One visit was to seal four new cracks, and another was to seal a crack that had reopened after being repaired in 1996—that was under a lifetime warranty. My advisor, Jerry Meadow, was so helpful in quoting the new cracks, and the warranty department was so useful in helping me to get service for prior work. They were flexible with my schedule, the workers did a great job, and were very knowledgeable.
Their work seemed to be very reliable. I felt every step of work was done professionally, and the working crews are very skilled.
U.S. Waterproofing repaired a foundation crack and upgraded a sump pit. The sales rep was wonderful, and the people who did the work were polite, neat, and responsible.
U.S. Waterproofing repaired two cracks in my basement wall. Beautiful job—they have been our go-to waterproofing people since 1977, and we have no more leaks.
U.S. Waterproofing removed old sump pumps and installed a Boss 4000 dual pump. The estimating and installation process went extremely smoothly, and all involved appeared to be truly expert in what they did.
Several interior basement foundation cracks were filled. Everything about the procedure was fully described—there were no unexpected surprises. Best of all, after the rainiest June in Illinois history, we had no leaks.
U.S. Waterproofing filled a crack in our basement wall, and the quality of the work was excellent. I found them from the Best Pick Reports. I would grade them as an A.
They prevented water from coming back into my basement, and everything has held up great. The technicians were very good. They were done the same day. I'd used them before to fix some other foundation problems, and I had a positive experience back then. I would recommend U.S. Waterproofing, and I'd give them an A+ rating.
The guy from U.S. Waterproofing was very good. He did waterproofing, but he also did a little bit of foundation work—he filled a crack. Everything is holding up fine, so they earned an A+.
We found a crack in the foundation that leaked. They were efficient and did what they were supposed to do, and they honored their contract. I'd give U.S. Waterproofing an A+.
