If it is finally time to put the days of flooded and wet basements behind you and waterproof that important area of your home, you are making the right choice. You’ve got a harder decision to make now, though. This is not a DIY kind of job! You must find a suitable basement waterproofing contractor since you’re putting your faith in them to install the right drainage systems and perform the basement waterproofing job expertly, quickly, and without breaking the budget. This is a lot to ask, and the right team of contractors can do it. Read on for a few tips to help you in this search!
Check their Reviews and Credentials
As you begin to look for contractors, start with their online reviews. While it is true that those who are unhappy with their service are a lot more likely to post an online review site than those who are happy, contractors will usually also pick only the best reviews to place on their websites. By looking at both, you should be able to get a bigger picture of older customers. If you have the ability, you should consider reaching out to some reviewers to ask them about their experiences. Make sure you ask about things like staying in budget and timeline estimates, as well as how the contractors were to work with. Once you begin reaching out to contractors for references, then reach out to them, too. You should also ask them for their credentials and then actually verify them with the right agencies or boards.
Speak to The Contractors in Person
For the most part, contractors cannot and will not give a quote without coming out to look at the project for themselves. Make sure that you’re there and you take the time to actually talk with the contractors. Some of what they have to do will be measuring and note taking that you could watch, but you do not necessarily have to have questions all about. But once that is completed, make sure you have some project questions and details prepared, including about estimations, their concerns about supply chain issues, their insurance and credentials and COVID protocols, and anything else that worries you about the waterproofing project.
