When I bought my house, it was a typical hot, dry summer in southwest Ohio. I didn't realize the extent to which the basement leaked until after I'd signed the... read more papers and closed on the sale. If it rained for more than 15 minutes, I was in the basement with a bucket and mop, cleaning up water from from five or more spots. It got to be a very depressing situation.
After doing some research, I called Everdry. They explained my options for fixing the basement and making it a useful, safe part of my house again. It was a big job, and not cheap, but it needed to be done. Everdry helped me with financing and then got to work. They installed a perimeter drain system with a sump pump, extended the downspouts outside, and improved the exterior grading to pull water away from the house.
The whole thing was done in about four days. The crew was professional, courteous and respectful of my property. Those guys worked hard.
It turned out to be a great decision to fix the basement. No matter how much it rains, it's dry down there. After about 18 years, the system still works perfectly. I've had Everdry out to do some additional waterproofing and replace the pump as part of my warranty. They've been a pleasure to work with over the years. I'll keep renewing that warranty, too.
