Job Stories From Chesapeake, OH
Properly Sealing a Crawl Space in Chesapeake, OH

After living in their house for a couple of years, homeowners in Chesapeake, OH, began to question the health and safety of their home. They noticed some unpleasant odors, but couldn’t place where they were coming from. They wanted to fix this problem before it worsened, and they knew they could count on Ohio Basement Authority for the right solution. They previously worked with us to waterproof their basement not long after they moved into the house.

They met with one of our inspectors who ventured into the crawl space to investigate. He found this was an unsightly and unhealthy area under the house. The open vents were allowing outside nuisances inside causing problems such as moisture and humidity, as well as failing insulation and plastic floor lining. Our inspector then recommended the perfect repair solutions.

One of our crews first removed the debris and other nuisances, and then the crawl space was encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. This thick, durable liner completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. It also is a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. Vent covers were placed on the home’s exterior to further seal the crawl space from outside air, water and pests.

The homeowners are pleased to now have a safer and healthier crawl space and home because of these trustworthy repairs.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Chesapeake, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Chesapeake, OH, recently started to notice a glaring problem. Once they removed some of the drywall from their basement walls, they noticed evidence of water intrusion. Water appeared to be seeping through the walls, saturating and damaging various areas of drywall and carpet.

The owners wanted to address this problem before refinishing their basement to prevent any additional damage. They started to research repair options, and they found information about Ohio Basement Authority on resources like Home Advisor. They were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors. Our inspector completed a thorough evaluation of the leaking basement, and he then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system, UltraSump sump pump and SaniDry dehumidifier. The sub-floor WaterGuard system intercepts seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the UltraSump to be pumped out of the basement. The UltraSump features two pumps inside the liner, as well as an external backup battery to ensure the system’s continued operation even during power outages. The SaniDry dehumidifier cleans and filters the air, controls moisture and humidity, and reduces odors and the potential for mold growth.

The homeowner now have peace of mind knowing their basement will stay safe and dry for many years to come because of these trustworthy solutions.

Waterproofing a Wet Crawl Space in Chesapeake, OH

As they moved into their house, new homeowners in Chesapeake, OH, noticed some issues they wanted to have addressed before settling down. They noticed the vast crawl space under the house had standing water in several areas. The crawl space also had failing insulation and floor liner, but the owners wanted to concentrate on first correcting the leaking issue before other repairs.

After coming across Ohio Basement Authority’s website, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors, and he recommended some of our reliable waterproofing solutions.

Because of the existing trench in the crawl space that also exposed the foundation footing, we used the WaterGuard system as the crawl space drainage system. WaterGuard is designed to sit in the sub-floor and on the footer to catch any seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the UltraSump Sump Pump. Equipped with two powerful pumps inside its liner and an external backup battery, the UltraSump will always work to pump water out of the crawl space.

The new homeowners are happy to have the leaking crawl space situation under control so they can move into the house and onto other projects.
