In the United States Marine Corps, the best you can be at your job is “Outstanding” and Atlantic Coast Waterproofing is easily that! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a long-term fix for any and all kind of basement waterproofing issues!
In March of 2011 I noticed I had a weeping wall in the south west corner of my basement, when I removed the paneling we discovered we had a much bigger problem. My house was built in the late 1950’s and whatever waterproofing had been done then had deteriorated to the point where there was a very costly fix coming down the road if something wasn’t done very soon.
Gary Lustig came on a Friday afternoon and did a complimentary check of both the inside and outside of the basement and then explained exactly what was wrong and what it would take to fix it, all in plain English – NO HYPE – just straight talk. He had his crew of 5 at my house the next Monday and they worked their tails off until the job was done on the following Wednesday (2 & a half days).
If you have any kind of construction business, this is the kind of crew that anyone would be proud to have working for them. They went out of their way to keep the dust down and the mess that they were going to have to make to do the job under control, even to the point of putting runners down as they dug out an 18inch wide by 18inch deep trench all the way around the basement. Atlantic Coast Waterproofing has a method that leaves connectors from the foundation to the floor so the structure of the house is never in jeopardy. They tunnel under these and can then maintain the fall needed for the drainage pipe all the way around to the sump pump.
Now, keep in mind, this is a basement with stairs and everything that were removed in the excavation phase as well as all the material needed to rebuild the drainage system was carried in or out in 5 gallon buckets by Gary and his very polite, professional and experienced crew. This type of work is the definition of “bull work” and very labor intensive. However, I never once heard any grumbling or complaining from anyone. Gary asked me to come and check out how things were progressing and what they had discovered several times, always explaining how they were going about doing the job. He recommended a couple of changes which made perfect sense to me and the asking before doing is a great testimony to Gary’s professionalism and personal integrity.
Atlantic Coast Waterproofing has a 100% unconditional lifetime guarantee and from the quality of the workmanship as well as the process they use, I can understand how it can be given with complete confidence.
In a nutshell, I trust Gary’s word, and for me, that is saying something – just ask my friends how often they have heard me say anything like that.
The coffee is always on and you are always welcome – Semper Fi!!!
