This home was experiencing several problem areas and issues. Cracking and inward bowing of the walls were two of the major concerns. Pictured is the area with waterproofing materials placed by the other company which we peeled back to reveal the issues at hand. In the after photo you can see where we installed our PowerBraces to keep the wall from bowing inward any further.

Basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation professionals in Lakewood, OH

When your basement or foundation is suffering from any kind of damage, it's crucial to call in a professional. Only a certified basement waterproofing or foundation repair contractor can discover the root causes of your home's issues and ensure a thorough, appropriate solution. In business since 1999, Ohio Basement Systems is your local expert for your home's needs in Lakewood, OH. Widely recognized for our talent and customer care, we're sure to get your home back on track in no time at all.

Wet or even damp basements lead to mold and an uncomfortable living environment. Family members who are sensitive to allergies will suffer, and you won't be able to make the most of the space. If your basement has any of the following symptoms of water problems, Ohio Basement Systems is the company to call.

  • Sagging floors and floor cracks
  • Wall cracks
  • Bowing walls
  • Sticking doors and windows
  • Tilting chimneys

In order to rid your basement of standing water or moisture, we have a variety of Basement Systems products at our disposal. Our perimeter drains will capture water coming in from the walls or floors and bring it to a high-volume sump pump for removal. We also offer dehumidifiers, water heater flood protection, and a wide variety of other products to keep your basement safe and dry.

Crawl spaces require special products because they are naturally left open to the elements. Letting a crawl space encapsulation specialist at Ohio Basement Systems outfit the space with a vapor barrier system, though, should do the trick. By separating the crawl space from the air outside, you can prevent moisture - and pests - from disrupting your home.

Discharge line

The IceGuard, installed here in Lakewood, prevents wintertime freeze-up of discharge lines.

Finish your dry basement with Total Basement Finishing

While waterproofing a basement will help make it healthy, you still can't take full advantage of what the space can offer without finishing it. A finished basement can become any room you desire. Whether you're in need of a den, an office, a bar, or even a laundry room, Ohio Basement Systems can help make your dream room come to reality. And as an added benefit, you'll be increasing property value that will act as a return on your investment when you go to sell.

We use a variety of Total Basement Finishing products to transform your basement, including:

  • Basement flooring
  • Basement wall panels
  • Basement ceiling tiles
  • Staircases and doors
  • Windows
  • And more!

These products come in different styles and colors to make sure you can customize your basement space. They are also made from completely inorganic materials, so they won't get destroyed if they come into contact with moisture. For example, our wood-like basement flooring looks just as good as real hardwood floors, but it won't warp, swell, or rot. If you're interested in finishing your basement, or if you need help with design ideas, schedule a free estimate with Ohio Basement Systems today!

Lakewood, OH foundation repair

The stability of your foundation is essentially dependent on the soils around your home. Weak soils lead to foundation shifting, settlement, or heave because these soils expand and contract. Symptoms may include cracks in walls and floors, windows and doors that stick, bowing walls, and tilting chimneys. To combat these and other foundation problems, a foundation repair professional like Ohio Basement Systems has an arsenal of tools to utilize.

If foundation settlement is your problem, we can use a variety of foundation piers to anchor the weight to solid ground. We also offer wall anchors and braces for bowing or collapsing walls. And if crawl space joists are sagging, we can install support jacks to reinforce and straighten the space. Along with our residential foundation repair services, we can also dig and repair commercial foundations with skill and expertise.

For all of your basement, crawl space, and foundation repair needs, you've come to the right place. Schedule a free estimate with Ohio Basement Systems today! We proudly serve customers in Lakewood, OH and areas nearby, and we know we're well-equipped to get your home back to normal.
