Recent Review: From the initial phone contact through the final end of the project we dealt with the business owner,  Mark Lucas, who was polite, punctual, and professional.  We had an established date, but due to our own health issue had to move the project to a different date.  Mark was so easy to work with and accommodate this change of date.  The work was done as outlined when we chose this company.  What could have been a messy, dusty process was actually kept in check due to the equipment used and the end-of-day clean up by the work staff.  The final work was completed and we had a few questions.  Mark came personally to inspect the project at it's end and answered all questions.  We never felt rushed or pushed.  Most of all, we have peace of mind knowing that the job was done right with a company that will stand behind its work in the years ahead; for us and whoever will buy our home in the future. We have now been through the spring-rains season and can gladly say, "Our basement is DRY!!" Thanks, Mark Lucas/Dry-Basement Waterproofing LLC!

Recent Review: The Stumpf Construction folks and their subcontractors did an absolutely outstanding job for us. When interviewing contractors and getting their ideas about how to resolve our problem, it became very clear to us that Chad Stumpf is truly an expert in determining how to fix drainage problems such as the one we were experiencing. He recommended, and his company installed, a new 4" thick $000 PSI driveway designed to take the flow of water away from our house. His company also waterproofed the garage floor/driveway joint and installed subsurface drainage tile under our driveway The water now flows --even in heavy rains--off our driveway and away from our house into a new small dry rock bed that Stumpf Construction installed after regrading an area to the side of our house. In addition to this work, and the re-coating of our garage floor, among other things, his company and subcontractors also installed paver stones in areas of our driveway which are prone to tree root growth, and in another area adjacent to our house, installed new downspouts, dug out and installed a new exit pipe for one downspout, removed the bottom row of siding on one section of our house, replaced it with a waterproof membrane and covered it with protective PVC board. We could not be more pleased with the quality of the design products and workmanship provided by Stumpf Construction and its subcontractors. We highly recommend this contractor to anyone who has basement water issues caused by drainage problems outside a house or building.

Recent Review: Dan Lynch is very easy to talk and very responsive to requests.  His workers were diligent, cleaned up after their work each day, and performed repairs that seemed to be impossible, but they were so meticulous that the repairs were perfect.   We had two horrible repair areas at windows that had leaked for years.   Time and time again we had people come in to find the leaks and fix them.  None of them ever stopped the leaks, but Dan and his workers found the two leaks, which proved to be improper installation when we built the house.  One leak was in a 14-foot span of windows, two stories high with 9 foot ceilings on both floors. The windows were surrounded and separated by very ornate wood trim that was painted white.  Once the leak was "actually" repaired, the leak being the above the window where the wall met the soffit, the repairs began.  50% of all of the wood trim on that wall had cracks opened up in wet seams, creating highly visible destruction by the water.  With the tiniest of tools, he very meticulously cleaned out all of the cracks, filled the spans of open breaks in the wood, painted the areas that were patched,  That window also had serious and ugly water damage to the sills which were also repaired. When he finished this project, it was impossible to tell any water damage had ever taken place; it was like new!! The second very serious leak was in the large front window.  This was another leak that numerous repair people told us they had patched . . . NOT!!!!  Dan Lynches men found the leak, which was caused by a missing piece of the window on the floor above, which was how the builder of our home caused 9 years of leaking in the big window below!!  Dan Lynch and his workers not only found the cause of the water damage, fixed the problem, and repaired the extensive water damage in the big window.  Since the water had leaked in from the floor above, the wall paper had fallen way from the wall around the large window.  The leak had created wood expansion and cracked paint on the window sill and on the mopboard at the floor below.  The span of wallpaper between the the sill and floor had fallen away from the wall.  At the top of the window was the worst damage that ran the entire length of the 10-foot window.  In beginning his repairs the painter poked into the wallboard above the window to remove the damaged area.  The wallboard came down and was so saturated that it had disintegrated into a soft, moldable clay!!  He cleaned away the area above the window, installed a piece of new wallboard, about 9-feet by 5 inches, did all of the plaster and patch netting work and careful sanding.  When that was pristine, he painted the area and when dry, he replaced the wallpaper.  No one would ever know there had been a leak.  The repairs that he did made were more art than a repair!!! There were numerous problems where simply painting over patched picture holes was not satisfactory because, although, I had all of the original paints, some had dried up.  With my folders of house construction information, I had all of the paint numbers for the house. When he went to have fresh paint made for those dried up, he found that they had changed the base for all of the paints.  The color was a perfect match to the walls, but looking at an angle, there was a different sheen to the original and new paint because of the base change to non-toxic.  A few rooms he had to paint in entirety.  He found that by a clever method of painting up to wall seams or deco wood, an area without a need for patching could be left unpainted by using corners, and other wall breaks as a method of making the paint job look perfect, without having to repaint the entire room.  Over all of the years we worked with contractors for building additions or making repairs in 5 different homes, I never found anyone to compare to Dan Lynch and his crew!!!  Besides the beautiful  repairs, Dan was a very patient and responsive man.  I would hire Dan Lynch again and highly recommend him to people needing help with their home.

Mark Lucas and his crew did a great job. I was surprised by how fast it went even with all of the materials being taken into the basement and back out by hand up the stairs. The job ended up taking 2 days. They left everything very clean and were very professional.
