Business Description: I provide honest, independent opinions regarding structural engineering to homeowners to help them figure out what they truly need to do instead of relying upon a contractor trying to land his next project. I have twenty-five years of experience and am registered in 23 states and have performed work all over the US, including work for NASA.
Recent Review: Gave the lowest estimate of 5-6 various companies to do very similar work. Was very knowledgeable, professional, and punctual. Price for work done and transferable lifetime warranty was phenomenal. Very impressed and grateful
Recent Review: Couldn't find where the water was coming from in my basement. Called Collins waterproofing, found the entire problem was caused by my needing a sump pump installed. They had the sump pump next day installed it and everything went well. No more water leaking in the basement. Couldn't ask for faster service at such a reasonable price.
Recent Review: Doug was great, on time, efficient and our basement is dry as a bone. I refer anyone I know that is in need of drainage/ waterproofing work to him. Most recently, he provided me with a copy of our 15 year warranty that I misplaced last year. We will use him again for any thing that we need.
When Danny Manly first came to my house for the quote I told him about a previous quote and how they told me of all this damage there was to the foundation. This was true, it was crumbling in several spots and there were several cracks When I requested a quote I asked for foundation repair and was some how roped into waterproofing the basement. I never received any foundation repairs. When I questioned this Danny Manley he told me don't worry that will last another 20 years or so. I met him at the house at least twice and was subjected to waiting while he finished his cell phone calls. After he hung up from one of the calls he actually told me he was talking to his lawyer about a workman's comp case and this guy was claiming all this pain and he was on 700 pills a month. He stated he just wanted to keep getting the drugs, no one could take 700 pills a month. How unprofessional. At another point during the quote he offered to pay for me to join Angie's list for a year if I put in a bad review on the company from a previous quote. I can assume that this is a normal thing for one company to pay for you to condemn another so as to keep them from getting the business. I am just overall unhappy with this job and there really isn't anyway to make it right. Danny knows the president at the company I worked for so I expected a completed job. I have a drainage pipe on the back side of my house that was covered up by piling a lot of dirt on it. Unfortunately the rain continues to wash it off. They did come out and cover with more dirt but it then just drains in front of the gate and I can't open that. He now suggest a new pipe from the house to the alley where all trash cans set. After being trampled on and rolled over that will in time present another problem. I am washing my hands of the company and I hope you leave this entire review for all to read. Just because his company may do a great job on one location does not mean it will happen every time.

BBill Campbell Waterproofing
They only worked a few hours per day. Job could have been done sooner if they would have worked a full day. Very dirty job. Lots of dust everywhere. Left back door wide open for most of the time while they took cement and old walls from basement and then brought in rocks and cement. Killed flies everyday. Dust was horrible. Totally unprepared for such a mess. Need a professional cleaning crew to clean up dust and dirt.

Their quoted price was around $2,000. They were on-time and gave me options but they did not exactly offer the kind of fix we were looking for.

Dug a trench around the basement perimeter directing water to a sump pump they installed. Removed the trench dirt from the basement bucket by bucket and hauled it off in a truck. They placed plastic on the tiled floor to protect it. Ensured everything was covered and sealed all the down to the floor with plastic to protect from the dust of the jack hammer. Repaired any wall cracks, sealed them, installed thin sheets of plastic over that to ensure that any water that might still get through got directed into the drain trench. Replaced outside window wells and directed water from them and the interior sump to a underground drainage pipe they installed. These guys worked their butts off! They wanted to make the customer has happy, and they did. The basement was left as spotless as they could before they left. We are very pleased with our dry basement. After an extremely wet spring, we haven't seen one bit of water since! Excellent company!

Sohan & Sons were very professional from the start. They sent a representative who explained the exact nature that was causing the leakages and how he would fix it

The service went very well. It was an in depth project. Their estimate was the best out of the other companies I looked in to. They are a local company and made their estimate very clear. The basement is lined with lime stone walls and they were able to make the basement livable. A crew 6-8 came out and completed the job in 10 days. They were very respectful and cleaned up after themselves every day. They were very professional and punctual. They always showed up when they said they would.

ACincinnati Basement Waterproofing & Drainage
Cincinnati Basement Waterproofing came out and removed all the soil away from the foundation, laid tile below the footers, waterproofed the walls and put a plastic seal. They also connected all the downspouts to the tiles and put in a battery-backup sump pump. The men on the job worked hard and the job was finished quickly. Over the weekend with over 1 1/2 inches of rain the basement stayed dry. Good job.
