(After a record-breaking rainfall in July 2012 and days before we were leaving on vacation, we returned home and) found that our basement was flooded…The Abarent team had done what I thought was impossible. They installed the weeping tile in two days over the long weekend and on a very tight deadline. Their crew was very professional and know what they were doing… Two days before our vacation, the project was complete and we were able to leave and enjoy our family vacation without worrying about flooding.Read more
