After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Sunbury, OH, were motivated to address continuous problems in their basement once and for all. Water leaked inside the basement every time it rained, and this leakage seemed to occur in a section that also had walls that were cracking and tilting inward.
The owners plan to live in the house for many years, so having a safe, dry and healthy living environment is important to them. As they began to research how to address these issues, they came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they started browsing through our website as well. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. After they did so, they met with Inspector Zeke Fowler who completed a thorough evaluation of the basement. After discussing his findings with the owners, as well as their goals for repair, Zeke then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.
Foreman Ben O'Bryant and his crew waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain drainage systems. These systems intercept seeping water and direct it to the UltraSump sump pump that was installed to replace the older, failing sump pump system. Equipped with two powerful pumps inside the liner, the UltraSump also features an external backup battery. This battery ensures the system will always operate and work to pump water out of the basement even during power outages. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.
Several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors also were installed on the adjacent cracking, tilting foundation wall. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors permanently stabilize the walls, prevent any further cracking or inward bowing, and offer the best opportunity to straighten the walls because of their unique design.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safe, stable and dry forever home.
