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.

I originally left a bad review over a disagreement with a mid level supervisor of the company. The owner/senior management got wind of the problem and bent over backwards to make me happy with their product and service. The work is excellent and they put forth excellent effort to get it that way. Thank you Stay Dry.

Review by in Bay City, MI
The professional most qualified was sent on the recovery team. I state this because he had a different plan than what was stated on the contract. His years of experience on the job gave him insights that the original missed. However, I do have a dry basement, and even though it might have been done somewhat differently due to the high water table in my area, I remain dry for the first time ever. I appreciate all the effort of the original team, several of whom were new to the job. They explained that training was on site, and it was a flood situation in June. This was not an easy job, and much creativity was involved to secure a dry basement. I just looked at my first PUMP SPY online report: this is amazing and affords peace of mind. This was a learning experience for me!
Response by Stay Dry Basement Waterproofing, Inc.: Thank you very much Carole! We appreciate you!

Review by a homeowner in Lansing, MI
Hired in 2015. In April 2017, there was water in my basement. Had company come out and they tore my wall apart to tell me I needed a crack injection. Told me warranty did not cover this. I asked to speak with owner. Dave had a condescending attitude from the moment he picked up the phone. He claimed that I was one of those customers and I have given his staff the runaround and they have been at my beckon call. I asked him to fix the crack for free. I explained to him that the system put in because of Julius and Perry, was supposed to be the remedy for the crack leaking water. He told me there was no way that they could have known this system would fix the water coming in. That was the whole reason I had the company come to my house in the first place. I told him that I was explained to me, that the water would come in through the crack, travel down behind the grey material sticking up from my floor, and then run into the pipes and travel to my sump pump. He told me I had no documentation or proof that this was said that I said what the system would do. I told him that was the whole reason I had StayDry come out, to diagnose my water issue and fix it. I told him he misdiagnosed it and should have mentioned the possibility of needing a crack injection in the first place. He told me he cannot see through walls so I asked him why they did not cut the drywall to find out what solution was best for me. He said they visit so many houses, what are they supposed to do, cut out everyones drywall? I said yes, maybe that would help get people solutions that worked. I could have saved around $6,500 and Im sure other people as well. I told him now they've torn my drywall off twice and it is still not fixed. He was very conscious to mention that he himself was not out there and my house and did not tell me anything. I told him I understood and that Julius and Perry were the ones. They knew my problem and told me this was the solution. I told him if they did not know this was the solution, they should have dug deeper into the problem to find out a solution. He told me I was being threatening and yelling at him, even though I was in my office cubicle the entire time and would never raise my voice or yell at work. He told me that he wasnt going to let me slap him around over the phone anymore and next time we talk it needs to be face to face. I would have to come to the office. He told me he had a 1pm appointment. I asked him when his next appt was. He told me to go ahead and sue him and that I can cry because he does not care. I told him I know he does not care. He then said he gets 1,000s of these calls so I asked, thousands? Because you have 1,000s of complaints? He then hung up on me. I found out they never pulled a permit to perform the work in 2015. A week after Dave hung up on me, with no further communication, on 4/21/17, I received a call from Tony. He stated that the owner had given him permission to fill the crack for free. When I asked if there was going to be a warranty, he told me there would be a written agreement. He told me he would follow up with information about a warranty. He then told me someone else would call me to schedule a date and time. I never received a call back from Tony about the warranty. A few hours later, John called me to set up an appointment. We scheduled it for May 3. He told me that there was going to be a release/waiver to sign. I said that must be what Tony meant by written agreement. I asked if it was possible, Id like to see this document before. On May 2, a phone call from John confirming the appt for May 3. I asked about not receiving a copy of the written agreement/release/waiver and he chuckled. He said he saw a special instruction note on my file and that the worker would handle that the next day. StayDry did not show up and no communication has been had since.

  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.
