Welcome to our site, the first step in drying up your basement or crawl space. Our service is based on the common sense approach of managing surface water around your home. No one has more skill or experience in finding and correcting common, overlooked, defects at a house’s exterior.
WE GUARANTEE TO ELIMINATE, OR GREATLY REDUCE, YOUR WATER SEEPAGE OR YOUR MONEY BACK. IT’S THAT SIMPLE.
I have advised Real Estate Professionals and homeowners since the mid 1980s on fixing wet basement and crawl space defects. I wrote a book on it:
5 Steps to a Dry Basement or Crawl Space. I never recommend “aftermarket” waterproofing systems. In fact, I’ve advised against them for years, while removing some in homes of clients.
These systems, installed on the inside of basements, neglect to address the source of the problem. Instead, they encourage water to come through the newly drilled holes they create in your walls, and the new trenches they cut into your basement floor. What can happen is erosion of earth beneath the foundation, proliferation of mold inside the home, and deterioration of foundation walls. These types of systems don’t even keep the basement dry, cost thousands of dollars, and create a mess and lots of stress. I’ve heard all of the stories when it comes to these types of waterproofing companies: scare tactics, phony warranties, lack of credentials. You cannot get objective advice from a business trying to sell you their product. Why do homeowners continue to purchase these products? Two reasons: they don’t no where else to turn; some people feel that if they throw a lot of money at a problem it’s sure to get fixed. Nothing is further from the truth. Now you have somewhere else to turn. WET BASEMENT CONSULTANTS has no hidden agenda and no conflict of interest. We offer plain talk, honest advice, objective consultation.
Although our service has been around for years, under the radar, this site is new. Stay tuned for updates.

Photo taken on a recent consultation appointment. What seems like an innocuous downspout arrangement is anything but. The homeowners did not see anything wrong with this. They called us and we provided a detailed account of all the needed corrections around their house to stem the flow of seepage that had been going on for years and years.
