              Danny Pease was on time and professional. He gave me a written estimate and answered my many follow-up questions promptly and respectfully. Joe called while en route, and arrived promptly. Joe and his guys were very friendly and easy to work with. Joe and I had several discussions throughout the two-day process. He was very good about making sure I understood what he intended to do, and that his intentions would meet my expectations. The work site was kept orderly and clean throughout the project. There were significant steps taken to minimize the mess as work progressed. Clean-up was very satisfactory as a result. Entering into a project like this with a contractor that I had little knowledge of beforehand was a little scary. At the end of the day, Ohio Basement Authority exceeded my expectations. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Customer Testimonial

              We’ve seen your TV ads, and we Googled on the Internet for repair people in our area. Yours and another company came up. After reviewing each one and the comments made, we decided you were the preferred company. Joe did an excellent job of showing and telling us exactly what would be done. I am impressed and grateful for the updates closer to the date of service. I found the workers courteous and answered any questions we had with regard to what they were doing. I was impressed that the young man removed the flowers I didn't think would need to be moved and replanted them afterward, even though I told him he didn't need to do so. This was an interesting process to watch. We live in condos and I told my neighbors about what we were having done. One has already called and talked with Joe. Others may follow since all the porches have settled away from the units.

    Kamal K. of Columbus, OH

    Customer Testimonial

              One stormy Wednesday around 8:30 p.m., Kamal K. found himself living one of worst nightmares any homeowner can have: he was in the basement of his Columbus, OH home with water up to his knees and rising. Desperate, he remembered having a business card in his pocket. It was Doug Secrest’s card. Doug is the owner of Ohio Basement Authority. Kamal had an appointment scheduled in two weeks with the company for an estimate, but given the circumstances, he didn’t think he could wait that long. So he took a chance and called Doug, and explained the situation. Forty-five minutes later, Joe Stuber, a team supervisor for Ohio Basement Authority, was knocking on Kamal’s door. Under pouring rain, Joe Stuber inspected the exterior of the house, located the source of the problem, dug to expose a broken piece of pipe, and temporarily fixed the problem using spare materials he had in his truck. That helped stop the major leak, but Joe warned Kamal that it would be only a temporary fix – and explained what needed to be done in order to solve the problem for good. A few weeks later, Ohio Basement Authority came back to install a full exterior perimeter drainage system – a job once again performed under torrential downpours. The basement in Kamal’s home has been dry ever since, and he is so happy with the results and so impressed with the company, he’s been recommending Ohio Basement Authority to everyone he knows might need a waterproofed basement.

              I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the staff and the quick response. Other companies I called said they could come give me an estimate at the end of July! Your company also matched one of my price quotes, as well. I was very happy. The inspector I met with did a great job! He took the time to answer all my questions and explained everything to me. Joe and the installation crew were on time, and they were very friendly, courteous, and respectful. Nice guys! They did a great job, and left it better than how I had it. You should be proud of your entire staff! Everyone was very professional, courteous and helpful; from start to finish, with the first phone call, the estimate process, and the actual repair. I can’t say enough about your company and your staff. I have already told a few of my neighbors about how pleased I was with this process from start to finish. I will use Ohio Basement Authority in the future if need be!

    Stabilizing Cracking, Tilting Walls with Carbon Fiber Supports in Ontario, OH

    They have lived in their house for 14 years, but homeowners in Ontario, OH, just noticed some significant changes in their foundation walls within the last year. Several areas of the walls were cracking and appeared to be tilting inward. These issues, which are signs of foundation failure, were only worsening over time.

    Motivated to find the best permanent solution, the homeowners began to research repair options. After they found Ohio Basement Authority’s website, they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who completed a thorough evaluation of the home. Jacob then presented the owners with one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

    One of our crews, led by Joe Stuber, then permanently stabilized the problematic foundation walls by installing several Carbon Fiber supports. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the walls to hold them in their current positions, as well as prevent any further cracking and inward bowing. The low profile of these straps allows them to easily be concealed with paint or other basement finishing materials. Any cracks along the walls also were filled and repaired.

    The homeowners are pleased to now have a safe and stable forever home because of this repair project.

    Cracking, Bowing Foundation Walls in Columbus, OH, are Corrected by Wall Anchors and Carbon Fiber

    Homeowners in Columbus, OH, may decide to sell their house in the future, so they wanted to take proactive steps to ensure its structural integrity and resale value.

    The owners have lived in the house more than 30 years, and during that time they have noticed issues such as foundation wall cracking and bowing starting to get worse.

    These are common signs of foundation wall failure, most often caused by hydrostatic pressure. As the soil outside the foundation walls expands from saturation, it exerts pressure on the walls. This constant force then causes the walls to fail.

    Hoping to find a permanent solution, the owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through home repair resources like Home Advisor. We then installed some of our reliable foundation repair products.

    Five Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed on the problematic south foundation wall. This wall had significant gaps between the cracking blocks, but the sturdy wall anchors corrected this. Not only do these galvanized steel anchors permanently stabilize the wall, they offer the best opportunity to straighten it. Their unique design allows them to be tightened at intervals for wall improvement.

    Six Carbon Fiber supports were installed on the east foundation wall that was also cracking and bowing, but not as severely as the south wall. These heavy-duty supports also permanently reinforce the wall and prevent further cracking and inward bowing. They can easily be concealed by paint, drywall or paneling.

    The owners now have peace of mind knowing the home will be structurally sound not only for themselves, but for future homeowners for many years to come.

    Wall Anchors Stabilize a Failing Foundation Wall in Columbus, OH

    After living in their house for 20 years, a cracking and bowing foundation wall was beginning to concern homeowners in Columbus, OH. The block pilaster also showed signs of movement as the wall was bowing inward. The are dangerous signs of wall failure that will only continue to worsen over time, and the homeowners were ready to address them once and for all.

    The owners did their research and obtained repair estimates from a variety of companies. But they were most impressed with our permanent solution of reinforcing the wall with several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. We installed seven of these heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors on the problematic foundation wall to not only stabilize it, but also improve it. We also repaired the wall cracks and rebuilt the failing portion of the pilaster.

    Water intrusion also was an issue during heavy rains, so we installed basement waterproofing solutions including the WaterGuard interior drainage system and UltraSump sump pump. An IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.

    The owners are pleased these projects were completed so their home will be structurally stable and dry for many years to come.

    After recently moving into their house, homeowners in Dublin, OH, noticed their sump pump was running quite often. They were worried the existing system would not be able to keep up if there was a problem with water in the vast basement.

    The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Angie’s List. We replaced the existing sump pump with the reliable UltraSump Battery Back-Up System to give them peace of mind.

    When Inspector Travis Burkart first visited the homeowners to complete a thorough evaluation of the home and its waterproofing system, he noticed an issue outside. Water had frozen on the outside of the sump pump discharge lines. This can cause major problems inside the home including water seepage and flooding.

    To address this problem, we attached IceGuards to the sump pump discharge lines. These attachments will allow water to escape should the discharge lines freeze or become blocked.

    The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these basement waterproofing solutions will keep their home dry for many more years to come.

    Wall Anchors Stabilize Cracking, Bowing Foundation Wall in Galloway, OH

    Homeowners in Galloway, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 28 years ago. They've never had any major issues with their house until recently when they noticed horizontal cracking as well as inward bowing on one of their foundation walls.

    They were concerned these issues would get worse, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our expert crews installed five Geo-Lock Wall Anchors on the problematic foundation wall.

    These heavy-duty anchors will permanently stabilize the foundation wall where they were installed, and offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall over time without the cost and disruption of foundation replacement.

    The homeowners were excited to have this permanent foundation repair product installed in their home so that it will be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come.

    The owners of an apartment building in Urbana, OH, were concerned with the structural integrity of the 50-year-old residence.

    They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and we installed foundation repair products including Push Piers, SmartJacks, support beams and Carbon Fiber wall supports. Waterproofing products such as WaterGuard, TrenchDrain, UltraSump, and IceGuard were also installed to keep the basement dry.

    We also improved the access point to the crawl space. The safe and durable Turtl was installed to replace the older exterior access door, which was not as functional or secure.

    The owners were pleased all of these patented, permanent solutions were installed on the property so that it will be a safe, stable and dry living environment for many years to come.
