Basement Waterproofing Solutions

My dad was my mentor and hero and will be forever missed. In 1966, at age five, I started working for him. He fired me because I couldn’t stop fidgeting while holding a drop light on his work area. Five minutes later he hired me back and the rest was history.

Since 1961, our family has been providing comprehensive solutions for leaking basements throughout New York and New jersey. Not many companies can say they have 3 generations of waterproofing experience behind them. All our work is performed by in house crews and not sub-contracting crews. Some waterproofing companies are just a sales force with great sales people and little knowledge. Here at Basement Waterproofing Solutions, our family has years of experience. When hiring new employees, we look for individuals that will have the same passion about our business as we do!!! Quite often, at the completion of a job, a foreman will send picture text messages of his job to myself and other crew members showing off their work. These messages are always followed with great complements of encouragement. This is the passion we look for and love. Our warehouse stocks all the materials we need, including a significant supply of sump pumps so we are full prepared during the worst hurricanes. Our suppliers are dedicated to us during these events and assure us we will always have what we need.

If you prefer to be educated about our products and services without the high pressure of a sales person, then you came to the right place. Our main concern is the health of your home and providing you with the knowledge and direction to make an intelligent decision so your home will be a healthy dry environment for you and your family.
