Recent Basement Waterproofing Reviews in Champaign
Family Waterproofing Solutions
The service I received from Family Waterproofing was phenomenal. Our basement rarely floods, but after a week or more of continual rains last summer, we got our first puddling, which kept my wife and I up in shifts for a few nights in a row working a shop vac to prevent any major damage. We called Family Waterproofing, and Ken came and looked at our situation. It was obvious from talking to him that he is extremely knowledgeable about basement flooding problems, and about the available alternatives for dealing with them. After his inspection, which included the basement, as well as areas of the exterior, he took his time to make sure I understood his findings (not only describing, but also SHOWING and diagramming the problem for me). It was clear that he was not trying to sell me an expensive system than was more than I needed (a full interior drainage system would have probably cost upwards of $6000 for us, while the final bill for the work that Ken and his crew did was less than 1/5 of that). I can't tell you how reassuring that was in convincing me that he was the right contractor for the job. I'm not even sure another contractor would have come up with the solution he did, let alone suggest it as preferable to other (more expensive and disruptive) solutions. He even worked with me on a solution that avoided having to move a basement wall (something that caused my wife and I reluctance to have the work done at first after Ken's initial consultation... more on that below). The crew that did the work was also knowledgeable, respectful, and fully explained and showed what they had done, and the office staff was responsive and actually returned phone calls in a timely manner (shockingly, something that not all contractors in this field seem to be able to do). I cannot overstate how satisfied I am in my dealings with Family Waterproofing! A little more background on the work we had done: essentially, Ken's finding was that our existing sump basin was too shallow to keep up with water from our exterior drainage tile during heavy rain (our home was built in the mid-1960s with a poured concrete foundation surrounded by exterior drainage). Because the inlet from the drainage system was too close to the bottom of the pit, our sump pump couldn't kick on until there was already significant buildup in the drainage tiles, leading to slow leaks around the perimeter of the foundation during periods of heavy, continuous rain. He initially suggested digging out our sump basin to be deeper, and installing a new, higher-volume pump. It sounded great to me, but unfortunately our basement is partially finished, and there was a bathroom wall that was too close to the pit area for Ken's crew to do their work. He told me that he'd be happy to do the work if we had the wall temporarily moved for them to have enough room, but with all the plumbing and carpentry that would involve, my wife and I decided to hold off on the job and see if we could solve the flooding problem by addressing grading issues on the exterior of the house. Fast forward 6 months without issue, and we get another period of protracted, heavy rain, and sure enough our basement floods again, even worse than before. I call Ken up to revisit the proposal he'd left us with, and ask whether it would be possible to dig a second, separate pit, rather than expanding the existing one, to get around the bathroom wall issue. We talk it over and make arrangements for him to come back and take another look at the situation (it's obvious to me that Ken takes pride in his work, and is nothing if not thorough). He sees that a cross-over pit solution will work, and can be put in place without moving any walls. Happy day! It also means that our existing pit and pump can remain and serve as backups to the new primary system. I was impressed that Ken was willing to think outside the box to get around our space constraints, while not sacrificing the quality of the solution. It remains to be seen during our next heavy rain whether the work Family Waterproofing did will completely prevent my flooding (my engineering background, along with Ken's descriptions, lead me to believe it will), but I know I made the right decision in hiring them. Short of installing a complete, very expensive new drainage system, Ken made it clear that one cannot absolutely ~guarantee~ an end to the flooding, but he made it clear, without unrealistic promises, that the odds are very much in our favor, and that, at any rate, a new deeper pit would be a necessary part of a larger system anyway should we need to install one down the road, so this will never be money wasted). I truly felt that Ken's knowledge and honesty were on my side in dealing with this stressful and potentially very expensive episode. In closing, if you have any issues with basement flooding in central Illinois, go with Family Waterproofing. At least have them out for a consultation. You'll be glad you did
Family Waterproofing Solutions
I called to get an evaluation of our crawlspace for a house built in 1975. I was concerned there might be water or some type of mildew. Ken went down and reviewed the situation. He took the time to explain how houses manage water and runoff and some possible small first step solutions that we can take on our own rather than contracting for a larger and much more expensive service. His call to our house was a lesson, a free consultation and I so appreciated his taking the time even when it didnt result in a business opportunity for the company. I would recommend anyone who does business this way and I will continue to recommend the company to anyone with basement or crawlspace isssues
Family Waterproofing Solutions
Team of 7+ people showed up on time and worked all day until the project was done by 4pm. Wow ! That was a lot of work. They were very cautious about not dirtying the interior of the house. I give them a B in professionalism because they went through all that trouble to keep everything clean and then left my slop sink filled with concrete. Luckily I caught it soon enough and was able to chisel the 1/4" stuff out before it completely set. Other then that it went very very well and my house no long smells like a swamp
Woods Basement Systems Inc
The service was friendly and very helpful during a stressful time. Get the entire job done in one visit. Very helpful advice and training on the new sump pump. Will definitely use them again in the future.
Woods Basement Systems Inc
They are located actually in Collinsville but they came out to Champaign to do the work. They did an excellent job. We had some problems about a year later so they came out and corrected it. When they came to give us an estimate, the materials were very clear and they told us what the price would be. They didn't pressurize at all. When we were ready to have it done they did what they said they would do and followed up as I said because we had problems. I think one of the sump pumps wasn't working so they came back and fixed it
Woods Basement Systems Inc
The salesperson, Brian Cox, was friendly, informative and did not have a high-pressure technique. When we decided to fill 3 cracks instead of 1, we asked for a greater discount than the original estimate. Brian checked with his supervisor and was able to offer us an additional discount. The workers arrived just a little late, but we received a phone call from the foreman to notify us of the delay. The work was done quickly and efficiently. The foreman explained everything clearly. The only thing we were unhappy with was not being warned that there would be a strong smell from the basement for about a week until the crack filler dried. We had two strong rains in the days following the work and had no water seepage through the repaired crack. I would happily use Woods again
B-Dry System of Mid-State Illinois
Both gentlemen were very friendly, nice and polite. One gentleman was a smoker, but he picked up all his butts before he left and did not smoke in either the truck, the house or near anyone. I found this remarkable and would like to be able to say thank you personally. The initial quote for the job was also very well done. The person that came out was professional, showed up on time, and explained all steps (including why the basement was leaking and how they would fix it). Over-all I would highly recommend B-Dry to anyone
Greentree Waterproofing Inc
We had a leak in the basement for a while. Had two contractors do work on it, without any improvement. The employee from Greentree quickly identified a crack and provided an estimate for the cost of sealing it. The work was done at in time and did not damage our lawn. Overall, very professional. Caveat: Have not had heavy rain since the crack was sealed -- so still waiting to see if the problem was fully fixed
Helitech Waterproofing and Foundation Repair
Superb from start to finish. Very professional, thoughtful and mindful of our property. Efficient management of time and use of space. Completed job in 1 1/2 days. The entire 4 man crew was introduced at the start of the job to both myself and my wife. They always answered any questions or concerns we had and kept us involved in all aspects of the job. Re-explained what we would and should expect with the waterproofing. Advised us as to what to watch for, what would require a call to them......how the warranty works. A++++++ operation from start to finish
Zion Basement Waterproofing
Overall, this is about as drastic of a project as you can have on your home. If you find yourself in this position - either suck it up and just call these guys or sell the house and run. If I had to do it over, I would recommend the following when working with Rick (owner) and the masonry guys (we had Larry and his crew who were excellent): 1. Understand that "Inspecting" footers does not include replacing footers. Seems obvious, but we had a bit of confusion. Luckily we didn't need them replaced. 2. Spec out and include in the quote an Egress basement window (we wanted to add a window to add a potential bedroom in the basement). 3. Clarify with Rick & others how you want the sump pump plumbed and routed outside of your basement. (They'll do whatever, its just easier to figure out beforehand). 4. Schedule a carpenter well before the project is started to come back in to rebuild basement stairs (usually those have to come out) and do any other finish work after the walls are replaced. 5. Plan to re-landscape your yard. Excavating down to your basement footers is pretty intense (1 Bobcat, 1 Excavator, and multiple dump trucks) leave lots of ruts and pretty destroy your grass

"This company was super quick to respond and came out right away to look at my issue. They went above and beyond to find the problem and provide me with several options to the solution. They also provided a a pamphlet with information on the subject making the process a lot easier to understand. I plan to call them back once I am ready as the option I want is a bit expensive for me at this time. (Welcome to home ownership) I will be giving their number out to others.
