Professional Waterproofing Service

M.L. Scott & Sons has been providing waterproofing services in the Cleveland area for over 100 Years. We have the knowledge and experience to do the job right. 


We use a mini-excavator wherever possible. All lawn areas are protected with plywood and plastic. When the job is complete, we make every attempt to leave your property as undisturbed as possible.


We want our customers to know what the waterproofing process is before we begin working. We have great communication with our customers on the job. Here are the steps in our waterproofing process:
