Homeowners in Hebron, OH, were excited to move into their house and make it their own. But they were aware of some issues that needed to be repaired first. Water leaked into the basement during heavy rains, and several areas of the walls were cracking and tilting inward.
Hoping to fix these issues once and for all, the owners began to research how to best address these problems. They found information online about Ohio Basement Authority, and they were eager 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 reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews then worked to complete these projects. They first stabilized the foundation walls with PowerBrace beams and Carbon Fiber supports. The Carbon Fiber straps, which firmly adhere to the walls to hold them in their current positions, were used on the walls with less cracking and movement. Several PowerBrace beams were placed on the more severe walls to not only stabilize them, but to help improve their conditions. These beams can be tightened during dry seasons to help straighten the walls.
The basement was then waterproofed with the WaterGuard drainage system, TripleSafe sump pump, SaniDry XP dehumidifier, and exterior IceGuard attachments. The sub-floor WaterGuard system catches seeping water from the walls and floor, and this water is then directed to drain into the TripleSafe system to be pumped out of the house. IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and a SaniDry XP dehumidifier also was installed in the basement to help improve the air quality.
The owners can rest easier knowing they will have a safer and healthier living environment because of these reliable repairs.
