"We had two quotes for this job, and ARW's was the most reasonable. We have worked with
Bird and his company before and were very pleased" with the work. We planned to expand our home with two different additions, and we needed to correct the negative grade sloping into the west side of our house. The area in which the ARW crew had to work was very constricted, and the cement for the footers on the west addition had to be transported manually from the cement truck due to space and access problems. This was very demanding, laborious work that also required a great deal of skill in order to match up existing foundations with new ones. The mason was very professional and took great pride in his work. All work was performed as agreed in a timely and professional manner. All trash was removed from the job site upon completion of the work. The retaining wall looks great, and we were very pleased with the slab and the foundation. I would highly recommend ARW for any type of foundation work or water problems.

is AWESOME! He contacted me within minutes of leaving a message for him and came all the way across town (over an hour) to check out our" problem within a couple of hours. The downstairs toilet tank had broken and water had run into our crawl space via an air vent in the floor. Our crawl space is encapsulated so we had some standing water on the plastic within the space. I contacted him late in the afternoon and after checking everything out, he said he would return the next morning to ventilate the encapsulation, which would allow the water to drain into the ground. He was here as planned and got the water cleaned up, re-sealed the lining in the space, and re-checked everything before leaving the crawl space. He said everything would dry out very quickly and we should not have any further issues. He even offered to come back by our place the next time he's over this way so he can verify that everything is still in order. I asked him a few questions not related to this project, and he was happy to answer and offer any information/help he could. He even offered suggestions and helped me talk to the plumber about toilet replacement options. The cost of the work was VERY reasonable. I would hire
again in a heartbeat!

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.

also took with him about 8 retaining wall blocks with him that I paid for they were $7.82 each. On the fire pit, the fire ring was supposed to be centered, it is off about ten inches and he was supposed to put re bar in the rail road ties to keep them in place he told us that he would do that , he never did. I have tried calling

did no full fill our contract and I feel what he did was theft. I would not hire him for nothing and I recommend any one thinking of hiring him to think twice he is a thief and con man.
- Jon B.

Provider was very professional and spent a good amount of time going over everything - options, work that would be done and cost. Answered any questions that I had. I have not gone ahead with the work at this time but would not have any issues with hiring this company.

and his staff were courteous and thoughtful, going so far as to lend a hand with carrying groceries to our door when our driveway was not accessible. Bill also contacted a professional arborist to determine the best plan for dealing with uprooted trees and shrubs. Quality workmanship from a quality company. We highly recommend

and his crew were prompt and courteous. All ceiling tiles and concrete debris was removed. Sistering of the log beams proved difficult because of existing piping and electric lines but

- Mary Lou B.

It went poorly because our basement took in water AFTER having an additional sump pump and drainage system installed. The lack of responsiveness leaves us further frustrated. This should be an emergency appointment and as it stands now we are expected to wait w weeks for repair. I have an event scheduled to be held in my home in a week so it's unacceptable that this repair isn't being treated as an emergency appointment.
- Pam C.

I had conducted both a short test (First Alert) and a 6 month long alpha track test (AccuStar) to determine the level of radon present in the finished below-grade room of my house. Both test results showed that the radon level was elevated significantly above the EPA's maximum safe level of 4.0 pCi/L ( the short test indicated 8.2 and the long test was 7.1).
Based on Angie's List reviews and the recommendation of a neighbor,

was selected to provide a quote for a mitigation system. Following a visit to my home,
Grain Valley Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided several choices for the location of the system. After discussing the pros and cons of each option with
Grain Valley Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, a solution was chosen which provides effective mitigation and minimal visual impact.

and his assistant,

, were very punctual and did a very professional and neat installation.

explained his work to me at every step of the way.

then set up his radon detector to determine the level of effectiveness of the system. The reading taken after several days of testing was below 1 pCi/L, much lower than the EPA's
Grain Valley Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
point. The system reduced my radon level to one eighth of the level that was present without the system.
Several days later the electrician,

, completed the permanent wiring to the radon blower.
I am totally satisfied, and now feel safe about using the below grade level of my home.
- Jack M.

After getting 4 estimates,
Grain Valley Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was moderate and did the best job explaining how they would fix our leaky basement problem. The work was done quickly and done by hand so as to minimize damage to the lawn and plantings. The manager came out and checked the job when it was finished. Cleanup was pretty good, but we will still need to do some work on the spring, as would be expected. My only complaint (relatively minor) was that some of workers played REALLY loud hard rock music right under our window....my husband was recovering form surgery and couldn't go upstairs. We should have said something. The basement has stayed dry so far. We will have them out next year to do more work.
- Cindy M.

Was on time and professional. Drain tiles inspected on house we were in process of purchasing. Received report after inspection complete, approximately 2 hours after start. Professional, courteous service.
