Recent Review: I was actually waiting to write a review after the first rain storm! Well it rained and FINALLY my basement is dry!!! I met with numerous companies to express my concerns with our damp and moldy basement. Affordable was very knowledgeable helpful and informative! After meeting with different companies I felt the most confident with affordable waterproofing. We have been anticipating redoing our basement but the dampness has always been an issue. The work was completed in a timely manner. The crew was very clean and professional. We are finally ready to move forward in completing a renovation to our basement... Now that it is dry! Thank you Affordable:)

Recent Review: Previous piering companies had tried and failed to solve our sinking foundation problem with undersized piers. After researching available options and getting quotes from a few companies, we chose Expert House Movers to excavate around our foundation, install custom made piers to support the weight of our house (full masonry, stone foundation, slate roof and terazzo floos) and spray a rubberized coating on the below ground portion of our foundation to stop future water penetrations in our stone foundation. They showed up promptly, performed the necessary work in a timely matter and were careful of the landscaping we wanted to keep. The job itself took longer than anticipated mostly due to additional work needed once the foundation was exposed (tuckpointing, new window wells, etc). There was minor damage to the sprinkler system and the water service line, but we were compensated for the damage by EHM. My only complaint was the amount of old drainage pipes and broken concrete that was left on site during the work and not removed until the end of the job.

Recent Review: They overcharged. They took advantage of the situation. The water was running back down into the basement and it was raining. It was a really rainy spring and my basement was flooding and that was the whole point of getting the basement waterproofed. So they overcharged.

Recent Review: Other then starting a couple days late, due to being behind schedule on another job (not surprising since we scheduled this task, as I recall, about 4-5 months in advance) everything went beautifully. The arrived when they said they would and their entire crew was extremely professional, respectful and helpful, especially Dave, who is the foreman. Anytime any of us went into the basement to see how everything were progressing the crew would stop what they were doing and show us around and explain exactly what they were doing as well as what was left. As for the job itself, our basement has always been wet, and actually had water tricking in it from between the steps in the stairs under the bilco doors.(we live near Lake Erie and with the water table so high there we figured nothing could be done about it, but boy were we ever wrong, since they were finished the basement has been perfectly dry and much brighter (the wall panels they use are white, which really brightens up the space.) We've had some major rains since it's been done and we don't have a drop of water anywhere anymore. Simply put, the job consisted of digging around the entire interior perimeter of the basement, putting in drainage, a new sump pump system with drains to the outside and away from the house, and then putting down fresh concrete over the drainage system and old sump pump hole. In addition they wired in a new power circuit just for the pump ,so something else in the house tripping a breaker wont kill power to the pump. It sounds simple, but it was a lot of hard, heavy and wet work and of course there was far more to it then I can describe. My wife and I both expect this would make the basement dryer, but neither of us expected it to work so well. We would have been happy had it simply been dry enough that we could store things down there without them ending up covered in mold, but instead we got a basement that not only can be used for storage, but is even dry enough to use as living space. In you live in Chautauqua County and have a wet/damp basement don't even think about it, call Shaun today and get him out to your place as soon as humanly possible. You wont be sorry, and you won't believe how huge a difference it will make (Shaun told us we wouldn't believe it, but we figured it was hype, but boy were we wrong,  he was absolutely right.) This is one of those rare occasions where the my only complaint is that we didn't do this years ago immediately after we bought the house!

The owner said whatever it took to convince us to hire him even if it was not true.  For example, he said that he would fill in the cracks in the floor with cement but he did not.  He said that we would no longer need a dehumidifier after completion of the work.  I still need to use a dehumidifier.  He said that he would come to the home on the first day of work and on the last day to make sure all was going well and completed correctly.  The only time he came to the home was to have the contract signed when he inspected the basement and gave an estimate.  On the estimate/contract, he deliberately did not detail any of the work to be done.  He instead listed ALL the material and the prices for the material.  He took advantage of our ignorance to do whatever he wanted to do.  He said that the basement would be considered "a finished basement" after completion of his work.  It is NOT considered a finished basement.  He gave us no instructions or information regarding a warranty.  He said that the basement would be cleaned after completion.  It was not cleaned.  The dust from drilling and cutting the fiberglass walls came through the vents and made us ill. There was property damage caused by his dump truck.  MOST IMPORTANT, HE WAS PAID to take the discharge line out to the curb.  He showed intent to do this by contacting and having the utility companies mark the water and gas lines on our property.  HE DID NOT COMPLETE THE JOB!  Instead, he left the discharge line 2 feet from the foundation!  When it rained, the water ran back into the basement where it continually recycled and the yard flooded.  We spent the following 3 months trying to get him to finish the job.  He told us to take him to court if we did not like it or pay him more money.  Since he DELIBERATELY DID NOT PUT ANYTHING OF IMPORTANCE IN WRITING, we had no recourse after contacting several lawyers and the police.  So, we hired a plumber to complete the job costing an additional $2,000.00!
