New Sump Pumps and Other Upgrades Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Mount Sterling, OH

After living in her house for several years, a homeowner was motivated to address a glaring problem in the basement before it was too late. She noticed water was seeping inside and left visible damage behind, and the existing sump pumps obviously were failing to keep up with this leaking water.

During her research, the owner found Ohio Basement Authority’s website and was eager to contact us. She met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the basement. Our inspector then recommended the perfect upgrades to keep her basement dry.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard drainage system, TripleSafe sump pumps, and exterior IceGuard attachments.

WaterGuard was placed in the sub-floor to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to drain to one of the two TripleSafe sump pumps installed in the large basement. Each of these systems features three powerful pumps inside the liner, as well as an external backup battery. IceGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding form frozen or blocked lines.

Crawl Space Waterproofing and Encapsulation in Mount Sterling, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Mount Sterling, OH, began to seriously question the health and safety of their home. They rarely venture into the crawl space under their house, but a recent peek inside revealed some glaring problems. The owners detected high moisture and humidity, along with some standing water.

After learning about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the problematic crawl space. Our inspector concurred with the owner’s findings. He then discussed their repair project goals with them, as well as how our reliable solutions would help.

One of our crews then transformed the crawl space. After removing any debris and failing liner and insulation, the crawl space was waterproofed with the SmartPipe drainage System and SmartSump sump pump. Any leaking water from the walls and floor will be intercepted by the SmartPipe system and then directed to the SmartSump sump pump to be pumped out of the crawl space. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.

The crawl space was then encapsulated in thick and durable CleanSpace liner, which completely isolates the crawl space from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space.

A SaniDry dehumidifier also was installed to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth. Several vent covers were placed on the home’s exterior to seal the vents, and an EverLast Door was installed to replace the older, failing crawl space access door.

Stabilizing an Older Home in Mount Sterling, OH

A home buyer fell in love with a charming older house in Mount Sterling. However, he was concerned with some structural issues apparent in the basement. One of the foundation walls of the 87-year-old home was cracking and slightly tilting inward. Some of the light duty support jacks also were failing to support the floor joists, causing the floor above to sag.

Concerned with the home’s safety and structural integrity, the interested home buyer began to research how to best address these issues. He contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and after a thorough evaluation by one of our inspectors, the home buyer was eager for one of our crews to install the perfect solutions.

We replaced the failing support beams on the problematic foundation wall with sturdy structural steel I-Beams. We also replaced the light duty jack posts with more reliable SmartJacks. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel SmartJacks permanently stabilize the floor and floor joists. They also prevent further sagging and offer the best opportunity to lift the floors back to level. The SmartJacks will not rust or corrode. They also are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

The new homeowner is pleased to now have a structurally stable living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.

Sealing a Nasty Crawl Space in Mount Sterling, OH

They have lived in their house for almost two years, but it wasn’t until recently that homeowners in Mount Sterling, OH, began to worry about the health of their home. Their children suffered from various respiratory issues, and they wanted to find the root of the problem.

After a home inspector evaluated the house and recommended insulating and dehumidifying the crawl space the owners wanted to investigate this further. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and one of our experienced inspectors confirmed the crawl space was an unhealthy area. The dirt crawl space was filled with debris, failing insulation, and the strong presence of moisture and high humidity.

The homeowners were eager for one of our experienced crews to encapsulate the crawl space with CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner completely isolates the area from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. We further insulated the crawl space by placing TerraBlock insulation boards on the floor under CleanSpace, installing SilverGlo panels on the walls, and applying spray foam to the band joists.

We also installed the SaniDry CX dehumidifier to clean and filter the air, help control humidity and reduce odors. Several vent covers were placed on the home’s exterior to prevent intrusion from outside air, precipitation and pests.

The homeowners can rest easier knowing these reliable products have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment for their family.

Basement Waterproofing in Mount Sterling, OH

A home in Mount Sterling, OH, had been leaking water from the basement walls since the homeowner moved in in 1999. The leakage was especially bad during heavy rains. There also were cracks in the walls and water damage. The homeowner called us for help.

One of our inspectors visited the home to assess the problem and explain the options to the homeowner. She was on a budget, so she decided to go with half the repairs and finish the rest next year. She was, however, made aware that this may cause potential worsening of the problem over the time the repairs were not made.

She had us install IceGuard, WaterGuard, SuperSump with UltraSump, and LawnScape.

The production crew came in and first installed SuperSump with the UltraSump battery backup. This is a cast iron sump pump system which can pump up to 2,200 gallons of water per hour. UltraSump keeps the sump working even if the power goes out.

Then, they attached new drainage pipes to carry water from the sump pump up and out of the home. They also included an IceGuard attachment to the discharge line to give water an escape route even if the pipe freezes in the winter. A LawnScape Outlet was added at the end of the line to camouflage it and prevent tripping or lawn mowing hazards. 

Next, they installed the WaterGuard system. This is a series of trapezoidal drains with holes on the side and a flange to catch water from the ground and walls. They lay at a gradual slope which allows the water to run into the sump pump system. WaterGuard is designed not to clog with dirt from under the floor as traditional pipe and gravel systems do.

The homeowner is happy that her basement is permanently waterproofed, and she hopes to continue with her foundation repairs next year.

We have settling in our home that seems to be getting worse and I feel that it may be that the crawlspace does not have enough support. I would like someone to come out and take a look.
