Basement Waterproofing Testimonials
"The work is done neatly and my wife tells me that the basement already smells drier and less musty. I am happy and confident the investment in refinishing the basement spaces [after JES waterproofed] will create a more comfortable and healthier space."
~ Robert H., Alexandria, VA
"The foreman was fantastic at explaining every step to me and really putting me at ease. When he had finished, I felt confident about his work and your company. I felt like he cared and had my best interest in mind."
~ Lance D., Walkersville, MD
"The cleanup was perfect. There didn't appear to be any of the dust that I was expecting, the unfinished basement floor had been swept clean, and there was no debris left behind."
~ Ellen B., Burke, VA
"The crew that did the drainage system and sump-pump was very courteous. The crew that put in the Zen wall went above and beyond to make it look really good."
~ Tom Z., Richmond, VA
We've used JES twice and were very pleased both times. We had a very wet basement, (1950's brick rambler in Falls Church) and had them come in and waterproof about 5-6 years ago. We never had another issue after that. Just before we sold our house, we had them come back to waterproof the other part of the basement (under an addition.) They were professional, courteous, on-time, and cleaned up after. The guy who came to house ahead of time was also great about explaining the process to a "non-handy" person like me. I have no hesitation recommending them. And like I said, we had our main basement waterproofed 5-6 years ago, and haven't had a water issue since.Hope this helps. Good luck!

We did have JES install their Waterguard System and two sump pumps. And, so far so good. We used to get small amounts of water in our basement when it rained hard (two-three days of steady soaking rain), and so far we have had no water come in since they installed the system. We are waiting for a few more big rains before we refinish the basement just to be sure.The crew that did the work did a good job, and I have no complaints. They installed the system just like Joe Houske (the JES salesman we worked with) said they would. By the way, Joe was great to work with!

We had a new sump pump put in with a battery back-up. Also a basement dehumidifier. We have also purchased the warranty service. They will come once a year and check out everything to see that it is working properly. Great peace of mind for us. The crew that came out were very good. Did a great job of cleaning up. We have had two other sump pumps and one wasn't battery backed up and when power was out during a storm one summer we had a flooded basement. So then we went to a battery system. So far we are very pleased with the pump. It is quiet and we are dry. The dehumidifier, necessary for our basement, however is a little noisy. But also keeping the area more comfortable. I would rate this company highly.

JES did a great job. I was impressed with the engineer that came to my house and did a thorough inspection of my stated foundation problems. He then walked me through several options that would fix the issues I was having. There was no pressure to pick the most expensive option. I really didn't have any interaction with the guys who actually came to do the work. They did fix the problem and I have been happy with the results. It would have been nice if the work hadn't been so expensive but in this case you really do get what you pay for. I had heard too many horror stories of home repairs gone bad and I didn't want to take a chance on a company that didn't have JES' reputation.

JES Construction did a great job. It solved the problem of water coming through the basement walls and the walls completely dried out in a couple of weeks so that we could paint them. Some 6 months later the paint looks new and no mold is growing. We received several estimates from companies, and JES was the least expensive and had by far the best guarantee. I would recommend them without hesitation.
