              The sales rep was forthright in his presentation. He knew that by budget only allowed for one immediate service. And he did not try to pressure me into something that I would have liked, but could not afford!

    Customer Testimonial

              To Whom it May Concern; I am writing in regards to the work done in my basement by your wonderful group of guys. I work in a business where getting positive feedback doesn't happen all that often but I know it is a good feeling when it DOES happen because I have been there a time or two. I have to tell you that I have nothing but positive feelings towards your company from the first time your sales rep, Steve Purdon, came out to give me the estimate. He was very nice and professional. He explained things in detail about what would take place (and how noisy it would be). He answered all of my questions without hesitation. He is a very nice gentleman who, even after his part was done, stopped back by during the work to see how the crew was doing because he knew it would be a difficult job. Now enter your work crew headed by Ryan Watson. Also included in the crew were Allen Casson, Pete Schaffer, Brian Zimmerman, and Justin Everitt. You have a group of very hard-working, courteous, nice young men in your company. They are organized and they keep a clean (or as clean as possible) workspace, sweeping up each day after that already put in a VERY hard days work so that if I had to go downstairs for anything, I would track the least amount back up the stairs. They got the job done efficiently and I was amazed at how much they got done in one day each and every day. I never heard a negative comment come out of any mouth. They were just as nice at the end of every day as they were in the beginning, even though they had to be completely exhausted. They still left with a smile on their faces and a promise to be back and do it all over again the next day and they never failed to live up on their promises. In essence, I just want to tell you what a great group of people you have working for you who don't slack for even a minute. I was very impressed and I will definitely recommend your company to anyone that needs a "basement doctor" in the future. I wasn't sure who to call and I have to admit that I called a few people because of that. I didn't talk to anyone else in person and I stopped looking after I met with Steve. Thank you for making a very bad thing (flooded basement) turn into a very positive experience and please pass on to all the people mentioned in this letter my sincere thanks and appreciation. Sincerely, Debra

    Customer Testimonial

              Steve came out last week to give an estimate to see what it would cost to have part of my basement done. I thought it was worth a phone call because he did such an outstanding job I didn't feel like he was pushy at all he just gave me the facts and did a great job of just teaching me what needed to be done. I felt like that job needed to be recognized because he did a really great job, and I felt like that was worth a phone call. He should be recognized for that.

    Crawl space moisture resolved in Georgetown, OH

    A Georgetown, Ohio homeowner had concerns about moisture in the crawl space and was interested in encapsulation.  He met with Steve, a Certified Inspector, who recommended CleanSpace Encapsulation System, along with SilverGlo Crawl Space Insulation, and Rim Tight Rim Joist Insulation, and a SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System is installed to resolve this problem for the homeowner.

    In these pictures you can see the before and after of this crawl space.  Before the crawl space had little to no protection from moisture seeping into the crawl space.  Now with CleanSpace Encapsulation System the crawl space has a vapor and mold proof liner and the SmartSump will drain any water that seeps under the CleanSpace liner out of the crawl space.

    We used the Helical Pier System to repair a foundation in Owensville, Ohio.  A corner of the foundation was settling causing cracking in the outside brick of the home.  Once the Helical Piers were installed we were able to stabilize the foundation and also resolve the cracks in the brick.

    EverLast Wall Restoration Panels are installed on the bottom portion of the wall.  These panels are made of cement board textured with a mold-proof, washable Vinyl finish.  These panels will not be ruined by basement moisture or water from a plumbing leak.  These panels, and plastic trim, never need to be painted and will look great in the basement for many years.

    We used the PowerBrace System to stabilize a wall that was bowing.  A PowerBrace is a steel I-beam that is secured tightly against the failing wall.  Brackets are attached to the floor and the floor joist.  There is an adjustable bracket that can be tightened over time to potentially reverse the wall failure.

    We have installed a RockWell Window Well and Window in a home in Wyoming, Ohio.  In the before picture, you can see the home previously had glass block windows.  By installing the RockWell Window Well and Egress Window, the homeowner now has an easy way of exit during an emergency.  The RockWell provides a window well large enough to be able to climb out in an emergency and from the inside looks like a rocky landscape.

    WaterGuard resolves water seeping in at the base of the wall in West Harrison, IN

    A West Harrison, Indiana homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the basement at the base of the floor.  The homeowner met with Steve, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is installed to resolve the problem that the homeowner was having with water intrusion.

    WaterGuard is our patented perimeter piping system used to intercept the water that is seeping into the basement.  The water is collected into the WaterGuard and then drained into the sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement.  The WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System will keep the basement dry and help the homeowner to have a usable space that can be used for storage or extra living space without worries of water intrusion.  

    In these pictures, you can see that the water is seeping into the basement between the wall and the floor.  Now with the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System installed, the water will be intercepted by the WaterGuard and pumped out of the basement.  This will allow the homeowner to use the basement for storage or extra living space without worries of water intrusion.
