We’ve been in our home for almost ten years and have dealt with a flooded basement every time we’d have heavy rainfall. Stephen completed a thorough inspection to find the trouble spots and we enjoyed meeting with him as you can see it is his passion to help homeowners. His team explained every step and was very upfront about the progress of installing a sump pump and patching the walls. We are so happy we chose this company! Our basement is dry and it is wonderful!

I had James & Cody come to my home & installed drain Tile & Sump Pit & Pump in my basement. I was under a time constraint & needed it done pretty fast. Steve Burton & Michelle got me scheduled in less than a week. They did entire job (to perfection) in only 1 1/2 days.They were very polite & workmanship was excellent. I would recommend Waterproof Solutions to anyone.
Thanks,

We had a consult with Greg Foerstel about a leaky basement. After looking at the exterior, he identified the source of the problem with exterior hardscaping. This assessment meant that I’d have to contact someone else to fix the problem. I so appreciated this after having another basement company suggest an expensive fix that, in Greg’s estimation, would not only have not helped, but had the potential to exacerbate the problem, in addition to be a waste of money. Even though they didn’t end up doing work for us, helpful and honest companies are always worth remembering.

As a real estate investor, Steve’s team helped me solve a long list of problems at one of my properties. That old home had a unique set of circumstances, and Waterproof Solutions worked on these issues one by one until our dry basement goals were met. As a professional home inspector, I have been referring my clients to them ever since. Thanks, Steve!

These guys are the best. We had to fly in from Australia to settle my mum’s estate, clear the house and sell it in under 4 weeks. When we discovered cracks in the basement we didn’t like our chances of getting them fixed and the house on the market before we had to leave. Michelle and Gregg were absolutely fantastic in making sure that their schedules got rearranged to fit our scheduling demands. Top company to deal with. Would give more stars if I could.

Wow. Where to start. We were referred to Stephen and Waterproof Solutions by a family member. We had some cracks in our interior walls and were looking for someone to check them out to be sure we did not have foundation or major structural issues. Stephen came by and was so polite, honest and informative. Long story short, thankfully we did not have any foundation issues, but Stephen did point out that our gutters needed replacing ( I had a hunch they were not any good) and he pointed out some framing issues in our basement. All of which could be the main cause of our settling and crack issues. So we have new gutters already put on the house and are fixing the framing issues this week. These guys could have very easily told us whatever they wanted and we would not have known. Stephen even offered to get us in contact with someone to help us with the gutters and framing if we needed any assistance. I would definitely call them again if anything comes up and would definitely refer them to anyone!!! Great, professional, honest company. Thank you for everything!!!!

Waterproof Solutions President Stephen Burton assessed the water leak in our foundation and found the problem right away, he was very professional and helpful. James repaired the leak and was also very professional and on time. Everyone at Waterproof Solutions was helpful including Michelle, secretary/receptionist, who sent the contract and answered more questions for us. We did wait until we had 4 days of rain, some heavy, to make sure there was no leaking before this review. You could not ask for a more honest and helpful company to work on your home.

Waterproof Solutions was able to squeeze us in under a tight timeline as we were in the process of closing on our new home. Stephen inspected the property inside and out and asked me to join him on his inspection to share with me exactly what he was looking at and looking for with the foundation. He pointed out a number of positive attributes about the home and also shared with me things that should be addressed outside of just the foundation. Stephen was a joy to work with and he has an unbelievable passion for what he does day in and day out. Thanks for your help Stephen!

I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for the work that Mr. Burton and Waterproof Solutions has done on my basement. Our newly built home had many unforeseen problems commencing at first with a crack that we were not told about that was hastily patched by the builders, followed by a crack under our basement window that recently started to leak.

I am especially grateful to Mr. Burton and Waterproof Solutions for the way they took the time to look out for the little man and have my back when the builder was only looking out for himself.

I will have no hesitation in employing Waterproof Solutions on future projects and therefore look forward to working with Mr. Burton again; it was a pleasure working with him and his team, demonstrating a positive “can and will do approach” throughout. In conclusion, thank you to a company that has their priorities straight when many others don’t.

Stephen is the best. He has done a small crack at one of my properties and also a huge project at another house for me and I cannot complain! Great work, great customer service and I never hesitate to refer him to my friends and family. I am also a realtor and anytime I see anything questionable I give him a call or do a video chat and he is always able to give me an idea of “yes, can be fixed” or “run for the hills”. Thanks Stephen!!

I recently sold my home and purchased a new one. I first had a crack in my garage to be filled, as requested by my buyers after inspection. There were admittedly some bumps in the road with Waterproof Solutions’ administrative staffing issues at the time. However, when a very unexpected leak occurred in my basement 2 weeks prior to closing, Stephen Burton, the owner of Waterproof Solutions, did everything in his power to make sure the issue was resolved quickly for both myself and my buyers. He personally came to my home, showed genuine concern and empathy, diagnosed the root of the problem, suggested a solution, and made sure everything was done the right way, even considering the tight timeline.

The character and professionalism I experienced with Mr. Burton and his employees in the field are unmatched. The kinds of issues they handle for customers are the kinds that can cause some heavy angst and worry, and they do a great job of not only easing that worry and showing empathy, but completing their work timely, professionally, and with a high degree of quality. I would highly recommend this company with all your waterproofing needs!

Stephen Burton came out and looked at the foundation before we ever purchased the home! We didn’t even ask him to do that!
The primary concern was the peering under the sunroom addition that was completed 20 years ago. Without hesitation Stephen evaluated the situation, gave us a reasonable estimate and timeframe to complete the project. He then sent out Nelson and Nick Maurath to install 12 peers under the room. The weather was so hot and they worked every single day for a week. They were so polite and would never accept our offers of amenities. Truly professional individuals.
The cleanup was meticulous. Other than the back of our home looking incredible everything was put back in place and they even planted grass seed. Again, truly professional!
I would recommend Waterproof Solutions and their staff for any of your foundation needs. Stephen is knowledgeable and his expertise shows in the quality of work that is received.
Thank you Waterproof Solutions!

The good people at Waterproof Solutions saved my basement! Long story short, I bought an old house (my first house) during the winter months that had been rehabbed. Almost everything in it was brand new, except of course for the foundation and basement walls. After just a few months it was spring, and the first big rain hit. The basement leaked like Swiss cheese. That night I watched in horror as water rushed in below the newly laid carpet, creating what I called a “waterbed effect.” Seriously, it was like walking on a waterbed.

I tried everything in a vain attempt to fix the problem. Landscapers, engineers, you name it, nothing worked out. I called in some of the bigger waterproofing companies that do lots of advertising. To put it mildly, I was not satisfied with any of their proposals.

Then a family member told me about Waterproof Solutions, so I gave them a call. Meeting Stephen was a treat. No one is more knowledgeable about his craft, and his energy is unmatched. He made me believe that even a situation like mine could be salvaged.

My job was a big one. I needed drain tile installed around the entire basement (which was still partially finished) and a sump pump. I had some major cracks in my basement walls that needed filled. I also had a lot of runoff water coming from a neighbor’s porch, so Stephen suggested I install a French drain and tied it to the sump pump. Everything that Stephen suggested was absolutely necessary. He will not try to sell you on something you do not need. Alex and the rest of the crew came out and did a ton of work in a relatively short amount of time. They were very professional, and did an excellent job! Even the cleanup was immaculate.

Stephen and his crew were able to do things the other waterproofing companies said they couldn’t do, or wouldn’t do. Later, when some touch up work was needed, they promptly came back out and did that too. I went from having a basement that leaked like a sieve, to now being able to refinish it again!

Whether your job is a small one, or you’ve got a train wreck of a basement like I had, you can feel confident knowing that with Waterproof Solutions, you’re hiring the best in the area to get it fixed, and fixed right. What else can I say? Waterproof Solutions didn’t just save my basement, they saved my house!

Steve was eager to help us out when we needed to know what was going on in a basement my clients were buying.

I needed to get my basement waterproofed and had Greg Foerstel come out from this company to provide a quote. I let him know that I had a budget that I needed to stay within and he managed to come back with a quote that met my needs within that budget. They scheduled the install for a Tuesday thru Friday. The office staff was great at making sure I was aware of the scheduled start and end date well in advance and helped work all the specifics out without any stress on my end. The crew called and let me know when they would be here each day of the project and kept me in the loop on everything they were doing at each step of the project. The crew chief, James Williams, provided great communication and on several occasions when he had to leave to help other customers on situations, he let me know when he was leaving, when he would be back, and his crew worked just as hard while he was gone as they did when he was here. In addition to working their tails off the entire time, they are all around great guys and should be commended for their work ethic. This led to them finishing the job over a day early (mid afternoon Thursday). They left my property in excellent condition, the work they did was exceptional, and I couldn’t be happier with my new Drain Tile System, Sump Pump, and Discharge System that they installed. Great Company, Great Work, Great Product, and Exceptional employees that provide it. I highly recommend this company for your basement waterproofing needs!

I am a real estate agent in the St. Charles County area and have had the opportunity to work with quite a few people in the foundation repair/waterproof industry. I just can’t say enough good things about Waterproof Solutions. The owner Steve, has several years experience, is very knowledgeable and for lack of a better term “a straight shooter”. I had a client that was in the process of inspections while buying a new home. At that time there had been an extreme amount of rain in the St. Charles area, and understandably so, most foundation repair companies were very busy. After calling seven different companies and leaving messages to try and get someone to come and evaluate the foundation on the house she was in the process of purchasing, I was still unable to get anyone on the phone or even call me back for that matter. I then was referred to Steve Burton of waterproof solutions who not only answered his phone on the first attempt and made an appointment with me the very next day to come evaluate the property, but scheduled that appointment on his day off so that we could meet our inspection deadline! This was more fortunate for us then we realized as the properties’ foundation was not sound and my client was able to walk away from a potentially expensive situation. Although it was disappointing for my client to lose out on this house after paying for her other required inspections, the disappointment, had she gone through with the purchase of the home, would have been unmeasurable. Steve was genuinely disappointed for my client and made sure to let her know that he would be available to come and look at any other property that she found in the future prior to any other Inspections so that she could avoid any further frustrating and expensive situations in the future. Integrity is something all too often lost in this industry and in the real estate industry as well for that matter, and it is truly comforting when you find someone that understands it’s importance. Steve is that someone, andAlthough I did not realize it at the time those other companies not answering their phone or even returning my phone call was the best thing they could’ve ever done for me and my clients. I feel blessed to have found a company with such a strong set of core values and would strongly recommend Waterproof Solutions to any of my friends, family, or clients!

I am very impressed with this company for many reasons. One is that I didn’t have to spend time trying to reach the right person, have to tell why I was calling to several people….all those things I’m used to. I got a call back within an hour, we made an appointment, Kevin was professional, did a thorough check of my foundation and I was amazed that he said it was solid! I was prepared to get a second opinion! He told me some things to be aware of….and that was it!!! THAT is how to run a company!

I’m a real estate broker and received Stephen’s name about a year ago when I needed a consult on a property. He answered my call right away and met my client at the property to give him advice. Since then, he’s helped me out 4 times including fixing a crack on my own home! Each time Stephen has given me his time, opinion, and/or advice it has been without charge or commitment. He is a concrete rock-star in my opinion; thoroughly knowledgeable, helpful, prompt, courteous and sincerely grateful to be of service. I cannot say enough good about Stephen and his company. They are professional, experienced and sincerely try to give the best work for the best price. I’m honored to have him on my team of professional referrals.
