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: Estimate for Basement Waterproofing: very honest person came to give estimate. It was a no pressure environment the only sticking point was that I was looking for someone to demo the basement and do the waterproofing. Arid was only comfortable doing the waterproofing they wanted me to do the demo. I found a waterproofing company that did the demo, waterproofing and sump with backup battery. The Arid sales associate did try to work with me and offer me a $500 discount to have someone come in and do the demo.
Recent Review: Hired Bob for the second time - and can’t say enough about his professionalism and quality of work. He fixed a job that was done poorly from another contractor and now my basement is completely dry. He also helped me solve a nagging problem with my gutter system that wasn’t properly drained when it was installed. I would definitely hire him again and he is my go to guy for anything dry basement or drainage related
Recent Review: There are 3 choices local homeowners have if they want to renovate their basement and avoid drywall downstairs, whether for concern of floods, humidity or mold. Allure offers an Owens Corning product which is not water proof, and after a flood will need to be replaced. Complete Basement Systems and Superwalls offer a rigid foam product that can sit in standing water and resist damage. I immediately removed Allure from the process since the product would still need replacement if any flooding ever does occur again. I received quotes from both other firms. First, why I didn't pick Complete Basement Systems. They insist that I sign a contract and send them a 1/3 deposit before they will commit to a start date. According to Nassau Office of Consumer Affairs a home improvement contract must have a start date and a completion date. When I asked the owners again to work with me to honestly insert such a date he refused. Superwalls came in around the same price point (although battery backup sump pump was new to them). The local installer reviewed the project and actually thought of a better layout than we initially designed. When they said they would start the following Thursday, sure enough they actually showed up! The project was done in one week, and the punch list was completed by the middle of the following week. Anything I asked to be adjusted or corrected was done. When I mentioned I was installing a TV or a closet system, they immediately placed added supports in the walls for me. What impressed me about the crew? Very nice guys and they made an effort to really clean up every day. The contractor even dropped off a bottle of wine to say thank you for the completed project. I have already had a neighbor, doing a traditional drywall basement, stop by to be chocked how quickly my project was finished (they are over a month already into their project). I am very satisfied with Matt, Steve and the entire team.
Recent Review: They were excellent. They were really professional and on time. I haven't had a leak since and I will definitely use them again. They were very good and I thought their prices were pretty reasonable. I didn't know what to compare their prices to but it was well worth the money.
Recent Review: 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.

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.

AE & M Waterproofing Inc
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.

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!

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.

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.
