Company History

On February 1, 1985, EverDry Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Cincinnati opened its doors as the first EverDry franchise in the nation. Today, this location is still growing strong under the leadership of owner Jim Gielty, who had worked as a Cleveland Ohio firefighter for 20 years prior to opening this franchise.

Over the years, the Cincinnati location has experienced tremendous growth, due to the quality of job installations and personnel. Starting out with 12 employees, we have grown to more than 100 employees, and are still growing.

Since 1994, EverDry Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Cincinnati has been awarded “Franchise of the Year” on 12 different occasions and has been one of the top producers in the nation in that time frame. In 2005, Charles Begley was promoted to General Manager. He previously was Production Manager for Cincinnati, dating back to 1985.

With the quality of personnel acquired at EverDry Waterproofing of Cincinnati we expect nothing but continued success.


The EverDry team was very professional from the initial sale to the installation. The work team showed up on time, Chris answered all my questions, the work environment was cleaned every day and we couldn’t have been more pleased. The team reflects well on the management of the company.

The EverDry crew that did our job was a courteous crew. Each day they came, they were organized and everyone worked the entire time. They arrived on time each morning. all the men worked together well, no personality conflicts to give a bad impression.

At the end of each day they cleaned up before they left. (As much as they could for a messy job) They were helpful and pleasant about having to carry some items we had not cleared from the basement when they first arrived. The crew foreman answered a lot of questions for me on the hows and whys of the job. He was nice to me and good with the crew. I am confident about the job they did, and I like having the lifetime warranty.

We have had water issues in our basement for years. When your salesman explained the waterproofing process, we were confident this would solve our problem.

Ted and his crew showed up on time each day. They were ready to go to work. Each person knew what had to be done and did it. The crew was courteous and cleaned up each day. Ted kept us informed to what had been done at the end of the day and let us know when the job was expected to be done.

We are very satisfied with the work that was done and would recommend Everdry to others.

Mike and Susan C.

Upon arrival the guys were prompt, polite, and explained everything in detail. They covered all our belonging and floors with plastic. They answered all questions so we could fully understand exactly what they were doing. We were shown the progress along the way. They all stayed on task. At the end of the day they cleaned up. They let me know if they had to do something different and the reasons behind it. If something got broken it was fixed and brought to our attention. It has been a pleasant experience with the Everdry crew, from start to finish. I would recommend you to anyone.

Thank you, Paule M.
