Frequently Asked Questions

What makes your system so good?

Our approach is the best in the industry. You don’t fix your leaky roof from the inside, so why do it with your basement? Add to that, the exclusive products  that we use really work…period!  Because our system is installed on the outside of your house, water doesn’t have a chance to get in. Just read our Guarantee and then read any of our competitors...fine print and all.

 

Why don’t other companies fix the problem from the outside?

             Two reasons: 1) It’s hard work 2) They don’t have the Barrier-P membrane and              Dual Drainage system.

 

Your “System” sounds expensive?

The Barrier Dual Drainage Waterproofing System costs about the same as an interior system. Much less if you consider replacing a failing interior system in the future.

 

Can’t I just install larger downspouts and make the problem go away?

Unfortunately, the answer is usually “no”. Larger gutters, re-grading, burying downspouts, French drains, all help but don’t fix the problem.  The problem is not topical, it’s subsurface.

 

Your System seems complex, how long does it take to do a job?

Installing our system is complex.  However, our experienced field personnel can install the average system in about 3 to 4 days.

 

I have an interior system and it fails during larger storms, why?

Because your system is overrun and simply cannot handle everything that Mother Nature throws at it.

 

What about your system, will it get “overrun” also?

Positively not!  Our system has been designed to handle hundreds of gallons  of water per hour - much more than any projected worse case scenario.

 

I’ve talked to another waterproofing company and the salesman said his system would end my problems “forever”, is that possible?

Talk is cheap.  Ask him if he fixes his roof leak from the inside. And be sure you get an exact copy of their guarantee and please read every word before signing a contract.

 

The same salesman told me that my walls may still be wet but I would never have to mop up the water again.  Isn’t this want I want…no more cleaning up the mess after a long hard day?

Not exactly. If your walls are wet, you still have a problem. Interior systems merely redirect the water after it penetrates the foundation walls.  The water comes in and is captured and redirected leaving the walls wet.

 

Why should I be concerned with wet or discolored walls?

If the walls are wet or “discolored” due to moisture you should be concerned.  A foundation wall is like a sponge and it will hold moisture.  This can lead to bigger problems. 

 

What do you mean by “Bigger Problems”?

STRUCTURAL DECAY, HEALTH RISKS, AND POOR RESALE VALUE.  Building materials and water don’t mix and MOLD begins growing within 24 to 36 hours of a water leak. These all combine to reduce your home’s value.

 

Mold isn’t that bad… is it?  Why should I be concerned with MOLD?

There are many different types of mold and some are extremely TOXIC.  But don’t take our word for it, call your physician and ask about the dangers associated with “TOXIC” or “BLACK MOLD”.

 

Will my homeowners insurance policy pay for these repairs?

Unfortunately,  the answer is NO.  Homeowners policies don’t pay for waterproofing or repairs due to water intrusion.  Please refer to your homeowners policy for further details.

 

I’m selling my house but the foundation leaks when it rains and I’m looking for the cheapest “fix” I can get.  What’s wrong with my taking the “low bid” and selling the house?

We don’t profess to be legal advisors but suggest that you consult with a Real Estate Attorney and pose the same question.  You might be surprised at your potential liability if the leak persists.

 

OK then, I’ll just sell the house “as is”.  That should take care of the liability issue, right?

Only if you disclose to the buyer that the foundation leaks.  Many folks think that “as is” means not disclosing existing problems…they’re wrong!  If you are selling “as is” you must disclose any and all existing problems or you could be held liable for failure to disclose.  Consult with your attorney to verify this.

 

Will this be a “messy” process?

As with any construction, yes.   The big difference is that our “mess” is confined to the outside of your home.  We assure you there will be no workers or mess inside your home and nobody will be knocking on your door asking to use your bathroom or looking for a glass of water.  No foul language, no loud and annoying music, and absolutely no trash left behind…period!  We are professionals every step of the way.  Our promise is to treat your home as we would our own.

 

This all sounds good.  Can you give me a price over the phone?

That would be no more possible than your doctor treating you over the phone.  Every house is different and must be inspected prior to rendering a price.

 

I guess that makes sense.  But will you “hound” me after I call and subsequently meet with you?

We aren’t “professional salespeople” and we don’t play those games.  We are simply hard working contractors and waterproofing professionals and will inspect your problem, show you what we do, and render our opinion.  After all it’s your home and your decision.

 

How soon can you install your system if I agree to go forward?

That all depends on our workload at that time.  We make it a policy to never “bump” anyone in favor of another.
