UltraSump Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Lewis Center, OH

UltraSump Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Lewis Center, OH

UltraSump Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Lewis Center, OH UltraSump Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Home Dry in Lewis Center, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, wanted to look into upgrading their basement waterproofing system. They questioned the effectiveness of their current sump pump system, and they wanted to make sure their home would be properly protected.

After finding information about Ohio Basement Authority through resources like Angie’s List, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with Inspector Jiovanni Valentino who took a look at the existing sump pump system. The older pump and pit showed signs of corrosion and potential failure. While the system was tucked in a closet and had a lid to cover the pit, this lid was partially open. Objects could fall into the pit and damage the pumping equipment, and water could easily evaporate back into the basement and cause additional problems. Radon also could enter through the openings in the system.

Jiovanni recommended one of our many reliable sump pump systems, and the homeowners were motivated to move forward with the upgrade.

Foreman Nate Klingenberger and his crew then replaced the older sump pump with the UltraSump Battery Backup System. The UltraSump features a powerful 1/3 hp cast iron pump with a metal float switch inside the heavy-duty polyethylene liner. It also is equipped with a DC pump, charging system and battery, and will automatically turn on if the primary pump fails to operate. The UltraSump can pump out more than 11,000 gallons of water on a new, fully-charged battery. The back-up battery also enables the system to continue to operate even in the event of a power outage. Also, the system was installed inside the larger TripleSafe liner to allow for easy future upgrades.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their home will always be protected by this trustworthy solution.

Job Stories From Lewis Center, OH
Properly Sealing and Insulating a Crawl Space in Lewis Center, OH

During the 10 years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, noticed continuous issues in the partial crawl space adjacent to their basement. This area was not properly sealed or insulated, and there also seemed to be a problem with bugs.

While they only go into the crawl space a few times a year to retrieve or return boxes and bins of stored items, they wanted to fix this unhealthy area of their home once and for all.

As the owners began to search for repairs, they came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website and were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the crawl space. Our inspector then recommended some of our reliable repair solutions.

After carefully removing the failing insulation and liner, one of our crews placed thick drainage matting on the floor to enhance the durability of the encapsulation material. SilverGlo panels were then placed on the walls to properly insulate the crawl space, and the crawl space was encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. This liner completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. CleanSpace also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it assists in insulation.

The homeowners are pleased to now have a healthier and more functional crawl space because of these trustworthy repairs.

Updated Exterior Drainage Will Help Keep a Home Dry in Lewis Center, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, noticed potential problems with their exterior drainage system. They didn’t want water draining from the gutter downspout lines to end up seeping inside the basement.

After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the home and its drainage system. Our inspector then recommended updating the exterior drainage system.

One of our crews then installed new downspout conductor lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain water to the curb at the street. An IceGuard also was placed on the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked lines.

The owners are pleased to have an updated exterior drainage system that will help keep water out of their home.

Foundation Stabilization with Carbon Fiber Supports in Lewis Center, OH

After living in their house for 20 years, homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, noticed a potential structural issue getting worse. Several areas of one of the foundation walls had various cracks, and some spots also appeared to be tilting inward.

The owners didn’t want the wall or the rest of the home to sustain significant damage, so they started to research potential repairs. After finding Ohio Basement Authority’s website, they were motivated 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 wall. He then suggested one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then placed several Carbon Fiber supports on this wall. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to permanently stabilize it and hold it in its current position. They also protect the wall from any further cracking or inward bowing.

The homeowners can rest easier knowing this trustworthy repair method has helped them create a safe and stable living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

New Sump Pump and Exterior Drainage System Will Help Keep a Basement Dry in Lewis Center, OH

A homeowner in Lewis Center, OH, has lived in her house for almost 20 years. Recently, however, she started to notice some problems with the existing sump pump system. She questioned how effective the system really was, and if it could be counted on to keep the basement dry.

The owner didn’t want to wait for a flood to find out, so she started to research potential repairs. She found information about Ohio Basement Authority online, so she decided to contact us for further assistance. She met with one of our inspectors who presented her with our sump pump system choices. Our inspector also suggested other upgrades that would benefit her home.

One of our crews then replaced the older sump pump with the more reliable UltraSump Battery Backup System. The UltraSump has two powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery. All of these pieces work together to make sure the system will always work to pump water out of the basement, even during power outages. An IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this line also was tied into new exterior drainage lines that were installed on the property.

Additionally, the homeowner wanted to prevent mold and high humidity, as well as eliminate odors. So our crew installed the compact but powerful and energy-efficient SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. This dehumidifier self-drains into the UltraSump system, so there are no buckets to worry about having to empty like with conventional dehumidifiers.

The homeowner is pleased to have updated systems to help keep her home safe, healthy and dry.

Crawl Space Encapsulation and Insulation in Lewis Center, OH

After living in their house for almost 20 years, homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, were sick of looking at and smelling the unhealthy partial crawl space adjacent to their basement. This area was not properly insulated or lined, and they wanted to correct these issues before any other problems developed.

As they began to research repair options, the owners saw some of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. One of our inspectors visited the home to complete a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. He discussed his findings with the owners, as well as their repair goals, and he then suggested some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.

After removing the insulation and liner from the crawl space, one of our crews then encapsulated the area in CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space and isolates it from the earth. It also serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. Further insulation was installed including spray foam in the band joists and SilverGlo panels on the walls.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a healthier crawl space and home.

WaterGuard and SuperSump Create a Dry Crawl Space in Lewis Center, OH

After living in her house for many years, a homeowner in Lewis Center, OH, recently noticed water in the partial crawl space just off of her basement. She is never in this area of the house, but she wanted to make sure the leaking crawl space would not turn into a bigger issue.

She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our yard signs around the area at homes where we have completed various work. We then installed two of our reliable waterproofing installations that will always keep the crawl space dry.

Because the crawl space had a concrete floor as opposed to dirt or gravel normally found in crawl spaces, we installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system. If any water seeps into the crawl space, it will be intercepted by the WaterGuard system and drained to the SuperSump sump pump we also installed.

The owner now has peace of mind knowing she will have a dry home because of these reliable products.

Cracking, Bowing Foundation Walls in Lewis Center, OH, are Stabilized by Carbon Fiber Supports

Homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 28 years ago. During that time, they have noticed cracks in the foundation walls getting worse. These are common signs of wall failure, but can be dangerous and costly to repair in the long run.

They wanted to correct this structural issue once and for all, so the owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after researching the company through the Better Business Bureau.

To address the cracking and bowing walls, we installed one of our many reliable foundation repair products. A total of 20 Carbon Fiber wall supports were installed on the problematic walls to permanently stabilize them and prevent further cracking and inward bowing.

The owners are happy they now have a structurally stable home because of this permanent solution.

Push Piers Prevent the Future Foundation Settlement of a Home in Lewis Center, OH

Homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, have lived in their house for 13 years, moving into it only a few years after it was built. They were concerned their house might be settling, and they wanted to ensure its longtime structural integrity. The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and we installed three heavy-duty Push Piers underneath the foundation. This system permanently stabilizes the home's foundation and offers the best opportunity to lift is back to level without the expense and disruption of a full foundation replacement.

Once foundation brackets are secured to the footing, steel tubes are hydraulically driven through the brackets to competent soils or bedrock. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to load bearing strata.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing the home will always be a safe and stable living environment.

Cracking, Leaking Basement in Lewis Center, OH, is Permanently Waterproofed and Stabilized

After living in their house for many years, homeowners in Lewis Center, OH, were growing concerned with their leaking basement. 

Ready to address this once and for all, they contacted Ohio Basement Authority. Not only did we install several permanent basement waterproofing solutions, we tackled the root of the problem with foundation repair projects.

The foundation walls of the 40-year-old home were cracking and bowing inward. This allowed water to seep into the basement, saturating the walls and floor, and leave behind evidence of damage. One of our expert crews excavated down to the footer outside the severely cracked and bowed north foundation wall. It was then pushed back to as plumb as possible, and exterior dampproofing was applied to prevent moisture intrusion.

To further stabilize all of the problematic walls and prevent further structural issues, we installed a total of 47 heavy-duty steel I-beams.

Waterproofing products installed to keep the basement dry included the sub-floor drainage system, two UltraSump sump pumps, a SaniDry XP dehumidifier, and exterior IceGuards.

The owners are happy their home will now remain dry and structurally stable for many years to come.

Wet, Unstable Basement in Lewis Center, OH, Corrected by Permanent Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Solutions

A leaking basement and bowing foundation walls were beginning to worry homeowners in Lewis Center, OH. Another company previously installed waterproofing products in the basement, but the owners wanted to make sure these problems were correctly addressed so they would not happen again.

They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our expert crews completed various projects to keep the home stable and dry.

Several waterproofing products were installed, including the WaterGuard drainage system, a TripleSafe sump pump, a SaniDry XP dehumidifier, and an exterior IceGuard.

Carbon Fiber, one of our foundation repair products, was also installed. A total of 15 of these sturdy wall supports were placed on the problematic foundation walls to prevent further inward movement and cracking.

It is simple to conceal these durable wall supports, so ZenWall panels were installed on the walls to enhance their appearance.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their house will be a healthier living environment for many years to come.

Helical Piers Stabilize Sun Room in Lewis Center, OH

A homeowner in Lewis Center, OH, has lived in her house since it was built 20 years ago. She recently began to notice the sun room situated on top of the back deck was beginning to settle.

We installed five Helical Piers underneath the problematic, sinking areas of the deck. These heavy-duty piers will permanently stabilize the structure, and offer the best potential to lift it back to level.

Plan to spend more time in the full basement, and I am concerned about possible radon levels.
