They wanted 3 weeks to come out and quote. Then when they learned that I would be working in another state they refused to come to the house and work with my wife. Since my wife and I both own the house they require us both present. NOT a law, just company policy. If signatures would be required prior to work being completed then I could have easily done that. Instead I will work with another comp...

Technician arrived on time, did the work quickly. He re-cemented the area so it was all smooth like the original. Have not had any problems with moisture in the basement because of this company.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Basement waterproofing has been under warranty with Ohio Waterproofing for years. They came to do the annual inspection and told us that they needed to open the system, notch the footer, pipe, and re-cement. They also installed a new sump pump.

The crew were on time every day. They took the time, at the end of the day, to show us what they had accomplished that day. They were very polite and courteous to us and our house. The crew spent time every day cleaning up any messes that were made. At the end of the week we were very happy with everyone that had a part in getting this project complete.

They excavated between 6 inches and 2 feet along the entire interior perimeter, and between 3 and 5 feet down on the entire exterior perimeter. He was uncomfortable going all the way down the exterior because of the condition of the block (hence the "combination"). The crew was about 5 guys per day for 5 days. They were all extremely polite, punctual, and clean. They really did do everything by ha...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
"Combination" basement waterproofing. I have a red block foundation which is typical for a 1920's Lakewood home. He classified the condition of my basement walls as stage 3 deterioration, stage 4 being the worst and likely needing replacement. During rain events water would visibly seep through and down the walls, but there was no bowing.

Hardcore sales people! May 13, 2017, I signed an estimate for foundation and waterproofing the basement with a very nice salesperson. This was a Saturday. After consulting with family members and others who were knowledgeable about this company history and checked out the reviews online, I decided it will be necessary to cancel. I canceled my check immediately and called Ohio State Waterproofing. ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Basement waterproofing and foundation work. Given two estimates. They would not be able to start until September, but I gave them a deposit of $500.00, which they do not consider valid for cancellation even though it was within the three-day limit. They don't accept phone cancellations - only scheduled in-person appointments.

My parents are both elderly and they had a basement leak that required major work back in 2008 from Ohio State Waterproofing. Just recently- 9 years later (long time), the pump that was installed failed. I was worried that OSW would not take care of the problem since being over 9 years later and just push the problem aside. Was I wrong!! What a fantastic company! I told them that my parents are el...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
My parents had their foundation leak repaired needing the outside foundation dug up and repaired and a sump pump w/battery back -up installed to keep future basement leaking problem from happening. The work was performed in April 2008.

That was actually covered by the warranty the prior owners had, so we didn't have to pay anything. I wouldn't have chosen that type of waterproofing, if I had to choose it, but for what they were asked to do, I'd say an A. It was completed timely and we have not had any issues since then. They did honor the warranty.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The previous owner of the house had them put in a waterproofing system. We had them come out and add that system to a part of the house that was not covered.
