Searching for a basement waterproofing contractor in Ohio
Searching for a basement waterproofing contractor in Ohio can be challenging as the industry has a track record of some unscrupulous characters.
The obvious first place to look is length of time in business. Be careful though to look closely as many a basement waterproofing contractor have used lines like “years experience”. If you see “years experience it may be a red flag that the company hasn’t been in business for very long. It is common for new companies to add up the years of experience of the employees in an industry and post “100 years experience” in order to look impressive.

Look to see if the basement waterproofing contractor offers more than one approach to basement waterproofing. Many contractors only sell one solution instead of offering several basement waterproofing systems but again, this can be tricky to determine. There are polished companies out there with presentations that will lead you to believe they do all types of waterproofing; however, they will walk you down a path to get you to logically choose the one solution that they actually install. A dead giveaway for this approach would be the word “patented” or “trademark” or something that no one else supposedly can do. You can bet that all of their customers end up buying that patented system.
If you have ever had a home improvement sales person in your home before then you are likely dreading the dog and pony show and the “close” at the end. If the basement waterproofing contractor sends out a sales person trained on how to sell their system, try to get them off of the presentation. If they get lost or confused or insist they stick to their presentation you can bet they are working a strategy to get you to say yes on the spot. Look for a company that sends out an inspector who knows more than just how to sell waterproofing, look for someone who understands all options and construction techniques to get the best possible consultation.
If there are “today only” discounts…well enough said. That ship has sailed years ago, no one believes those scams anymore. But just in case you haven’t heard about the biggest one…watch out for the “flex” or “stand by” type of close where you agree to be on call for install date to fill in the gaps that open up in their schedule. Malarkey.
