and his crew came on time and did a very thorough installation of a French drain. His price was the best of 4 contractors I got estimates from. He was very accommodating and willing to work with you on fine details of the project. Overall the work went very well, and 2 years later our basement is nicely dry

They did a great job, worked steadily, cleaned up everything, were very nice, and explained everything. They painted the door where needed and re-caulked where needed.

came to the house and evaluated what work should be done. His analysis was the most reasonable in that he was replacing an old system and whereas other contractors wanted to move the location of one of the sump crocks he argued that the water had found its way to the location of the crocks and new ones should be installed in the same locations.
The job was to be two days and they brought in four or five people,

was the crew chief and he was very professional. When they broke into the floor they found things a bit different than expected and made some adjustments after consulting with Pat at the home office.
The second and final day their truck broke down at the shop and they called to tell me they would be two hours late, that is the reason I put a "C" for punctuality. The Fortress straps went up on the slightly-bowed wall but they mistakenly added 1/4" holes for fasteners for a vapor

, two of the holes were put into the Fortress carbon fiber straps.
After they left I noticed the holes and called. Pat answered and told me the holes would not negate the warranty and he sent me an e-mail from the manufacturer saying so. He was very helpful in easing my concerns.

on that wall. We scheduled that for October, it is only cosmetic. We have had a few good rains and the job looks good. The concrete they put over the drainage system, the wall board, the drain board, the new crocks, and concrete around it looks really nice. We don't even hear the sump pumps running anymore with the new pumps and crocks and covers. We are happy with the job.

The short story: This is a glowing endorsement of this company. If you are looking for waterproofing/basement expertise, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT HESITATE to call.
The long story:
We bought a new home and found we had a leak in the basement. We first hired a reputable plumber to check it out, thinking it was a problem with our sump pump because the leak was near there. However, the plumber said it wasn't a plumbing problem and instead thought it was a waterproofing problem. So I went on Angie's list and found dozens of outstanding reviews for this company and went for the $55 consultation. Boy, was that the right move! I should have known with the reference packet he sent us before his visit and the awards he's received on Angie's list.

(the owner) responded promptly, came out and was professional, courteous, and had a great manner. He was very collaborative in his approach and walked us through his evaluation every step of the way. He took his time and had a few hypotheses of the problem, but ultimately, one of his suggestions was correct: it was a small leak in the main sewage line going into the wall near the sump pump- it was his observation of the drain flies that made him think this. It was real detective work!
I should mention the process actually took 2 visits, with in-between suggestions on discovering the problem. Initially, we all thought it was a drainage issue, and we talked numbers for replacement (his quotes seemed reasonable). However on the second visit, he cracked the case by his suggestion, as he was insistent on checking the root of the problem (which turned out to be plumbing problem, misdiagnosed by first plumber). I have never met a contractor that was as transparent, honest, and dependable as he is. It was truly awesome.
I will recommend him to all my friends and family and feel wonderful about having consulted him.
A real gem in the back pocket!

I purchased an Angie's List special deal for a basement inspection as occasionally we have some spots of water after a heavy rain. The person who came to inspect our basement was fine, and they left a written suggested scope of repair work. That all went according expectations. Unfortunately, for almost every single day following that visit, right through today, I have received Spam marketing phone calls on my cell phone (given to the Service Provider in order to arrange the initial appointment) offering me special deals on basement drainage equipment and installations, despite asking them to stop. I've since gone on Google and see I'm not the only person to have this complaint. DO NOT GIVE THESE GUYS YOUR PHONE NUMBER.

We were very pleased with

and sons. They were very professional and completed the job in a timely matter. We felt that they were very attentive with our problems and made sure the job was done before they considered leaving for the next job. They cleaned up after and left everything as before.

The "salesman" that arrived was extremely rude and arrogant. He seemed completely uninterested in actually looking at my basement or external perimeter wall to assess the issue, and in fact during the time that I was asking him questions about my basement, he made statements that were not correct about what I attempted to show him. Essentially, he sounded like he was there to sell me a sump pump. He showed me a booklet of pictures, which are the same pictures found on the company website, and told me all about how the sump pump would solve the problem. He stated that it didn't matter if the 100+ year old parging on the stone and bricks walls was replaced, and the only thing I needed was a sump pump. I began asking questions about the services needed in relation to my basement specifically, which is when he became extremely rude and arrogant. He didn't want to explain why other fixes were/weren't needed, he just wanted to sell me a sump pump. My wife and I are both very well educated people, we received other contractor assessments, spoke with family who have dealt with similar issues, and I discussed this will a friend that is a construction foreman. He quoted his company as being the #1 company on Angie's List, and asked if I knew that?, and told me how long he has been doing his job and how many sump pumps his company does per year. When I asked him for a quote of service he stated that a second person would have to come out to due that, which I questioned why because I called for an assessment and quote of service. He spat out numbers for cost per foot of work, but didn't want to seriously discuss the total cost of service. If you call

and

shows up for your assessment, good luck!

called me that Monday for a follow-up and the woman asked when I could reschedule my appointment. I explained that I wasn't sure why I needed to, because the salesman spent at least 30 minutes with me. She said that he cancelled the appointment, because my wife couldn't be present. I explained to her that he spent all this time with me, and never once mentioned my wife not being present as an issue. And I will admit that my wife was not present for most of the visit, but when he did meet her he didn't ask her to stay and was rude to her as well. He obviously lied about the appointment to his own company.

I had two providers out, including

. What
Charleston Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said made much more sense based on what we could see. Clearly, they were not trying to dupe us, as they gave suggestions and literally didn't make a dollar on the visit. I really appreciated the honesty. The other provider had a prescribed package approach in which they clearly wanted to sell their waterproofing system and their reasoning wasn't making sense. Definitely very happy with

and I will use them again.
