History of City of Parma:
Parma was originally part of Parma Township
, created on March 7, 1826. The first settlers were the Benaiah Fay family from New York state, who settled along the Cleveland-Columbus Road in 1816. The name was taken from Parma, New York, where it was probably derived from the early 19th century fascination with classical Italy. During the 19th century, Parma remained largely agricultural. In 1912, a portion of the township seceded to form the village of Parma Heights. In the fall of 1924, Parma was incorporated as a village, and in 1926 it adopted the mayor-council form of government. On January 1, 1931, a proposition to annex it to the city of Cleveland was defeated, and Parma became a city. Parma's tremendous growth came after World War II as young families began moving from Cleveland into the suburbs. During the Cold War, Parma's Nike Site Park, now James Day Park, housed Nike missiles located in underground silos. Watch videos from Parma

Basement Waterproofing Contractors and Construction Companies
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.
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

Basement Waterproofing - small jobs
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.
