SEYMOUR, CT - Contractor Nation has launched a new dealership in Columbus, Ohio that will provide basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, and foundation repair services, continuing the company’s growth and strengthening its position as the leading network of home services and home improvement contractors.

Larry Janesky’s Mid-State Basement Systems, an “All Things Basementy” company,will use the same patented products and industry-leading services supplied to other dealers in the Contractor Nation network that have helped establish them as the providers of choice in their respective locations across the United States and Canada.

“We are excited to launch in Columbus and believe there’s a huge opportunity for us to take care of homeowners the right way in the city and surrounding areas,” said Larry Janesky, Contractor Nation Founder and CEO.

Columbus is Ohio’s largest city and one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., according to the Census Bureau. Nearly 900,000 live in the city, with another 1.5 million in the surrounding metropolitan area. The city’s population is expected to continue surging in the coming years.

Under the brand of “All Things Basementy,” Mid-State Basement Systems will provide basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, structural repair, and humidity and mold control services. In the Columbus area, the company is the exclusive provider of patented and award-winning products including the SaniDry Sedona dehumidification system, the Triple Safe sump pump system and the WaterGuard basement waterproofing system.

Since then, the company has significantly expanded and become the state’s dominant provider, performing work in more than 65,000 homes. In 1990, while still running Connecticut Basement Systems, Janesky launched networks for basement waterproofing, crawl space repair, and structural repair. These networks, as well as other companies, have become part of the Contractor Nation network, which is committed to creating even greater success for home improvement and home service businesses across North America.
