Homeowners in Chillicothe, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 13 years ago. During that time, they have been keeping an eye on potential structural failure. The foundation walls in the partially finished portion of the basement had minimal cracking, but the walls in the unfinished area had more severe signs of horizontal and stair-step cracking patterns. Some areas also seemed to be tilting inward.
Concerned for the safety and structural integrity of their home, the owners wanted to have these problems fixed before any serious damage resulted. They started to research how to best address these issues, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. They were eager to meet with one of our inspectors to see exactly how we could help them.
After assessing the condition of the problematic walls, our inspector then presented the homeowners with two types of our many reliable foundation repair solutions. One of our crews then installed Carbon Fiber supports on the less severely cracking walls, and four IntelliBrace beams on the more problematic wall.
Both of these solutions permanently stabilize the walls where they are installed, and they protect the wall from any further cracking or bowing. The Carbon Fiber straps hold the walls in their current position, and the IntelliBrace beams can be adjusted for wall improvement.
The homeowners now have peace of minding knowing the home will be a safe and structurally sound living environment for many years to come because of these trustworthy solutions.
