basement waterproofing [Apr. 22nd, 2008|03:40 pm]

We're planning to refinish our basement, but I want to make sure it is well waterproofed before I begin putting up walls. Can anyone recommend local companies that do this kind of work? Bonus if you can provide some idea of what it costs.

I don't think there will be a need for any major work, but there are some problem areas I want to have looked at. We have some small cracks I want repaired.

I did contact Badger Basement Systems. However, they couldn't even fit us in for an appointment for just an estimate until the end of May. I'm guessing we'd have to wait even longer for work to actually start.

There was some waterproofing done before I bought this house. The contractor was Sierra Concepts, LLC. The phone number on the warranty is 608-277-8995 and the web addy is http://sierraconceptsonline.com

Re: In Madison

Yeah, I had Badger out and they did an estimate. They wanted $7,500 to install their system, not counting about $2k in extras we'd have to take care of.

If we were getting a ton of water I'd consider that. But I can't justify that kind of money for a little seepage now and then. Not without at least trying some cheaper alternatives first.
