Sump Pump Upgrade and Other Installations Will Protect a Problematic Basement in Sunbury, OH

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Sunbury, OH, were motivated to address continuous problems in their basement once and for all. Water leaked inside the basement every time it rained, and this leakage seemed to occur in a section that also had walls that were cracking and tilting inward. The owners plan to live in the house for many years, so having a safe, dry and healthy living environment is important to them. As they began to research how to address these issues, they came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they started browsing through our website as well. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. After they did so, they met with Inspector Zeke Fowler who completed a thorough evaluation of the basement. After discussing his findings with the owners, as well as their goals for repair, Zeke then recommended some of our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions. Foreman Ben O'Bryant and his crew waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter and French drainage system. These systems intercept seeping water and direct it to the SafeDri sump pump that was installed to replace the older, failing sump pump system. Equipped with two powerful pumps inside the liner, the sump also features an external backup battery. This battery ensures the system will always operate and work to pump water out of the basement even during power outages. Additionally, a FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. Several Wall Anchors also were installed on the adjacent cracking, tilting foundation wall. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors permanently stabilize the walls, prevent any further cracking or inward bowing, and offer the best opportunity to straighten the walls because of their unique design. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safe, stable and dry forever home.

Waterproofing Upgrades Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Canal Winchester, OH

After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, homeowners in Canal Winchester, OH, reached out to us because they were interested in improving their exterior drainage system. The owners met with one of our inspectors who recommended upgrading the system by having one of our crews remove the above-ground pipes and place them in the ground. While at the home, our inspector also looked at the basement because the owners were concerned with water seeping in corners where the exterior drain lines were placed. Along with visible water intrusion and damage, our inspector noticed there was an inefficient sump pump system that was failing to keep up with the seeping water. The inspector then presented the homeowners with some reliable basement waterproofing solutions. Nate Klingenberger and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Triple sump pump, as well as exterior FreezeGuard attachments and new drainage lines. BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to drain into the SafeDri Triple sump pump system. This system features three powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery. Additionally, FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding if the lines freeze or become blocked. Newer, thicker pipe was used for the exterior drainage lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain far enough away from the home’s foundation. The homeowners can rest easier knowing all of these trustworthy solutions will work together to keep their home safe and dry.

SafeDri Triple Replaces Older Sump Pump to Keep a Basement Dry in Galena, OH

Homeowners in Galena, OH, have lived in their house for many years. They never noticed any problems with water intrusion until a couple of years ago. Since then, streams of water could be seen along their basement floor during periods of heavy rain. Even though they had a sump pump, it was no longer working efficiently enough to keep water out of the basement. It was covered by a lid, but a small section of it was open. This allows any water inside the sump pit to evaporate back into the basement and create additional moisture issues. Foreign objects can also fall inside and affect the pumping system. Because they use the basement for livable space and storage, the owners wanted to make sure it would be free of water. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and we replaced the older sump pump with the reliable SafeDri Triple that will always work to pump water out of the basement and away from the foundation. Other waterproofing products were installed including the BasementGutter interior drainage system that will catch any seeping water and drain it to the SafeDri. New downspout conductor lines were also installed, and FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines. The owners were pleased these permanent solutions were installed so their home will be a safe and dry living environment for many more years to come.

Forman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the sub-floor BasementGutter drainage system, SafeDri sump pump, and FreezeGuard attachment. BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footer in order to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water collected by BasementGutter is then directed to the SafeDri. The SafeDri system features two powerful pumps inside the liner, along with an external backup battery. The latter ensures the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement, even during power outages.
