Every day is a great day at Ohio Basement Authority, especially this month. June is National Healthy Homes Month, and you can celebrate with us in a variety of ways!
All of us at Ohio Basement Authority are committed to helping homeowners create safer and healthier living environments for their families. We want only the best for our customers, which is why we are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and only installing the highest quality permanent repair solutions.
What areas can we help you with?
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development lists “keeping your home dry” as the No. 1 principal of a healthy home.
You will never have to worry about a leaking or flooded basement again when we install the BasementGutter interior drainage system along with one of our many reliable Zoeller sump pump systems. These include the SafeDri ProX, SafeDri Sump, and SafeDri Triple Sump. Additional products that enhance these basement waterproofing measures are the FreezeGuard and YardWell attachments.
We need air to live, and it’s important for that air to be as clean as possible. It is not visible, but anything in the air affects your well-being. That includes radon.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is produced by the decay of uranium in rocks and soil. It is present across the country, but it is extremely dangerous. Exposure to radon has been linked to more than 20,000 deaths every year, and it is a leading cause of lung cancer. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 60 percent of Ohio’s counties are estimated to have elevated levels of radon.
Ohio Basement Authority is state licensed and certified to handle radon testing and mitigation, and we can install mitigation systems that will help get the levels of radon in your home as low as possible.
We also can install powerful, yet energy-efficient dehumidifiers in your basement or crawl space. Our two models will clean, purify and filter your home’s air, as well as help control moisture and humidity.
Crawl spaces are often forgotten areas of the home. Many homeowners will never venture into their crawl spaces, but it’s important to know what may be lurking in these areas under their homes. Whatever is in your crawl space also is in your home affecting you. Nasty crawl spaces with leaking water, moist and failing insulation, and rotting floor joists can be hazardous to the rest of the home.
The best way to address these nasty areas is to have us install a waterproofing system – the CrawlDrain drainage system and SafeDri sump pump – and completely encapsulate the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. ExTremeBloc insulation also enhances energy-efficiency.
It’s natural for homes to experience structural issues as they age. A common cause of foundation wall failure is hydrostatic pressure. As the exterior soil becomes saturated with water, it exerts pressure on the walls. The continuous cycle takes its toll on the walls, and they can begin to crack or bow inward. It’s important to address these issues the moment you notice them, otherwise your home will be unsafe and it will cost more to repair the longer you neglect these signs.
We have several reliable foundation repair products that will permanently stabilize the walls and prevent further cracking, bowing or settling. Many of these solutions also offer the opportunity to straighten the walls and lift the home back to level. They include Carbon Fiber supports, IntelliBrace beams, Wall Anchors, IntelliJacks, Helical Piers and Push Piers.
