Review by in Brownsville, PA
This was the absolute worst experience I have ever had (and I'm 64!). Tristan Cole gave me a quote, and I accepted. He constantly changed the scheduled start dates. Told me he couldn't 'find a crew' . This should have been a red flag and I should have just cancelled! When we first spoke, Tristan made it sound as if he had employees. Well, he didn't. He was relying on subcontractors. Well, why is he even in business, if he doesn't have a crew that can do the work as promised? Finally get a subcontracted crew in, and they completely screw up the job. Nothing was done as it should have been. Items were not replaced as was stated in the contract, and I PAID EXTRA to have them move my appliances and replace them. I think it was close to $650. Didn't happen. So, I then find out that Tristan has moved to Florida! What about my $9.000 job? I had to literally hound him until he found another company to do the work. They came in, and did some work, but they did not complete the job. Things are still not working correctly. The electric is not to code. And, the 'repairs' haven't fixed my problem!!! So, I am now out approximately $9,000 and still have the exact same problem! Honestly, I think he needed the money and game me an estimate for work that never needed to be done. He told me I needed an internal french drain, when all I really needed was custom window wells, according to the latest subcontractor that was here. Just a complete fraud, only in it for the money. Unfortunately, I am going to have to pursue legal action. Just more time and aggravation. I will make a complaint against his license. Home Advisor really needs to vet the contractors that they include on their site.

Review by Joe K. in Pittsburgh, PA
Please do not hire Budget Waterproofing Pros. I contacted them to install wall mesh, a french drain, and a sump pump in my basement last February. They did the work over two days and left a mess. 1. They cut the ground wire of my main electrical box while installing the wall mesh. I had to have an electrician come and fix it. 2. They tied the electrical wire that was behind the wood paneling to the ceiling. I found one of the outlets hanging close to the ground over a very damp surface. I had to call them to come back out and fix the issue. 3. Fast forward to now. While remodeling my basement bathroom, my plumber noticed that there was a gap in my main sewer line where the drain was installed. Budget Waterproofing Pros had wrapped wall mesh around this gap and did not tell me about it. If the problem existed before they started, they are incompetent for not informing me of a preexisting problem. If they caused the gap, they are willfully negligent. Neither of which is a good quality in a contractor. 4. Also, while remodeling my basement bathroom, my plumber noticed that they didn't connect the drain pipes together. So there are small gaps between each drain piece. A drain that isn't connected doesn't work very well. 5. Finally, I have been trying to contact them to discuss these problems. The phone number listed on their website and on HomeAdvisor is temporarily unavailable. I cannot get a hold of anyone to discuss these problems. Do not hire Budget Waterproofing Pros.

This was the worst contracting experience that I have ever had. While installing a sump pump next to my basement door, they punched a large hole through my wall. This disrupted the door frame and so the basement door would not close. (They also broke a hinge on the door.) They left the job site in this condition. I contacted the owner, Triston Cole who promised me it would be taken care of. They crudely patched the hole in the wall but after a month of promising it would be taken care of, the door frame and door were not repaired. Triston Cole sold the company and moved to Florida. But, even so, he said he would see this through (I have documentation to that fact.) so that my door would be repaired. After a couple of weeks, he disconnected his phone and quit responding to email. I contacted the new owner, Bill, and he said that Triston had told him that he would have my problem taken care of. Bill said that he would see that the problem would be taken care of. I have not heard back from him in several weeks. I intend to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I had to have another contractor come in to fix the door frame and rehang the basement door. Be forewarned - Do not use this company!

I needed to solve a water problem in my garage. Dave provided a detailed proposal for a sump pump installation at a reasonable price. Each component of the project was identified. Tristan scheduled the work, sent an experienced crew chief whose team completed the project in one day, and then walked us through the results. While it will take some time for the water table to readjust, we're pleased to already see no water from walls. Tristan commits to satisfaction.

Consummate professional. Of the three bids Tristan was the most knowledgeable about the problem and came up with a straightforward solution. Always on time and reliable. The work was done expeditiously.

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.
