    By Samuel G.
    Columbus, OH

    Ohio Basement Authority encapsulated the crawl space and installed four SmartJacks, each with a poured concrete base, to raise the floor joists and provide support. It went very well. We knew a large area of the floor wasn't level by about 1 1/4" because a wall wasn't load bearing that probably should have been. After the project had begun, the crew quickly adjusted their plans to pour the concrete and install the SmartJacks before finishing the encapsulation. They finished in two days. The floor feels more solid, and it is noticeably more level. They also did the necessary things to do the job, like re-routing the dryer vent and a duct. The encapsulation is working as expected. The crawl space is now room temperature, and the above room's floor is also room temperature.

    I originally chose Ohio Basement Authority because they installed my sump pump (Blue Print Columbus). However, after getting estimates from other companies, I found Ohio Basement Authority not only to have a great quote, but Justin to be very professional and answered all questions. I would definitely recommend this company.

    Customer Testimonial

              The office staff was courteous and helpful, and the company representative was outstanding! He took the time to describe the problem and answer all of my questions. He treated me with respect, which I greatly appreciate. I chose to work with the company because of its rating on the Internet with the BBB. I also talked to two previous companies, and they were not willing to do the work I wanted done. The crew arrived early! I really liked the idea that the representative and the crew called while they were on the road and told me when they would arrive. They were almost to the minute! The crew was also very courteous. The chief foreman also explained things to me. A couple of changes had to be made, and he made sure I understood why they needed to be made. The clean-up was better than I ever expected. I have felt very confident that I chose the best company, from the first person I talked to on the phone to the men who completed the work.

    Customer Testimonial

              I found Ohio Basement Authority on the Internet, and decided to go with the company after seeing reviews. Also because the inspector explained everything going on with my foundation, and showed me and my wife. The staff was very courteous. I was very impressed. They remembered what shift I worked and contacted me at appropriate times. The inspector, as well as the installers, did a great job showing and explaining things. I am very pleased, and will definitely recommend the company.

    Customer Testimonial

              Your representative was very nice, and he knew the products he showed me. He explained what would be best for the problem my basement had. I would refer anyone to him if they needed work done. The company was one of four that was referred to me. I selected it because of the name, Ohio Basement Authority. It is exactly what I needed. The crew got right to work and was no bother to me. They even helped me by moving a vehicle for me. Thank you so much for sending me a great crew! I will let everyone know about your company and how pleased I am with the work that was done on my home.

    Customer Testimonial

              I just wanted to thank you for all your help and patience with my encapsulation project. I am very happy with the work that was done, and the crew that did the work. They were all very professional, considerate, and kept me informed about everything they were doing. I have noticed a big difference in the humidity in the house. I have had no condensation on my windows at all, even with the cold temps we have had this winter. What a difference! I do believe that it is helping to keep the house warmer, and will help in the summer to keep the house cooler and humidity down. I just wanted to let you know that I was very happy with all you did, and all the help you and the guys who worked on my project did. My experience with your company has been great, and I would recommend your company to anyone who is having crawl space issues. I wish you the best.

    Customer Testimonial

              We’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority on TV, and we chose to work with the company because of our excellent inspector, Justin. He was awesome, and genuinely nice and caring. He called back, was professional and personable, and did a thorough investigation including snaking the pipe for free to diagnose. The other places wanted to charge me to find out what was wrong and how to fix it. Justin and I discussed how far out we wanted the pipe laid to avoid another tree root issue. We are glad they used 10-foot pope and glued the joists together. My husband said the workers were very nice as well.

              I chose Ohio Basement Authority because of Angie's List reviews, the courteous office staff, and prompt attention to my call. The representative met me at the door and introduced himself and his co-worker. They were very polite and informative, and asked if I had any questions prior to starting work. They did a nice job, walked me through the completed work, and tested the draining prior to leaving.

    Customer Testimonial

              I found Ohio Basement Authority in the phone book when I was price comparing. The office staff actually called the same day when I signed the contract/work order for a next day appointment. The representative's presentation was honest and reasonable. Along with the price, quality of the repair and lifetime warranty, that's why I selected Ohio Basement Authority. The crew was very courteous, explained everything, and cleaned up everything. I really want to thank the office and staff for being so professional. Awesome job!

    Customer Testimonial

              Our son had a evaluation of his basement walls and was pleased with the findings, and the office staff was very pleasant and helpful. There was no pressure, just the facts, which we appreciated. We felt that we received honest answers and were able to get the work done in a timely manner. The crew was very courteous, plus they answered all our questions. They worked very hard and completed the job in one day. We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanup, and they were able to keep the dust to a minimum.

    Customer Testimonial

              I heard about Ohio Basement Authority through the company's TV ad, and I chose to work with them because of the price and product offered. The inspector I met with was friendly, kind, informative and patient. The crew was awesome. They were on time, and actually arrived a little early. They cleaned up every step of the way, and were very insistent that they go the extra mile to make sure they didn't leave any evidence that they had been here.
