    Customer Testimonial

              A friend told me about Woods so I went with them to do the work in our basement. They guys did a very good job and completed the work in 2 days. When I called Woods after they did their work they came right out and answered my questions and took care of my concern. I just wanted to make sure that I understood what they did and about the warranty so I appreciated them coming out to explain that instead of over the phone.

              I am delighted to report that the system your crew installed worked as designed. The rain storm we had a few weeks ago was the first time we needed the protection Woods installed. Water was lapping up against the garage door and seeped under the door. The trench drain caught the water and the pump kept up with the inflow. We are very satisfied with the system.
