Contacted them three times - received one reply - and then nothing in over a week. I'm finding this to be the case of most contractors on Angie's List. You can call - but MOST contractors DO NOT call back. Angie's List is proving to be a useless tool at this point and I would not recommend this company or Angie's List to friends/family.

We truly enjoyed working with better basements and spoke to many other foundation companies before deciding to move forward with better basements. We met with Reo of Better basements first and they recommended replacing one of the clay block walls that was starting to buckle at the bottom and had many cracks. Although they install waterproofing systems and our basement could use one, they did not push them on us which many would do. They were able to squeeze our job in between other jobs and were able to completely demo a wall and put a new one up within 3 days. The workers were very friendly and professional and took very few breaks. We are extremely impressed with the end result as well as this companies ability to communicate with us. They were available at a moments notice through not only phone calls but texting and were quick to respond to any missed calls. We would definitely recommend this company to others.

was extremely professional and helpful. We scheduled an appointment right away. The technician was also very professional. He arrived early, and completed the work timely and cleaned up. I would most definitely recommend Reliable, and I am going to use them for additional work.

Wow!! I am taking the time to write a review here because
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew at
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
really deserve extra special recognition. I had a large amount of work done and it is really impressive. I would use the word "clinical" to describe how clean, bright, dry and fresh my
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is now. I was hoping for a big improvement but my hopes and expectations were exceeded far beyond what I had hoped for. The air in our home is drastically different now and
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's encapsulation is a MAJOR improvement in air quality. I did lots of research on
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
encapsulations and interviewed three other
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
encapsulation companies before hiring
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. The reason we went with
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is that he handles himself with class and dignity and doesn't try to "close" you. He lets his obvious knowledge and his excellent communication skills do the talking. One other thing about
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is that he is so professional and in control at all times of what is happening on the jobsite vs other contractors who just let their employees go unsupervised and therefore are not aware of what is really going on at their jobsite. You will not experience that type of treatment with
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. They handled our home with "white glove" treatment the entire time never creating and especially not leaving behind any kind of mess. With a large job like I had that featured several moving parts I was so appreciative of how communicative and detailed
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was and that he went out of his way to keep me updated on the daily progress as well as the arrivals/departures of he and his staff at the jobsite. I strongly recommend
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and

because they are a genuine pleasure to have dealings with

did a great job! He and his crew were always prompt, efficient & respectful of my home and family at all times. I am truly thrilled with the job they did. My house is currently for sale and
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
knew how important it was to me that this job be done right...and it was. His crew completed the disinfecting that was related to the mold he found which was not too bad but nonetheless needed to be addressed. When the disinfecting process was completed, it was left to dry for twenty-four hours with the aid of fans. After inspecting the job & approving it the crew began the painting/waterproofing process. My basement (which I thought of as an old cellar is now a clean, fresh white basement that I can be as proud of as I am with the rest of my lovely home. And, in addition to the excellent work that was done,

Insulation and mold was done on Friday, August 15th. They did a good job. Second crew came out on Monday, August 18th. They installed new insulation in crawl space and put down materials to seal the area. They removed all loose items in crawl space and raked it out. Overall a very good job.

and his son,
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
were great. They came and dug up the whole front of the house, and waterproofed.
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
explained what they were going to do and arrived as scheduled. They did us a great favor, and were able to squeeze us in their schedule which I was very appreciative of--because of all the rain, our basement was leaking! I was very pleased with their professionalism, and cleaning up after the work was done. We had a drenching rain since they have finished, and the basement is wonderfully dry! I would recommend this company because they are definitely experts in this line of work. They are wonderful to work with!

Six years ago we hired
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to add drain tile to our basement. It was very damp and moldy, paint was peeling from the block. At that time we knew nothing about drain-tile and relied on their professional experience to suggest a setup. They installed a system that ran about 3/4 of the way around our house. They installed the sump towards the back of the house where it would drain into the back yard. They came and did the work - everything worked reasonably well at first. The sump kicked on and pushed the water out into the backyard. It was always a bit inconvenient for a couple of days after the rain, because the water needed to drain from the backyard. I wondered why they didn't install the pump more towards the front of the house where there was a natural
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
away from the house into the street. I eventually bought a 40 foot hose to push the water out to the front. I was concerned this would wear the pump out quicker; especially the last couple of years when we've had so much rain and snow. We decided to complete the rest of the basement as the paint was still peeling and the walls were moldy where they decided, in their professional opinion, not to put drain tile. We called them for an estimate, which took several weeks for them to come out. The same sales rep,
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, came out and we discussed options, I also asked about moving the sump as well as Radon mitigation. I explained that the initial placement of the pump was a poor choice and that they should maybe share the cost of moving the sump; especially since we were repeat customers and were considering Radon mitigation. They refused - they couldn't explain why they choose to drain into the backyard, but were adamant that they had done nothing wrong. I called to speak with one of the Supervisors, Char, who initially seemed to listen. She promised to speak with
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and get back to me but I've heard nothing. All of this interaction took a couple of months as they were never responsive and I needed to call several times to get a response. Anyway, the short of this is that I never expected to get anything for free. I expected to pay for all services, but since we had already paid them several thousand dollars and were looking at the possibly of paying them 2-4 thousand (with Radon mitigation) more I thought they could, in good faith, share some of the responsibility; especially when their estimate included unnecessary items like an electrical outlet installation for $525 (not as an option, but built into the price) - there is an outlet available. I relied on their advice, which was my fault. If you choose to hire this
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, do not trust their judgment. Double check with other experts, but if you do hire them and something goes wrong, don't expect them to be forthcoming about fixing anything.

He arrived just a little late, but had called beforehand to let me know. His approach to solving the problem seemed to be the best of the 3 companies I consulted with. The other 2 had wanted to manage the water after it came in (expensive drain tiles and/or expensive dehumidifiers), and didn't seem to even consider preventing the water from getting in in the first place.
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only one who pointed out some great ideas of how to keep the water away from the house. He took my e-mail address and said he would send me an estimate. After no receipt of an estimate in a couple of weeks, I contacted him again through his website and re-requested an estimate. He never got back to me. I think he was very knowledgeable and would have done a good job. However, it seems like a lot of service providers don't want to do work for Angie's List customers, and my assumption is that they might fear getting an undeserved rating.
