During the last year, a longtime homeowner in Creola, OH, started to notice problems with one of her home’s foundation walls getting worse. This wall was cracking and had several areas of gaps between the blocks. These are common signs of foundation failure and settlement, but they will only worsen and result in safety hazards and expensive repairs the longer they are neglected.
Some attempts to fix the wall were completed by another company, but they failed to properly repair and support the wall. As the homeowner started to research other repair options, she saw Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads. She was then motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help her.
The owner then met with Inspector Jacob Thomas. Jacob completed a thorough evaluation of the wall, and he then discussed his findings and the owner’s goals for repair with her. He then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews, led by Foreman Ben O’Bryant, then installed a few Push Piers underneath the settling foundation wall. These heavy-duty piers permanently stabilize the wall and offer the best opportunity to lift it back to the proper level.
The homeowner was pleased these trustworthy repairs were completed so she can now have a safe and structurally sound living environment.
