How to Identify a Basement Waterproofing Company you DON’T Want to Hire

Landscape Drains

Professional basement waterproofing is key to keeping your home warm, dry and structurally sound – but only if you hire the right team. Here are some signs that the company you’re interviewing isn’t up to the job, from our team of specialists in basement waterproofing in Rockland County, NY.

  • No proof of being bonded, licensed or insured in your state:  Being bonded, licensed and insured properly is essential not just for the proper management of a waterproofing company, but also to protect the consumer. Without this documentation, you could easily be left having to pay for poor quality or unfinished work.
  • No guarantees: If a basement waterproofing company won’t guarantee their work, that’s a clear warning sign that you shouldn’t hire them. The best companies in the business are proud of their warranties on the products and labor they supply, often offering a structure lifetime transferable warranty.
  • Free water egress analysis and no-obligation quote: It’s a good idea to avoid companies who will charge for quotations or who will not do a full inspection of your property before submitting a quote. Instead, partner with a company who will take a detailed look at your basement and property and who recommends a solution tailored to your needs – for free.
  • Lowest and highest cost: While an affordable price for the project isn’t necessarily a warning sign, a company that quotes far below the value of the work that needs to be done is likely not the company you want to partner with. They may be using poor quality materials, not have the right experience or do a rushed job. Similarly, don’t partner with a company that tries to pad their quote with multiple solutions that you don’t require. Always get a few quotes to compare prices so you know what your budget should be and look at the work those companies have done to see firsthand the quality of their offering.
