Basement Waterproofing in Youngstown, OH

Basement Problem Signs in Youngstown

The most obvious sign that there is something wrong in your Youngstown basement is the presence of water, whether it is trickling down the walls, puddling on the floor, or flooding the entire space. Some problem signs, however, can sometimes fly under the radar. Be on the lookout for mold, efflorescence on concrete walls and floors, unpleasant odors, and condensation on windows and ductwork. Time is not on your side with these issues, as they will merely get worse the longer they continue and lead to more widespread damage and costly repairs. Fixing them the right way before they get out of hand is the best way to ensure your basement’s health and safety. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Youngstown

While your basement is located inside your home, damage is typically caused by external forces. These include Youngstown’s soil and weather, and how they interact to affect your home. Clay and silt soils in the area respond to water in various ways. Clay expands and contracts, and silt might wash away. Youngstown also averages 38 inches of annual rainfall and 40 inches of annual snowfall. This much water and runoff will cause the soil to readily flood, impose hydrostatic pressure on your basement walls, and lead to cracks and leaks. Your basement may also sustain damage from internal sources including broken sump pumps, leaking water heaters, or burst pipes. 

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Youngstown

No two basements in Youngstown are alike, which is why it is important to have repairs specifically tailored to what your home needs. All the basement waterproofing solutions we install, from interior drainage and sump pumps to dehumidifiers and wall vapor barriers, are fully customizable. They each have their own strengths and purpose, and they function best when installed together to act as a comprehensive waterproofing system. This gives your basement the complete protection it deserves. Each product is also protected by a long-term, transferrable, nationally backed warranty. 

Why Choose Ohio Basement Systems?

Both deserve unwavering defense with trustworthy repair options. That’s where Ohio Basement Systems can help.

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!

Rock solid good company. Have dealt with them in the past and have no complaints about their services and products.In fact, Aaron from Ohio Basement Systems was here today to check and service my Super Sump dual pump with battery backup system that was worked extremely hard during last Wednesday's bad evening storm. All is good with it! Aaron is a real nice young man as well. Real good experience as usual with Ohio Basement Systems.Darrin Kocjancic

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 !

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.

Ohio Basement Systems were super professional, courteous, price effective, and friendly. Darin DeRosa not only explained things plainly but did not push other services that we did not want. He was also very patient, knowing we were going through a refinance.The crew that came out to do the job actually called when they were running a little late, which was very nice. They did great work, were friendly and cleaned up completely after they were done.A+ to all involved!

After experiencing water in our basement 4 separate times in a single month, we called Ohio Basement Systems and they promptly returned our call and scheduled a visit within 3 days. We were impressed by the company’s lifetime transferable warranty. We were able to schedule the work within 2 weeks and we’re fortunate to have the very professional and knowledgeable crew of Rashawn, Ovid and Cody. They were a pleasure to work with and our dog is really going to miss them!

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.
