Pioneer is a full service basement waterproofing contractor offering all solutions.  Are you confused by the different solutions available?  Many customers tell us they have a few estimates from basement waterproofing contractors and each one is different.  Some say they are not sure how the proposed solutions will fix their problem.  Our inspectors start with identifying what is causing your specific problem.  Next they will offer a clear explanation of the cause and solution options.

Not Every Basement Waterproofing Contractor is Created Equal

Most home basement waterproofing contractors send out trained sales people taught to say the same things in the same order to every person they meet.  And then there are the discount games.  Since no two basements or customers are alike, we approach each situation differently.  No gimmicks, no fancy “super duper” gizmo drains or pumps, just good old fashioned permanent solutions with over 40 years of perfect customer service to back it up!

basement finishing Transform That Unfinished Basement Into The Space Of Your Dreams

Do you need a space for the kids to play and get those toys out of sight?  Maybe you need a home office in the changed work environment.  You may want to finish your basement into a getaway for the grown ups.  Maybe you need another bedroom and full bath for an ever growing family.  Pioneer can add space with egress to the outside to ensure safety and bring in additional natural light and ventilation.  Regardless of the space needs, Pioneer can finish your basement adding valuable living space that blends wit the rest of your home.

Pioneer uses materials that are specifically ideal for basements.  Insulation and framing that will not absorb moisture, rot or mold.  We only use moisture resistant drywall all the way up the walls unlike some basement finishing contractors who use it on the bottom and regular drywall on top half of the walls.

"I was having water issues in my duplex and called Pioneer. They found out that the builder never waterproofed the exterior of the crawl space at all! They gave me a great price, scheduled me in quickly, and did a great job. It's been a couple years now with no water issues. I thought Caleb was especially knowledgeable even though he drives a GM truck. Thanks Pioneer!"

John U., Canton, OH

John U., Canton, OH

"They did a awesome job. When the job was done, you would of never known they worked in your basement because everything was put back in place and it was so clean. Would recommend them to anyone."

Craig N., Canfield, OH

"They started on time (despite delays in other projects because of extremely wet weather earlier in the year), and finished on schedule (a major accomplishment considering the magnitude of the project).  They were organized, professional, knowledgeable in all aspects, and hard working.  They kept me advised of the goals for the day and answered all my questions honestly and respectfully.  They were always on time.  I enjoyed having the crew around. The job was done correctly.  Did it right versus quickly.  At the end of the day they cleaned up any messes and made sure any equipment was not in our way.  At the end of the project they helped put my things back in place in the basement, and cleaned up all debris. They finished the outside by bringing in topsoil and planting grass seed. As the customer they always put me first.  If they had questions they asked rather than assumed.  They made sure I understood what was happening at each step along the way. I highly recommend Pioneer Basement Solutions."

Phyllis L., Akron, OH

"Ron came out to take a look at the issues and patiently talked through the options. I generally don't do well with sales pitches, but there was absolutely no pressure and honestly just felt like he was here to help us solve a problem we connected with them about. All the Pioneer Team was professional and respectful - answered questions through each aspect of the project."

Rose C., Wadsworth, OH

"We hired Pioneer for water proofing our basement. We would recommend them to anyone. Everything went well. We also had them water proof our granddaughter’s house and she was extremely pleased as well. Thank you Angie’s List!"

Suzanne D., Alliance, OH

"Pioneer Basement Solutions has pretty reasonable price and they got the work done very neatly; they did not leave my house in a mess. They are very efficient and I would highly recommend them. Pioneer Basement Solutions also did my dad's basement and we are very happy with them."

James W., North Canton, OH

"Ron was on-time for the job review, checked the basement wall for moisture, thoroughly explained the required work to properly complete the job and showed us the company insurance certificates. The cost was reasonable for the scope of work required, the estimated installation time-frame was also to our satisfaction and Ron did not employ a high pressure sales pitch. We were contacted the week before the job was started to make sure the dates met our schedule. Caleb was the crew leader and the entire crew was on time both days. Caleb reviewed the entire job with us before starting, checked the inside basement wall for the crack locations and any unforeseen utility lines along or within the wall area that was being repaired. Caleb patiently answered my questions during the job so that I could learn the correct procedure to complete this job. The entire crew was friendly and cleaned up the work area upon completion. Caleb went above the job scope by installing topsoil upon completion to make up for the large boulders that they removed from along the basement wall work area. The soil was also thoroughly compacted during the back-fill to help with the settling this coming spring. The completed work area looks as good as before the job was started and they replanted the plants located within the work area with our understanding that they could not guarantee their survival from being disrupted during the cold weather. We are very satisfied with the entire job and strongly recommend this company to anyone needing their services for basement water seepage. This is a professionally run company that does not use high pressure/unnecessary sales techniques and employs a knowledgeable caring work crew with a high work ethic. Thank you Ron, Caleb and crew for a job well done!"

John S., Broadview Heights, OH

“You are fortunate to locate and hire such a nice group of workers that do an excellent job and interact so well together. I will recommend your team to anyone that needs a basement solution. Health and peace to the whole team!!”

Kim and Jonas S., Massillon, OH

“Everyone that worked at our home was very kind and considerate. I was very comfortable leaving everyone at my home and they were very respectful of my home. Thank you for reminding us that there are good hard working companies out there.”

Tammy K., Uniontown, OH

“I thought your whole staff was very courteous, hard workers, and very thorough. I felt comfortable leaving my home unattended while they finished. Thank you for such wonderful service. I will always recommend your company anytime basement waterproofing is needed.”

Kathy M., Canton, OH

“Caleb was so very nice and very informative! He put me at ease because I had other estimates that were [through] the roof and the damage they would have done would have been my responsibility to clean up. Your crew was great all the way around, and yes, I would recommend you!”

Bierne, Fairlawn, OH

"The installation went great. They first removed some built-in shelves that were covering where the drain needed to go in and then they got to work on the drain. They did a good job getting the drain in and then putting concrete back over it and plastic panels over the base of the walls. They also put the sump pump in and tested the drain to the street. We weren’t sure if the drain was clear so this gave us peace of mind. At the end they cleaned everything up completely and gave us a sump pump demonstration. After letting the concrete set for two weeks they came back and reinstalled the shelves, which we appreciated a lot.
The crew was excellent. They have been working with Pioneer for years and know their job well. They did quality work and were good about answering questions and explaining things.
We had been putting off the waterproofing for years because of bad experiences we had heard of in the past, but this went exactly as I wanted. They did excellent work at a fair price. I wish we had gotten the basement waterproofed years ago."

Tim, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

“A neighbor stopped by and asked me who had replaced my basement wall and waterproofed my basement. As I was talking to her about our potential nightmare, I began to realize the impact of what you had done for me and my family. In an age where quality work is often difficult to come by, your company stands head and shoulders above most… Although some companies might have had lower estimates, this proved to be a classic case of getting what we paid for.”

Eric K., Louisville, OH

“It was a great experience. There was no pressure during the initial inspection and estimate. I was given two possible options to fix my problem. They fit me in the schedule quicker than expected when they had a cancellation. The crew showed up and did a great job without any mess.”

John B., Hudson, OH

"Pioneer did an excellent job, controlling all the dust, cleaning the area after the work, hauling all debris away, covering the carpet walkways and solving our problem. We have had several hard rains since and no sign of water anywhere. They were courteous, informative and very professional. We highly recommend them. They guarantee their work."

Matt Z., Alliance, OH

"From the initial visit from Kyle Palmer at Pioneer Basement Solutions to their final thank you note. This company went above and beyond on the project of replacing a basement wall (in December) and replacing a side porch and sidewalk. The on-site crew was beyond professional and communicated all they were doing and always were aware of keeping the inside of the residence clean. In a time where many businesses lack customer service, all you have to do is look to Pioneer Basement Solutions for that first class work and always putting the customer first. And a lifetime warranty transferrable to the new homeowner."

David S., Canton, OH

"Sales to finish, project was excellent."

Randy & Cyndy V., Akron, OH

Chris T., Brunswick, OH

Dave & Amy M., Carrollton, OH

"Best possible experience with a stressful problem. Our crew was so accommodating, they answered all of our questions and explained everything. We were so impressed with their enthusiam and work ethic. I call them "the A team". Thank you!"

Christine V., Atwater, OH

"The work crew was able to move things away from the walls before starting their work since my husband is disabled and I couldn't move things myself. The crew was friendly and easy to work with. Ethan explained each step of the process and answered all of my questions."

John S., Akron, OH

The work crew was very nice and did everything in a professional manner!

William H., Canton, OH

"Everyone was very courteous and happy to answer any questions that we had. We will be happy to recommend your company if the opportunity comes up."

Sharon K., Kent, OH

Rich & Sue H., Canton, OH

Judy H., Wadsworth, OH

"Your staff: Ray, John, John, Ian, and another staff member (I forgot their name) who came out to get the crew going were all awesome. All of them were very friendly and efficient. The job was just completed, but it appears to be an excellent job. It gave me such a good feeling having them do this job. Thank you."

Bill K., Cuyahoga Falls, OH

"As always, great job. Everything was explained completely."

Peggy O. & Steve M., Youngstown, OH

"Very polite, professional, and knowledgeable crew. They cleaned up as they worked as well as when they were done. I would highly recommend your business to anyone in the future. Nice job!"

Rich & Tracy N., Ravenna, OH

Even the inspector was highly impressed with the quality of work performed. You're all top notch to say the least! Excellent from beginning to end! Thank you all for being outstanding! You truly gave us a sound and solid foundation to make a home."
