Homeowner Reviews

“They were very professional and did a great job.”

“I had to fix a water seepage in my basement. That area had been fixed by another company Mr. Basement earlier in 2016, who went out of business and would not therefore support their so called "lifetime warranty". Value Dry fixed it this time. Comparing the job done by Mr. Basement in 2016 vs that done by Value Dry, I would say Value Dry did a far better job. There was less dust during the process and their waterproofing method is far better. They even installed a flushout valve at one end of the installed drain pipe for cleaning purposes which Mr. Basement did not advise and did not do. Also they buried the outside pipe, which should be the way to do it, instead of Mr. Basement who left it running along the side of the house and run back to the foundation!!!! Also Value Dry removed the wooden frame at the bottom of the floor so as to properly concrete the floor below the frame. Mr. Basement did not do that, and as a result I could see they just stuffed the concrete as far as they could and there were cracks and crevices along the wall!! I should have gone with Value Dry in 2016 and avoided all the hassle.”

“The installer did a great job.”

“The salesman took the time to explain the entire process and his recommendations. He was more detailed in his evaluation than previous companies.”

“-”

“They did a wonderful job! We were very very pleased with everything. They did a wonderful job and were very neat. I didn't expect it. I thought there would be a lot more mess and dust and everything, but it was not as bad as i thought. It worked out great. They were good about preparation and keeping everything contained to the area they were working in!”

“I didn't know what expectations to have.”

“Efficiency and knowledge of product”

“workmanship & dedication”
