Real People, Real Results

I’m very satisfied with this company and especially Caleb and his crew. They arrived at the designated time, worked until end of day. They tidied the area before they left for the night. They arrived on time the next day to complete the project. I was well informed of the process during installation and the operations of the system. Great company!

Albert Lebouef February 29, 2024

This is a great company! Caleb and his crew were very professional, punctual , they cleaned up as they worked and the finished product came out amazing. They were always very detailed in explaining the whole process. I highly recommend Ameri-Dry Systems if you need to fix those leaks in your basement and would certainly hire them again if needed.

Scottie Strong February 27, 2024

These guys were fantastic and extremely polite throughout the entire process. They explained things beautifully as well. Highly recommend!

Marshanna Eason February 26, 2024

I cannot recommend Ameri-Dry enough! From start to finish, their service was exceptional. They have a very punctual team and amazing customer service. Their experience in waterproofing and foundation repair really shows through. If you're looking for a reliable waterproofing company, look no further than Ameri-Dry! You won't be disappointed.

Arien Belcher February 15, 2024

I would like to apologize for the misrepresentation in this review as I was a current employee at the time of this review which was all falsely constructed to gain more localized reviews for this area. “Couldn’t be any happier with the services they provided. My basement was flooding and they came out and I instantly felt confident in their product and customer service. The guys came out and made it as quick and painless as possible.”

Kayla Lewis December 20, 2023

Ameri-Dry is the best company! The best customer service, assessment of damage, friendliness, knowledge of what to do. The three men that came out to work on the basement were so nice and knew what they were doing and did not mind answering any questions you may have. They were very neat and clean and with concrete dust that is saying something. We were down to do repairs after Christmas and we got a call to see if we wanted an earlier date. Amazing!!! If you want it done right from start to finish you should use this company. I cannot thank these guys enough. My husband and I are so thankful. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The Siscos

Jennifer Sisco December 19, 2023

Working with Ameri-Dry was great! From start to finish they made me feel like they really cared about the water issues and the cracks in my foundation. I will definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

T.J. Pierce December 18, 2023

We were happy to find a local company to encapsulate our crawl spaces in our basement. Ameri-Dry was very professional, great communication with us, and all staff were top notch. Caleb and his team, Zach and Ben, were hard workers, doing the installation so neatly and accurately. They worked great together as an experienced efficient team, always leaving the area clean and safe each day. Stephen calculated the estimate for us, and explained the details. We also had a great rapport with Laura, and later Kayla on the phones from their offices. A company is only as good as its employees and this was so true of Ameri-Dry. They are a small local company with great key people working for them. Thank you all for taking such great care of us!

Claude Daoust November 29, 2023

Professional, on time and great quality work.. Caleb and the whole crew was wonderful

Susan Bolton October 25, 2023

Great professionalism and attention to details. Highly recommend them.

Ross Peckinpah October 22, 2023

I had three companies at my home to look at waterproofing my basement. All three companies had A+ reviews. Ameri-Dry worked me in to do the work sooner than I expected. They worked hard from start to finish and I am very pleased with their work!

Michael Ottinger October 6, 2023

Caleb and the guys were quick, knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone here has been really kind and helpful. I have nothing to complain about. Thank you for your hard work!

The workers were extremely professional and stayed busy on the job from the start of the day to the end of the day. Very pleased with their work ethic.

Caleb Gilbert April 26, 2023

The concrete covering the drain system could be a little smoother but it’s not a huge issue to me personally because it will eventually be covered. It has not rained hard enough since then installation to test how well it is working but I see now reason why it shouldn’t. They crew that installed my system were hard workers and very professional. They were in and out in 2 days for a 68ft section of wall and a 12 foot section of grate at my garage door.

Ashtyn Mills April 2, 2023

Great experience, everyone was professional, on time, and thorough. Would recommend.

lilbluewarchief March 29, 2023

Thank you for the excellent job. Water be gone!

Kellie Ward March 6, 2023

Every person I have been in contact with from start to finish has been very professional. On the job the guys were on time, very polite, respectful and professional.

Amazing company , came out the next day for an estimate . We agreed to have them do the job . Gilbert and his crew came out exactly in the scheduled day. Finished up the job a day ahead of schedule. Cleaned up everyday at the end of the day. Very professional, courteous and kept us informed as the job progresses. Highly recommend. If you need your crawl space encapsulated and drainage put in this is the company for you. Thank you guys. Great job 200% satisfied !!👍🏻

scott grant February 2, 2023

These guys were great. They were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and hard working. They worked like dogs and barely even stopped to eat. I can't say enough good things about them, would gladly hire them again.

Chris Pickens-Mitchell January 25, 2023

We had a great experience with Ameri-Dry from start to finish. Caleb and his crew were very friendly, they communicated every day with us, worked hard, and got the job finished in a timely manner. They were able to get us on the schedule within a week of calling them. We would highly recommend them and will call them for any future needs. Thank you!

Sean Vollenweider December 29, 2022

I had Ameri-Dry install drainage in my basement. They showed up day 1, walked me through the process, let me know what to expect in terms of noise and timeline, and spent time answering my questions to make sure I was comfortable with the job. Aside from the jackhammering the first day, I almost didn't know they were here as I worked from home. Day 2 they wrapped up right when they said they would, gave me the rundown on how the new system works, how long the concrete will take to cure, and what to expect during that time. They also let me know that my foundation is in good shape, explained how the foundation is built, and even spent time to talk to me about my chimney (unrelated to the job at hand) and talk to me about how the house is built. I learned a lot about my house (and of course about basement drainage) by chatting with this crew. They were super polite, did diligent work, left the workspace cleaner than when they arrived, and it looks great! I'm tickled to have had them do this work, and would recommend them to anyone, no reservations. These folks are solid.

Bryan Owen November 29, 2022

The crew that did the work was amazing! Everyone was very nice and respectful, worked hard, and was patient with us as we asked question after question.

Deborah Puckett November 17, 2022

The Team was professional, courteous and friendly. The work was completed quickly, on time and on budget. I would highly recommend this Team for any work that you need done.

Mark Nichols November 10, 2022

The crew did an amazing job and are very hard workers!

RANDALL CAMPBELL November 3, 2022

We were very impressed with the workmanship, the quality of materials used, the responsiveness to our initial inquiry, and the professionalism of Barry and his crew. The work site was cleaned up at the end of the day; they showed up when they said that they would show up; and they made sure that we were happy. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing foundation repair.

Tim Van Horn October 26, 2022

They did an amazing job of encapsulated our crawlspace

Stephen Miller October 21, 2022

In today’s world it’s hard to find good quality hard working people but these guys were all the above !!! Showed up on time worked 2 full days non stop and completed the job on time and within budget !! It started with the owner being here at the start and making sure the foreman and crew had the job handled and came by to check on work!! The crew are young men in their 20’s but have great work Ethics and are very respectful “Yes Ma’am and Yes Sir” I highly recommend this business

Bud Smith September 27, 2022

I couldn’t be happier with the excellent service I have received. From the initial contact with the office, then with The Estimate process with Barry; and finally the hard working crew that arrived on time each day, and put in above quality work. These young men are respectful, and dedicated. I would highly recommend this company. I’m pleased with the level of work, the timing of the whole process, the cleanup, and the results. Erin

Jane Sig September 27, 2022

We called and they responded quickly. They are Tri Cities local (in Greeneville). The estimate was professional and informative. Our team came at the exact time promised and the repair was taken care of in the time we were told. The work crew leader, Caleb Gilbert, was also informative and explained everything. He checked everything before they left and made sure clean up was completed. The crew was top notch. I recommend them if you need basement drying services. My only suggestion would be for them to give a military discount.

Teresa Ell August 30, 2022

The team at Ameridry was professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. They waterproofed our basement and garage areas. They were able to address our concerns, ease our nerves, and were very flexible with changes we desired.

Logan Y August 26, 2022

Excellent crew! Professional and cleaned up well

Jeremy Arnall August 12, 2022

Caleb and Barry were so professional and so courteous, they kept me in the loop the whole time of what was going on and how long it would take. I have recommended them already to all my friends and family and I would recommend them to everyone! Thank you guys for helping me out, now I can start the build of my bedrooms in the basement.

Lillie Hayter August 4, 2022

We got a quote from several companies for waterproofing our basement. Barry was by far the most knowledgeable, professional and honest. Two of the other companies were up selling and pushing additional services that we didn’t really need. Even though those additional services would have meant more money for his company, when we asked, Barry explained what we really needed and why. His crew was very professional and courteous while working as well. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again!

Sylvia J July 30, 2022
Ben Smith July 11, 2022
Joe Kalke July 2, 2022

When we had what seemed like an absolute mess of an issue with our recently purchased home, we reached out to several companies for inspections, but none were equipped to perform the job. Thankfully, we found Ameri-Dry. Barry came out to look at the problem, inspected it thoroughly, and offered us a solution. It is very clear that he and his team are highly knowledgeable and experienced. We felt very confident in hiring them from the beginning. Throughout the duration of the work, they arrived on time, were very considerate and polite, and worked hard. They did a beautiful job and guaranteed we would have no further issues. I will 100% use them again in the future.

Lauren Detling June 8, 2022

Barry, Caleb, and the rest of the crew are polite, professional, and informative. Highly recommend and will utilize their services again.

caleb caleb May 18, 2022

Barry, Caleb and the crew were OUTSTANDING! Work was high quality, crew was on time and very professional, and price was better than other competitors who gave us quotes. You can’t hire a better crew to waterproof your basement!

George Tvardy April 28, 2022

Very pleased with the quality of work we received!

Doug Simpson April 22, 2022

Barry and his crew did a outstanding job. They were very detailed oriented. He explained what they were going to do to my wife and myself and showed us that we made the right choice in hiring them for the job. Would highly recommend them. Thanks again Barry and to his crew also.

Al Merriam April 21, 2022

I just wanted to let people know how happy I am that I had a basement drain system installed after last years rainy Spring. With all the rain we have had in the past couple days my basement is as dry as a bone. Thank you so much Ameri-Dry and Barry Antonelli for doing such a great job. If anybody needs this done I would highly recommend doing it and I highly recommend using Ameri-dry.

Michael Mitchell February 6, 2020

We needed to have a sump pump put in because of flooding in our basement. The man that showed up ( I can't remember his name to save my life) to do our estimate was very professional and courteous and knew exactly what our problem was. He explained everything in detail and made it extremely easy for us to understand. The guys had the job done in about a day and a half and had everything cleaned up. We will definitely use them again if we need them and highly recommend them.
