In House Outhouse

Homeowners Sam and Eman hired a contractor to build a new bathroom and convert their damp and dark basement into a living space for their growing family and friends.

They could tell that something was wrong with the way the contractor ran waste pipes from their new bathroom directly into a sump pump. When John DeSilvia arrives to investigate, he discovers dire consequences to the contractor's shoddy workmanship.

Pardon My French Drain

All Ian and Ceason wanted was to waterproof their basement so that they could finally utilize the space as a suite for visiting family members and friends. A number of contractors came and went, but not without making things worse.

Now they are left with a damp, dreary and destroyed basement that they avoid entering at all costs. John DeSilvia arrives on the scene and delivers a beautiful, watertight basement that Ian and Ceason will want to use just as much as their guests.
