A member asked Angie Hicks what to do about water pooling in her crawl space
Here are the pros, cons and costs connected with the various basement waterproofing methods.
Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?
It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result. It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues.
Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.
Basement Waterproofing reviews in Manchester
The crew was excellent. They have been working with Pioneer for years and know their job well. They did quality work and were good about answering questions and explaining things.
We had been putting off the waterproofing for years because of bad experiences we had heard of in the past, but this went exactly as I wanted. They did excellent work at a fair price. I wish we had gotten the basement waterproofed years ago.
Initial meet up was 2 weeks after the purchase of the voucher and resulted in little more than a sales pitch. Upon first entering the house, the employee was shown the basement and within 10 minutes of his arrival began advocating for an interior drain while opening up a folder with payment plans. A solution was presented so I went along with his recommendation and I mentioned exterior drainage and was given an anecdote about a client who improved the exterior drainage only to call on AR&W for an interior drainage system. All together a second well and sump pump, two back up sump pumps, interior drain, and gutter extensions of ~100ft x3 were estimated at over $9000. This is all without any initial observations of the exterior system. He simply walked in and looked at the basement for <5 minutes and suggested and interior drain while touting the companies quality and diminishing competitors.
After speaking with neighbors and coworkers regarding their basement issues, not a single person I knew had an interior drain put in and I called for a revision of the initial plan. The business was accommodating and revised the cost to ~$6000 for one 120ft drainage line, 2 15ft extensions from the gutters, and a back up sump pump. While seeming excessive, it was accepted that this was the least invasive. All the while I was reminded by the salesman that exterior work wasn't as good as an interior drain.
Two weeks ago I had a family crisis and incurred medical expenses that were more important than the house and asked for termination of the contract which they obliged. However, $613 of $1k downpayment was retained for expenses related to estimates. No labor was performed.
A coworker recently told me that she had been looking for business to help with waterproofing in the South Broad Ripple area and she came across the same tactics. When I mentioned the name of the business and the sales employee involved she confirmed the same business. My final impression of this business is that they initially pitch expensive repairs that MAY not be nescessary (as evidenced by lack of exterior analysis) and use pressure tactics to get you to sign on the spot (10% off signing the day of, sign the day of for expedited scheduling).
