A homeowner in Portsmouth, OH, has lived in his house for several years. But it wasn’t until recently that he noticed some areas of the floors felt uneven and like they were sagging.
The owner wanted to address these problems before serious damages resulted. He previously worked with Ohio Basement Authority on another repair project, so he knew he could again count on us for the right repair solution. One of our inspectors visited to evaluate the support system in the crawl space underneath the house, and he found these supports were starting to fail. Our inspector then recommended one of our reliable foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews then installed several SmartJacks underneath new steel supplemental support beams in the crawl space. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel supports permanently stabilize the floor joists and help raise the floor back to level. They also will not rust or corrode. They are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.
The homeowner continues to be a happy Ohio Basement Authority customer, and he is glad to now have a safe and stable living environment.
While searching for the best repair options, the homeowners came across Ohio Basement Authority’s information on Angie’s List. They were eager to contact us and meet with one of our inspectors. After assessing the condition of the leaking, cracking basement, our inspector recommended our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.
We installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system and two UltraSump sump pumps to keep the large basement dry. Any water intercepted by the WaterGuard system is directed to the UltraSump and then pumped out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation. IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and a LawnScape outlet was used to camouflage the end of one of these lines in the yard.
Several PowerBrace beams also were installed to permanently stabilize the cracking, tilting wall. These unique beams can be adjusted during dry seasons to improve the wall’s condition.
The homeowners are pleased these trustworthy solutions were installed to help them create a safe and healthy living environment.

He contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our expert crews installed the PowerBrace System. A total of five heavy-duty, zinc-plated steel beams were tightly secured against the problematic wall. These beams will stabilize the wall in its current position, and they can be tightened over time for possible wall improvement.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing his home will be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come.
Homeowners in Portsmouth, OH, wanted to sell their home, but first needed to address a significant basement leakage issue. They tried "do it yourself" waterproofing methods that proved to be ineffective because water was still seeping into the basement.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our expert crews installed the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system around the basement's perimeter. The WaterGuard intercepts any water and drains it to the SuperSump sump pump. The SuperSump pumps the water out of and away from the home through a discharge line. An IceGuard was attached to the exterior discharge line to prevent flooding if the line freezes or becomes blocked.
A back coal room in the older home's basement was also encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. The durable liner was completely sealed over the floor and walls to fully isolate the home from the earth. The result is an attractive, bright, tough, impervious liner, and a healthy home!
The homeowners are pleased to have a healthier basement that will be dry for future owners for many years to come.
Homeowners in Portsmouth, OH, noticed a lot of water would seep into their basement every time it rained heavily. They spent a lot of money to clean it up, but it continued to be a problem.
WaterGuard was installed in the sub-floor to catch any seeping water and drain it to the TripleSafe. Water is then pumped out of the basement and away from the home. The TripleSafe features three pumps, including a battery back-up pumping system that ensures the home will be protected even in a power outage.
The homeowners are happy to have a basement that will be dry and healthy for years to come.
