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. We have been helping Akron for more than 20 years, and our service and permanent, customizable solutions are nationally recognized. We are eager to help you, too, so you can enjoy a safer and healthier living environment for many years to come.

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.

My salesman Kevin was fantastic at coming out and determining how best to handle a situation I was having at the house. He described his recommendations and listened to my concerns and ensured they were written into the contract. The foreman John and co-foreman William were absolutely great when it came time to do the work. They kept me posted on progress all through the job and finished ahead of schedule! They took the time to show me specifically what had been done and made sure before they left the house was cleaned up and I had no further questions for them. All in all fantastic work by the whole team, would definitely recommend working with the team again.

The business was responsive to my needs, communicated clearly and promptly. The team (Wynn and Mike) that did the work was efficient and thorough. They told me what to expect (noise, time). They did the work then explained it to me in a way that I can understand. They cleaned up and left the place cleaner than it was before. Wynn and Mike did an excellent job, I am glad that I went with Ohio Basement Systems.

Our crawlspace was the source of a great deal of humidity our house. Ohio Basement Systems covered the earthen floor with thick plastic sheeting, secured at the top edges to the foundation. They also installed a dehumidifier in the crawspace to help dry out the structure and maintain lower humidity.One year later, during an annual inspection (included in initial cost) we asked that the dehumidifier be repositioned — it was in contact with floor joists and, when running, causing an annoying vibration throughout the house. Technician Alex D. was able to resolve the issue and the house is now not only drier but quieter than before. We are very happy with the work done.

Their service people are always great. Today their technician David Farson came out to look at my basement dehumidifier (which I totally depend on). He was timely, efficient, and very courteous. He explained and went over everything. I really appreciate people you can rely on.

Your technician Chris Shewell did the annal maintenance inspection for our basement waterproofing system installed last year. He was very thorough and set up the air system for a more efficient flow and relocated the control panel to a more convenient location on top. He explained how the air system could be put in an enclosure with ducting if we so desired. He told me the average life span I could expect for the pump backup battery and a replacement during the warranty period needs to be done by OBS to insure proper installation. Very appreciated information. We were quite pleased with the 5 star service he provided. Scott and Joanne Krebs

Ohio Basement Systems sent Kevin out to look at our basement to see what we needed to do about our mini flooding. He was so professional and was able to get us financed at a reasonable rate and payment plan.The team of professionals they sent to do the job was so professional, understanding, and seemed like genuine people to have in your home. I was thoroughly impressed with their work. They work very well as a team. They are super respectful. They speak and greet you with a smile. They were fast and efficient. They even cleaned up after themselves. They were patient with explaining everything so I understood what their job entailed. They did such good work and I was so pleased I wanted to rave about their service.If you are needing anything done Ohio Basement Systems is your company, and be SURE to request by name the team of: Sean, Justin, and Ferro. They are a really, really, a good team. Since I have owned my home for a year their team work and presence was the best I have had in my home thus far. God forbid I need anything else done I am definitely be requesting them by name.
