They were great. Did what I asked and suggested a better backup than what I thought to give me better piece of mind. I've had no issues. This is the kind of company you have confidence to recommend - which I have and they were also very happy.

Basement Flood Protector Inc is an outstanding firm, providing excellence of service. When I contacted the company, the process was thoroughly explained, my initial questions were answered, the cost was provided, and the date for the work was scheduled. A follow-up call was made by them to confirm the date, time, and cost. The agent called prior to arrival providing a 30 minute advance notice. The...

John gave a very honest assessment of the situation, which ended with no work ordered on his end, but made me feel great about his approach in general. I really appreciated his honesty and would certainly use/recommend him in the future.

Great service from beginning to end. John was easy to talk to, and did not try to upsell me on a unit I did not need. Installers arrived promptly on day of appointment, worked quickly, cleaned up after themselves, and gave me a thorough walkthrough of the new primary sump pump and battery backup. Would definitely use again!

Things went well. We received an estimate to put drains in window wells. The estimator did not pressure us at all. Since we were about to start another home project, and we did not have a serious water issue, the estimator encouraged us to do our other project first, and stated that his estimate would likely be good for a few years. Seemed very honest.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Asked for estimate to correct seepage in basement.

I called them in August and they said usually this time of year is a busy time, but they got me in around the time I needed it. Roger came out. I told him that when they installed the original pump in 2003 that there was an attachment that was part of their sump pump that stuck out of the side of the house. I let him know that a few years ago Hanover Park came out with an ordinance that the pipe c...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They originally installed my sump pump and back up battery back in 2003. In June of this year, they sent me a notice that the battery was getting to the end of its life and needed to be replaced. I wasnt able to do it at the time, but since Fall season is upon us and is usually rainy, I figured I shouldn't put this off any longer.

We just moved into a new (older) home in Hawthorn woods from the DC suburbs area in Virginia. My husband was out of town at the time and we were unaware/uneducated about sump pumps and lights on the already installed system. The alarm switch was off for some odd reason but the device had lit up and it was making a weird noise. I called the company on the box (Basement Flood Protector) and I left a...
