Your Home faces Water Damage

1. Nova Scotia receives a good amount of rain which can quickly become an issue with flash floods. 

2. When flooding hits your area, your basement is most likely to be the prime target for water damage.

3. If you allow it to be wet, moldy, humid, smelly, and unhealthy, you're abandoning an entire floor of space in your home. Additionally, the basement air - filled with odors, dust mite feces, humidity, and mold spores - will rise into the rest of the house, ruining the healthy environment of the home.

              This week was the first test of the drainage system with 100mm of rain in less than 5 days. I was in the basement crafting my Christmas homebrews when I caught what I thought was some rain splashing against the windows. It turns out it was the newly installed pump coming to life! The system is extremely quiet to the point where I had to stand over the pump to hear it turn on.I believe I would be cleaning up a mess right now if it wasn't for the work you and your crew did. Thanks!

              I was out of the country when the actual work was done, but my wife (who hates having to deal with these sorts of things and wishes I was home more often to do it instead) tells me that everything went very smoothly from first visit to quick quotation right thru the work and packing up. My thanks go out to your crew for helping make this as easy for her as possible. So far as the results go, we'll see what the upcoming rainy season brings.

    Customer Testimonial

              Mitchell just left here after completing the job in our basement. I just wanted to let you know that so far I'm very impressed with the quality of work that your company puts in the market. I'll get back to you in the spring to let you know how much of a difference that we found regarding the insulation of our basement in terms of the coldness of our floors, but so far it even smells better!!! Also, I just want to say I'm very impressed with friendliness,knowledge and overall professionalism of your employees. They cleaned up their work area and took the time to seal any voids with the spray foam that they felt may cause heat loss. It's that kind of extra care that is missing in most business today that the market wants, keep up the great work!! I'll get back to you in the spring and let you know if we had any issues over the winter. Again THANK YOU!!!

    Customer Testimonial

              Hey guys, Just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my Ridgeback Sump Pump install. As you know Fredericton recently got a good deluge - I think we had in the range of 125-130 mm in 24 hours. So among the worst storms we've had in terms of rainfall here in the last few years. A few years back we had a similar rainfall event and my 1/4 hp sump pump at the time could not keep up with the incoming water... It was running continuous duty and I had to help with a shop vac to keep our sump from overflowing for about an hour - after that the water inflow relaxed a bit but our sump pump was tripping on at least every minute for the next day and then every few minutes for a couple of days. It was nerve racking knowing that a brief power failure or a failure of that pump could have done $10,000 worth of damage in minutes. With this recent event I was out of town in Montreal. I heard it was coming and I there was really nothing I could do but put my faith in my new dual sump pumps from Ridgeback. Several days later I got home and my basement was dry as a bone. Although clearly, from some new erosion gullies in our garden, we'd had a lot of rain and it had come down hard. My only regret is that I wasn't home to see the sump pumps in action! Peace of mind is priceless, so the Ridgeback system has certainly paid for itself. So thanks again - Happy Homeowner here!

    What a very good company to work with. Everything explained by our basement specialist Jared, how the system works what is involved in the installation. Then the crew comes to the house and does exactly what Jared said that they would do. Very aware of keeping the house clean even though they had many trips from the basement to their truck and back. The whole system is working well so far and I am anticipating only good things going forward. A big THANK-You to Jared, Sidney, Akhiem, Nathan and of course the administrator Amanda.

    Still getting water in one of the areas worked on, which is disappointing. Contacted salesperson with that info and he (Steve) assured me they'd look after it. Hopeful that this can happen soon.Overall, we have been most pleased with your willingness to address our needs in a speedy manner, as waiting would have led to further water damage. I cannot stress enough how important this willingness was in our decision to go with Ridgeback. Based on this positive experience, we are hopeful your folks can address the leak referred to above.

    Very satisfied with system. Our room in the basement would have flooded ten times by now. We can hear the sump pump come on sometimes and we both look at each other and say "Thank God we found Ridgeback".

    I was told I wouldn't hear the pump. I always hear the pump and the swish of water when it expels outside. I can't be the only one who finds this annoying. I am happy with the job, but I'm not 'over the moon' happy yet...
