Addressing Homeowners and Contractors in Blogs

For over a year now, on my main blog Safe’n’dry Basement Waterproofing, Foundations and Finishing I’ve communicated with homeowners asking questions about thier own homes as well as getting in touch with contractors nation wide.

Pioneer Basement has a local reputation in Mass. as being the best waterproofing company to refer to clients.  Other companies in the Grate Products Authorized Contractor network have also become house hold names in their local communities.

It takes a great deal of passion, the right technology and skilled staff to make it all work. 

Grate Products LLC is redesigning their site to communicate better with many contractors in their network while providing information, data, and support to customers all over North America.

A Grate Products Blog will be officially announced and released once all the nessesary supports are put into place. This will help contractors receive information faster and from the source. The blog will play a key roll in helping contractors who don’t normally do business with websites to navigate and get the full benifit out of all the sections of the new site, including ones that they might have thought they didn’t need.

Wet Basements in Connecticut Can be fixed: Basement Waterproofing must be licensed first!

The expert basement waterproofing company that I work for has been helping CT overcome their wet basements for over 25 years. Pioneer Basement has also been in Mass and Rhode Island, helping thousands of happy homeowners defend against having to live with a wet basement.

 

The basement waterproofing industry is loaded with unqualified and uninsured people and businesses. It’s important to also consider when looking for a waterproofing contractor what you’re protected against in the future.

 

Contractors who work with improper licenses subject you to little or no coverage against fraud and state protection if something goes wrong with the job they install. Make sure that your contractor is fully insured, not just with liability, but is also fully licensed with the state. Contractors who don’t keep up with their registration with the state are ether too lazy, understaffed, have had their license revoked, or have just never applied.

 

Make sure to contact your state’s department of labor to check that your contractor is suited to work on your home and to help you improve your conditions. Verify their license number that they give you and make sure that they’re up to your state’s standards for coverage. This information is free and open to the public at all times.

 

For basement waterproofing companies, make sure that they are included in your Better Business Bureau. Each state has their own, but if you’re using a contractor that’s licensed in multiple states check their BBB.org record against their home state. This will give you the most accurate and up to date information on where they generally stand with their customers. This information is also free and open to the public.

 

Also make sure to do a quick search on www.nawsrc.org (National Association for Waterproofing and Structural Repair Contractors) to see if they’re registered and meet standards of that organization.

 

Doing a little research first can save you mountains of headaches later. After that, the work is only as good as the crews and the products that are used.
