"Our home foundation was sagging in one of the corners due to a washed out storm sewer line. The foundation was ncracked in many places and we were concerned that" the process would continue until we addressed the cause. The company gave us a reasonable estimate for the extensive work that would be required. They were prompt, courteous, and efficient.
, the owner, is knowledgeable and friendly. We would recommend the company to anyone needing similar work done.

"The provider met with use for close to an hour and went through all of our questions. The manager even had the owner come out to check things and make sure we were" being quoted the correct thing and that there would be no surprises. When the time came for the crew to do the work, they showed up every day right on time and besides the obvious noise of the work being done downstairs, we were never bothered. they cleaned up after themselves and did exactly what they had promise. everything has been great so far and we are very happy with what was done. They were also the least expensive quote that we had received. We would recommend them in a heartbeat.

If you need basement waterproofing work, make sure you ask your basement waterproofing contractor these key questions about licensing and experience.

What to expect with basement waterproofing

Waterproofing a basement can be a costly, but necessary, investment. We asked highly rated basement waterproofing companies to provide their best advice.

The damage done by neglecting a crawl space is likely affecting you more than the eye can see, says Vallone. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Nancy T. of Seattle)
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.

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 Ellicott City

Crew chief notified me of the time they would arrive and they were on time. They hand dug the holes for the piers. They inserted the piers and lifted the foundation less than 1/2 an inch. Then installed street creep stopper on driveway and cleaned up. You could hardly tell that they had been there. A problem arose with where the 3rd pier was supposed to go. The crew Cheif met with his supervisor and found a viable solution.

Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his staff were awesome. He trenched the entire basement floor with a
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
hammer. It was noisy and very dusty,. but we were prepared. They covered everything in the basement and moved everything to the center of the floor. Afterwards, they removed all the concrete pieces through a basement window, by hand! They cleaned the basement and did a great job. I would highly recommend this company to anyone!!

The actual installing drain pipe and sump pump was excellent. The work to finish interior panel was only fair.

The bid process was great. I felt really confident that I chose the right company. They were on the higher end for price because of recommendation to replace the entire drain tile (lower price than 2 other full basement est.), but the estimator was so knowledgeable compared to others that I felt I had chosen a reliable company. The job was done on time. The clean up wasn't great but OK - left a lot of little debris in my basement that I needed to sweep up. Within 2 weeks, I had water in the same place as before the installation. After calls and emails, someone came out in December to try to address the water leaking and apply the floor sealant I'd paid for. I had water come up again not long after that fix. Also, I understood from the quote that the sealant would cover my entire floor and it only was applied to the perimeter. My emails with photos about the continued water intrusion and floor sealant have gone unanswered for weeks again. I'm displeased with the customer service and failure to address my concerns and continued water issues.

I had gotten three estimates to have the walls in my basement supported as they were beginning to sag. Pat was the best at explaining what his company could do and also had the best system for the problem that I had. I had many questions and he was always willing to listen and give me a straight answers.Pat and his crew arrived on time and went right to work. Everyone was very professional and the work was completed to my satisfaction. Once they finished they made sure to clean the basement and left it in great shape. I would highly recommend Pat

Contacted us the day after I bought the discounted coupon. Made and appointment to evaluate the problem. Showed up on time, said he could fix the problem for the discounted price (75% $149 for $600 worth of work). Made an appointment for one week later. Showed up on time, fixed the problem, cleaned up after. Great guy.
