    Not sure of final result yet. So far so good.

    0.50 Loren M. Saint Paul, MN

    I spent $1,560.00 on the south side of my house. Original treatment in May 2016. Second treatment spring of 2017. John told me when he did the first treatment, that it could take three treatments. The basement is still wet and John has refused to answer my calls for the last three years. I have the original work order/estimate that John quoted me dated 4/27/16 and it is marked lifetime warranty. My question is, what resource do I have? The next step is to check with my lawyer!

    Response from Company:

    Loren, sorry to read that you felt in necessary to complain about our service, from our email exchanges from the spring of 2019, you mentioned that the area had gotten much better but you still had a damp spot. I asked some questions and It took over five months for you to respond mentioning that you filled the bottom of an egress window with dirt up to the trim, WHICH WE DON?T RECOMMEND. This allows surface water to go directly through the window or behind the trim. You didn?t respond to the follow up email until we got a call over the 4th of July Weekend this year. Unfortunately we were very short staffed with the holiday and it took a few extra days to scheduled your project and perform additional work on the foundation, which we did in July. We also noted some above-grade corrective actions that need to be taken by the homeowner to ensure the ponding water in his yard is no longer an issue.

    So far, so good..... still waiting for another huge storm to really test it, but they will return and fix it if it didn't work in two very difficult spots. Their care of my yard during the instillation was awesome.

    John was very friendly and answered all my questions. was told what work would be done and the pricing. free estimate. Came out to do the work when he said they would be out. Work done on time and efficiently. Cleaned up after they were done. Recommended Great Lakes to my neighbor who has water in basement.

TRY THIS FIRST!!!!


    John was late to my home, but it did not pose a problem for me. He was patient and answered all of my questions about the process. He also explained what he was doing and how it was going to work. He cleaned up after he was done and did not leave me with a mess. Overall I am very pleased with the process. I would recommend him to others in my situation.
