I used Angie's list to get a second estimage on the cost to install a French draim. I spoke to Phillip and reviewed the drainage problem and explained that I was interested in a second quote. He asked a number of questions to help better understand my situation. He viewed the property on Google Maps and within five minutes he was able to provide an estimate. Although I am going to stay with my ori...

This customer just needed to verify have her first quote was reasonable. I was happy to run it through a spreadsheet and let her know everything looked like it was in line. We are here to help anyway we can even if we don't do the work.

Back Story: We purchased a house a bit over a year ago wherein our inspector failed to note the rough condition of our crawlspace. After much research, I decided upon Phillip Madden's Exterior Waterproofing. The project itself was completed last August; I wanted to put the project through the rainy season of Alabama to get an idea of how well it went before I posted my review. As my rating shows a...

Phillip is professional and very knowledgeable on what specific waterproofing is required while not trying to pressure you into a more expensive project. He does a great job educating on how the water is coming into your crawlspace (or at least in my case it was a crawl space job), and he provides a set of solutions to help remedy the situation on a tier basis. Both he and the crew provide helpful...

Phillip and his crew arrived on time and installed a Gravity waterproofing system installed in one day! They were professional, courteous and even matched the price of another competitor. Would highly recommend this company to anyone who has a water issue in their home or business.

Mr. Madden did a video recording inspection which was then sent to me for my records. It explained why I was seeing moisture, what the causes were and ideas for further treatment - which in my case was not necessary. I was so impressed with his ability to explain and offer recommendations without breaking the bank! I will definitely recommend to everyone!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had a small moisture spot in my garage and needed it inspected for mildew/mold or other issues. Phillip Madden (president of company) came and did an inspection in the time frame I needed.

I had no problems. They did the job as expected and on time, and also came back when I asked for a few minor changes. I was impressed by how quickly they worked and by the clean-up afterward. Would hire again.

Exterior Waterproofing, Philip Madden and his crew, are superb contractors. They are not cheap, but their price is fair and reasonable for the work they do and it is a pleasure working with them. They are one of the few contractors I've hired who have done the work on schedule, on time, at the highest quality and at the agreed upon cost. I heartily recommend them to anyone needing waterproofing wo...

Phillip Madden's lead man Mark and his crew installed downspout drains from my gutter downspouts using heavy 4 inch PVC pipe and ran these underground, some out to the front street gutter, and others back to a drainage ditch behind my property. They did a very neat job of laying back the sod and the soil onto black plastic, then putting the pipe in and replacing the soil and the sod such that you ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had a problem with rain water coming from the gutter downspouts on my home and also from other homes uphill from me flooding my yard . This rain water had no place to go and had rotted the wooden fence around my back yard.I need a new fence, but could not get that until the water problem was solved.
