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.

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.”
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.
