Photo Album: Stabilizing Sagging Floors and Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Hilliard, OH

Album Description

Since moving into his house one year ago, a homeowner in Hilliard, OH, has noticed a few problems beginning to get worse. Several areas of the first floor of the home appeared to be sagging and out of level, and water leaked into the basement during heavy rains.

The homeowner wanted to fix these issues before any serious damage resulted, so he began to research how to properly address them. He was eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. He met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the leaking basement and sagging floors. Our inspector recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions, as well as several trustworthy basement waterproofing solutions.

One of our crews then worked to complete these repair projects. Several steel support beams were installed underneath the floor joists in the basement. These beams, as well as the above floor and floor joists, were then reinforced by several IntelliJacks. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel supports permanently stabilize the floor joists and help raise the floor back to level. They also will not rust or corrode. IntelliJacks are designed to stop settling, but can easily be adjusted if any settlement occurs.

The basement also was waterproofed with the sub-floor BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri Prox sump pump, and FreezeGuard exterior sump pump discharge attachment. The walls also were covered with CrawlSeal liner to assist with the waterproofing process.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing these repair projects have helped him create a safe, stable, and dry living environment.
