“I want to compliment Michael and staff of Premier Basement Waterproofing for a job well done on a project here in Holden. I met with Michael to review what was needed to be done, at which point he layed out a detailed plan of what needed to be done to give us a dry basement. From that point forward the entire project was handled in a professional manner, sticking to a time sensitive schedule, with on site workers who kept me informed on progress of work and gave us a clean job site at the end of every day. Premier even did a follow up to be certain the project was completed to our satisfaction. Having been a contractor for over forty years it’s nice to see a company like Premier Basement Waterproofing that goes the extra mile to see a project complete in such a professional manner. Thanks again for a job well done.Alan V.
These guys aren't even done with the job yet and I can't write this review fast enough. Mike and Corey are hands down the best at what they do around here. We had a NIGHTMARE of a situation innour basement and couldn't finish it until we knew for sure it would be dry. 2 days on the job. Worked efficiently and respectfully and couldn't be happier with their work. Don't even hesitate to call premier. You won't regret itMatthew M.
I did the homework so you don't have to -- Michael Albert and Premier Basement Waterproofing are the best in the business. If you've spoken another basement company, STOP and call Premier right now. Talk to Michael, watch the video on the Premier website, and learn why his approach is so much better. Premier's price, for a far more robust and comprehensive treatment than was offered by others, was below the other guys. Michael knows his business and is a straight-shooter who does exactly what he says. It was a pleasure doing business with him and his team. If you have basement issues, don't mess around call these guys now.Andy H., Hudson, MA
Let me start by saying how happy I am with the finished project. To start I have lived in my house for 26 years. We have always had a sump pump and from what I was told a perimeter drainage system. The sump pump worked fine as long as the pump worked. Over the years we went through maybe 10 pumps, added a "battery back up system" Then the past couple of years we noticed that the pumps did not seem to keep up. 2018 we started getting water on the floor with any type of rain. I called Mike @ Premier and he came out next day, to take a look. Mike explained what was going on in my basement and why I was getting the water. He explained what he would do and why he could guarantee I would not get water again. Mike sent me the price and I started my research. What I found is that no one in the area would do the job like Premier. No one used the sump pump system they use. Everyone seems to use basic sump pumps. Premier uses Ion Genius pumps and back up. They first installed the pump and then came back to install the system. These guys were absolutely amazing! They came in did the demo of the basement, tore out the old clogged system. Installed the new system and poured new concrete in three and a half days. These guys were neat fast and professional. Corey took the time each day to explain every aspect of what was done each day and made sure I understood how every step they took, benefits the system in the long run. On the final day we did the walk through and everything was explained from how the water will never be able to come into the basement again to how the sump pump and battery back work. They installed clean outs all though out the system so with regular maintenance, it will never clog again. Beyond happy with the job these guys did and the piece of mind I am left with. I would highly recommend Premier Basement Waterproofing to anyone. They know what the're doing, they are fast and very trustworthy. This was not an easy job and they finished it when they said it would be finished.Dan R., Chelmsford, MA
One word "Amazing". Top notch waterproofing company. I collected over 5 quotes before contacting Premier. Mike and Corey are very professional. They deliver an A+ product. They go over and above to make the client happy. We needed the job to be completed by January 5th. Mike rearranged his schedule to accommodate us. Very grateful.Deneen M., Marlboro, MA
“We would recommend Premier Basement Waterproofing to anyone that needs work done on their house. Mike and Corey evaluated the work that needed to be done in the crawlspace under the cottage we recently purchased. It is a 90 year old former camp house on a pond. The crawl space was a mud filled nightmare. They explained all the work that needed to be done and answered all our questions. It was a big job to clean out the mess under the house, repair walls, replace and install support columns, install a new state of the art sump pump, dehumidifier and encapsulate the entire crawl space. Corey and his crew were professional, respectful, very hard working and just all around great people. The pride they take in their work is very evident. Corey and crew members Rick and Nate really went the extra mile to make our house look and feel great. Corey was so reassuring - he was creative and meticulous in his work. The crawlspace was completely sealed from the elements and transformed from a mud swamp to a clean dry and insulated space. Corey resolve landscaping concerns to keep rain water away from the house. We can't thank you all enough for the great job you did. Kristal the office coordinator was great to work with, the job took over a month to complete and she was able to work out all scheduling issues.Marcia T., W. Townsend, MA
“We went with Premier Basement Waterproofing to get an estimate after having on/off water in the basement over the past few months. We read reviews and contacted 3 companies for estimates. After emailing back and forth his assistant Kristal, we cancelled the other two estimators and just went with Premier! Kristal was so nice and so helpful. It seemed like she liked her job and cared about helping us. Between her and then the reviews, we felt like even if this company wasn’t the cheapest, customer service shown just to make the appointment was worth it! Boy am I glad we did!!! Michael the owner came out to do the estimate. He was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. He looked at our basement and the back yard. He diagnosed our problems and told us we didn’t need his full waterproofing services nor a pump! He gave us the contact info of someone to seal our cracks and told me what other little improvements we could do on our own to stop the water from backing up so we don’t have to pay someone to do such little, non-technical jobs and save some money! Always refreshing to meet friendly, professional and honest workers in a time when many companies are charging an arm and a leg for work that you didn’t fully need anyway! Please call this company if you have issues, you won’t be disappointed!Jenn M., Sharon, MA
“I had called them last year to take care of my basement since it was in very bad shape we had an old French drain there and this was not sufficient to keep the basement dry, our basement was always so damp we could also see some mold growing , like I said above it was in a bad shape. Once the premiere basement professionals came through they did a wonderful job by going through various options with me and my wife and did not pressure us whatsoever into a potential job , this was so refreshing that ended up choosing them the following was done :Jacques C., Lunenburg, MA
Install single stage stainless steel ION 1/3 HP sump pump.
Install airtight Liberty Sump Basin.
Install water watch alarm.
Install 122 Feet of Drain system beside footing.
Install 122 Feet of Vapor Barrier on walls
Install drain ports where needed.
Discharge line including check valves, frost protection and bubble pot end. As you can see this was a pretty big project, the entire job was done in matter of days and we had people coming in in out the house and they made sure to have tarps all over the traffic area that way they insured that our house was not dirty an the professionalism of the workers were exceptional, they made sure to go over the work being done and announced when they were coming an leaving it was an overall great experience and it has been a year later and my basement is essentially dry and me and my family are enjoying the extra space , I would recommend them for any basement jobs small or large, I am extremely satisfied with them.
In the wake of the downpours of this past week, we are LOVING our new sump pump system!! Mike’s crew were creative and professional as they dealt with our very funky 1830’s field stone basement with “a river runs through it”. Installation this summer was perfectly timed to keep us high and dry through yesterday’s deluge. Well worth the investment. Thank you!Karen S., Lunenburg, MA
I contacted Premier Basement Waterproofing in June of 2017 for an estimate to replace two old, noisy sump pumps in a house I had just bought. Michael Albert, the owner, come out promptly, explained all the options and answered all my questions. The replacement pump was installed in July 2017. The installation went without a hitch, and the sump has functioned flawlessly for the past year. There has been no water in the basement at all, even with snowmelt and heavy rains, the basement air feels drier, and the pump is silent. I never hear it. Exactly as Michael said it would be. I am very pleased with the product and the company and highly recommend Premier Basement Waterproofing.Judy C., Amherst, NH
I have been in my house for twenty years with a bone dry basement, until last spring. I had about 5 inches of water in my finished basement. I called several different companies looking for solutions to my problem, many did not show up or return calls. Mike at Premier was the only one who actually listened to me! We talked through possible causes and he gave me many different solutions. They did a great job, most important they fixed the problem the correct way, not by putting one of those "cheesy" channels all around the perimeter, but by actually digging down to the bottom of the footing and putting drainage channels into a sump pump. Their price was also lower than those franchise companies. Their work was beautiful, professional and did a nice job cleaning up. Corey is a master at installing and plumbing the pump and exterior drainage. They were always there on time. I am still blown away about how good these guys are.Mike G., Leominster, MA
Forget the big guys! Make the little guys the big guys!! Let me start by saying I have a home build in 1957 approximately 300 yards from a reservoir. With this being said in twice in 2016 (March and April) I got over 100 gallons of water in my basement virtually destroying all my carpet and drywall in the areas. I knew I had get help so I made appointments with multiple different companies for estimates and explanations. Mike really stood out saying that we can help not hopefully we can help you. He discussed everything at length. They had very competitive prices as well as looking at the equipment quality compared to the competition it was great. He gave me time to make my decision without pressure which I appreciated. In April 2017 Corey and his crew came and worked hard! They were efficient and willing to work with my hours that I work so I could still get some sleep. Any questions I had were always met with reassuring answers. A year and 3 months later through some pretty terrible weather and not so much as a drop of water later with everything working amazing. Give the smaller companies a try you will be surprised!! Thank you Premier Basement Waterproofing!!Dawn F., Framingham, MA
I had Premier Basement Waterproofing do work on my basement and garage the last week in March 2018. They did perimeter drains in the basement and a sump pump and short (7 foot) drain in my garage. They were knowledgeable, competent, responsive and professional through the whole process. Michael was very knowledgeable and straightforward when he came to look at my basement. They were the only company I talked to who would excavate down to the footers to put in the drains. They went above and beyond what the contract called for in my garage and were genuinely interested in helping me solve the water problem there. We have had a few torrential rains, especially yesterday - Marathon Monday 4/16/18 - and the basement and garage were both dry. I would absolutely recommend them and wish I had done this years agoRobert C., Lunenburg, MA
The property we own has always had a high water table. In 2001, our basement started to take on large amounts of water and became worse over time. We had another company install a basement waterproofing system in 2003. This system never worked perfectly and was very costly in electrical bills as well as still taking on water occasionally. Over time, this system became clogged and more and more inefficient. In November 2017 we called Premier Basement Waterproofing and spoke with Kristal who was always helpful and knowledgeable. She got us in touch with Mike. Mike set up an appointment and we planned for the new system. He was very pleasant and professional. In February 2018, the work began. The foreman Ritchie, co-owner Corey and crew were always prompt, polite and courteous. The crew was punctual and did a fantastic job in design, problem solving and execution of the entire job. As soon as the job ended, the weather provided immediate tests for this new and improved basement waterproofing system. It passed the test and continuing to do so to this day. Thank you to Kristal, Mike, Corey, Richie and crew.Jim and Michelle C. in Fitchburg, MA
Our house has always had water issues due to a high water table in our area. I finally got sick of the wet basement and called Mike. He came out the next day and provided me with a quote and a plan to fix all of my problems. The quote was more then fair and if I would have known how cheap it was I wouldn't of waited years to do it. They showed up within a few days and dug down and installed a new sump pump and also fixed a crack in the wall. This eliminated all of our water problems and headaches associated with them. In the months since its been done we have not had one problem. We even saved tons of money on our electric bill each month due to no longer having to have a dehumidifier running all the time and an air purifier running at all times and a sump pump that pumped every 4-5 minutes. I would highly recommend this company and the systems they install. All work was done with great quality.Jeff K. in Leominster, MA
Mike scheduled free appraisal right away. He was on time, polite and informative. He was very patient as I had some follow up questions in the following weeks as I received more/different information from other contractors. The pricing was good compared with the others. The crew did a good job with the removal of old debris and installations of vapor barriers in two crawl spaces. Happy with the result and would recommend.John C. in Medford, MA
Extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable company. The crew arrived on time every day, were very polite and ran an impressively neat job site in spite of such a messy job. They finished on time and the owner followed up with a call to check in to see if I was satisfied and had any additional questions --- you just do not see that level of customer service these days. I would highly recommend this company!Kristen S., Ashby, MA
Everyone that works for this company provides exceptional service. They installed a Basement Waterproofing Solution that is top quality. Those that worked in the basement installing the system worked hard, were punctual and did a very high quality job.Cliff B., Leominster, MA
Excellent, I would definitely hire them again.Sherman L., Norton, MA
Mike was honest & reasonable with his repair recommendations. He was personable & easy to work with. He solved the problem quickly. I would definitely recommend him!Lori H., Webster, MA
Highly recommended! If you want a person to actually call you back and provide service, Mike is your guy! After 13 years I started getting water in the basement and Mike and his team have completely solved the problem. I did all my research (loads of it) and after reaching out to three companies for quotes, Premier Basement provided the best service, price and quality. They answered all my questions immediately and did not force the sale. Mike took the time to explain the project and estimate. His team showed up on time, completed it on schedule and Mike followed up to ensure our problem was solved. Premier Basement will get the job done for you, reliably and professionally.Bob D.,Leominster
We hired Premier Basement Waterproofing to do some work on the foundation. It couldn't have been a fun job, as our basement is very low and uninviting. The team did a great job, start to finish. They were friendly and courteous, as well as professional and hard-working. They made sure the job was done right, even though it meant coming back out for one more visit. I would highly recommend, and would absolutely call them again if the need arose.Carissa and David J., Winthrop, MA
The end result of the work Premier Basement Waterproofing did surpassed my expectations. The hardworking, professional guys did an outstanding job in record time. Would highly recommend them.Jane K. Leominster, MA
These are the most honest people you will ever meet. I was concerned about a few issues in the basement and Ian said I had nothing to worry about. I called in the AM and he was here at 2:30 PM. He could have robbed me blind, as some other companies wanted to do, but he was as honest as could be. I HIGHLY recommend this company.Marshall H., Holden, MA
Highly recommended. Mike and his partner did an excellent job helping us with water mitigation in our finished basement. I wish I had worked with them prior to having finished my basement, but they helped us now with a well planned drainage system. Mike took the time to explain the project and estimate. We could reach him anytime, and he maintained great communication. After the project, Mike followed up to ensure our problem was solved. This team will get the job done for you, reliably and professionally.Frantz G., Seekonk, MA
I called Michael after having recurring issues with my sump pump. Michael returned my phone call and fixed my issue promptly. He installed a new, more powerful Ion Genesis sump pump, which has worked flawlessly since. Michael was available, professional and efficient. If you have any questions or issues regarding your sump pump, I would highly recommend Michael.Veronique C.,Cambridge, MA
We have been in Mass. only 5 months when we realized we had a serious problem with our remolded basement. There were several options, but thank the good Lord, we listened to Michael. The process they have developed is by far the best! We have a livable space without the smell or even the possibility of water. The employees, all had great attitudes. The company kept all of there commitments. That is something not every contractor can say. Simply said, we are pleased to say....Premier is the Best !!!!Dennis A., Dunstable, MA
The team at Premier basement waterproofing is truly top notch. My husband and I were so impressed by their professionalism and knowledge about waterproofing. We had a number of contractors look at helping us with our basement and we chose Premier because of their experience, understanding of the best products for basements vs. the rest of the house, and just how friendly and easy they were to work with. We highly recommend them.Stacey L.
Having a summer home turned year round that only has a crawl space and only had a couple of feet and less to work in posed a problem how to adequately insulate the perimeter. After meeting with Corey Leblanc and discussing my options I choose to have him encapsulate the entire area. To my delight my fuel bill this year was cut by over 30 percent and my furnace doesn't run constantly. I didn't think I was going to see the return on that investment so quickly. After my furnace tech viewed what was done he had to install a fresh air return to the furnace and commented on the professional workmanship and wanted Corey's number. I would recommend Corey for any one of his services and gladly speak with you if you have any questions. Thanks again Corey.Dave A. in Lake Monomonac, MA
Great work crew and team leader.....they worked great as a unit and knowing their tasks. Teamwork was simply the best I've experienced with this type of a project.! Delivered on their project and product. Their confidence and statements and answering ALL my questions gave me good confidence in their work.Douglas R. in Bow, NH
Michael's crew was professional through the whole process. They even wrapped all the items I had moved to the center of the room with plastic to cut down on the dust. Work area was cleaned up each night and the work was finished on time. I would highly recommend this company.Richard E. in Lynnfield, MA
Michael took the time to answer all questions we had in a timely manner. work was done very professionally,I would recommend them to anyone I know who needed basement work. He also told us we could call any time if the need arises, with any concerns or questions. Very pleased with the outcome. It give us peace of mind.John G. in Manchester, NH
Amazing guys. They did amazing work and were very patient with our questions and very professional.Vincent R. in Pepperell, MA
Hardworking and professional team. Had a drain and sump pump system installed. It was great working with them.Chuck D. in Bolton, MA
The entire experience is very positive from the sales call meeting with Mike who is the owner. He took his time to explain to me about the proposal and options. Since I was pressed for time, he was also able to pencil me in for an appointment after we agree on the work. Mike's crew showed up on time and perform the work as discussed. They were polite, professional and organized. The crew was respectful and encourage communications and questions. Mike and his crew use top notch qualify product to install the French drain as well as a sump pump with the latest technologies. The most impressive thing about Premier Basement is that Mike stands behind every single project he took on and guarantees the results for the life of the structure. That was a huge factor for me personally as I only want a permanent fix. Mike made me feel comfortable during the entire process and has earned my trust as a service provider. I would highly recommend for any home-owner who is seriously looking for one of the best basement waterproofing company out there.Vincent L. in Framingham, MA
We had a really tough project on the house with the large crawl space which needed cleaning/insulating/waterproofing etc. Michael went out to the site and provided me with a detailed plan. Cory and his team (3-4 guys) showed up on time and did a great job. They found some additional issues with supports for the home, and addressed as much as they could while staying within the same timelines provided for completing the project. It cost us additional money but it was very reasonable. Great customer service throughout the process. would do business with this company again!Yana L. in Gilmanton, NH
These guys know their stuff. The crew is hard working and customer focused as well. They made the best of the unpleasant situation and worked the job to completion without complaint. We were left with a feeling of confidence that we got the right guys for the right job and that all will be well in our basement from now on.Nancy W. in Nashua, NH
I am putting my home up for sale and was advised by the realtor that the garage floor had serious problems - numerous and significant foundation cracks, seriously uneven areas, stains and pet odors. I contacted Michael at Premier, and he and Corey responded the next day to visit the home and identify possibilities for repair and diagnose any foundation problems which may have resulted in the cracks as well as methods that might be used to remove the pet odors. They made it clear that their objective was to provide the best service at the lowest cost, which I truly appreciated. Having no knowledge of this area of construction, I feel like I was thoroughly informed of the alternatives. It turns out that the garage floor was improperly installed decades ago, and frost heaves resulted. They advised that the most cost effective alternative would be to jack hammer out the floor and pour concrete for a new floor. To prevent cracks from happening in the future, a frost barrier was recommended. (Ugh! I thought. That's going to be really expensive.) I was so pleased at the quote I received in the detailed written proposal. Work was completed quickly and on schedule. The quality is excellent and well worth the investment. I received an offer on the house before it went on the market and at significantly above the asking price.Joyce C., Waltham, MA
Thanks Michael and Corey!
My basement has been completely dry since PBW put in a waterproofing system, even after some very rainy seasons (and I'm at the bottom of a hill). I am able to have my laundry down there and all my storage. In comparison to the other quotes I received, PBW was by far the least expensive even though it is obvious they use the best materials. It was icing on the cake that the PBW employees were super friendly and professional. They were in and out of my house in one day. I highly recommend PBW for an easy, pleasant experience that will leave your basement dry.Jessica A. in Winchendon, MA
I have had issues with water in my basement for as long as I have owned my home, a constant source of stress due to the myriad of complications that can cause inside a home. Mike Albert and his Team at PBW came in with the expert knowledge and equipment to properly correct the issue, they went above and beyond to make sure all of my concerns were met and I now have a dry home and a useable safe basement!Sean R. in Lunenburg, MA
Over the course of four weeks, I had recently semi-finished a gymnastics/dance area in my basement to surprise my daughter for her birthday. With less than a week before her birthday and the project 95% complete, a rain storm hit and I found a rather significant amount of water leaking through a basement wall crack -- all over and right in the middle of all the floor & wall mats I had already installed. Ugh.D.F., Rehoboth, MA
Once I took a breath and counted to ten, my first thought was to go buy some hydraulic cement from a big box store and patch it, but I quickly realized that would only be a band-aid solution and a decision I would later regret. I then began my research and thought that an epoxy injection method by a professional was most appropriate.
I created a post on Thumbtack.com in search of a professional who could get the job done. Michael from Premier Basement Waterproofing quickly responded (on Saturday) and we had a conversation. He explained that, given my house was only built two years ago, the crack would only get bigger over the years and that an epoxy injection was still just going to be a band-aid (and could potentially even make the problem worse). He then fully described the solution he very confidently uses for issues such as this and backs with a 100% warrantee -- for life! Given his long-time waterproofing experience & expertise, coupled with our thorough conversation and his reasonable price and willingness to work within my time constraints (I still needed to re-finish the gym area before Friday), I green-lighted him for a Thursday job.
Michael was thorough with his proposal and establishing the timeline when I could expect Corey (Michael's business partner at PBW) to contact me on Thursday so I could leave my office and make it home on-time to meet their employee (I'm blanking on his name). Come Thursday, I heard from Corey at three minutes before the expected call time indicating the installer would be at my house an hour later. When I arrived at my house exactly an hour later, he was already there waiting for me. I quickly showed him the issue, we talked through the solution again, and he got to work. Two hours later, he requested I come down to the basement. Upon going down there, the project was completed as Michael (and the installer) had originally described and the entire area was already swept clean. His employee showed me exactly what he had done, what to expect for drying time, and asked if I had any questions. Once my questions were thoroughly answered, he cleared out.
When I spoke with Michael to pay by credit card over the phone (as we had originally agreed), his first question was "are you happy with everything?" and ensured I fully understood that if anything occurs where the water issue returns at anytime in the future, he stands behind his company's work 100% and to call his mobile phone any day at any time for an immediate follow-up.
I will be re-finishing the gym area on-time for my daughter's birthday tomorrow as if the water issue never happened, with a solution that will never involve water in that area of the basement again.
Don't bother elsewhere -- Premier Basement Waterproofing is where it's at... A+
Much thanks, Michael and team. Now, let it pour!
