    Ohio Basement Authority had done some work to the house before I bought it. I was so impressed when it came time to do more, you folks were front and foremost on my list. I didn't need to get a price from anyone else. I already knew who I wanted to do the job! Thanks! Top-notch from start to finish.

    Professional from the start. Steve was outstanding in explaining problem and solutions. Another company was here and never gave me an estimate for over a month and a half. They didn't respond to calls to find out what was going on. Not until I put a review on Angie's list, then they called - too late! The crew that did the work was outstanding. Ryan, Nate, and Nick were polite very concerned about the job they did. I can't say enough about how professional and courteous they were!!!! GREAT JOB!!!!

    John was very informative and valued my opinion. His job knowledge was very good, and he provided me with the information to make an informed decision about what type of work and how much was needed. He did not attempt to sell me items that were not needed.

    Customer Testimonial

              I’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority’s television ads, and I chose to work with you because I looked at the reviews online and they seemed very favorable. Francis was extremely patient and answered all our questions. He was very attentive to my parents who are the homeowners. Heather also was extremely friendly and courteous. The installation crew – Ryan, Jamey, and Nate – were extremely hard-working. They were very courteous and took great are to be as neat as possible in their work and their cleanup. They were extremely patient in answering questions and explaining the process. We are extremely pleased with the entire process – from the representative who initially came out, to the installation crew, to the administrative people we had contact with.

    Customer Testimonial

              I have heard Ohio Basement Authority’s radio ads, but I chose to work with the company because every person I spoke with at OBA treated me well. OBA also had the best price. Ryan and guys were great. They explained things to me. They never made me feel out of place as I watched. They worked very hard. I love how well the crew worked together and enjoyed each other. And during all this they totally paid attention to what they were doing. Only time will tell if the piering was completed correctly but for now I feel good about it. I give them an A+ too.

    Customer Testimonial

              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.

    Customer Testimonial

              I have seen Ohio Basement Authority through TV advertising and the BBB website. I chose to work with the company because the information and solution presented to me was cost-effective and superior to other companies. Everyone that I have interacted with has been very polite, helpful and knowledgeable. The inspector evaluated my problem and presented a fair and workable solution. He is very knowledgeable. My first contact with the crew was with a different foreman, even though he was not assigned to my job. He, as well as Ryan and his work partner, handled themselves in a very professional and businesslike manner. Ryan and his work partner arrived at my home at the prearranged time, and everything at the end was so clean, it was like they were never here. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Everyone was easy to communicate with, very conscientious, and good representatives of Ohio Basement Authority.

    Customer Testimonial

              I found your company online, and you were the only company I contacted. I tried to find local people but we seem to be outlanders for a lot of specialty businesses. Travis represented you so that we felt comfortable we would be satisfied with the results. From first contact I was kept in the loop with names and times. Ryan called when he left and gave us an approximate time of arrival. Your crew and the plumbers arrived at the same time and worked very well together to get things started. I could not have been happier. Ryan, Jamey, and Jesus were some of the most professional and courteous workers I have been associated with. Ryan has only been with you two years!? He picks things up very fast. I hung around most of the week getting in the way while he explained every procedure and answered every question I had. When a portion of wall crumbled he took pictures, and after they left for the day he talked to colleagues to find the best solution. We are replacing some of it. Jamey seems very observant and doesn’t need much supervision. He sees what needs done and does it. We have some common friends in this area. I can’t imagine what was going through Jesus’ head. First week on the job!? This is a very physical job and you are working in a stranger’s home. They all worked extremely hard all week and made my wife and me very comfortable having them in our house. I would not hesitate to have them on my team. If all of your crews are as good as ours was, thank your lucky stars. Personable, hard workers. It was kind of sad to see them leave.

              We’ve heard about Ohio Basement Authority through radio and TV ads, and the company also was recommended by our realtor in Delaware County. We chose to work with you because of your quality of service. The inspector was knowledgeable and professional, and we were impressed by the crew! Ryan, Colin and Nate worked as a team! Ryan’s leadership was obvious and respected by the team members. Later, John and Andy arrived to pitch in. Amazing teamwork.

Ryan Toledo from Ohio Basement Authority

Title: Foreman

Ryan Toledo from Ohio Basement Authority

Before coming to Ohio Basement Authority, Ryan worked at a pest control company for six years. He is a good fit for Ohio Basement Authority because he is team-oriented, pays close attention to detail, works hard, and is customer service-driven.

Ryan looks forward to work every day because he is able to fix people’s homes and prevent further damage from occurring. He also likes hands-on work and using and developing his skills.

In his spare time, Ryan enjoys scuba diving, hunting, and training his black lab to hunt water foul.

He came from a big family, and is excited to start his own in the future. This family and his friends say he is hard-working guy who stays positive and always has their back.

When Ryan decides to do something, he takes his time to do it right. Especially with the type of work we do, which takes patience and time to make sure it’s done correctly. The pay-off of living by this rule is completely worth it for him.

  • Crawl Space Encapsulation and Stabilization in New Albany, OH
    Before
    Crawl Space Encapsulation and Stabilization in New Albany, OH
    After

    Homeowners in New Albany, OH, have lived in their house for almost 15 years. Recently, they began to notice that the floors directly above their crawl space felt bouncy and sagging in some spots. They also were concerned with the health of their crawl space, which lacked proper insulation and sealing material.

    The owners knew they could count on Ohio Basement Authority for the right solutions, as they were acquainted with some of our staff. One of our experienced crew foremen, Ryan Toledo, paid the homeowners a visit so he could inspect the condition of the crawl space and its support system. Ryan and the owners then discussed goals for a repair project, and Ryan presented them with some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.

    Foreman Valentin Rosales then worked to complete these projects. Once they removed the failing insulation and any debris from the crawl space, they installed several SmartJacks underneath a new steel supplemental support beam. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel supports permanently stabilize the floor joists and help raise the floor back to level. They also will not rust or corrode. SmartJacks are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

    Drainage matting was then placed on the floor to enhance the strength and durability of the encapsulation material, and SilverGlo insulation panels were placed on the walls. Spray foam insulation also was applied to the band joists. The crawl space was then encapsulated in CleanSpace liner to fully isolate the area from the earth.

    The crawl space is now a safer, healthier and more stable area, which benefits the rest of the house and gives the homeowners peace of mind.
