Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Bucyrus, OH Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Bucyrus, OH

While they have lived in their house for many years, longtime homeowners in Bucyrus, OH, wanted to be sure they had a trustworthy waterproofing system in their basement. They were concerned with moisture in the basement and the rest of the house, and they wondered how efficient the existing system really was.

After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners wanted to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of their home’s waterproofing system. He noted that the current sump pump system appeared to be outdated and was starting to show signs of failure. Before they had to deal with a flood situation, our inspector recommended upgrading their waterproofing system to more reliable products.

The homeowners agreed with the assessment, and they were eager for Foreman Milton Castro and his crew to complete this project. We installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system and SuperSump sump pump in the basement.

WaterGuard is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SuperSump to be pumped out of the basement and away from the home. The SuperSump features a powerful ½ hp pump that can pump more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The SuperSump is one of the many reliable sump pump systems we offer, and we installed this system in the homeowners’ basement in the larger sump liner used for the TripleSafe system to allow for easy future upgrades.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be protected by these trustworthy repairs.

Foundation Repair and Exterior Drainage Upgrades in Bucyrus, OH

After living in her house for 15 years, a homeowner in Bucyrus, OH, was preparing to put the house on the market. But she was concerned problems with the basement would affect her ability to sell the home. One of the foundation walls was cracking and slightly tilting inward, and water seeped into a few corners.

After she saw some of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, the owner was motivated to contact us for further guidance. She then met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the home, including the problematic foundation wall and the exterior drainage system. Our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions, as well as upgrading the exterior drainage system.

One of our crews then permanently stabilized the failing foundation wall with several Carbon Fiber supports. These durable supports firmly adhere to the wall to hold it in its current position. They also prevent any further cracking or inward bowing, and can easily be concealed with basement finishing materials.

The exterior drainage system also was upgraded by installing newer, thicker, and more reliable pipes for the downspout conductor lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain far enough away from the home’s foundation. LawnScape outlets also were used to conceal the ends of these lines in the yard.

The homeowner can confidently sell the home knowing these trustworthy repair projects have helped ensure the health and safety of the structure.

Fixing and Protecting Cracking, Tilting Foundation Walls in Bucyrus, OH

Since moving into their house almost 20 years ago, homeowners in Bucyrus, OH, have witnessed structural issues worsen over time. Several areas of the foundation walls were cracking, and some spots were tilting inward.

Concerned with total wall failure and the structural stability of their home, the owners were motivated to address these problems once and for all.

Once they met with one of our inspectors, the owners were eager for one of our crews to fix and protect the walls with our reliable foundation repair solutions.

These included Carbon Fiber supports and steel I-Beams on the walls that were not severely cracking or bowing inward. Each of these pieces permanently stabilizes the walls where they are installed. They also protect the walls and prevent any further cracking or inward bowing.

Several PowerBrace beams were placed on the walls that needed more attention. Similar to the other products, PowerBraces also reinforce the walls and prevent any more damage. The unique design of this system allows the beams to be tightened for wall improvement.

One of the support beams in the basement also was not being properly supported. This can lead to sagging floors. In order to help correct this, we installed several SmartJacks underneath the beam to reinforce it and help raise any sagging areas of the floor back to level.

Correcting a Cracking, Leaking Basement in Bucyrus, OH

After living in their house for more than 20 years, homeowners in Bucyrus, OH, were ready to address their leaking basement once and for all. During recent periods of heavy rain, they’ve noticed water seeping into the basement in a couple areas where the foundation walls meet the basement floor. Two of the foundation walls also were showing signs of failure in the form of various horizontal and stair-step cracks.

The owners wanted to make sure their longtime home would always be dry and structurally sound, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads. After meeting with one of our expert inspectors, the homeowners were eager for one of our experienced crews to install several permanent basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.

First, we tackled the foundation walls by installing several Carbon Fiber supports. These sturdy supports permanently reinforce the foundation walls where they were installed, and they prevent any further cracking or potential inward movement.

We then waterproofed the basement by installing the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system and UltraSump Sump Sump. If any water seeps into the basement, WaterGuard will intercept it and direct it to the powerful UltraSump. Along with powerful pumps inside the sump liner, the UltraSump’s external battery backup ensures the system will always work to pump water out of the basement, even in the event of a power outage.

An IceGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. This discharge line was directed to drain out into the side yard, and the end of the line was camouflaged with a LawnScape outlet.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing longtime home will be safer and healthier because of these permanent solutions.
