Basement Waterproofing Testimonials
"Excellent product, sealed up my leaky basement completely. After a $30,000 quote to excavate, install weeping tile and repair crack foundation. Now 5 years later still dry all for $700 also just did a radon test with acceptable levels."
"I purchased your product about a month ago and have been waiting for dry weather to fix the crack in the basement wall. About 10 days ago everything finally dried up and I got the wall cleaned up and your product applied. I waited three days and turned the garden hose on outside for about 20 min. Everything stayed dry but the real test was when we finally got rain this past weekend. We had over 2 inches of rain Saturday and Sunday and I am absolutely elated that I had no leaking water at all. I think the prep work is a critical part, the product was easy to apply."
"Our home was built in 1920 on a poured concrete foundation. However, the concrete floor wasn’t poured until sometime later. We had one spot where the gap between foundation and floor allowed almost constant water into our basement. We’ve been told that previous owners have tried “everything” to stop the flow, which we learned first hand when we prepared to apply Sani Tred. We took out paints of all kinds, including some of the toughest epoxy paints. We ended up having to grind the old stuff off.I am happy to report that the leak is totally stopped; that the toughest spot in our basement has been sealed. Our basement was a real tough one. We are doing the rest of our basement during the next dry spell."
"When I built my house the concrete basement walls leaked. I dug up the house and re-installed a black membrane in accordance with the manufacturer instructions. It leaked again. Then I found Sani-Tred and applied it. I followed the instructions EXACTLY to include using a torch to dry wet areas.
My basement has not leaked for years, even during torrential rains from a hurricane. Not a drop comes through the walls of a 2,700 sq. ft. basement. I also stopped water intrusion through a massive chimney by using Sani-Tred on top of the chimney. I am completely satisfied with the results. Sani-Tred is an excellent product which I recommend without hesitation."
"I am a long time Sani-Tred customer and it goes without saying, a very happy customer… I have used your products to totally seal my basement before finishing it and it gives me complete peace of mind knowing I will never have a problem. Two years ago I applied the Permaflex Al to my wooden deck. The best move I ever made… I was painting it every year but not any more.. It also holds up great to the tough New England winters…"

"As a contractor I use many different materials & products. I have used Sanitred recently on a poor concrete block foundation and I highly recomend the product. This product is now part of our line of products in use."

"I’m happy to say that I have no sump pumps running right now. That’s saying a lot when you consider that this time last year I had 6 pumps running, with 4 that never ever shut off.
Our property suffers from a seasonally perched water table. Needless to say, it was a complete surprise our first winter when 3 x 1/2 HP 2″ discharge pumps weren’t enough to keep the water out. We had a second pit dug and added more pumps but it still wasn’t enough in the spring (and we had 2000′ of 6″ tile on our property!).
Sani-Tred was the only company/product that promised waterproofing from inside the basement. Since we had no leaks in the walls, but rather through any opening or crack in the floor we knew this was our only option. The first big winter rain we had after installing was all the proof we needed. We had a couple of small leaks but they were due to my laziness in application of the LRB. My only hint to others would be to
budget enough LRB to patch all cracks. The product absolutely works, you just have to install it correctly.
I’m now patched and completely happy. No pumps even after a 3″ rain and a 2 foot snow melt! Now we just need to get the insurance companies to recognize how much money this is going to save them in order to lower my rates.."
"I used the Quart Sample Pack to treat a leaking area caused by a crack in my poured concrete foundation. I could never relax when it rained hard (finished basement). The recent heavy rain in NJ fell but I didn’t get one drop in the basement."
"It has been over a year now since we coated the walls and floor of a customers’ basement here in central FL. There has been more rain this year at once then there has been since the basement was originally built and no water whatsoever. This basement has seen 8-12″ of water in the past. So far so good! Next time I come into a waterproofing situation such as this, I won’t do any web surfing, I will immediately place an order with you!"
-Jim Casteel | Statewide Construction Inc.
"I look at it and see a concrete wall which has now been covered with your awesome product! We have had some very wet weather over the past 4 weeks and my basement is dry as a bone! I am very pleased with the performance of the products."
"I recently applied your products to a concrete basement block foundation that previously leaked water badly. Even with small rains, water would trickle in and the blocks were always saturated with moisture. I’m glad I used your products as the basement is completely dry. We recently had 4″ of rain over 2 days and I had no water in the basement. Also it looks 1000 times better than before.I’m sure I saved several thousands over having a waterproofing company come in and install a drainage system."
"Here are some before and after Pictures. I thought I had more before pictures but I had accidentally deleted some out and after I finished the job I moved all of my stuff back down in the basement before I took any pictures of one corner.
I do have some before and after pictures of the clean up and completion, after Cosey Construction company Destroyed my Basement if you would want those also, I will send them anyway in a separate E-mail.
I would like to say we have had three days of rain and there was no water in my basementnot only does my basement look good it’s dry to. This Definitely added value to my home."
"I am writing to tell you that I LOVE your products and your customer service. As a 60 year old woman, doing the work myself was physically challenging but the beauty is that it even I could do it. The products went on easily and the finished product looks beautiful. I learned that it is very important to follow instructions closely in order to get perfect waterproofing, but we now have a perfectly dry basement. Your customer service people were courteous and helpful–Sani-Tred went far beyond the ordinary to be helpful. I also want to express my gratitude for a non-toxic product that doesn’t hurt either me or the environment. Please use my name as a local reference as I know that you are a rare company with a rare product! Thank you again."
"We bought 2 gallons of PermaFlex and applied, and we see the difference it has made already…..love the product!! We are telling our friends about it and ordering more."
-Craig and Kat Withers
"Just a quick email to say thanks. I’ve been fighting a small, nuisance leak in my basement for five years. I used your product and BAM! Problem is fixed. We just received over 5 inches of rain in 4 days and not one drop of water in my basement. Awesome!"
"I wanted to let you know I used your product, PermaFlex and LRB/TAV on the cracks on my basement wall. I’m very impressed with the results. I am confident the leak has been fixed and I can get on with my basement finishing project."
"Your product is great. We had 21 inches of rain from Dec 1st to today in Olympia, WA. My basement is dry for the first time. All are amazed since I drain 10 acres and we had severe flooding nearby."
-Donald C. Paradise
"SANI-TRED solved a score of H20 problems in our basement. Never again will we purchase an existing home or build a new home without first applying your products first. A contractor from Chattanooga, TN that you had recommended did the job (we live in GA). Now, a relative in Wayne, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, needs your “stuff” ASAP!!"
"I have just finished my first basement job using Sani-Tred PermaFlex and LRB. !!! WOW! This job was the worst case scenario, stone walls over 50 years old, deteriorating etc… After the first rain I found your product to perform over and above expectations! Thank you for Sani-Tred."
"I want to express my appreciation to the Sanitred staff for their help with obtaining and supplementing the directions for applying your product. Every phone conversation was pleasant, professional and extremely helpful. Your product is WONDERFUL and has eliminated any water leaks around a glass block basement window that was chronically a problem with every heavy rain. Prior to finding your products through a friend, I received an estimate from a company specializing in sealing basement leaks. Their estimate was nearly $2,000! Thanks to Sani-Tred; I did the job myself for about 10% of that amount. If Sani-Tred ever needs a testament from an EXTREMELY SATISFIED customer, please do not hesitate to contact me. It has been obvious to me that your company places a high priority on customer service."
"I had used Dry-Lok on my cracked poured concrete basement wall previously. A mason had v-eed the crack and applied the Dry-Lok as instructed, internally and externally. Then, I asphalted and placed 8-mil plastic sheeting on the outside. After the first saturating rain, I had the same leak.
I considered other methods of resolving the problem, but held off doing anything for quite a while. I’m glad I did.
Upon receipt of your product I applied as instructed. Yes, me… not a mason or any other craft. Easy instructions to work with and simple prep and tools. I finished the third step, the PermaFlex finish coat one day before predicted heavy rains… 2″ – 4″ predicted. We god close to 4″ total over two days. See Albany, New York weather Saturday April 22, 2006 and April 23, 2006. Your product worked PERFECTLY, as advertised.
I thought the concept might work. You see, I’m a funeral director. Burial vaults are constructed likewise…. A liner is bonded to the concrete.
I have already recommended your product to several other people. I will continue to do so. If I ever have a future need, I will most definitely order again."

"We had an addition built on our home during the winter of 2002-2003. During this time we experienced one of the worst winters ever. It rained all during the construction of our basement and the contractor made numerous mistakes that turned our basement into a swimming pool. Water ran down all 4 walls and I was constantly cleaning up puddles of water from the basement floor.
Our basement is entirely underground and it has 9 foot ceilings. You can imagine how we felt when our walls never dried up and the contractor ran out of ideas on how to correct our wet basement problem. He even suggested that we have the basement filled in with concrete because he thought that there was no hope in keeping our basement dry.
It wasn’t until I found your website and gave your product a try that we began to have hope for our problem basement. After correcting some of the contractor’s mistakes there were still a number of problem areas that I felt would never stay dry. I tackled each wall one at a time and applied your product. In September the job was complete.
Since then, our basement has stayed bone dry! Not one wet spot, not even a questionable drop of water! It even sustained all of the rain we had from hurricane Isabel!!! That damp cool feeling we once felt in our basement is gone for good! Your product is a Godsend and it is without a doubt the BEST WATERPROOFING PRODUCT MONEY CAN BUY. Sure, you do cost more than the competition but I have seen the competition and they will never do what your product does! If I ever meet someone who has a water problem with their basement, I will tell then that Sani-tred corrects the problem and you will never have to worry about it ever again! We are living proof! Thank you!"
"We live in the Seattle area in a house originally built in 1913. The underground basement has always leaked or had at least some seepage during heavy rains. Because of the age of the house and surrounding landscaping, exterior waterproofing via digging up the property was neither feasible nor desirable.
We decided to try Sani-Tred and have been VERY PLEASED with the results. The product was SO EASY to use – my husband and I installed two coats and the LRB in one day on the entire basement area we wanted covered. The instructions were clear and simple and we had no trouble with the product. Two weeks ago the Seattle area experienced severe rains that broke 100-year-old records – but our basement stayed DRY!!! We were thrilled.
Thanks to Sani-Tred, we are looking forward to finishing out the basement and nearly doubling the living space in this house – something that has NEVER been done in the history of the house. What a great product – it does what it says it will do!"
- Melody and Daniel Derrick
"Thanks for all your help. I bought LRB, PermaFlex, and TAV in January. I just now finished the basement due to weather and temp in St. Louis. I love the product. Will order more in the future for my rental house. Need to prep the floors first."
"I ordered your product and used on a basement of one of my houses. I repulsed “Isabel” with no problem. I am interested in being a distributor as we discussed.
I have been in the trades for several years except for 4 years as a stock broker. I am presently buying houses for rehabbing and I am also looking for another business and this is one that seems like it could be very lucrative here in the Cleveland area. I also own a 4000 sq ft building that I would like to sell your product and also some other specialty products out of."
