F.A.Q.’s

From basement water problems to structural foundation issues, there’s a lot to take in. Here are just a few of the most frequently asked questions we get everyday.
Should I do interior or exterior waterproofing?
Depending on your goals, foundation type, and budget, each option for controlling basement water has its pros and cons. Exterior waterproofing will likely cost more due to excavation, material cost, and replacing everything that surrounds your home like a driveway, sidewalk, deck, or landscaping. On the other hand, interior basement waterproofing or water control can be a cost-effective solution to a dry basement. This method does requires any finished area of the basement to be removed before installation. There may be some appliances and utilities to be moved out of the way as well. The Ohio Basement Company can accomplish a dry living space with all methods of water control.
Why should I fix a small crack in my foundation wall?
Many factors can be at play when you notice cracking walls and floors. Cracks in your foundation wall and basement floor are likely the symptoms of on-going water issues. These problems are caused by subsoil erosion under your foundation, excessive hydro-static pressure, and lateral earth pressure. With the progressive nature of these water issues, we recommend fixing minor issues when possible, before it becomes an expensive structural repair in the future.
How is it basement waterproofing if you are letting the water in?
Over the years our industry has adopted common terms to describe the different methods of getting a basement dry. It has become easier to explain what we do when its described as “basement waterproofing”. Technically, basement or foundation waterproofing is done from the exterior of the home. Over time, interior drainage systems or water mitigation systems have adopted the same name for simplicity. Both methods can result in a dry and healthy living space when properly applied.
What’s a battery backup sump pump system?
Battery backup pumps are an important part of your basement waterproofing system. During heavy thunderstorms, there is always a chance that your power may temporarily go out. With an active sump pump, the excess ground water and run-off from the storm can fill up the waterproofing system and begin to appear on the basement floor. Basement flooding can occur and damage you belongings. Our battery backup systems can pump up to 13,000 gallons while the power is out. Battery backups give you piece of mind when outages occur.
Does basement waterproofing paint work?
Paint products that are marketed as “waterproof” are not going to stop the accumulation of water inside of your basement. They may temporarily stop water vapor transfer through walls but eventually break down after concealing a problem that could have otherwise been solved without it. Masonry paint products can be a great addition to your walls after the proper system to mange ground water has been installed.
