I understand some of the negative reviews regarding Thrifty's high pressure sales tactics, my wife and I went through the same thing. I think it may be because their prices are a bit higher. I went through a sleepless night or two thinking that I had been taken advantage of. After talking with Peter and doing some calling around, I decided to stick it out. The crew that came in was fast, clean, and efficient (although there was a bit of a language barrier). However, all of this initial stuff means nothing, when it comes down to it the only thing I care about is the performance of the Thrifty drain system. I'm very grateful I chose Thrifty. Before Thrifty's installation, we flooded 4 times in a little over a year. After Thrifty, we've had 3 significant rain falls and now Hurricane Irene (10 inches of rainfall!!), and I can proudly say my basement is bone dry!!! The neighbors to the right and left of me both got water, but even when the power went out, the backup battery on the sump pump performed admirably. THANK YOU VERY MUCH THRIFTY, you've given me peace of mind, which is well worth the initial investment.

We received the coupons in the mail from Money Mailer and Valpak, as well as we're pretty sure on tv too. We contacted them and they came in and talked us into signing right away.. Then I started feeling very uneasy about it since I could not find any real reviews of them and just the ones they said were 'past employees' and were making it up, blah blah. I also checked with BBB and it STILL shows no rating. Everything seemed shady. They also mentioned that all of their employees were salaried, but the guys who showed up looked like they were picked up from the corner in Paterson. They showed up without the permits, and tried talking me into working without them that the town has the paperwork and knows, yet when I called the town, it would have been a $2000 fine. I told them to come back when they have the permit, then I called and left a message for them to call me back. I spoke to the owner, Peter, and told him I do not feel comfortable and he said since I didnt have a good feeling he would refund all of my money, no fees, but said 'well, we did have to pay for the permits so I'm out that money' and I had already confirmed that the permits were still not picked up and paid for at the Borough Hall. He also said he refunded my credit card, I have yet to see it on my CC bill and this was back in April! My CC company is taking action. Completely shady company, nothing but lies!

I received both a Money Mailer & Valpak coupon in the mail from Thrifty. Both pieces stated they have an "A" rating with the BBB. I spoke with the BBB & the fact of the matter is that they have no rating with the BBB & their accreditation was revoked. This is due to the ongoing investigation from the BBB that the owner of Thrifty is the same owner of Aqua Dri Waterproofing who has 46 complaints with the BBB. I don't understand how the BBB is letting them get away with this!! BEWARE!! If you are skeptical about my post speak to the BBB yourself before you contract with this company.

My basement was a wreck and leaked for years..Thrifty waterproofing came in and finished in two days. We had two other companies look at our basement and they pretty much said the same things. We are very happy with thrifty and would recommend them to anyone. My husband is happy and THAT MAKES ME HAPPY!!!!!!! thanks THRIFTY!

i had several companies out to look at my basement and within 5 minutes all 3 of the companies started to bash all the other guys.I found this revolting. they all were spreading rumors about each other to make themselves look good. i never have been subjected to something liken this before. I had Thifty come out they did the job , i gave it to them because of one reason, they didnt bash anybody and were only concerned about my problem. Soo refreshing its been three months and i have had no issues. Please dont fall for the fear injecting tactics of these high pressure sales people. i am satisfied with thrifty s service and proffessionalism
