    By Craig
    South Park, PA

    Rich and his helper were awesome! By far the best part of the whole process. He was super nice, witty, sense of humor, but most importantly a worker. He got in, got the job done, cleaned up, and explained what he did and showed me his work in detail. The mess was minimal, and even sweep and hosed out my garage and driveway. Treat him well, he understands customer service as well as the job. I could tell his helper looked to him for leadership through the job, and he provided it. Rich was a true compliment to your company.

    Customer Testimonial

              I want to express my thanks for the installation performed on my house in Latrobe. Rich and Cliff completed 3 digs (under 2 contracts) in 2 days. I found them to be very good workers, knowledgeable in what they do, conscientious with detail, and very professional both with their customer and between themselves while on a customer site. I'm very pleased with the work they performed and would gladly have them back. It was a pleasure doing business with Bakers and all parties involved; including the office staff.

    Customer Testimonial

              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!

    Customer Testimonial

              My son said, "Mom, you're going to live to 100," and I told him if I'm going to live to 100, then I want a dry basement! My son found Baker's online. 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!
