Homeowners in Zanesville, OH, have lived in their house for almost 20 years. But they have started to use their basement as livable space, so they wanted to make sure it would be safe and up to code.
According to the International Residential Code, all habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.
After finding information about Ohio Basement Authority on Angie’s List, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who agreed with the necessity of an egress window.
After excavating the area outside the new window location, one of our crews then carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the newer, bigger window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame resists rust, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient. A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window.
The owners are pleased to now have an updated window system.
During the last couple of years, a homeowner in Zanesville, OH, has noticed a problem getting worse in his basement. Water was visibly leaking inside and leaving puddles and damage behind. The basement is used for storage and laundry, and the owner didn’t want to have to worry about losing his possessions to leaking waters.
After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s ad on TV, the owner was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the problematic basement. Our inspector then presented the owner with 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 was placed in the sub-floor and atop the footing to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to drain into the SuperSump system. This system, which features a powerful 1/3 hp pump inside the liner, then pumps the water out of the home.
The homeowner is pleased to now have a dry basement and home because of these trustworthy repairs.
As they moved into their house, homeowners in Zanesville, OH, noticed some structural problems they wanted to have taken care of.

After finding information about Ohio Basement Authority online, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the home and its foundation walls. Our inspector then recommended some of our reliable foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews then permanently stabilized the problematic foundation walls with Carbon Fiber supports, PowerBrace beams, and Geo-Lock Channel Anchors. All of these trustworthy solutions reinforce the walls and prevent any more cracking and movement. The PowerBrace beams and wall anchors can be tightened during dry seasons to improve the walls’ conditions and help return them to level.

Siblings recently stepped up to help their parents sell their longtime home in Zanesville, OH. Before putting the 65-year-old house on the market, the siblings knew various repairs needed to be completed around the home, including addressing two foundation walls that were cracking and tilting inward.
The siblings spoke to a trusted friend about their concerns with the house, and the friend recommended they contact Ohio Basement Authority for the perfect solution. The pair met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the failing foundation walls. Our inspector then suggested some of our reliable foundation repair methods.
Because the pair wanted to straighten the walls right away, one of our crews first completed what is known as a “dig and push” project. They excavated the ground outside the problematic foundation walls and then pushed the walls back to as level as possible. The soil was then backfilled into the trench that was dug for this project.
To permanently reinforce the walls from the inside, we also installed several PowerBrace beams. These steel beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists. The beams are then plumbed against the wall 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. Another unique feature with this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to improve and straighten the wall.
The siblings can confidently sell the home knowing it will be a safe and stable living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.

They are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair solution has helped them create a safe and stable living environment.
Homeowners in Zanesville, OH, have lived in their house for four years. They recently decided they wanted to use their basement as livable space, but they knew various improvements needed to be completed before doing so.
The International Code for One-and Two-Family Dwellings states that all habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.
The homeowners began to research how to best address this and bring their home up to code. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. After meeting with one of our inspectors, the homeowners were eager for one of our crews to install a functional egress window system in the basement.
After excavating the area outside of the window system’s intended location, the crew carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame is rust-resistant, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient.
A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window well.
The homeowners are happy to have an updated basement window system that enhances the safety and appearance of their home.
An employee of a housing company in Zanesville, OH, contacted us about water infiltration in a few units of a multi-family development. The company wanted us to inspect and repair the problems before they rented the units.
After hearing their options, the company decided to have SuperSump systems with UltraSump backup and WaterGuard installed.
The installation crew first installed four SuperSump pump systems. These are 1/2-horsepower cast iron sump pumps which can pump up to 2,200 gallons of water per hour. To these, they added on the UltraSump battery backup, which keeps the pump working in the event of a power outage or if the primary pump stops working for any reason.
Next, they installed WaterGuard interior drains around the perimeter of the basements. This is a below-floor drain system which collects water from the ground and wall with large holes and a special flange. Unlike traditional pipe and gravel drains, it is resistant to clogs because of its unique design.
The company is happy with the repairs, and they are ready to move on with other renovations in the development.
