Steve and his crew were excellent! He explained step by step what he was doing and sealed our foundation. Very prompt and professional with excellent customer service.

We had a very large and complex project and the crew did a outstanding job. We won't know if it ultimately solved the problem until the next heavy rains, but I'm betting we have no further problems.

Review by in Sherborn, MA
Straightforward in quoting the project. Gave honest quote that was right where expected cost to be. Showed up on-time as promised and completed project on-time. Had some good suggestions for the project and made several minor changes at reasonable extra cost after first discussing plans. Would rehire for another project.

Review by in Florence, MA
Steve was very responsive, honest about timelines and showed me exactly what was needed. He did not try to upsell me in the cost of work to be done and what was needed. He showed me how to follow up on his work to complete the job to save me money. He also came back to see how everything turned out after his work dried and I did my part. Overall, a good experience! Two other companies that responded would have done more work than necessary. One sent some great information and was polite when I chose Steve. The other company was rude and was not a good match for what I needed.

Steve Wall and his crew were honest, fast, hard working and delivered exactly what they promised, in a difficult area of 4' crawl space, trenching and putting in sump pump and clear shield. These are local guys who've been in the business a long time.

Curt was very responsive. They showed up when they said they would and finished ahead of schedule. We now have a dry basement without any musty smell.

Review by in Becket, MA
We were in a pinch when we called to have the exterior walls of our new foundation waterproofed and gave Real Dry a seemingly impossible deadline based on construction timelines, weather and temperature. We fully expected them to decline, but were thrilled when they heartily took on the challenge and exceeded all our expectations in terms of response time, professionalism, and quality of product/work. Curt was on site for the whole project; site was immaculate afterwards. Top notch company!

Review by in Wilbraham, MA
The owner, Steven Wall was professional from beginning to end. He responded quickly to my call, he provided a detailed explanation of the work to be done and a fair estimate, and he assured me he would be on the job with the crew. He and the crew arrived promptly, did the work efficiently, neatly, and ahead of schedule, and took great pains not to disrupt anything inside or on the outside of the house. The system they provided me all works together seamlessly. Excellent communication, trustworthiness, attention to detail and a quality job. I would highly recommend them.

Review by in Wales, MA
This contractor responded to my request immediately. He understood the need for quick service . I was impressed by his skill and leadership. He stayed on the job the entire time; communicated to me the plan for the day. They did an excellent job dealing with water in the basement and with the right plan have mitigated the problem. I would recommend them to anyone search for a skilled contractor! They are top of the line!

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.
