Ameri-Dry® Waterproofing & Home Foundation Repair Checklist
We offer our customers throughout Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee a dedicated waterproofing and home foundation repair service by adhering to the checklist below:
|AMERI-DRY'S ® UNIQUE OWNERSHIP PROGRAM
Every homeowner receives the benefit of personalized waterproofing and home foundation repair services from a locally-owned office that is backed by a strong National Company.
|OVER 30 YEARS OF WATERPROOFING EXPERIENCE
We are an experienced basement waterproofing contractor that has spent more than three decades performing research and making technical advancements in waterproofing on a national level.
|ARCHITECTURAL TESTING, INC. EVALUATED
The Ameri-Dry ® system for waterproofing basements, crawlspaces, and foundations has been independently tested and evaluated by Architectural Testing, Inc. (Report # 01-37677.04)
|BOCA-ES EVALUATED SYSTEMS
Ameri-Dry ® Waterproofing and Home Foundation Repair systems have been evaluated by BOCA-ES for your protection. (Research Report Number 96-4 & 97-66)
|U.S. PATENTED SYSTEMS
Ameri-Dry ® Waterproofing and Home Foundation Repair systems are protected by U.S. Patent Pending.
Ameri-Dry ® uses the exclusive, patented "Dead Air Space Technology" that has been specifically manufactured and engineered for Ameri-Dry ®. Other basement waterproofing contractors use slitted, corrugated plastic pipe covered with gravel, which tends to calcify and restrict the flow of water.
|DRILLING OF WEEPHOLES
When Ameri-Dry ® is waterproofing basements, we pay attention to all the details. Our waterproofing experts drill weepholes in every core of the bottom course of blocks - including mortar joints. When weepholes are missed, water remains in the wall.
|USE OF AMERI-SEALER ® WALL SEALER
Ameri-Dry ® seals your basement walls with our exclusive Ameri-Sealer ®. This is a non-permeable waterproofing material that is anti-toxic, anti-smoke, and anti-flame.
|PERMANENT SEALING OF GAPS THROUGH CLOSED COVE
Ameri-Dry ® leaves no open gap between the floor and the walls, which would allow water, bugs, vermin, and odors to enter your home.
|STOPPAGE OF ALL EIGHT CAUSES
Ameri-Dry ® addresses all eight ways water enters your basement, providing permanently dry basement waterproofing solutions.
|NO INJECTION OF EXTERIOR WATERPROOFING SUBSTANCES
Be aware! Some basement waterproofing companies use the injection of exterior waterproofing substances, which is not a recommended treatment. "The Original Basement Waterproofing Handbook" states (The problem resulting from this procedure is always the same – failure of the product to spread enough to do any real good.) The Handbook further states (So take care, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development states in its “Manual of Acceptable Practices” for properties that must pass FHA inspection for loan guarantees “Pressure injected waterproofing has not demonstrated a satisfactory performance and is not acceptable under HUD standards. Failure of a house to pass FHA – or other financial inspections – can be a major problem.) Ameri-Dry DOES NOT use this method.
|WORK THAT IS LICENSED-BONDED-INSURED
For your protection, Ameri-Dry ® carries over $4,000,000 in liability insurance.
Ameri-Dry ® employees, installers, and technical staff go through intensive training on all aspects of waterproofing technology AND receive updated field training throughout the year.
All Ameri-Dry ® offices are subject to random quality control checks by representatives from the National Office. This assures you that we adhere to Ameri-Dry’s ® proven and tried methods of waterproofing basements and crawlspaces. We use only the highest quality materials in our patented waterproofing system.
|COMPANY SET PRICE SCHEDULE
Ameri-Dry ® quotes all prices from a printed price schedule — not what the traffic will bear.
Ameri-Dry ® invites you to examine our complete customer list and select any name for checking. We also urge you to contact your local Better Business Bureau and local Home Improvement Commissions for a full report on Ameri-Dry ® and our competitors.
Ameri-Dry ® issues you a Full Life-of-the-Structure Warranty. The Ameri-Dry ® Warranty meets Federal Trade Commission Guidelines as a FULL WARRANTY according to the Magnuson-Moss Act. Some companies offer a Limited Warranty; others even require an annual charge for renewal. Ameri-Dry ® does not!
|WARRANTY LEFT WITH THE CUSTOMEty

Ameri-Dry ® warranties are registered locally and also with our National Headquarters to insure you receive uninterrupted coverage. For your convenience, our National Office Number is 1-800-580-1964
