SafeDri Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Basement Dry in Proctorville, OH

After living in his house for two years, a homeowner in Proctorville, OH, was becoming concerned with the condition of the existing sump pump system. The system is approximately 10 years old. While nothing major was wrong with it, the homeowner noticed the metal sump pit starting to deteriorate and sediment was accumulating. The system also lacked a lid, which can allow water in the pit to evaporate back into the basement. Debris and other objects also could fall in and damage or clog the system. The homeowner wanted to make sure he would have a reliable system to always keep the basement dry, so he contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us online. We upgraded the older metal system to a newer plastic-based system that will not rust or corrode. The reliable SafeDri Battery Back-up system will always work to keep the basement dry. Additional waterproofing solutions that were installed included an FreezeGuard attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, new downspout conductor lines, and YardWell outlets to camouflage the ends of these lines. The open crawl space vents also were sealed with exterior vent covers. The owner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable installations have helped him create a safer and healthier home that he will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.

Stabilizing Cracking, Tilting Walls with Carbon Fiber Supports in Ontario, OH

They have lived in their house for 14 years, but homeowners in Ontario, OH, just noticed some significant changes in their foundation walls within the last year.

Motivated to find the best permanent solution, the homeowners began to research repair options.

Waterproofing and Encapsulation Projects Transform a Nasty Crawl Space in Upper Sandusky, OH

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 CrawlDrain drainage system and SafeDri sump pump. Any seeping water will be intercepted by the CrawlDrain system and directed to the sump to be pumped out of the crawl space. A FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and a YardWell 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 CrawlSeal 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 ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls. Additionally, a 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 access door 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.

Properly Sealing a Crawl Space in Pickerington, OH

After living in his house for more than 20 years, a homeowner in Pickerington, OH, was preparing to sell the home. But he knew he needed to address some issues in the basement including past water intrusion. The owner contacted Ohio Basement Authority after hearing about our company and our services. He met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the home. During his evaluation, our inspector also pointed out an unsightly and unhealthy partial crawl space adjacent to the basement. He then presented the owner with some of our reliable basement waterproofing and crawl space repair solutions. One of our crews removed the debris and failing liner from the crawl space, placed durability-enhancing drainage matting on the crawl space floor, and then encapsulated this area in CrawlSeal liner. CrawlSeal is a thick and durable liner similar to swimming pool liner. It completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. CrawlSeal is 100% waterproof, and has been treated with an anti-microbial coating to prevent mold and mildew build-up. CrawlSeal also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. The basement also was waterproofed with the sub-floor BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri sump pump, and exterior FreezeGuard attachment. The previous owner and new homeowner both are pleased these trustworthy solutions were installed to help ensure the health and safety of the home.
