Basement Waterproofing - Basement Waterproofing the Right Way | Ohio Basement Systems

For over 20 years, Gayle and Mike Rusk, owners of Ohio Basement Systems, have been helping thousands of homeowners in Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown, Sandusky and areas in Northern Ohio solve their wet, moldy or flooding basement problems!


In this segment of Michael Cardamone’s “It’s About You”, Mike and Gayle take the time to explain how basements get wet and the available options to fix that problem.


Mike explains that the soil around the foundation tends to soak in water. As the water pools around the basement walls, hydrostatic pressure increases and water infiltrates the basement through any viable cracks and joints. As a way to prevent this from happening builders usually install drain tiles outside, by the footing. The problem is that many times dirt and debris end up clogging the drain tile and the system collapses.


Ohio Basement Systems has exclusive access to over 24 patented products to custom design drainage solutions for your basement. Their systems are installed inside the basement, so there is no expensive and disruptive exterior excavation. They also offer the most powerful sump pump systems in the industry, like the UltraSump and the TripleSafe, which include a battery-operated backup pump to keep your basement dry even in the event of a power outage.

Basement wall systems like the BrightWall, are a great way to clean and brighten up your basement walls. Tied to the drainage system, they make your basement cleaner and drier.
