    Customer Testimonial

              I found you on Home Advisors and chose three companies for quotes. Even though you were not the lowest quote I chose you because you were located in the city and since I am a business owner within the city I wanted to support other businesses. Rick was very thorough when he came to the house and went into detail to explain to me what had to happen to get my basement wall dry. I am just amazed they completed the project so quickly. Thank you for taking care of my problem.
