Homeowners in McDermott, OH, have lived in their house since it was built more than 40 years ago. During that time, they’ve witnessed a couple glaring problems only continuing to get worse. The basement seemed to always leak, and several areas of the walls were cracking.
The owners were ready to fix these issues once and for all, so they started to research potential repairs. They were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online. They met with Drew Black who completed a thorough evaluation of the basement. Drew then presented the owners with several of our reliable basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews, led by Foreman Milton Castro, then waterproofed the large basement with the BasementGutter and grated drainage systems, as well as two SafeDri Prox sump pumps. Any leaking water will be intercepted by the sub-floor BasementGutter system and section of grated drainage pipe in front of the walk-out access point. The SafeDri is then pump this water out of the basement.
Several Carbon Fiber supports also were installed on the cracking walls to permanently reinforce them and prevent any further cracking or inward bowing.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing they finally have a dry and stable home because of these reliable repairs.
