How's the water getting in your basement?

Water can get into your basement in many ways, including through floor or wall cracks, through the cove joint (where the floor meets the wall), or through leaky windows. No matter how the water is getting in, all of these issues can create worse problems, like mold, mildew, rot, structural damage, and a variety of health problems.

Waterproofing involves the installation of products designed to keep water out of the basement, such as a sump pump and drainage system.

    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Sir, I was extremely pleased to be able to have Gary Hook here when they did the first analysis on my house years ago. Gary impressed us at that time with his knowledge, customer courtesy, and especially, honesty. We have asked for Gary to come back two times since then, and he has graciously done so. At the last visit, they were tied up in traffic and knew they would be running a little late. Gary was gracious enough to call us and let us know he would be just a little late. This eliminated waiting wondering where he was. Gary has always been available to answer any questions I might have. I trust his judgement. Congratulations on having Gary as an employee of your organization. He represents your company well. Sincerely, Marilyn S.

    Margaret B. of Columbia, MO

    Customer Testimonial

              They jack hammered around the outside wall of bedroom and bathroom downstairs, tore out part of the wall between bathroom and bedroom and took out about 2 feet from the floor up of each affected wall. They laid the drains, and dug the hole for the sump in the closet between the bedroom and bathroom. Unfortunately, at some point concrete dust got into the water drain pipes. This caused drainage problems which I noticed 2 days later after they had repaired the walls and laid new concrete and cleaned up the mess. They were very responsive to my call about the drain and sent out a plumber at their expense to fix the problem. I was very satisfied with their work.
