As they considered purchasing a house in Galion, OH, interested home buyers were concerned about structural issues they noticed in the basement. Several areas of the foundation walls were cracking, and gaps between some of the blocks were visible.
The buyers didn’t want to have to worry about the safety and structural integrity of the house, so they started to research repair options. During their fact-finding, they came across information online about Ohio Basement Authority. They were motivated to contact us for further assistance, and they met with one of our inspectors.
One of our inspectors completed a thorough evaluation of the 50-year-old house and its problematic foundation walls. Our inspector also measured the walls for deflection and movement, and he determined that these walls in question were settling. He then presented the home buyers with one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
Foreman Ben O’Bryant and his crew then installed several Push Piers underneath the settling foundation walls.
After the crew dug down to expose the footing, heavy-duty steel brackets were secured. Rugged steel tubes then were driven through the brackets to more competent soils. The weight of the house as then transferred through the piers to load bearing strata. This ensures no further settlement will occur, and the walls can be lifted back to level.
The new homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair project has helped them create a safer living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
