Lou came out to give us an estimate and outline the work needed very quickly. He worked tirelessly to obtain the permits needed from our town for this project! He was always responsive to my questions. His work was fantastic! Highly recommend A-1

These guys could not be more terrific! They were able to diagnose a problem that no other waterproofing could. American A-1 was here 5 minutes and they knew exactly what our problem was. We didn’t know it but we have iron oxide in our ground which needs to be maintained yearly. Also our french drain hadn’t been dug out deep enough to begin with so our finished basement got completely ruined. It wa...

I received four estimates for my waterproofing project. Ultimately, I chose American A-1 Waterproofing due to the personalized and positive experience I had with Lou Manzo (Manager), Maurice (Foreman) and Crew Members. From the start, Lou was generally concerned with meeting my waterproofing needs. He actively listened to my concerns and provided satisfying solutions to achieve a dry basement with...

It went great. We had water in our basement after every rain storm, but it was a complicated problem. We interviewed 5 businesses before selecting American A-1, as they were the only ones who came up with a solution for our problem. Through the whole process they were responsive and professional. The team that came and did the work was also great. They were on time, finished on schedule, were cour...

Roland's expertise and honesty saved us a ton of needless expense and allowed us to quickly determine the source of the leak. I would highly recommend this professional.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had our first basement leak in 32 years and couldn't determine where water was coming from. Several other professionals (water damage, Suez Water, plumber) thought it was high water table. After water removal and drying out of the basement, seepage was still occurring. So contacted Roland for him to inspect and give an estimate for french drains and/or foundation repair. Roland inspected and advised that he really didn't think it was outside water and before he started to tear up yard, that I should open up the basement wall where the water was seeping in from. Sure enough, found a leaking pipe from above floor baseboard heat (no water damage at site of leak) so no indication of leak.

He investigated the issue and determined it was an easy DIY job and not something I need to pay a professional like him for. Gave me a shopping list and sent me to Home Depot. Very honest!

Roland contacted us promptly and set up an appointment to evaluate within a few days. We described the water problem we were having and he looked into possible causes. After ruling out a couple of things he said that French drains were the way to go. He accommodated our schedule when setting up a date for the work to begin. Work was started on schedule and was completed over three days. The work c...

When excavation was done it was determined that the foundation wall was not as strong as it should be (not surprising for a 92 year old house). A1 recommended to strengthen the foundation by pouring additional cement. A1 took care of everything. Took an extra couple of days to complete the work but well worth it.
