              We like dealing with Baker's Waterproofing. We found a water problem when we bought the house back in 2007. The previous homeowners hired your team to install wall anchors in 2004, so we knew who to call. Later, we had your crew clean the mold off of our basement walls and install a dehumidifier. We had total confidence in the crew--they were excellent!

              My father passed away and funeral was going to be on the project date. It’s a weird world and we don’t like to leave workmen in our home. But they gave us a great feeling, they were just here to do their thing and it was ok for us to do what we needed to. They came in, did their work, and they cleaned. We were thrilled with it. They were kind. They were respectful of my family. They tried to work longer the first day to get us to the funeral earlier the next day. They worked really well as a team.

Mr. Felt's credentials were impressive. My son is a school teacher and they talked about different teaching methods from now and then. I was so pleased with their work. Rich and Cliff got it all done in one day. They called on their way and were very clean. My son has done similar work and knows how hard it is. Now, I have no water in my basement and I am so tickled with it. I have a new lease on life!
