  • "I felt really good about giving my business to The Basement Doctor." Read Full Testimonial

    Dale B. of Florence, KY

    Customer Testimonial

              Walt Fanthorp is the reason we ended up choosing to do business with The Basement Doctor. He conducted the third estimate we had done. While other salespeople/technicians were cordial and professional Mr. Fanthorp went above and beyond. He did not complain about the idiosyncrasies of our basement like other companies' reps did; rather he stated his opinion of the required solution in a straightforward manner. He also showed me a video of the water guard technology as well as how houses are built at the foundation and basement level-no one else ever came close to helping me understand how water was likely getting into the basement. He was also friendly and down-to-earth and easy to talk to, and, unlike the sales reps from other companies we spoke with, he actually smiled a lot and appeared to really enjoy his work and believe in his company. He did a great job building a relationship with me in a short amount of time, and as a result, I felt really good about giving my business to Basement Doctor. I originally found out about the company through an internet search. But, as I mentioned above, I chose this company largely due to the professionalism and friendliness of Mr. Fanthorp as well as his proposed solution to our basement water issue. In addition, I was impressed with the water guard technology and felt that would suit our needs as water was seeping into the basement at times through one particular wall, and the price was lower than that quoted by other companies on the order of two grand or so. For all of these reasons and above all the courtesy and professionalism of Mr. Fanthorp, we decided to choose the basement doctor.

  • WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing system used to resolve water problems in Florence, KY
    WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing system used to resolve water problems in Florence, KY

    A Florence, Kentucky homeowner was having problems with water seeping in at the floor in a finished basement.   He met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, at The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky.  Walt recommended that we install WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, along with A SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System and an UltraSump Battery Back-up Sump System.

    WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed along the foundation walls to intercept water that is seeping into the basement.  The water will then be drained into a sump pump system, such as the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, to be pumped out of the basement.  

    The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System has a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump.  It also comes with a WaterWatch Alarm, SuperLiner and Airtight Lid.  The WaterWatch Alarm will sound an alarm during a pump or power to alert the homeowner.  The SuperLiner has 96 holes in it to allow water to flow in from under the floor and is a rugged, heavy-duty liner that will not crack or cave in.  The Airtight Lid keeps water from evaporating back into the basement, keeps out odors and quiets the pump.  The UltraSump is a battery back up pump that will automatically come on if there is a pump or power failure.  It runs on battery power and comes with its own battery and charging station. 

    With these systems now installed, the WaterGuard is intercepting the water that is seeping into the basement, and the homeowner can refinish the basement without worries of water intrusion.
