“The only thing that weird was that the guy who estimated the job said it would be a one-person job. When the installer came he said that it was a four-person job. He so happened to bring another guy with him but they were there all day. I took 12 hours to do the job. He was very mad because the guy misrepresented the level of work that had to be done. They had to move the HVAC system to install the drain. It could have gone a lot smoother.”

“They installed a french drain for me and the first time they installed it was done incorrectly so my basement flooded twice.”

Review by
07/21/2017

“They did the work at time at the price they quoted and they didn't make much of a mess at our place. They did a waterproofing job. It's fine. We didn't have them do any of the drywall work. It was just foundation. I'd give them an A.”

Response by Carolyn Gooden
Thank you for the A, we appreciate you taking the time to write a review.

“The salesman was great. He came out on a weekend evening because we had so much water, and he drove very far to get there. He was very conscientious and then the workmanship was good. They were quick, and they cleaned everything up. So, it was a very good experience. It was a waterproofing job. I'd give the overall experience an excellent rating. I think they really did a good job. I would highly recommend them. I think I've already recommended them.”

Review by
07/21/2017

“Value Dry did my French drain. The customer service made them outstanding to me. They were friendly. I liked their work. They did waterproofing. They broke up a concrete basement, put French drains in, and then put concrete on top of it. I was overall satisfied with everything that was completed. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/21/2017

“We really leave all their stuff down here. A whole side of the house spread because they should have had the drain out of the house. That definitely needs to be redone. This was a waterproofing job. The customer service was also negative because they broke the sink downstairs. We had to go back and forth and they finally gave me $2000. I'll give them a D-.”

Review by
07/21/2017

“They were on time. They were very clear in the process, in explaining the process. They did waterproofing. It was a sump pump. They did waterproofing and installed a sump pump. Everything is looking good. The only issue I have that was a concern to me was they didn't put the carpeting back the way it was. So, I still have a gap between the baseboard and the rug. There was a space. That was really my only concern. I'd give them a B-.”

Review by
07/21/2017

“It was fine. They did the waterproofing. It was a little bit of high pressure on the sales side. There was a lot of, 'Oh, you'd better do it right now.' That was a little weird. I'd give them a B. There's nothing that really stands out.”

Review by
07/21/2017

“They waterproofed the basement. Everything looks good. I'd give them a B+.”

“My experience was very positive. There was some dampness on the walls, but nothing on the floor. They did a great job. They were in and out of here in one day, and they were very nice. They deserve an A+. I really think they were great, and I have no complaints. ”

Review by

“It looks good, and the work was done great. They did waterproofing; I had some damage under there. They get an A from me.”

Review by

“They did an encapsulation for the basement. They were a reasonable price and offered a good service. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“It was a very positive experience, and we were very pleased with their work. They did the whole basement. They dug it all up and transformed the basement. I think they’re an A overall.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“Value Dry dug up the footer and put in a new sump pump. They basically delivered on time and told me exactly what was happening, as it was happening. I'd say they get an A. Everything was good, except there was one issue. Where the concrete was used in the footer, some areas had cracked, but no water had seeped out.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“My experience was absolutely positive. They waterproofed our basement. They were extremely efficient and matter-of-fact with their plan of action. They told me what they were going to do, came in, stuck to the plan, and they were out ahead of schedule. They did a fantastic job. I absolutely give them an A+. ”

Review by
07/27/2016

“We had a drain that was not draining, so we had them fix that. They were so clean, smiley, kind, and good. I'd give them an A, though I'm going to have to see how recommending them goes after it rains really hard a few times. We have a drought going on, and there's been no rain to speak of for a long time.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“We had two problems, so I have to separate Value Dry out from the problem in the basement. Basically what we were getting was groundwater and flooding coming in the basement. What Value Dry did was to build up the top step and provide a barrier against the water coming in. So they did cement work.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“It was a pretty positive experience. They put in a sump pump and a window well. I wouldn't recommend them, though, because in hindsight, I don't really think I needed a sump pump. I can't really say they did excellent work, but what they did was alright. It was good, but there were slight issues across the board.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“Value Dry did a French drain installation. I like that when I discovered a problem, they fixed it. I’d give them a B rating. They accidentally pulled out and concreted over the only existing drain in the basement that I use when I wash the floor. They had to come back, find a new piece to go in it, take away the concrete, and redo it.”

Review by
07/27/2016

“I think, overall, it was OK, but they really pushed us, and the price was really high for waterproofing in the basement. I didn't like the price and that they really pushed for the contract. It actually cost much more than I guess I wanted. It was higher than other companies. I think my overall experience was in the middle, maybe like a C or a B- grade. I think they actually sub-contract. I feel, overall, it was still kind of OK, but I did expect more because the price I paid. I think they sub-contracted to some other small company to do the work.”

Review by
07/26/2016

“Value Dry was great. They did new French drains, waterproofed the walls, put in window wells, did the drains for the window wells, and put in a sump pump. They were efficient and worked hard. They were up front. They cleaned everything up when they were done, and they were very, very nice guys. I would say they were excellent overall, an A+. ”

Review by
07/26/2016

“They did waterproofing of a basement, added an extra sump pump, and did some other stuff about a year ago. They cleaned up well. I'd give them an A rating. I would recommend them.”

Review by
07/26/2016

“They did waterproofing for us, and so far it's an A. I have a future job scheduled, but for the job from last year, their grade would be an A+. We've already recommended them to others.”

Review by
07/26/2016

“It was definitely a positive experience. They put in a French drain and a sump pump. I give them an A grade.”
