After only living in their house for a few months, homeowners in Urbana, OH, noticed a glaring problem in their basement. Water leaked into the basement every time it rained, and one instance resulted in several inches of water on the floor. It also was obvious that the existing sump pump system was failing to keep up with this seeping water.
The owners would like to live in the house for many years, and they did not want to have to worry about flooding or damage every time the sky opened up. As they began to research potential repairs, the owners came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. Inspector Jacob Thomas visited the home to complete a thorough evaluation of the basement. Jacob then suggested some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Prox sump pump. BasementGutter was placed in the sub-floor to catch leaking water. This water is then directed to the SafeDri to be pumped out of the home. A FreezeGuard also was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy solutions are protecting their house to keep it dry for many years to come.
