“Full explanation of work to be done including why and expected result. Also advised of what would eventually occur if work not done or partially done.”
“I can't rave enough!”
“I should have called U.S. Waterproofing 1st. Trying to save money I ended up paying double. The work the first contractors did not solve the foundation problem I had. U.S. Waterproofing stopped the leaking 100%. Would recommend to anyone.”
“U.S. Waterproofing was both professional and expedient. They solved my problems with leaking vertical foundation cracks and made a recommendation on how to repair an interior stairwell that was leaking at the base of the stair and landing. All problems were resolved in a timely and efficient manner.”
“I am a general contractor and I use them all the time for foundation cracks.”
“I did have a small problem with the clean-up ( it was a 90%+ day) I was more than happy with the quick response and the companies willingness to go above and beyond to rectify the issue in a more than timely manor. If you choose U.S. Water Proofing, I am certain you will be more than satisfied with their work and have a new appreciation toward the workman's mastery and performance.”
“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.”

“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+.”
“They took care of some waterproofing by repairing a crack in the foundation, and the technician did a very good job. We got three different companies to look at the work and bid on it, and U.S. Waterproofing was the most positive, which is why we chose them. They're an A+.”
“The service was great. We used U.S. Waterproofing years ago to do foundation repair in the basement. Everything is holding up very well, so they deserve an A+.”
“They did foundation work on the bottom corner of our house. It was a positive experience because the work was done, and I have no complaints. I would use U.S. Waterproofing again. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did another job for me in a different section of the house, and I'm very pleased with it. Everything has held up very well. The technicians were really good. I chose U.S. Waterproofing over other companies because I had used them before. I'd recommend them. They're an A+ company.”
“I had a crack in my foundation, so they sealed it. It was good, quality work, and it has held up pretty well, considering all the rain we've had. I'd give them an A.”
“We had a foundation crack, and U.S. Waterproofing appears to have fixed the problem. They get an A.”

“U.S. Waterproofing filled one crack in the foundation, the quality of work was OK.”
“I used U.S. Waterproofing when we bought the house about two years ago because there were some cracks in the foundation. They came out to give me a quote and explain the process, and it was really simple and fast. I would give them an A.”

“U.S. Waterproofing did fine. I was satisfied, and I would use them again. My son recommended them to me. They get an A.”
“The work U.S. Waterproofing did was all right—it seems like the problem is solved. I have to assume they knew what they were doing and did the right job. I'd used them before 20 years ago. I'd give them an A grade.”
“We were pleased with the work, and they cleaned up after they were finished. I would recommend U.S. Waterproofing—they're an A.”
“I've always been happy with U.S. Waterproofing's work. We've used them a few times. Originally, they fixed a crack in the foundation and filled it up. A couple of years later, we had them put on some window well covers, which are strong and fit well. They're good people. They're A+.”
“U.S. Waterproofing did a terrific job. The price they gave me is the price they actually charged me, and the guy they sent out was wonderful. I couldn't have asked for anything better.”
“We've been very satisfied with them. They came on two different occasions about a year apart, and they remembered what we'd asked them about before and what the problem was. They told us different tests we could run so that we could feel better about what was being done. They were very honest with us. I've given their name to several of my neighbors.”
“I used U.S. Waterproofing, and I had a positive experience with them. There hasn't been a problem since they fixed it. The quality of the work has been holding up for me. I would give them an A+.”
“U.S. Waterproofing stopped our leak and repaired a couple of cracks in the foundation. The quality of the work was good. The workers and cleanup were very good. The customer service when I called in was very good—no problem. I would use them again. They get an A+ from me. They were good.”
“I've had no problems with the foundation cracks that they patched up. I had some foundation cracks, they filled them, and I have no problem with leakage anymore. The workers who came out were great. They did not leave anything lying around; they were good. Everything went well—A+.”
“U.S. Waterproofing was here when they said they were going to be, and they did what they said they were going to do. I had a crack in the foundation, and water was coming in when it rained, so they fixed that. They had to waterproof some of the side of the foundation where it was leaking, and they cleaned up after the job was finished. I'd give them an A+.”
“I haven't had any water problems since U.S. Waterproofing came. We haven't had a real heavy rain, but I'm being optimistic anyway. There was a crack in the foundation. I don't know how they repaired it, but they did something with it on the outside of the house, and it hasn't leaked since they did it. The people who came out to do the job were very pleasant and informative. The real test will come with the heavy rain, but as of right now, I would grade the company an A+.”
“I've had U.S. Waterproofing out here three times. I keep using them because they did good work the first time, and that's why I had them back the second and then the third. I would certainly use them again. They fixed cracks in the foundation. If I were to grade this company, I would give them an A+.”
“U.S. Waterproofing's quality of work is good. I recommend them, and I would give them an A.”
