Review by in Mentor, OH
They bid rather high but when they worked, they went above and beyond. I still need to seal the band joists in order for the e-z breathe system to do its job. The smell of new plastic from encapsulating of my crawl space fills my house when the furnace runs. But sealing those was not in the original bid. The taping of the seams of the crawl space liner did seem a bit sloppy as they did not get all of the creases out of the liner before installation. They did leave me the extra tape though. As for the waterproofing itself, they did what was needed to take care of the water and even routed the drain tile the hard way to ensure that the water could get away from the house. It did feel a bit shady when the initial bid was 13,000 but they asked to come back, lowered the bid to 10,000 and added encapsulating to the work. It seemed like they gave an initial bid, waited to see if I would take it, then bid lower because I was still deciding. On the other hand, it was a tricky situation and a more experienced employee doing a re-evaluation may have been legitimately warranted.

Project: Install or Replace a Well Pump
The crew was professional, courteous, started work on time every morning, and answered all our questions or concerns. Not very happy with the huge hole they left in my family room wall where they were suppose to "drill" a hole to plug in the pump. It looks more like they hit the wall with a hammer and left a big, shredded hole in our wainscot on our wall. I feel after spending so much money they should provide an electrician or proper way to support the pump they are installing. Newton Falls, Ohio

Although I did have some issues related to communication with the company, my concerns were addressed promptly, fairly, and respectfully. I can see that Ohio State Waterproofing does have their customers satisfaction in mind and that is reassuring while undertaking such an invasive home project. The crew was timely, courteous and did a great job with the installation and clean up process; they were very respectful of my property inside and out. MB Lyndhurst,OH

Review by in Cleveland, OH
My experience with this company was very satisfying from the first inspection to all the work that was done. The crew that was doing the work in the house were very professional and kept us informed of everything that they were doing. I would recommend this company to my friends and family.

Review by in Akron, OH
Very happy with our experience with Ohio State Waterproofing. From day one when the salesmen sat down with us to talk about our options until the last day the crew was here, we were very impressed with OSW. We chose to be "on call" and were thrilled when they arrived less than a week later to do the work. Chester and his crew were respectful of our home and belongings and also very kind and courteous to us while working. The crew cleaned up after themselves and answered any and all questions I had during their time at our home. Very glad that we chose OSW and we are looking forward to a nice dry basement to enjoy for years to come! Joanna F. Akron, Ohio

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
