Thanks for Rescuing Our Flooded Basement
Thank you so much for giving us quick service. Not knowing what was wrong or how to handle it was upsetting and scary. Randall was the perfect person for the job! He put me somewhat at ease, and immediately provided advice on how we should handle the problem.
Randall suggested we call Cardinal Plumbing and, luckily, they were able to come that same day, thanks to Randall's personal call to them. It was determined that our sump pump had been overwhelmed, so we decided to replace it with a new pump, a backup pump and marine battery. It took more than two days to pump all the water from beneath our house, and the basement floor is finally drying. The runoff created a lake behind our house, and it was amazing to watch how much water was there, and how fast it ran out. We are assuming, with advice from the plumber, that we have an underground spring beneath the house. We will always have our sump pump serviced every year!!!
I immediately went on Angie's List and made a very favorable Comment for your company. If we need to have any waterproofing services in the future, you will be the only people I will call. Thank you for such good service!
Wet corners have been eliminated. Rain no longer increases my heart rate. Thank you Basement Master Waterproofing for a job professionally done!
We had multiple basement water problems in our Virginia suburban home. Installing an inside and outside sump pump, grading the yard, and installing drain pipes from downspouts ameliorated problems somewhat but our basement still had wet spots. I called Basement Masters Waterproofing in August of 2016 to see if they could help solve my longstanding water problems.
Mr. Butterfield came promptly, reviewed our basement water issues, and recommended several solutions, including an inside and outside solution. We chose the latter that involved digging out from our basement footing several feet and installing drains and waterproofing to the foot and outside masonry walls. Mr. Butterfield was low-keyed in his presentation and in no way were we pressured to decide in favor of the more expensive solution.
Walter and his crew completed the work in October in an efficient and professional manner. Along the way, all requests for changes were accepted and acted upon promptly and with patient understanding. We were faced with the extra cost of disconnecting and moving our air conditioning unit. Walter figured out a way to elevate it and suspend it while digging under the unit at no additional cost. We have a complex patio that had to be partially dissembled, then reassembled and that was done professionally. We asked that gravel, not earth, be placed all the way up so the patio steps would not settle. We asked that the indoor sump pump be removed in favor of the outside pump placed close to the house. We added the request to examine our patio sump pump. All these and more exceptions were done and errors made in former attempts to solve our water problems were corrected. The extra costs for our additional changes were reasonable. Cleanup was thorough and the job was finished expeditiously.
Thanks to the excellent and professional job of Basement Master Waterproofing we have a bone-dry basement. Wet corners have been eliminated. Rain no longer increases my heart rate. Thank you Basement Master Waterproofing for a job professionally done!
If you haven't been able to find the right company to fix water issues in your home, look no further.
Basement Masters Waterproofing did an excellent job installing drain tile in my basement. I have had a lot of difficulty finding reliable, trustworthy contractors in Northern Virginia. They identified the problem and fixed it on time and well within my budget. There was never any up selling or scare tactics. If you haven't been able to find the right company to fix water issues in your home, look no further. I hope I never have water problems in the future, but if so, I'll be calling Basement Masters Waterproofing without hesitation.
Their engineering analysis, proposed solution, and installation were all superior.
Basement Masters provided a multi-focus project for us that included French drains, waterproofing of basement walls inside and out, and replacement and upgrade of underground roof drainage piping.
Their engineering analysis, proposed solution, and installation were all superior and have worked masterfully to correct and control serious problems of weeping cellar wall cracks, erosion due to above ground rain runoff, and underground routing of water from roof gutters.
Their project manager was knowledgeable and easy to work with and their installation crew was outstanding in focused installation work, cleanup, and avoidance of damage to structures, lawns, and plants. The follow-up by their project manager was prompt and thorough. The project manager inspired confidence and provided an excellent solution and project plan and the crew delivered speedy and positive results. I strongly recommend them to anyone with difficult waterproofing and drainage issues.
I was so amazed at what I saw! You could not tell that anyone had worked this job after they were done! So clean and neat.
Absolutely fantastic right from the first interview! They were very personable, extremely professional, and explained everything that needed to be done.
I had 4 other companies come in for estimates. What a disaster! Their prices were out of sight! What they suggested that had to be done was extremely destructive to my basement creating additional work and costs after they were done! Randalls ' helpers were equally as good as Randall. They explained everything they were going to do before they got started AND showed me as they were progressing what they did so far. Very polite and efficient.
I left to go to work and came home late after work. I was so amazed at what I saw! It was dark out and so I went and got a flashlight so that I could see what I thought I saw! I anxiously waited for the morning so that I could check this job again. I could not and still can not believe the job that they did. You could not tell that anyone had worked this job after they were done! So clean and neat. Beautiful. I am so grateful and pleased. They were not the cheapest quote I got, but their price was very good for what they had to do. AND, I didn't have any extra expenses after! I highly recommend Basement Masters Waterproofing in Gainesville, VA.
