I worked with Austin Werner at Real Seal to get some basement sump pump work done. He came out initially and gave me a quote and different options for my basement sump pump. He was very knowledgeable and gave pros and cons of different options. The quote was priced very fairly. They were able to get us on the schedule quickly. On the day off, the Real Seal technician called me the morning to let me know what time they would be here. The job was done very professionally and they answered all my questions. They cleaned up after the install. Highly recommended.

I had been having water leakage problems into my lower level family room for quite some time. Real Seal correctly diagnosed the problem, quoted a reasonable price, showed up to perform the work per agreed upon date and fixed it permanently. Even with the wet spring this year, I have not had any further water leakage problem. I highly recommend this company

Their work was excellent! Great attitude by all of the workers and Austin & Ben were very knowledgeable and kept me informed as to all they were doing. Their price was very fair and it was nice to feel that I could trust them. They covered all the details and cleaned up everything.

Real Seal estimator was prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. The technician resealed an old crack sealed in the past. He chipped out the old patchwork, and spaced the injection ports closely. He used epoxy. Great price, ifetime, transferrable warranty. Professional people, great value.

I found this company to be honest and very knowledgeable about foundation issues. They not only found the problem and fixed it, they did so without leaving a mess. 1 week after they made the outside repair, no could tell were they dug the hole and back filled it.

Jose was very professional and didn't give up until we found the problem for the seepage - I hope - Wouldn't you know it hasn't rained enough to test the project out. But I have a good feeling about the job that Real Seal has performed. Today I would hire Real Seal in a heartbeat. We got our figures crossed that our problem is solved. Thanks again Real Seal

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.
