"This is an amazing company and would highly recommend them to anyone. My fiance and I brought a house with seepage issues that we were not aware about untill after we closed.. Out of all the waterproofing companies that we called the Real Seal was not only the best price but the most honest.. They clearly explained our problem and advised us on our options. The crew that they sent out to do the work was hardworking and curtious. The owner took lots of pictures to show me the work that they did and personally called me after the job was done to see if i was satified. I would recommend them to anyone who has seapage issues!" - Richard R
"Though it's not an option, I would give Real Seal 4.5 stars. Overall they did an excellent job installing a drain tile system in my leaky basement. The work appears to be well done, their crew worked efficiently, cleaned up after themselves and provided a reasonable price (relative to their major competitors). The deduction is for a mistake they made in locating the pit: they and I both mistook an oil line for a water line to which they planned to connect the sump pump discharge. But the solution they improvised - running the discharge line through the wall and into the sewer along with the gutter downspout (I'll try to post pic) - appears to work great. Most importantly, the owner, Austin, provided awesome customer service throughout. I'm sure Real Seal had to incur some unanticipated costs as a result of that misunderstanding but Austin demonstrated that his top priority is customer satisfaction. I'll let you know if I'm not still satisfied after some heavy rains. I'd definitely recommend The Real Seal." -Marcos F.
"I echo everything that was previously said. Extremely professional and thorough with a personable staff making them easy to work with. Moreover they do great work and stand behind the work being done. They also take the time to walk you through the whole process to remove any ambiguity. I'd recommend to anyone needing their services." - Adnan A.
"These guys ROCK! Talk about doing a great job. I found them on YouTube completely on accident by watching their "how to" video. These guys make it look easy. It's not easy at all. I will definitely be back for any future work I need done. Professional and informative is how I would describe them. Plus, they cleaned up after themselves. Two thumbs up!" - Kamila L.
"With all of the shady contractors I've come across it's important to point out an affordable and professional service and this is one of them. We had some seepage in a section of our basement for awhile and had an estimate done by a company quite awhile ago. They told us that in order to fix the problem the neighbor's sidewalk in between the houses would have to be ripped up (yes you read that right). Recently I was searching for another estimate and was fortunate enough to come across The Real Seal. The leak was found at the time of the estimate and within a week or so these guys came out and it hasn't leaked since. Great service and great people!" - Patricia G.
"A+ company. Ben is great, explains things well, responds to phone calls, patient. One of the few companies out there that actually does what they say they will do. Workers came exactly on time or early. Got drain tiles, indoor. Very professional all the way through. They had to come, back a few weeks later to add to the job, did not charge me. When obtaining estimates for the job, they were very reasonably priced. Also, 2 contractors providing estimates on my subsequent remodel asked me who did my drain tiles. They both said it was a very good job. Also lifetime warranty. Over a month, big rains and no more water. Thanks for a job well done guys." - Rand H.
"I totally recommend The Real Seal! Joel was on time, very polite and found the problem within a short time (turns out, the foundation is fine). Very honest, competent service." - Simone G.
"All three cracks still sealed perfectly - no water in the basement since having them fixed. Nice!" - Q.C.
"The Real Seal came out and gave me a quote on repairing a chronic leak due to how the foundation was cut for the i-beams. The quote was timely and professional, and the rep was able to answer all my questions. The rep was able to quote, discuss, and electronically schedule my appointment based on the team's availability on the spot. We arranged for the work to be done while we were out of town, and even though the first snow/ice storm had reared it's ugly head they had no problem doing the dig, repair, and clean-up. They even honored my request for pictures of the repair for my later reference, and provided multiple pictures showing every step of the process. While I was tempted to DIY this repair - and probably could have - I feel it was well worth the bit extra to have them do it AND provide the lifetime (TRANSFERABLE) warranty. We've had quite a bit of water since this repair and while I still check every time..not a drop has appeared since." - Joe C.
"Ben was professional, polite, gave a detailed quote, and explained the work they would be doing to fix two foundation cracks in our basement. They were on time and finished the job in about 4 hours. The final bill was a bit less than quoted, so we were doubly happy!" - Anita S.
"Was recommended Real Seal by a friend. I was actually looking at one of the bigger well known companies. Glad i had Real Seal come out an give a free estimate. A few days later the technician came out and plugged the crack in less than an hour..." - Robert W.
"Austin did an excellent job of evaluating the damage. Price was right on the money. George did a great job of fixing the crack." - Robert P.
"Great service, very attentive and knowledgeable staff, fast and reliable. When we got our estimate, the guy could have tried to sell me a drain tile system, which was way more expensive than just having the crawl lined. But instead he explained that his inspection of our moisture issues showed we didn't need that. Really appreciate that he didn't try to sell me something I didn't need just make some extra $. Also really appreciated he explained the options in detail. We ended up spending less than half of what other companies quoted us. When we finally got the crawl lined a couple weeks later, were very happy with the results. Would recommend this company to anyone who is having moisture issues." - Iris H.
"Had a crack in the basement. Had two other companies come out and they gave us ridiculous estimates, saying all sorts of additional work needed to be done. The Real Seal was the third company I called. They sent someone out in two hours to give an estimate. Quoted me a very fair price to just fix the one crack that was giving us the problem. The next day they sent someone out and the crack was filled in about an hour. Haven't had a leaking issue since. Two thumbs up for these guys. No monkey business, no upselling." - Peter K.
"Fantastic experience all around. Joel was able to come out on short notice, and he arrived promptly. He surveyed our situation and, though he probably could have told me I needed a thousand dollars worth of repairs, he told me there really was no problem. That kind of honesty was much appreciated, and I'll definitely go with this company if I ever need foundation work in the future." - Brian M.
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.
We had several quotes and they were little more expensive. I went with this company because I found them on Angie's List and they offered a lifetime guarantee. And it is transferable to the next owner.
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.
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.
They were fast & efficient. Worked quickly and took care of everything including a total cleanup. Their price was also the best of the 4 estimates. It's been 2 months since they did the job and there's been enough rain to see that everything will stay dry.
These guys ROCK! Talk about doing a great job. I found them on YouTube completely on accident by watching their "how to" video. These guys make it look easy. It's not easy at all. I will definitely be back for any future work I need done. Professional and informative is how I would describe them. Plus, they cleaned up after themselves. Two thumbs up!
real seal gave us a very competitive bid; thousands $$ less than our other bids. arrived on time and did a very good job sealing every crack in our basement. its been a few months now and no water so far. i would use real seal again without hesitation.
“Real Seal is great! Austin explained everything to me in a way that made sense. They installed new window wells, drains, a pump, drain tile and a basement wall cover. My basement is now dry! Thank you Real Seal!”
“I had a number of cracks in my small crawl space. Two cracks were old filled cracks and the rest were new cracks. One crack had water seeping through. They sealed and re-sealed all the cracks. Everything looks great. Service was prompt. Everyone in the company was pleasant.”
