Foundation Repair in Youngstown, OH

The foundation of your Youngstown home is essential to the structure’s safety and longevity. But given the region’s silt and clay soils and frequent rains, this can be a challenge. Because of foundational susceptibility to shifting and settling, a house may become dangerous to occupy. This will be clear if the walls have damage like cracks or bowing or if the floors sag. Even if these problems are common, you shouldn’t have to put up with the risks they pose. 

Although foundation repair is a significant undertaking, you don’t have to manage it alone. Ohio Basement Systems has been providing foundation repair services to homeowners in Youngstown and the surrounding areas for 20 years. We are eager to assist you as well. Your home’s structural integrity and safety will be restored with our dependable, durable repairs and attention to detail.

Foundation Problem Signs in Youngstown

Foundation problems come in many forms. However, the majority of foundation issues will manifest as numerous visually obvious symptoms. Wall cracks, bowing walls, tilting chimneys, uneven floors, a sagging crawl space, wall and floor gaps, stuck windows and doors, and drywall nail pops are a few signs that your Youngstown home’s foundation needs to be repaired. When in doubt, call the experts at Ohio Basement Systems for a complete foundation inspection because these problems frequently co-occur with others and can be difficult to distinguish. They will also get worse over time and lead to dangerous conditions and expensive repairs. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Youngstown

Our qualified personnel will not only pinpoint issues with your Youngstown foundation but also identify their root causes. Your home’s foundation may be harmed by a number of things, including drought and tree roots. However, the soil around and beneath your home is what actually causes the majority of foundation issues like heaving and settling that lead to visible problem signs. Youngstown’s soil is a combination of silt and clay. Many foundations struggle to stay on firm ground because the region’s 38 inches of yearly rainfall and 40 inches of annual snowfall creates an unstable base. Without sturdy soil to rely on, foundations will shift and sink. 

Foundation Repair Solutions in Youngstown

The foundation of your Youngstown house is different from all others, and it needs foundation repair solutions that are customized to address its unique challenges and repair needs. Our team understands this, which is why we provide a variety of fixes. What we install in your home will depend on the foundation type, the damage it has, your restoration goals, and your budget. Helical piers, push piers, slab piers, crawl space supports, carbon fiber straps, specialized wall beams, and wall anchors are a few of our available solutions that bypass problematic soils and offer permanent support.

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!

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!

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

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.

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 !

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!
