Job Stories From Shelby, OH
Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Shelby, OH

Since moving into her house a couple years ago, a homeowner noticed water appeared to be leaking inside the basement. During the last few months, however, this issue seemed to be worsening. The owner’s daughter and grandchildren just moved into the house, as well, so she wanted to make sure everyone had a safe and healthy place to live.

The owner found information online about Ohio Basement Authority, and she was eager to contact us for further guidance. She met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the basement. Our inspector then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the WaterGuard drainage system and a SuperSump sump pump. WaterGuard is designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SuperSump that was installed to replace the older, failing sump pump system. The SuperSump then pumps water collected from the WaterGuard system out of the basement.

The owner can rest easier knowing her home is protected by these trustworthy repairs.

Foundation Stabilization with Wall Anchors in Shelby, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Shelby, OH, began to consider selling their house. Before they put the house on the market, they wanted to be sure to address a foundation wall that was cracking and tilting inward.

Eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company, they met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the foundation. He then presented the homeowners with the perfect solution.

One of our crews installed several Geo-Lock Wall Anchors on this wall. These heavy-duty anchors will permanently stabilize the wall. Their unique design allows for them to be tightened for potential wall improvement.

The homeowners were excited to have this trustworthy solution installed so their house will be a safe and stable living environment for the next owners and for many years to come.

Reinforcing Cracking Foundation Walls in Shelby, OH

They have lived in their house for two years, but it wasn’t until recently that homeowners in Shelby, OH, began to notice potential structural issues in their home. Two of the foundation walls were cracking and slightly tilting inward.

Not only were they concerned with the structural stability of the home, they wondered if these issues could impact their ability to sell the house in the future. Hoping to find a permanent solution, the homeowners researched possible repair options. They were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. They met with one of our experienced inspectors, and were eager for one of our expert crews to install one type of our many reliable foundation repair products.

We installed several Carbon Fiber supports on the problematic foundation walls. These heavy-duty supports permanently reinforce the foundation walls where they were installed, as well as prevent any further cracking and inward bowing. They also can easily be concealed by paint or drywall.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy solution has helped create a safe and stable living environment.

Carbon Fiber Stabilizes Wall in Shelby, OH

Homeowners in Shelby, OH, have lived in their house since it was built in 1990. When they decided they wanted to redo their basement, they turned their attention to the foundation wall that had been gradually bowing inward over the years. After doing an Internet search for foundation repair companies, they called us to set up a free inspection and estimate.

Our certified inspector surveyed the wall and decided that one type of our many reliable foundation repair products, Carbon Fiber straps, would be the best fix. Carbon Fiber is a material with a very high tensile strength, which means it is almost impossible to stretch or break under pressure. It is adhered to bowing and cracked walls to stabilize them and prevent any further failure. This is a good option for walls that are damaged but not falling down, and for people who want to finish their basements because they can easily cover the straps or paint over them.

A skilled production crew installed five Carbon Fiber straps along the bowing wall. The homeowners do not have to worry about the wall's condition getting worse, and they can re-do the basement without structural concerns.

We have a home that we have owned since 1990. The basement does not have proper drainage nor a sumppump. The walls have some cracking and mold. Water does penetrate during heavy periods of rain. Looking for estimates on ideas on the scope of work to make our basement dry.
Vicinity of W. Smiley Ave. in Shelby
The chimney on our home is leaning away from our home. Over the past few months, it is becoming more noticeable. I am concerned about the problem worsening and becoming more costly if it is not professionally examined. Thank you.
Vicinity of Broadway St. in Shelby
We bought this house in October 2015 and are now having problems with water in the basement. We need some help in figuring out how to proceed from here. We have started removing concrete to remove the old, clogged with mud and tree root footer tiles. Those will have to be replaced and then a new floor poured. We also have a roughly 8x15 concrete slab with a detatched carport on top that is uneven in spots and has cracks. We would love to have an estimate on what it would cost to have this work done. Thank you for your time.

I am purchasing a home at the address above, when I noticed during the inspection that the walls in the basement are bowing. I currently have 5 days to decide whether or not to proceed with the sale. I would like to have your company look at the basement and give me an estimate on the foundation repair so I can negotiate with the seller on the price. I do want the house and want your company to repair the basement, but this is contingent on ith being repairable. I hope you can help
