Job Stories From Johnstown, OH
Multiple Repair Projects Improve the Safety, Health of a Home in Johnstown, OH

After living in their house for one year, homeowners in Johnstown, OH, were motivated to tackle some projects to improve the health and safety of their living environment. The owners knew they could count on Ohio Basement Authority for the perfect solutions because the previous owner recommended us.

The owners then met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of their basement. He pointed out areas of water intrusion, cracking walls, evidence of settlement, and an unsightly, unhealthy crawl space. After discussing their goals with repair projects, our inspector then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing, foundation repair, crawl space repair and radon mitigation solutions.

One of our crews then stabilized the settling sections with Push Piers and reinforced the less severely cracking walls with Carbon Fiber supports. The basement was waterproofed with the WaterGuard interior drainage system, and the crawl space was encapsulated in CleanSpace.

All of these solutions work together to ensure the home’s safety, stability and health, and the owners now have peace of mind knowing their living environment is protected.

Fixing and Protecting a Cracking Wall in Johnstown, OH

After living in their house for almost five years, homeowners in Johnstown, OH, noticed a problem in their basement was getting worse. One of the foundation walls was cracking and also appeared to be slightly tilting inward. These are common signs of foundation wall failure, and they wanted to address it before any serious damage occurred.

During their search for repairs, the owners came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website and they were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They then met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the foundation. Our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then permanently stabilized the wall by installing several Carbon Fiber supports on it. These heavy-duty straps firmly adhere to the wall to hold it in its current position. These straps also protect the wall from any further cracking or inward bowing. Their dark appearance may not be aesthetically pleasing, but their low profile allows them to easily be concealed by basement finishing materials.

The homeowners can confidently remodel and finish their basement knowing this trustworthy repair project has helped them create a safe and stable living environment.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement for New Homeowners in Johnstown, OH

As they moved into their house, new homeowners in Johnstown, OH, noticed a problem in the basement. Water appeared to be leaking inside and leaving damage on the walls and floor. This greatly concerned the owners, and they wanted to have the issue fixed once and for all.

As they began to research potential repairs, the owners came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website. They decided to contact us and were eager to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the problematic basement. Our inspector then suggested some of our reliable waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard drainage system and TripleSafe sump pump, as well as exterior drainage lines and IceGuard and LawnScape attachments.

The basement’s perimeter was excavated in order to properly install the WaterGuard system. WaterGuard is designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the TripleSafe sump pump. The three powerful pumps inside its large liner, as well as external backup battery, will always work to keep water out of the basement.

The water is then pumped out of the basement through discharge lines. These lines also were tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property. IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked lines, and LawnScapes were used to camouflage the ends of the discharge lines in the yard.

The owners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy solutions will be protecting their home.

Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Johnstown, OH

After a couple in Johnstown, OH, had their son's basement repaired by Ohio Basement Authority and were pleased with the results, they decided it was time to fix their own wet basement. They also were concerned about a few foundation wall cracks.

One of our certified inspectors visited the home to assess the problem and damage. He explained the waterproofing products we offer, pricing, and the installation process. After that, he provided the homeowners with an estimate and it was up to them whether or not they wanted to have the work done.

The homeowners decided to have everything the inspector recommended installed. The products included: Carbon Fiber, IceGuard, LawnScape, and WaterGuard.

Carbon Fiber is a material with a high-tensile strength, which means it is nearly impossible to stretch under tension. It often is used to reinforce cracked and bowing foundation walls to prevent them from failing more. This was the case when they were installed in this Johnstown home.

IceGuard and LawnScape are both small add-ons for a waterproofing system. IceGuard connects to the sump pump discharge line and downspout to allow water to pass through even if the pipe freezes. IceGuard works even if it is buried under a foot of ice and snow. LawnScape is a grated piece which connects to the end of the discharge line. It camouflages the end of the pipe when it is necessary to have it end in a homeowner's yard, and prevents tripping and lawnmower hazards.

WaterGuard is a interior drainage system unlike any other. It is comprised of a serious of trapezoidal drains which sit on the concrete footer at a slight angle to allow water to drain into the sump pump system. There are large holes in the side and a flange which allow the drains to capture water from the ground, floor and walls.

The homeowners are happy with the results and no longer need to worry about water in their basement or cracks in their foundation walls.

An Old Home in Johnstown, OH, is Permanently Waterproofed

Upon moving into their house, new homeowners in Johnstown, OH, were alerted to potential problems in the basement. The 130-year-old home with stone foundation walls and dirt floors had issues with moisture and water intrusion. This concerned the homeowners, so they wanted to take the proper steps to ensure their home’s health and safety.

The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads, and we installed many reliable basement waterproofing solutions that will always keep their home dry.

These included the WaterGuard and TrenchDrain drainage systems, as well as two UltraSump sump pump systems in the large basement. IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and LawnScapes were placed on the ends of these lines to camouflage them on the property. A SaniDry XP dehumidifier also was installed to clean the air and control humidity.

CleanSpace also was used to cover the areas of the basement with stone walls and dirt floors. Not only does this liner help smooth out rough surfaces and improve the basement’s appearance, it also helps keep water out of the basement and direct it to the waterproofing system.

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

Basement Stabilization and Waterproofing in Johnstown, OH

During the last few years of living in their house, homeowners in Johnstown, OH, have been monitoring structural issues in their basement. The foundation walls were cracking and bowing inward, indicating the failure of the walls.

Because they are trying to sell the house, the homeowners want to make sure it will be a structurally stable living environment. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and we installed one of our many reliable foundation repair products.

A total of 22 Geo-Lock Channel Anchors were installed throughout the basement to permanently reinforce the foundation walls. These heavy-duty galvanized steel anchors also offer the best opportunity to straighten the walls.

To address and prevent any leaking water, we also installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system. This sub-floor system intercepts any seeping water and drains it to the existing sump pump system. We also installed new downspout conductor lines on the property, and attached a LawnScape at the end of the line.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing the house will be a safer living environment for the next owners.

The owner is happy to have an updated exterior drainage system that will help keep her home dry.

Helical Piers Permanently Stabilize a Home's Settling Foundation Wall in Johnstown, OH

A homeowner fell in love with a charming older home in Johnstown, OH, 20 years ago, and has enjoyed living there ever since. During that time she noticed a section of the floor was not level, and seemed to be getting slightly worse. This is a common sign of foundation settlement.

She wanted to get to the root of the problem and fix it, so she researched various repair options and companies. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us on our website, and then one of our certified inspectors completed a thorough evaluation at the 150-year-old home. He recommended the perfect permanent repair solution, and one of our expert crews installed three heavy-duty Helical Piers underneath the problematic, settling areas of the foundation.

These durable galvanized steel piers were mechanically driven down to competent soil and attached to heavy-duty foundation brackets on the home’s footing. These piers permanently stabilize the foundation, help prevent further settlement, and offer the best opportunity to lift the settling section back to level.

Encapsulation with CleanSpace Transforms a Nasty Crawl Space in Johnstown, OH

Homeowners in Johnstown, OH, have lived in their house since it was built almost 20 years ago. They go into the crawl space under the house a few times a year, and lately they have noticed some problems they were ready to address.

The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads, and we installed several crawl space repair products to completely transformed the nasty area into a healthier one.

The debris and insulation was removed, and the entire crawl space was encapsulated in durable CleanSpace liner which isolates the area from the earth and acts as a moisture and vapor barrier.

Two SmartDrains were installed in the vast crawl space to identify plumbing leaks, and a SaniDry CX dehumidifier was installed to purify the air and control humidity. Vent covers were also installed outside the home to seal the crawl space from outside air and pests.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing the crawl space, as well as the rest of the home, will be healthier for many more years to come.

CleanSpace and SilverGlo Improve an Unhealthy Crawl Space in Johnstown, OH

After removing the debris and insulation, we completely encapsulated the crawl space in durable CleanSpace liner. This bright, heavy-duty liner isolates the area from the earth, and acts as a moisture and vapor barrier.

Drainage matting was placed on the floor underneath the CleanSpace liner to enhance its durability, and energy-efficient SilverGlo insulation panels were added to the walls.

Recently bought a 1950's ranch home in Johnstown. During heavy rains last week I noticed water in three spots in the basement. 3/4" of the basement is finished. In spot 1 is in the unfinished laundry/HVAC room minimal amount, less than a half of cup. Spot two is in the storage room, "unfinished area" roughly 3-4 cups worth on the floor. I then pulled the carpet to check the floor in the finished area, which lead to spot 3 in the corner of the room, it doesnt appear much comes through but i imagine this has been a slow leaky spot for awhile, the baseboard has a water stain roughly 1/2" high, and 4" in length. The carpet was damp to touch roughly 4" out from the corner. The house does not have a sump pump.
