HOW DO I FIND A GOOD WATERPROOFING CONTRACTOR?
There are several key components to finding a good waterproofing contractor as everyone knows not all contractors are alike or built the same. Everyone claims to be the best but how do homeowners really know? This project is one you only want to have to do once ever in the lifetime of your home, so the job must be performed flawlessly and have the critical products needed to make it a successful project.
When you search for a basement water proofer on Google you will get many different companies listed all claiming to be the best. Companies like Home Advisor, Angie’s List, Craft Jack, Porch, and Thumbtack do a lot of the homework for you. These companies screen and background check for licensing and screen for accreditation most importantly they check the reviews to assure they are legitimate. The companies will often call the customers who left review to check accreditation. Most of them also have an award system to the contractors who are the most diligent, courteous, and most responsive to their clients. For example, Thumbtack has a merit system that awards these practices by honoring them with a Top Pro status. Which only 4% will achieve.
Basement waterproofing as a whole is a specialty trade and there is a lot of missed or wife’s tales that go along with the industry. Prices may range extremely different depending on the approach, services offered, and company. So, with that being said we have to be extremely cautious with who we do business with again that being said this is a job you only want to do once ever in the lifetime of your home. Other factors include the age of your home, condition of your foundation, and type of foundation that you have. There are 3 major types of foundation stone which we saw in a lot of metropolitan areas but not exclusive too, Cinder block which was heavily used in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90s in residential construction, and poured concrete which is very common now in new construction. So first please identify the type of foundation that you have this can be done watching a Youtube or looking at pictures online.
Now that you have identified where to find waterproofing companies and also what type of foundation you have you can move forward on finding a reputable company. Now we can find a good waterproofing company. First make sure your inspector is knowledgeable and qualified it is always a good idea to ask for references and also what his experience and background is in. Do all your research and really find out who you are doing business with. Then you will have to compare products, pricing, and plans.
