              We’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority’s ads on Channel 10, and we chose to work with the company because no one else seemed interested in helping us solve our issue with water coming into our home. The office staff got the ball rolling, and Dave was excellent in laying out our options. I received several calls from the foreman about when they would arrive from a morning job. He was great, and the crew could not have been better. They were very efficient.

              My step-son worked for Ohio Basement Authority, and I chose to work with the company because of the cost and friendliness of Dave. Dave Wirtz was more than helpful. He did a great job explaining exactly what needed to be done. There was an issue with the date that the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were scheduled for. I called and spoke with Dave, and he said it would get worked out and that someone would be there to install it. Don’t you know, Dave himself and Ryan came out and put the wall anchors in on a Saturday! I was more than pleased that he did that for me.

    Fixing and Protecting Cracking, Tilting Walls in Pataskala, OH, With Carbon Fiber Supports

    After living in their house for 18 years, homeowners in Pataskala, OH, started to notice some issues in their basement. One of the walls was cracking and appeared to be slightly tilting inward.

    The owners didn’t want these problems to worsen to the point of serious damage, so they began to research how to best address these issues. They came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website, and they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with Inspector Dave Wirtz who evaluated the condition of the wall. Dave then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

    Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then installed several Carbon Fiber supports along this wall. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to reinforce it and stabilize it in its current position. These strong supports also prevent any further cracking or inward bowing on the wall. These supports may not appear aesthetically pleasing, but they can easily be concealed with paint or other basement finishing materials.

    The owners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy solution has helped ensure the safety and structural integrity of their home.

    Properly Sealing a Crawl Space in Pickerington, OH

    After living in his house for more than 20 years, a homeowner in Pickerington, OH, was preparing to sell the home. But he knew he needed to address some issues in the basement including past water intrusion.

    The owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after hearing about our company and our services. He met with Inspector Dave Wirtz, who completed a thorough evaluation of the home. During his inspection, Dave also pointed out an unsightly and unhealthy partial crawl space adjacent to the basement. Dave then presented the owner with some of our reliable basement waterproofing and crawl space repair solutions.

    Foreman Valentin Rosales and his crew removed the debris and failing liner from the crawl space, placed durability-enhancing drainage matting on the crawl space floor, and then encapsulated this area in CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace is a thick and durable liner similar to swimming pool liner. It completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. CleanSpace is 100% waterproof, and has been treated with an anti-microbial coating to prevent mold and mildew build-up. CleanSpace also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space.

    The basement also was waterproofed with the sub-floor WaterGuard interior drainage system, UltraSump sump pump, and exterior IceGuard attachment.

    The previous owner and new homeowner both are pleased these trustworthy solutions were installed to help ensure the health and safety of the home.

    Reinforcing a Failing Retaining Wall in Westerville, OH

    During the last several years, homeowners in Westerville, OH, have been monitoring a potential structural issue outside their home. They noticed a retaining wall outside their basement walk-out was beginning to fail. It was cracking and slightly tilting inward.

    The homeowners were not only concerned about their safety, but how these issues could affect the future resale of their house. They were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads. After meeting with one of our inspectors, the homeowners were equally excited for one of our crews to fix these problems for good.

    First, the crew excavated the earth outside the retaining wall down to the wall’s footer. The wall was then pushed back to as plumb as possible. Then, two Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed to further straighten and stabilize the retaining wall. Wall Anchor Covers were placed over the visible anchor plates to conceal them, and all cracks were repaired and filled.

    The homeowners are pleased this reliable repair solution has helped enhance the safety and appearance of their home.

    Crawl Space Encapsulation with CleanSpace Creates Healthier Storage Area in Powell, OH

    During the three years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Powell, OH, have used the partial crawl space just off of the basement for storage. They recently began to notice it felt damp in the crawl space. The area also lacked proper lining to cover the gravel floor, and some of the insulation was starting to fall from the walls.

    The homeowners wanted to have a healthier area to store their belongings, and they wanted to ensure the health of the crawl space and home for when they choose to sell the house.

    They started to research how to best address these issues, and then they were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. They met with one of our inspectors who presented them with the perfect permanent solution.

    One of our expert crews then encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CleanSpace is thick and durable. It seals the crawl space from the earth, prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and helps insulate the crawl space. It is tough enough to crawl on, and its durability is enhance by the thick drainage matting that was placed underneath it on the crawl space floor.

    The homeowners are happy to now have a healthier crawl space and home because of this reliable repair solution.
