Foundation Problem Signs

Foundation damage is often complex. There are several evident problem signs you will notice such as wall cracks, bowing basement walls, and uneven floors. Others, including cracking and leaning chimneys, sticking doors and windows, drywall nail pops, and foundation settlement, can go unnoticed yet be indicative of more serious issues. Foundation damage will merely worsen, become more dangerous, and be more expensive to fix over time. If you’re in doubt, contact your local foundation repair specialists at Ohio Basement Authority to thoroughly evaluate your home’s foundation. 

Causes of Foundation Damage

Your home’s foundation problems might result from a variety of factors. However, the most common causes stem from the soil. Our area’s soil is primarily silty, but it also contains some degrees of clay and sand. It may or may not quickly drain water from the region’s frequent precipitation – an average of 40 inches of rain and 22 inches of snow annually – so the soil is typically wet and unstable. Unsteady, expanding, moist soil exacerbates the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure, two phenomena that cause foundations to crack and leak. 

Foundation Repair Solutions

Depending on your home’s foundation type, the extent of the damage, and other factors, your home will benefit from a number of foundation repair solutions. If the foundation is settling, piering or underpinning methods like helical piers or push piers permanently stabilize and can possibly lift the structure. Carbon fiber straps reinforce cracking and bowing walls, and wall anchors or specialized wall repair beams can straighten walls over time. Additionally, crawl space support posts reinforce and can help lift sagging floors and floor joists. Everything we install is customizable and protected by transferrable, long-term, nationally backed warranties. 

Why Choose Ohio Basement Authority

They are common problems, but Ohio Basement Authority can help resolve these issues for good. After a free inspection, we’ll recommend the solutions most suited to the unique needs of your foundation. 

Our crews and inspectors have an in-depth understanding of how the region’s poor soil and persistent rain affect houses and their foundations.

8.31.2023Update.After miscommunication I believe we are all set and we will see how it functions!That was fixed.Just waiting on final finished walls to be done which would have been next week but I couldn't do that so will be the following!And now my 2 year old washing machine is leaking from the bottom. If I knew this was going to completely ruin capacity to do laundry……they should have extended the sump pump.Or said you can't use your washer dryer.Got a call yesterday and he had no clue what was discussed discussed aND still needed to be fixed. From Friday evening To Monday 4 pm it was never communicated..So Day three and the plumber was sent out as promised. Matt who was the person I met first who does the assessments now is really great at being hands-on. I met with one of their competitors the day after Matt came. Matt struck me as honest and I read BBB reviews. Ohio Basement stood out because they remedied issues. The other guys did not. The others tried to get me…all 3 of them …to sign that night. Which made me want to say my doors here…bye! Matt simply told me facts. He came out tonight and moved my washer back for me. He told me a plumber was coming and they did. They guys who worked on the basement were really nice and professional. My basement crawl space no longer smells and the musty basement odor is reduced significantly already.A few loose ends which Matt is working on will be fixed and it'll be 5 stars.

We had our Basement waterproofed and everyone we worked with was excellent! Jacob came out to assess our basement and was professional, friendly, and not at all pushy or trying to sell us something we didn't need. We decided to be proactive and waterproof our basement. Aaron Ison and his team came to our house over a 2 day period and were great! Very professional, explained everything they were doing throughout the process, and kept everything clean. It was a great experience and would recommend them for all your basement needs.

These guys were awesome five plus stars I own an old home, and the crawlspace was very nasty when I got it, but I called Ohio Basement authority, and they came out, did a free inspection, and gave me finance options. I did a crawlspace encapsulation, and they are very affordable. They came out, and it only took them about 2 days to finish thanks guys 🙂

Travis came out to the house on time and was super friendly and helpful. Turns out my walls were already fixed and didn’t need to be repaired by then. He was very helpful and letting me know how I could fix it on my own and didn’t need their service. I am very thankful for honest businesses who don’t try and sell you something you don’t need! Thank you Travis!
