Poor preparation of soil, compacted soil, rocks and root systems are just some of the issues that can cause poor drainage. Waterlogging then occurs, which can destroy lawn features that are visible on the surface. However, another potentially more serious problem may manifest beneath your landscape.

We were having water in our basement every time it rained hard. We feared the worst, and called Parks’ Waterproofing for an estimate. After inspecting our basement, Jody told us that the issue was a $10 pipe that we could replace ourselves. He could have tried to sell us an expensive system that we didn’t need but he was honest. We are grateful for this honest business.

As a real estate agent in the Triad, I can tell you that many major issues found in homes originate from improper water management. The first time I met with the Parks' Waterproofing, I could tell that they were the real deal. This team really knows their stuff! Parks' Waterproofing installed their patented, lifetime warranty, free-flowing waterproofing system around the entire perimeter of a family member's house to prevent water under the house, which was causing a huge mold problem. I have also used Parks' Waterproofing to install below grade drainage for my gutter system, plus, adding a catch basin under my deck, and grading. They did an amazing job! 5/5, highly recommended to anyone!

If you are having water problems in your basement or house...CALL PARKS WATERPROOFING! Jody listens, takes detailed notes, then lays out a plan of attack to eliminate the issue. We made the mistake of hiring a General Contractor first because they had the time to come out sooner than Parks. Big mistake that cost my parents a great deal of money. Believe me, wait for Parks. It is worth the wait. Even though Parks was busy, he updated us weekly with a spreadsheet showing us exactly where we were on his list. We never had to call him. After he fixed our problem, which required a great deal of digging and grading, his team came out and landscaped those areas and planted grass seed. My parent's yard has never looked this good. My only complaint is that Jody will not tell me what his seed blend is or sell it to me. JODY, what is your secret??? I highly recommend Parks Waterproofing and on a personal note, Jody is a good man. He actually cares about his customer. Regards, Greg

Wow! These guys are AMAZING! We had a huge problem in our crawl space. They assessed the problem, made recommendations, and gave us the estimate. They totally explained everything so we had an understanding of what would happen. They were here for over a week, did extensive work inside and out of the crawl space, including installing a sump pump with WiFi alarm, and rerouted some exterior drain pipes. They cleaned up after themselves too! Their customer service is absolutely incredible, before/during/and after! I give them a 5 star rating, but in reality, they are a PERFECT 10!!!

Dave W.

Very professional firm from beginning to end. Responded in a timely manner in the beginning answering questions and providing a quote. Once we signed the contract they promptly scheduled the work. The did quality work on time and in budget (didn’t come back asking for more money). This particular project was challenging due to terrain and confined spaces but they made the job look easy. They also cleaned up very good at the end. Excellent service!

Emily N.

These guys are AMAZING! Very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and reasonably priced! We can’t say enough good things about them! Problem solved in a very thorough and comprehensive way!!! Highly recommend them!!!!

Jeff H.

I would like to recommend Parks’ Waterproofing Company. I have been having water issues for some time now and called Jody out to take a look at the problem. During his assessment he was able to determine that a much cheaper solution was my best option. I appreciate Jody’s honesty and integrity by not taking advantage of the situation and telling me the more expensive option was the only way to fix the problem. His honesty saved me literally thousands of dollars.

Rosalee P.

We could not be happier with our job. Please relate to all who worked at our home how much we appreciate their efforts in completing our job before the snow arrived. We have never had a group of workers who worked with such enthusiasm and displayed a sense of pride in their work. Those traits are hard to find in today’s workplace. Thanks again.
