    GENERAL BRICK DESIGNS
    The short version��� We called General Brick Design because of water issues in the crawlspace. Mr. Ed. Costanzo came (at no charge) and did a thorough examination of the problem. The water seeping into the crawlspace brought to light a more serious issue, we lacked foundation on two sides of our home, which, along with the water, would structurally compromise our house and become more critical if not tackled. Ed didn���t give an estimate and walk away, rather he insisted on showing me everything. He took as much time as needed to explain what was happening and answered all questions, thereby calming my concerns. Ed and his team work in sync and responsibly handle all aspects of the job. They are amazing. Throughout, I was welcome to watch everything and we really appreciated the crew not rushing through the work to move onto the next job. We now have a sturdy foundation on all sides of our house, no water seeping into the crawlspace, and peace of mind, priceless. This is our home and the investment to fix it was well worth it! A more detailed rundown��� Let���s start in February 2018 - our sump pump died and enough water came up into the crawlspace to disable the boiler ��� we feared a repeat, okay I feared a repeat. That said, 2018 was also a year of endless rain; barely a week passed without another downpour and the newly installed sump pump was working non-stop, 24/7, which it hadn���t done in the years prior. At least once every single minute (sometimes less) it was pumping out groundwater. In other words, the sump pump NEVER stopped. Funny, but some people can tune out a frequent sound while for me the incessant rumbling of the sump pump caused my stress level to skyrocket ��� no matter what others said I thought something had changed and was concerned. So, finding water seeping into the crawlspace pushed me to act now rather than wait as suggested. Initially, just before Thanksgiving (2018), I called General Brick Design, along with several other companies, as water was leaking into the crawlspace during any rains and we wanted to know what to do. Several reps stuck to sales pitches, such as installing a second sump pump (not a viable option) or putting in a French drain, but Mr. Ed Costanzo asked questions and just as important he listened. In addition to not haphazardly throwing out solutions, he offered, at no charge, to come and examine the problem, which the other companies had not. We decided to call Mr. Costanzo after the boiler in the crawlspace was moved upstairs, which we did in mid-December. By this time, the persistent sound of the sump pump along with water staying in the crawlspace was, for me, unbearable and I would have made a deal with the devil to stop it��� thankfully, it didn���t go that far. Mr. Ed Costanzo came to the house, at no cost, with equipment and scanned the crawlspace, house, and property. Afterward, with me in tow, he took time to do it all again explaining what we were seeing and to answer my questions. Turns out two connecting sides of our home lacked something essential ��� footing and foundation, which along with water was compromising the house. (Looking into this, I found the house was originally a one-story summer home, and it seems the contractor did not consider foundation when adding a second floor, at least on two sides of the house, go figure.) Talk about rising stress. Giving the estimate Mr. Costanzo realized how scary all this was and it was important to him that we understood and were as comfortable as possible with what was required to fix the foundation and water issues. So, this curse of water was actually a lucky thing as we never would have realized the foundation crisis until structural damage occurred in our home. Mr. Costanzo came by several times prior to work beginning to map out the job and measure readings. He also told me that they do not rush the work, especially on intricate jobs, and that he takes the responsibility of all tasks seriously. True to his word, the job was 18 days, with adjustments made throughout as he and his crew evaluated what was being done, and I am extremely glad, as I���d rather be the tortoise than the hare in this scenario. In case you���re wondering, at no time was I ever out of the loop on what was happening in and around my home. Ed and his team (Oscar, Wilson, Tony, and Alonso) had no problem with my observing the work or answering my, more than once, queries. As a matter of fact, I witnessed the damp dirt that was my homes foundation as they dug down and it was terrifyingly not stable. This crew is dependable, conscientious and considerate. They work together very well, which is crucial especially when it���s your home. Along with the foundation work, Ed also resolved the pressure and water concerns in and around the crawlspace. He and his team went above and beyond the job scope. The work is done. Our home has stable foundation on all 4 sides and no water seeping into the crawlspace. Also, I can tell you the minute the sump pump stopped and while I wake up as usual during the night, I now turn over and go back to sleep, even when it rains - Yeah! Was this an expensive endeavor? Yes. Was it worth it? Oh yes, most definitely. We highly recommend Ed Costanzo and his company, General Brick Design, and would gladly hire them again without question. Thank you so much guys.

    GENERAL BRICK DESIGNS
    Ed's service was just amazing.  I had planned to have some shrubs removed before the work began, but had not done so when Ed called to say he would be starting the next day.  He had his workers remove three large shrubs, cut them into manageable stacks and remove the roots.  They then trenched out for cobblestone borders along the driveway, removed asphalt from the lower portion of the drive and set new pavers in place.  Their work was meticulous and they took great care to clean up at the end.  The following day they removed the broken concrete from the entryway, poured new concrete and finished up the driveway.  I cannot say enough about how professional and courteous everyone was.  I am delighted with the outcome and will definitely use Ed's company in the future and recommend him to others.  Thanks, Angie's List...I was delighted with my experience.

    Healthy Basement Systems
    Buyer beware! This company came over for a water issue I had in my basement .Mind you I am very critical of any reviews I  post on Angie's List because I am also a small business owner with over 70 A-Plus reviews on this site . My problem was an issue with my cesspool . I discovered this after one of there salesman Ian gave me an estimate  for over $8,500 to install a trench system in my basement and decided to get a second opinion. I called a local cesspool company and the issue was resolved for $330.00. I can not comment on this companies workmanship but trust my review there estimating practices are not forthcoming ! Shame on Healthy Basements for there dishonest practices!

    Healthy Basement Systems
    They were wonderful. They solved my problem and they were super. They answered all my questions. The estimate I got was what they agreed on doing it. They did a beautiful job. We live over an underground river. When we bought this house we were kids. When the water table goes up the basement floods; it’s like a river running through. Actually, I can hear the water running through the basement. We were told many years ago that the only way to do that was to dig under the foundation and put in French drains. Both my husband and I were very skeptical about digging under the foundation. I didn’t like that idea and so we didn’t do it. We dealt with surface pumps down there. We didn’t want to dig in and put a sump pump in because it didn’t flood that often. When it flooded it was awful and sometimes we pumped for 2 or 3 years before it went down. It was very expensive and of course very wet down there. I finally said I can’t handle this by myself anymore. I am especially glad I did this last summer because when I use the surface pumps; I pump out through the cellar window and with the winter we had we would be freezing the hose up. Healthy Basement Systems went in the basement and they created a French drain around the perimeter of the basement. So when the water comes it flows around the perimeter of the basement. Then it flows over the sump pump area where there is a big industrial sump pump. They also put in a big dehumidifier. When they finished they also put in a special lining around to keep the humidity out. They also put a new cellar window. They were wonderful to work with. So far there is no water and it’s worked. It’s been a dry year. We also had a few torrential rains and sometimes that was enough to set it off. I live here in the south for some 40 years. I have never seen dust in the basement and it was always too damp down there. There is dust down there now. They are a delightful company and they did a beautiful job. So I am very happy with them. When they were coming in they told me that I can save myself some money, if I have somebody take down the insulation between the basement and the first floor. They were trying to save me money by doing that so that was nice of them. My son who is a city fireman took it down. I made him wear protective gear because he was a brand new fireman when the trade center went down. He was there for two and half weeks with no mask on. He was only 20 years old at the time. I told him that he has to do it. He was all dressed up and it was a hot day. I know that they charge everybody the same price and I imagine that is what it cost. They were here 3 or 4 days. I have all kinds of back up batteries in case there is a power failure. I have a huge sump pump, a huge dehumidifier, the digging plus couple of other things they did around here. I would say their price was excellent. I think that’s a pretty good price. The people that worked for him were fabulous too. Everybody was great. They all communicated with me. They were here when they said they would be here. They always let me know what they were doing that day and how long they will be there. They just were very professional. It was an awesome company. I have recommended them to everybody that had similar problems. They said that they were wonderful. I found Healthy Basement Systems through a friend of mine. We live not far from the water. My friend lives closer to the water. She told me that she had used them. She told that they are amazing. Her basement is as dry as a bone. Another friend of mine had a crawl space that kept flooding and her house smelled. She told me that they were unbelievable. Now the house is great. It is totally dry and it doesn’t have that smell anymore. They just did a fantastic job. In fact, I got them through recommendation of other people that used them. I have never been so impressed by a company.

    I wish there was a higher rating than an "A", Ed would get it!!!!
    Ed Costanza, owner of General Brick Designs, was referred to us by one of our family members who also had a wonderful experience with cosmetic stone work and waterproofing.  We were looking to finish our basement, but had some water issues  that we wanted to be resolved prior to moving forward with the renovation.  My brother, who referred us, has a crawl space that would always flood with the slightest rainfall.   His crawl space has been bone dry ever since Ed and his wonderful crew completed the waterproofing ...while his neighbors are forever pumping out!!!
    Ed is a former army corp engineer.  He is a brilliant man!  His knowledge goes well beyond masonry.  He and his crew were always punctual and extremely friendly when coming to our home.  Oscar, Ed's foreman always had a smile on his face and did amazing work. 
     
    Ed would answer his phone at any time, prior to, during and now after the job to address any questions that we or our contractor may have.  He and his crew were unobtrusive, kind and CLEAN!  When Ed and his crew are around you feel like you are their only priority!!  Ed did not rush the job, he discovered some structural issues with our home which he fixed without asking for compensation. We call him our "Mike Holmes".
    We would highly recommend Ed to a friend or family member with absolute confidence that they will be receiving the best work possible.

    Bruce and his crew were fantastic. He was very thorough, tidy and did everything that I had requested. There was a slight mix-up on something but Bruce went out his way to correct the issue. Even after completing the job he has answered some other questions that I had. Following the project he was able to recommend some other companies for other projects that I wanted to complete.
