5 Reasons Not to DIY Basement & Foundation Repairs

It can be tempting to try to fix something on your own – especially if it doesn’t seem like that bad of an issue, or DIY seems like the cheaper option.

The problem with basement leakage and foundation damage is that they only become worse over time, and they need expert attention to prevent worsening. That’s where our team at Ohio Basement Authority comes in.

Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of various DIY repair attempts. While some of them may be temporary bandages, they only fix the problem in the short term.

Learn why it’s not a good idea to take on basement and foundation repairs yourself, why it’s best to leave them to trusted local experts, and how we can help you create a safer and healthier living environment.

Why You Should Leave Repairs to the Pros

There are many reasons why repairs like basement waterproofing and foundation repair should be executed by repair professionals. Here are five of them:

1. We’re the Experts

Our team is comprised of highly trained and experienced individuals. Many have a long family history in the industry and have been repairing and protecting homes around Central and Southern Ohio for many years. We also make sure everyone on our staff – from inspectors and office personnel to foremen and crew members – stays up-to-date on the latest industry trends and products, and completes extensive training through our company.

2. We Install Top-of-the-Line Products

We offer cutting-edge, industry-leading products you can’t buy in big box stores. Everything we install is fully customizable to each home and its repair needs, making them unique to your situation. We also provide long-term, transferable warranties for all our products.

3. We Will Save You Time

Basement waterproofing and foundation repair projects can be quite extensive and would take much longer for you to complete. Let us finish it in a timely manner. This will give you time for your busy lifestyle and give you a fully-functioning, dry basement. We’ll do all the clean-up too!

4. Serious Injury Could Occur

Many of our projects involve heavy lifting, crawling into unstable and enclosed spaces, and entering moldy, unhealthy environments. Our crews wear proper safety gear, are well-trained, and perform these projects every day, so it is much safer for them to do the installation.

5. We Offer Great Financing Options

We offer financing options to make it easier for you to afford. While DIY would be cheaper at the time, we will make sure it’s done the right way, and this permanent repair will make it cheaper by preventing the need for further repairs in the long run. We provide a variety of options, easy payment plans, transparent pricing with no hidden fees, and competitive rates.
