Customers on YELP Review Basement Waterproofing Specialists Services
I was very happy with the work that Basement Waterproofing Specialists (BWS) did in my basement. The guy who came, Mark, walked us through the process and showed us things that our inspector had overlooked (argh). The quote was similar from another company but I decided to go with BWS because they could do it quickly and I know neighbors of mine had used them as well, and were happy.
Day of the guys arrived promptly and worked efficiently; their GPS was stolen from their car (!) but they took it in stride (sorry guys).
The one point of improvement I would say is that I was a little disappointed at the level of dust in the basement- they had put up plastic, but had only taped it on the top, not on the bottom (didn’t tape it to the floor, I mean), so dust got in through the bottom.
The concrete dust is really hard to clean up and it’s been a battle to try and not track it through the house every time I go through the basement. Overall, it’s quite clean given the jackhammering etc they were doing down there (they even mixed the concrete outside to reduce dust) but I just wish a better barrier had been formed with the plastic.
And I forgot the most important part. I now have a dry, mold-free basement!! – Laura A., Philadelphia, PA
Another Basement Waterproofing Specialists Yelp Review:
Saw this company at the Philly Home Show and decided to have them come out for an estimate. We got a good price (as I was told by another contractor who came by later) at $4000 for installation during the late winter when business was slow and if we had some flexibility to have them come in less than a week.
The work took a couple days and they explained everything to me before the process started and after they were done. They did have to tear out the bottom of my basement walls and the slate tile I had, but they warned me about this in advance.
The contractor I finally got to come for the wall/tile repair said they did a good job, but I guess time will tell whether I’ll need the lifetime guarantee! I was glad to (hopefully) resolve my basement moisture issues. It would be helpful if the company had some formal relationships with contractors who could repair the wall/floors right after the sump pump installation. Otherwise, everything went as planned! – Rose W., Philadelphia, PA
