We recently purchased a home, and mold was found due to moisture in the basement. After the mold issue was resolved, we decided to waterproof the basement to avoid further issues. Blue Umbrella was highly recommended. They did a great job. They installed 2 heavy duty 1/2 horsepower sump pumps, 2 emergency battery backup sump pumps with built in high water alarms, 1 heavy duty Santa Fe dehumidifier which removes up to 70 pints a day of water from the air, and installed 14mil vapor barrier on exterior walls, stops moisture penetration, lifetime warranty. I was unaware of how much work is involved to waterproof a basement. They did a lot of work which would take another page to list everything they did! Their price was fair, and it was worth every penny for our own peace of mind! When the Town Inspector returned to see the final results, the first thing he said was “neat job, very good”We will be enjoying our basement for many years!Thanks Steve from Blue Umbrella!

Our basement had been very wet. Everyday, we were sopping and vacuuming water. We finally had enough and gave Blue Umbrella a call. We can’t say enough good things about the work they did for us. Steve spent a lot of time with us discussing our water issue and offering us solutions. The men worked hard and finished on time. They cleaned up after themselves. You wouldn’t have known we had all that debris outside. We added a dehumidifier along with the French drain system. The basement is drier than we have ever had it. We are so pleased. We have already recommended them to a neighbor.

Steve Karlik is wonderful to work with, reliable, honest and fair. His team showed up when expected and worked diligently all day to waterproof our basement. During recent heavy storms our basement remained dry, so we're exceedingly pleased. Pricing is competitive and reasonable. We highly recommend Blue Umbrella Waterproofing and intend to use them to install a dehumidifier.

The crew headed by foreman Jefferson did a tremendous and beautiful job on the basement waterproofing. They arrived early, were professional and cleaned up nicely after themselves. The company owner (Steve) was in constant communication a few days prior to the work beginning and throughout the day of the job until completion. Also the price was very competitive to other quotes I had received from other companies. I think what makes them standout is that they use higher quality pipes, pumps, and equipment for a similar price than other companies. I would highly recommend.

Hired Steve and Team to repair and redesign a unique french drain in my basement. Steve is very passionate and caring about the work that he does and this clearly showed. His team worked quickly and efficiently and did a fantastic job remediating the problem I had. His pricing was also very fair and he was easy to communicate with and always responded quickly. It has now been several months since the job was completed and I can happily report that he solved my problem!

Ownership - Outstanding!!Customer Service - Outstanding!!Quality of Work - Outstanding!!Steve and his team at Blue Umbrella were fantastic. Steve took the time to talk with my wife and I and explain every detail that was going to be done. the crew finished the job in under a days time and were nothing but excellent. We have had the Water Company and another homeowner over to our new home since the job has been completed and both have said how great the waterproofing job looked and the Water company actually asked who did the job, so they could recommend Blue Umbrella. If you need waterproofing done and are looking for quality service and outstanding work, run don't walk to Steve and his Blue Umbrella team !

Blue Umbrella just put a french drain in my basement that had water in 2 areas. Steve & John were great to work with during the proposal phase. Steve spent a lot of time explaining the solution to me and really thinking through what options would be the best for our house. Pricing was very reasonable.The crew did an amazing job. We could not believe how efficient and organized they were and we are very happy w/ the install. This is not a 'fun' project to have to do, but Blue Umbrella made it as painless as possible and we look forward to enjoying our dry basement for many years.

John and Steve responded to my inquiry quickly. The price was very reasonable compared to another company I received a quote from. Plus they were willing to give me more waterproofing protection than the other company. This business recognizes first responders and veterans. I was able to get the project started quickly because of that. I highly recommend them.

We moved into our house about a year ago. The basement had one sump pump, but the water table in our area is high so we were getting a lot of moisture and sediment on the walls, as well as some small wet spots on the concrete floor. We would like to be able to finish the basement in the not too distant future and even the little bit of water that we were getting would have prevented us from moving forward with any additional improvements to the basement. It also helped attract spiders and kept us from wanting to go down there at all. We got quotes from Steve and one other waterproofer in the area, both of whom were recommended by a very reputable local water-remediation guy. Both companies had similar methods, but used different products/systems. While I felt both quotes were reasonable, the Blue Umbrella quote was slightly lower. But it was more than price that led my decision. My wife and I both liked the focus on keeping everything very clean, hanging tarps to keep dust from moving upstairs, using fans to pull dust outside, etc. Additionally, the system that Blue Umbrella uses is the industry standard and I felt more secure. The day that the team came to install the French drain, they were very efficient and kept me informed the entire time. Once they had opened up the floor, they brought me down to look at the footer and I could see the amount of water that was sitting under the house. It was definitely more than I expected. We have a decent sized basement, and there were a lot of obstacles to work around, but the team completed the job in a single day. The concrete finishing looks great…probably better than the concrete that was there before. The entire system is sealed up and we now have two sump pumps clearing the water out of the house. It has been a little over a month since it was installed, and every time I go down to the basement I notice that the floor is completely dry all around and the air just seems drier. I am currently monitoring the humidity levels to verify if my old dehumidifier is working properly, but it already feels better. I would recommend Steve and the guys at Blue Umbrella to anyone I know. The team was courteous and professional, and they did a great job, leaving me with a really great finished product. The team was top notch and Steve is very trustworthy. He’s honest with you right from the start and keeps you in the loop throughout the process. Great guy, great team, great company, great job!

Wow, just WOW! Steve and his team did an amazing job! And his quote was one of the least expensive of the 4 we asked for. Steve made us feel like family with his offer, and suggestions. Most importantly, the execution of the job was actually the best part out of this whole experience. His team moved all of our things into the middle of the basement and CLEANED as well as mopped when they finished. Cannot say enough about my experience with working with Blue Umbrella. There is usually some type of catch or the finished product is not what is expected. Not with blue umbrella! If you are looking for the best pricing AND the best work, you only have to make one call... blue umbrella! -Chris Belsky from Roselle Park nj.
Blue Umbrella Waterproofing is TOP NOTCH! We purchased a house in July 2018 and had to gut the entire house because of flooded basement and mold all over the house. We were diligent and got 3 quotes from 3 separate companies. Not only did Blue come in with the lowest estimate, but their reviews were stellar. I spoke with Steve K and he immediately made me feel comfortable and confident in the level of work they do. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a team of men work so hard. To see the Blue team on their knees and with jack hammers and even their hands was humbling. This was HARD work and they acted as if it were easy. The job was difficult because of all the corners and turns, then also because of the window well wall that needed extra drainage. I was approached with great respect regarding having to add the additional drainage for added cost. The “Blue Team Lead” explained the necessity for additional drainage until I fully understood. Never, in the 3 days that Blue Umbrella was at my house, did I see anything but professional, hard working and kind men. They left my house immaculately clean...you could eat off the floors! It was the best decision we have ever made. I have and will always recommend Blue Umbrella for all your waterproofing needs. Thanks for giving me peace of mind!***This Blue Team is a class act!***

Nothing but good things to say about the Blue Umbrella Waterproofing Company. I live in a flood zone and constantly was having water issues in my basement. They came same day I called to look at the problem and recommended that I get French drains. Also recommended to get a drain running across the basement floor where most of the water was entering from. They came a few days later and installed it in no time. They also installed a brand new pit and sump pump that was more efficient for my type of house. After the work was completed I have not had any more water entering my basement. All of the workers were professional and courteous. I would definitely recommend Blue Umbrella Waterproofing to anyone having water issues. For the amount of work that was done their prices are very reasonable. You will not be disappointed going with them.

Blue Umbrella recently installed two sump pumps and french drain system in our basement. They did excellent job from first consultation to final installation. Communication is excellent. Steve is very knowledgable and patient with all of our questions and concerns. The crew is on- time and experienced. They are very good at what they do, and easy to communicate with. They made the work area clean and neat afterwards. Now the basement is dry and ready to finish. Thank you Blue Umbrella!

No unpleasant surprises along the way, and communication with Steve was super smooth. We are tough customers and I highly recommend Blue Umbrella. Price was competitive as well.

Excellent company to work with.Steve thoroughly reviewed the seepage problem were having in our basement before recommending a solution.He explained every step of the work that would be done and quoted us a very reasonable price. We scheduled the job for 9:00 am on a Saturday - Steve’s crew arrived at 8:45 am.They were professional, courteous & and extremely concerned about keeping our house & basement clean while they did their work. The new French drain system took about 5 hours to install and when Steve’s guys left you could not tell that they were working in our basement - no dirt or dust left anywhere.If you have a wet or damp basement problem, I highly recommend Steve at Blue Umbrella Waterproofing to do the job.

I’ve got my french drain with pump installed about 10 months ago. I highly recommend Steve, he’s great professional; he explained everything in detail, there was no unexplained items, nor extra charges later on . Everything was perfectly done on schedule as promised, in one or two days, basement and entire work area left cleaner than before. The price was very reasonable as well. My basement didn’t have one drop of water on floor nor walls since then .

After seeing all the flooding in town, I'm so unbelievably glad they did my basement. It's been bone dry ever since! Great team that works efficiently, with an age old pride of workmanship. Plus they're on top of clean-up when all is done. I couldn't be happier and would be hard pressed to find anyone I would recommend more. They're simply superb!!!

Highly recommended!!! Steve came and explained what was needed to be done, and how they would proceed. The job was started and completed as promised. The crew was efficient and clean, they dismantled only what was needed for the job, and nothing else, (less than i had imagined) which means I have very little to repair. I would hire again, and recommend to friends and family. Thank you Steve, Wilson and the crew.
