Basement Waterproofing, Finishing & Crawl Space Repair

Water in the basement or crawl space results in mold and rot damage. We protect your home by properly waterproofing your basement or encapsulating the crawl space. We even offer waterproof, basement finishing.

Basement Waterproofing System in Mentor

We can fix:

  • Wet Basements
  • Damp or Moldy Crawl Spaces
  • Leaking Wall Cracks
  • High Humidity in the Space
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures
  • Unfinished basement space

Wet Basement Waterproofing

Our patented waterproofing system has been successfully used in hundreds of thousands of homes across the United States, including Mentor. We first install an interior drainage channel along the inner perimeter of your basement. Any water that enters the space is collected in the channel and drained to a hidden sump pump in the basement floor. The water is pumped out and away from your home. A basement dehumidifier is added to keep the relative humidity low enough to prevent mold growth. The complete basement waterproofing system has a transferable, life-time, dry-basement warranty.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl Spaces suffer from the same problems as basements do. So we waterproof the space by encapsulating the crawl space with a thick, vinyl vapor barrier. The crawl space vents and entryway are sealed and a sump pump is placed in the floor. A specially designed basement dehumidifier is added to complete the system. Your system is protected from water, mold and rot. 

Waterproof Basement Finishing

Once your basement is waterproofed, we can finish the space. Unlike other contractors, we only use completely inorganic materials in your finished basement. Even with a waterproofed basement a burst pipe can cause water damage quickly in your finished basement. However, our finished basements are completely waterproof and impervious to water damage and mold damage. With a variety of finishing materials to choose from and a 50-year mold-and-moisture warranty, we are Mentor's trusted basement remodeling contractors. 


Foundation Repair & Concrete Repair

We fix foundation problems professionally and efficiently, preventing permanent foundation damage. We have helped successfully helped hundreds of homes and businesses throughout Ohio, including in Mentor. We provide both residential and commercial foundation repair. 

Foundation Pier System in Mentor

We can fix:

  • foundation wall cracks
  • Separating floors
  • Soil issues
  • bowing walls
  • Sunken concrete slabs

Professional Foundation Repair

Using slab and foundation piers, we can lift sunken and settling foundations back to their original position. We also correct bowing basement walls using wall braces or wall anchors. If you have a sagging floor over a crawl space we fix the floor using crawl space support jacks. All of our foundation repair products have 25 year warranties. 

Concrete Repair

Using PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam, we lift sunken concrete slabs back to their original position. It doesn't matter if the sunken slab is in your sidewalk, driveway, pool deck or patio. We can fix it all. PolyLEVEL is a great improvement over traditional mudjacking methods. Rather than injecting a heavy mudslurry beneath the slab we inject a light polyurethane foam. The foam expands to fill any empty space, puts less stress on the underlying soil, and cures in a matter of hours rather than days. We are Mentor's best concrete leveling contractor. 

After stabilizing your concrete, guard against oil, water, gasoline, other debris and liquids with a powerful and durable concrete sealant, SealantPro. SealantPro bonds with concrete on a molecular level to extend your slab's life by 3 to 5 times overall. SealantPro works on steps, driveways, walkways, garage floors, pool decks and other concrete structures.

Vicinity of Hoose Rd. in Mentor
There is no standing water or flooding in the basement. However, while getting some moldy/crumbled drywall patched, we noticed the concrete behind the drywall was very damp. Previous homeowners did have water issues and installed drain tiles and a sump pump. However, the concrete walls are still damp and we have a lot of mold behind our baseboards and slightly damp drywall behind the baseboards.
