    Company chosen based on information on Internet and meetings with Andrew. Plenty of information. I would recommend this company to others. In particular, the work of Milton and his crew was outstanding. Attention was given to make sure no dust/dirt got into belongings and the rest of the house. They were very helpful and answered all questions, and very pleasant people to have working in our home for three days.

    I’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority on television, and I chose to work with the company because of recommendations from people that have had work done.

    The inspector I met with was very friendly and informative. Just the nicest guy you would ever want to deal with. And the crew was just amazing. I could not have been happier with the work and the manner in which it was done.

    I found Ohio Basement Authority on Google, then I read reviews and interviewed you as well as another company. You were obviously more astute, had less of a salesman style, and were more competent based on interactions and follow-up. The basement science books also are an excellent source of info. I then chose to work with the company because of the appearance of better technology and competent people. The price was also better. I have a pretty high regard for Andrew. He is thorough and listens well. And Rich was great to work with. He’s good at his job, plus intelligent and curious about the world, and he had a good sense of humor. I enjoyed the experience a lot.

    I saw Ohio Basement Authority’s TV commercial, and I chose to work with you because a relative recommended you after you worked on their home. Andrew was friendly and easy to talk to. His presentation was excellent, and he called to make sure the installation went well. I also really appreciated the information packet so that I could further review your company and products. Martine and his crew were excellent in every aspect of their job! I appreciated that they called when they were on their way to my home, and they were very nice people.

    A friend in West Virginia had a system installed by Basement Systems of West Virginia, which used the BasementGutter drain system, and he highly recommended it. Andrew was very informative and professional, gave a wonderful, quality presentation, and answered all of our questions. When we wanted to make changes, he had the revision to us within minutes of talking. Colin and his crew were exceptional during installation. He called several times to let me know when they would arrive each day. The crew was very polite and professional, and they kept us informed of every step of the installation. We could not be happier with the work performed. It was a pleasure having them in our home, and we highly recommend them.

    We chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the excellent customer service from the start, feeling confident that the work would be done well, and that it had a lifetime guarantee.

    The entire staff was very helpful and quick to respond to questions/needs. The inspector was very professional and provided a thorough explanation of the problems and steps to resolve it.

    The three men – Martine, Josiah and Jeremiah, were such hard workers. They were incredibly kind, considerate and respectful of our space and home. They offered me a mask when I entered the area, and Martine stopped his work to talk to me if/when I came downstairs. I appreciated the extra time they took to cover traffic areas and furniture with plastic wrap. They completed the job quickly but with such quality. They did an excellent job with cleanup and left things better than they were before!

    Properly Sealing and Insulating a Crawl Space in Dublin, OH

    A new homeowner in Dublin, OH, was eager to move into her house and make it her own. As she did, she detected some problems in the basement like dampness, mustiness and unpleasant odors. She started using the area for storage, and she didn’t want to have to worry about any of her belongings becoming damaged.

    As she began to search for repair possibilities, the owner found information about Ohio Basement Authority. She wanted to contact us to meet with one of our inspectors and learn more about how we could help her. Inspector Andrew Rothenberg visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the home.

    Andrew found some evidence of water intrusion in the basement, along with an unhealthy and unsightly crawl space. This area adjacent to the basement was not properly sealed or insulated, and the fiberglass insulation was starting to show signs of mold growth. This could be a big contributor to the odors the owner was worried about. Andrew then recommended the perfect repair solutions.

    Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then took great care to remove the nuisances from the crawl space. The crawl space was then encapsulated with thick and durable CrawlSeal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is a moisture and vapor barrier that also helps insulate the crawl space. The crawl space was further insulated with ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls.

    To address the water intrusion, our crew placed the BasementGutter drainage system in the sub-floor. Any seeping water from the walls and floor will be intercepted by BasementGutter and then directed to drain into the existing sump pump system that the homeowner wanted to keep.

    A dehumidifier also was installed in the basement to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth.

    The owner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped her create a safer and healthier home.
