Basement Waterproofing Reviews in Akron


The technician was great!Very prompt and courteous, I
showed him the problem and he looked at it.. I explained all that I have done and and didn't know where to go from there! He was very up front and said it is not the foundation or the waterproofing but thought it was the chimney.. There was no selling involved no hard pressure, which is very nice compared to what I have had in the past!
I even got a phone call from
's office to check on the technicians job/ no job, and everything to see if I was satisfied!
So..if you want truthful info..give them a call! They did great by me!

Representative was responsive, quickly coming out to look at our basement and give us a quote. Everything was satisfactory except there was no consideration of the specifics of our situation. The company appears to have a one-size-fits-all for all water leakage issues, and we raised questions about what was causing water leakage in our house, we weren't able to get answers. In the end, we chose not to use the waterproofing service because we were uncertain if such an expensive solution was required. We dealt with problem ourselves with $100 of materials (v. >$7000 estimate).

Basement Waterproofing reviews in Akron


We interviewed three contractors and went with
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team at
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
because they had a very competitive cost.
Our basement had been flooded years previously and was in a state of disrepair for quite some time. The
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Basement team came in and took care of everything quickly and professionally....More /> They installed allure trafficmaster flooring at our request and removed the horrible old (fluorescent shop-light) fixtures and installed recessed can lights. The new drywall was hung very professionally and painted with colors we chose (one wall was an accent color).
I waited a while before writing this review to see how everything would hold up and we did start having problems with our basement stairs. The guys came back and took care of the problem lickety split. The problem was with two layers of very old linoleum. They removed the linoleum, reinstalled the vinyl tiles that match our basement flooring, and now the basement stairs are perfect.
Everything is tiptop and the basement is now our go-to entertainment room.
I only wish we could hire these guys for the rest of the house!

inspected my basement he explained that I did have a water/moisture problem, which I already knew. That was the reason I was getting estimates for basement waterproofing. This was the 3rd estimate I had received for waterproofing for my basement.
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
explained the different ways companies try to perform waterproofing services to homeowners and how his company is by far the best and how they have a lifetime guarantee for the homeowner. After listening to his sales pitch, and researching the company, (saw that they were BBB backed, and on Angies list) I decided to go ahead and enter into a contract for basement waterproofing which would cost a total of $13,030.00. I had put a deposit of $2.727.00 down by Chase Bank check # 1072 made out to Ohio Basement Systems on the date of the estimate(10/24/2013).

stated that his company had financing available for the balance; and called a company to try to get me financing over the phone while he was at my home; unfortunately I did not qualify for the financing. I should have cancelled the contract at that time, but
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated he could get my financing through "other means". Again, I should have cancelled the contract at that point, but I really needed to get my basement waterproofed. So I figured
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
would help me get financing and everything would work out? Well, I called some friends on 10/25/2013 and discussed this contract issue and decided that I really needed to call the Ohio Basement Systems and cancel the contract because I haven't heard back from
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and probably cannot get any financing. Well I called Ohio Basement Systems on 10/26/2013 and was transferred to
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
who stated that you really don't want to cancel this contract and he was basically trying to scare me into believing that my basement was going to cave in. I told
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
that I could NOT get financing and could not afford this remodeling at this time,
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated that he was still working on getting financing for me. I told
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
that I was within my right to cancel the contract within the 3 day period.
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
hung up on me. I tried contacting the company several times during the next 2 weeks to discuss cancelling the contact and was referred to voicemail. I finally contacted the company again in writing on their contract's NOTICE OF RIGHT TO CANCEL on 11/15/2013, explaining I could not get financing for the remainder of the balance. I explained that I wanted my deposit returned to me by 12/15/2013. I have not received anything to date. On 03/02/20/14, I went to the Akron Home and Garden show and Ohio Basement Systems/
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, LLC had a booth at the show.
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was working the booth. I went up to the booth and spoke to
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and asked him how an unhappy customer gets their deposit back from this company?
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated that the company would do everything possible to make sure the customer is compensated and took my name and number and provided me his business card.
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
stated that he remembered my estimate, and did not know that I didn't get my deposit back. He said he would call me back this week and let me know that status. As of this date 03/06/2014, I have not heard anything from the company or
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. If Angies List could look into this, or at least let the company know that I am VERY unhappy with their service, I would be very grateful. Thank you!

Very professional company. Covered everything with plastic very well to prevent dust/dirt. Had a minor issue, but

H. followed up
- Brian S.

Extremely professional crew, hardworking. I was asked questions before they began. They worked three days, finishing the job on time. The basement looks much better, and with the company's high ratings, we're confident things will go well in the long run.

Lack of communication on sales rep part to installers. Basement was not completely brite walled like, I understood it to be left a wall and basement looks uncompleted. Installers also left outside spicket. Running water ran through the cracks. Bill was high. Water ran two weeks. I notified the company.

As of 9/5/11
Akron Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
has completed the work.
- Mechelle R.

They did not cover my belongings as they had promised. All my stuff got covered with dust and debris, my washer and dryer got a lot of debris in them, we had a hard time cleaning them out. My drain got filled with debris also. We went down and covered the stuff ourselves, when we saw what a mess it was. They did not do a good job of clean up as they promised. The sump pump does not look as if it is installed right. It sits up too high for floor water to go into it. Overall, I don't like the way it looks, some of the installation looks sloppy. I think they could have done a much better job. They came back out and inspected it and said they can't make it any better. Oh, they also apologized for the mess, and for getting debris in and on all my stuff. The price is way too high for what you get.
- Priscilla P.

They were as neat and clean as could be, and very considerate of our home. They completed the job with the least amount of disruption as possible. They also have a free life time guarantee!

He was prompt, professional, and did a great job. I haven't had any water problems since he did the work. I would definitely use him again.
