SmartJacks Stabilize Sagging Floors in Ashley, OH

SmartJacks Stabilize Sagging Floors in Ashley, OH SmartJacks Stabilize Sagging Floors in Ashley, OH

Because they plan to live in their house long-term, having a safe and stable home is very important to homeowners in Ashley, OH. Even though they have lived in the house for almost 35 years, it wasn’t until recently that they noticed areas of the floors were beginning to sag. They also wondered if this could be related to clay block support walls in the basement that were beginning to crumble and show signs of failure.

The homeowners were motivated to address these issues once and for all after seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s booth at a local home and garden show. They met with one of our expert inspectors, and were eager for one of our highly-trained crews to install the perfect foundation repair solution.

The crew first made sure the above floor would be stable by installing temporary support jacks and beams. Then they demolished and hauled away the clay block walls to make way for several SmartJacks. Made of galvanized steel, the heavy-duty SmartJacks permanently stabilize the floor, floor joists, and new steel support beam. They prevent further sagging and offer the best opportunity to lift the floors back to level. SmartJacks also will not rust or corrode, and they are designed to stop settling. If any settlement occurs, however, the SmartJacks can easily be adjusted.

The homeowners were pleased this permanent solution was installed so they will have a safe and structurally sound living environment for many years to come.

Job Stories From Ashley, OH
Foundation Stabilization in Ashley, OH

During the last few years, homeowners in Ashley, OH, noticed cracks in their foundation walls were getting worse. The walls also appeared to be tilting inward in some spots. Some areas of their floors also felt uneven and sagging.

Hoping to avoid serious damage, the owners wanted to find the best repair solutions. After finding information online about Ohio Basement Authority, they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the walls and support system. Our inspector then recommended some of our reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then permanently stabilized the walls with several Carbon Fiber supports, which firmly adhere to the walls to hold them in their current positions. The failing, corroding support jacks underneath the floor joists were removed and replaced with more durable SmartJacks.

Our crew also waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard interior drainage system, UltraSump sump pump and a SaniDry dehumidifier.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing their home is protected by these trustworthy solutions.

Stabilizing Sagging Floors with SmartJacks in Ashley, OH

They have lived in their house for almost 35 years, but within the last year homeowners in Ashley, OH, started to notice a couple areas of the floor were sagging and unlevel. These areas also seemed to be above clay block support walls in the basement that were crumbling and failing. Concerned these walls could collapse and result in significant damage, the homeowners wanted to address these issues right away.

They were motivated to do so after visiting with some of our staff who were manning our booth at a local home and garden show. The homeowners were excited to meet with one of our highly trained inspectors, followed by one of our expert crews for a permanent repair solution.

To ensure the floor and home’s stability, the crew first put temporary support jacks and posts in place in the basement. The clay block walls were then demolished, and several SmartJacks were installed underneath a new steel support beam. The heavy-duty, galvanized steel SmartJacks permanently stabilize the floor and floor joists. They also prevent further sagging and offer the best opportunity to lift the floors back to level. The SmartJacks will not rust or corrode. They also are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

The homeowners are now happy to have a safe and stable forever home because of this reliable repair solution.

Repairing an Old, Nasty, Wet Basement in Ashley, OH

A homeowner is Ashley, OH called us and described her 100-year-old basement as "old, nasty, and wet." One of her crumbling stone walls leaked water and mud when it rained, and she was concerned that the wall might even be giving out. As she was trying to sell the home, she knew potential buyers would not be happy with the condition of the basement.

Certified inspector, Jim Pierpoint, visited the home for a free estimate and inspection. He suggested using CleanSpace on the problematic walls, adding a SuperSump, and installing WaterGuard.

The homeowner decided to go with all of these suggestions. While she was experiencing some foundation issues as well, she chose not to repair those because she believed they were not as urgent.

The production crew, led by foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz, first put in the SuperSump sump pump system. This is a super powerful 1/2 horsepower cast-iron pump that includes an airtight floor drain and a WaterWatch Alarm as a precaution in case there is a risk of overflow.

Then, they installed WaterGuard which is an interior drainage system. Its unique trapezoidal shape sits right on top of the basement's concrete footer, and this prevents it from becoming clogged with soil from the ground below. It has holes and a flange to catch water from the wall, ground, and floor.

Finally, they installed CleanSpace around the three earthbound walls to protect the basement from outside elements. This is a thick, plastic liner that allows water to run behind it and into the WaterGuard system below.

The homeowner now has a clean, dry basement and feels much more comfortable selling it to a new owner.

Permanently Stabilizing Settling Foundation Walls in Ashley, OH

When they moved into their house 15 years ago, homeowners in Ashley, OH, noticed potential structural issues. One of their foundation walls was cracking and slightly bowing inward. While they have been keeping an eye on these issues, the owners have noticed them worsening over time.

Cracking and inward bowing are two of the most common signs of foundation wall failure. While it is typical to see these problems, they should not be neglected. If these issues continue to progress, they will only lead to dangerous safety hazards that will be costly to repair in the long run.

Hoping to find a permanent solution, the homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. We then installed one type of our many reliable foundation repair products to address this structural issue.

Several PowerBrace beams were installed on the problematic foundation wall. These heavy-duty, steel beams permanently stabilize the foundation wall where they were installed. They are zinc-plated so they will never rust, corrode or fail like other beams.

While completing this structural project, our crew also took on another repair to further enhance the home’s stability. The cracking and bowing wall in the basement was underneath a sunroom addition attached to the back deck, and this room was starting to settle. To properly stabilize these structures, several Helical Deck Piers were installed underneath these sections of the home.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come.

Water Line Replacement in Ashley, OH

Homeowners in Ashley, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 24 years ago. It wasn’t until recently, however, that they noticed problems with the water line serving their home. Not only was there an issue with the exterior line, the owners noticed water leaking through the interior hookup.

After seeing one of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they were motivated to contact us for a repair solution.

One of our expert repair crews that specializes in water lines repaired the damaged water supply line and installed a newer, thicker and more reliable pipe. The crew also replaced the interior pipes and connection, and sealed around the area where the water line exits the foundation wall.

The homeowners are now pleased to have an updated and repaired water line.

Vicinity of Strine Rd in Ashley
I live in an area that has a high water table and my sump pump has to cycle frequently. I have a two pump system - my primary pump failed recently and was replaced with a Blue Angel 1/2hp plastic case pump. My secondary pump has now failed as well. Both pumps were Zoeller cast iron pumps - I don't know the model numbers. I need to consult/get an estimate on replacing the pumps and a system to reliably remove the water.
