Your home is the biggest investment you make, and waterproofing your basement is an important step to protect your investment and make the most of your basement space. A dry basement can increase the value of your home, as well as allow you to make the best use of your basement space.  

Here’s our handy checklist for what to look for when you’re choosing a company to provide basement waterproofing services.  

Are they properly licensed in your area? 

Make sure that the waterproofing company you choose is properly licensed to operate in your area and has the correct liability insurance. Any reliable company will be more than happy to provide you with the details.  

Do they offer a no-obligation inspection?  

Basement waterproofing isn’t a one-size-fits-all activity. To understand exactly what your waterproofing needs are, the waterproofing company will need to inspect your basement to identify the source of any water and how to resolve it.  

At Affordable Waterproofing, we offer a free, no-obligation inspection for every potential customer.  

Do they have good reviews?  

One of the best ways to decide if a waterproofing company is trustworthy is to check their reviews. Their social media platforms, Yelp, and local directories are all places you can look to see if their previous customers have been satisfied.  

 Do they offer a guarantee? 

For ultimate peace of mind, look for a company that offers a guarantee on their workmanship and materials. Ideally, you should be able to come to them with any problems and have them resolve the issue for you. Many companies will direct you to the manufacturer in the event of any issues – which can be a lot of hassle for you.  

We guarantee our workmanship and materials for 25 years or the entire time in which the customer holds title to the property against controlling water penetrating the entire subsoil wall and floor area where a pressure relief system has been installed. We also don’t refer you to the manufacturer if any issues arise.  

Trust your gut 

When assessing the work that needs doing, are they listening to your needs? A good waterproofing company should answer your questions fully and input you at ease. If something doesn’t feel right, then trust your instincts. 

It’s tempting to go with the cheapest quote, but don’t let price be the only factor. The lowest price isn’t always the best option, and it can be a false economy if the materials or workmanship are of low quality.
