"
F., the person whom I meet first, seem to be a nice, personable and professional. My experience with him was excellent! The work was" managed by a person other than
and the manager in charge (
) showed up ones and never followed up again. The crew were late on the second day and he never bothered to keep me up-to-date as a project manager. He seem to be a dis-engaged manager. The crew were just hard working individuals and tried to be very courteous and understanding.

-Dawit E.

"Bid was good, he was the first bidder that understood that I just wanted my basement resealed and didn't want a new sump and 6K plus project. I can't" really compare his bid because he was the only one that actually listened to me and bid the job I wanted done rather than the job they wanted to do, but it seemed reasonable. He got his crew in quickly and completed the job in one day. My only complaint is about the cleanup, which quite frankly could have been a little better.

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.

did the work exactly the way we wanted it done, in good time, and they were very neat about cleaning up the messiness that this job entailed. We had a difficult time finding a company to handle this job for our old house (built in 1925) and felt fortunate that we found

I called seeking an estimate and got a call-back the next day. The day after that

was at my house giving me the estimate. He scheduled the work starting the day we requested. The crew of three was punctual, polite and explained everything to me. I checked on them frequently and they were happy to show me the progress. Temporary supports were in place while the work was ongoing. In two days they had gone as far as they could go until the lolly columns arrived.

Very Sloppy. Had to call back to remove debris left in the crawl space. Very hard to get hold of. When they finally came back to clean up the debris I noticed after they left that the knob on the dehumidifier was missing. Called to tell them and never received the replacement knob. Regret the whole experience.

I loved this family owned company from my first initial call to set up the meeting, to meeting
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and have him explain all aspects of the process to me so I could understand what was gonna take place. The price was very fair too! I was expecting a huge mess during the project but the guys kept the basement very clean, kept the dust to a minimum and even helped me move my washer & dryer out of the way. I look forward to a dry basement now and highly recommend them to everyone!

Because of too much weight in the closet, clothes rack pulled about 6 feet of sheet rock from wall.
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
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
Ellicott City Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
'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.
