After living in their house for a few months, homeowners in Reynoldsburg, OH, had grown tired of the ugly and unhealthy partial crawl space adjacent to their basement. They stored some items along the edge of the crawl space, but they were quickly realizing this was not a suitable storage area in its current condition.
The crawl space was not properly sealed or insulated. The existing insulation was failing and drooping from the walls, and the homeowners were concerned mold could potentially be growing on the insulation. This would only aggravate their allergies and affect their wellbeing.
The homeowners wanted to address this problem once and for all. They were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online. They met with Inspector Jeff Floit, and Jeff assessed the condition of the crawl space. He then recommended the perfect solution to transform the crawl space’s appearance and health.
One of our crews first took great care to remove the nasty insulation and other debris from the crawl space. The crawl space was then encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, the thick and durable CleanSpace liner fully seals the crawl space from the earth. CleanSpace also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable solution has helped them create a healthy and functional crawl space, as well as a healthier forever home.
She has lived in her house for a little more than one year, but a homeowner in New Albany, OH, recently started to become concerned with her interior waterproofing system. She wondered if the sump pump was working correctly, as it was making a lot of noise.
The sump pump system is located in a closet in the finished basement, so it’s easy to keep it out of sight and out of mind. But the homeowner wanted to make sure her finished basement would be protected from flooding or other issues.
The owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads, and she met with Inspector Jeff Floit. Jeff assessed the condition of the sump pump, and he noticed it looked outdated and inefficient. A failing sump pump, even if it has a backup battery, can lead to the problems the homeowner wanted to avoid. Jeff suggested the homeowner upgrade her sump pump to one of our reliable systems.
Foreman Milton Castro and his crew removed the older system and replaced it with the UltraSump Battery Backup System.
The UltraSump features two powerful pumps inside the liner, as well as an external backup battery to ensure the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement. We installed the UltraSump inside the larger TripleSafe liner to allow for easy future upgrades.
The homeowner is pleased to have an updated sump pump system that will keep her home dry.
Homeowners in Westerville, OH, were alarmed when they noticed evidence of water intrusion in their basement. But they knew they could count on Ohio Basement Authority for a reliable solution. They previously worked with us for a project to reinforce their cracking, tilting foundation walls.
The owners were again eager to contact us, and they met with Inspector Jeff Floit. Jeff then completed a thorough assessment of the leaking basement, and he recommended some of our reliable waterproofing solutions.
Forman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system, UltraSump sump pump, and IceGuard attachment.
WaterGuard is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footer in order to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water collected by WaterGuard is then directed to the UltraSump. The UltraSump system features two powerful pumps inside the liner, along with an external backup battery. The latter ensures the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement, even during power outages. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding if the line should freeze or become blocked.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy repairs are protecting their home.
While they have lived in their house for more than 20 years, it wasn’t until recently that these homeowners in London, OH, began to notice glaring problems in their basement. During constant heavy summertime storms, water leaked into the basement and ended up flooding the home with a few feet of water. That is a significant amount of water anyway, but it also was obvious that the existing sump pump system was failing and could not keep up with the seeping water.
The owners wanted to address these issues right away so they wouldn’t have to worry about cleaning up from another flood. As they researched potential repairs and companies to complete the work, the owners found information about Ohio Basement Authority on Home Advisor. They were eager to contact us to meet with one of our inspectors and learn more about how we could help them.
Inspector Jeff Floit completed a thorough evaluation of the basement, and then he recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions that would give them peace of mind and a dry basement.
Foreman Jose de Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then waterproofed the basement with products including the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain drainage systems, TripleSafe sump pump, CleanSpace Wall System, and exterior IceGuard attachment.
WaterGuard is designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. Additionally, a section of TrenchDrain was placed in the floor in front of the basement’s walk-out access. Any water intercepted by the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain systems is then directed to the TripleSafe sump pump. Equipped with three powerful pumps inside a large liner, the TripleSafe also has an external backup battery. All of these features ensure the TripleSafe will always operate to pump water out of the basement. IceGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding.
The stone walls in the basement also were covered with CleanSpace. This liner is typically used to encapsulate crawl spaces, but it has other practical uses as well. Along with concealing the stone walls, the water-resistant CleanSpace liner also helps direct any seeping water from the walls down to the WaterGuard system.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer living environment.
When they moved into their house several years ago, homeowners in New Carlislie, OH, planned to live there for many years. That is why maintaining a safe and healthy living environment is important to the homeowners.
They recently began to notice water seeping inside one particular corner of the basement every time it rained. This resulted in puddles on the floor and visible damage to the walls and floor in that corner. It also was obvious the existing sump pump system was failing to keep up with this seeping water.
The homeowners would like to eventually finish the entire basement, so they wanted to have these problems fixed before any damage occurred. They came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website while researching potential repairs, and they were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with Inspector Jeff Floit who evaluated the condition of the problematic basement corner and then presented them with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our crews then installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system around the basement’s perimeter. This system sits in the sub-floor and will intercept any leaking water from the walls and floor. The water is then directed to a more reliable and efficient sump pump we installed to replace the failing system.
The TripleSafe system we installed features three powerful pumps inside the liner, as well as an external backup battery. This battery ensures the system will continue to work to pump seeping water out of the basement even during power outages. Additionally, we attached two IceGuards to the exterior sump pump discharge lines.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable system will keep their basement dry.
