I wrote a specification and received three bids for an inside drain on a remaining wall. Desert Dry had a great understanding of my requirement, submitted a good technical proposal, and was the lowest bidder. They have been in business for a long time and operate at a high level of maturity. They did an excellent job of tying the drain to two previous drains and installing special material to keep any water from the walls. They took great care in managing dust and keeping the basement clean. I have had zero water issues since the install, and the basement floor and walls look the same as before. I would not hesitate to recommend or use Desert Dry for any waterproofing project.

They gave me the same quote even a year later and did the work at that same price. They did the work within one day and guaranteed the work for life.

Review by in Herndon, VA
Very helpful and considerate of my dogs as well as all my needs. Wonderful experience and very nice price considering. My other estimators kept putting pressure on me to hire them and changing their prices. I felt they should have given me their best price up front like Desert Dry did. I really appreciated their professionalizm.

Desert Dry called immediately, described what it could do, and provided a rough estimate of what it might cost. Within 24 hours, they came out to inspect the problem and gave us a written quote, which was exactly what we had been told the previous day. On the following day, they showed up on time, were professional, explained the process, and cleaned up after themselves. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is having water issues with their basement.

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.
