Konnor came out to go through the crawlspace and then prepared the estimate. Very smooth process. The original estimate included a french drain and a sump pump. I suggested we hold off on the french drain to see if the sump pump would be enough. The work was done in a timely manner and the crew was friendly and professional. Follow-up was great. A year after the work was done I contacted the compa...

Ability Plus Drainage listened to the problem I described and the end result I wanted (others didn't). Their proposed solution made sense (others didn't) and they walked me through it all and answered all questions. They did point out that part of what I wanted done was "belt and suspenders" (which I knew, but was willing to pay for as it was not the bulk of the work and was relatively cheap insur...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had an ongoing, very frustrating problem with water seeping into our crawl space through our foundation cold joint as well as permeating the foundation sidewall. We spent three years trying to fix it (work done in the summer, find out in the winter it didn't fix the problem, rinse and repeat). We had at least 5 or 6 different contractors/drainage "experts" out to look at it over the years, and the "solutions" ranged from "what do you want me to do?" to crazy, extremely expensive $10 and $20K ideas (thus my inability to comment on price, as I wouldn't be comparing apples to apples). One company insisted there was "no way" to prevent the water coming in, and I needed what he was selling to deal with the water once it got inside.

Ability put in a new drainage line along the side of the house, digging down to the base of the foundation, which was a ton of work. They ran pipe out to a spot in the yard for the water to drain to, and they connected the downspouts to the new pipes (The old drain pipes had failed.) They put in a moisture barrier up against the house and sealed the crack. They did this work in very rainy conditio...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had a crack in our foundation, which caused water to get into a basement room. We needed the crack repaired and better drainage put in. We had several estimates done, which were all over the map in terms of what should be done.

They are very hard workers and performed the task that they were asked to do.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The dug a ditch around the outside of the back of the house, removed the old drainage pipe placed around the footing because it wasn't removing the water correctly, put some waterproof material around the foundation and replaced the dirt. The basement doesn't leak anymore. They also placed a French drain in the yard with some cleanout stations, and it carries the water from the back to the front pipe that carries it to the street.

Other companies will try to sell you $10,000 solutions to seal your crawlspace and install sump pumps and dehumidifiers. These guys don't give you a huge salespitch. But the owner came out and saw that we had an interior low point drain the trenching could be connected to. He's the only one that offered that solution, so I have to give him points for that. I worked up the courage to go down there ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Our crawlspace had water and very soft muddy ground. We also needed to replace the vapor barrier because of a prior rodent infestation.
