everyone I dealt with was very professional. the foreman particularly kept me informed throughout and alerted me to issues that needed to be discussed and for me to decide about. the cleanup at the end made it seem like they'd never been there. (DKR - Brecksville, OH)

Review by in Beloit, OH
Project: Waterproof a Basement or Foundation
Ohio State Waterproofing did an extensive waterproofing project around my entire house: dug out the exterior and installed J-Channel drainage and also dug the interior walls to add footer drains, and entirely renovated sump pump system, and an Easy Breathe air filter system. The improvement in the moisture, dampness, odor in the basement was probably 98%. They had to replace the sump pump a few years later and did so without hesitation. The outside entrance to the basement has been a challenge and has been redone twice since the original project and still cannot be resolved, but overall it was a great job and the company has been great to work with and all of the employees I met over three different visits were great. It WAS a very expensive project, though.

Ohio State was great from start to finish. The people who came out to give me a quote were very knowledgeable and helpful. They thoroughly answered all my questions and I decided to have them waterproof my basement. When they did the actual work, the foreman was very friendly and also knowledgeable, having done this work since 1990. He was informative and the crew was very professional. The customer service and follow up from Ohio State after the work, was completed was fantastic. They followed up several times to see if I was satisfied with the work and to see if I had any problems or questions. I would definitely hire them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking for waterproofing. My parents live two streets away, had their basement done in 1993 and have never had any problems since that time. While this is not an inexpensive home improvement, you get a great bang for your buck with Ohio State. The warranty is also great too!

We had our basement waterproofed week of Aug.14,2017. Jim Russell was the foreman and was a pleasure to work with, he treated the crew with respect and was easy to talk to. DeSean Carmichael and Jose Rivara worked tirelessly to get the job done. Jose is one of the hardest workers my husband has ever seen. It was a job well done and they even cleaned up everything when finished. BAM Chesterland

The team was very professional and accommodating. They kept us informed each day what they were doing and if we had any questions or concerns. They went out of their way to make sure they were not in our way too much. They cleaned up each day and made sure when they were done everything was put back .

Ohio State Waterproofing have been SO professional, thorough, respectful and we would use them again if we had to do it all over. Their Foreman, Colin, and his group of workers could not have been nicer, and they were very hardworking! Our city building inspectors gave them a hard time, and they had to return three times to do work that has turned out to be unnecessary, and, in fact, has to be redone (Hauling away too much dirt before it has had a chance to settle naturally) BOTTOM LINE: We recommend them 100% to whomever asks.

Did a terrible job of clean up. They have been back to our house four times for issues we have had with their work. High pressure salesmen.

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.
