Recent Review: The team at Basements Love Us was excellent! They were clear and upfront about exactly what work needed to be done, and we were confident they were giving us the best deal possible. They completed the work quickly and in line with our schedule. After a number of large rain storms, our basement has remained dry!

Recent Review: Sent someone out immediately to do estimate. Provided very fair price and scheduled us for waterproofing in no time at all. Completed work promptly and all staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. We have not had one drop of water in basement since work was completed and have endured major rains that normally would have given us basement water.

Recent Review: Long Story: We have a basement dampness problem. A contractor advised me to have the gutters and outside drainage looked into before looking at any interior solution (i.e., basement French drain and sump-pump). Subsequent to this Mr. Rick from Mid-Atlantic visited us (me and my wife, both senior citizens) at home on July 10, 2013 to give an estimate. I told him about the previous advice I had received. He told us the majority of the water in the basement was coming from ground water, not water being collected by the roof/drain system. He estimated an outside solution at about $45,000 (involving extensive digging) plus additional thousands to fix the disrupted landscaping, then quoted us an inside French-drain sump-pump solution at about $10,000. Then he told us that if we would leave the date of installation flexible (i.e., at their convenience) and signed on the spot, he could get us a very good price, $7910. I asked him repeatedly what about the outside drainage problem that was noted by the other contractor. He said not to worry; his solution would take care of it, regardless. I asked him repeatedly what if the sump pump never came on ? he guaranteed me it would. He said by signing we would be getting peace of mind. What swayed us most was his guarantee. Also he showed us letters from different people about how good a job they have done in the past, their patented technology, etc. One of the letters was from Ft. Belvoir in Maryland, where he claimed he had done the waterproofing on the soldiers barracks. I have been to Ft. Belvoir on business, and this made an impression on me. After a brief conference with my wife, we signed and paid Mr. Rick 1/3 of $7910. The actual installation took place July 22nd. The workmen arrived on time. They were very courteous and worked hard and installed the French drain covering the east and north section of the base of the basement walls as per plan. They tested it by pouring water into the sump pump well using a garden hose and confirming that the sump pump came on when the water level was a few inches above the top of the pump. Just as the crew were finishing we had a torrential downpour. We saw water dripping into the basement at two points, both located near respective downspouts on the outside of the house. The water was dripping over the inside of the basement wall and the sump pump water level remained unchanged through the entire torrential rainfall and the pump consequently did not come on. To protect their still wet concrete work the crew installed pails to catch the water (I have pictures of this). I took a video (available on request) starting at the outside front of the house: it shows water gushing out of two downspouts, apparently due to blockage downstream. The water is seen to be heading directly at the areas of the basement where the water was seen to be dripping in as viewed from inside the basement (the video covers both inside and outside). I called Mid-Atlantic waterproofing right then and talked to Sam, the boss of the crew (the crew chief was named John). Apparently Sam talked to John who told me that the warranty did not cover water coming in from the outside over the basement walls. John told me he felt bad for me because they did not want to leave us in a situation where their work had clearly not solved our problem. I paid him the balance of the $7910 due and wrote on the check that the problem was not solved. I had a talk with Mr. Rick on 7/27/13. I told him he had sold us an unneeded solution and that I believed the sump pump would never come on as long as I kept the drains clean. I asked him if it would be acceptable proof to Mid-Atlantic that the sump pump solution was incorrect if I installed, at my expense, a sump-pump usage meter (there are devices available that sense water rising in the sump-pump well and send a text message to a cell-phone). Mr. Rick evaded the question and insisted the pump would come on. I asked him several times what would be acceptable evidence to Mid-Atlantic that the sump pump was not needed; every time his standard answer was the "pump will come on". The real problem was solved by Roto-Rooter. They flushed the drains using a water jet. Then they inspected the insides of the drains using a fiber-optic camera. They located two regions of blockage and a broken pipe. The total cost of all this to me was $3730. Since that work the basement has had no water seeping in over the walls, even in heavy rains. The level of the water in the sump pump well has not budged (it is well below the pump) and not once has the pump come on. I believe Mr. Rick sold us the wrong solution to our problems and misrepresented the guarantee. Even if I recover nothing, as long as others see this complaint my purpose will be served. I would ask anyone contemplating doing business with Mid-Atlantic to know that the guarantee only covers ground water seeping up from the inside bottom of the basement walls; no matter what the salesman says it does not cover rain water seeping in over the basement walls.

Recent Review: Scott Mc our sales person did a good job of explaining things. I like a sales person that educates me on what they offer, tells me about several options and isn't heavy handed! That is what Scott did. He followed up and addressed every issue along the way. Josh E was very responsive and followed through. The best part of this kind of work is the front end of the sale - but in this case the work was amazing. Three professional workers - lead by Josh #2 worked SO HARD - in hot conditions and even through rain and kept a smile on their faces and addressed all my little worries along the way very knowledgeabley and professionally. We broke the job into two parts to install some plumbing and they worked well figuring out that step too. oh and by the way MY BASEMENT IS DRY!

Recent Review: I don't like them. Again, we were concerned about house and the basement and we're not sure if they treated them as they should have as far as quarantine element or get them evaluated and had no evidence they took care of that properly. I don't think that the end result was exactly the same of the salesman had promised. They drunk my beer, opened my refrigerator and got my beer, and they hit the bottles. They are really small younger guys and I ended up finding one beer bottle in a weird place and there were 5 more of them on another corner of the basement and there's no way that I put them there, and then where we find another beer bottle or not, my wife called the boss and the boss didn't answer the call. I did call, did complain, and the boss asked me what kind of beer and did replaced it. I was pissed because they basically stole from me. I haven't needed them to come back for any reason. They were charming the whole tie they were here but when ever they're here my beer is stolen.

Recent Review: They did the whole perimeter of my basement. Dug down into the floor several feet and put a french drain and two pumps in the  corners. The drain is connected to two french drain pipes outside that were put in my yard. Very quick work with crew of about 8-9 men doing the work from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Very courteous. I thought they would actually do more to the whole floor service after work was done to give it a finished look; especially for the price. Cleaned up after themselves very well. Kept the rest of the house clean and free of dust by putting up plastic. I will determine come spring and summer or after a heavy snow fall to make sure water is not coming into the basement but for now it is very dry and it has made a difference already on the freshness of the basement. They sprayed walls and floor to make sure if any mold was in place that has been removed or prevented.

Recent Review: The crew arrived promptly and worked cleanly and efficiently. Someone had to come back at a later date to install frost guards and it was clearly too big of a job for one person. However, he also worked hard and got the job done. All of the employees, from the man who came to give the estimate, to all of the installation crew, were personable, pleasant and hard working. This has been an extremely wet summer and our basement has been as dry as a bone since the system was installed.

They were wonderful. My basement flooded and I lost a lot of things like exercise equipment. All of my neighbors still have flooding issues and I haven't had any problems. I have referred them out to my neighbors. They have even called back to check with me on making sure my system is still working. It's nice to work with a company that is professional and gives you what they say they are.

Great! I had this work performed in March 2018. Summer 2018 has seen constant rain and flash flooding. Previously I would have had several feet of water in my basement from the saturating rain and storms that came through together (5+inches in 6 hours with 12 inches in 48hrs in already wet ground). Basement has been completely dry. I thought work would be more noticeable. The concrete over the drain is nicely done. No complaints about the work, better results than I expected (I expected it to be more noticeable).

First crew did not do satisfactory job. Messy with clean-up and cement work. Courteous second crew to dig up one drain and re-do. Then after that leak was fixed, another appeared in the corner. A lot more water. Worked well and cleaned up.

This is an update to my initial review back on 12/2015. I was contacted by Mid-Atlantic concerning my dissatisfaction and after 3 attempts to rectify the situation a manager named Dan responded to my residence to look at my concerns and numerous complains. I must say that the remedy offered to correct my problem was to redo the job in its entirety and to my ultimate satisfaction at no cost to me. Mid-Atlantic stands behind their product and workmanship. In these time it is good to know that there are companies who put customer satisfaction first. I highly recommend this company to take care of your basement waterproofing needs.

AEverdry Basement Waterproofing
After having five other Waterproofing Companies give me estimates and explain their Waterproofing Process I wanted them to do something on the outside as well as the inside to really prevent my basement from Water damage down the road. I had some minor issues but I knew I wanted to tackle the problem from the inside and outside and no company was able to meet my expectation until I called Everdry Waterproofing of Pittsburgh.   Everdry came out and I was skeptical at first of them. They showed up in a regular car and I was like this is going to be interesting and thought about just canceling the appointment as they walked up to the house but I decided just to see what they were going to offer.  They did a very thorough inspection and explain the problems they saw as we walked around the house the basement. The Salesman then asked to show us our options and the first option was just waterproofing the outside of the house which was one of the things I wanted to get done but it would cost $20K for my 1200 sq ft house. The second options was just waterproofing the inside which is what everyone else offered to do and would cost $2500 - $5000. I started to question where they were going with the two options since they were what the other Waterproofing companies offered. But then they offered a third option, which is something that patented and no one else can offer so I was very interested in hearing about. The Salesmen explained that the Multi Step Pressure Relief System included a outside and inside waterproofing that was lifetime guaranteed.   This is exactly what I was looking to get done and I could not believe that someone actually could do it for a reasonable price. We paid $13k to get our home waterproofed and they did in less a week after we first met the Salesman.  Although it will be a few years before I will be able to tell if the waterproofing is effective. However, with a lifetime warranty and having the outside foundation and inside waterproofed I feel like I made a very great in decision in choosing Everdry. I also a free EZ Breath System install in my basement family room too. Joe & Jessica W. Blairsville, PA

After I contacted, they came out quickly and gave bid.  After I accepted, they work in timely manner.  I had to co-ordinate their work with plumber and was able to do so easily with them.  Everything went smoothly.
