Job Stories From Bellefontaine, OH
Keeping a Leaking Basement Dry in Bellefontaine, OH

After living in his house for several years, a homeowner in Bellefontaine, OH, was finally motivated to address some problems in the basement. He was tired of dealing with water seeping inside, resulting in puddles and damage.

As he began to research potential repairs, the owner found information about Ohio Basement Authority online. He was then eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. He met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the basement. Our inspector then presented the owner with several of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain drainage systems, TripleSafe sump pump, CleanSpace wall system, and exterior IceGuard attachment.

WaterGuard was placed in the sub-floor to catch seeping water from the walls and floor, and TrenchDrain was placed in the floor in front of the basement door. Any water intercepted by these systems is drained into the TripleSafe sump pump to be pumped out of the house. IceGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines.

Additonally, CleanSpace liner was placed on the walls to improve their appearance and help direct seeping water from the walls down to the WaterGuard system.

The homeowner is pleased to now have a dry basement because of these trustworthy repairs.

Waterproofing a Bellefontaine Basement

After living in their home for 15 years, homeowners in Bellefontaine, OH, decided it was time to deal with the basement they described as "never being dry." There was excessive moisture and water coming in through the walls. They did an Internet search and found that we offer free inspections and estimates, so they called to set one up.

One of our certified inspectors thoroughly examined the area and decided that TrenchDrain, UltraSumpSuperSump, and WaterGuard could be installed to repair the problems the homeowners were having.

One of our well-trained crews arrived at the scheduled time to install these products. The homeowners are very happy with the results, and their once damp basement is now "always dry."

Saving Energy Through Crawl Space Insulation in Bellefontaine, OH

A homeowner in Bellefontaine, OH contacted us to inquire about crawl space encapsulation for his second home. He said he was most concerned with addressing the exposed dirt and saving money and energy.

After one of our certified inspectors paid him a visit, the homeowner decided to have CleanSpace Liner installed throughout the crawl space. He also elected to have spray foam applied for extra insulation.

CleanSpace is a durable plastic liner typically used in crawl spaces to sequester them from dirt, bugs, mold, and moisture. This will save energy by insulating the space and blocking any damp air (which is more difficult to heat and cool).

The spray foam was applied to the band joists in the ceiling were outside air is most likely to come in.

The homeowner is relieved to know he will be spending less money to heat this second home in the winter, and that his crawl space is clean and healthy!

Extensive Crawl Space Repair Helps Create a Healthier Home in Bellefontaine, OH

Homeowners in Bellefontaine, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 35 years ago. During that time, they have noticed issues getting worse such as squeaking floors that also were out of level.

One of our experienced inspectors completed a thorough evaluation to find the root of the homeowners’ structural problems. These issues originated in the crawl space under the house. Along with a failing support system and floor joists, the crawl space was full of debris, failing insulation, seeping water and odors. Once the homeowners saw photos from our inspector’s findings, they were motivated to completely overhaul the crawl space.

One of our expert crawl space repair crews transformed the nasty crawl space into a healthy and functional area. To address the sagging floors, we installed a new main support beam, which was further reinforced by six SmartJacks.

We waterproofed the crawl space by installing the SmartPipe drainage system and a SmartSump sump pump, and the SaniDry CX dehumidifier will purify the air and help control humidity. The crawl space also was encapsulated in durable CleanSpace liner and insulated with SilverGlo panels on the walls.

Several vent covers were placed over the exterior vents to further seal the crawl space from outside air and pests, and the Turtl access well was added as a bigger and more secure access point.
