After my basement flooded from a drain back up, in July of 2023, and Pure Clean Water Removal Company with excellent results, dried my basement and noticed some mold in the corner, I called Ohio Basement Systems, and set an appointment with Joel Rhoads within days. I also called Ohio State Waterproofing and it took 2 weeks for an appt. To make a long story short, Joel Rhoads, an honest man that he is, advised to try a water backup plug that lets water drain, but it also plugs backup water from back flowing from a heavy rain. I only had water backup twice in 35 years. I never had actual water seepage through the foundation blocks. He also advised lifting the concrete, because it sunk a little from the outside corner where the mold was, and digging to waterproof that corner. On the other hand, Ohio State Waterproofing Co, with all their bells and whistles tried selling me their complete system, for an absorbent amount of money, and it was all (inside AND outside) or nothing for water seepage that I never had. All I may have been interested in was just outside waterproofing the foundation in that corner. I’m the type of person who tries by baby steps first. In this day of age, it is so hard to trust anyone, and to have come across Joel Rhoads, was a blessing. I believe he saved me a ton of money! I sincerely recommend Joel from Ohio Water Basement Systems for his honesty over greed.

Chris Shewell was our technician for todays annual system inspection, which is now two years old. He thoroughly inspected the system and components, tightened our wall anchors and floor jacks to the appropriate levels and reconfigured several things to offer better operation of the sump pump and commercial grade dehumidifier. His knowledge and professionalism were much appreciated and we will request his service each and every year moving forward. He answered our questions and made sure we were fully satisfied with his service today. Thank you Ohio Basement Systems for providing a technician that clearly knows what he’s doing!

Wet basement remediation can be handled by digging the outside perimeter of the home 🏡 and installing both drainage and applying sealant; an expensive and disruptive method. Since our 64 year old home already had moisture damage in the finished portion of the basement, we concluded the Ohio BS method of removing all of the wet interior wall damage and trenching inside for their proprietary drainage panels would prove most effective. During our initial consult with Kevin, the process sounded complicated, but in two working days a crew of six men who each day communicated their arrival time and intentions, completed the entire project. Ken, Owen and Kalen covered our personal basement contents with plastic and Mitchell, Rocco and Antwane removed an excessive amount of the damaged walls and concrete material. They installed their complete drainage system and a modern sump that continues to drain water 💦 from outside the home, the air conditioning condensate, water softener / filter flush, dehumidifiers and utility sink. The peace of mind in not having any one of these water sources Again create floor, wall or furniture damage is worth the expense and temporary inconvenience. OBS transferable, all time warranty is a Plus !

We worked with multiple teams from Ohio Basement Systems to resolve the foundation problems on our century home. All teams were communicative, professional, on time and conscientious about the work they were doing to our home. I didn't expect so much professionalism at every point. The teams included: Kevin Townsend, Robert Baser, Rashawn Dickson and their teams: Dylan, Matt and Ovid.
