Tips for Hiring a Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Have you noticed cracks in the foundation of your home? Or, are you tired of patching up leak after leak in your basement? Whatever the reason, it’s time to hire a reliable waterproofing to deal with that unwanted moisture or to shore up foundation issues.

Hiring the right company for the job is essential. The company’s workmanship and experience are key in successfully resolving your soggy situation. So, before you pick the first paid ad on Google for “waterproofing companies near you,” do your homework to ensure they are a reliable business. Here are some tips to consider when hiring a basement waterproofing contractor:

Background Check: Search for the contractor at bbb.org to find any complaints and customer reviews. A general online search can also help you find other recent reviews.

Credential Check:  Is this contractor licensed, bonded, registered and insured?

Get Several Estimates: Have more than one contractor give you a bid and discuss the price in detail based on the type of building, materials required, time needed to complete the project and other factors.

Solid Warranties: How long is the warranty offered? What does it cover?

Read Before You Sign: Go through the contract to make sure everything that was promised to you is in writing and all of your questions are answered in detail. Do not sign a blank contract or pay money upfront in-full for the work.
