A homeowner in Washington Court House, OH, noticed a lot of moisture and water leakage in her basement. Her store-bought dehumidifier was not working as well as she hoped, so she called us to have a look.
Inspector Jim Pierpoint suggested installed WaterGuard, a SuperSump sump pump, and CleanSpace Liner. The homeowner decided to go with Jim's recommendations.

This also included an UltraSump battery backup which will keep the new sump pump running if it stops due to an electricity outage.
Then, they installed WaterGuard around the perimeter. This is an interior drain system designed not to clog with dirt and sediment from under the basement floor. It has holes on the sides to collect water from all directions, and a flange at the top to accept water running down the walls.
Finally, they installed CleanSpace Liner which acts as a moisture barrier between the basement and outside. This thick plastic liner allows water to run behind it and into the WaterGuard below. It also keeps out moisture and critters, and it's anti-microbial.

A Jeffersonville, OH homeowner's daughter was interested in moving into her parents' home and possibly selling it in the future. She called Ohio Basement Authority because she was concerned about cracks in the basement walls. She had also contacted a structural engineer who took a look at the problem and said that the walls needed to be reinforced, and the stones needed to be stabilized to prevent them from shifting further.
One of our certified inspectors visited the home to examine the problems and determine the best plan of action. He decided that Geo-Lock Wall Anchors with a channel assembly would be the best bet. At the customers request, he also agreed to do a wire and parge for cosmetic reasons and to keep the stones from shifting.
Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are heavy-duty earth anchors which are embedded into stable soil a length away from the foundation wall. These are attached to steel wall plates via galvanized steel rods which are tightened to pull the anchor and plate closer together and, thus, pull the wall back into place. Geo-Lock Channel Anchors involve attaching the wall plates to vertical steel bars which fasten into the concrete basement floor.
A wire and parge was conducted by placing a wire mesh over the wall and covering it with a type of plaster. It made the wall smoother, more aesthetically pleasing, and will keep the stones in place.
The homeowners' daughter is happy with the results and may consider staying there for a little longer now that these reliable repairs have been made.
