Ohio Basement Authority installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors in one of my basement walls. I got three bids and chose this company for their cost and warranty. Everyone I talked to was great. Jim Pierpoint was very friendly and explained everything to me. He was great. The crew foreman and his crew were top-notch, No. 1. They did an excellent job and were very friendly. I would give them the highest rating that is possible. Thanks guys, and I would recommend them any time.

"After having four local companies give us estimates for our cracked and bowing walls, I made one last call to the Ohio Basement..."
After having four local companies give us estimates for our cracked and bowing walls, I made one last call to the Ohio Basement Authority, based on several great online reviews. Out of the five companies I had look at our basement, Ohio Basement Authority was the best by far!From the beginning of the process, I was very impressed with the professionalism of the company - from the first phone call to set up the appointment, to the completion of the project.When John Becker Sr. came to inspect and assess our basement, he was the first to actually look at the basement as a whole, rather than just our "problem areas" that we had pointed out. After the assessment of our foundation, we sat down and he explained the issues that we have with our foundation - there were more than I thought - along with the possible fixes.I never once felt pressured to choose their company, or to purchase the most expensive fixes for our problems. After reviewing the options, they were able to save me almost $12,000 for the same repair that I was quoted by another company, and they offer 12-month financing that takes no time to sign up for. Before John left, we had a date scheduled for repairs and the financing was set up.This morning, Joe Stuber and his crew came to install our carbon fiber straps. From the time he and his crew arrived, they were very professional and explained exactly what was going to take place during the install. They made sure to protect the rest of our basement from dust during the carbon fiber install, and cleaned up the little mess that they made before leaving.I have been very happy with the entire process, and will definitely call them for future repairs!

During the time that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Quaker City, OH, have noticed some glaring problems with the foundation walls. Sections of the walls, mainly in the attached garage, were starting to crack and crumble.
The owners were worried the wall would eventually give way and affect the structural integrity of the rest of the home. They wanted to address these problems before any significant damage resulted, and they found the answer while visiting a popular home and garden show. They stopped by Ohio Basement Authority’s booth and scheduled an appointment to meet with one of our inspectors. Then they met with Inspector Brendan Kent who evaluated the condition of the problematic wall.
Brendan recommended having one of our crews demolish and rebuild the most damage section of the wall, and then stabilizing it with other repair methods. We rebuilt the front section of the garage wall and stabilized the remainder by installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and Channel Anchors. These heavy-duty anchors also offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped them create a safer living environment.
A Zanesville, OH, homeowner noticed his basement walls were severely bowing inward. Ohio Basement Authority corrected the issue by installing the PowerBrace System.
The heavy-duty, zinc-plated steel beams are custom-fit to each basement wall height. The beams are tightly secured against the basement wall with heavy-duty steel brackets that are anchored to the basement floor and floor joists. The steel beams will stabilize the wall in its current position without any further adjustment.
Homeowners in Granville, OH, have lived in their house for less than one year, and they wanted to ensure its long-term structural integrity.
Even though there were several existing beams, the owners were growing concerned with various horizontal cracks in the foundation walls. These are common signs of wall failure that will only cause more issues and result in costly repairs if not addressed promptly.
The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us through our company website. One of our inspectors thoroughly evaluated the 50-year-old property, and then we installed one of our reliable foundation repair products.
The cracks were filled, and a total of 19 Carbon Fiber wall supports were installed to permanently stabilize the problematic foundation walls and prevent further cracking and inward movement. These sturdy wall supports can also be easily concealed with paint, drywall, or paneling.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their house will be a safe and stable living environment for many more years to come.
After several years of living in their house, homeowners in Johnstown, OH, were growing concerned with the safety and stability of their walk-out basement. This additional access point/emergency exit in the 98-year-old home has been deteriorating over time. The owners were looking for a permanent repair solution, and they found it after seeing an ad for Ohio Basement Authority on TV.
They contacted us, and we excavated this walk-out area, including the steps and retaining walls, and completely rebuilt it. The two adjacent foundation walls were also demolished and rebuilt with rebar-enforced concrete block. Carbon Fiber supports were also installed on these walls to further support them.
The owners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be a safer and stable living environment for many more years to come.
Homeowners in Pickerington, OH, had bowed and cracked foundation walls for about 10 years. They are hoping to sell the property, and want to be sure the home will be structurally sound.
Ohio Basement Authority installed the PowerBrace System, which included 14 steel beams along the north and west walls. The heavy-duty, zinc-plated steel beams will stabilize the wall and can be tightened over time.
