Basement Waterproofing reviews in Clive

  • Iowa Foundation Repair, Winterset, is definitely the best in the business. Justin Porter lazer measured the basement walls and determined exactly how much they had moved over the years. After checking the cracks in the block walls, he proposed anchoring the walls without installing sump pumps. Three other companies quoted me sump pumps which included jack-hammering the basement floor. Justin's crew also installed egress windows and did a great job on those too. This was no easy job. Even though the crew had to dig in the front yard to install the anchors, when they left there was no indication they had even been there. Wow. In and out in one day. Since then no leaks even during the worst of rains. Can't say enough good about Justin and his professional crew. These guys are the best!

  • They installed this system over two days in September of 2017. It was amazing to watch these professionals work. On the first day, four men broke up and removed the concrete. Then they dug up the dirt and removed it bucket by bucket. They installed the drainage system and sump pump. By the time they were done, they had completely filled a dump truck with the dirt and concrete that was removed bucket by bucket. The four were all very courthouse and hard working. They never stopped. They cleaned up their work so that the basement was ready the next day for the cement crew. The second day the cement crew came and in a few hours completely sealed the drainage tunnel. It looked great. This crew was exactly like the first crew: courteous and very hard working. I cannot say enough about the job they did. The proof of the quality of their work will come next spring but I could not have been happier with the work they performed for me.

  • A representative came out about two weeks before the service was performed.  He inspected the wall we were concerned about and explained what he thought needed to be done, in great detail.  We decided on the spot to go with this company because of how their system works to hold foundation walls. I'd researched others and didn't like how it looked like it wasn't going to hold for years.  This one has a couple thousand pounds of concrete poured to help the rods stabilize the walls. 
    After signing the contract, they sent a rep out the Friday before they were supposed to start to make sure things were set to go.  I showed him another wall that hadn't been exposed due to drywall being up before.  I had taken it down and there were large cracks there as well.  He took pictures and said he'd get them to his boss to see if stabilizing that wall was recommended.  It was.
    When the crew showed up on Monday, they were on time.  The crew leader was very polite and all of the crew members introduced themselves.  They were a very nice group of guys.  The work was supposed to last 1 day, but they had trouble getting concrete so it took a second day.  The crew leader explained what had happened and obviously felt bad.  I wasn't concerned as I just wanted it done right.
    Upon completion of the work, they explained again what they had done and showed me how to monitor the sump pump.  They cleaned up their materials and the mess. 
    One of the drawbacks of this system is it does tear up your yard to dig the trench for the cement.  We will have to reseed it. 
    Another note is that I feel that the price of this service is fair.  However, it is not cheap and there are cheaper options.  I just didn't feel the other systems were nearly strong enough for my peace of mind.  While I feel the price is reasonably fair for the work they do, I don't think it's a bargain.  The warranty is good though.

  • Excellent experience.  They worked with me to come up with a solution, and did the work exactly as outlined.  The installation crew was very professional and efficient.  They took care to minimize the mess from an inherently messy job and did the work in a timely manner.  Would definitely use them again if the need arose.

  • I contacted three company off of Angies List. One, although under the basement repair category, did not provide the services I required. I checked the BBB on the other two before obtaining estimates from the other two. One provided the slickest/best presentation but wanted to do more than I felt the job called for. Plus they could not start the job for six weeks and even considering the questionable extras the cost was too high. Nor did their costs include any prep or finish work for the job; just fixing the walls & extensive water problem.

    Better Basement Technologies showed me what I needed plus some extras that I might want to consider although not necessary for the repair. The sales rep also said he would sub-contract the initial prep work (paneling/carpet removal, framing, drywall installation with taping/mudding  and the outside landscaping including concrete patio tear-out & sodding  to complete the job: all at a much less price and they could start the following week.

    All work was done promptly/professionally except for a few minor delays because of the weather. I opted to have paneling installed instead of dry wall plus have the carpentry crew do a more extensive job in the basement and do some roof repair to my screened in porch.

  • These guys are very nice to work with. What they did was on time. They gave me a lot of advice on what I needed to do.

  • Great presentation. But wanted to do more than necessary (my opinion), Cost was too high. They couldn't start the job soon enough. Would not provide prep work or any finishing.
