Homeowners in Orient, OH, fell in love with their more than 100-year-old house when they purchased it 10 years ago. They recently began to refurbish the structure, and decided to start from the ground up.
The owners noticed their floors were beginning to sag, and they wanted to correct the issue before it got any worse.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our expert crews installed beam supports and several SmartJack Crawl Space Stabilizers in the crawl space. These heavy-duty products will stop further settling and raise the above floor back up to the proper level.
The homeowners are pleased these installations will keep their house structurally supported for years to come.
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.

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.

CleanSpace was placed on the walls to help direct seeping water down to the WaterGuard system, as well as improve the walls’ appearance.

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.
