Who We Are

Established in 1982 by the late Joe Wall, Real Dry Waterproofing has built our reputation and customer base through word-of-mouth and customer referrals. When Joe's son Steve Wall assumed control of the company after the passing of his father, he decided to expand his product line and eventually expand his territory. Real Dry now serves customers throughout New England, including Massachusetts, western Massachusetts, Cape Cod, the South Shore, Boston, northern Connecticut, southern New Hampshire and parts of northern and eastern Rhode Island. We've provided individualized basement waterproofing, foundation repair, drainage, crawl space, sump pump, and backup system solutions for 40 years!

Although the company has advertised a great deal more than in previous years, we still enjoy a strong referral business. And perhaps most important of all, Real Dry does not employ salesmen. Only the qualified installers – and the actual owners – visit potential customers. There are no hard-pressure sales tactics at Real Dry. Co-owners Steve Wall and Curt GuentherThe Real Dry Guys – tell you what your problem is and do not attempt to sell you what you don't need.

With a low overhead and a personal approach, Real Dry is able to offer a reliable product and solution, while simultaneously keeping costs low. Don't be fooled by fancy products and clever sales tactics. Waterproofing hasn't changed much since Joe Wall first began installing systems in the early 80s. It's still hard work and a reliable product that keeps your basement dry.

Joshua Jensen has worked in the construction trade for 18 years. He got his start with Real Dry Waterproofing while still in high school and was originally with our company for 6 years. After Real Dry, Josh worked for various companies in construction while learning a variety of skills, including carpentry, finish work, and remodeling. Beginning in 2014, Josh owned and operated his own energy retrofit & efficiency company with a Dr. Energy Saver franchise in western Mass., where he gained valuable experience from the ownership perspective of running a trade business. For family reasons Josh decided in 2017 to return to his roots and the friendly atmosphere at Real Dry Waterproofing. Josh continues to be a Miami Dolphins fan but we don’t hold that against him!
