Basement Waterproofing in Youngstown

Water seepage, dampness, and musty odors are just some of the warning signs that you need basement waterproofing solutions. Even though these issues are common, they can lead to mold growth, flooding, and structural damage. Causes of a damp basement include the type of clay underneath many homes in Youngstown, as well as the amount of rain and snow we receive in this part of the world. Ohio Basement Authority can keep your basement dry with interior drainssump pumpsdehumidifiers, and wall vapor barriers.

External forces like Youngstown’s soil and adverse weather — we experience 38 inches of rain and 40 inches of snow every year! — can impact your property’s structural integrity. Other factors like eroding silt, expanding clay, and tree roots can also affect your foundation. Wall anchorshelical pierscrawl space supports, and other solutions from Ohio Basement Authority can help.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Youngstown

Crawl spaces aren’t very common in Youngstown. However, this area can pose all kinds of problems, allowing water, humidity, and pests to enter your home through open vents. That leads to moldrotting wood, sagging floors, musty smells, and high energy bills. The best way to protect your crawl space is with our repair and encapsulation solutions, such as sump pumpsvapor barriersdehumidifiers, insulation, drainage, vent covers, and support posts

Concrete Lifting & Leveling in Youngstown

Concrete areas on your property are vulnerable to Youngstown’s eroding silty soils and precipitation. For example, clay in the soil can damage concrete when exposed to rain and snow, leading to cracking and uneven concrete slabs in your drivewaysidewalkpool deck, and patio. Instead of traditional mud jacking, Ohio Basement Authority uses the latest concrete lifting and leveling methods. For example, our polyurethane foam injections can support slabs and underlying soil while restoring damaged concrete.

Basement Finishing

Wood studs, plywood, and other traditional materials can attract moisture to your basement, causing long-lasting damage. We only use the highest-quality basement-ready products when finishing your downstairs space, providing peace of mind. Whether you want to turn your basement into a living area, extra bedroom, bar, pool room, gym, or even recording studio, our team of professional finishing experts has your back. Our design options include lighting, wall panels, windows, and ceiling tiles.

Basement wall waterproofing should be performed before starting the finishing process. This preventative measure protects against moisture seepage, mold, mildew, and wood rot, ensuring your basement remains permanently dry and healthy.

Several intricate steps, including moisture testing, wall insulation installation, framing, and electrical wiring must be followed to ensure a safe and permanent outcome. Contact a basement finishing expert for a free inspection before beginning the process to ensure proper planning for your project.
