Washington Waterproofing Contractors Reviews

"We had found that a previous contractor who finished our basement did not satisfy the "waterproofing" portion of his contract. Water had clearly been coming in through the walls for quite some time. We had three contractors bid for the job. The guy at
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us the hard sell and insisted on being the last to see the job, which I thought was odd, but agreed to. The first two contractors bid approximately $5-6K for the job, which blew our mind. Two walls were to be waterproofed, along with a floor drainage system. Totaling 18 feet. BT bid $2900 for the job and actually seemed the least sales-y, so they got the job. (One guy from another company actually said to me, "Hey, its only money, right?" And then laughed.) Their earliest availability was in five days, which was fine. Three guys came and did the job and were done in five hours, which was fantastic. They were courteous and professional. They promised that I would never need to contact them again, which I love."

"After researching multiple companies on Angieslist we selected three for quotes. I will not review the other two companies because they did not provide us services. I will say that one company representative provided us with a sales pitch reminiscent of someone trying to sell insurance. He wanted to sell me products that were extraneous and made his quote $1000 above the other two plus he was over an hour late. Zeke from All Aspect was excellent and would probably have felt just as happy to go with them. After receiving all three proposals we went with

because of the Angieslist deal they had going on in addition to all the positive reviews.

showed up on time and provided us with a no nonsense proposal of work. He showed us photos from previous job sites and provided options for completing the job efficiently while maintaining the integrity of the finished basement. He answered all of our questions and ameliorated a number of concerns regarding future drainage issues. He was even able to schedule the work within our time frame. This was important because my wife was pregnant, it was during the holidays, and I needed time to refinish the basement once the job was complete.

's crew arrived promptly at 0830 and began work immediately.
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the foreman of a three person crew. By the time I greeted him and made coffee his crew was nearly done with demolition. Since this was a finished basement they took care to cut the drywall at exactly four feet from the floor in order for me to install new 4'x8' sheets without making extraneous cuts or buying excess materials, in turn saving me money.
The basement Technology crew moved efficiently and worked together to get the job done. The only minor issue I had was that I had to ask them to cover my furniture and seal the vents which they did not do before starting work. Again this was a minor issue because as soon as I mentioned it they took care of it quickly. While completing the job
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
asked me where I wanted the drain off from the sub-pump to be sent. After discussing with him possible solutions we went with one that was cosmetically better for me, but more costly for him. Without hesitation he accepted this solution which required drilling through my exterior wall and a retaining wall to properly disguise the new drainage system. He was able to drill a hole into the retaining that looked uniform with the ones already there. Did I mention he did not charge me extra for this added work?

stopped by midday to check on the progress. He assured me the work would get completed in a day and left without issue.
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided a service that went above and beyond the quote they provided. They took the time to explain the process and worked with me to find a better solution. At the end of the day they provided me with a dry basement that I was able to refinish with minimal supplies, time and effort. Since there installation we have had a very wet winter and I have had a dry basement. The musty smell is gone and we are extremely happy with there work. I would highly recommend

for any future basement water issues.

"We had a leak in our basement that we thought was from water seepage after heavy snow and rain. Zeeker came out for a free consultation and was punctual, friendly and unbelievably helpful. While the water seepage was not from the floor (but from the HVAC condensation pump), he pointed out some easy ways we could improve some cracks he noticed in our floor. Overall he was knowledgable and super helpful. Hopefully, we won't need any basement water proofing soon, but if we do I'll definitely use

, a regional manager for

came to my home to judge the work needed to prevent water seepage into my basement during heavy rains and to provide a price bid.
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only firm of the three which I consulted that was willing to recommend an incremental approach, by which I mean they offered a contract that would do the minimum they thought was needed and which offered additional work at fixed hourly rates to be performed only if found to be needed because additional damage was discovered or if subsequent rains produced seepage that required additional steps. The approach we decided upon was to work on the outside wall first, and reseal it, to keep water out in the first place and to only dig an inside trench if resealing the outside wall did not end all leakage. Mr
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
also reated some visible mold for free while he was doing the estimate and advised that if the outside resealing worked, the inside would dry out over time, possibly avoiding the need for expensive mold abatement and removal of inside plaster and wood framing. In addition h advised 99% of all mold is harmless, so it pays to proceed incrementally on this aspect of the work as well. If inside work was needed after the outside wall was sealed (with n outside pump to remove the water collected in a french drain), he recommended only a short (10 foot trench) to an already installed inside sump pump--not the extensive inside drains recommended by his competitors. His actual bid was 50% below the bid of the secdond lowest firm and 75% below the bid of the highest firm. The contract was flexible, specifying the initial work to be done for a fixed price and a per square foot add on for additonal outside wall work if the outside wall had more extensive damage than originally thought, and a second add on per foot of any addition inside trench required if the outside work did not end all seepage. The icing on the cake was a 25 year guarantee of no water leakage which was the longest warranty offered by any of the three firms. I will be happy to writ an addendum

"meAfter getting an initial bid
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
called me back since I did not sign a contract immediately without consulting other bidders. they said the chief engineer wanted to talk to me, review the estimate and see if he could lower the cost.. I agreed to talkj with him even though I had not yet gotten a second or third estimate. The inspector came early and told my wife the basement smelled musty implying immediate work needed to be done. He lowered the first estimate from $16,000 to $13,000 for digging to the footers and rsealing the outside of my east basement wall facing into a steep downward sloping hill and would provide free inside trenching of about 45 feet if I signed an immediate contract. The lower price was only available that evening because he had crews on a government contract that was winding down the next two weeks and he wanted to utilize them full time with "home" projects. He implied only his firm could do the work properly and only their guarantee was worth anything because many of the other firms reincorporate after several years under new names voiding their warranties.( Actually this latter point was useful information because most inside trenches that are not done properly clog after 7-8 years, a firm needs to be in business 8 or more years without reincorporating to assure that their work is good enough to honor the warranty on most inside work.) I explained i never sign a contract until I get three bids and would not sign that evening. I asked him why most of the reviews of his firm under Google were negative and he said it was really the same individual who had a bad experience with the firm who was out to get them. After he left I read the recent consumer checkbook article on waterproofing a basement or garage, and was surprised to learn that
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
frequently calls people back who do not sign immediate contracts and sends a" senior official" who
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
the price. And they often seem to have crews available from government contracts who they need to keep busy over the next few weeks as the reason for the discount; in my case they were working on Metro, in the Checkbook article they were working on a different government project. While in my home ,he also recommended that beyond the outside wall work i actually needed to dig an inside trench around th other three inside walls of my basement--not just the included 45 feet but closer to 90 feet. The Checkbook article said this firm has a history of recommending extensive additional and often unneeded extra work from which they offer a discount and the discounts actually increase the longer you don't sign a contract with them. I resent this kind of high pressure tactic, the provision of misleading information if not outright
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and I would not recommend asking this firm for a bid on any project. I am surprised ANgie's list gives them even a B rating; although on Angie's list, 20% of their reviews are negative even if the majority are positive. However as checkbook points out it is hard to be dissatisfied if you are doing unnecessarily expensive extra work to fix your basement and it actually fixes it. Still not a consumer friendly way of doing business and the firm makes a huge profit on what you could have gotten for a lot less.

"The firm was professional and I felt analyzed the issue correctly. unfortunately their price was over four times the price of the bidder i eventually chose, a firm that was also A rated by Angie's list. The bid I took may ultimately be higher than the contract I signed because their were contingencies in it if additional work was needed to complete the work that was unknown at the time of the bid. but even so the final price should still be well under 50% of
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's bid. Part of the excessive price results from extensive inside the basement trenching that may or may not be necessary after the outside excavation is completed. The firm I went with not only had a much lower price for the outside work 6K vs 16K, but also recommended working incrementally to see if the outside work solved the problem before recommending extensive inside work. It is always better to not let water into the basement in the first place than to pump it out afterwards.

"After years of water entering my basement, I reached out to an Angie's list provider, who proceeded to dig down to the footer of the house on the outside in an attemp to prevent water from entering the basement. I spent $2, 500. to get the job done on two corners of my outside wall, one side was successful, and no water came in, but the second side got worst and more water came into the basement after the work was done. The company who did the work, did the best they could and returned several times, trying to fix the problem without success. I was at the end of my rope, and performed several water test myself, trying to figure out where the water was coming from. There was no resolve to the problem, and that is when All Aspect Waterproofing saved the day. I am

"Was not impressed. I contacted the company to have someone come out and provide me an estimate for waterproofing my basement/repairing my wall from recent water leaking into the basement. The whole point was that water was coming in - it's usually helpful to be able to show someone while the area is wet so there is no ambiguity. They were unable to send anyone to assess the situation until such time as the weather was suitable (read: sunny) and that they would have to cancel for inclement weather. Heh? That defeats the point! Took them 3-4 days to get someone out. When he did come, he was insistent the flooding must have come from a drain outside of the door despite me indicating no less than 4-5 times that was not the case. (He clearly wasn't listening.) Ultimately, he determined that he had no idea what the issue was - or what to fix. (Mind you, this was 1 of 4 estimates I was getting for the work. And, this was the only one that couldn't come up with some kind of recommendation or proposal.) After the fact, I got a call from the company indicating that they could not complete the work because I had a leak in my roof which caused the issue (heh?!). I can only hope that they confused me with someone else.. because my roof was no part of the discussion, and in a 3 story house.. that was not the source of water coming in under a basement footboard.

and his team are nothing short of fantastic! I cannot commend them and rave about them enough! I have used them now on two separate occasions. The first, in October, I had water leaking at into my basement at the back of my house (due to a very significant storm).
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and evaluated the work, walked me through all of the details. It was not at all apparent what the source of the water leak might be - until they dug up the site. But,
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
completely put me at ease that once they underook the work, certain contingencies would be included within the scope of work - to assure that all issues would be addressed. It took a couple of weeks to get the project scheduled.
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
(the lead foreman) and his team descended, jackhammered my back patio, dug a trench, identified some obvious points whereby bricks were missing (or loose), and where mortar was missing. The work was completed within a day with a team of approximately 5 people. They were incredibly neat - and cleaned up the entire area upon completion.
But, why I am eternally grateful to
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team... More recently, in December, I had some more significant flooding on the side of my house (due to my neighbor's contractor's faulty work).
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out within a day of my call to come and take a look at the project. It was not entirely apparent what could be the source/cause of the water. I was a bit overwhelmed and exasperated - with numerous contractors coming through to mitigate all of the damage.
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to get me scheduled within two days - in advance of another storm. He is the nicest, kindest, most professional, courteous, all around wonderful contractor! (And, his prices for his scope of work are definitely less than other contractors. But, more than anything, I trust his judgement, his recommendations, and have full faith in the quality of his work.)
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's team came out to dig an 8 foot trench and waterproofed the side of my house from the exterior. While they were there, I asked if they could check my neighbor's recent downspout installation (which was installed underground). They did - and were quickly able to determine the source of my leak. Without any hesitation or question (before I even knew the result of what they found),
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the team fixed the piping,
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
hammered cement, and laid new piping for my neighbor's project (which was the source of my water damage). I cannot begin to express my gratitude for
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
,
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and their team. They are second to none - and always do what's right to take care of the issue. They stand behind their work, and are so incredibly skilled. It is not always obvious where water can get into a basement, but,
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's judgement is incredibly sound. And,
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
will take all of the time necessary to explain and walk through the process - and outlines all of the details in the scope of the contract, but certainly adjusts accordingly once the project begins. I could not be more grateful for the quick response and help on this occasion! I would have thrown any amount of money at the project to mitigate the water damage. But, based on my initial experience, knowing how incredible
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team are, I would have waited weeks for them to undertake this second project - based on the quality of their work!
I would have no reservations recommending
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team to anyone. They are incredible, reasonably priced (cheaper than competitors), very experienced, skilled, professional, and kind. In my estimation,
Washington Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
treats you more like family - knowing you are in great hands, and that you can trust their judgement and recommendations. He is the most honest, all around wonderful contractor! I would certainly use them for every project if they did more than waterproofing. But, in the case of water issues, they will be the first one that I call!
