    Dirk and his crew did a great job for us installing a French drain and repairing a basement crack. They were professional, courteous and kept in contact with us throughout the whole process. We were impressed from the beginning when Corey first came to meet with my husband. He spent a good amount of time answering questions and explaining in detail all the company can provide for drainage issues, basement repairs, etc. Thanks for the all around great customer service from all of you!

    Your company was listed on the Home Advisor website and I had seen commercials on local television. Your sales representative, Corey Froelich, was courteous, professional and very knowledgeable. He spent quite a bit of time explaining and demonstrating the repair process as well.

    Colin, Justin and Marcus were great from start to finish. They were prompt and they spent the entire day working non-stop to get my project finished. I appreciate their attention to detail, showing me their work throughout the process, and long hours spent to get it completed in one day. Outstanding job by Colin, Justin and Marcus. I would request them again multiple times over.

    Low pressure and education. Did not try to oversell. Corey was very good at listening to what I wanted to achieve and offering appropriate suggestions. He convinced me that he had my best interest at heart and not just a sale.

    Searched local basement vendors after getting an outrageous quote from another company. I appreciate the "real" nature of Corey the salesperson. He didn't oversell us and was patient while we waited to finish the job. Installers were very knowledgeable and called to confirm the plan before installation. I greatly appreciated that.

    Customer Testimonial

              I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of a recommendation by a friend who had foundation work done by your company. I met with Corey. You are very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and courteous representative. He explained the process, equipment, and uniqueness of the basement water control system with admirable clarity and patience for any questions I had. The installation crew was extraordinarily courteous and thoughtful. They worked so smoothly together, and it was impressive to observe. Jose, the foreman, went over the project very carefully with me so as to make sure we were both on the same page and I knew exactly what the sequence of work would be. Ohio Basement Authority can take great pride in the performance of this installation crew. Wow! They are good, good, good. I'm impressed by the staff of Ohio Basement Authority, the quality of their work, and my interaction with Corey and Jose and his crew. If only other companies could match your product and staff.

    Linda and Donald N. of Granville, OH

    Customer Testimonial

              We feel compelled to write you regarding our recent experience with your company. Mainly the words professional, integrity and solid product come to mind. We live in Granville and our lot sits low. We built this home 21 years ago and have two sump wells, which we have maintained throughout the years. We've only had water in our 2,500 square foot, unfinished basement once, and that was enough. The original pumps were Zoeller. After eight years or so, they wore out and we began the 13-year flurry of sump pump “hell.” We went through many products and many exchanges and replacements of battery back-ups. We are diligent about checking battery charge/water levels and replacing pumps/switches at the first sign of any system distress. We are "in tune" with what is going on in our basement. We travel a lot and want confidence that we won't come home to a disaster. We have endured several extended power outages – some lasting 7 to 10 days – where we have had back-up batteries attached to our back-up battery. We even ran back and forth to a truck stop to keep those charged through these outages. We were weary and lacked confidence in our efforts. Our ultimate goal was to put the TripleSafe product in the main sump pump well and move the other battery back-up system to the second sump pump well. We finally have accomplished that goal. We had looked at it for years with another company, then attended the remodel expo this past winter and found it at Ohio Basement Authority’s booth. Then Corey came out and made a thorough and professional presentation, and we set up an installation date. The crew members were professional, hard-working, respectful of our home, and put in an entire 8-hour day to install our new system and move the other back-up battery. They totally cleaned up their work area and disposed all debris. Even though there were several "snafus" that surfaced immediately afterward, this is where your staff really shined! Our older back-up battery alarm began beeping the very next day in clear, sunny, dry weather. We called your office and, on a Saturday, Brian came out to fix the float switch. The next day, the new TripleSafe began to beep. That Monday, I called Brandie, and they handled it with immediate consideration and true empathy and sent Brian back out that very day. He troubleshot that evening on the new system for three more hours. He then returned two days later and reworked the install. It has been operating as expected ever since. Brian provided the complete confidence and thorough explanations we expected and needed. We felt he knew exactly what he was doing and he did it! Brian is terrific! In this case, all your staff made us feel like all that was really important was that everything was done properly and attended to as soon as possible. We never felt like we were going to be “hung out.” For these reasons, we feel that you and your company will be there for us in the operation of this product, and that we made the right choice. We always knew that the TripleSafe was the way we wanted to go, but the install and warranty is the most important part of the story. You should be proud and really value the people who work on your behalf. They represent you well!

  • Sump Pump Upgrade and Other Waterproofing Installations Will Keep a Basement Dry in Blacklick, OH

    Sump Pump Upgrade and Other Waterproofing Installations Will Keep a Basement Dry in Blacklick, OH
    After

    Ever since they moved into their house more than 25 years ago, homeowners in Blacklick, OH, have had problems with water seeping into their basement. They finally had enough of the issue and were motivated to correct it once and for all.

    They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV commercials, and we installed various waterproofing products to permanently keep their basement dry.

    These included the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system that will catch any water intrusion right away and drain it to a sump pump. The older sump pump was also replaced by a SuperSump pump. The pump was installed inside a larger TripleSafe liner so the owners can easily upgrade the system in the future if they choose.

    An IceGuard was also attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding should the line freeze or become blocked.

    The owners now have peace of mind knowing their forever home will be a safe and healthy living environment for many more years to come!

    Permanent Solutions Correct a Wet Basement with Cracking Walls in Columbus, OH
    After

    After removing the drywall from their foundation walls recently, homeowners in Columbus, OH, discovered a few concerning health and safety issues.

    One of the walls featured cracks in various patterns, and was beginning to bow inward. There were also moisture issues in the corner, and it appeared the existing sump pump was not functioning properly.

    The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we installed various basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.

    The WaterGuard drainage system was installed in the sub-floor to direct any seeping water to the sump pump. The older sump pump was replaced and upgraded by installing the trustworthy TripleSafe sump pump. An IceGuard was also attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. These products will always keep water out of the basement and away from the foundation.

    The problematic foundation walls were corrected with the installation of several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. The heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors stabilize and help straighten the wall so it will no longer crack or bow inward.

    The homeowners can rest easier now that their basement is dry and stable!

    After

    During recent heavy rains, homeowners in Columbus, OH, noticed water entering their basement and saturating the floor. They wanted to make sure their forever home would always be safe and dry, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority.

    We replaced their older, failing sump pump with the reliable TripleSafe sump pump. This system features three high-powered pumps inside the liner, as well as a back-up battery that will allow the system to continue to work even during a power outage.

    Other waterproofing products that were installed to keep the basement dry included the WaterGuard drainage system, an exterior IceGuard and buried downspout conductor lines.

    The owners now have peace of mind knowing these permanent solutions will keep their basement free of water for many years to come.

  • TripleSafe Sump Pump Upgrade Will Always Keep a Home Dry in London, OH
    Before
    TripleSafe Sump Pump Upgrade Will Always Keep a Home Dry in London, OH
    After

    After living in his house for less than one year, a homeowner in London, OH, already experienced some water in his basement. He had the downspout and discharge lines replaced, but he knew the existing sump pump was on its way out. The system appeared to be running frequently, and not necessarily able to keep up with seeping water.

    The homeowner didn’t want to have to worry about the basement flooding every time it rained, so he was motivated to address this outdated system. After seeing Ohio Basement Authority on TV and online, the owner was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him.

    The owner met with Inspector Corey Froelich who evaluated the condition of the waterproofing system including the sump pump. Corey pointed out the property was in a low water table area, so the sump pump naturally would frequently run. While the system had a lid to cover the pit and the pumping equipment, its partially open nature also posed problems. Objects could fall inside and damage the system, and any water in the pit could easily evaporate back into the basement to cause additional issues.

    Corey presented the owner with one of our reliable sump pump systems. Foreman Jose de Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then removed the older sump pump system and replaced it with the “king” of sump pumps – the TripleSafe. Equipped with three powerful pumps inside its large liner, as well as external backup battery, the TripleSafe will always work to keep water out of the basement. IceGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding.

    The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing this trustworthy system will keep his home dry for many years to come.
