After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Mount Gilead, OH, recently noticed a problem in their basement was beginning to worsen. Water leaked inside the 117-year-old home, leaving puddles and streams behind. The owners use the basement for storage, and they were concerned with damage to their belongings as well as the health of their house.
The owners were motivated to address these issues once and for all after they attended a major home and garden show. They visited Ohio Basement Authority’s booth and spoke to some of our staff about their concerns. They were eager to then meet with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them. Our inspector completed a thorough evaluation of the basement, and he then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard drainage system, SuperSump sump pump and CleanSpace Wall System. WaterGuard was placed in the sub-floor to catch seeping water and direct it to the SuperSump sump pump to be pumped out of the basement. CleanSpace typically is used in crawl space encapsulation projects, but it has other practical uses as well. This thick and durable material was used to cover the stone walls in the basement and help direct any seeping water down to the WaterGuard system.
The homeowners are happy to now have a dry basement and a healthier home because of these trustworthy repairs.
After living in her house for one year, a homeowner in Mount Gilead, OH, was motivated to address some glaring issues in her basement. Water seemed to leak inside during periods of heavy rain, leaving puddles on the floor.
Not only did she want to have this issue fixed, she also wanted to make sure the house was up to code by having an egress window installed in livable space in the finished portion of the basement. As she began to research how to best address these issues, she discussed her concerns with a trusted friend. This friend talked about how happy he was with the crawl space encapsulation Ohio Basement Authority recently completed for him, so he recommended contacting us for help. The owner was eager to do so to learn more about how we could help her.
The homeowner met with one of our inspectors who thoroughly evaluated the leaking basement. Along with our reliable basement waterproofing solutions, our inspector also recommended having one of our crews install an egress window.
The crew then installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system and TripleSafe sump pump in the basement. The sub-floor WaterGuard system intercepts any seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the powerful, reliable TripleSafe and pumped out of the basement. IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and these lines were tied into a new downspout conductor line that was installed on the property.
An egress window also was installed in the basement bedroom to function as an emergency exit, as well as allow more natural light to enter the room.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing her home will be a healthy and safe living environment because of these trustworthy solutions.
Homeowners in Mount Gilead, OH, have lived in their house since it was built almost 30 years ago. It wasn’t until recently that the owners began to seriously question the health of their home, as their daughter seemed to always be sick.
While they were working on mitigating mold they noticed upstairs, the owners wondered what was underneath their house. Some friends of the homeowners live near one of Ohio Basement Authority’s inspectors, and the owners were eager to have our inspector in their house to evaluate it.
The inspector ventured into the vented crawl space under the house and reported that this was an unhealthy area. Some of the problems that could be contributing to the young girl’s health issues included failing and moldy insulation in the crawl space.
Eager to remedy this area of the house, the owners agreed to have one of our crews install some of our permanent crawl space repair solutions. After carefully removing the debris and failing insulation, we encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner seals the crawl space from the earth, prevents moisture and vapor intrusion, and helps insulate the crawl space.
We further insulated the crawl space by applying spray foam in the band joists. Vent covers were placed on the home’s exterior to further seal the crawl space, and an EverLast Door was used to cover the exterior crawl space access point.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer living environment.

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.
This is due to foundation settlement and an older, failing support system. It is common for structural support systems in older homes to fail over time, but this can quickly turn into a safety hazard if it is not properly addressed.
The homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we installed the perfect solution to enhance his home’s structural stability.
Along with new steel support beams, a total of 13 SmartJacks were installed to permanently reinforce the above floor and floor joists. These durable support jacks are constructed out of galvanized steel so they will never corrode or fail.

They also are designed to stop the floors from sagging, but their unique design allows them to be adjusted for additional support if any sagging occurs.
