Tips & First Steps

Helpful Tips

Preparing for a waterproofing or foundation project can be overwhelming. We understand and want to help you feel comfortable with the services planned for your property. Therefore, we've collected all of our "Tips & First Steps" for you on this page.


Pricing is customizable based on your needs. Every property is different. A common solution for waterproofing problems is an Interior French Drain. There are many other options as well. Please contact us for a FREE estimate. Here are some job-size examples:

  • Small job: Approximately 10-45 linear feet of internal French Drains and a sump pump.
  • Medium job: Approximately 46-95 linear feet of internal French Drains and a sump pump.
  • Large job: Approximately 96-150+ linear feet of internal French Drains and sump pump(s). We recommend having a secondary sump pump with 75-95 linear feet of French Drains; this also depends on the amount of water coming into your basement.


We collect a 10-30% deposit and the final balance is due upon the completion of the work.
