In my 30 years as a homeowner, I have never had a better experience than dealing with Scaldino. From the initial meeting of the sales rep to the finished product, they were amazing. First, I was very pleasantly surprised that the price was much lower than I had anticipated. When the workers arrived they immediately got to work, breaking up the floor. They assured me it would be done in one day. I didn't think it was possible. It was. The finished product is amazing. We have had three major rain storms including one flood warning in my area, and we have not had a drop of water in the basement. My wife and I kept listening for the pump to go off since our old one sounded like a freight train. I finally noticed it kick on while working in the basement. Had I been another foot away, I would have heard nothing. I strongly recommend Scaldino for your basement needs.

First let me say great service and great end product. The guys came in and where efficient and explained everything to me as they did the job. Service was top notch from the project manager Isaiah, to the crew chief Johnny to the office staff, Christian and Crystal. Very professional.

Thank you again. I'm very satisfied with the service. Especially since today it's raining and there is currently no rain in my basement.

We are extremely satisfied with the work Scaldino Basement Solutions has done with our crawl space and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a crawl space solution. We live in southern NJ surrounded by wetlands. I reviewed approximately 12 companies then selected 3 companies to give us their solutions. After a thorough review of each companies proposal we selected Scaldino Basement Solutions. The technician they sent to review our issues was knowledgeable, friendly, and did not pressure us. He provided a very professional estimate, with exact details of the work to be performed. The work was scheduled in a timely manner. It took three days to complete the required work; grading the crawl, french drain, sump pumps, closing the vents, encapsulation. The workmen were some of the hardest workers I have hired. They amazed me as their work conditions in our crawl was very cramped. They were polite and general contractor always answered any questions I had. My crawl now looks awesome and my house no longer smells. They also did an excellent job cleaning up. When the town building inspector came to inspect the work, he said that it was the best encapsulation that he had ever seen. Also, the office staff was excellent, very professional, friendly, and always following up on any questions I had. I can’t say enough of how impressed I am with Scaldino Basement Solutions. It’s hard now days to find a company that is honest and dependable. Thank you for a job well done.

In August it will be 1 year since I had my system installed. With all the rain we have had in the past year; I am glad I discovered Scaldino's. They came highly recommended by my neighbor so Scaldino's have 2 happy customers on the same block and not a single drop of water in my basement.

Never had a more pleasant experience with any home contractors in the past. Robert from Scaldino Basement Solutions came over to install a new sump pump and did an excellent job. He was courteous, very informative and explained everything thoroughly.

From our first conversation with Debbi to set up an appointment, to Isaiah coming to give an estimate, to the workers performing the work, we could not be more pleased. Everyone was friendly, answered our many questions and worked with us to get the job completed in a timely fashion.
We sought an estimate from another company and after spending a few minutes in our basement, the salesman looked my husband in the eye and rattled off a price. My husband asked “Don’t you put anything in writing?” to which the guy went to his car, wrote a couple of figures on a pad and said “We can do it next week”
When Isaiah came, he not only spent a long time assessing what work needed to be done, but was able to show us photos of what the entire process would entail, explaining in detail every step of the way. Before leaving, he wrote up and printed out a copy of the estimate, which was far more reasonable then the previous one.
Crew chief, John, was one of the hardest working individuals I have met. He was friendly, conscientious and able to explain all the work he and his men performed. Care was given to keep the mess to a minimum during the job and cleanup was well performed.
We certainly made the right choice in choosing Scaldino to solve our wet basement problem.

I called Scaldino this morning stating my sump pump was not working. They scheduled an appointment for Monday but said they would reach out to the techs and see if anyone could come today. Rob came by at 12:30 he was early I was expecting him at 1. He came in explained everything he did to me as he did it. Once the new pump was installed he explained in great detail how at works. He also showed me what to do if I felt something was not working. As we went thru this he noticed that the pump was working as he expected. We discussed what could be the issue and uncovered that my drain pipes outside were frozen. He then proceed to help me correct that. We discussed options for once the ground softens to solve the drain issue. I also have another pump he looked at and determined it was not functioning either. I will be working with them to correct that one in the near future. The price I was quoted on the phone is the price I payed even with the extra work Rob did. He was pleasant, polite and professional. He's main concern was that I was happy and had no issues with the pump he installed.

We had our basement waterproofed with Scaldino Waterproofing. We had French drains, a sump pit, two sump pumps, and a drain line out passed our yard, with a battery backup on the secondary pump installed. Johnny and his crew did a great job. The crew worked hard and steady all day for two days and the job looked great when done. They ran a line underneath my patio, underground, and out towards the woods. They covered all our belongings with plastic, were neat, and cleaned up all the debris. From Debbie in the office, to Isaiah, to Johnny and the crew, everyone was polite helpful and hard working. Johnnie and his crew did everything according to how Isaiah explained it would be done. They also came in thousands of dollars cheaper than another quote I had. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a professional waterproofing job done.

100% Satisfied with Scaldino Basement. From my 1st phone call to inquire about a solution for my wet basement I knew Scaldino was my choice!

Debbi in the office was so helpful and knowledgable, I could tell she answered the phone with a smile. She was personable and able to answer all my questions. I immediately booked and estimate.

Nick came out to assess the problem, he was on time and reassured us that problem would be fixed and timely.

Scaldino Basement installed a french drain and sump pump in my basement. I was so impressed with the professionalism with the crew lead by crew chief Johnny. Containment was hun to protect my contents in the basement, they cleaned up when the job was complete and even would wave to my daughter who watched from the window as they dug a trench.

It has been raining on and off all week and I have DRY basement!!!

Thank you Scaldino!

Replaced sump pump. They had waterproofed my basement a couple of years ago and did a great job with that, so I asked them to do the pump. Very clean, professional, and the price was what they quoted. Would use them again with no hesitation.

Scaldino basement waterproofing came into my home to provide me with a free estimate and followed through with exceptional service. He was prompt, professional and knowledgeable. His team educated me on the process and provided me with a warranty, as he mentioned he does on all of his jobs.

I don't even know where to start.
First, I want to say if you have water come into your basement and have spent days bucketing or manually pumping water out, then you should invest in putting a french drain. I'm a single parent and I'm not rich but I was just tired of this so I researched and researched and finally decided to go with Scaldino's. Why? Well, I got several quotes, some were $8,000 selling me their so called "invention" pipes. Other, bad mouthed other contractors. Nick came in to do the estimate and he gave me a nice quote. I was skeptical about the products since most others use different ones usually circular, but I researched them on youtube.
My quote time passed and well I emailed Nick and apologized for going over the quote time frame to finally say Yes. He actually was kind enough to accept it and we scheduled the work.
The work was achieved in 3 days. The crew came in with Nick explained what was going to happen and they put plastic to protect my things so no debris or dust would get on the. (thank you). The crew were very nice and worked very fast.
Two or three days after the work was done we got 2' of rain and it was a success! NO water came into my basement! The pump is super quiet, I didn't know water was being pumped out that day until I went downstairs to check. I was getting my kitchen remolded that day and my kitchen contractor commended the workmanship Nick's crew did. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT THEIR WORK??? It's outstanding!
I HIGHLY recommend a french drain in your basement and if you decide, I highly recommend Scaldino Basement Solutions!!! They beat the price and the workmanship!

We hired Scaldino Basement Solutions for an annual cleaning of the pumps they installed last year. They showed up on time (early even) on the scheduled day. Happy with the job they completed and continue to be pleased with the performance of the sump pump solution they implemented last summer. They were excellent corresponding with me via email to set up the appointment. We weren't in a rush for the cleaning, so this even involved Scaldino's remembering to put us into the schedule a couple weeks after I initially reached out rather than me having to email again to remind them (again, the delay was simply because we weren't in a hurry. I'm confident that if we'd had a problem, they would have quickly scheduled the work).

It's a little thing, but it really impressed me. We live in a neighborhood with only on street parking. Most contractors will try to park as close as possible, even if it means parking illegally. I happened to be driving behind the Scaldino truck when he arrived at our house. The Scaldino employee actually took advantage of a spot a block away from our house, since he saw it was available. He ended up walking down the block, seeing there was a closer spot and moving his truck. Seems obvious, but it was a really responsible choice that so many contractors in our neighborhood don't make!

They arrived as planned, asked if they could use my driveway, very polite and professional. Nick arrived to make sure everything was going as planned. I left them and went to work. On the second day, same time, they were very careful with everything. Nick is very considerate, very helpful with answering any concerns. All in all, excellent in every way. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you so much.

Where to start about how great this company is? All service was superior from start to finish. I started to get rain in my basement after hurricane Irene. After getting rain in my basement four times, I called several companies from Angie's list and got estimates from all of them. I called and got a calls back right away. Other companies wanted to do more work than was necessary or maybe not enough. Nick came by to give me an estimate within a week. His estimate for what I wanted done was spot on. The job I hired them for was to install a drain system on one side of my house as well as three new custom masonry window wells on the outside of my house. Halfway through the job we noticed there was mold on some of the wood paneling on another side of my house. I asked for a new estimate to extend the drainage to that side of the house and found it extremely reasonable. I decided to go ahead and have that side of the house done and they accommodated with no problem. I have hired them again.

We have had water problems in the basement since we moved in to the house over 15 years ago. Since the basement french drain has been put in a month ago, we have had not water in the basement and It has rained continuously for several days where the yard has been flooded. Overall great job!

After a year, we still have no water leakage in the basement! Great Job.

After 20 years of having a dry basement I was suddenly getting water coming through one of our window wells. They redug the window well and installed a drain which was attached to an interior pump so that any water that collected at all would be pumped outside of the foundation. Also they replaced my window and installed a water shield. I have not had a drop since. Very pleased.

Our basement had five to six inches of water following an intense deluge in the Spring. So we contacted three providers for estimates on waterproofing projects. We chose Scaldino basement, not just because we felt Nick Scaldino provided a fair price. But also because of his straight forward, no nonsense approach. He did not try to oversell or overwhelm with bells and whistles. He just gave us what I felt was an honest assessment of how best to keep out basement dry. And he patiently answered all our questions.
He also was professional, diligent and attentive. He was easy to reach on the phone and returned messages promptly. He worked with our town to get the necessary permits. The project took three days just as Nick explained that it would. On the first day Nick and his team (no subcontractors by the way -- all of the workers were Scaldino employees) showed up on time and quickly got to work. They clearly knew what they were doing and they were all very pleasant. Overall, it was a great experience and I enjoyed working with Nick.
