Job Stories From Jackson, OH
Waterproofing a Wet Church Basement in Jackson, OH

After noticing water leaking into and starting to damage the church basement, the pastor of a church in Jackson, OH, wanted to have the issue fixed as soon as possible. The basement is used for storage, but the various items in the basement could be ruined by seeping water, moisture or mold growth.

The pastor and church committee previously had one company try an exterior repair method of excavating the soil outside of the seeping walls and then sealing the walls. This method did not work, as the basement continued to leak.

Eager for a permanent solution, the pastor and church committee contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company from a happy customer. Once they met with one of our inspectors, the pastor was eager for one of our crews to install some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

These included the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain drainage systems which intercept seeping water and direct it to the UltraSump sump pump system. The UltraSump is equipped with two powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery. This ensures the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement, even when the power goes out.

An IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to allow water to continue to escape the line even if the line freezes or becomes blocked. This discharge line was tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property, and a LawnScape outlet was placed at the end of the line to camouflage it in the yard.

The pastor and parishioners are happy to have a safe and dry environment because of these trustworthy solutions.

Wall Anchors Stabilize a Cracking, Tilting Wall in Jackson, OH

During the 20 years he has lived in his house, a homeowner in Jackson, OH, noticed structural issues in his basement only getting worse over time. One of the foundation walls was cracking, and it also appeared to be slightly tilting inward.

While these are common signs of foundation wall failure, these problems will result in more structural and safety hazards the longer they are neglected, as well as costly repairs. The homeowner wanted to fix these problems once and for all.

The owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online, and he was eager to meet with one of our expert inspectors to see exactly how we could help him. After evaluating the condition of the problematic foundation wall, our inspector recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

We installed several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors on the failing foundation wall. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors not only reinforce the wall, their unique design also allows them to be tightened for wall improvement. These anchors also offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing his home will be a safer living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.

Multiple Repairs Improve the Health and Safety of a Home in Jackson, OH

After living in their house for 20 years, homeowners in Jackson, OH, recently began to notice various glaring problems in their basement. Water seemed to leak inside through cracks in the walls, resulting in puddles on the floor.

The homeowners wanted to fix these issues before any serious damage resulted, so they began to research how to best address them. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors to see exactly how we could help them. After evaluating the condition of the leaking basement and problematic foundation walls, our inspector presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews installed these products, which included the WaterGuard interior drainage system and SuperSump sump pump. Any water that seeps through the walls and floor will be intercepted by the WaterGuard system and directed to the reliable SuperSump to be pumped out of the basement. An IceGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.

Several Carbon Fiber supports were placed on the less severely cracking wall, and PowerBrace beams were installed on the other with significant failure. Both of these solutions permanently reinforce the walls where they are installed and protect the walls from any further cracking or inward tilting. The Carbon Fiber straps hold the wall in its current position, and the PowerBrace beams can be tightened to help straighten and improve the wall.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these various repair projects have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Jackson, OH

During the two years that he has lived in his house, a homeowner in Jackson, OH, has not known what it’s like to have a dry basement. Water always seemed to leak inside during periods of heavy rain. This resulted in puddles and visible water damage.

The homeowner had had enough of dealing with the wet basement, and he wanted to address these problems before any serious damages occurred. While researching how to best address these issues, he came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online. He then contacted us for assistance and met with one of our expert inspectors. Then, he was eager for one of our experienced repair crews to install some of our reliable basement waterproofing products.

These included the WaterGuard interior drainage system and SuperSump sump pump. The sub-floor WaterGuard system collects seeping water from the walls and floor, and then directs this water to the SuperSump. The SuperSump then pumps this water out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation.

An IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this discharge line was tied into a new downspout conductor line that was installed on the property. This line was buried underground and directed to drain water near the edge of the property. A LawnScape was used to camouflage the end of this line.

The homeowner can rest easier knowing these reliable solutions will keep his basement dry even during heavy rains.

One of my basement walls is cracking and in need of repair. I would like to schedule a free estimate for repair. I am also interested in knowing whether the block can be redone instead of reinforcement repairs. Thank you.

Settling and water in a basement. We need advice on what to do to correct the issues along with a rough idea of the cost.

Just purchased a home. Getting quotes for crawl space encapsulation.
Vicinity of Four Mile Road in Jackson
Our basement is roughly 65 x 35. It is a walk out basement built into a slope. It seems to be leaking from the floor, all around the walls. When it rains their can be quiet a bit of water. We were told that all of our drainage under the floor is probably bad, and that is probably causing all the water. I'm wanting to hopefully have a dry basement, with no more water getting in! We are hoping to start finishing it as soon as we can get it waterproofed.

Hello, I have multiple foundation cracks which I've recently noticed are growing in length and width. I need a quote. Thanks!
Vicinity of Portsmouth Street in Jackson
My house is around 100 years old, it has all brick walls. Water enters from the base of the walls. I don't deal with flooding because floors are sloped towards a floor drain, but its the nuisance of dealing with wet floors during the wetter months of the year. It doesn't leak under a normal rainfall but does when ground gets saturated and during heavy down pours that last a while.

Vicinity of Rice Road in Jackson
Need a SaniDry CX to finish craw space.
Vicinity of Pearl Street in Jackson
Under contract on a commercial property in Jackson, Ohio. Full lower level with some moisture issues that were created, according to inspector, by faulty gutters, downspouts and drainage. I have contacted a contractor to correct those issues. However, the water problems over time have created some minor issues with the foundation itself and has created the need for mold treatment and some reinforcement. It is important for the future of the business that the lower level is in a condition where it can be finished. Thus, I would like an estimate to determine what is necessary to ultimately achieve that goal.
