After living in her house for 10 years, a homeowner in Hilliard, OH, began to notice a potential structural problem worsening over time. A horizontal crack on one of the foundation walls was getting larger, and the wall also appeared to be slightly tilting inward.
While these are common signs of foundation wall failure, they raised a red flag to the homeowner. She wanted to have these problems addressed before any serious damage resulted. As she researched repair possibilities, she came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online. She was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help her. She met with one of our inspectors who recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews then installed several Carbon Fiber supports on the problematic foundation wall. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to permanently stabilize it and prevent any further cracking or inward bowing. The darkly colored supports may not be the most attractive, but their low profile allows them to be easily concealed by paint or other basement finishing materials.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing her forever home will be a safe and stable living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.
