Don & his team worked so efficiently, professionally & on schedule as planned. It was a huge relief to get this work done. I ve been having water in our crawl space for some time. He was probably the 5th estimate that I received. No scare tactics were used. He was very professional & since he had so much experience dealing with this issue, he knew exactly what needed to be done. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone needing this kind of work done. A+ for honesty, hard work & professionalism.

Review by in Edinburg, IL
These guys were very accommodating, courteous, and even did more than was expected. It hasn't rained yet but I believe they were very conscientious about the work they did. Price was reasonable and all employees were very nice and got the job done quickly. I would definitely hire them again.

My wife and I contacted Don Felton using Home Advisor, Don was the only contractor who listened to us and understood what we needed to fix our drainage problem! Don and his crew put in a French drain in our yard, so that water can drain away from around our window wells and keep them from filling with water! After Don left you could hardly tell that they were here except for where we asked them to put the excess dirt in a low spot in our yard. His workers even removed the rocks from the dirt and racked it level! I highly recommend Sure Dry Waterproofing (Donald Felton) Very professional and a Great person to work with! Don also installed a new sump pump in our basement at a very reasonable price and gave us a 5 year warranty on it (the manufacturer only gives you 3 years)!

I hired Sure Dry because my basement was leaking. They were the third estimate I received. The first place I called couldn t even give me an estimate because the job was so large and would require tearing into the walls. The second business I called informed me that I was looking at a minimum $2,000. Thankfully, I called Sure Dry. He came out and after 20 minutes told me my issue could be fixed for around $15. I just needed to extend my downspout. I did that and my problem was solved! They are honest and reliable and I highly recommend!
Response by Sure Dry Waterproofing: I never sell or push something that's not needed. I'm constantly giving free advise to home owners that would have otherwise been taken advantaged of .

Review by in Illiopolis, IL
I needed to find someone available as soon as possible for repair of my basement wall. Mr. Felton was able to begin the job almost immediately. He rearranged a previous appointment and was able to start the next day. The work was done with the barriers and very little dust. When I did the final inspection I was amazed at the work but the cleanup was immaculate. He and his team were very nice and I would recommend Sure Dry for anyone in need of repairs. .

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.
