This is the second time that we had my basement waterproofed. The first time was 25 years ago when we first bought the home. Well you probably guessed by now that the first job failed. We are in the position to compare two different waterproofing companies and two different waterproofing procedures. We have not had the heavy rains that last flooded our basement since our construction was completed and we hope that we never do. Mid-Atlantic did an outstanding job for us. They responded to our needs quickly, started on time, did not stretch out the construction time, and as far as we are concerned did an great job. When we brought in the carpenters, and floor replacement guys they were quick to say that the condition that the Mid-Atlantic folks left our house in, made their job a lot easier. Thanks Mid-Atlantic
First of all, Mid-Atlantic did not show up at the time promised. Second of all, when they were done they left all their garbage in my yard and I had to beg them to come and get it. It sat in my yard for 3 days. They left my driveway somewhat messy - I had to clean it when they left and finally, the workers asked me to buy them lunch on one day. I had to go and get them lunch at Burger King and pay for it because I felt bad because they were hungry. They were left at the job site with no transportation and apparently no money. On their final day when they were wrapping up, they asked me for money for dinner after they were done so they could eat - I gave them money to eat because I felt bad for them because apparently they have to wait to get paid and I didn't want them to go hungry. However, on a positive note, their waterproofing technique does work - my basement has remainted dry - if you could deal with the aformentioned issues. And the workers do work unbelievably hard on the waterproofing and I mean unbelievably hard.

The basement seems much better, and it is not holding moisture like it used to. There isn't a musty cellar odor anymore, and the waterproofing does a good job of getting the water out of the walls and keeping the foundation dry.

The company's crew members were reliable, careful, courteous, and hard-working. Their work was impressive. The job was huge. They held to their schedule. They explained what they would be doing, and followed through with the actual details.

My husband and I are so pleased with the results of having this work done. We were sticker shocked when we saw the amount to have the work done, but after seeing everything that goes into installing this entire system, we realized how much it was worth it. The men that worked in our basement, are hard working, respectful, professional and they did an amazing job. It was in the mid-90's every day. The sweat was running off from them, but they never complained. They answered every question we had during the process. Yes the dust was ridiculous, but they covered and taped everything they could in plastic. My husband had to vacuum several times to get all the dust, before putting things back in place, but it was all worth it. We had several days of rain during the month of October 2016. Normally, my husband would have been down in the basement mopping up 30 to 40 buckets of water. We did not get one drop of water in the basement. It is dry and smells so good now. I just went to my pulmonary doctor in November. My breathing sounds better and I have not had to use my inhaler for months now. The musty, mildew smell is completely gone. We are thrilled on our decision to go with Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing. I highly recommend them to anyone who has a basement that smells musty, moldy, and collects water. Thank you Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing!

From the time I initially called for an appointment until the time they completed the job I had nothing but positive experiences with everyone and everything. I have already spread the word to so many people I know because I had such problems with water in my basement since purchasing my home 5 yrs ago. I did not know where to turn. They made the entire process so much easier with the financing options. They did need to come back for an issue but again, they were great and very professional and took care of it in a few hours. I highly recommend Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing to anyone with water problems.
