  • "We will recommend you, we were very pleased!" Read Full Testimonial

    Gary S. of New Berlin 53151, WI

    Customer Testimonial

              Chris had a well laid out presentation and took time to study what was needed. He was not pushy. You had a fair price and I liked the strength of the I beam and the fact that it was adjustable. Crew was courteous and efficient. They took the time to move a sump pump drain pipe so that the PowerBrace would not block a window, very much appreciated. I was fearful of a mess and snow and mud being tracked in and my woodwork getting marred. I was surprised none of this occurred, they were very careful. We also appreciate the letter you sent out in advance telling us about our Foreman, Alan.

              The sales rep was very informative and convincing. I chose Badger based on the price and the guarantee. The crew was courteous and the cleanup was satisfactory.

    Customer Testimonial

              The sales representative was nice and low pressure. We chose Badger Basement because our son in law said, "Don't even bother getting other estimates."

    Leaky Basement In La Valle Vacation Home

    This Illinois customer discovered water in his vacation home basement in La Valle, WI.  He acted quickly and had us out to provide him with a free estimate.  It didn't take long for him to decide that he wanted us to waterproof his basement.  We did full perimeter water control along with a SuperSump pumping system and an UltraSump Battery Backup.  Now he can rest easy knowing that while away, his vacation home is protected.
