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: To be honest, I don't see how it could have gone better. The crew was there on time, worked diligently and respectfully, and was totally professional. The team took pictures for me as the work progressed also.

Recent Review: Water was collecting in a crawl space below my house and during heavy storms it was probably going to leak into the basement. The humidity from all that water was also creating a stinky basement. I contacted Aaron and he came out the same day I called to assess the situation. He agreed that a French drain was the best solution, and provided an estimate that was reasonable and on Sept 15 he and his team arrived promptly. They went right to work for the next 7 hours or so and it was clear from their talk among themselves that this was a team who worked together often and got along very well. Digging this drain required removal of a concrete layer and lots of dirt but they took a lot of care to avoid tracking it all through the house, hauling the debris out through a basement window with buckets. They seemed to understand this was not just a job but it was someone's home. At the end of the day everything was cleaned up so it was hard to tell that all these people had been there and hauled away a trailer's load of debris. They were cheerful and friendly and seemed very proud of their work. I am glad I had the installation done and even happier that I chose Aaron and his team to do it. Now I won't have to worry about rain and snow in the basement.
Recent Review: Nick from Scaldino Basements was very professional and prompt. He had no problems walking me through the entire scope of the project. His workers were very prompt, courteous and clean. He and his guys went above and beyond my expectations. Will gladly do business with him again if needed.

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: 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.
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.

We had been living in our house for 5 years and although the kitchen was a new addition, every winter my wife & I had noticed how noticeably the temperature differentiated especially after the winter of 2014/15. And because it was a dirt floor with some wood and old construction debris strewn about. I was not so keen on staying down there. In doing my own investigation there was some piping and insulation under floor. So when investigating estimates we called a number of "green" companies. Out of the three companies that came, only Frank Petrullo with Eco Green Solutions, noticed the mold and a water leak coming from fridge line. He took the time to show me where the water was coming, how mold had proliferated on the wood floor joists and beams. The dirt floor was somewhat moist and light was visible from outside along foundation rim contributing to the mold and moisture in crawl space. He explained each of our options and detailed the steps in sections of each estimate. We opted to have a plumber fix the water leak, then franks crew came in, cleaned up the mold, then layed down the crawl space membrane, finally insulating floor & rim joist. All in under two days. The crew showed up on time, left the open sections of the house clean, and we immediately noticed a difference in kitchen and rest of house. Walking around bare foot in kitchen is more comfortable, the kitchen is less noisy, and house humidity is maintained.

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.

Pat and his team were incredibly thorough and professional. He arrived at our house on time to provide us with a prompt and thorough estimate for the work we needed after severe basement flooding from Hurricane Sandy, answering all of our questions and giving appropriate, helpful information with a manner that showed both expertise and great customer service. We never felt pushed to agree to more than we wanted, and Pat had no problem talking to us about a range of options. Once we decided to use Leinster, Pat was able to schedule the work quickly. He and his crew showed up right on time and conducted a walk through with us to insure everyone understood the work to be done. All paperwork was provided in good order with the details we'd discussed during the estimate properly recorded. Some of the basement was still partially covered with an old tin ceiling and partition walls that didn't show 100% of the asbestos insulation or damage, but no surprises came up during the removal and a bit extra pipe insulation that was under the ceiling was taken care of as part of the job's scope. The areas were well sealed and work was done quickly, efficiently and surprisingly quietly, though there was a lot to be removed. Pat kept us updated as work progressed and had us check the areas when appropriate/safe. The whole job was completed within about 6 hours. We are incredibly happy to have found such a professional, scrupulous and courteous contractor who did the great job he promised, and provided us with the relief of a clean, safe basement.

We used them and they were great. I did not like how it looked, but they came back and fixed it. It does not smell any more so that is good. They came out fast to fix it.

It went very well. They first removed all water from crawl space (there was about 4 inches of water). They encapsulated the entire crawl space and put in two sump pumps and a dehumidifier. . To date our crawl space remains dry and we are very satisfied. They did the work in a fast andprofessional manner

As we were performing our final walk through of our new home we noticed a strong musty odor. The original home inspection called out some potential mold and moisture issues. The Seller at the time provided me with documents of a recent mold remediation and encapsulation as proof the problem was taken care of. When the original remediation company would not return to honor their work I was recommended to Victor From GreenWorks. He took his time to sit down with me and explain that the original remediation was inadequate due to the fact that no steps were taken to address the moisture and the mold was growing back through the encapsulation.. Victor provided me with a coast effective solution to address the moisture and mold. GreenWorks even referred me to a large franchise in the area to get a second opinion and proposal. The level of expertise and quality of service where unmatched. GreenWorks even came back to check on our system to make sure everything was in working order and there was not any additional mold in the crawl. Highly Recommended!

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.
