3 Questions to Ask Your Basement Waterproofing Contractor, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

Basement waterproofing can help protect your home from excess humidity, water damage, and mold, but only if the treatment is applied correctly. To make sure it's done right the first time, you need a trustworthy contractor to handle your concrete repairs. Before you choose your provider, ask companies you're considering these three questions.

How to Choose a Foundation Repair & Waterproofing Contractor

1. What Are Your Qualifications?

Basement WaterproofingYour contractor should be licensed and insured for all the services they offer, particularly the ones you're hiring them for. You should also ask how long they've been in the industry. The more experience they have, the less likely they are to make simple mistakes.

2. What Will the Process Include?

Once the contractor identifies the problem, ask what steps they'll take to correct it and why they use that method. For example, if you have a small crack or leak, and your basement waterproofing contractor recommends treating the entire basement, ask them why. Also, ask them an alternative approach, how long their work will take, and how you can prepare for the project. This will help you make informed choices about the work you agreed to.

3. Can You Provide References?

Any reputable contractor should be able to direct you to satisfied former customers, and you can also get this information online. Look at multiple reviews for the company. One bad review could be biased, but if many customers say the same thing about the company, it's likely to be true.
