Job Stories From Etna, OH
Egress Window Installed for Safety in Etna, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Etna, OH, decided they wanted to use their basement as additional bedroom space. Before transforming this area of the home, the owners knew they needed to make certain upgrades first.

According to the International Residential Code, all habitable spaces and sleeping rooms, including basements, must have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.

The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. After meeting with one of or inspectors, they were eager for us to install a functional egress window system.

After excavating the area outside where the new window system was to be installed, one of our expert crews carefully cut into the foundation wall to make room for the 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.

Homeowners in Etna, OH, were preparing to sell their house. Before doing so, they knew they needed to complete various repair projects.

After finding information on Home Advisor about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the wall. Our inspector then presented the owners with one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several Carbon Fiber supports to permanently stabilize the wall. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to hold it in its current position. These supports also protect the wall from any further cracking or inward bowing.

PowerBrace Beams Stabilize Cracking, Tilting Foundation Wall in Etna, OH

As they prepared to move into their house, new homeowners in Etna, OH, wanted to make sure the structure would be a safe and sound living environment. They noticed one of the foundation walls was cracking and slightly tilting inward, so they wanted to have these issues fixed before moving into the house and making it their own.

They started to research how to best address these problems, and they were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the wall, and our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several PowerBrace beams on the problematic foundation wall. These steel beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists. The beams are then plumbed against the wall as level as possible, and the bottom of the beams are anchored to the floor. These heavy-duty beams are zinc-plated beams so they are protected from corrosion and damage, unlike the other metal and wooden supports that were failing to stabilize the walls. Another unique feature with this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to potentially improve and straighten the wall over time.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be a safe and stable living environment because of this trustworthy repair solution.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Etna, OH

After one year of living in her house, a homeowner in Etna, OH, began to notice problems she suspected stemmed from her crawl space. She was frustrated with her home’s air quality, she saw silverfish and mice in the home, and the open and leaking crawl space vents were also concerning.

Hoping to find a permanent solution to control the earth’s moisture and have a healthier home, the homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through our website.

We then helped her create a healthier home by encapsulating the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. This thick liner completely isolates the home environment from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. We also placed external vent covers over the vents to completely seal the crawl space from unwanted outside pests.

The homeowner was pleased this reliable permanent solution was installed so her crawl space, as well as the rest of her home, will be healthier for many years to come.

House built in 1910 and does not have a sump or drain in the basement/cellar. The left rear wall is in disrepair and water is currently coming in and flooding the area. Floor is combination concrete and dirt but it is not a crawl space. The wall needs repaired and the property grading needs assessed. Possibly more than one wall is in need of repair due to the age of the foundation.

I am wanting to finish my basement, while down there and inspecting the walls I noticed what appears to be shrinkage cracks but one of them I can see sunlight through. I would like these cracks examined to see if they need repairing prior to continuing any work.
Vicinity of Runkle Drive in Etna
My husband and I bought a cottage at Buckeye Lake, OH that is not on a cement foundation, but on pilings. The interior of the house smells very musty. We know we have foundation issues that must be replaced based on the home inspection. We would like to understand if you could fix the foundation issues and do an encapsulation process to stop the moisture issues under the house.

I have a poured concrete foundation under my 3 year old house. There is a shrinkage crack near the inside corner of the garage. The pressure behind the wall is causing it to lean inward a little more each year. It's about 1/4 inch wide at top.
