Basement Waterproofing reviews in Palo Alto

  • A
    Very good. Here are the details: called a number of companies that do sump pump work. Only these guys and another vinyl sheeting company came to the site. I chose these guys because their upsell wasn't as strong and I appreciated that. Our crawl space has a lot of ducting and not much space to crawl. They removed dirt, installed the plastic barrier and then the vinyl (?) sheeting. Epoxied it to the house. Finished as expected. Once they left, I went under the house and was very happy with the install  - the points of attachment and fastening were strong and numerous. I was able to get around easily. The best part is the house now is smell free. I started by wanting a sump pump and ended with something altogether different, but I think my initial idea was bringing a garden hose to a forest fire. This is the way to go.

    25 years at this house and in wet winters we would have a damp smell coming up from the crawlspace. Rats were out of control too. We had sump pumps all around the house. Always cleaning or replacing or re-setting GFI outlets. I did it all myself. Finally I called his company to replace some sump pumps. Estimator came out and said they don't do that. They encapsulate the crawlspace. I said what about the pumps? He said it won't matter any more. I went for it.
    They just left and couldn't wait to get underneath and look. I am very pleased with the workmanship. If you look at the photos (hey angie can I post photos?), they fastened this 20mil reinforced plastic sheeting to the sides of the foundation using rivets. Not a bit of dirt or debris to be seen. The crew was very professional. Very polite, lots of drop clothes to protect the floors. Their workmanship was very good. If they were my crew, I would be very pleased.
    Just a word of caution - not a deal breaker but...the first day required a lot of dirt work. Invariably the house became dusty. I would have put painters tarp over couches and other soft surfaces. Second, don't be surprised to have some smell of epoxy - the material they use to glue the sheets together. It goes away in a day. It's part of the install which makes me happy they use it. So far I'm very happy with the job.

    S & R General Construction
    Rafael Gamez, the general contractor, is absolutely first-rate. Personable, reliable, reasonable, professional regarding all types of home remodeling, repair, roofing, and interior and exterior painting for our small 100+ yr. old Georgetown house.��
    Rafael formerly operated under the name of his brother, Omar Construction (also rated separately in 2012).
    His team is extremely professional and timely. They show up promptly, even work nights and weekends to finish jobs on time.
    Overall our new kitchen, using IKEA cabinets, required extensive demo work and careful refitting, customization of cabinets, crown molding, trim, etc.�� It's a masterpiece, admired by family, friends, neighbors.
    And it was done for MUCH less than IKEA's own installers quoted for the job.
    Subsequently, facing slow leaking, seepage in walls at exterior rear corner of house--from basement to roof--we had Rafael repair and resurface our roof, repoint all exterior brick work where leaking was observed, waterproof and repaint entire house and front trim. When this work failed to stop water seepage, Rafael removed interior plaster, repaired and repointed interior brick walls where seepage was still observed, plastered with waterproof cements, replastered and repainted interior walls.�� He was tireless and meticulous in following up to measure moisture content of walls and ensure all seepage was stopped--ultimately solving a problem that had plagued previous owners of the house for decades and which no other contractor had been able to solve.
    We also had Rafael's team install attic access folding stairway and insulate and install flooring in our attic crawl space.
    His team also built custom cabinets to match our IKEA kitchen for our washer dryer, a job that, due to age and tight spaces of our old house, proved more difficult than planned.�� Rafael had his craftsmen return several times to get the job done right, tireless until we were completely satisfied with the result. Regardless of extra time required, he honored his original price.
    All jobs, plus other odds and ends, were done extremely well and at reasonable prices over a period of several years. He has good men who he treats well and who like working for him. They always seal off working areas and clean up after every day's work and at the end of any job.�� His sister also provides total housecleaning services when required after particularly dirty or dusty jobs.
    He has done major total home remodeling, completely gutting interiors, building additions, etc., for other clients in Washington, DC and suburban Virginia and Maryland.
