Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Reviews

"I had a pipe burst due to the extremely frigid temperature and water leaked out on the carpet in the basement through the broken pipe. I immediately had the carpet padding taken out to avoid mold. Though I had no major water logging issues in the basement, I wasn't sure if the leak

was very patient, friendly and helpful. He arrived on time, looked at everything and gave me a truthful assessment. He assured me that we did not have a problem at hand. Basically said he didn’t want to waste my money and everything was in perfect shape since this was a one-time event. He even gave me some useful tips and checked on a few things for me, which ultimately gave me peace of mind that everything was in good shape.

"They told me they'd take care of everything as far as covering things or moving things and rushed me into hiring them. They broke some window sills and some panelling. It was a mess. They came in and made a total mess to my basement. I had to call in cleaning crews to clean up after them. The work itself, as far as waterproofing goes, is good, but they left a mess. They didn't cover the furniture like they said they would and just stacked it up haphazardly. What a mess they made. They didn't care about my home. They were smoking right by my door and it was coming into the home. It was just a total mess when they got done. The owner was very rude when I complained. He wouldn't come out to look at what they had done. He sent someone else to look at things and they said it was normal. If they'd told me that that kind of a mess was normal I'd never have hired them."
"I am young and inexperienced, and this person took advantage of my lack of knowledge and basically robbed me of $9000.00. I had a bad leak in my basement in December 2009. I made the mistake of paying him up-front for most of the work. Although the damage was just in one corner of the basement, this contractor came in and completely gutted the entire finished basement, pulling up all carpet and removing baseboard and approximately 1 foot of drywall from base of wall all the way around the basement. This is ridiculous since the leak was concentrated in just one corner of the basement. Over the course of 5 months,

and his crew were unreachable, and rarely showed up at all, or on time for the work promised. They first attempted to fix a basement leak by replacing the siding on my home (who knows why other than to take my money). They also did other minor fixes on the side of my home. After the leak continued, they dug up my driveway and dug a trench in back (should have done this in the first place). They then put in tar and new cement, and re-cemented the driveway. Of course, they did a terrible job, and the driveway is completely messed up, with cement placed on top of cement. It is completely uneven. I eventually had to pay another contractor $900 to fix the damage. Afterwards, they put the drywall back, but never covered my home theater equipment so it got covered in drywall dust and was damaged. They subcontracted to a carpet company called DC Discount Carpet to reinstall the carpet they had dug up. I paid these guys $400 to show up nearly 9 hours after promised. They did a poor job and part of the carpet the installed came loose. This subcontractor did not answer my calls to fix this and I had to pay another company to come fix the loose carpet. In addition, I had to hire another company to put the baseboard in and finish putting the basement back together because

is the reason I signed up for Angieslist.
"We had a major basement flood due to snow melt and heavy subsequent rains.
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
proposed putting in a sump pump and a drainage system around a portion of the inside perimeter of the basement. It was an emergency situation because the water level continued to rise, even though the clean up crew pumped the water out each day. Budget was able to schedule a crew for the next day, and their work resolved the issue. Unlike other companies that proposed putting a drainage system around the entire basement at a much higher cost, the person who came out to review the situation was very knowledgeable and suggested a modification that focused on the obvious problem areas contributing to the flooding. He was thorough, gave great explanations, explained all of the risks, and convinced us this was the way to go."
"He came here and gave me an estimate. He took the mold samples. I had read on Angie's List that he had free mold testing. He charged us 300 dollars to get the results. We were supposed to get the results back last week and I still haven't heard back from him. He put these plastic little bottles in a room where we have obvious water issues to collect "air samples" he recapped the bottles. He would also stick this little pointed dual pronged tool with a guage on it, into the celieng where there is obvious water damage. He recapped the samples and said that if we wanted the results we had to pay 300 per sample, he recommended that we do 3 samples in each area. He claimed he never offered to present that special free testing. He also looked around at some damage and gave us some estimates. I have not made attempts to contact him as of yet. And he would just quote estimates with out measurements, not taking, pictures. He just walked around and quoted me money for some rooms and told me he would email me for the others. He explained that he was going on vacation with his family but was willing to contact me once he reached his destination. I said "No, that's okay. You have a good vacation, and I'll hear from you on Monday." I still haven't heard from him. I understand that things come up and that people should be understanding but I do not care for my expereince with this company thus far."
"The rep listened to the problems and walked around and we discussed possible remedies. He took my email address and promised to send an estimate, but I never received it or heard from them again. That was about 2 months ago."
"This company is very efficient and true to its word. My phone call was promptly handled, an appointment made with an engineer,
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Ford, (a little bit of a wait for the appointment but worth it), the engineer arrived exactly on time. He was beyond helpful in assessing my problem, even giving me advice on other remedies that are beyond their scope of work, drawing a schematic of the work they would do that mostly involved backfilling eroded areas, putting in clean outs for the drains, re-routing and replacing some of the drain pipes. The workers also arrived on time and did an amazing job of preserving the many plantings I have around the areas, replacing sod and cleaning up. Best of all, we have had at least 2
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
washers since the work and my basement is dry! I expected to have to pay at least $5,000 to do this work, but the charge was under $1500.
"I found out that they were not using the right materials in the product that was agreed upon, In this case, it caused leaks that they had to continue to fix over an extended period of time. Poor service."
"It went very well. The workers finished in half the time, cleaned up after themselves and did a very neat job. They also showed up on time and got right to work."
"Outstanding experience. We met with three companies before choosing Basement Doctor - and it was the right decision. Their description of what to expect was extremely accurate (how long it would take, what it would look like when it was done). They took extra steps to make sure clean-up was minimal (asked us to turn off the heating unit's fan so dust from the concrete wouldn't carry through the house, put up plastic sheeting to minimize the spread of the dust). The crew arrived and finished when they said they would - and did an excellent job of cleaning up. When installing the pipe to pump the water back to the outside, the foreman took extra time to determine the most inconspicuous way to install it - and to tap it into the existing drain pipe system (you'd have to know to look for it to even know it's there). All in all, an excellent job - have recommended them to other people."
