Ways to Know a Good Waterproofing Company when You See One

Have you had to repair a wet basement more than once? Then it just might be time to call in the professionals. Most of the do-it-yourself waterproofing techniques as promising as they sound are sadly ineffective. Some of the common mistakes people make include using waterproof paint over existing paint-it will not work.

It takes an expert to be able to quickly pinpoint what the source of your water problem is and know exactly how to handle it. So, with the wide range of waterproofing companies available, how do you make the right choice?

1. A good waterproofing company has a license

The waterproofing company you go for must be properly licensed. This will give you some assurance that they have at least a certain minimum quality requirement and cannot just disappear with your money having done little or no work. It will also help you if in bringing action against the company if you discover later that the quality of service provided is below that expected.

2. A good waterproofing company is cost effective.

As with any other household expense, price is very important. Cheaper does not always translate to better, but make sure you are not being conned either. Weigh the work to be done against the estimates given and select the company that gives you value for your money.

3. A good waterproofing company can give references

Ask the company to give you references- customers who have hired their services before. This is useful in two ways. The reaction of the company to your request will speak volumes about their customer relations. In addition, it is only a person who has had contact with the company that can tell you some things about them such as whether the workers are friendly, how respectfully they will treat your home and whether they finish the work on time

4. A good waterproofing company lives long

This may not be a very reliable guide but it is usually assumed that a company that has survived long in the service industry is one that satisfies its customers. This does not mean that you cannot try out newer companies; they may also have their advantages especially when it comes to using modern techniques.

5. A good waterproofing company inspects before giving estimates

A good waterproofing company will always inspect your house before giving an estimate. They will need to check for the source of water, assess the construction of the basement and determine the extent of the water problem before they can figure out the amount of repair work that needs to be done and thus calculate how much it will cost.

6. A good waterproofing company is sufficiently equipped

The company you should choose is that which has all the equipment needed to do the job no matter how complicated it is. The company should also have experience and expert knowledge in modern techniques of waterproofing. A company that can offer only the conventional methods just will not do.
