Frequently Asked Questions

Will your system enhance the value of our home?

Positively! If you sell your house, you can offer a clean, dry basement guaranteed for the life of the structure regardless of ownership. Money spent for a permanently dry basement will pay off in an immediate increase in the market value of your home, most often with a greater increase in value than the money spent.

What do I have to do to get your company down to the lowest price?

Nothing! We don't play price games. We use a standardized price list. When we quote every job, our promise of honesty and integrity is much more than just empty words. We will provide you with a permanently dry basement for the life of the structure... all at a fair price. Our inspector will offer you options to solve the problems we find in your home, explaining each solution and the cost. We don’t believe in hard selling. We want you to be comfortable with the plan you decide on for your home.

A waterproofer tells us that they will bury drainage pipe around the outside of our house approximately 2 feet deep in order to stop some of the water before it reaches the basement. Isn't this a good idea?

The waterproofers that use this method install a corrugated drain tile where accessible. It sounds good, unless you have a driveway, deck, or front porch. Folks, you have to use some common sense when comparing systems. A good salesperson can sell you on the idea of footer drains, but they are not effective. Our systems are proven, time-tested, and – most importantly – GUARANTEED.

Do you charge homeowners for estimates?

No, nor do we feel that you should do business with anyone who does. Homeowners are never charged for a consultation with DryTech. We insist on absolute honesty and integrity. If you don't need our services we'll be the first to tell you. If you are in need of our services, we'll tell you precisely what we propose to do, how we do it, when we'll do it, and the exact cost out of our standard pricing manual. There are no hidden costs. The price we quote is the price you pay.

Does a little or occasional leakage cause foundation problems?

Not necessarily. Occasional leakage may be caused by a combination of weather conditions and poor drainage around your house. If you have water in your basement after taking ordinary precautions, then it's probably time for you to call us. A wet basement left unattended may cause considerable structural damage over a period of time. Of course, any type of basement water problem negatively impacts the value of your home, to say nothing of its livability. Our 15 years of experience indicates that most small water problems progressively worsen. Our basement waterproofing system is designed to eliminate the water pressure around your foundation and from under you floor, effectively removing the source of the basement leakage problems.

Is your method complicated?

No. The logic of our basement waterproofing system is simple. To fully appreciate it, however, you need to understand what is causing your basement to leak. We encourage you to ask questions until you fully understand the problem and the solution we are offering.

Why can't I just repair the cracks and put liquid sealer on the walls?

It simply isn't effective. We would not do it under any circumstances and neither should you. Fortunately, this unsuccessful method is rarely used today.
