Basement Waterpoofing Can Sound Like Too Much

You may think basements are destined to be damp. Not true! A dry basement is totally achievable with the right waterproofing solution. You can use it a living area or for storage. It all depends on what you want but the possibilities are endless once you waterproof it. 

“Real Seal installed interior drain tile in my 120+ year-old basement. I appreciated their transparency in pricing, their thoroughness and knowledge when estimating and planning out the project, and their communication. Jerry was quick to answer any questions that came up as I did some demo work to prepare before the crew got there. The crew did a great job, completed the project on time, and made sure to keep me updated at the end of each day. I'm very happy with the whole experience.”
