I called Gary because of his high reviews. He got back with me quickly, and was able to come check our basement out right away. Some companies wouldn’t even give me an estimate for almost 2 weeks! Gary was prompt, polite, friendly. He explained our issues in great detail. We had no idea what we[…]

Doing the before mentioned work may not completely solve your problem under your home. I must restate that most contractors only warranty the area in which[…]

The water, which follows the path of least resistant will usually find another way into the basement.
Using a waterproofing paint on the interior of the foundation walls could be the worst option to do in comparison to doing nothing. Concrete blocks and cinder blocks have hollow cavities inside them.
