City of Cleveland Ohio

Cleveland is the second largest city in the U.S. state of Ohio (pop. 500,000) and is the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state. The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location on the lake shore, as well as being connected to numerous canals and railroad lines. Like many of America's older industrial American cities, Cleveland withstood declining prosperity and loss of population in the second half of the 20th century. Recent re-investment in the downtown area (new stadiums for its sports teams, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, shopping arcades) has revitalized the city. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Cleveland's economy has diversified sectors that include manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedical.

History of City of Cleveland:

The Village of Cleaveland was incorporated on December 23, 1814. In spite of the nearby swampy lowlands and harsh winters, its waterfront location proved to be an advantage. The area began rapid growth after the 1832 completion of the Ohio and Erie Canal. This key link between the Ohio River and the Great Lakes connected the city to the Atlantic Ocean via the Erie Canal and later via the St. Lawrence Seaway; and the Gulf of Mexico via the Mississippi River. Growth continued with added railroad links. Cleveland incorporated as a city in 1836.

Greater Cleveland has long been famous as a durable goods manufacturing area. Following the national trend, however, Cleveland has been shifting to a more services-based economy. Greater Cleveland is a world corporate center for leading national and multinational companies in industries ranging from transportation, insurance, retailing, and utilities, to commercial banking and finance.

City of Cleveland Schools:

The Cleveland Metropolitan School District envisions 21st Century Schools of Choice where students will be challenged with a rigorous curriculum that considers the individual learning styles, program preferences and academic capabilities of each student, while utilizing the highest quality professional educators, administrators and support staff available.

Basement Waterproofing Contractors and Construction Companies

Basement Waterproofing

If you own a home and have a subsoil basement then you need to be concerned about basement waterproofing. Basement waterproofing is defined as preventing water from penetrating into your basement area. Basement Waterproofing refers to techniques used to prevent water from entering the basement of a house or other uilding. Effective below ground waterproofing will include both drainage and sealers.


Basement Waterproofing is needed anytime when a structure is built at ground level or below ground. Waterproofing and drainage considerations are especially needed in cases where ground water is likely to build up in the soil and raise the water table. This higher water table causes hydrostatic pressure to be exerted underneath basement floors and against basement walls. Hydrostatic pressure forces water in through cracks in foundation walls, through openings caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint and up through floor cracks. Hydrostatic pressure can cause major structural damage to foundation walls and is likely to contribute to mold, decay and other moisture related problems.
Waterproofing your basement walls is the first step in preventing basement wall leaking. If you are planning on finishing or refinishing your basement, it is a good idea to come up with a basement drainage and basement sealing strategy first. This could include things like French drains, basement floor sealer, sump pump installation for basement water removal and basement foundation waterproofing. Crawl space waterproofing is also an option, but these solutions should only be installed by a certified basement waterproofing contractor.
With Cleveland Bricks And Mortar, you can actually see how your wet basement will be transformed into a bright, clean, comfortable, and of course DRY, healthy and usable space.
From poured concrete foundations to monolithic, stone, block or tile basement walls, no basement is safe from water leaking through the basement walls, floor, and floor joist and then entering into your home.

Basement Waterproofing - Solving Wet, Damp, Moldy, Mildewed Floors & Walls

Basements seep or leak because water has its own way. Your house may have had proper drainage once upon a time, but the underground pipes became clogged or collapsed. Many times the slope of the land is improper. Sometimes, there is an underground water flow that was never detected, and that can't reasonably be changed. In all cases, the exterior wall needs to be dug up and sealed from the outside. On simpler jobs, where this is all that is required, we can expertly and economically make your basement dry again so you can have a rec room or storage..

Basement Waterproofing - big jobs

Sometimes basement waterproofing is a bigger job than you might expect -- the drainage pipes below the foundation may need to be dug out, or the yard may need to be re-contoured. And sometimes the continued water seepage has eroded the structural integrity of the wall itself, and the wall must be rebuilt. We recently replaced three basement walls for a large ranch home in Rocky River. Ranches have very large basements and long walls.

To do this job, we employed an engineer and a house mover to jack up and brace the house as we demolished and replaced each of the three walls, one at a time. To protect the integrity and security of the home, we built a temporary construction-grade wood wall, complete with locking door, a few feet outside of the existing wall so the workmen could get in and out with wheel barrows and other equipment, and so the home could be secured.

It takes experience and skill to to this, but whatever your special needs might be, we've probably done it before, and will do it properly for you.
