Wet Basement Somers, CT? Basement Waterproofing Contractors in Somers, CT

Lack of proper drainage causes pooling water around your basement which leads to hydrostatic pressure on the walls. When left unattended this pressure can result in foundation damage, causing foundation cracks, bowed walls, and foundation settlement. If this has happened to you, it is time for a basement waterproofing specialist to eliminate your wet basement problems. Use these five tips to make sure you hire an excellent contractor at a good price.

1. Before The Basement Waterproofing Contractor Starts, Check Their Insurance and License. Do some due diligence before hiring the waterproof contractor to repair the wet basement in Somers. Ask them to provide proof of liability insurance and workers compensation insurance. One must is the Department of Consumer Protection in Connecticut to verify the contractor’s license. The state has an online license look up. Look online, do they have a web site, are they listed on Yelp, what are the reviews on Goggle Places? Give the contractor the minimum down payment they will accept.

2. Check To Make Sure It Was Fixed. The contractor may say he has the experience to do this project properly, or will warranty the work, but make sure it is truly fixed. Water tests are affective but they may waste a lot of water and time to find the exact source of a water leak; instead, check your basement after a rain storm to be sure you have a dry basement. Don’t forget to have a signed warranty from the basement waterproof contractor

3. Listen To Your Gut When Hiring Somers Basement Waterproofing Contractor. If the offer seems to good to be true, it often is. What are some red flag signs? A low ball quote. Are they telling you “to give you this price we have to do the work today” (unless it is an emergency repair). Asking for cash for payment, or not putting payments in writing. Trust your instinct. Is one of the contractors just rubbing you the wrong way? Online reviews can be a good way to judge your neighbors experiences with the wet basement contractor.

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
