Review by in Williamston, MI
In less than two years the main pump went out which was common, but the alarm kept going off on the pump spy battery backup. Starting at 9 p.m. I kept calling the emergency 24 HR number and the answering service kept saying somebody would call and nobody ever did. All night long the alarm was beeping and I had to stay up all night in the cold basement resetting it every 7 minutes. I had to have another company put a pump in for full price because Stay Dry manager was so rude to me. Six months later a very heavy rain poured water in and the basement flooded. I found out the pipe on the floor was not working and never had been because it was improperly installed uphill to the crock. Perry was the foreman on the job. He was also supposedly the night call person. Now the southwest corner wall has black mold in an 8-foot area on both sides, and they are telling me to scrub it and clean it with bleach myself and then paint it. I just want people to know that you will get no service if you have an emergency and if you just need a quick phone call to tell you how to reset an alarm or open the candy cane pipe to relieve water forget it. You will have a totally flooded basement with property damage for sure.

Review by in Rockford, MI
Randy came and did an excellent job. I watched him and he explained each procedure. Very courteous and said if for any reason it continued to leak (which he was very adamant that it would not) they would be out to fix whatever needed to be fixed. We would highly recommend this company. Wayne, the sales person, also was very informative. He was much more realistic in his assessment of our problem than the others. We had other companies come out and they wanted to practically tear our basement apart and charge us an arm or a leg to do so.

Randy did a very good job on sealing the four leaks on cement walls. Later we discovered that the reason for excessive water on outer walls. It was due to our well water pump was continually leaking water under ground five foot from the house. Luckily I looked outside when water came gushing up out of the ground.

Great Company to work with. Randy had Great Customer Service Skills during the time he came out for the estimate and when he performed the work. Lifetime guarantee on the work.

Review by Angel B. in Benton Harbor, MI
They changed the installation date twice. I gave them a $2000 deposit and after I told them I didn't want to work with them anymore they refused to return my deposit.

I had StayDry install their waterproofing system back in 2008. Haven't had any issues with water since. However, the City of Lansing noticed that a permit wasn't pulled for their work. I've spent the last few months attempting to get StayDry to issue a permit. With the advice of a lawyer I refused the sign a hastily written 'contract' that was printed up in 10 minutes that would absolve them of any liability. When I refused to sign they refused to pull a permit for the work they did. I'm now working with the City of Lansing to get this fixed, but it'll likely cost me hundreds of dollars to make it legal. The inspectors noted that this was not the first issue they've seen with StayDry. I'm worried if they cut corners on getting a permit what other corners they may have cut. Buyer beware.

Crew was professional and did a great job. We had a sump pump and 40 feet of waterproofing done. Work was done in a day, workers were really clean, and we were very happy.

I hired Stay Dry on 5/23/18 to waterproof my basement. Basement still leaks in the same place as it did before the work. I filed a complaint with what needs to be done and sent pictures too. No calls or responds to email from anyone. I'm very unhappy with lack of Customer Service/ Sales and would still like for this problem to be resolved. After talking with the CEO, he went out of his way to help resolve the problems. Had some more work done and even schedule for a Saturday. It was nice to see that he made it right.

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.
