The knowledge Jake has with flood protection is second to none. The system he’s built is the Cadillac of flood protection systems and a very great price for what you’re getting! My companies done quite a few flood renovations since the massive floods last year and every one has gotten his system installed. The peace of mind you get knowing your basement is safe is worth its weight in gold! 10/10 cannot recommend more!!

There is no better feeling than knowing your home is protected! We have lived rurally for over 25 years. We've had our share of flooded basements, ruined equipment and ruined personal belongings. When I learned about the system the Mechanical Flood Protection team was installing, I knew we needed it! The piece of mind knowing that we now have a back system as well as a monitoring system that alerts us to any issues is amazing!

We’ve been working with Jake on a number of projects the last year and he has been my best plumber to date. Piece of mind is priceless in this industry and having reliable sub contractors with a wide breadth of knowledge is a wonderful thing. Couldn’t recommend somebody anymore!

After my basement flooded I discovered the Mechanical Flood Protection system and decided to explore further. Jake was very professional and answered all my questions so that I could understand things. The battery backup for the system in case of power outage was a great contributing factor in my decision to get the system. The installation was quick and clean, and Jake showed me how to add the app to my phone explaining how to monitor the system 24/7. The comfort I have knowing this system will help protect my home from future flooding (without or without power) is amazing, just like Jake and his team. I highly recommend this system to protect a home, especially with the way the climate is changing.
