The owners didn’t want these problems to worsen to the point of serious damage, so they began to research how to best address these issues. They came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website, and they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with Inspector Dave Wirtz who evaluated the condition of the wall. Dave then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then installed several Carbon Fiber supports along this wall. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to reinforce it and stabilize it in its current position. These strong supports also prevent any further cracking or inward bowing on the wall. These supports may not appear aesthetically pleasing, but they can easily be concealed with paint or other basement finishing materials.
The owners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy solution has helped ensure the safety and structural integrity of their home.
Before selling their house, homeowners in Pataskala, OH, wanted to tackle several repair projects to improve the health, safety and resale value of the 100-year-old home.
One of their top items was addressing the sump pump system in the basement. This older system lacked a proper lid, which is dangerous for several reasons. Items can easily fall into the open pit and damage the pumping equipment; any water in the pit could evaporate back into the basement and contribute to moisture, humidity and mold growth; and the pit could overflow and flood the basement.
The homeowners heard about Ohio Basement Authority and were then motivated to contact us for further guidance. They met with Inspector Jiovanni Valentino who took a look at the old sump pump system and agreed with the need for an upgrade. Jiovanni then recommended one type of our many reliable sump pump systems.
One of our crews then removed the older sump pump system and replaced it with the SuperSump system. A powerful 1/3 hp pump is housed within the sump liner to help pump seeping water out of the basement. We used the larger liner for our TripleSafe system to allow for easy future upgrades. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding if the line freezes or becomes blocked.
The homeowners are happy to have a new sump pump system to help keep the basement dry.
While homeowners in Pataskala, OH, have lived in their house since it was built six years ago, they recently noticed a problem in their basement after heavy rains. Water leaked into several areas, leaving behind wet carpet and drywall.
The owners wanted to make sure their basement and home would be healthy and safe, so they started to research basement waterproofing systems. They found information about Ohio Basement Authority online and were eager to contact us for further guidance. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the leaking basement. Our inspector then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our crews, led by Foreman Valentin Rosales, first removed the existing drywall and insulation from the walls, and then began to install solutions including the WaterGuard interior drainage system, UltraSump Battery Backup System, CleanSpace wall system, and exterior IceGuard attachment.
WaterGuard was placed in the sub-floor to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water intercepted by WaterGuard is directed to the UltraSump system, which features two powerful pumps inside its liner along with an external backup battery. The UltraSump then pumps this water out of the home and away from the foundation. Additionally, an IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked lines.
In place of the older insulation, we covered the walls with the CleanSpace wall system. CleanSpace typically is used to encapsulate crawl spaces, but it also is useful in basements. This thick and durable liner is completely waterproof, and it helps direct any seeping water from the walls down to the WaterGuard system in the floor.
The homeowners are happy to now have a more reliable basement waterproofing system to help keep their home safe and dry for many years to come.

These usually are the first signs homeowners will see when foundation walls begin to fail. The home was built almost 40 years ago, foundation wall failure is common as homes age. Another cause is constant force exerted on the walls by exterior soils known as hydrostatic pressure.
