Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because As founder and president, Mike literally built Ohio Basement Systems from ground up, starting with the basement. After years of waterproofing basements, repairing foundations and crawl spaces and finishing basements, he expanded his menu of solutions to include a full line of energy solutions to improve homeowner comfort while lowering energy costs. Ohio Basement Systems represents the very best in product innovation, quality, and energy efficiency for every level of the home. Customer service and sales integrity are core factors in the company's culture and are major considerations when selecting partnering businesses and new products or vendors. With over 20 years experience, Mike and his wife Gayle know from experience that there is a right way and a wrong way to making these improvements. They want to help others make the right decisions and avoid costly mistakes..

We started in this industry in 20.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Review by in Canton, OH
My garage floor had a definite slant. This company was able to level the foundation, raising the floor so water would not pool. They patched the existing cracks. The workers showed up on time and explained each step of the process. They were very efficient and professional. They left the work area immaculate. I would highly recommend Ohio Basement Systems.

Had 2 slabs jacked and needed a stoop jacked up, they recommended someone else for the stoop as their method probably would not work. Honest, professional, knowledgeable. Would use them again if needed

Review by in Mentor, OH
Although all matters were resolved at the conclusion of our business relationship with Ohio Basement Systems, getting there was not a pleasant experience. The contract installation went as planned on the scheduled date but two of the helitals used to lift the foundation punctured a cast iron drain pipe leading out of the house built in 1930 prior to established code. We were fortunate that the punctured line captured only gray water from the kitchen sink on the main floor and the utility sink and washing machine in the basement. We spent $189.00 for a plumber to snake the drain line and subsequently confirm a breakage near the same distance along the house where the first helital was driven into the ground five feet below grade. After several inconclusive phone calls to OBS, we were referred to their insurance company in Cincinnati who promptly rejected the claim by virtue of the damage exemption clause we had to sign before the work could initially proceed. (Our mistake for signing it.) OBS had O.U.P.S. mark the utility lines that only included the natural gas line. (Better utility detection is needed if this type of damage is to be avoided in the future.) Eventually, OBS agreed to send a crew out to reroute the above drains into the main sewage line via a crock and sump pump after sealing the ruptured drain. Six weeks passed from the time of the inflicted damage until the repair was completed. Had OBS ruptured the main sewage line, much more would have been said publically and in the court system about this matter. As it was, dish waste water was collected in a bowl and laundry was cleaned at a Laundromat. The initial work was to include the installation of a rain chute that would have fanned water away from the house. The device wasn't practical; an existing extension tube was already in use so it was never installed. Our Service Representative initially told me the refund check of $258.50 would be given to the technician arriving to repair the drain. He knew nothing about the refund check when asked. A second call to the service rep assured me the check would be sent out first thing the following Monday. No checked arrived the following week. Several more calls to the service rep were routed to voice mail and went unreturned including one which the secretary told me that he was in his office. An email to our Sales Representative yielded a quick reply from him and a seemingly miraculous call from the service rep in the field telling me about a new accounting system that delayed the processing of our refund with a promise that the check would be issued which it finally was. One final note of concern is that the contract said workers would not use tobacco while on our premises; that was contravened by the fact the we disposed several cigarette filters left on the driveway adjacent to the work site. Neither of us smoke.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
