Pro's and Con's

Basement waterproofers can be con artists. Bill Merrifield, Sr., President of Greentree Waterproofing, Inc., offers these tips to avoid being scammed:

Ask the contractor for a list of several customers with the phone numbers and call them. Do not rely on letters of recommendation.

Determine who you are dealing with. Many companies listed in the Yellow Pages are operated by a franchise. You need to know their business in your community.

Check with the local Better Business Bureau, or if there is none, the Chamber of Commerce or Attorney General's Office or Consumer Affairs.

Get a written estimate listing everything the contractor plans to do. Read front and back if there is one and all the fine print.

Other than a small retainer, never pay for any work until it is completed according to the agreement you signed.

Location of the Waterproofing company is very important.  Living in Illinois and contracting with a company out of Missouri, Indiana or any other state represents a problem during an emergency.
