Description Of Work: Mold forming in the basement
Comments: Excellent! My fiance was very concerned with some mold growing in the basement. She is very detailed and had scheduled 4 companies to come out to give us their opinion and what is needed to fix the problem. I am so thankful that the 1st company that came out was A-1 Indiana Waterproofing, Inc. because that is the only company we needed to meet! The owner, Wayne Roberts was extremely well informed, and did a complete evaluation of our basement. Wayne told us that there was no problem with our basement structually and our sump pump was working just fine. He gave us helpful tips and remedies to cure the mold on our free time. He even went thru a list of different molds and how each one affects us; however the mold that was growing was not a harmful type but needed to be removed. Basically, the mold that was forming was due to poor circulation and a dire need of a dehumidifier. Also, we had a lot of card board boxes in the basement in which the mold was feeding off of and Wayne said to purchase containers to store our miscellaneous items. Wayne recommended a few high quality dehumidifers (not the one you purchase at Lowes) and helped us narrow down the best one to purchase. The problem is fixed and I have a happy fiance . . . which makes a happy Craig Ramsay! Let me tell you, there are so many companies out there that take advantage of peoples worries and charge them a lot of money for something they don't need. A-1 was upfront and honest! I wanted to give Wayne a big hug (I didn't) because when my fiance is on a mission she pulls the trigger and spends money like it's growing on a tree! If we would've had any other company come by for their opinion, the odds were they would've take advantage of our worries and charged us an arm and a leg for something was easy to correct inexpensively. If you ever have a need for water proofing or concerns about your basement, call A-1! They are one of the most honest companies that I've ever met. Thanks again A-1. You definately have all of my referrals!

Description Of Work: A-1 installed new exterior drainage lines for 3 pump lines coming out of our basement wall. They excavated under our driveway, placed new pipes underground and connected them to a water drainage. When I called them on a Friday they scheduled to meet with us the following day. Dell, came and explained what needed to be done. He gave us the estimate the same weekend and a week later they started the job. Also, Wayn, the owner of the company, met with me and review their plan, how it was going to be done and how long it would take and everything happened how he told me it would be. I would totally use their service again. Very satisfied. We interviewed 3 companies and we felt A-1 was the most professional plus they had great reviews.

Indianapolis, IN 46278
Description Of Work: A1 Waterproofing repaired a foundational problem with a very old house. They build a new block wall, installed a water drainage system outside to direct water away from the house and placed some new rough casting on the existing foundation.
Comments: We started the relationship with A1 a few years ago when obtaining quotes to repair a crumbling basement/cellar wall. They were patient and explained everything in detail, provided quotes and followed up. The decision to delay the work was made at that time. After realizing the problem wasn't going away and it wasn't going to fix itself (something the owner told me then), the decision was made to have them begin work. Within a few days of contacting them, they began the process of reviewing the problem again and suggesting a solution. Building a new wall and installing a system to help drain water away from the house was the solution. Within a week, work was started and completed. Everything looks great! I'm pleased with the outcome and have a new level of comfort knowing the home has been saved from further damage.

Description Of Work: Installation of a new Gator System around the perimeter of our basement and the installation of a new sump pump and pit. Also installed a new drain system for our washing machine that was discharging out to our front ditch and installed per code to discharge into the sewer/septic system.
Comments: We were visited by Wayne, the president of the company, He explained the problem we were having and even knew the company that installed our existing system years ago, (which was a lifetime warranty. Company no longer in business) so buyer beware. They were on time, workers were extremely personable and informative, performed exactly what they proclaimed that they would do and even came back to repair a couple minor issues associated with our old system. The thing that sold me on the integrity of this company was the washer drain system. I was concerned about discharging the water from the washer into the Septic and preferred to have it discharge to the front ditch. (which we have done for years) They explained to me that this did not meet code. They installed per code. Another contractor probably would have done as I requested but they did not. EXTREME PROFESSIONALISM ON THEIR PART! All in all. Great Job! We are extremely pleased.
PS. Four or Five years ago we hired a company to do some work down at my Mom and Dad's house in Columbus Indiana. My mom kept telling me to call the people that did theirs because they were so happy with them. GUESS WHAT. It was the same company!

Description Of Work: Installed submersible PVC pressure relief drainage system 43 Lineal Ft inside basement perimeter, drilled block at footer level to relieve water standing in cavities of block wall. Installed cove plate to catch any future water from weep holes to system. Dug out existing sump pit and installed new using existing pump and discharge.
Comments: Mark Ruetsch was the A-1 Indiana Waterproofing inspector who recommended the required drainage system and quoted the job. Work was completed in less than 8 hrs. and done by a professional crew led by Ed (last name unknown). The crew was careful to clean as they worked and coordinated the tasks with real teamwork. Ed recommended the type of sump pump that I should buy in the future to better use the sump pit space for both the primary and backup sump pumps. We are anxious to see the efficiency of the new drainage system during the next major rain event.

Description Of Work: Came out to evaluate existing waterproofing system in an investment property
Comments: They were great. We have a house that is an investment property but is a large 4 bedroom house. There was a waterproofing system in the basement when we bought it and we didnt' really know anything about it. We had some areas of moisture/mold on the walls and thought the system was failing. When the young man came out he explained that they are a family owned business and he walked through the basement and around the outside of the house. He gave me 2 suggestions for making sure that water was better diverted from the basement and said that we would likely be fine if we followed those suggestions. We did.....and it has worked! No new moisture and we recently repainted the basement. He easily could've told me that we need to do X-Y-and-Z to fix the existing waterproofing system but he made a point in saying that they value their reputation and that they aren't in business to take advantage of customers. What a great company!

Description Of Work: Waterproofed my basement. House built in 1919.
Comments: It was a scary proposition to have somebody come in and jackhammer around the perimeter of the basement! But I am SO glad I did it. A1 also put in a sump pump (of course). It appeared A1 had different crews for different phases of the project: jackhammer, rubble removal, pipe installation, sump installation, concrete installation. They put panels up my walls to contain direct any seepage down to the corrugated pipe installed in the floor. It was methodical and organized and fast. I have not had a drop in my basement since. I have a carpet down there now!

ANITA STOKES 5 stars feedback
Description Of Work: They replaced the oldest of our two sumps and added battery back-up to both of our sumps.
Comments: Our early spring rains showed us that we needed to address several problems in our water-logged basement. Two of the three companies we contacted to give us estimates of the work needed to solve our water problem mentioned that the oldest sump (already in the basement when we bought the house in 1983) was positioned too high and needed to be redone. A-1 Waterproofing put in a French drain and the second sump pump about 10 years ago. We asked them to give us an estimate to re-do the oldest sump and to put in a battery back-up for both sumps. They gave us an estimate that was better than the other companies, and since we liked what they had done for us 10 years earlier, we chose them to do the work. It was done in a day. Of course, we have not been able to test the new sumps since the long, hot, rainless July followed.

Description Of Work: Installed 5 fiberlock stabilization strips on south wall. Clean and tuck point all cracks on south wall allowing more stabilization plus can monitor future movement
Comments: 20 years ago the owner (Wayne) water proofed my Dad's tri level house. When there was an incident, A-1 came out and fixed it free of charge. Dad was impressed with the quality of work and responsiveness of A-1. As a result, A-1 came highly recommended for my requested services of stabilizing the south wall in my home built in the 1940's. Randall (Dell) Philips came over to give me an estimate.He spent several hours with me and explained all of my options when he saw the wall. I advised that I would need a month or two to come up with the money. He accepted a down payment of with the remaining balance due at completion. When I called back, Randall came out with Wayne and sat down to speak with me and Dad so that we knew exactly what was to be done. On the day of repair they were punctual and polite. I came home on my lunch hour to drop off a check and they were done. The basement wall looks stable and is guaranteed for 10 years. I am completely satisfied with the work. I mentioned that I may sell in the near future so Randy offered an transferrable warranty. I would highly reccomment A-1.

Description Of Work: Wayne Roberts made two trips and explained in detail what his company does to waterproof a crawl space. not only do they drill weep holes in the cinderblock, they excavate around the inside crawl space perimeter,install PVC drain pipe (not the type you see in gutter run offs but actual piping, slope the piping toward the sump pump well. Price included this work, a new sump pump, build up of center of crawl space, vapor barrier installed, crushed stone above the piping, installed EZ breathe ventilation system, and closing of crawl space venting so only EZ breathe system is source of ventilation. price also included all electrical work that was needed.
Comments: due to weather a large crew was sent to do the work in one day. the crew was efficient and finished in about 6 hours. All debris and unused material was removed. On second day the supervisor returned to make sure all electrical work was finished and he started the ventilation system.

Install drain system, gravity flow. Drill weep holes in block wall cavities to drain moisture from walls. Backfill system with #8 stone. Install 6 mil. vapor barrier on ground.
Comments: I was referred to this company by a American Mold, a mold remediation company. Our crawl space was holding water and the mold company said we needed to take care of waterproofing before removing mold. They called A-1 during our initial consultation and we were able to schedule a site visit later that same day. Sales rep. Gene Dick was courteous and helpful in explaining our problem and A-1's solution. We were able to schedule quickly and the work was completed within one day. The work is completely lifetime warrantied (transferrable to new owners should we decide to sell some day) and the sump is warrantied for one year. I am very pleased with the work A-1 completed. If central Indiana ever gets rain again, we'll be able to test the effectiveness of their solution, but so far, so good.

SUZANNE SYLVESTER 5 stars feedback
Description Of Work: My house was built in 1939 & I got water leaking into my basement, all around the foundation, whenever we had heavy rains. Not only was it annoying, but several boxes got wet & I noticed mold growing on the basement walls. A man named Glen came out for the estimate. He explained very clearly what the procedure would be to waterproof my basement. It involved trenching the floor all around the perimeter whereby the concrete was removed down to the dirt next to the foundation. Then perforated PVC pipe would be laid, the pipes would be connected & go to a submerged sump pump & the discharge opening would be cut through the brick wall to my back yard so that the water could be captured & then pumped out.
Comments: I needed to get other people to help me pack everything up & get another crew to pull all the built-ins away from the walls so that the waterproofing crew would have access. I had been scheduled for the sump pump to be installed around September 1st, but I finished with the preliminary work sooner than I thought. I called Bill Verhonik & he was able to find an opening in their schedule so the crew could start on my project earlier. The men started on August 19th & got all the excavation work done in one day. Today, the 20th, they laid the pipe, made all the connections, sunk the sump pump, filled the trenches in with gravel & then cemented over the top of the dug out area. The whole crew was polite, hard working, very respectful of my home & yard. Plus they invited me & my grandson downstairs to show us their progress & answer any questions we had about how the whole thing would work once everything was hooked up.

Description Of Work: estimate for water proofing on room in the basement
Comments: Wayne Roberts came out to give me a quote for waterproofing one room in our basement where we were getting a little bit of water that would collect on the floor. He did not try to sell me his system but instead took the time to diagnose the problem as coming from the bay window above the basement. He then took the time to show me where he believed the water was coming in and explained that we could most likely cement the loose mortar and make the repairs to the window ourselves. This would save us a lot of time and money tackling the issue this way first to see if a simple repair to the window would fix our water problem. I really appreciate Wayne being honest and seeking to help us resolve our problem simply and reasonably. His honesty and desire to help instead of just make a sale will ensure that I'll call him first if I ever do have a water problem in my basement. It is nice to know that honesty is still alive and well! Wayne was great.

They worked with up to schedule things in a timely manner once we decided to go with them. The job was completed in 3 days, an entire day sooner than expected. They hung plastic to divide the basement from the living areas and covered our belongings in the basement while they were working. They did charge more than some estimates that we got from other companies, but A1 was the most professional and most knowledgeable in answering our questions and addressing our concerns. My husband is an engineer, so he had very specific questions and wanted to be sure that they were all taken care of. A1 did a great job! Worth paying slightly more than the lowest estimate.

Description Of Work: In our very wet crawlspace, they trenched around the entire perimeter, laid drainage pipes, added more gravel, and covered it with very heavy black plastic. They drilled drainage holes in the cinder block to facilitate drainage and to decrease the amount of water pressure on the foundation. They trimmed the insulation to make sure it would not get wet, and they replaced the sump pump.
Comments: It will be very difficult to explain just how wonderful these men were and what a fantastic job they did. The estimate appointment provided us with all the information we would need to make an informed choice. Every phone call was answered right away, and every appointment was kept. They arrived on time just as arranged. They were polite and very friendly. They never wasted a moment during the two day job.

A-1 could not complete the job because it is not part of what they do, but recommended another contractor. They also gave us information about what exactly to have done. This gave us the confidence to do the work ourselves with the help of a family member who is a retired contractor. We were very happy with A-1's professionalism and honesty. I would recommend them for their knowledge about home improvement!

Description Of Work: Installed sump pump and peripheral crawl space drain.
Comments: Mr. Dick gave a competitive estimate and explained options thoroughly. Mr. Ed Moore, as crew chief, ran a tight ship. The crew was polite, punctual, hard working, protected floors, and treated clean-up as if it was their own home. Great job!

Description Of Work: Project began as a basement waterproofing system and became a complete foundation rebuild when one of the walls collapsed. All new concrete block walls were constructed along with floor repair, joist support, and removal of debris.
Comments: Bill and Wayne were wonderful to work with. This was a nightmare job with extensive unforeseen complications on a nearly 100 year-old basement. They were exceptional throughout the entire process and extremely professional.
