AquaProof Team


David Barthold

I spoke with Danny at the Home&Garden show recently. He was very easy to converse with and very knowledgeable about Blue Angel sump pumps. He provided me with a lot of useful information on the best method to buy the pumps with the least cost in mind. Being a DIY type guy I truly appreciated that low key,no pressure style of providing me with sales and contact info on how to purchase and with options to install the sump pump.

AcquaProof was called because of an excellent result provided my neighbor. Their service was prompt, thorough and efficient. They corrected a problem that I thought had been taken care of by someone else several years ago.

Mike Brownfield

I called AquaProof because I was sick and tired of cleaning up a watery mess in my basement every time it rained. Danny came to my house, determined the problem and gave me a free estimate. Withing a week his team was out to my house and in one day ended a problem that had plagued me since I moved in. That was 8 years ago. To this day I've not had a drop of water enter the basement. I was so pleased and confident with the work that I turned that area into a Family and bedroom.

Randy Dieter

Aquaproof waterproofed entire house and stabilized a 40' wall nearly two years ago. No hyperbole on the sales pitch... just straight forward facts. I couldn't have ask for better service. They returned within 24 hours to repair minor adjustments and within four hours for a major drainage block, they had no way of knowing about in advance. Aquaproof is a serious company that stands by its work. They followed up to ensure we were completely satisfied. Hats off to the company and it's hard working employees. Thanks, gentlemen!

Why should I contract AquaProof, Inc?

We at AquaProof, Inc are experts at evaluating and fixing your waterproofing and drainage problems. We stand behind our work with a Lifetime Transferable Warranty as we know our systems will stand the test of time if they are maintained.

Is your work guaranteed?

Yes! We have a Lifetime Transferable Warranty with NO annual fees! Many of our competitors offer a Lifetime Warranty but have an annual fee to keep the warranty valid! No annual fees here to keep your warranty! We do have a small warranty transfer fee due when transferring the warranty to a new owner which can be made by the seller or the buyer within 60 days of the settlement date.

Do you offer coupons or discounts?

We have many offers out there like Referral Discounts and Rewards, Angie’s List member discounts and a discount on our website to name a few.

What are all the services that you offer?

Our services range from exterior/interior basement waterproofing, permanent crack repair, sump pump installation, yard lines (french drains), interior/exterior crawl space waterproofing, beam installation for bowing walls, pier installation for sinking foundations, window well drains, downspouts, 6” gutters and gutter cleaning.

How much will a residential drainage system cost?

Unfortunately, this question has a huge range so it is impossible to answer without details on your particular situation. Our systems our customized to fix your issues; we do not have one system that we apply to everyone’s issue.

Who will be supervising my project?

Each jobsite is assigned to a foreman who will be in charge of the project and the crew on the site. Your Sales Representative will also make visits to the site to make sure everything is going as planned and to answer any questions you may have.

Do you provide free consultations or estimates?

Yes, we provide free estimates to homeowners and require all owners of the property to be present when we come out to give the estimate. If a home is in a buying/selling situation there is a small fee for the estimate as the estimate is usually used as a bargaining tool from our experience.

What about phone lines, electric lines, gas lines, and other utilities that are in the path of my project?

By law, we are required to contact the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (or similar organization in your area) before beginning any digging project. They will come out and spray paint or mark with flags all public lines in your yard. Any private lines like to pools, sheds or lamp posts will have to be marked or pointed out as best as possible when the crew arrives. AquaProof Inc is NOT responsible for repairs to any damaged private lines or sprinkler systems. If we hit a line we will notify you of where it was hit and do our best to try and repair the line.

Can we finish our basement with confidence that it will stay dry?

Yes! We stand behind our work and that is why we can offer such a great Lifetime Transferable Warranty! However, new problems can arise and we can only stand behind the work we performed. Things like new homes in your neighbourhood, new patios or other new construction items can all change the layout of the land around you which will cause a change in the flow of water which could mean an increase in water coming on to your property.

Can I just paint my walls with waterproofing paint instead?

We highly recommend that you don’t! Doing nothing about a water problem would be a better solution than painting the walls/floors with the waterproofing paints. These paints allow the water to build up in your foundation walls since the water can no longer go through the walls. This build up causes more damage than the water simply running through your walls as it causes the foundation to deteriorate faster!
