Photo Album: Creating a bigger basement for Gahanna, OH, homeowners

Album Description

Homeowners in Gahanna wanted a bigger basement than what their 24-year-old home offered. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority for help. One of our certified inspectors suggested completely digging out the crawl space to the basement level in order to give them more room.

Fifty-one feet of the foundation wall was rebuilt with a new footer and reinforced with rebar. A new foundation wall was built replacing the existing crawl space wall to make it the same height of the existing basement. Fifty-one feet of interior waterproofing was also installed along with a SafeDri Triple sump pump.
