Basement Waterproofing in Akron, OH

Basements in Akron, OH, homes are versatile spaces that can be used for extra living, entertainment areas, and beyond, but they can also be hazardous areas of your home. Because most basements are primarily underground, they are subject to moisture and dampness. The presence of moisture and water in your basement can lead to toxic mold growth and weakened structural supports, which puts your family’s health and your home’s safety in jeopardy. 

Basement problems will be a thing of the past when you work with Ohio Basement Systems to permanently waterproof your basement.

Basement Problem Signs in Akron

Whether you use your Akron basement frequently or hardly go down to this area of your home, there are a few issues you will come across indicating the need for basement waterproofing or other repairs. The most common problem signs to be aware of include flooding, floor leaks, wet drywall, condensation, mold growing in your basement or other areas of your home, efflorescence on concrete walls or floors, and musty odors in the basement or throughout your home. To stop these and other issues before they worsen, it’s essential to call our experienced team at Ohio Basement Systems for a free inspection as soon as you start to notice them. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Akron

Basement damage can be caused by a variety of factors. Interior sources include a broken sump pump, leaking water heater, or burst plumbing line, but the soil under and around your Akron home is the most common cause of basement problems. The dirt that was removed during the construction of your home is restored when the basement walls are built. The clay bowl effect and the establishment of an artificial water table result from constant precipitation oversaturating this loose silty loam soil. Akron typically receives 38 inches of rain and 42 inches of snow annually, which keeps the ground moist almost year-round. Basement walls will crack and leak as a result of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the soil creates. Poor foundation drainage around your home also can direct leaks inside your basement. 

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Akron

Every basement is different, and the basement waterproofing solutions we install will be customized to meet your Akron basement’s specific needs. Your Ohio Basement Systems inspector may recommend the installation of a wall vapor barrier, interior drainage, a sump pump, an energy-efficient dehumidifier, or other solutions. Each is important and has its own benefits, but they are all designed to work together as a complete waterproofing system that provides comprehensive protection.
