Custom Solutions: One Size Does NOT Fit All

Custom Solutions: One Size Does NOT Fit All - Image 1

Have you ever asked a contractor, “How much will this cost me?” only to be met with a flat number like, “$10,000 either way”? This is a refrain of many contractors. The quote given has nothing to do with the specific issues that plague your home. You can’t gauge the scope of the work based on the price you’re given because it’s a “flat rate”. It’s not like that with us.


Basement flooding and crawl space nightmares tend to lend themselves to finding a quick solution that brings short-term relief—make the bad water go away! Our goal is to always provide you with a lifelong solution that brings you peace of mind. We start by doing a full inside and outside inspection to determine the extent of your issues. Here’s a fun fact: in addition to their laptops, our system design specialists have boots, a flashlight and other gear to get into your crawl space. They are going to take photos not just inside your home, but outside too. They will sit down with you afterward and show you what they found and discuss your goals and concerns. The system design specialist will then create a complete drawing of your project after the inspection that will take your exact home into consideration. They will talk you through possible solutions and give you a custom proposal no matter how big or small the job is. You can then decide to up or downscale the project based on your needs. We’re going to put everything on the table, and you can decide what’s right for you.


With us this meeting is a consultation. We’re not in your home to make a hard sell or back you into a corner. Our goal for the past 40 years is to educate you to make your home as safe and as comfortable as possible. We want to eliminate the anxiety you feel every time you walk into your soggy, leaky basement.


The ripple effect of having your home done right with us is that your home now contributes towards creating a better neighborhood and community. As a locally owned and operated business for the past 40 years, we take great pride in being part of that ripple.

Contact us for your free inspection and fix it now, fix it right and fix it with us.
