    Davida F. of Portsmouth, OH

    Customer Testimonial

              Victor is a fine gentleman, and he really went above and beyond the call of duty in providing the estimate. Not only was Victor on time, but he was a bit early. I must say that he was very, very polite, knowledgeable, and informative. Answers were provided in a manner that I could understand, and he even worked to cut costs where appropriate. I think that Ohio Basement Authority has a true asset in Victor. I would like to extend a special thanks to him and the company for the time and energy expended during the process. I felt that the booklet made it possible for me to understand more thoroughly the process involved and options available for the waterproofing process. I very much appreciate the pre-visit educational materials. I had notes in hand and addressed them with Victor prior to the inspection. We discussed them afterward and the estimate was developed based on the priorities at hand. The pre-visit information assisted me in developing the list, as well as questions raised by my brother who is in the construction business. Victor thoroughly addressed each issue. Victor even went to the extent of reviewing his photographs after leaving and contacted me with possible cost saving ideas. I'm telling you he is a true treasure. Development of the estimate took some time, as quite a few issues were being addressed. I really do appreciate the time and energy Victor gave throughout the process.

    Customer Testimonial

              Ohio Basement Authority previously performed work at my house, and everyone with the company was very professional both times we had work done by them. We were also very impressed because this company was the third or fourth contractor we had come out to our house to find a mystery leak, and the Ohio Basement Authority inspector found the root cause of it in 20 minutes. The installation crew arrived on time, and they were very courteous and nice to me and my kids. The inspector and foreman was knowledgeable and professional, and I appreciate the fix very much. It was done at a fair price, and I will call you again if I need any more work done.

    Customer Testimonial

              Victor is a great source of info, and great for bouncing off ideas. I feel confident in his presentations that he is doing what is best for me and not just the company. Martin, Oscar, and Alex were great to work with. They were courteous, respectful and helpful with explaining what they were doing every step of the way. More than once, Martin would respond with "we'll do whatever you ask." Of course within reason, but they were just a great crew to work with. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Louis B. of Columbus, OH

    Customer Testimonial

              Your crew was at my property today and installed five Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and two Carbon Fiber supports. I am a repeat customer, and have been impressed and happy with the results from Ohio Basement Authority. Today was no exception. Special recognition needs given to Drew and his crew. Drew especially was professional, provided excellent customer service, and was fun to have working on my house. He took the time to explain things, and his explanations were excellent and comprehensive. He gave options of other work that may be needed, and explained it well and without any judgement or any attempt to try to sell me. The crew was efficient, did excellent work, and cleaned up really well. They were considerate of my house, moved cardboard around so as to not track in mud or dirt, and put everything back in its place. They communicated well, called ahead as promised, and all three of them greeted me and were pleasant and professional. I also wish to commend Vic. Vic was the inspector on this job, and he and I have worked together before. He is knowledgeable, thoroughly understands his products, and allows the customer to ask questions, which are answered completely and honestly. He doesn’t push. He gives the opportunity for the customer to grasp the information and make competent decisions. If I need basement work again, I will call and ask for Vic. A Happy Customer, Louis

    A Failing Retaining Wall in Fredericktown, OH, is Permanently Stabilized

    Maintaining a safe and stable home is important to longtime homeowners in Fredericktown, OH. That is why they were motivated to address a worsening structural issue before it resulted in serious damage.

    The homeowners noticed the exterior retaining wall adjacent to their garage was beginning to cracking and bow outward. Retaining walls can fail due to a variety of issues including poor construction and hydrostatic pressure exerted on the wall by the soil.

    The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads, and we installed some of our many reliable foundation repair products. These included a Helical Pier and two Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. Both of these durable products permanently stabilize, straighten, and reinforce the retaining wall.

    The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped them create a safer living environment.

    Sealing a Nasty Crawl Space Improves a Home's Health in Dublin, OH

    After working with Ohio Basement Authority on several of his other rental properties, a homeowner was eager to contact us again when he noticed health issues with a house he owns in Dublin, OH. The owner noticed the crawl space was full of debris and failing insulation and floor matting. These conditions can greatly affect the health of the rest of the home, and the owner wanted to make sure it would be an ideal living environment for his future tenants.

    After contacting us and consulting with the same trusted inspector, Victor Golowin, the owner was eager for us to transform the nasty crawl space. After the debris and older insulation was removed, one of our experienced repair crews encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner.

    Similar to swimming pool liner, CleanSpace is thick and durable. It completely isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. It is tough enough to crawl on, and its durability is further enhanced by thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process. This makes the crawl space an ideal area for storage.

    The owner was happy to call on Ohio Basement Authority again, and he is pleased with the outcome of the repair project.
