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.

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.
