pending suites and bad checks issued by

We have not yet used the deal. The staff with the company has been very understanding of our circumstances. We have been having other work done first. They have also been very polite and courteous. They are very accommodating and understanding. Even though the coupon has expired they are still willing to honor the coupon for us.

The gentleman looked over my problem and gave me advice that I am unable to followup on, i.e., ripping out a newly installed floor
and encapsulating the crawl space. I will ventilate it instead.

We are doing a big
Lynn Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
job in our basement and when demo started and the paneling was pull off walls they discovered cracks,mold and cavities of the house foundation! Yikes, this all needed to be repaired before framing could start. The remodeling company we're using has used Basement Master's before and I see why. They (
Lynn Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew) came out next day to see what needed to be done plus suggested to put in a sump pump because of the condition of the house foundation and the way the water drains from the outside. 3 days later the crew came out and job was done in 2 days half our basement! They we're quick and effiicent. We will use again when we finish the other half of our basement.

The inspection was thorough and all questions were answered. Once I explained my concerns, I was provided with several solutions. I chose to have an external sump pump installed. The work was done within a week of the inspection and I received follow up calls to ensure that the job was done to my satisfaction. It was truly a great experience.
