The house was built in 1960, so it has had a lot time to build problems. Since adding rain gutters and downspouts water had accumulated next to the foundation of the house. This apparently led to the moisture infiltration and mold build up. The mold is now gone and the crew gave me guidance on avoiding this in the future. Water from the downspouts has been redirected away from the base of the house and Mold and Mildew Solutions is set to provide an annual inspection to be sure that it does not return. This alone makes me feel better. The encapsulation makes going into the crawl space much easier and a chore that I no longer have to avoid. The crew that did the work were very professional and answered all questions as they came up. Now that the job is done, I am happy to have it behind me, but I am also very happy with the work that was done.

Mike arrived at our home and was not clear on what exactly was needed to be done to correct our flooding crawl space. I later had to call to inquire about having not received the written estimate. Mike did mail the estimate and in reviewing the suggested service to correct out issues I did not see anywhere he noted the drains in the crawl space cemented flooring. I took pictures and sent back to him to review and he admitted he did not notice or recall the drains.

I have to say my experience with Exterior Waterproofing made a believer in Angie's List out of me. Exterior Waterproofing, owner Phillip Madden, provided me with everything you hope for in home repair but so seldom receive. The service was courteous, professional, prompt and timely. I was told exactly what would be done, when it would be done and exactly what the estimated cost would be and it HAPPENED! Phillip's price was extremely reasonable for what was done. The work was beautifully done. Exterior Waterproofing not only met but exceeded my expectations, a trite business model that is rarely ever achieved. Kudos to the Exterior Waterproofing team. They have my whole hearted endorsement. Margaret Harrill

Phillip is professional and very knowledgeable on what specific waterproofing is required while not trying to pressure you into a more expensive project. He does a great job educating on how the water is coming into your crawlspace (or at least in my case it was a crawl space job), and he provides a set of solutions to help remedy the situation on a tier basis. Both he and the crew provide helpful videos pre-, during, and post-installation. Recently (as the project was completed months ago), my sump pump began making strange noises that you could feel through the floorboards, and I sent a message to Phillip that evening in an attempt to determine if this was a serious issue. He was quick to respond and informed me a crew would be out to take a look the house the next day (this was on a Saturday). At the end of the weekend I wrote him back to check on the prognosis, and I learned they had already replaced the pump as it was under warranty. Not just a sell and never see again businessman...I can appreciate that.

Waterproofed a crawl space in the basement that frequently leaked during heavy rain storms. It's been two months since they performed the service and so far so good. Would definitely recommend to others.

Phillip worked on our crawl space prior to selling our house. He worked within our budget to fix our crawl space water problem. He went above and beyond with answering questions and updated us with pictures throughout the process. He even answered questions that our buyer had. We highly recommend Exterior Waterproofing.

Absolutely loved working with this company. Wayne was so professional and knowledgeable. I was treated more than fair and plan to use them in the future for any other issues. We live in an old house with a crawl space and he gave me tips for the future to prevent moisture issues.

Steven did a great job - the door is sturdy and he added flashing to prevent water damage. I would highly recommend him will try to get his help for any future projects!

I had three other providers provide estimates, but Phillip was the most professional, responsive, and efficient person. He came up with a cost-effective way of addressing the mold issues in the crawlspace. Phillip kept me informed throughout the process with pictures and videos. I am trying to sell this house so this has been a stressful situation, but Phillip made a big difference.

Recent Review: A few months ago I noticed a musty smell coming from my crawl space and was not sure what was going on. I did some research on the internet and decided that I might have a water issue in my crawl space. I then used the internet to find a few companies to come out for an inspection. After making several calls, I was able to get two estimates. One company came out and looked in my crawl space for a few minutes and then told me what the problem was and gave me an est. of about how much it would be to fix. He told me he would mail a quote to me within a few days. Three days later AFS showed up to inspect my crawl space. The tech took right at an hour crawling my entire crawl space ( which is full of insects and is gross ) and took 20 plus pictures so I could see what the inspector saw. Needless to say, there was no way I was ever going into the crawl space so I appreciated being able to see the condition of the crawl space rather than just trusting what the other company told me. After reviewing with me what was causing the musty smells, the tech had a nice presentation that showed me exactly what needed to be done to get it fixed. I know little about crawl spaces other than the fact that they are nasty, but after the presentation I felt pretty confident about the water issues in my crawl space as well as the solution. To make a long story short, I decided to have AFS fix the water issue I was having as well as encapsulate my crawl space. Two things made me decide to chose AFS. 1) The tech was very professional and did not talk down to me just because I am a female who knows nothing about crawl spaces and 2) They provided almost five pages of customers in my area that had similar work done and I knew several of the people on the list. That being said, I felt comfortable having AFS fix the water issue. A few days after I scheduled to have the work done, I received the quote from the first company and could not figure out what they were proposing and was very confused. I did not bother having them come back out because as a working mother, I simply don't have time to waste going back and forth a million times trying to sort out how they were going to fix my crawl space. I appreciate how AFS treated me from the initial phone call all the way down to having the work done.
