    “Had a basement leak due to some exterior issues. Better Basement assessed the situation and provided a thorough, honest and low-cost solution. The solution didn’t even include their service since it was an outdoor issue. No sales bull, just good, honest service. Will definitely call again if the need arises.”

    Customer Comments: “They came within a week. …. They were very thorough. They took measurements, came up with some ideas and what the concerns were in my basement, which I kind of already knew, but it made me feel better that (we) were thinking the same thing. The owner of the company came out a second time … and make sure that I was comfortable with everything that I was doing. That was really cool. …”

Comments from our Customers:

  • Edward S. in Huxley, IA


    “We had to only wait till this last week to see how well the BBT system would work.

       With close to 8 inches of rain total  in two days on saturated ground we stayed dry.

       I know from past experience we would have had 2 to 3 inches of water in our finished basement.

       Anyone who has had water in the basement knows the pain.   

    Thanks to your dedicated crew,

    Edward S.”
