Julian is awesome!!  He really knows his stuff and is fantastic to work with.  We have been working with him for two months now trying to determine the best course of action for our basement.  When he came out initially, he scoped our drains for $350.  He found a bunch of gunk (I apologize if I don't get all the technical terms correct) in the footer drain along the back of the house and a spot in...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Ace Basement Waterproofing was hired to dig out two basement walls and one garage wall in order to alleviate water build up in the basement of my residence. The services they provided were not completed according to contract, so I continue to have problems with water in the basement. I have made several complaints with the Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine and Better Business Bureau. Please see the next section for a detailed explanation of events I have encountered with Ace Basement Waterproofing.

When I originally went out to the above house, the homeowner showed me her finished basement and said that she was getting water in it in two different spots in the basement. She also showed me a spot in the garage where she had water coming in. she told me they were looking to sell the house and that she wanted to keep her costs down, so I told her that we could dig in these three areas to find o...

Poorly. See above. We have placed at least 6 phone calls to the company; none have been returned.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Ace waterproofed a home that's in the family, currently occupied by my in-laws. We have no major complaints about the waterproofing itself. The home is on Burns Road in North Olmsted.  There are three other issues. 1. The company tore down and replaced a small porch (for an additional $2,000). The work was poorly done. Water puddles and freezes and causes big sections of ice to form. 2. The company said removed the handrailing from the porch, which is about 3 feet off the ground, and did not replace it. We still have the handrailing. This is a huge safety hazard.  3. The company determined we needed an outdoor sump pump. We offered to go buy it at Home Depot for about $200. Julian said we needed a better-quality one. He went and bought the same one we were planning to buy and charged us $1,600 for it. He also refused to provide a receipt for the purchase.

We always explain the work we will do, and put it in writing before the work is performed, as we did in this case. We originally contracted to waterproof the front, left and exposed parts of the back wall of the basement. A permit was pulled before any work began on the house. We also called the city fo...
