Basement waterproofing and crawl space repair in Elyria, OH

Even a tiny amount of water in a basement or crawl space can lead to a huge headache. And sometimes, the evidence of a basement water problems isn't even water – take a look at the common signs below:

  • Wet or damp basement floor or standing water
  • Leaking or damp basement walls or windows
  • Crystalline deposits on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors, condensation, and humidity
  • Sump pump issues

If you've noticed any of these issues in your home, basement waterproofing is a crucial next step. Without a proper defense system, your basement or crawl space will grow mold and develop structural issues, and the rest of your home will suffer. As a member of Basement Systems, Ohio Basement Systems has a whole range of solutions needed to stop basement water in its tracks. We can install an interior drainage system including a sump pump and dehumidifier to completely dry out the space.

For crawl spaces, we offer crawl space encapsulation services to not only remove any moisture already inside the space, but also to prevent the elements outside from getting into the crawl space in the first place. Installing a crawl space vapor barrier, insulation, and other products will ensure that there's an effective barrier in place between your home and Mother Nature.

Foundation trouble is one of the most frightening situations a homeowner can undergo.

Old solutions like foundation replacement are way more of a hassle than what's necessary to ensure the safety of your home, and we are proud to offer the modern technologies that our customers need for foundation repair.

In addition to our residential foundation repair services, we are also more than capable of commercial foundation needs. We can repair existing structures or help commercial customers create new end-bearing deep foundations. Contact us to find out more!

During heavy rainfall we get some water in the basement. We want to get it dry to finish the floor and get some useable space down there. We want to know what our options are and we are contacting some different companies for opinions.
Vicinity of Wilder Ave in Elyria
Selling the home, the buyer has requested a vapor barrier in the crawl space under the living/kitchen. Is this a building code requirement? The house is a 1400 sq ft split level house. The crawl space is next to the downstairs laundry/bathroom. The access to the crawl space is only through the laundry room. The crawl space has a height of approximately 3ft and a dirt floor area between 25'-30' x 15'-20'. Looking for a quote. -Matt

Have several minor stress cracks in the basement poured concrete wall. One crack in particular weeps occasionally and requires repair. I assume from your web site that you can repair minor cracks from inside the wall with low pressure polyurethane injection. I would like to schedule an appointment for an assessment and estimate
