Our Services for You

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement, due to its below-ground location and local wet weather, is susceptible to damage. Be vigilant for signs of flooding and water damage, mold and mildew, efflorescence, and unpleasant odors.

While these issues are common, they threaten your home’s structure and your family’s health and safety.

Ohio Basement Authority addresses these problems directly, offering robust solutions that actively manage and eliminate water and humidity. These custom solutions include interior drainagesump pumpsdehumidifiers, wall vapor barriers, and more.

Foundation Repair

Your home’s safety and longevity depend on a strong foundation. However, unstable, expansive soil can easily damage it. Indications of such damage include cracksbowing wallsuneven floors, drywall cracks, and nail pops.

Ignoring these issues can threaten your home’s stability, cause cosmetic damage, result in costly repairs, and pose safety risks.

Our team uses reliable, durable solutions to permanently stabilize your home on solid ground. These solutions include various wall repair and reinforcement systems, pier systems, and crawl space supports. These systems can be customized to address your foundation’s specific needs.

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair

In Akron, some homes have a crawl space instead of a basement. These spaces are susceptible to issues like elevated humidity, infestations, mold, musty odors, and rotting wood.

Such problems can risk your family’s health, damage your home’s structure, and create an unsafe environment.

The most effective solution is to seal and condition the crawl space. Ohio Basement Authority offers long-lasting crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions, including drainagesump pumps, thermal insulation, vapor barriersdehumidifiers, and support posts.

Concrete Lifting

Concrete is durable, but damage is common in areas like your sidewalk and driveway. If the soil underneath is unstable, it can cause the concrete to crack and sink leading to uneven areas, tripping hazards and other issues.

Various concrete lifting and repair methods exist. However, at Ohio Basement Authority, we use a safe, quick, and effective method of concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections. This lightweight, durable foam is less invasive and cures quickly. It’s also environmentally friendly and can be applied to surfaces like your sidewalk, driveway, pool deck, and interior slab floors.

FAQs

Many homeowners believe that moisture simply comes with the territory of owning a house with a basement. While dampness is common, it is not a normal or safe condition for your basement or home.

Below are some of the typical ways moisture enters your basement. If you notice any of them, reach out to your local basement waterproofing professionals right away for an inspection and repairs.

If your home has shifted and settled due to unstable soil, Ohio Basement Authority will install a pier system beneath your foundation to permanently stabilize and help lift it.

Steel helical piers or push piers are placed deep into the soil, bypassing problematic surface soils. They are advanced far enough until they hit bedrock or more stable load-bearing strata that won’t be affected by the elements.

Helical piers have screw-like blades on the ends of each pier, making it easier for them to “bite into” the soil. They are ideal to use on lighter structures.

Push piers, also known as resistance piers, offer the same support. They are manually pushed into the ground and work best with heavier buildings.

Basement wall waterproofing should be performed before starting the finishing process. This preventative measure protects against moisture seepage, mold, mildew, and wood rot, ensuring your basement remains permanently dry and healthy.
