Carbon Fiber Supports Stabilize Cracking, Bowing Foundation Walls in Springfield, OH

They have lived in their house for more than 40 years, and during that time homeowners in Springfield, OH, have noticed cracks in the foundation walls getting worse.

As water saturates soil around a home, it expands and exerts pressure on the wall. This continuous force, called hydrostatic pressure, has an impact on the structural integrity of the foundation walls. As the force pushes against the walls over time, it causes the walls to begin to fail, crack, and bow inward.

The homeowners are thinking about their ability to sell the house in the future, and they want to make sure it will be a safe and stable environment that will maintain its value.

The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through websites like Home Advisor. We patched all the cracks and installed one of our many reliable foundation repair products. A total of 19 Carbon Fiber wall supports was installed on the two problematic foundation walls. These sturdy supports permanently stabilize the walls and prevent further cracking and inward movement. The are also easy to conceal with paint or drywall.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing the home will be structurally sound for many more years to come.

Permanent Repair Products Transform a Wet Crawl Space in Springfield, OH

Upon calling an exterminator to rid his house of termites, a homeowner noticed the crawl space under his house was in bad shape.

Along with failing insulation and liner in the crawl space, there were moisture issues and open vents, which invite unwanted critters and debris.

The homeowner would like to sell the house in the near future, so he wanted to take steps to correct them. He contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company, products and services online. We then transformed the unhealthy area by installing various crawl space repair products.

The SmartPipe drainage system was installed to intercept any seeping water and drain it to the SmartSump sump pump. From there it will be pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home through a new discharge line. An IceGuard was also attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line just outside the house.

The crawl space was encapsulated with CleanSpace liner, which acts as a moisture and vapor barrier. It also helps insulate the crawl space.

Exterior vent covers were installed to seal the crawl space from outside air and pests. The exterior crawl space access point was not secure, so it was replaced by a more durable and safe EverLast door.

The owner was excited to have these permanent solutions installed so the home will be a healthier living environment not only for himself, but for future owners for many years to come, as well.

Upon purchasing a house in Springfield, OH, a homebuyer wanted to address and correct unhealthy conditions in the crawl space. He noticed water in this area underneath the house, and he wanted to make sure there were no other concerns.

He researched various repair companies and options, then contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us through online resources like Home Advisor.

WaterGuard and UltraSump Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Springfield, OH

After living in their house for more than 10 years, homeowners in Springfield, OH, were ready to address their leaking basement. Water seeped into the basement during every rain, resulting in streams and puddles of water.

The owners were hesitant to call another repair company after receiving a costly estimate several years ago. But they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we installed the perfect basement waterproofing solutions in their home.

These included the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system and UltraSump sump pump. If any water seeps into the basement, the WaterGuard system will intercept it and direct it to the UltraSump. From there it will safety be pumped out of the basement and away from the foundation through a sump pump discharge line. An IceGuard was attached to the exterior discharge line to prevent flooding if the line freezes or becomes blocked.

The owners also wanted to prevent mold and moisture issues in their home, so we installed the powerful SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This energy-efficient system cleans and filters the air, controls humidity, and eliminates odors.

Sewer Line Replacement in Springfield, OH

After living in their house for 25 years, homeowners in Springfield, OH, were concerned with possible problems with the sewer line serving their house. They researched various repair options and companies, and then contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Home Advisor.

Ohio Basement Authority Inspector Victor Golowin, who specializes in sewer and water line repair inspections, suggested the homeowners replace the sewer lateral outside the home.

After carefully excavating a section of the property to gain access to the existing sewer line, one of our expert crews replaced the older pipe with strong SDR 35 plastic sewer pipe.

The homeowners are pleased to have an updated and reliable sewer line.

Helical Piers Support Failing Foundation in Springfield, OH

Homeowners in Springfield, OH noticed that one of the outside walls of their 98-year-old home was bowing outward and this was causing the inside windows to separate from the walls. In the same room, but on a different wall, there were interior and exterior cracks.

Certified inspector, Corey Froelich, visited the home and determined that the one wall was sinking into soil that could no longer support the home's weight. This was causing foundation failure. He advised that they use helical piers to stabilize this wall.

The homeowners agreed and the crew came in to complete the project.

Two helical piers were installed under the bowing wall. These are steel splints that screw into the ground to lift and stabilize a house and stop foundation cracks. They were screwed into hard, undisturbed soil which will better support the home.

The homeowners' worries have been eased with this fairly simple fix to their foundation issues.

Water Leaks Through a Fireplace in South Vienna, OH

A lady in South Vienna, OH called us about water leaking from underneath the fireplace hearth in the basement after rains. As there was a television in front of the fireplace, this was a concern for the homeowner. For health reasons, she was also worried about the mold the moisture was causing.

One of certified inspectors visited this home and laid out the best plan of action for the situation. He suggested using WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump to get rid of the leakage and excess water.

First, WaterGuard was installed by our production crew. WaterGuard is an interior piping system which collects water from the ground and wall and carries it to a sump pump system. Unlike traditional pipe and gravel drainage systems, WaterGuard is resistant to clogs.

Next, the TripleSafe sump pump was installed. TripleSafe is a state-of-the-art sump pump system which includes two cast-iron pumps (one to backup the first) and a battery backup which keeps the system running in the event of a power outage. It also includes an airtight lid to keep dirt and debris out of the system, and a WaterWatch Alarm as an extra precaution to alert the homeowners if the pump stops working for any reason.

With these reliable repairs, the homeowner no longer has to worry about mold from water leakage, or water touching the wires of her television.

Fixing a Sinking Home in South Vienna, OH

A homeowner in South Vienna, OH, contacted us with urgent concerns that his house was sinking. He noted that the cement support block and jacks installed by a different company were sinking into softening clay from moisture exposure.

One of our inspectors came in and determined that our SmartJack system would be the best solution. This system would be installed by one of our production crews.

SmartJacks are steel supports used to stabilize and level the girders and floor joists in a crawl space. To address the soft soil issue, a cube of soil was excavated at each SmartJack location. The hole was filled with tightly-compacted crushed stone. A specially engineered footing was placed and leveled on top of the new, stable ground. The SmartJack was then put in place and tightened to immediately stabilize the sinking foundation.

The homeowner is happy knowing that his home is now stable and will not continue to sink into the soil.

Water Leaking in 1920's Farmhouse in South Vienna, OH

Homeowners in South Vienna, OH started experiencing dampness and wet floors in the basement of their farmhouse built in the 1920's. The basement was used for storage, so they were worried about their belongings becoming wet and waterlogged. Because of this, they contacted Ohio Basement Authority.

One of our certified inspectors visited the home and explained all of the waterproofing products we offer and how they would work together to create a dry living space.

The homeowners decided to go with CleanSpace Liner, SaniDry, TripleSafe, IceGuard, and WaterGuard.

The installation crew first installed CleanSpace Liner on the stone foundation walls which were causing a damper, cooler basement. This is a thick plastic liner which separates the basement from the moisture, mold, and microbes of the outside world.

Next, they installed the SaniDry XP Basement Air System. This is a dehumidifier unlike any other which filters and dries the air to create a drier, cleaner air flow.

Then, they installed the TripleSafe sump pump. This includes two cast-iron pumps that can work one at a time or together if the occasion calls for it. It also includes an UltraSump battery backup to keep the pump going in the event of a power outage. They attached IceGuard to the end of the discharge line outside to allow water to escape even if the line becomes frozen or blocked with ice and snow.

Finally, they installed WaterGuard which is an interior drainage system that is specially designed to collect water from the ground and walls and carry it to the sump pump system without risk of clogging.

The homeowners can now safely use their basement for storage and no longer have to worry about puddles of water on their floors.

Basement Waterproofing in South Charleston, OH

Homeowners in South Charleston, OH, were concerned about basement flooding and the efflorescence (white powder) being left behind from evaporated water.

Inspector Danny Pease visited the home to assess the situation. He explained the different waterproofing products we offer and discussed how each would work to permanently waterproof the basement.

The homeowners chose to have IceGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump, and the WaterGuard interior drainage system installed.

The production then began work on the project. First, they installed the TripleSafe sump pump system. This is a system with two types of backup pumps in case of emergency. It includes the main 1/3-horsepower cast iron pump, a stronger 1/2-horsepower pump, and an UltraSump battery backup in case of power loss.

Next, they removed a small amount of concrete around the perimeter of the basement and nestled WaterGuard drains in the channels. This drainage system is the only French drain system designed not to clog with mud and debris from soil under the floor. It collects water from the ground and wall with large holes and special flange.

Finally, they attached IceGuard to the downspout pipe to ensure that water will always have an exit route even if the pipe is frozen during cold periods.

The homeowners are excited about their newly waterproofed basement and are now able to turn it into a usable, dry space. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation in South Vienna, OH

A home in South Vienna, OH, had a very musty odor for two years. The homeowner was tired of the smell and worried about her health, so she called Ohio Basement Authority for a solution.

One of our certified inspectors looked at the crawl space and knew that this was the source of the problem. He explained the crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation products we have, and how these would eliminate the smell and create a healthier living space.

The homeowner decided to go with CleanSpace Liner, SmartPipe, SilverGlo, SaniDry CX, and SmartSump.

CleanSpace is a thick plastic liner used to isolate the crawl space from moisture, dirt, and pests.

SmartPipe is specially designed crawl space drainage system. It has holes on the top and front and lays under a filer fabric to accept water from the soil and the surface of the crawl space.

SilverGlo is a series of panels with high heat retention which insulates the crawl space. These make a home more comfortable and less expensive to own.

SaniDry CX is a basement air system designed to remove moisture from the air and filter it. The CX system is a smaller version which fits inside a crawl space.

SmartSump is a sump pump system which is specially designed for crawl spaces. It includes an airtight lid for easy access and so water sitting in the sump doesn't constantly evaporate back into the crawl space.

The installation crew came in and installed these products in three days. This short period eliminated the odor this homeowner had been dealing with for two years, and created a healthier environment for her and her family.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Enhances Health of a Home for New Owners in South Vienna, OH

He just purchased his house in South Vienna, OH, but the new homeowner was beginning to notice issues with moisture and dampness throughout the house. Concerned for his health and the health of his home, he wanted to address these issues right away.

After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority online, he contacted us to investigate the source. One of our experienced inspectors completed a thorough evaluation of the home and concluded the problems originated from the vented crawl space area under the home.

The homeowner was eager for one of our expert crews to encapsulate the crawl space in durable CleanSpace liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CleanSpace completely isolates the home from the earth and acts as a moisture and vapor barrier. SilverGlo panels also were installed on the walls to help further insulate the crawl space. Several vent covers were placed over the vents to prevent outside air, precipitation and pests from entering the crawl space.

The homeowner now has a healthier crawl space and home he will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

Helical Piers Installed for New Commercial Building in South Charleston, OH

A general contractor was working on planning adding a new building next to an existing manufacturing plant’s headquarters in South Charleston, OH. The contractor was concerned by the condition of the soil and potential foundation settlement, so he wanted to ensure any new build’s stability by consulting with another trusted company.

The contractor was confident in Ohio Basement Authority’s ability to help with a foundation stabilization project. After meeting with one of our highly trained inspectors, the contractor was eager for one of our experienced crews to install Helical Piers in the ground.

Helical Piers are typically used in a retrofit repair to stabilize and help raise settling homes, but they have other practical uses. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors are driven down to competent soil in order to offer the best stability for new structures that will be built on top of them.

The contractor was pleased this trustworthy installation has aided in ensuring the structural stability of the new building.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in New Carlisle, OH

A homeowner in New Carlisle, OH, recently inherited his parents’ house. He knew the home had some repair needs to be addressed. This included the leaking basement. Water seemed to seep inside during periods of heavy rain.

He would like to finish the basement, but did not want to have to battle with water and moisture issues. He contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through our website, and was eager to gain more knowledge about our permanent solutions.

We then installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system to catch any seeping water. This water is then directed to the existing sump pump and pumped out of the home. We also installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and eliminate odors.

The homeowner can rest easier knowing these reliable solutions have helped him create a healthier and safer living environment. 

SmartJacks Stabilize Sagging Floors in New Carlisle, OH

After living in their house for three years, homeowners in New Carlisle, OH, began to notice some potential structural issues with their house. Some sections of their floors were sloping and sagging. These can be signs of foundation settlement or a failing support system.

The latter seemed to be the case in the 100-year-old home, as it is common for homes to have outdated support systems. This concerned the homeowners, and they wanted to address any structural issues before they worsened.

They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and one of our inspectors completed a thorough evaluation of the home. After he presented the owners with various repair options, they were eager for one of our expert crews to permanently stabilize their home.

We did this by installing several SmartJacks in the crawl space underneath the house. The support beams were beginning to fail, resulting in sagging floors. But the heavy-duty, galvanized steel SmartJacks permanently stabilize the floor and floor joists. They also prevent further sagging and offer the best opportunity to lift the floors back to level. The SmartJacks will not rust or corrode. They also are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing the home will be a safer and structurally sound living environment for many years to come because of this reliable repair solution.

The homeowners are pleased to have an updated and more reliable sewer line.

Sealing Nasty Crawl Spaces in Enon, OH

After living in their house for eight years, homeowners in Enon, OH, started to notice problems with the crawl spaces underneath their house. They ventured into the crawl spaces and spotted standing water on the gravel floors, which seeped through the block foundation walls. These issues were creating unhealthy areas that also were affecting the rest of the house.

The owners wanted to have these problems fixed once and for all, so they started to research how to best address these issues. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding our website, and they were eager to learn more about how we could help them. One of our inspectors evaluated the condition of the crawl spaces, and he recommended some of our reliable repair solutions.

One of our crews waterproofed the crawl spaces by installing the SmartPipe drainage system in the floor to catch seeping water. This water is then directed to an UltraSump sump pump, and this powerful sump pump system pumps the water out of the crawl spaces and away from the home’s foundation. The crawl space was then encapsulated in thick and durable CleanSpace liner, which completely seals the crawl space from the earth.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create healthier crawl spaces, as well as a healthier home. 

Egress Window Installation in Springfield, OH

Even after living in their house for 30 years, homeowners in Springfield, OH, recently began to seriously think about the safety and resale value of their home. After speaking to a trusted realtor, they realized adding an egress window to their basement would be a great benefit to their home.

According to the International Code for One-and Two-Family Dwellings, all habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.

The homeowners researched how to address this issue, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online. After meeting with one of our inspectors who concurred with the necessity of an egress window, the owners were eager for one of our crews to block up an older, small basement window and install a new egress window system.

After excavating the area outside the new window location our crew then carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the newer, bigger window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame resists rust, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient.

A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window.

The homeowners are happy to have an updated, safer basement window system that enhances the safety, appearance, and future resale value of their house.

Egress Window Installation in New Carlisle, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in New Carlisle, OH, wanted to start using their basement for more than just storage. They plan to finish the basement and possibly turn it into livable space.

Before doing so, the owners knew they needed to tackle various improvements and repair projects. This included addressing the basement windows.

According to the International Code for One-and Two-Family Dwellings, all habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.

The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. They were eager for us to upgrade one of the older windows into a functional egress window.

After removing the smaller window and excavating the area outside the window, one of our expert crews carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the newer, bigger window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame is rust-resistant, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient.

A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window well.

The homeowners are happy to have an updated basement window system that enhances the safety and appearance of their home.

Exterior Drainage Upgrade Will Help Keep a Home Dry in Springfield, OH

After living in their house for a few months, homeowners in Springfield, OH, started to notice water seeping into various corners in the finished basement. The areas of seepage also happened to be areas where downspout conductor lines drained outside.

The homeowners wanted to fix this problem right away before any serious damage resulted. After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the downspout conductor lines. Based on our inspector’s recommendations, the homeowners were then eager for one of our crews to upgrade the exterior drainage system to keep water away from the foundation walls.

New reliable downspout conductor lines were installed on the property. These lines were buried underground and directed far away from the foundation walls to drain at the edge of the property. A LawnScape outlet also was installed to conceal the end of one of these lines in the yard.

The homeowners are pleased to have an updated exterior drainage system that will keep their property dry.

Water Line Replacement in Springfield, OH

Homeowners in Springfield, OH, have owned the house they use as a rental property for 10 years.
