Why Choose Us

About the Owners

Gayle and Mike Rusk, Owners

As founder and President, Mike literally built Ohio Basement Systems from the ground up, starting with the basement.

Ohio Basement Systems represents the very best in product innovation, quality, and value for every level of the home. Customer service and sales integrity are core factors in the company's culture and are major considerations when selecting partnering businesses and new products or vendors.

With over 20 years experience, Mike and his wife Gayle know from experience that there is a right way and a wrong way to making these improvements. They want to help others make the right decisions and avoid costly mistakes.

Every member of our over 100 person team shares this vision, and strives to deliver exceptional service, every step of the way.

Why we are different:

Honest Approach

Our inspectors aren't salesmen. These highly trained individuals are focused on helping customers and will never recommend something you don't need.
