About Us

Oriole is a local, family owned business that was established in 1953. We are proud to be Maryland’s oldest waterproofing company servicing Harford County, Baltimore County, Cecil County, Howard County, Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, and Carroll County.

Oriole Basement Waterproofing, Inc. has proudly served the Harford, Baltimore, Cecil, and Howard counties, especially the Bel Air, Dundalk, and Lutherville-Timonium areas since 1953. The age of the neighborhoods in the Lutherville-Timonium area varies significantly and requires custom drainage and waterproofing solutions. Considered a historic district, some of the homes built in Lutherville date back to as early as 1852. Each home is structurally unique, requiring a different waterproofing approach for homes that experience basement leaking and water intrusion. The foundations in the Lutherville-Timonium vary greatly from stone, brick, cinder block, and poured concrete all depending on the age of the home and the builder. Oriole Basement Waterproofing, Inc. has vast structural experience in all building scenarios in the Lutherville-Timonium area, offering custom solutions for any type of foundation.

Some of Oriole Basement Waterproofing, Inc.’s most prominent areas of service include the communities of Lutherville-Timonium, Mays Chapel, Towson, Hunt Valley, Sparks, Glen Arm, Hydes, Jacksonville, Monkton, Phoenix, Parkton, Baldwin, and all surrounding municipalities in Baltimore County. Depending on the severity of the problem and location of the water intrusion, water problems can typically be resolved by either an exterior or interior solution, or a combination of both. The Lutherville-Timonium area homes each have a unique set of problems which require different approaches to repair the given problem at hand. Some basement water problems can simply be resolved by grading the slope of the landscape and extending the downspouts to redirect the water away from the foundation.

Oriole Basement Waterproofing, Inc. provides the most effective solutions and the most competitive rates in the industry. Whether your basement is finished or unfinished, we will be able to determine the cause of the problem and the most reasonable solution to prevent any further water damage to your property.

The City Paper Best of Baltimore Award Winner

Getting someone to work on your house for a reasonable price–and without dragging the project out twice as long as planned–is pretty much a miracle. And after researching and interviewing waterproofers, the odds looked worse. We got estimates all over the map, conflicting information about the only way to do it, people we almost had to physically eject from our house because they wouldn’t leave unless we signed a contract for some crazy system. It was awful. And then we talked to Oriole Basement Waterproofers. The pitch from this local, family-owned and -operated firm was clear, concise, and within our budget. They offered a lifetime warranty–not our lifetime, mind you–a completely transferable warranty for the lifetime of our more than 100-year-old house. And this isn’t some fly-by-night operation that will shut down and leave your warranty useless. Oriole has been around so long it predates the major-league baseball team whose name it shares; the company was named after the state bird. Oriole did the work quickly and with consideration for our home. And best of all, our once perpetually flooded basement has been bone dry ever since.
