A homeowner in Upper Sandusky, OH, noticed his basement walls were cracking and bowing inward.

These common signs of wall failure are most likely caused by hydrostatic pressure. As exterior soil expands, it exerts pressure on the wall. As this continues over time, the problems will only get worse. It is important to seek professional assistance as soon as these signs are visible.

The homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority with the goal of permanently stabilizing the problematic walls. After repairing the cracks, one of our expert crews installed a total of 16 Carbon Fiber wall supports on the foundation walls. These sturdy supports will permanently reinforce the walls and prevent further cracking or bowing. It is also easy to conceal these supports with paint or drywall.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing the foundation walls will be structurally stable for many years to come.

During the three years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Upper Sandusky, OH, have rarely ventured into the crawl space underneath the house. However, once the owners recently peeked inside they noticed this was a nasty, unhealthy area.

The first things they noticed were that the crawl space was wet and smelly. There were areas of standing water that appeared to have seeped through the open vents. This water saturated and started to rot some of the wooden supports, and it contributed to high moisture and humidity in the area. The crawl space also lacked proper insulation and floor lining, and debris was strewn about the area.

The owners also wondered if these conditions were affecting the health of the rest of the home and the wellbeing of their family. They wanted to address these issues right away so their children would have a healthy place to grow up.

As they researched potential repairs, the owners came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online. They were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors. The inspector completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space, and he then presented the owners with our trustworthy repair solutions.

After taking great care in removing any debris and insulation from the crawl space, one of our crews began to transform the area by installing waterproofing solutions like the SmartPipe drainage system and SmartSump sump pump. Any seeping water will be intercepted by the SmartPipe system and directed to the SmartSump to be pumped out of the crawl space. An IceGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and a LawnScape outlet was placed at the end of the discharge line to camouflage the line in the yard.

Thick drainage matting was placed on the crawl space floor to assist with waterproofing and enhance the durability of the encapsulation material. The crawl space was then encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. This liner completely isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. The crawl space was further insulated with SilverGlo panels that were placed on the walls.

Additionally, a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed in the crawl space to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, reduce odors and prevent mold growth. The crawl space was further sealed by placing vent covers over the vents, and the Turtl was installed as a more secure crawl space access point.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these solutions have helped them create safe and healthy crawl space and home.

Job Stories From Upper Sandusky, OH
Permanent Solutions Transform a Leaking Basement and Unhealthy Crawl Space in Upper Sandusky, OH

It's been less than one year since moving into their house, but homeowners in Upper Sandusky, OH, were ready to tackle a nagging problem once and for all. They noticed water seeping into their basement every time it rained, saturating and ruining the carpet and drywall.

They plan to live in the house for many years, so maintaining a safe and dry home is very important to them. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we installed several permanent basement waterproofing solutions.

The brick and drywall near the bottom of the walls were removed, and the perimeter of the floor was excavated for the installation of the sub-floor WaterGuard drainage system. If water seeps into the basement, it will be intercepted by the WaterGuard system and drained to a sump pump.

Because of the basement's large area, two sump pumps were installed. The SuperSump was installed in one corner, and an UltraSump, complete with a back-up battery, was installed in another corner.

New downspout lines were also installed for sump pump drainage, and IceGuards were attached to these exterior discharge lines just outside the house.

There was also debris in the dirt crawl space, as well as failing insulation. We transformed this unhealthy crawl space by encapsulating it in durable CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace completely isolates the crawl space from the earth and acts as a vapor and moisture barrier. The SmartPipe drainage system was also installed in the sub-floor underneath the CleanSpace liner.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing their basement and crawl space have been transformed so that their home will be a healthier living environment for many more years to come!

We installed the SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the crawl space. This powerful, energy-efficient unit eliminates damp and musty odors for good by drying and filtering the air.
