We hired Dry-Basement Waterproofing after getting several bids, and we were glad we took the time to carefully consider our options. Not all basement waterproofing companies are the same! We were very pleased with the work that Dry-Basement Waterproofing did for us from start to finish. They let us know how we could save a little money by doing some of the prep work ourselves, which we appreciated. Once they arrived, they were efficient and thoroughly cleaned up after themselves. We could tell that the end result was high quality, and we have not had a drop of water in the basement since they installed the system despite some torrential storms in recent years. The lifetime warranty also gives us peace of mind.
Dry Basement Waterproofing, owned by Mark Lucas, has remedied wet basement issues in four rental houses we own in Iowa City and Coralville, Iowa. In three houses, the system included installing drainage pipe and a sump pump. In the fourth, Lucas recommended altering the slope away from the foundation and the digging of a swale or trough to carry water away from the house.
In every case, Dry Basement Waterproofing's work ended the water problems in the basements. Recently, Iowa City experienced a deluge of five inches of rain that fell within about an hour. The flooding and damage was such that our governor declared Johnson County a disaster area. I investigated and found that none of our previously seeping basements showed even a trace of dampness after this torrent.
We are completely satisfied and impressed by Dry Basement Waterproofing's work. We would be happy to arrange a visit to one of the repaired houses for any potential client who would like to see exactly what the finished job looks like. As someone who spent hours wet-vacuuming gallons and gallons of water after every heavy rain, I am thrilled to have dry, usable space in the basement.
