Recent Review: We were very happy with the way this all worked out. We have 1100 square feet of basement that needed to be gutted down to cinderblock and waterproofed. The workers showed up every day on time, worked extremely hard, and very efficiently. They kept a very clean work site and did their best to protect our lawn and backyard by putting down boards and mats, etc. They were just very polite, hard working, neat and conscientious. They discussed everything they were doing and answered any of our questions and requests. We are very pleased.
Recent Review: Starting with the sales rep, Jeff ending with the foreman Lou along with staff. American A-1 was honest, on time and efficient! On the initial survey, Jeff took about an hour to survey my basement and accommodated my late work schedule to perform the survey. His attentiveness and patience deserves recognition alone! Now for the job, all employees who were on site were courteous, clean and honest! The foreman on site accidentally pinched the water-main when breaking ground. He noticed it and quickly notified me. The company proactively reached out to a plumber, who coordinated the job with my local water provider and fixed the mistake immediately! This alone, made me feel like i made the right choice with American A-1. Had some very bad rainfall recently, and my basement was bone dry! I highly recommend this company. Thanks to all who were involved!
Recent Review: These guys were awesome. Had twelve guys in our basement who worked quickly and cleanly. Each one knew their job and together, they were a machine. What would have taken me months by myself, was knocked out in two days. They were actually so good - that they stopped the rain! That's the reason for my delayed review. Just wanted to be sure that this wasn't too good to be true! So with yesterday and today's rain, we've got two sump pumps working smoothly and a dry basement. Good thing. Flooring comes next week! Jason, Dillon, Tommy - well done!
Recent Review: It went extremely well. They were very, very nice. They did a good job and cleaned everything up. They came on time. We were very pleased. They were very polite. They were experienced. The owner of the company is ill so he has people do the assessments for him. We used them 10 years ago for basement waterproofing. We were very pleased with the owner of the company because he showed up and did the work. We were a little disappointed this time when there was a little glitch because we called the owner and he couldn't come out because he was in the hospital. He was very nice and we certainly understood that. The man that did the assessment was younger and didn’t have the experience. He recommended an easy breeze system that cost just under $1,500. It was supposed to do the work of 7 humidifiers and we noticed that the basement was getting moldier and moldier. We found out that this system works in conjunction with air conditioning and we don't have central air conditioning. The guy who did the assessment was a really nice guy and it used to be a very good company but we think they have to straighten a few things out to come back up to speed. That day they brought back the check and took out the system so when there was a problem they took care of it very well. We would use them again because there is a possibility that we will need drains alongside of the house and that part of the job went extremely well. They fixed the problem and they responded very quickly. We didn’t ask for the check back and they hadn’t even cashed it and it was over a week.
Recent Review: Aaron Graf is an expert at waterproofing basements and he did an excellent job on ours. Our basement had always (over 30 years) flooded during big storms, but now it is dry! He was very clear in explaining his plans, very punctual and professional in executing them, and very reasonable in his pricing—no surprises. We highly recommend him.
Eddie was amazing! All contractors should behave as professionally as he did. He was honest and refused to sell us anything because he said our situation did not warrant the kind of solutions that cost extensive amounts of money. He gave us simple, inexpensive solutions. I was so impressed with his knowledge. On another note, as a woman I am not surprised when contractors only speak to the men. I am a woman who takes an active role in "typical" male scenarios. He spoke directly to both my husband and me and couldn't have been more professional, kind and informative. I only wish I had work to give him! However, if and when I do, I would not hesitate to call him in an instant.

We had been happy with the service before and decided to call United again. They were very prompt in coming to give us an estimate and set a date for the work to be done. The man who came to assess was friendly and explained everything and came up with a solution to our problems with water in the basement that sounded great. When the date came and the workers started to drill, cement started to fall from the ceiling in the basement. They immediately stopped work. It turned out the there was a portion of the basement ceiling that was not stable. They cleaned everything up, and the owner, Giovanni, got involved right away. He came personally to look at the house, and proposed a slightly different solution which was a little more complicated as the situation was a little different than had been originally assessed. We were very happy with the result and the new work was super promptly done, Giovanni came to oversee it all himself, and it seems great so far (we are waiting for a very heavy rainfall to truly see how it goes, but it looks perfect. It just hasn't been fully tested yet :)) What struck me most of all was the sincere care from Giovanni and the fact that he stood by the original estimate, when the work that was actually done was more complicated and likely cost more for them to complete.

AACM Basement Waterproofing
Mark and his team are awesome! From beginning to end, Mark was very responsive, informative and passionate about helping. His team was extremely professional, friendly and very clean. They replaced a poorly installed sump pump, installed a back up pump, connect a back up battery to both, replaced the French drain, built in a couple trenches and installed a membrane on the walls to control seepage. The work looks great! The only thing they could have done a little better was to explain the plan upfront so we could agree on the location/design of the installation. Overall, it was a great experience though, and I would definitely recommend ACM to others!

I had a long standing water problem in my basement. After evaluating the situation I was pleased to find out that I didnt need to do the whole basement. They were able to pinpoint the problem to the front of my house. The problem was resolved in just one day and it only cost me 1800 dollars. I appreciate the honesty and of course the savings. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

After the contractor applied the waterproofing there were no further leaks whatsoever. The process is not dirty as tearing up the basement and installing a french drain and installing a sump pump. Very clean job.
