Basement Waterproofing Reviews in Powell


This is a project we have put off for several years. We first noticed what we thought was settling in our den via cracks in the walls and along the ceiling. Horizontal and stair-stepping cracks were also noticeable in
and would come and go each year as the weather would warm and cool. Three years before we had this job done, we had a structural engineer assess the situation - he said we could put the work off and monitor it, and if it got worse we would have to do something about it. So the time finally came. I had called Basement Guys (BG) three years ago as well and had an old estimate on hand for reference. The engineer/sales person from BG (
) this time spent a lot of time with us explaining what he found and actually told us that the previous assessment from BG which involved a piercing solution didn't need to be done. This ended up saving us several thousands of dollars.
seemed very knowledgeable and was helpful through the process. The scheduling of the work was
and coordinated. We had to have part of a finished wall removed as a part of the job and due to timing, we weren't going to be able to have it done before the start date of this job. BG was willing to work with us to have their team actually handle the demolition, and I felt the cost to us was very reasonable. The team of people doing the work was pretty small - just 2 men - and the lead on the project (
) did an exceptional job with preparing the work space, making sure everything was covered while they worked, ensuring a CLEAN job, and spending time explaining what they were doing. Candidly I was amazed how efficient and clean this job ended up being. We had 28 carbon fiber strips installed and the work included some intense grinding of old DryLok off of the walls before they could install the strips. The whole job took less than a week. While we do have to monitor the walls and den for any further cracking (which is guaranteed against), at this point I am very satisfied with the overall project. I have recommended BG to family members who have since used them as well.
The only reason I didn't give BG an "A" on responsiveness was because there was a minor issue with a heating duct that took a couple weeks after the job to get fixed. I had a hard time getting a hold of someone at BG to call me back or get a worker back in the house to fix the duct. However, I am happy with the fix they completed.
If you are considering a basement job like the one I've described here, I would highly recommend you call BG. I would also recommend anyone investigating this type of work to do your research and homework - call references and suppliers! BG came out on top for us from the start.

came out gave me an estimate. Told me get another estimate if not comfortable with his. I considered The Basement Doctor &
based on the experiences from people reports on Angie's List. Felt comfortable with
and went with him. Very satisfied with work so far.

Basement Waterproofing reviews in Powell


I love this company. I moved to Ohio one year ago. I was here 3 weeks when the water heater broke. I was so paranoid about mold. I wrote a review about that great experience with Prism. I haven't had any issues or mold problems from that incident. It was such a relief today when

said he would come right over! Basements, storage units, pipes, foundations, sump pumps, etc. are NOT my forte. I am so grateful that he helped me figure out where I need to go from here. He didn't even charge me!

will low-ball a bid, take your deposit and never show for work. He will do just enough to make you think he is ok....giving about every excuse one can imagine....do not use this person.

They also lie about their location. 102 Liberty St, Columbus, OH 43215 is not a valid address...he bluntly told me that he uses that address to make people think they have a real office. I think this is actually a warehouse they used to rent.

waled around our basement, crawl spaces, and outside. He educated us about how our house was built and gave us some advise on how to manage the seeping in the basement. He also walked around the outside of our house and pointed out to us where the grading in the lawn was helping the water make its way to our basement. He recommended a dehumidifier and regrading the lawn and said that we didn't need anything else. We appreciate his honesty and plan to call him again if we have any other basement issues.

came by to do an estimate for insulating and installing a vapor

in my 600 sq. foot crawlspace. The price for the whole job is more than I'm able to pay right now, so I decided to skip the insulation and just move ahead with the vapor

. I scheduled the work and

showed up right on time. He worked quickly and finished everything up on his own in just a couple hours. In the week since he finished the work, the humidity level in my basement has dropped almost 10%! The price does seem a little high for such a short amount of work and the way the vapor

is sealed down is not quite as neat as I'd like, but as long as it holds up and keeps the humidity down, I'm satisified!
- Kara R.

The job took 4 days and required 10 man-days total effort. The workers were very careful to not track any dirt/debris thru house as they went in & out of basement. The basement floor and contents were carefully protected during painting. Job well done.

It went very well. They are very professional. They clean up well and also try to be as clean as they can be while working. We felt like they did a very good job!

Used their web site to request an estimate for said work, they called back within 2 hours. After a day or so, I received a large envelope with all their services described in catalog form. After reading it cover to cover, I more or less knew what I wanted & needed. J&D Representative came out a few days later, was friendly and helpful, didn't try to up sell me on anything, beyond what I wanted. We scheduled the work for early May 2008. Two weeks prior to the scheduled work date, the person who actually would be performing the work came out to scope out the site and we discussed where they J&D would run the new sump drain. He, too, was very professional and friendly. J&D showed up exactly on time, took great care to keep the job site clean. They finished a day early. The results look great, everything neatly done and as agreed to in the contract. J&D does not use sub-contractors, all workers are employees. All in all, it went very well as I was worried about spending such a large amount of money. These guys don't come cheap, though. But I am a believer in "you get what you pay for".

I have a small puddle of water in my crawl space during very wet conditions. Pat and

evaluated the situation and recommended a sump pump for the area. They didn't try to pressure me into having the work done. They didn't try to sell me what I didn't need. The work was done quickly, neatly, and with high quality materials. I was very pleased with the whole process.
