    Martin, Alex and Angel were really awesome workers! They were courteous and very professional. Martin always took his time to explain what was going on with the job. All three did a great job cleaning up, but I must say, Martin went above and beyond the clean-up expectations.

    The representative and his presentation were very good. Victor presented options to us, but did not pressure us. Nice, low-key sales. The products sell and seal the deal. I'd recommend Victor to others.

    I chose the company because of the timeliness of getting to our job (the wait time was not that long), and the price was competitive with another company that was going to use inferior egress materials.

    Mike did a good job installing the window. I appreciate the good work. The assistants were good also.

    We had a tight spot to get the equipment back there, but the crew did great work in getting it through without tearing stuff up. They understood my concerns. Only a pro could have done it. I appreciate their work!

    I was a little nervous about the process. But I was assured that you would be in charge of everything, and you were. It was very easy.

    I have seen Ohio Basement Authority online, as well as their trucks.

    The representative gave a good presentation, and I understood what needed done. I got a quote and it sounded good, so I never obtained a second quote.

    The installation guys were very friendly and did good, quality work. They are hard workers.

    I am a repeat customer. I chose Ohio Basement Authority because of a recommendation from a previous customer, and I had a positive experience with OBA on another job two years ago.

    Victor is a fine gentleman, and he really went above and beyond the call of duty in providing the estimate.

    Not only was Victor on time, but he was a bit early. I must say that he was very, very polite, knowledgeable, and informative. Answers were provided in a manner that I could understand, and he even worked to cut costs where appropriate. I think that Ohio Basement Authority has a true asset in Victor. I would like to extend a special thanks to him and the company for the time and energy expended during the process.

    I felt that the booklet made it possible for me to understand more thoroughly the process involved and options available for the waterproofing process. I very much appreciate the pre-visit educational materials.

    I had notes in hand and addressed them with Victor prior to the inspection. We discussed them afterward and the estimate was developed based on the priorities at hand. The pre-visit information assisted me in developing the list, as well as questions raised by my brother who is in the construction business. Victor thoroughly addressed each issue.

    Victor even went to the extent of reviewing his photographs after leaving and contacted me with possible cost saving ideas. I'm telling you he is a true treasure.

    Development of the estimate took some time, as quite a few issues were being addressed. I really do appreciate the time and energy Victor gave throughout the process.

    Victor was courteous and not too pushy. It was nice that he worked within my financial limitations.

    I chose Ohio Basement Authority because the inspector knew what he was talking about, and they installed the brand of piers I already had put in.

    I thought the crew was great! They were very hardworking and great to talk to. All of them represented the company well, and Joe did a great job answering questions.

    I heard about Ohio Basement Authority on TV and Home Advisor.

    The procedures for fixing my foundation to my garage, as well as the financing, were explained fully. I really never checked with another company.

    The installation crew arrived on time, ready to go to work. The foundation repair took three days, and the crew worked hard all three days to complete the fix. Joe and his crew were very courteous, and they did a good job on the clean-up.

    Sealing a Nasty Crawl Space Improves a Home's Health in Dublin, OH

    After working with Ohio Basement Authority on several of his other rental properties, a homeowner was eager to contact us again when he noticed health issues with a house he owns in Dublin, OH. The owner noticed the crawl space was full of debris and failing insulation and floor matting. These conditions can greatly affect the health of the rest of the home, and the owner wanted to make sure it would be an ideal living environment for his future tenants.

    After contacting us and consulting with the same trusted inspector, Victor Golowin, the owner was eager for us to transform the nasty crawl space. After the debris and older insulation was removed, one of our experienced repair crews, led by Foreman Manuel Inguil, encapsulated the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner.

    Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is thick and durable. It completely isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. It is tough enough to crawl on, and its durability is further enhanced by thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process. This makes the crawl space an ideal area for storage.

    The owner was happy to call on Ohio Basement Authority again, and he is pleased with the outcome of the repair project.

    A Failing Retaining Wall in Fredericktown, OH, is Permanently Stabilized

    Maintaining a safe and stable home is important to longtime homeowners in Fredericktown, OH. That is why they were motivated to address a worsening structural issue before it resulted in serious damage.

    The homeowners noticed the exterior retaining wall adjacent to their garage was beginning to cracking and bow outward. Retaining walls can fail due to a variety of issues including poor construction and hydrostatic pressure exerted on the wall by the soil.

    The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads, and we installed some of our many reliable foundation repair products. These included a Helical Pier and two Wall Anchors. Both of these durable products permanently stabilize, straighten, and reinforce the retaining wall.

    The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped them create a safer living environment.
