Consumer Tips for Choosing a Basement Waterproofing Company

It’s not often that a homeowner has to work with basement waterproofing companies, so when you do, you might feel a little out of your depth. Unqualified companies do exist and hiring one by mistake can lead to serious damage to your property and to your wallet. Here’s some advice to help you find a quality contractor, from our basement waterproofing team in Essex County, NJ.

  • Insured and bonded: Make sure that the waterproofing companies you are getting estimates from are fully licensed, bonded and insured to perform these services in your state. This is essential to ensure that warranties are kept intact for any equipment you may need installed and to cover you and the company in the event of unforeseen circumstances disrupting the project.
  • The company history: Be sure that you know the history of the company you are thinking of hiring – are they an established local company who’s been in the business for decades? This is a good indicator of the quality of their services and means that you can easily find other homeowners in the area for testimonials on previous jobs.
  • Warrantees: Your contractor or waterproofing company should offer you a contract that specifically offers a lifetime guarantee on the work and equipment (for example, sump pumps) that they will be responsible for. This covers you in the event of low-quality work or product defects and gives you peace of mind.
  • Reasonable pricing: When it comes to basement waterproofing, very cheap prices can indicate poor quality work or low-quality materials, which will mean your basement isn’t going to be up to the standards you need. Similarly, very high estimates can indicate that you’re getting ripped off. Make sure to get several estimates to find a reasonable, quality option who offers value-for-money. All estimates should also be free of charge.
