Job Stories From Richwood, OH
Crawl Space Encapsulation and Stabilization in Richwood, OH

A longtime homeowner in Richwood, OH, noticed structural problems were starting to worsen in her house. Several areas of the above floors felt like they were sagging and uneven.

Concerned with the safety of her home, the owner wanted to have these problems fixed before serious damage resulted. After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owner was motivated to contact us for further guidance. She met with one of our inspectors who ventured into the crawl space to investigate the support system. Along with failing supports, our inspector noticed this also was an unhealthy and unsightly area. He then presented the owner with some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed various supplemental steel beams underneath the failing floor joists in the crawl space, and these beams were further reinforced by many SmartJacks. These heavy-duty jack supports help to permanently reinforce the above floor and floor joists, as well as help lift the floors back to level.

The crawl space also was encapsulated in thick and durable CleanSpace liner, which completely seals the crawl space from the earth. Vent covers also were placed over the vents on the home’s exterior to further seal the home from outside air, water and pests.

The owner is pleased to now have a safer and healthier living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.

WaterGuard and UltraSump Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Richwood, OH

During the four years that she has lived in her house, a homeowner in Richwood, OH, noticed a problem in her basement was getting worse. Water leaked inside the basement every time it rained and resulted in puddles on the floor.

Tired of cleaning up water after every rainstorm, the owner was motivated to address the problem once and for all. She started to research potential repairs, and ended up finding information online about Ohio Basement Authority. She was eager to contact us for further assistance, and she met with one of our inspectors. Our inspector completed a thorough evaluation of the problematic basement, and he then recommended some of our reliable waterproofing solutions that would keep the basement dry.

One of our crews then installed the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system to intercept seeping water. This water is then directed to the UltraSump sump pump and then pumped out of the home. An IceGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this line was tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property. CleanSpace also was placed on the walls to help direct leaking water down to the WaterGuard system.

The homeowner can rest easier now that she has an updated waterproofing system to keep her home dry for many years to come.

Foundation Stabilization in Richwood, OH

After living in his house for two years, a homeowner in Richwood, OH, started to notice structural problems only worsening. Several areas of the foundation walls were cracking and slightly tilting inward. These are common signs of foundation failure that the homeowner wanted to address before any serious damage resulted.

After learning about Ohio Basement Authority, the owner was eager to contact us to see how we could help him. He met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the problematic walls. Our inspector then recommended some of our reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several PowerBrace beams in the basement to permanently stabilize and help straighten the walls. Unlike typical support beams, a unique feature with this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to potentially improve and straighten the walls over time.

The homeowner is pleased this repair project was completed to ensure the safety and stability of his living environment.

Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Richwood, OH

As new homeowners moved into their house in Richwood, OH, they questioned the health of the home, particularly in the basement. They noticed evidence of water seepage and damage, and they wanted to make sure these would not be recurring problems.

They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them. The inspector assessed the condition of the 100-year-old home’s basement, and he recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system and TripleSafe sump pump to keep the basement dry. WaterGuard is designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing to be able to accept water from the walls and floor. This water intercepted by WaterGuard is then directed to the TripleSafe sump pump. Equipped with three powerful pumps inside the liner, as well as an external backup battery, the TripleSafe will always operate to pump water out of the home. IceGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and these lines were tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property.

Additionally, a FloodRing was placed around the water tank to contain and redirect any water that may leak from the tank. This water is then directed to the WaterGuard system, which the FloodRing also is attached to. CleanSpace was also used on the bottom-most portion of the walls to direct seeping water from the walls down to the WaterGuard system.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

SmartJacks Stabilize Sagging Floor Above a Crawl Space in Richwood, OH

After living in her home for 20 years, a homeowner in Richwood, OH, started to notice that some areas of the floor had soft spots and were not level.

Hoping to permanently resolve this issue so her home would always be stable, she contacted Ohio Basement Authority after being referred by a trusted friend.

We then installed several areas of beam supports, along with 21 SmartJack throughout the expansive crawl space underneath the house. These sturdy jacks not only support the floor joists, they also raise the floor back to level.

Other crawl space repair products were also installed, including five exterior vent covers to seal the crawl space from outside air and pests. A Turtl was also added as an additional, secure crawl space access point.

The owner was pleased these reliable, permanent solutions were installed so her home will be a structurally sound and secure living environment for many more years to come.
