A homeowner in Howard, OH, has lived in his house for seven years. Recently, however, he started to notice a worsening problem outside the house. A retaining wall at the back of the attached garage was starting to crack and tilt.

Concerned with the structural integrity of his property, the owner wanted to have the issue fixed before serious damage resulted.

Our inspector then recommended the perfect repair solution.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Howard, OH

After living in a house for a few months, a tenant in Howard, OH, started to notice issues with water seepage in the basement. He promptly notified the owner, and the owner began to research how to address this problem to give his tenant and his family a safe and healthy home.

The owner came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and he was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. He met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the basement and then recommended our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

We installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system in the sub-floor to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the existing sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement. While the owner opted to keep the existing sump pit, we replaced the pump and upgraded it to a 1/3 hp Zoeller® pump.

The owner and tenant are pleased these solutions were installed to help create a safe and dry living environment.

Updating a Home's Exterior Drainage System in Howard, OH

After living in her house for a few years, a homeowner in Howard, OH, recently began to notice water seeping into the basement. This seemed to happen during heavy rains in one corner in particular. A downspout conductor line also happened to be outside this corner and could very well have been contributing to the leakage.

After a loved one’s do-it-yourself attempts, the homeowner wanted to seek professional advice. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and she then met with one of our inspectors. The inspector recommended updating the exterior drainage system to help prevent water from the gutter downspouts from leaking inside the house.

One of our crews then installed new downspout conductor lines on the property. These lines were buried underground and directed to drain water away from the home and out to a culvert at the edge of the property.

The homeowner is happy to have an updated drainage system that will help keep water out of and away from her home.

Carbon Fiber and Downspout Line Installation in Howard, OH

A homeowner in Howard, OH, called us when she noticed stair-step cracks in her basement walls. She also wanted to have new downspout lines installed under her sidewalk.

Inspector Corey Froelich visited the home to look at the problems. He explained our various support systems and he and the owner decided on Carbon Fiber straps as the solution.

The production crew came in a adhered the Carbon Fiber to the walls. This is a very durable material which is almost impossible to stretch. It can be used to keep walls from bowing further inward.

Then, they excavated an area under the sidewalk for the new downspout lines. They placed the pipes to drain into the street to prevent water leakage onto the lawn near the foundation. This type of leakage could cause water to leak into the basement through the foundation walls.

The homeowner is no longer worried about the cracks in her walls, and has durable downspout lines for years to come.
