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.
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.
