Homeowner Tim K. of Fairview Park, Ohio had invested a lot of time and money into making his home a comfortable and safe place to raise a family. However, there was one issue that had been bothering him for some time: the crawl space beneath the house.
After noticing that the floors were beginning to sag, Tim discovered that the crawl space was not properly supported and was at risk of collapsing. He knew he had to take action before it was too late. So, he hired The Basement Guys® to reinforce the crawl space with steel foundation support jacks.
We carefully inspected the crawl space and determined the best course of action before settling on the SmartJack® crawl space support system. We installed heavy stainless steel beams in the unfinished floor, then tightened the jacks, making sure to level the floor joists on the ceiling to secure them in place.

A young couple had recently moved into their new South Euclid, Ohio home and had high hopes for the unfinished basement. They planned to turn it into a cozy den for entertaining, but first, they needed to address the moisture problem. Whenever it rained, water would seep through the walls and create a musty smell. Looking to kickstart their ambitious dream home plans, they called in The Basement Guys® for a waterproofing overhaul.
Our team started by digging trenches around the perimeter of the basement to install WaterGuard® French drains. This low-profile solution would collect any water that might seep through the walls before it had a chance to penetrate into the living space. Then, just for an added layer of security, we installed a powerful SuperSump® sump pump that would protect the home from more severe flooding, as well as a battery-powered UltraSump® backup unit for emergencies.
When we were finished, the basement was transformed. The musty smell was gone, and the walls were safe and dry. The excited new homeowners could now begin the process of turning the unfinished basement into a cozy living space, knowing that it was protected from moisture damage.
Whether your basement is unfinished or fully furnished, waterproofing services from The Basement Guys® are the ultimate way to ensure its safety. Get started today with a free in-home estimate.
Over time, heavy vehicles and natural erosion can cause even the sturdiest concrete surfaces to sink and crack. One homeowner in Parma, Ohio discovered this recently, as a heavy rainy season washed out the loose soil beneath his driveway, which resulted in large gaps and cracks between each slab. Looking for a fast solution, he reached out to The Basement Guys®.
After a walkthrough and service estimate, our experienced concrete repair team got to work injecting PolyLevel® expanding foam beneath the sunken areas. The polyurethane solution expanded to fill in the soil below, lifting the slabs to their original height. The team then filled the cracks with NexusPro silicone sealant to prevent any water from penetrating the surface and causing further damage.
The transformation was remarkable. The driveway and walkway looked brand new, and the level surface made it easier for the family to move around. The homeowner had considered a complete replacement, but our PolyLevel® solution saved him thousands of dollars and was completed in just a few hours.

For one Cleveland, Ohio homeowner, a wet winter exposed major problems in the basement. A deep freeze and burst pipe had filled the basement with water, causing damage to his belongings and a significant amount of stress. When spring came, the owner decided to hire The Basement Guys® for new drainage and flood protection upgrades.
Once we worked with the owner to determine a plan of action, we quickly got to work. A crew started by removing a portion of flooring along the base of the basement walls to dig a trench around the perimeter of the basement. Next, they installed a WaterGuard® French drain system, which would redirect any water away from the foundation of the house and into the sump pump. As for the pump itself, a SuperSump® sump pump system was just the thing to ensure that any future flooding would be handled quickly and efficiently.
Thanks to these protective measures, the home was ready for everything from spring rains to winter storms. For the same peace of mind in your basement, give us a call today and schedule a free basement waterproofing estimate.

Steve had been living in his Cleveland, Ohio home for years, but for the past few months, he had been growing increasingly concerned about water damage in the basement. He knew he needed to take action before the problem got worse, so he hired the team of waterproofing experts at The Basement Guys® to fix the problem.
Following an extensive walkthrough, we laid out a plan for waterproofing Steve's home. We recommended installing a TripleSafe™ sump pump to cycle out any water that entered the basement. This powerful system features a three-in-one design, including a battery-powered backup, to ensure reliable drainage. We also installed WaterGuard® French drains to divert water away from the foundation, and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to keep the air dry and prevent mold growth.
With these preventative measures in place, Steve was happy he could prevent further water intrusion in the basement before it caused any serious damage. Worried about leaks or floods impacting the health and safety of your basement? Reach out to The Basement Guys® today to schedule a free waterproofing estimate.
One homeowner in Parma, Ohio had been experiencing water seepage in his basement for quite some time. After unsuccessfully trying out various DIY solutions, nothing seemed to work. He realized he needed professional assistance, so he turned to The Basement Guys®.
After a walkthrough, we suggested new drainage along the base of the walls that were leaking, and a new sump pump to handle the discharge. We started by digging trenches around the perimeter of the basement and installing WaterGuard® perimeter drain pipes. These low-profile drains would collect any water that seeped into the basement and redirect it before any damage could occur. Next, we installed a SuperSump® sump pump below the basement floor. The powerful cast iron pump system would collect any water that the French drains couldn't handle and cycle it out of the basement.
The process took a few days, but the homeowner was pleased with the result. The basement was now dry and free of any water damage. If your home could use the peace of mind that comes with an expertly waterproofed basement, contact The Basement Guys® today to get started with a no-cost, no-obligation estimate.
A home in Cleveland Heights, Ohio was plagued by a few troublesome issues. Namely, the old discharge line running from the pipes in the basement out under the main walkway had begun to fall apart. The homeowner had taken great care of the place over the years, but this issue needed immediate professional help. The owner contacted The Basement Guys® to install a new pipe while keeping damage to the walkway to a minimum.
A crew arrived promptly, and they immediately got to work. They dug up the old line and installed a new one, making sure it was properly sloped for optimal drainage. Next came the tricky part: patching, sealing, and leveling the concrete slabs above it. Rather than excavate further by mudjacking, we opted to use PolyLevel® to level the slabs and seal the cracks using NexusPro sealant, taking great care not to damage the surrounding landscape or disturb the neighbors. It was a meticulous process, but before long the walkway was safely level again.
Thanks to comprehensive care and quality products from The Basement Guys®, this two-step process left the home safer and more beautiful than ever. Whether you're facing a cracked and uneven driveway or a burst drainage pipe, you can count on our team of experts to deliver exceptional results.

David and Michelle had been living in their Euclid, Ohio, home for over 20 years. Over the years, the walkway leading up to the front door had begun to sink, creating an unsightly and potentially hazardous situation. Concrete slab settlement is common for structures like walkways or driveways, which are often installed directly over soil or gravel. The weight of the concrete, as well as whatever rests on top of it, can begin to push the slabs into the soil.
Looking for a quick and permanent fix, the couple called The Basement Guys®. Our experienced concrete repair team had just the solution in mind, and as soon as the weather permitted, they set to work. We used PolyLevel® expanding foam injections to fill in the area underneath the sunken slabs that had become full of loose soil or air pockets. As the foam expanded and hardened, the slabs slowly pushed out of the soil and back in place.
By the end of the day, the job was complete. The homeowners were grateful that they could once again welcome guests to their home without worrying about tripping on a sunken walkway. Could you use the same peace of mind? Give us a call today to schedule a free concrete repair estimate.
The foundation support team at The Basement Guys® was recently called in to evaluate a basement in Garfield Heights, Ohio. In the past year or so, the homeowner had started to notice some cracks in the basement foundation. At first, she thought they were just cosmetic, but when they started to get bigger, she began to suspect serious structural issues.
When our team arrived, they evaluated the space and determined that uneven settlement was causing the foundation to shift and crack. If left untreated, these cracks could get worse, leading to problems like leaks and even total wall collapse. The crew opted to install CarbonArmor® support straps along the cracked walls to reinforce them.
These lightweight and flexible carbon fiber strips are immensely strong, capable of bracing walls against tremendous pressure from settlement or shifting soil. They were affixed to the wall and tightened, then sealed in place with a powerful epoxy.
This quick and easy fix would keep the foundation safe from further settlement issues for years to come. Curious to learn more about the benefits of CarbonArmor® reinforcement by The Basement Guys®? Give us a call today and ask for a free no-obligation foundation repair estimate.

They knew the basement well from their previous work, which made the installation process much smoother.

Then, the team worked methodically to dig a trench around the perimeter of the basement, making sure to slope it away from the house to ensure proper water flow.

In one Shaker Heights, Ohio, home, a damp and musty basement was causing problems for the homeowners. They had tried everything from portable dehumidifiers to waterproofing paint, but nothing seemed to work. Finally, they decided to call in The Basement Guys® for help.
Our waterproofing crew arrived and carefully assessed the basement to determine the best course of action. They recommended installing WaterGuard® below-floor drainpipes to channel water away from the foundation walls and a CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls to prevent moisture from seeping into the basement.
The installation process began with the excavation of the basement perimeter, where the new drainage system was installed. The WaterGuard® system was connected to a sump pump, which would remove any excess water from the basement. Next, the water-resistant antimicrobial vapor barrier was installed on the walls of the basement to prevent moisture from seeping through.
The homeowners were impressed with the work and could immediately notice a difference in the air quality of the basement. The damp and musty smell was gone, and the air felt fresher and cleaner. With the new drainage system and vapor barrier in place, the homeowners could finally use their basement for storage and additional living space without fear of water damage or mold growth.

In Cleveland, Ohio, a planned home renovation project had hit a major roadblock: over the years, the floors had begun to sag, causing concern for the safety of the home. The homeowner contacted The Basement Guys®, who recommended using foundation support jacks to treat the problem quickly without major disruptions to the ongoing project.
Our foundation repair team started by excavating portions of the poured concrete basement floor. Then, once we had the holes ready, we installed heavy-duty galvanized steel support beams in the floor to redistribute and level out the weight of the floor joists above. Adjustable SmartJack® support jacks allowed us to tighten the connection between these metal posts and the floors above, fine-tuning the fit until the floors above were evenly supported and perfectly level.
The homeowner was thrilled with the results and felt confident in the safety of his home once again. His family could walk across the floors without fear of falling or tripping, and more importantly, he could begin work on his long-awaited project with the added peace of mind that comes with a stable, level foundation.

When Jayme bought her first home in Cleveland, Ohio, she knew that there were some repairs that needed to be done. One of the most important was to update the insulation and water protection for the crawl space under the house.
After a call to The Basement Guys®, our crawl space waterproofing experts got to work. We evaluated the space and recommended a number of changes. First, new drainage matting for the floors would help ensure that any water in the crawl space could be easily removed. Additionally, without proper ventilation, the crawl space could become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, so a dehumidifier was essential. Our installation team laid down CleanSpace® performance matting on the floor to channel water out to the existing perimeter drain. Then, we installed a portable yet powerful SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to ensure that the atmosphere of the crawl space would remain safe and dry for years to come.
Thanks to these quick fixes, Jayme's new home enjoyed improved energy efficiency and protection from harsh Northeast Ohio weather. To learn more about our suite of crawl space waterproofing products and solutions, give us a call today and schedule your complimentary in-home estimate.
Homeowner Kirk S. Fairview Park, Ohio was excited about the potential of his new home, but he was also worried about the basement. The damp, musty atmosphere and lack of adequate drainage posed a potential risk to the overall health and safety of the property, and he knew that he had to do something about it.
Kirk decided to call a professional to help him upgrade the waterproofing capabilities of his basement. The Basement Guys® arrived and promptly set to assessing the space and determining the best path forward.
The main priority was installing a new SuperSump® sump pump system, which would help keep the basement dry during heavy rainfalls. Then, we installed WaterGuard® French drains, which would help channel any water in the basement to the pump system and away from the house. Finally, to address the unpleasant atmosphere, we installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to keep the air in the basement dry and prevent mold and mildew growth.

The floors in one Shaker Heights, Ohio home had begun to feel springy and uneven, causing the homeowner to worry about the structural integrity of the foundation. Typically, your home's floors are held up and leveled by joists located in the basement or crawl space below. These joists distribute the weight of the floors above evenly, but a lack of support in the form of foundation beams can cause them to sag. Looking for a fast and long-lasting fix, the homeowners reached out to The Basement Guys®. After walking through the space, we identified a few spots in the basement where support for the joists was particularly lacking, leading to the saggy floors above. To reinforce these areas, we installed SmartJack® support beams. Made of durable galvanized steel, the strong I-beams are much stronger than traditional concrete posts. Likewise, the adjustable heads on SmartJack® beams allow for much more precise and effective reinforcement. We were even able to tighten the braces to level out and stabilize the floors above. For more information on our foundation support services, call The Basement Guys® today and schedule a free no-obligation estimate.
Foundation settlement is common for older homes, but one Cleveland Heights, Ohio homeowner found out the hard way what can happen when the settlement process is ignored for too long. One foundation wall in particular had been slowly buckling inward for quite some time, causing light cracking over the years, but when the home's gorgeous red brick exterior started to crumble and fall off, the problem became too visible to ignore. The homeowner reached out to The Basement Guys® for help.
We installed our PowerBrace® durable foundation wall supports along the affected area. Rugged stainless steel I-beams distributed evenly along the wall help brace against settlement pressure and push back. By tightening the braces, we even managed to push the wall back into place with relative ease. This simple, effective and lasting procedure reinforced the wall and prevented future damage to the home or the foundation. To learn more about PowerBrace® and its benefits, give us a call today and ask about our free no-obligation home service estimates.
Homeowner Russel P. of Middleburg Heights, Ohio was worried about the stability of his home's foundation after noticing telltale signs of settlement. Foundation settlement is a common occurrence in the years after a home is built, as the weak, loose soil underneath the foundation begins to compress under the sheer weight of the home, causing it to sink. If your foundation settles unevenly, you may notice cracks and other structural weaknesses begin to form. Wary of future problems, Russel called The Basement Guys® for help. We suggested using helical piers to burrow underneath the foundation and into the soil below. These heavy-duty steel supports are then connected to a powerful hydraulic lifting system and raised to restore the home to its proper position. Once the foundation was level, we filled in the trench we dug around the perimeter of the house to install the piers, leaving the home as good as new. For more information on how our foundation support solutions can work for your home, call The Basement Guys® today and ask for a free no-obligation service estimate.
When Megan H. of Parma, Ohio moved into her new home, she was disappointed to discover that the basement lacked a drainage system. Before she could begin her planned remodel of the space into a home office and gym space, she needed to shore up its defenses from water intrusion. With that in mind, she turned to The Basement Guys®.
One of our waterproofing crews set to work excavating a portion of the poured concrete floor around the base of the walls. Once the space was clear, we installed WaterGuard® perimeter drains underneath the floor. This effective and discreet French drain system collects water from cracks and other vulnerabilities in the walls and diverts it to a sump pump for efficient removal. Additionally, the low profile ensured that the new drain line would have no impact on the usable space in the basement, which was ideal for the extensive remodeling project ahead.
We connected the WaterGuard® line to a new SuperSump® sump pump. This powerful pump system removes up to 2,200 gallons of water per hour from wet basements, making it perfect for maintaining dry basements even during emergencies like severe floods.
Thanks to The Basement Guys®, Megan's new home was protected against common threats such as leaking or flooding. Could your home use similar protection? Call us today and schedule a free in-home estimate.
A homeowner in Cleveland Heights, Ohio noticed water pooling in his basement after heavy rain. This proved to be a substantial issue, as the basement lacked a suitable drainage line and pump system to remove the water efficiently. He called The Basement Guys® for a service estimate, and our team recommended a few fixes.
To begin, we excavated a portion of the concrete floor of the basement to install WaterGuard® perimeter drains. A perimeter drainage system is installed around the perimeter of the basement and is designed to redirect water away from the foundation and into a drainage area. By placing the WaterGuard® line below ground and just above the foundation footing, our system prevents clogging or backups.
The next step in the process involved installation of a new sump pump. A sump pump system is installed in a pit, or sump, in the basement and is designed to pump water out of the home. We opted to install our SuperSump® cast iron sump pump system to ensure cost-effective and reliable water removal. We then finished by installing a new discharge line with IceGuard® weather protection.
Thanks to basement waterproofing service from The Basement Guys®, this home was ready for future water intrusion issues. Could your home use the same protection? Call us today and schedule your free estimate.
Homeowners in Cleveland, Ohio wanted a simple and effective way to prevent water from entering their home's crawl space. The home was particularly susceptible to water intrusion, as it sat at the base of a hilly neighborhood. After heavy rainfall, water would track down the hill and towards the foundation of the home, exerting tremendous hydrostatic pressure which could lead to leaks and floods if the foundation gave out.
After a thorough walkthrough of the space, The Basement Guys® suggested a few simple changes. First, we applied SilverGlo® foam insulation along the crawl space walls to completely seal any gaps that appeared in the foundation or along the rim joists. Then, we laid a CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the dirt floor to prevent water from seeping up through the soil. Similar to a pool liner, this heavy duty polyethylene sheeting is puncture and tear resistant, providing durable coverage for the space. Additionally, the antimicrobial UltraFresh treatment prevents mold growth in the crawl space, cultivating a safe, dry and healthy atmosphere.
Our crawl space waterproofing services rendered this house perfectly safe from water intrusion. To learn more about our crawl space repair products and services, call The Basement Guys® today and request a no-cost estimate.
For one new homeowner in Cleveland, Ohio, her new basement was full of opportunities. The wide open space made it ideal for everything from a guest bedroom to a fully equipped home theater. But before she could start evaluating her options for a remodel, it was important to address the lack of drainage. In an area like hers, with heavy year-round precipitation and a sloped, hilly neighborhood with plenty of room for water runoff, basement waterproofing was essential for her peace of mind. The homeowner decided to call The Basement Guys® to explore her waterproofing options and find the best solution for the home.
We began by installing WaterGuard® French drains along the perimeter of the basement. These drains rest underneath the floor and just above the foundation footing, perfectly placed to catch stray leaks through the walls and route them to a sump pump for removal. Our SuperSump® premier sump pump is ideal for this. Featuring a powerful Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower cast iron pump, this unit can keep your basement dry even during severe floods.
Finally, to prevent water intrusion through the walls and brighten the space for the pending remodel, we installed BrightWall® panels on the basement walls. This flexible and adaptive material fits over walls of virtually any shape and size, creating an antimicrobial vapor barrier that repels moisture.
With these measures in place, the basement was ready for remodeling with total waterproof security. To learn more, call The Basement Guys® and schedule a free basement waterproofing estimate for your home.
Homeowners in Cleveland, Ohio grew concerned after seeing some mold along the perimeter walls of their finished basement. The multi-use space boasted a finished den with carpeted flooring, a laundry room and a storage room. Since there was no drainage system in the basement, further water intrusion threatened to damage all of these areas, while additional mold development created an unhealthy atmosphere for their asthmatic daughter to play in. To take care of this problem and safeguard against future ones, they called The Basement Guys®.
Our team of waterproofing experts recommended several changes. First, we tore up a small strip of carpet along the base of the perimeter walls and excavated some of the concrete flooring below to create space for an underground drainage line. WaterGuard® French drains rest underneath the foundation to collect water from the walls and divert it to a sump pump for removal. In addition to leaving no impact on the usable space in the basement, this placement resists clogging from mud and debris. Then, we installed a powerful SuperSump® sump pump and hooked it up to the drainpipes to ensure speedy and reliable water discharge.

One homeowner in Gates Mills, Ohio discovered signs of cold, wet air infiltrating his crawl space. On bitter winter days, his floors would feel cold to the touch, and there was visible damp underground. A poorly insulated home can lead to a variety of problems, especially when it comes to heating your home and avoiding excess energy costs. To take care of this issue before the cold season really set in, he called The Basement Guys®.
To dry out the crawl space, we installed a portable SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. This handy unit rests comfortably in tight spaces and regulates moisture levels in the air while also filtering out contaminants like dust and pollen.
Then, we installed SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation along the walls of the crawl space to maintain the dry, airtight atmosphere we were creating. This innovative material resists water damage far better than traditional fiberglass insulation, providing lasting support for the crawl space. Once that was in place, we created a perfect seal against the rim joists and other gaps in the crawl space using foam insulation.
These simple measures resulted in a well-insulated home prepared for the worst of winter weather. Looking to save on your energy bill this season? Call The Basement Guys® today for a free in-home crawl space insulation estimate.
Homeowner Gabriel M. of Richmond, Ohio wanted to safeguard his new home from water intrusion via leaks or flooding. Ideally, the waterproofing solution for his space would be of the set-and-forget variety, providing peace of mind with minimal upkeep required. Additionally, he was hoping to have backups installed to ensure that the basement would stay dry even if his primary system failed or power was cut to the home. With all of that in mind, The Basement Guys® had the perfect suggestion for his needs.
The TripleSafe™ sump pump system features three separate sump pumps to provide the ultimate in basement waterproofing. The main cast iron Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower pump offers low-power routine performance. Meanwhile, a heavy duty backup pump is designed to kick in during severe floods. Lastly, the included UltraSump® battery-powered backup pump will take over in the event of total electrical outage.
We connected the TripleSump® system to a discharge line featuring an IceGuard® adapter to ensure year-round reliability. That way, even if the pipes below should freeze, water will continue to be pumped out of the basement as needed.
Gabriel's home was thoroughly waterproofed with the help of the deluxe TripleSafe™ system. To learn more about this powerful all-in-one sump pump solution, call The Basement Guys® today for a free estimate.
For years, one Cleveland, Ohio homeowner used her basement as a storage space. As items accumulated down there, it was easy for her to miss telltale signs of water intrusion. Along some cracks in the foundation and at gaps and seams by the windows, external pressure had begun to force water through and into the home. As this water pooled inside, it discolored walls and damaged some of the items in the storage space. By the time the homeowner noticed, this issue had become quite severe, and she enlisted The Basement Guys® for help in treating it.
Once the space was cleared out, we began by excavating a segment of the concrete slab floor to install perimeter drains underground. The WaterGuard® basement drainage system collects water quickly and discreetly and routes it to a sump pump system for removal. To maximize the efficiency of this process, we also installed our SuperSump® sump pump system. This powerful pump boasts a Zoeller® 1/3 horsepower system, capable of pumping over 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of the home.
With her new comprehensive waterproofing protection in place, the homeowner enjoyed renewed peace of mind in her basement. Could you use the same level of security in your space? Call The Basement Guys® today and schedule a no-cost waterproofing estimate.
For one Cleveland, Ohio homeowner, a recent bout of extreme cold weather posed a serious problem. The pipes had burst, causing severe water damage in the home.

Our installation team recommended a comprehensive sump pump system with multiple backups in the event of future failure. We installed a TripleSafe™ sump pump with three levels of advanced protection. Featuring a two-pump system designed to kick in during heavy water intrusion or pump failure and a third battery-powered pump for use during outages, the TripleSafe™ system offers advanced peace of mind for your home.
Then, we installed a new discharge system outside the home with IceGuard® protection. This handy adapter ensures that your pump system will still cycle water out of your home even if the underground drainage has frozen over.
This basement waterproofing overhaul was installed quickly and efficiently, with minimal disruption to the home. For more information on our waterproofing products and services, call The Basement Guys® today and arrange for a free service estimate.
Richard B., a homeowner in Cleveland Heights, Ohio was looking to convert his basement from a storage space to a fully finished game room. The first order of business was to upgrade the home's waterproofing and drainage systems. Over the years, minor leaks had occurred here and there, and the accumulated water intrusion led to some noticeable damage along the foundation walls. To prevent issues like this from affecting his new remodeling plans, Richard called The Basement Guys®.
Our team set to work, excavating a portion of floor along the perimeter walls to install WaterGuard® drains. These underground French drainpipes collect water that seeps through foundation walls and funnels it out to a sump pump system for easy removal. By resting below the floor and away from areas where mud and debris builds up, WaterGuard® drains provide reliable clog-free operation year-round.
Once the drains were in place, we installed a SuperSump® sump pump system and connected it to the drainage pipes. This powerful sump pump system is capable of cycling thousands of gallons of water per hour out of the basement, ensuring a safe and dry space even during severe flooding events. As a finishing touch, we applied IceGuard® discharge line protection to the downspout for added peace of mind.
This easy and effective basement waterproofing upgrade allowed Richard to begin his basement remodel with confidence. Curious about shoring up your own home's waterproofing defenses? Call The Basement Guys® today for a no-cost waterproofing estimate.
Gina D., a homeowner in Cleveland, Ohio, felt that the drainage system in her basement wouldn't cut it for another wet winter season. To upgrade her home's defenses, she turned to The Basement Guys®. After a thorough evaluation of the space, we offered a few simple basement waterproofing solutions.
First, we needed to add new drainpipes outside the home to funnel water out of the basement and away from the foundation. As water is drained out, it can erode the soil near the foundation and contribute to future problems like settlement and sinking. By installing new pipes outside to divert the water away, we helped prevent this structural weakening.
In addition to the basement, Gina was concerned about the waterproofing capabilities of her roof and gutter system. Whether through blockage or simply heavy water accumulation, too few or too weak gutters and downspouts can damage the home. We installed a few new downspouts along the gutters to provide smooth, reliable water removal.
Thanks to The Basement Guys®, Gina's home was ready for the worst of winter weather for years to come. Looking to secure your home from leaks and floods? Call us today for a no-cost, no-obligation basement waterproofing estimate.
After years of exposure to the elements, the fiberglass insulation in one Mayfield Village, Ohio home was beginning to fail. Traditional fiberglass insulation, though it was the standard for many years, is susceptible to weakening after prolonged exposure to water. As it loses its R-value, it is less effective at retaining warm air in the home. As another chilly winter approached, the homeowners reached out to The Basement Guys® for help.
After a thorough evaluation of the space, we recommended our SilverGlo™ foam insulation system. To prep the crawl space, we started by sealing gaps found around the foundation perimeter at the rim joists. This prevents frigid air from entering the home.
Then, we applied the SilverGlo™ foam along the crawl space walls. Compared to fiberglass, this product absorbs virtually no moisture and experiences no drop in R-value after exposure to water. This creates an air- and watertight seal capable of retaining heat much better than traditional fiberglass insulation.
The SilverGlo™ system offers advanced protection from common insulation problems. To upgrade your home's defenses this winter, call The Basement Guys® for a zero obligation free service estimate.
A homeowner in Parma Heights, Ohio noticed that his home had begun to settle. This is a common problem, especially as homes age, and he wanted to take care of it now rather than wait and let the condition deteriorate further. After placing a proactive call to The Basement Guys® for a free consultation, we worked with him to devise a foundation support solution that would raise the home quickly and safely.
Given the tough soil conditions common in late fall, we opted to use helical foundation piers. The addition of sturdy steel helical plates made it easier to dig through rough terrain for a smooth installation, and when it came time to raise the foundation, these plates also provided extra support for weight distribution.
Once the piers were in place, a powerful hydraulic lift system was connected to each one so they could push the foundation up evenly in unison. This method ensures a level lift and prevents unnecessary stress which can damage the foundation. Ultimately, we were able to raise and level the foundation with no major issues.
Foundation piers are the perfect solution for lifting settled foundations. To learn more about this system and arrange for repairs of your own, call The Basement Guys® and set up a free in-home estimate.
A young couple in Garfield Heights, Ohio had just purchased their first home when they noticed a potentially serious problem: the waterproofing and drainage in their new basement was anything but new, and signs of water damage were already present. The existing drainage had clogged and stalled years ago, allowing water to accumulate below the floor and create cracks in the basement. Looking to upgrade this system before things got worse, the homeowners called The Basement Guys®.
After visiting the property, our team recommended a new below ground drainage line. We excavated a portion of floor along the perimeter of the foundation and installed WaterGuard® drainpipes. These pipes sit below the floor, collecting water that leaks through the walls and depositing it in a sump pump system for removal.
After securing the new drainage line, we connected it to a brand new SuperSump® pump system. These top-of-the-line sump pumps can remove upwards of 2,000 gallons of water per hour from afflicted basements. Then, to ensure reliable year-round use, we added an IceGuard® discharge line protector.
These Garfield Heights homeowners can rest easily knowing that their basement has been securely waterproofed. If your home could use the same treatment, call The Basement Guys® today and schedule a free estimate appointment.
One Cleveland, Ohio homeowner grew concerned after noticing saggy spots on his kitchen floor. After checking the support joists below and discovering that the support beams were starting to fail, he called The Basement Guys® to handle the next steps.
Floor joists are horizontal beams placed across the ceiling of a basement or crawl space to frame the open space and provide support to the floors above. Usually, metal or concrete support beams are installed to brace against these joists, but over time these can settle, shift or rot.
Once we conducted a walkthrough, our team recommended replacing the metal beams that were in place with a new set of reinforced SmartJack® supports. This two-piece system consists of an adjustable jack at the head and a heavy galvanized steel support beam below to provide a stable brace. After installing the SmartJack® system, we adjusted the jacks to slowly and steadily raise the floor joists back to their proper positions.
If you'd like to see if the SmartJack® system can reinforce your foundation and level your floors, call The Basement Guys® today and schedule a free estimate.
Homeowners in Middleburg Heights, Ohio found several small cracks forming in the foundation walls of their basement. This is a common occurrence, as extreme pressure from outside soil and water can cause these walls to bend, bow or buckle. While a small crack may not seem like a big deal, over time, these can expand and lead to structural weakness in the walls. Leaks, floods and even total wall failure may happen if the walls have no support in resisting this pressure. With that in mind, the homeowners called The Basement Guys®.
Our team braced the afflicted portion of the foundation wall with powerful CarbonArmor® carbon fiber support straps. These thin, lightweight yet durable strips are attached to the wall with a powerful epoxy resin to ensure solid support. Carbon fiber is as many as ten times stronger in tension than steel, which means the walls will stand up to even extreme pressure.
CarbonArmor® installation is fast and easy, as it requires no exterior excavation and the low-profile design doesn't impact future basement finishing projects. If you'd like to know more about foundation repair using the CarbonArmor® system, call The Basement Guys® today and schedule a free estimate.
Homeowners in Parma, Ohio were interested in converting their basement into a multi-use space, including a spare bedroom, office and storage room. Before work could begin on this extensive finishing project, they wanted to shore up the waterproofing capabilities of the basement, so they called The Basement Guys®. After conducting our free consultation, we recommended our CleanSpace® wall system.
This durable, washable plastic vapor barrier is attached to the basement walls with drilled fasteners, ensuring a snug and secure fit. Once attached, CleanSpace® sheeting provides total waterproof protection from cracks, moisture buildup and other common causes of water intrusion. Additionally, the anti-microbial UltraFresh protection provides another layer of security from mold and mildew buildup.
The crisp white finish of CleanSpace® walls make for a clean look in your basement, amplifying the power of your existing lighting to create a bright and brilliant space.

Homeowners in Cleveland, Ohio were dismayed to discover that their finished basement had flooded. While they managed to take care of the worst of the water damage themselves, they needed help from The Basement Guys® to make sure it never happened again. After a walkthrough, our team recommended a new underground drainage system and a powerful sump pump system to ensure quick, reliable water removal.
Installation of the WaterGuard® French drain system was fast and easy. Our crew dug a small trench around the perimeter walls of the basement and set up the pipeline just above the foundation footing. By setting the drainage system underneath the floor, the WaterGuard® system provides efficient drainage without disrupting the layout of the basement. Once the system was in place, we restored the concrete above the drain.
After installing new drains, the basement needed a powerful pump system for fast and efficient water removal. We hooked the WaterGuard® pipeline up to a new SuperSump® sump pump system. Capable of pumping over 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of your basement, this sump pump keeps basements dry even during heavy water intrusion incidents.
If you're looking to safeguard your finished basement from flooding or leaking, call The Basement Guys® today for a free basement waterproofing estimate.
A homeowner in Brooklyn, Ohio began to notice some issues with the moisture level in his basement. Although the walls had not begun to noticeably crack or bow, there were signs of mold growth and a dank, musty atmosphere that made the area unpleasant. He called The Basement Guys® for a second opinion.
After a thorough inspection, our team recommended a few simple fixes to improve the watertight seal in his basement. First, we dug out space below the perimeter walls to install WeatherGuard® drainpipes. These French drains rest atop the foundation footing, safely out of the "mud zone," where clogs are common.
Once the new drainage system was in place, we hooked it up to a SuperSump® sump pump system for easy water removal. These state-of-the-art cast iron pump systems include powerful Zoeller® pumps capable of removing up to 2,220 gallons of water out of your basement per hour.
Finally, our team addressed the mold issues by lining the basement walls with a CleanSpace® mold-resistant vapor barrier. These durable plastic liners are a simple and effective method for keeping humidity and moisture out.

One homeowner in Cleveland, Ohio began to notice some minor water intrusion in her basement after particularly heavy rain. Rather than wait and let this problem develop into a bigger one, she called The Basement Guys® for help. After reviewing her situation, we recommended a new underground drainage line and sump pump.
Our installation crew arrived and began digging a channel along the perimeter basement wall. Then, we placed WaterGuard® drain pipes underneath the concrete floor. This placement allows the drainage system to stay out of lower-density soil areas where mud accumulates and clogging is common.
