After living in his house for four years, a homeowner in Waverly, OH, was preparing to sell his home. Before doing so, he wanted to complete various repair projects around the house. This included addressing the exterior crawl space access.
The current metal crawl space door had begun to fail and continued to fall off. This is not ideal for the safety of the home or the health and condition of the crawl space.
The homeowner began to research how to address this problem, and he found information about Ohio Basement Authority online. He was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. He met with Inspector John Becker Sr. who evaluated the crawl space access. John then recommended the perfect product to upgrade the door.
Foreman Martimiano Alonso and his crew then removed the older crawl space door and replaced it with the EverLast Door. Unlike the failing metal door, the EverLast door is made of durable plastic that will not rus. This durable plastic door will never rust or rot. The door is secured to the side of the home with sturdy knobs that allow for easy access and ensure a tight seal for many years to come.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing this replacement door will enhance the safety of the house for the next owners.
A homeowner in Columbus, OH, has lived in her house for almost 30 years. Recently, however, she noticed evidence of water intrusion in the partial crawl space adjacent to the basement. She didn’t want this to turn into bigger problems, so she wanted to address this issue right away.
She previously worked with Ohio Basement Authority for a foundation stabilization project, and she knew she could again count on us to assist with the crawl space. Inspector Travis Burkart completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space, and he recommended several reliable repair solutions.
Foreman Martimiano Alonso and his crew then worked to transform the crawl space with several projects. The crawl space was waterproofed with the SmartPipe drainage system that was placed in the floor to accept seeping water. This water is then directed to the SuperSump system to be pumped out of the basement. An IceGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.
SilverGlo panels were placed on the crawl space walls to insulate the area, and the crawl space was then encapsulated with CleanSpace. This thick, durable liner completely seals the crawl space, isolating it from the earth. CleanSpace also is a moisture and vapor barrier.
The owner now has peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped her create a safer and healthier forever home.
After years of avoiding undertaking a vital home repair project, longtime homeowners in Columbus, OH, were motivated to seek assistance in addressing a lingering problem once and for all. For years, one of their foundation walls was cracking, and it also appeared to be tilting inward. These are common signs of foundation failure that the owners knew they could not continue to ignore.
As the homeowners researched potential repair solutions, they came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website and they were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with Inspector John Becker Sr. who completed a thorough evaluation of the home and its problematic foundation wall. John discussed his findings with the owners, as well as their goals of permanently stabilizing the wall and putting an end to the cracking. John recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions that does just that.
Foreman Martimiano Alonso and his crew then fixed and protected the foundation wall with several Carbon Fiber supports. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to permanently reinforce it and hold it in its current position, as well as prevent any further cracking or inward bowing.
The wall now has been permanently stabilized, giving the owners peace of mind and a structurally stable home.
