Our Services for You

installing basement waterproofing solutions

Basement Waterproofing

Basements are subject to various damage, including wall and floor leaks, flooding, mold, efflorescence, and musty odors. These are unhealthy and unsightly nuisances, but Ohio Basement Systems has the best solutions to combat these issues.

Our high-quality interior drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, wall vapor barriers, and more will keep your basement dry for good. Working together, these products intercept leaking water, remove it from your home, and control moisture levels.

Crew picking up helical pier

Foundation Repair

Your home depends on its foundation for stability, but it can suffer damage if the foundation has also sustained damage.

Unstable underlying soil leads to foundation sinking and settling, which will be visible through wall cracks, drywall nail pops, bowing basement walls, uneven floors, sticking windows and doors, and other issues.

To combat these issues, Ohio Basement Systems installs a variety of repairs, including wall anchors, wall braces, carbon fiber wall reinforcement, crawl space supports, helical piers, and push piers. These permanent solutions will put your home back on solid ground and ensure its safety and longevity. 

installing crew space encapsulation solutions

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation

While not as common as basements, some homes in Akron have a crawl space beneath them. This area is also prone to problems such as infestations, mold growth, wood rot, sagging floors, flooding, unpleasant smells, and high energy bills.

To put a stop to these nuisances and their causes, Ohio Basement Systems seals and conditions the crawl space. We install reliable crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions such as interior drainage, sump pumps, thermal insulation, vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and support posts. 

installing polyurethane injections for concrete lifting

Concrete Lifting

Concrete is strong, but it can fail over time and with continued exposure to the elements. The underlying soil is prone to washout and erosion, which leaves concrete without the proper support. Concrete slabs will then crack, sink, become uneven, pit, flake, and stain.

There are many concrete repair options, but our innovative concrete lifting method stands above the rest. Our polyurethane injections are lightweight, durable, long-lasting, quick curing, and versatile. They can be used on sidewalks, driveways, garage floors, interior slab floors, pool decks, and outdoor steps.

FAQs

Even though a basement dehumidifier can be extremely effective when handling the dampness left behind after your basement floods, it shouldn’t be the only way you try to fix flooding in your basement.

A basement dehumidifier doesn’t actively address the physical presence of water in your basement. That’s what an interior drainage system and sump pump are for. The drains collect perimeter leaks and direct the water to a sump pump. The sump pump then pumps the water out of your basement and away from your home.

You can then address water vapor or humidity with a wall vapor barrier and a dehumidifier.

You might feel like you don’t really “need” crawl space encapsulation, especially since your crawl space is not visited very often.

However, if you choose to forgo crawl space encapsulation, you’ll end up with plenty of problems, including crawl space moisture, mold, pest infestations, sagging floors, and more.

When you encapsulate your crawl space with a thick and durable vapor barrier like CrawlSeal™, you’ll experience immediate benefits. Your crawl space and home will be safer and healthier, and you won’t have to worry about those moisture-related concerns.

One common misconception about trees on a property is that the tree roots will damage your foundation. The truth is, it isn’t really the tree roots themselves that cause the problem, but the soil.

As tree roots grow to find moisture, they move the soil around. Displaced soil is looser, allowing for easier soil erosion. Properties with loose soil tend to have more foundation and concrete settling problems.

If you have a tree that is close to your home, consider getting a root barrier and cutting down and replanting the tree. Trees should be 15 to 20 feet away from the house.
