Before After
Crawl Space Encapsulation & Insulation in Plain City, OH Crawl Space Encapsulation & Insulation in Plain City, OH

Homeowners in Plain City, OH, have lived in their house for 22 years, and they wanted to create a healthier storage area in their crawl space.

While their crawl space did not leak or cause energy penalties, they noticed problems with mice in the past.

After removing the older insulation and matting, one of Ohio Basement Authority's expert crews encapsulated the crawl space with CleanSpace liner. This isolates the home from the earth and pests. Drainage matting was placed under the liner to enhance durability, and SilverGlo insulation panels were installed on the walls.

Both the walls and floor are now insulated to save the most money. These products also meet the homeowners' goals of controlling earth moisture, saving energy, and creating a cleaner crawl space.

WaterGuard and UltraSump Will Keep a Basement Dry in Plain City, OH

Homeowners in Plain City, OH, have lived in their house for one year. During that time, they noticed a problem in their basement. After recently returning home from an out-of-town trip, they found that water leaked into their basement and left puddles and visible damage behind.

Sealing and Stabilizing a Crawl Space in Plain City, OH

Not long after moving into their house, new homeowners in Plain City, OH, began to notice some issues that needed attention. The floors felt particularly cold, and some areas of the first floor felt like they were sagging and uneven.

Exterior Drainage Upgrades in Plain City, OH

Homeowners in Plain City, OH, have noticed a problem in their basement. Water appeared to leak inside in the same area where gutter downspouts were located on the home’s exterior.

The owners wanted to make sure their forever home would always be safe and dry, so they began to research potential repair options. After finding information about Ohio Basement Authority on Home Advisor, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the lines and then recommended replacing the exterior drainage system.

Push Piers Stabilize Settling Foundation in Plain City, OH

After living in their house for 12 years, homeowners in Plain City, OH, started to notice potential structural problems. Along with various cracks, the owners noticed a section of their house seemed to be settling and uneven.

Concerned with the safety and structural integrity of their home, the owners began to research how to best address these issues. They found Ohio Basement Authority’s website and were then motivated to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the home and its problematic foundation. Our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several Push Piers underneath the settling foundation. After digging down to expose the foundation’s footing, heavy-duty steel brackets were secured. Rugged steel tubes were then driven through the brackets to competent soils. The weight of the house was then transferred through the piers to load-bearing strata. This ensures no further settlement will occur, and the home’s walls can be lifted back to level.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair project has helped ensure the safety and stability of their forever home.

Waterproofing a Leaking Crawl Space in Plain City, OH

After living in their house for a few months, homeowners in Plain City, OH, noticed a problem under their home was only getting worse. The crawl space had excessive moisture issues, as well as seeping water.

The new homeowners wanted to address these problems before any serious damage resulted, so they began to research potential repairs. They were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the crawl space. He then recommended the perfect solutions to keep the area dry.

One of our crews then waterproofed the crawl space with the SmartPipe drainage system and SuperSump sump pumps. Any seeping water through the walls and floor is intercepted by the SmartPipe system that was placed in the floor. This water is then directed to one of the SmartSump systems that was installed in the large crawl space. These sump pumps then pump the water out of the crawl space and away from the home’s foundation.

Additionally, IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked lines. These exterior discharge lines also were tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property by placing them in the ground and directing them drain at the edge of the property.

The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy repairs will keep their crawl space dry, and they look forward to completing additional projects with us in the future!

Fixing and Protecting Cracking, Tilting Foundation Walls in Plain City, OH

After living in their house for 25 years, homeowners in Plain City, OH, began to consider their future.

During the last few years, they noticed issues like cracking and tilting foundation walls getting worse.

The owners were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They then met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the walls.

One of our crews then installed several PowerBrace beams on the problematic foundation walls. These steel beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists. The beams are then plumbed against the walls as level as possible, and the bottom of the beams are anchored to the floor. These heavy-duty beams are zinc-plated beams so they are protected from corrosion and damage, unlike the other typical metal and wooden supports. Another unique feature of this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to potentially improve and straighten the walls over time.

Cracking, Bowing Foundation Walls in Plain City, OH, are Permanently Stabilized With Wall Anchors and Carbon Fiber Supports

It is common for foundation walls to crack and bow inward as homes age. While there can be a number of explanations, the most common cause of foundation wall failure is hydrostatic pressure constantly exerted on the walls by exterior soils. Telltale signs of this include various cracking patterns, especially stair-step cracks like the ones in these homeowners’ walls.

The owners wanted to address this issue before it became a major hazard, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Angie’s List. We then installed the perfect foundation repair solutions to permanently stabilize their foundation walls.

Several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed on the most severely cracking and bowing walls. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors offer the best opportunity to straighten the walls. Many Carbon Fiber supports also were added to the interior walls to further reinforce them and prevent any more cracking or bowing.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable installations have helped create a structurally sound home they will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.

We installed the trustworthy TripleSafe sump pump in the 13-year-old home to always keep it dry. This system features three high-powered pumps inside the liner, including one that is operated by an exterior back-up battery. This ensures the pump will continue to work even in the event of a power outage.

Two IceGuards were also attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding if the lines become blocked or freeze.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this top-notch system will keep their longtime home safe and dry for many more years to come.

I have a crumbling brick interior basement wall that also provides support for joists under our kitchen. Holes were punched thru the wall for heating and it is now giving away where the holes are. This has caused some joists to let loose causing floor issues in the kitchen. Heat ducts are no longer used.

I have had two floods this week in my basement. My sump pump won't kick on when it needs to and sometimes won't shut off. I need a quote ASAP.
Vicinity of Brock Road in Plain City
Per my structural engineer: West wall is excessively out of plumb, and needs to be pushed back and reinforced, or replaced. In my opinion, this wall appears to be in good enough condition to attempt to push the wall back into place, however this will need to be confirmed with the contractor completing the work. If the wall is pushed back into place, this will require excavating the outside of the wall & installing steel beams to push the wall back.
