Homeowners in Ashville, OH, moved into their house not long after it was built a couple years ago. During that time, they noticed a problem with seeping water only once in their basement. Since that happened, the owners wanted to look into options to back up their existing sump pump.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online, and then they met with one of our inspectors. The inspector evaluated the condition of the basement, and he then recommended having one of our crews install a second sump pump system to help keep the vast basement dry.
We installed the UltraSump sump pump in a corner of the basement opposite the existing system. Along with two powerful pumps inside the liner, the UltraSump also features an external backup battery that ensures the system’s continued operation even in the event of power outages. The UltraSump was installed inside the larger TripleSafe liner to allow for easy future upgrades.
Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.
We also installed a SaniDry dehumidifier. It cleans and filters the air, controls moisture and humidity, and helps eliminate odors and the potential for mold growth. The compact Sedona model is powerful, yet energy efficient. It is ENERGY STAR® certified, and it can remove up to 95 pints of water per day. Unlike conventional dehumidifiers, the SaniDry self-drains so there are no buckets to empty. We installed the dehumidifier next to the sump pump so the unit can directly drain water into the UltraSump system.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier longtime home.

Homeowners in Ashville, OH, were ready to sell their house. But before putting the house on the market, the owners knew they needed to address various repair projects.

The owners voiced their concerns to their realtor, who referred them to Ohio Basement Authority for assistance. They then met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the crawl space. Our inspector also recommended some of our reliable repair solutions.
After ridding the crawl space of any nuisances, one of our crews then encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner, similar to swimming pool liner, completely seals the crawl space to isolate the home from the earth. CleanSpace also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier and it helps insulate the crawl space.

The owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through our website, and we installed some of our many reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
These included the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain drainage systems. WaterGuard was installed throughout the basement’s perimeter in the sub-floor, and sections of TrenchDrain were placed in front of the basement walk-out access point and tied into the WaterGuard system. Both of these drainage systems intercept seeping water and direct it to the TripleSafe sump pump system. The TripleSafe then pumps the water out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation.
IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and these lines were tied into new downspout conductor lines that also were installed on the property.

They wanted to address these issues before the conditions worsened, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Angie’s List. We then transformed the crawl space through an encapsulation and insulation project.
The crawl space was encapsulated in CleanSpace liner, which completely isolates the home environment from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. Additional insulation methods included placing TerraBlock insulation panels on the floor before installing CleanSpace, placing SilverGlo panels on the walls, and applying spray foam insulation to the band joists.
