After living in their house for almost three years, homeowners in Powell, OH, started to notice some of the carpet in their basement was wet. This happened to be in the finished portion of the basement, and the homeowners were concerned any seeping water could result in significant damage.
The eagerly contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Angie’s List. When they met with one of our experienced inspectors, he pulled back some of the carpet and found water coming in through one of the coves in the basement. The inspector recommended some of our reliable waterproofing solutions, as well as an egress window installation in this area of livable space.
According to the International Residential Code for one-and Two-Family Dwellings, “Basements, habitable attics, and every sleeping room shall have at least one operable emergency escape and rescue opening. The answer is to have an egress window installed.
We took great care in installing these solutions, and the homeowners are very happy with the end result.
