came promptly at the designated time. We had someone come to repair this six months ago but the basement contained" to leak.
ground out the substance that was initially there before filling the cracks. He took two hours to do this and did a super job of explaining in
terms exactly what he was doing. He thoroughly explained the warranty and said to call him if there were any additional water concerns. We are hopeful that this has solved the problem. Again, a huge thank you to
for the outstanding job that he did. I can see why there are so many positive reviews for this company on Angie's List!

"I had a crack in the foundation and the wall was bowing in. Furthermore, the rear foundation wall was also leaking water. I called Foundation Specialists and set" up an appointment for an inspector to come out. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a proposal to fix our foundation issues. A few weeks later, the crew came out to install the wall anchors and drain system - it only took a few days! The workers were very friendly and did a fantastic job cleaning up when the project was complete.

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.

responded immediately to my request for graveling and provided a quote after I emailed a picture of the status of my drive. He honored that quote to the penny. We scheduled a mutually agreeable date. He and his father,

A. J. Waterproofing was prompt at coming out to view the job and give an estimate. The estimate process was a much better experience than what I went through with the larger basement waterproofing companies. The day the job was scheduled the crew was on time, worked diligently and left the job site clean. Given the amount of concrete, dirt, stone, and cement that was transported from the basement through the house, the crew did a great job and the final product looks and works great.
- Christopher M.

Very knowledgeable of the situation, prompt, hard working crew and absolutely solved my problem. This has been an ongoing issue for many, many years with no answers. I now do not use sandbags and I don't have to worry when it rains. Great to have peace of mind.
- Sally J.

He walked the property, saw our pits and pumps. Informed me we should install interior drain tiles because exterior tiles will eventually go bad. And install larger sump pits. I asked for a write up and estimate. He said he would email it to me, and i have not heard back. I sent him an email letting him know I hadn't received an estimate, again, never heard back.
So, cannot comment on any work since i never heard back on any estimates. Zero follow through. However, he did arrive at specified date and time.
- William L.

I have used this company twice now for two separate cracks in my basement wall. Both times I have used the company the phone receptionist was very polite and attentive. I was scheduled quickly and the person performing the work arrived timely. The cracks that I have had repaired have not leaked again and I have a solid warranty on them if they do for no extra cost.

was very professional, knowledgeable, and honest. He provided sound advice and advised against doing additional work that was not in our best interest. They delivered high quality work at a fair price.
- Bradley F.

He spent a good 45 minutes looking at the basement situation and outside drainage and grading. He carefully explained an intermediate plan we could tale to stop the water short of having a drainage ditch and sump pump installed. He told us what product to use to seal the basement seam where the wall meets the floor, and he also explained how we could stabilize a couple footers in our crawl space where water had washed away some of the dirt over the years.
He outlined a couple different options we could take if we needed to stabilize our wall and never sounded like he was trying to push us into a deal.
We worked with

before on our old house, where they did $3,000 or $4,000 in work for us. We still had some leaks after, and they returned to patch a basement wall on the outside and install a bigger drainage plate inside to catch more water as it came down. They were very responsive about this, and the second trip came at no cost.
