What Our Customers Are Saying...


"We bless the day we glommed on to Neal Golding and his Applied Waterproofing services.  Based in Hayward, the company serves the entire Bay Area.  Last winter, the weather worn bricks on our front balcony began to leak copiously into an alcove adjoining our downstairs bedroom. There's nothing like the sound of gushing water to strike terror in a homeowners heart.  We immediately contacted two local waterproofing contractors for an evaluation and estimate.  Each of them recommended a virtual rebuilding of the front of our house -- demolishing the entire brick facade and replacing it with stucco.   Upshot:  2 estimates --  one for $37,000 and the other for $43,000.  No way could we, on a small retirement income, spring for such a draconian fix. Our peerless contractor, Dave Ford, suggested we contact Neal for a different approach, involving a resurfacing of our balcony and increasingly porous front steps.  Within 5 days, Neal's competent crew had sanded down all of our exterior brick surfaces and applied an impermeable coating.  When we called about a hairline crack that appeared a few weeks after completion, Neal's men were out here in record time to take care of it.  Even with the steady assault of this December's downpours, our interior remains snug and dry.  An unanticipated plus is that the spiffy new black surface enhances the look of our boring 1950's house. The cost for this wonderful solution -- $3,950!  And the icing on the cake is that Neal's workmanship comes with a 5-year warranty.  He's a terrific find."
