Job Stories From Lakeview, OH
Push Piers Stabilize a Settling Home in Lakeview, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Lakeview, OH, began to notice potential structural problems with their home. They spotted various cracks and gaps along a couple of the exterior foundation walls, which are common signs of foundation failure and settlement.

The homeowners plan to live in the house for many more years, so having a safe and structurally sound living environment is very important to them. Hoping to address these issues once and for all, the owners began to research potential repairs. After gleaning information from Ohio Basement Authority’s website, they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them.

The owners then met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the foundation walls. He also ventured into the crawl space underneath the house, and he noted that the same problematic walls also had interior cracks and gaps. Our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our expert crews then installed several Push Piers underneath the settling foundation walls. After digging down to expose the foundation’s footing, heavy-duty steel brackets were secured. Rugged steel tubes were then driven through the brackets to competent soils. The weight of the house was then transferred through the piers to load-bearing strata. This ensures no further settlement will occur, and the home’s walls can be lifted back to level.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair project has helped ensure the safety and stability of their forever home.

Waterproofing a Leaking Crawl Space in Lakeview, OH

Her house has been handed down within her family for many years, so maintaining a safe and healthy living environment is very important to a homeowner in Lakeview, OH.

She rarely goes into the crawl space, but when the homeowner recently ventured into this area underneath the 86-year-old home, she was shocked by what she saw. The dirt crawl space was full of standing water that seeped inside.

Hoping to address this problem right away and find a permanent solution, the owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. We then waterproofed the crawl space with our reliable repair products.

These included the SmartPipe drainage system and SmartSump sump pump. If any water seeps into the crawl space, it will be intercepted by the SmartPipe system and directed to the SmartSump sump pump. The water is then safely pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home.

Additional installations included spray foam insulation that was applied to the band joists, and exterior vent covers to prevent outside air, precipitation and pests from entering the crawl space.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing her home will have a dry crawl space because of these trustworthy products.

Updated Exterior Drain Lines Will Keep a Home Dry in Lakeview, OH

He has lived in his house for almost 10 years, but it wasn’t until recently that a homeowner in Lakeview, OH, noticed water in his basement. Water seemed to seep inside near a corner of the basement, and downspout conductor lines happened to be outside this same area of the basement.

The homeowner wanted to address this issue with a reliable company, and he was eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through resources like the Better Business Bureau.

After meeting with one of our experienced inspectors, the owner was equally excited for one of our expert crews to update his exterior drainage system by installing thick, reliable pipe for the downspout conductor lines. The lines were buried underground and directed to drain into dry wells at the edge of the property.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing the upgraded discharge lines will help keep his home dry for many more years.

Stabilizing Sagging Floors in Lakeview, OH

Shortly after moving into their house, homeowners in Lakeview, OH, began to notice potential structural problems in the home. One section of the floor was sagging, which is a sign of failing structural supports.

Hoping to permanently stabilize the floor and raise it back to level, the homeowners were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. They met with one of our experienced inspectors who pointed out the wooden supports in the crawl space were indeed failing to properly support the floor above.

Along with replacing a wooden support beam with a durable structural steel I-Beam, we installed several SmartJacks in the crawl space. Unlike typical jack posts, the heavy-duty SmartJacks are made of galvanized steel to enhance their durability. This also makes them rust and corrosion resistant. The SmartJacks permanently stabilize the above floors and help raise them back to the proper level. They also are designed to prevent further settling. But if any settling occurs, the SmartJacks can easily be adjusted.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable repairs have helped them create a safer and structurally sound living environment.

Repairing Foundation in Crawl Space of Lakeview, OH Home

When a homeowner in Lakeview, OH noticed that some of the concrete blocks were shifting and "popping out," he knew there was a problem. He contacted us for help, and noted that the hallway floor above the crawl space made a lot of noise when he walked on it.

He set up an appointment with one of our certified inspectors, who thoroughly evaluated the crawl space to determine how we could help.

He suggested using SmartJack supports and wall anchors. SmartJack is a system of steel columns which are put in place to stabilize sagging floors. They are set up on specially engineered gravel which transfers the weight of the home onto more solid ground. Geo-Lock Channel Anchor are heavy-duty earth anchors which are embedded into stable soil on the outside of the foundation wall. These are attached to steel wall plates with long, galvanized rods. When these rods are tightened, it pulls the foundation back toward its original position.

After the homeowner agreed to these repairs, an appointment was set up with one of our expert installation crews. They came in and installed these products within one day. In this short time period, the homeowner’s concerns were alleviated, and he can rest assured that these dependable repairs will keep he and his family safe for years to come.
