Recent Review: The company was professional from the time I called them thru the whole process. They followed up with me after the job was finished to make sure I was happy with the work that was done.
Recent Review: A week after I signed the contract, the United Waterproofing crew came and removed the old pump, dug up and enlarged the pit, installed a new pump and a battery back-up pump, and redirected the discharge line. The crew was professional, courteous, and completed the job in a timely manner and cleaned up the crawl space after. The pumps have been working flawlessly ever since -- a big relief given that weather has been fairly on the wet side. United Waterproofing did an outstanding job and the price was reasonable (actually a few hundred dollars cheaper than another quote from a much larger, well-known company). I would definitely hire UW again.
Recent Review: Everyone on the crew was extremely nice and they all knew what jobs they had to complete. They worked as a team and did quality work. The attic was very hot without insulation and they worked hard up there. I am pleased with the job they did and believe they are very honest people. The only minor issue I had was during the initial estimate. There were some inconsistencies that came up with what I knew to be necessary components of the job, but these were all cleared up when I spoke to the manager, Shawn. Shawn did a great job explaining every step of the process and what I was paying for, he assured me of the quality of the workmanship, and made sure I was pleased throughout the process. The entrance to my crawlspace is a bit tricky and there was a minor accident to a water pipe and Shawn and his team came right over to diagnose the problem, they gave me really good plumbing advice and found a solution to the issue. They are really honest people and want to make sure their customers are pleased with their work. I would not hesitate to refer them, they are fast and efficient and care about their customers. I cannot say enough about how Shawn manages his team, he is very pleasant.

Business Description: We have a full division of technicians who are dedicated to superior crawl space encapsulation and who professionally install dehumidifiers that will provide you with a bright, dry and usable crawl space. We know firsthand the trauma a home owner goes through when a basement is flooded or when they experience leaky walls created by heavy rain or a failed sump pump. Taking on water is even worse when it happens to a newly finished basement.
Recent Review: I had bought a deal for a foundation inspection to check on an area of moisture penetration in the basement. I also wanted to get his opinion concerning a crawl space encapsulation. Joe inspected the area inside the house and on the outside. He assured me that I do not have a mold problem, which by itself justified the expense. He explained to me how the problem had developed and proposed a simple fix. He was courteous and professional and did not push his services.
Recent Review: The servicemen arrived as scheduled. Both workers were very pleasant. They removed the old window without any problem. The installation took a few hours (~2-3) - as explained to me over the phone and expected. They were very neat about the fireproofing and sealing of the window. We won't be able to test this until the Winter months, but we can wait. :) They even tried to assist me in re-installing the home security device. Overall, a very good experience. The window looks great and appears to be able to withstand the harsh weather conditions of the Northeast.
Terrific from start to finish. Jimmy was very responsive and did a great job explaining what service was needed. The crew that did the work where friendly and very professional. Crawl space is now dry and looks great.

These guys cost a bit more, but I'm very happy with the quality of the products & the installation. We got a crawl space encapsulation & the "Triple Pump" sump pump. The crawl space is dry & clean. The sump pump is doing what it should. I think you get what you pay for, so its good to go with a company with their level of experience.

Joe and his team did a fantastic job. Joe was incredibly thorough and thoughtful throughout the whole process. At his first visit, he took precise measurements, and asked us to get someone out to scope our existing drains. He come out for that appointment as well, so he could really understand what was going on. After that he sent over a very thoughtful proposal for addressing the issues, which came in well below what we expected to pay. His team finished the whole job in 2 days, and were very considerate in keeping things clean throughout.

The company was very responsive and we had an appointment for an estimate with Mitch Weiss within a day. We were at the estimate-gathering phase of our project and had been told by another contractor (who had installed a replacement sump-pump in that crawl-space) that the space was in a condition that needed action soon (which they would provide for around $5000). Meeting Mitch was truly a pleasure, we discussed the crawl-space, its condition and what action we would need. He told us that he could sell us something but that he would not be able to sleep at night because our crawl space was in good condition and didn't need any waterproofing (the only thing we might want to think of at some stage might be replacing the current standard insulation mats with moisture-repelling ones). He talked us through what he saw and under which conditions action would be needed (should they ever occur). We were deeply impressed with this level of honesty. Despite not using Scaldino right now (as no action is needed), Mitch's honesty and professionalism has won us over and they will be the first ones we will call if we need a basement waterproofing job done.

Someone came out in October to look, made suggestions about how to fix the problem, but no one got back to me with an estimate. I sent a message recently, with no response.

They were very professional from the moment we made the call. I found them on google and picked them because they have so many great reviews. They were always quick to respond and punctual for the estimate appointment and service day. They waterproofed all of our crawlspace (1500 sq ft) and added 2 smart pumps and 2 landscape outlets, an air dehumifier, and they covered all around. We did have to provide the electrical outlets for the 2 sump pumps through separate services with other contractors. I have not had to call them for anything yet, but based on their responsiveness since day one I trust they would respond to any issue covered by their lifetime warranty. They were in our home from around 10am to 4pm. They protected the floors for all the equipment they would need to use and the men coming in and out of the house. Victor was one of the men working and communicating with me for any questions I had and he was very detailed and conciderate to let me know everything that was happening. Jeff was the person who was handling all of our appointment dates, estimates, and phone calls and he was also great to work with even tho we did not meet him. All the water and mud are gone, our crawl space now looks and smells great!

Like most shore houses post-Sandy, we needed to make some remediation of our crawl space. We did a lot of due diligence and sought several estimates. Even though Quality 1st Basement was a bit higher in overall cost, we decided to go with the adage, "You get what you pay for"; especially when you consider we are dealing with the foundation of the house and not some other arbitrary detail like crown molding or drywall. One service we sought an estimate from actually charged us $99.00 for an estimate, calling it a 'survey and review' and said we could apply that amount to the purchase price if we chose to use them. That particular service was unprofessional, gave us a handwritten estimate on a form letter and then told us we had mold and that it would cost $1300 to remove; meanwhile, the estimator only stuck his head in the crawl space, along with some instrument connected to his iPhone and made that diagnosis - altogether that was one big red flag. His estimate for calculating square footage of our crawl space was also much greater than what Mike from 1st Quality and another engineer had given us. It begged the question, how can you give an estimate for cleaning and removing mold if you haven't looked in the entire crawl space? Again, you get what you pay for! Mike J. from 1st Quality, along with Jose and his crew who did the work were professionals from start to finish and worked with us and our budget. I would recommend using 1st Quality even if their price is higher; ask them to itemize and price out all the options they offer, they will gladly work with you.

Buyer beware! Caused more issues/damage then helped. Over prices and doesn’t honor their work. Instead give an expensive quote of work that is not needed.

Well , overall. It was fair for the price paid. I just thought it was going to be a more complete encapsulation based on the picture shown on the Angie’s List advertising. Customer Service from Marty’s in Angie’s List and from Mr. Garcia was really good. I can see Mr. Garcia because at times he would take a while to get back to me. I wished he could come over once before the project was completed, just to go over the details. Again, I wish more work was done,but , for the price paid it’s a fair deal.

I received quotes from 4 companies. His was the lowest but I found him rated as A+ on the Better Bureau website and many of the others were B-. He was quick with his first visit to provide an estimate. It was clear and easy to read. He also provides a lifetime warranty which some companies only had a warrantee for you but the next owner would not get this. He worked on the job himself along with his team. He was pleasant and the team tried very hard to keep the house clean and cleaned up after their job. so far basement crawl space is perfect!
