Upon moving into their house, homeowners in southeast Columbus, OH, noticed the partial crawl space contained some potential health hazards. There was no insulation on the block walls, and the plastic liner covering the gravel floor was failing.

They wanted to make sure their home would always be a healthy living environment, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV commercials.

After we removed the debris from the crawl space, we encapsulated this area in bright and durable CleanSpace liner. This liner completely isolates the crawl space and serves as a moisture and vapor barrier. It is also strong enough to crawl on, and helps create an additional functional area that could be used for storage. SilverGlo insulation panels were also installed on the walls.

The homeowners were excited to have these permanent crawl space repair solutions installed so the crawl space, as well as the rest of the house, will be healthier for many years to come!

They have lived in their house for almost 30 years, and during the last several years homeowners in Columbus, OH, have been monitoring a structural problem that has only gotten worse. Several areas of the garage walls were showing signs of failure in the form of various cracks and gaps between the blocks. This latter issue indicates foundation settlement.

Concerned with the safety and stability of their garage, the homeowners were motivated to have it fixed once and for all. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. Once they met with one of our inspectors who assessed the garage’s condition, the owners were eager for one of our crews to install the perfect solution.

We installed a total of 12 Helical Piers underneath the settling foundation walls. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel piers were mechanically driven down to competent soil and attached to foundation brackets on the home’s footing. These piers permanently stabilize the foundation walls, prevent any more settlement, and offer the best opportunity to lift the settling areas back to level.

The homeowners are happy to now have a repaired and reinforced garage.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Columbus, OH

After living in their house for a few years, homeowners in Columbus, OH, recently started to notice a problem with water intrusion in their basement. They have thought about finishing the basement, but they don’t want to have to deal with the effects of leaking water.

After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners wanted 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 basement. Our inspector then recommended some of our basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then installed these trustworthy products. They waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard drainage system, UltraSump sump pump, and exterior IceGuard attachment. The WaterGuard system catches seeping water from the walls and floor and then directs it to drain to the UltraSump system. This system features two powerful pumps inside its liner, along with an external backup battery. The UltraSump pumps water out of the basement and away from the home through a discharge line, and an IceGuard was attached to this line to prevent flooding if the line freezes or is blocked.

The homeowners are happy these solutions were installed to help keep their home safe and dry.

Durable Wall Anchors Permanently Stabilize Cracking, Bowing Foundation Walls in Columbus, OH

While they have lived in their house for two years, it wasn’t until recently that homeowners in Columbus, OH, noticed some concerning structural issues. Two of the foundation walls were cracking and bowing inward.

These are common signs of wall failure, but they will result in serious safety hazards the longer they are neglected. That is why the homeowners wanted to address these problems and remedy them as soon as possible. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and we installed some of our reliable foundation repair products.

We installed several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors on one of the problematic foundation walls. These heavy-duty galvanized steel anchors permanently reinforce the foundation wall, and they offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall back to level.

We also installed another type of anchor on a more severely cracking and bowing wall. Three Geo-Lock Channel Anchors were installed on this wall. This system functions the same way as the other Geo-Lock Anchors, but the only difference is the channel anchors are mounted to the floor for extra support.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repair methods have helped them create a safe and stable living environment.

Complete CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System transforms Columbus, OH, crawl space into healthy, usable space

A homeowner in Columbus, OH, is frequently in her crawl space and uses the area for storage. After noticing water leaking from the wall, she wanted to address the problem before it worsened.

With all of these products, both the walls and floor are insulated. This energy-efficient solution allows the homeowner to fully utilize this now healthy and dry space.
