My experience with Value Dry was absolutely positive. They waterproofed our basement, and they were extremely efficient and matter-of-fact with their plan of action. They told me what they were going to do, came in, and stuck to the plan. They did a fantastic job. I would absolutely give them an A+.
It was great. They did new French drains, waterproofed the walls, put in drains for the window wells, and installed a sump pump. They were efficient, they worked hard, and they were up front. They cleaned everything up when they were done. Very, very nice guys. They were excellent overall—A+.
