    The crew did a fantastic job. They were awesome. They swept everything when they were done and it looked like the place had never been touched! We had waterproofing done by another company before but your professionalism, service and experience was a night and day difference. We wish we had gone with you in the first place!

    Customer Testimonial

              I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the four men you sent out to do the work of fixing our water leak in the basement. They were such hard workers and never even sat down for a break to eat. They were very polite to us and knocked on our door each time they had a question. They cleaned up any messes and used appropriate language when talking and that meant a lot. They worked steady until they finished everything in one day and they were able to save a trip to come back here. It was so nice to see people working so hard and caring about doing things right. Please tell them we were very pleased with their work.

Eric addressed Roger’s questions and was able to develop a thorough plan to stabilize his walls. Roger felt that Eric’s proposal was a good fit for him, so he set a date for the installation.

    Our production crew installed 11 wall anchors along the two walls. Once the anchors were tightened, Roger was able to visibly see the difference in the stability of the walls. Roger was glad he chose a permanent solution to repair his foundation. Our wall anchor system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Roger will always have peace of mind that his home is protected.
