Photo Album: Waterproofing a Leaking Basement of an Aging House in Richwood, OH

Album Description

A couple fell in love with an older home in Richwood, OH, and they were excited to purchase it and move into it. As they began to unpack their belongings and make the home forever their own, they realized some issues in the basement. Water appeared to be seeping inside and leaving visible damage and puddles behind. Because they plan to live in the house for many years, the owners wanted to make sure the almost 100-year-old house would be safe and healthy.

They started to research repair options, and they were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the older home’s leaking basement. He then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions. The owners wanted to get multiple opinions about how to address their basement, but they were most impressed with our quality solutions and how our inspector educated them by thoroughly explaining the problem and the right solution.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement by installing the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Triple sump pump. Any seeping water from the walls and floor is intercepted by the BasementGutter system and directed to the powerful and trustworthy SafeDri Triple sump pump.

Additionally, FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, a FloodRing was placed around the water tank and connected to the BasementGutter system, and the CrawlSeal Wall System was also used on the basement walls to assist with the waterproofing process.

The homeowners can rest easier knowing these solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier forever home.
