Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because Brown's Basements has been engineering water control solutions for basements since 1998. For a decade prior to that, Colin apprenticed in the basement waterproofing industry honing his skills and obtaining his business degree from Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado..

Of the 3 experts we had bid on our basement job, Colin and his team were the only ones who correctly identified the issue. They were professional, honest, answered all our questions and took the time to listen to us. Would recommend highly!

Colin and his team are THE BEST! Professional, competitively priced, focused on the job, yet took the time to explain -- in layman's terms -- exactly what they did. If you have requirement for anything done below ground, Colin and his team are the go-to guys, hands-down!

I will not know for some time if moisture entering basement was corrected but am assuming so. I was disappointed with part of the final appearance and would have appreciated a response to my inquiry about possibility of painting calk.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
