Title: Inspector

Zeke Fowler from Ohio Basement Authority

Zeke is an inspector at Ohio Basement Authority. Before joining our team, he worked In the construction industry for 10 years, so he is very experienced. He is a great fit for the company because he strives to keep a positive attitude and attract quality outcomes in his daily activities. He also is very honest and straightforward.

Every day, Zeke looks forward to the opportunities that will help him make the biggest difference in the life of his family. He also wants to help people identify the problems in their homes, and permanently and affordably fix these problems.

Outside of work, Zeke enjoys golfing, playing water sports like kayaking and whitewater rafting, and participating in poker tournaments. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, who keep him focused on working toward a healthy lifestyle.

Zeke is calm, persuasive, and optimistic. He said that a manager he had right out of high school gave him a book called One Minute Manager just before giving him a promotion. From this book, he learned his favorite methods of behavior modification. “Quite simply, catch someone doing something right. Be specific and congratulate them. Once you’ve done this, you can more easily identify a behavior that needs to be altered while keeping a positive mood, which often leads to a successful outcome.”

              I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of Zeke Fowler and his honesty. He was very detailed and customer driven based on my needs. The installation crew called me twice to update me on arrival time. They were outstanding at explaining what they were going to do, and even saved me some money on the system. I had a positive experience with Zeke and the installation crew of David and Marcus.

              Everyone I’ve communicated with was inviting and ready with information. Zeke was patient, informed, thorough and professional. Then the crew – Jose, Jose, and Angel – were prompt and dedicated to the task. The crew was courteous all the time! They constantly asked if I had any questions and walked me through the process for the two days they were here. Their cleanup was immensely satisfactory! I figured I’d have debris and such, but there was none. I’m extremely satisfied with the entire engagement, and I wouldn’t take my business anywhere else.

    Customer Testimonial

              We chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the price, and there were no high pressure sales. Zeke Fowler was very informative and helpful. Zeke answered all of our questions and even invited us to his home so that we could see his basement that was done by OBA. Martin and Josue are two very hard workers. We can't say enough about them. They were very courteous and very helpful if I had any questions or concerns during the project, and the cleanup was better than before the project started. Martin is a great crew leader. Martin was always smiling and laughing. You can tell he enjoys his job and takes pride in what he does. Josue is a work horse! Give that man a raise. Lol Zeke Fowler put us at ease before, during and after the project. If I had any questions or concerns Zeke was always prompt at getting back to me to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.

              I read about your company online, and I have seen your trucks on the road. Zeke was very thorough in explaining your products and listened to what we wanted to accomplish. We then chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the time Zeke took to check out our crawl space and offer solutions for our problems. We also liked the fact that you offered insulation as well as encapsulating the crawl space. Valentin, Oscar and Jesus were very courteous and careful, and we are very pleased with their work. They actually were able to start early and finished before the scheduled date. It was a great experience. Our dingy old crawl space now looks clean and bright.

    Customer Testimonial

              Ohio Basement Authority is a just a well-known name in the central Ohio area (TV, ads, flyers, word of mouth, etc.). We chose to work with the company because of the price, positive reviews and friendly staff. We never felt that the staff was “too pushy” when we contacted them for the estimate. We worked with Zeke Fowler, and he was absolutely great to work with. We had to delay our project by several months from the initial visit and make alterations to it, and he was very courteous and patient in helping us find the right solution for our home. We will absolutely work with him again on the next phase of our project. Milton Castro was the crew foreman and he had two other employees with him all day. They were very timely, informative, friendly, and professional. They left the house in better condition than it was when they started! I’ve joked that the two sealed crawl spaces are now the nicest parts of our home! This was overall a very positive experience with Ohio Basement Authority.

              We’ve seen your TV commercials, and Ken Sperry of Thompson Builders referred us. We chose to work with you because of Ken’s explanation of how you could reinforce our walls. Zeke Fowler was the representative who inspected our basement walls. He was very detailed and he explained the findings, materials, installation process, price and timeline of completion. All of our questions were addressed. Valentin, Jesus, and Arturo were very respectful and organized, and their cleanup was impeccable. Gail is unable to go to the basement, and she was shown photos and given updates. We would be pleased to work with them again.

              In my area, your company’s name was the only one that did residential services.

    Sump Pump Upgrade and Other Installations Will Protect a Problematic Basement in Sunbury, OH

    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.

    Crawl Space Transformation in Upper Arlington, OH

    A homeowner in Upper Arlington, OH, around suburban Columbus, wanted to make sure her family would have a safe and healthy living environment. Starting from the ground and working her way up, the owner wanted to tackle various repair projects. One involved addressing the out of sight, out of mind crawl space. This area was unsightly and unhealthy, and was affecting the above living environment.

    The owner started to research repair options, and she found information about Ohio Basement Authority online. She then met with Inspector Zeke Fowler who completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. Zeke then recommended the perfect repairs to transform this area under the house.

    Foreman Milton Castro and his crew waterproofed the crawl space with the SmartPipe drainage system. This system was directed to tie into the existing sump pump system in the basement to help keep the crawl space dry. Drainage matting was placed on the crawl space floor to help direct water to the perimeter SmartPipe system, as well as enhance the durability of the encapsulation material.

    The crawl space was then insulated with SilverGlo panels that were placed on the walls, and encapsulated with CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth.

    A section of failing floor joists that contributed to above floor sagging was shored up with a supplemental support beam and SmartJacks underneath. 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. They are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

    The owner is happy to have a safer and healthier home because of these trustworthy repairs.
