Job Stories From Cardington, OH
Waterproofing Upgrades Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Cardington, OH

During the 14 years that she has lived in her house, a homeowner in Cardington, OH, has had to deal with water leaking inside the basement. She had grown tired of constantly having to manually pump out this seeping water, so she started to look into possible repair options.

After she found information online about Ohio Basement Authority, the owner was motivated to contact us for further assistance. She met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the basement. Our inspector then presented the owner with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then waterproofed the large basement with the WaterGuard drainage system, TripleSafe and UltraSump sump pumps, and exterior IceGuard attachments. WaterGuard was placed in the sub-floor to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to one of the sump pumps placed in the large basement – a TripleSafe and an UltraSump. IceGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs will always keep her basement dry.

Stabilizing and Straightening Foundation Walls with Wall Anchors in Cardington, OH

After living in their house for 25 years, homeowners in Cardington, OH, started to notice problems with their foundation walls were getting worse. A few sections of two of these walls were cracking and beginning to tilt inward. Concerned with the safety and structural integrity of their home, the owners wanted to address these problems before serious damage resulted.

After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, the owners were motivated 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. He then recommended some of our reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors on the problematic foundation walls. These heavy-duty anchors permanently stabilize the walls, and their unique design allows them to be tightened for potential wall improvement.

The homeowners were pleased to have this trustworthy solution installed to ensure the safety of their home for many years to come.

Transforming a Nasty Crawl Space in Cardington, OH

After living in her home for less than one year, a homeowner in Cardington, OH, was growing concerned about the health of her home. Even though she never goes into the crawl space, she wondered if this area underneath her house was affecting the health of the rest of the home.

She wanted to have the crawl space under the 44-year-old home inspected. She was eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after being referred to us by a trusted friend who also was a happy, confident customer of ours. The homeowner met with the same inspector who assisted her friend, and he recommended several permanent solutions after thoroughly evaluating the crawl space.

One of our crews waterproofed the leaking crawl space with the SmartPipe drainage system and SmartSump sump pump. The crawl space was then encapsulated in thick and durable CleanSpace liner, and a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to control the moisture and humidity in the crawl space.

The crew also noticed some of the supports in the crawl space were beginning to fail, so they installed a supplemental steel support beam reinforced by two SmartJacks underneath.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing the crawl space, as well as the rest of the house, will be safer and healthier.

Permanent Waterproofing Solutions Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Cardington, OH

As she put her house on the market, a homeowner in Cardington, OH, knew she needed to address the leaking basement in the 117-year-old home.

She contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our experienced inspectors presented her with a complete basement waterproofing solution. She was able to sell the home and agreed to pay for the waterproofing repair.

Shortly after the new homeowner moved in, he was excited for us to complete these much-needed repairs. He was present as we installed the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain systems to intercept any seeping water, SuperSump sump pump that replaced the outdated system, CleanSpace liner to help waterproof and improve the stone walls’ appearance, and exterior discharge solutions like the IceGuard and LawnScape.

The new homeowner is pleased to have a living environment that will remain permanently dry because of these reliable solutions.

Waterproofing a Finished Basement in Cardington, OH

Homeowners in Cardington, OH began experiencing a lot of moisture in their finished basement. When a traditional dehumidifier wasn't doing the trick, they called us for more answers.

One of our certified inspectors visited the home to determine the best solutions. He explained all of our waterproofing products to the homeowners and helped them decide which would work best for them.

They decided to go with SaniDry XP and CX systems, a SuperSump pump, and WaterGuard.

The installation crew came in and first set up the SaniDry Basement Air Systems. These are superior dehumidifiers which remove ten times the water as a regular dehumidifier, while using half the energy. The XP system is a larger system designed for basements, and the CX system is a smaller one used in crawl spaces.

Next, they installed the SuperSump pump system. This includes a 1/2 horsepower cast-iron pump which can ump up to 2,200 gallons per hour.

Finally, they installed WaterGuard interior drains around the perimeter of the basement. These are drains with holes on the sides and a special flange to collect water from the floor, ground, and walls. They sit at a gradual slope which allows the water to flow into the SuperSump.

The homeowners are happy with the results and now have a permanently waterproofed basement.

We have a two story farm house built in 1916. At the time the house was built the basement walls were constructed with a type of poured wall. The walls are crumbling and cracking severely. I believe the walls need replaced. There is settling in the fact the lathe and plaster walls show signs of cracking in the living areas.
