How long have you been in this line of work?
The Basement Guys® opened for business in 2000. Our staff has 100+ years of combined experience in the industry.
My basement is finished. Will it be ruined after the work is complete?
There is minimal disruption to your basement. In a majority of cases, we can revitalize a finished basement, and since we clean up all of the mess, you can use your basement as soon as work is complete.
Will my homeowner's insurance cover the cost?
Unfortunately, in most cases homeowner's insurance will not cover the cost.
I just bought a house and discovered a problem. Do I have any recourse against the previous owner?
Absolutely. The disclosure statement should have reflected the problem and if the previous owners were aware of the problem, they are obligated to fix it. You can discuss this with one of our representatives and then your attorney. Additionally, if you are selling a house, you have to fix the problem prior to selling the house.
Can work be done during the winter?
Work can be completed year round.
How long after I call will the job start?
Our response is always: "when do you need the job completed?" We are flexible to accommodate our customers' needs. We will work nights and weekends to complete your job should you need work done in a certain timeframe. In non-emergent situations or rushed timeframes, we will assess your basement and determine the course of action needed. Because we work consecutive days your basement can be finished in as little as one week.
Do you charge for estimates?
Estimates are free of charge to homeowners. All you have to do is contact us and we can schedule a convenient time for you to go over the project you would like to have work done on.
Will the waterproofing get rid of the mold?
To get rid of mold you need to eliminate the moisture. No company can guarantee the elimination of mold. However, we do eliminate the cause of mold, which is moisture, as well as address the symptoms such as odors.
