I had Trotter come out for a wet storage building problem estimate. Joseph was on time, presented well, and listened to my explanation of the problem. After an eye-on exploration of the situation, he estimated the cost for me. I explained that I couldn't afford the price, and what he did next really surprised me. He explained what I could do to take on the problem myself (or with help) . He explained what I'd need, and how to do it. I'm just so impressed. Kudos to Trotter and to Joseph for caring about each customer, whether the company would be hired or not. I will recommend Trotter to anyone with water issues!

In September 2013, I obtained a few estimates to solve humidity and water seepage issues in my full finished basement. I selected Trotter because of their reputation, no pressure sales presentation and the sound plan they proposed to solve my issues. The sales consultant, was also the job supervisor. He showed up at the site each day and answered any questions, if any I had. They tented the work areas with plastic sheeting to confine the dust. All of the debris was removed when the work was completed. Everything was completed in the time frame they stated. I am extremely pleased with the results. I highly recommend Trotter Waterproofing and Foundation Repair.

Trotter did a fantastic job of replacing a substandard underground irrigation system that was installed by a former contractor with a heavy duty system that has completely eliminated the water drainage problems in our backyard. They were responsive, professional and worked with us on the schedule, payments, etc. We would definitely recommend Trotter to anyone looking to eliminate water problems on their property!!!

Used to hate rain now I love watching the water run away from my house and basement! So thankful I called Trotter and got their expert, kind, courteous, punctual, reliable help. Everyone I encountered was professional and thorough. Worth every penny I spent. Would do it again in a heart beat. If you have a wet basement they are the people to call. They were better than I'd hoped. And so clean! Definitely left my place better than they found it. I work hard for my money but I'd trust them with any job. Some of the nicest people I've ever met. Call them! You will be so happy you did. :)

I almost didn't call Trotter, because I didn't think we could afford them (given their premium reputation). I am SO GLAD I did. The system they installed was so much more comprehensive and effective at waterproofing our basement than the other 2 quotes we got. And the price was surprisingly low- much better value than I expected! The service, as expected, was top notch from start to finish- even better than we expected, actually. We could not be happier with the work Trotter did on our house, and the peace of mind we have knowing their guarantee is on our basement is priceless!

This is my second project with Trotter. They are the consomate proffessionals.The project was done perfectly, from the diagnosis,estimate,and repair. It's rare to find a company that does what they promise and stands behind their work,trotter is that company.I highly reccomend them.Great job,thanks.

Totter solved my two problems. On the exterior they regraded the soil away from the house, installed retaining walls to divert water away from the house. On the interior they installed their Dry-Tec system on all the below grade exterior walls. They did a great job on both projects and were professional, on-time and provided us with a dry lower level ready for renovation. Thanks for a great job done in a timely manner. tp2612

I was new to Atlanta last year and bought a nice bank owned home with a basement. The inspector found no problems, but the first two inch rain was a big problem. I had a company out but the young guy was very high pressure and I was having no part of that. I was speaking to my neighbor about the problem and he said "You ought to call Trotter, thats who all the old time Atlanta people use." Well I did and he was right. A very nice older gentleman came out to see about my basement. He designed a system that was able to use a gravity drain, not a more expensive pump like the other company. He also gave me options for the walls if I was going to finish the basement or not. No pressure, good experience. I hired them the next day. The crew did a great job and left everything very clean. They finished the job in just one day. Now three big rains later I'm dry and I can say my neighbor knows best.

Have used for two jobs. First was to waterproof old granite foundation basement. Has worked great for the first year plus with no problems even given the amount of rain we have had. Second, was recent to install underground drainage system for side of house with lots of runoff. Trotter showed up on time and was done in less than a day. Seems to be working so far. Pleased with professionalism of staff. DET

Trotter Company came out quickly,assessed the situation with standing water in my crawlspace within 15 minutes and explained the problem, the options and the estimated cost for each. They answered all of my questions and were honest about what really had to be done to fix the problem. Everyone I had contact with was professional, experienced and helpful. The crew did a great job and left the entire crawlspace in bertter condition than they found it - even clearing out and hauling off debris I didn't even know was under there. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Trotter Company to anyone or to use them again.
