Homeowners in Westerville, OH, noticed cracks in their foundation walls, which were also bowing due to hydrostatic pressure. As water saturates the backfill soils around a foundation, the water exerts pressure against the wall.
Based on a local structural engineer's recommendations, the homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority. Our crews completed several foundation repair and waterproofing projects.
Existing steel I-Beams were replaced, CarbonFiber wall supports and a CarbonFiber corner strap was installed, and a Helical TieBack and Wall Anchor were also installed. Waterproofing methods included the installation of a footer drain, a French drain, and the BasementGutter drainage system.
The homeowners are now happy to have a dry and stable home!
