Water Leakage and Bowing Walls in Sunbury, OH

A homeowner in Sunbury, OH who runs a small barbershop out of his 27 year-old home became concerned when water started coming through the walls and they were bowing inward. This put a damper on his business, so he brought Ohio Basement Authority in to fix the problems. 

The water problems were repaired with the installation of a SuperSump System, IceGuard, and WaterGuard. The bowing walls, a sign of foundation failure, were mended with Carbon Fiber Straps. 

The SuperSump System is a powerful cast-iron sump pump which can pump 2,200 gallons of water per hour. IceGuard was attached to the sump pump discharge line to keep the system working even if the pipe freezes. The WaterGuard System is an interior below floor drain which drains water from the basement into the sump pump.

The bowing walls are now secured with Carbon Fiber Straps, which are made of a material extremely resistant to stretching under tension.

Basement Waterproofing in Ostrander, OH

A home in Ostrander, OH, had water that was beginning to enter a walk-out basement door. Also, water was not able to drain from the roof and perimeter drain fast enough during heavy rains. The basement had inner and outer perimeter drains with natural drainage. After having water in the entire basement, the homeowners decided they needed professional help.

A certified inspector from Ohio Basement Authority came in and determined the best route for fixing these problems. After this was decided, the installation crew came in and began by installing a SuperSump sump pump including an UltraSump battery backup. This is a high-powered sump pump system which can pump 2,200 gallons of water per hour. The UltraSump provides backup and keeps the sump pump working in the event of a power outage.

Then, the crew installed a TrenchDrain in front of the basement door that was experiencing flooding. This is a uniquely designed drain which spans the width of the doorway. It has a grated opening which fits snugly on top to prevent tripping hazards.

Next, they installed several new discharge lines to give all the water the homeowners were experiencing a place to go. One line led to an existing city catch basin, and two lines led to new LawnScape Outlets in the yard. These outlets let water out onto the surface while camouflaging the end of the buried pipe and eliminating tripping and lawnmower hazards.

Carbon Fiber and PowerBrace Beams Re-Stabilize Walls in Ostrander, OH

Homeowners in Ostrander, OH, began experiencing cracks and bowling in their walls, and noticed that their kitchen floor was slightly tilting. They built the house in 1976, so they were able to watch this worsen over time and knew it wouldn't fix itself. 

They called Ohio Basement Authority to address their concerns. The inspector established that these issues were due to foundation failure.

The installation crew came in and installed nine carbon fiber straps and four PowerBrace supports to re-stabilize the effected walls.

Carbon Fiber is a material that is almost impossible to stretch due to its high tensile strength, which is resistance to break under tension. It can be adhered to concrete walls to keep them from bending or bowing further inward.

The PowerBrace supports are zinc-plated steel beams which are custom-fit to the wall height and secured with brackets anchored to the basement floor. These can be tightened over time to reverse wall failure.

The homeowners are comforted knowing that these reliable repairs will keep their foundation sturdy and supported for years to come.

Repairing an Old, Nasty, Wet Basement in Ashley, OH

A homeowner is Ashley, OH called us and described her 100-year-old basement as "old, nasty, and wet." One of her crumbling stone walls leaked water and mud when it rained, and she was concerned that the wall might even be giving out. As she was trying to sell the home, she knew potential buyers would not be happy with the condition of the basement.

Certified inspector, Jim Pierpoint, visited the home for a free estimate and inspection. He suggested using CleanSpace on the problematic walls, adding a SuperSump, and installing WaterGuard.

The homeowner decided to go with all of these suggestions. While she was experiencing some foundation issues as well, she chose not to repair those because she believed they were not as urgent.

The production crew, led by foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz, first put in the SuperSump sump pump system. This is a super powerful 1/2 horsepower cast-iron pump that includes an airtight floor drain and a WaterWatch Alarm as a precaution in case there is a risk of overflow.

Then, they installed WaterGuard which is an interior drainage system. Its unique trapezoidal shape sits right on top of the basement's concrete footer, and this prevents it from becoming clogged with soil from the ground below. It has holes and a flange to catch water from the wall, ground, and floor.

Finally, they installed CleanSpace around the three earthbound walls to protect the basement from outside elements. This is a thick, plastic liner that allows water to run behind it and into the WaterGuard system below.
