The sunken and cracked concrete around your Morrow County home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.
Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.
Several years ago, a homeowner in Mount Gilead, OH, fell in love with a house that was built at the turn of the Twentieth Century. Since moving into the house, the homeowner has noticed sagging sections in the first floor.
Sagging floors are caused by a lack of a proper support system. This is especially common in older homes, but these issues should not be neglected because they can result in costly safety hazards.
Hoping to find a permanent solution, the homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. We then installed one type of our many reliable foundation repair products.
Along with new support beams, several SmartJacks were installed in the crawl space to support the above floor and floor joists. These heavy-duty galvanized steel supports permanently reinforce the support beams and floor joists, and help raise the sagging sections of the floor back to level. SmartJacks are designed to stop settling, but they can easily be adjusted if any settling occurs.
The owner now has peace of mind knowing her home will be a safe and stable living environment.

Selling a house is a significant undertaking, which is why homeowners in Mount Gilead, OH, wanted to take the proper steps to ensure their home’s health and resale value.

During the last few years of living in a farmhouse that was built in 1900, a homeowner in Mount Gilead, OH, noticed areas of the floor were out of level and beginning to sag.

A homeowner in Marengo, OH, contacted us because a corner of the house was leaking water. The basement was finished and included a utilized fourth bedroom.
One of our certified inspectors visited the home to determine which repairs and products would work best for this particular case.
He and the homeowner decided to go with a new egress window because the old one seemed to be falling out and causing some of the water leakage. They also wanted to include a SuperSump pump system with the UltraSump battery backup.
The installation crew came in and first installed the egress window. This is a window large enough to use as an escape route in the event of an emergency, and they are required for a finished basement. It also includes steps out to allow easier access to the surface.
Lastly, they installed the SuperSump pump system which is a 1/2-horsepower cast iron pump which can pump up to 2,200 gallons of water per hour. They attached the UltraSump battery backup which will keep the pump working in the event of a power outage.

They decided to go with SaniDry XP and CX systems, a SuperSump pump, and WaterGuard.
The installation crew came in and first set up the SaniDry Basement Air Systems. These are superior dehumidifiers which remove ten times the water as a regular dehumidifier, while using half the energy. The XP system is a larger system designed for basements, and the CX system is a smaller one used in crawl spaces.
Next, they installed the SuperSump pump system. This includes a 1/2 horsepower cast-iron pump which can ump up to 2,200 gallons per hour.
