We are so happy that we got an estimate from Armored Basement Waterproofing. Prior estimates from other supposedly reputable companies wanted to sell us a sump pump drainage system. After his inspection, Gary found the leak to be from around our basement window. He recommended we repair the mortar of the window well, along with resealing the caulk around the window. A much easier fix that we could...

I was very pleased with the service that I received today. I called Armored Basement Waterproofing to look at my basement, since I had some mineral deposits on the floor & wall. Jay came out to the house within the timeframe that I was told when making the appointment & looked at my basement. I really appreciated his honesty- he could have tried to tell me that I needed to spend a lot of money to ...

We hired Armored two years ago to eliminate water leaking into our basement due to the lack of a drain at the bottom of an exterior stairwell. Although the source of the problem was pointed out to Jay during his initial visit, he insisted that replacing the drainage system running along the perimeter of our foundation would eliminate the problem. Based on Jay's assurance, we agreed to have Armored...

Sir, I think there has been some confusion. I spoke with the team about this review and was not able to confirm your points. we have left a message about your stairwell and to talk about our recommendations. We are happy to help. the very small landing area in your basement exit may limit your options, but we can definitely install a drain inside the door if you have leaks through the door. I look...

I requested an estimate through an email. I never heard back from anyone via phone. All I got was an email stating the name and number of an structural engineering that would cost me $250 or $350 to look at my basement. I did have 2 other companies come and tell me I didn’t even need waterproofing. Saved me in a lot of money, no thanks to this company.

[Member Name Removed], I'm sorry for this. In your message to us you stated that your walls were "buckling." We assumed that meant significant structural failure which would require a structural engineer before doing any waterproofing work. After recommending the engineer, we didn't hear back from you. I feel like such a strong negative review is unwarranted when we are only following building saf...

They came out to determine the cause & fix for my watery finished basement & for an estimate for repair. I had three plumbing group and four foundation groups who told me it was a foundation issue & repair would cost quite a bit. Armored Basement Waterproofing inspected my basement & cut into my drywall under the sink. He found a broken connecting joint where one pipe entered another pipe for drai...

I had a basement flood in early July, Jay came by the house to do an assessment and was very honest and upfront. We discussed what he would do to alleviate the issue (exterior grading / exterior swale / Stairwell canopy), services which his company did not actually preform. He said it wouldn't make sense to install / modify the interior sump pump system, and that would not solve the issue. I enjoy...

The workman were nothing short than exceptional. Working with the owner however was nothing short of disastrous. Upon inquiring as to when the workers would show up for work I was met with a barrage of "what for and why nots" the owner has no idea as to the scope or requirements of the project and was looking to me to explain the contract that his sales staff had previously coordinated. He nearly ...

Moved into a renovated 1924 Craftsman home in Baltimore with a lovely finished basement and, within a month, the basement flooded numerous times in May 2018. The wood floors cupped and the padding was drenched. Got 4 estimates and felt most comfortable with Jay at Armored Basement Waterproofing. He didn't give me the sales pitch, nor recommend the most expensive repair as the other companies did. ...
