Photo Album: Permanently Waterproofing and Stabilizing a Problematic Basement in Marion, OH

Album Description

After living in her house for many years, a homeowner in Marion, OH, recently started to notice some problems in the basement. Along with areas of the foundation walls that were cracking and slightly tilting inward or bulging, water also was leaking into the basement during heavy rains.

Concerned with the health and structural integrity of her home, the owner was motivated to have these issues fixed once and for all. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing some of our TV ads, and she met with one of our inspectors. The inspector thoroughly evaluated the condition of the basement, and he then recommended having one of our crews install some of our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.

These included the BasementGutterĀ interior drainage system and SafeDri Prox sump pump. Any water that seeps inside the walls or floor will be intercepted by the sub-floor BasementGutter system and directed to the powerful SafeDri Prox. From there, the water is then pumped out of the basement and away from the homeā€™s foundation. An FreezeGard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.

The problematic foundation walls also were permanently stabilized by several Carbon Fiber supports. These durable supports adhere to the walls to hold them in their current positions. These supports also help protect the walls from any further cracking or inward bowing.

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