They did good waterproofing work. They did exactly what they said they would do, and it was on budget. The best part was probably the sales representative. Will was a pretty cool guy, and he was really good. I chose them because he was a solid dude who was pretty funny and a straight shooter. They get an A.
AquaGuard got the job done. I'd gotten a couple of quotes, and AquaGuard was recommended by a real estate agent that lives in our neighborhood. They did the waterproofing in my basement, which took maybe two and a half days. They were very friendly and really nice, and even when it was raining outside, they were hauling out the trenches they'd drilled in my basement. The guy who came for the estimate was very nice too. I don't have any issues at all, so I would give them an A rating. It's been over a year, and everything still seems to be working.
They did the work, and we haven't had any problems with the basement at all since. They showed up on time and had good customer service, so I would definitely give them an A rating. They did a very good job.
They were great. They did waterproofing for the basement. They were professional and did what they said they were going to do in a timely manner, and I haven't had any issues since, so it's all good. They're an A company.
We did use them, and everything turned out well. They came out and installed a new drainage system in our basement. The only problem that we had was some cracks in the floor when they redid the concrete, but they came out and patched that up. If we have any other problems, we can just let them know, and they'll come out to do a bigger repair. Their customer service is good, so they get an A from me.
If I had something I wanted to do that was just a little bit different from what they had previously planned, they had no problems with that. They accommodated my requests. I chose them because they seemed to be the most knowledgeable about the work, and they were clearly qualified to do the work. Some of the other companies I had quotes from seemed like they were not being entirely honest, but I felt like I could trust AquaGuard. They waterproofed my basement, which means they put in an interior drain around the perimeter of my basement and a sump well with sump pumps and back up pumps.
We'd had a leak in our basement, so they came to try and figure out if it was related to some work they'd done previously. We chose them because of that previous work.
They were good. The guys worked efficiently while they were on the job, and they seemed to have done a good job waterproofing. I was helping my brother at his house, but I think he's been satisfied, because he hasn't had any complaints. I thought their salesman was the most frank of all of the companies we looked at, and I appreciated the directness and the honesty of the presentation. I'd give them an A.
They were straightforward, trustworthy, and timely. They did waterproofing. They were our first call.
They seemed very straightforward. They did waterproofing. Customer service was good. I'd give them an A.
