Review by in Totowa, NJ
I hired this company to install a sump pump and a battery back-up system. The install went flawless. However, the sump pump did not even last one year. I tried calling the company several times over the course of a few days and he did not even have the courtesy to call me back after leaving several messages. Poor customer service! I just ended up replacing the sump pump myself and tossing the crap he installed in the garbage.
Response by Effective Basement Solutions, LLC: Consumer need a bigger pump ? over heat burns the cooper on the pump and it?s not warranted ?

While Franco and his colleague arrived an hour late, he called to alert me to the delay, and they still finished the job that day. They worked efficiently, walked me through everything they did, and left my basement clean and dry. Very pleased with their work and plan to hire them again for future improvements to my drainage system.

Project: Waterproof a Basement or Foundation
A big job like installing a french drain is never fun, but Franco and his crew got my problem solved and left my place in good shape.

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.
