Homeowners in Orient, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 30 years ago. During that time, they stayed away from the crawl space underneath the house. Any time they tried to venture into what appeared to be a nasty and unhealthy area, the rough gravel floor made it difficult to maneuver around.

The owners put this area of their home on the back burner, but they couldn’t help but wonder if it was affecting the health of their home and their well-being. They noticed problems with moisture and dampness on the above floors, and they also were concerned with asthma and allergy issues. Because the owners plan to live in the house for the foreseeable future, they wanted to address these problems once and for all.

After seeing some of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, the owners were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our expert inspectors, and he completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. He pointed out that the vented crawl space was taking on seeping water and showed visible signs of water damage and moisture. He then recommended some of our trustworthy crawl space repair solutions.

We installed the SmartPipe drainage system in the crawl space floor, as well as the UltraSump sump pump, to waterproof the crawl space. Any seeping water will be intercepted by the SmartPipe system and directed to the UltraSump to be pumped out of the basement. An IceGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.

The crawl space was then encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, the thick and durable CleanSpace liner completely seals the crawl space and isolates it from the earth. It serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it also helps insulate the crawl space. Another insulation method we used was applying spray foam to the band joists. Additionally, several vent covers were placed on the home’s exterior to further seal the crawl space.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safe and healthy forever home.

Permanently Addressing Basement and Crawl Space Problems With Reliable Repairs in Orient, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Orient, OH, had grown tired of dealing with several issues in their house. There were visible signs of water intrusion in the basement and partial crawl space; the crawl space had issues with dampness, moisture, and odors; and several areas of the foundation walls were cracking.

After finding information about Ohio Basement Authority online, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the home. Our inspector then recommended a variety of solutions that would address each of the issues they wanted to remedy in the home.

One of our crews then completed a few repair projects in the house.

One was transforming the crawl space by waterproofing, encapsulating and insulating the area. SmartPipe was placed in the crawl space floor to intercept leaking water, and this water is then directed to a SmartSump sump pump to be pumped out of the house. The crawl space was insulated with SilverGlo panels that were placed on the walls, and then the area was encapsulated in CleanSpace to completely seal it from the earth.

The basement was waterproofed with the sub-floor WaterGuard system and an UltraSump sump pump. Like SmartPipe, WaterGuard catches seeping water from the walls and floor and then directs it to the UltraSump to be pumped out of the basement. IceGuards were attached to the exterior discharge lines from the UltraSump and SmartSump, and these discharge lines converged into one line that was directed to drain far from the house in the yard. A LawnScape was used to conceal the end of this line. A SaniDry dehumidifier also was installed in the basement to improve the air quality in the home.

The cracking, tilting foundation wall was permanently reinforced with several Carbon Fiber supports. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the walls to stabilize them in their supports. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to stabilize it in its current position and prevent further cracking or movement.

The homeowners are pleased these trustworthy repairs were completed to help them create a safe and healthy living environment.

Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Orient, OH

Some glaring problems recently stuck out to a homeowner in Orient, OH. Water was seeping into the basement, and the walls were showing signs of failure in the form of various cracks and inward tilting.

After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, the owner was eager to contact us for further assistance. He met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the basement. Our inspector then presented the owner with some of our reliable waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system, TripleSafe sump pump, SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, CleanSpace wall system, and exterior IceGuards. WaterGuard was placed in the floor to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the TripleSafe to be pumped out of the home. Exterior IceGuards were attached to the sump pump discharge line, and SaniDry dehumidifier also was installed to improve the air quality. CleanSpace was placed on the walls to help direct seeping water down to the WaterGuard system, as well as improve the walls’ appearance.

The walls also were stabilized by PowerBrace beams. These heavy-duty beams can be tightened during dry seasons to potentially improve the walls that were cracking and bowing inward.

The homeowner is pleased to now have a basement and home that will be safe, stable and dry because of these trustworthy repairs.

Egress Window Installation in Orient, OH

After moving into their house, new homeowner in Orient, OH, wanted to complete various improvement projects around the house. They found out the previous owners used Ohio Basement Authority to lift and level cracking and sinking concrete with our unique PolyLevel System, and they liked the end result.

Because of this, the new owners knew they could count on us to complete other repairs in their home. They could potentially use their basement as livable space, and they knew certain requirements needed to be met in order to do so. The International Code for One-and Two-Family Dwellings states that habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.

The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority with the goal of transforming at least one of their current basement windows into an egress window. One of our expert crews did this by removing one of the windows and excavating the area outside the window. The crew then carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the newer, bigger window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame resists rust, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient.

A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window.

The homeowners are happy to have an updated basement window system that enhances the safety and appearance of their living environment.

This ensures the sump pump system will always work to pump any water out of the basement, even in the event of power outages. IceGuards also were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines.

The latest project we completed for the homeowners involved upgrading the exterior drainage system.

Crawl Space Stabilization and Encapsulation Creates a Healthier and More Valuable Home in Orient, OH

After living in his house for 11 years, a homeowner in Orient, OH, was putting his house on the market. He was aware of some structural issues when he moved in, but he knew the time had come to properly address them if he wanted to sell the house.

Some areas of the floors were sagging, suggesting a failing support system was present in the crawl space. The homeowner consulted with a local structural engineer, then contacted Ohio Basement Authority for a repair solution.

These heavy-duty supports permanently stabilize the above floors and help raise them back to level. They are designed to help stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any further sagging or settling occurs.

We also encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner, and insulated it with SilverGlo panels on the walls and spray foam in the band joists. Vent covers were installed on the home’s exterior to seal the crawl space from outside air and pests, and the EverLast crawl space door was installed as a safer and secure access point.

Vicinity of Carson Rd in Orient
I would like to get an estimate for an exterior drainage project in the back of my home. The back yard does naturally slope toward the house and over the last number of years the soil has evidently compacted so that there is standing water after rains and/or snow melt. This used to occur only after exceptionally heavy rains or several rainy days, but occurs with lighter rains now. This creates problems as the homes septic and leach bed systems are in the area and operate inefficiently when there is standing water. You did a basement waterproofing project for me a couple of years ago and I was pleased with that result. Thank you.
