    By Richard S.
    Latrobe, PA

    On of our neighbors who knew of the Baker's reputation suggested that we contact you. I read the basement waterproofing book that was sent to us from cover to cover and the products and installation processes made sense to me. We did not contact any local waterproofing companies because they just seemed to be second rate in terms of products and experience. We waited for a while for the job to be completed but it was worth it.

    I couldn't believe how clean the left everything, for only two of them and all of the grinding and such they had to do, the basement was definitely cleaner when they left than before they came. They also took a ton of care in going through and attaching our down spout, including putting our fence back and everything. i was very impressed and will be definitely be recommending Bakers due to this fact alone....

    Customer Testimonial

              We had water in our basement for 40 years and we figured it might be worthwhile to give Baker's Waterproofing a try. Our salesman, George, was very thorough in explaining everything, answered all of our questions, and we were satisfied enough that we didn’t even get another company to give us a bid! When the crew performed the work, they did a very professional job. Seemed like they really cared about the job. I don’t know what they're paying them, but they're not paying them nearly enough, because they really worked extra, extra hard. So far, there has not been any water in our basement. The sump pump has been running occasionally and pumping the water out--the basement is bone dry! I would definitely refer Baker's to my friends and family.

              From your design consultant (Nick) to your installation team (Ken, Rich, Matt) everyone focused on what we needed rather than trying to "over-sell" the products and services.Sara our customer service representative was extremely accommodating and courteous. Nick was very helpful in explaining the waterproofing "system" approach. You obviously sent the best with Ken and his guys (Rich, Matt). They worked very hard and expertly. They kept us informed of progress every day and frequently asked for our preferences when a part of the installation involved options. They left the work site clean at the end of each workday. I can't say enough about the professionalism of these guys. And they were very engaging personalities. A real pleasure working with them. And the results are superb! The basement and garage were spotless when the crew left.I'm thoroughly impressed with the skill, work ethic, and leadership that Ken demonstrated at the job site.
