The four cinder block basement walls in James F.'s Delaware, OH home were bowing so significantly that when he removed the drywall to inspect their condition, he could actually pull entire bricks off the wall. He was very concerned about his home's structural integrity. He knew he had to get help immediately.
James started to search for a trustworthy company in his area to handle the job, and when he checked with the Better Business Bureau, Ohio Basement Authority came in first place among reputable foundation contractors.
To restore James' basement, the crumbling walls had to be replaced. After securing the structure, the old walls were removed and new, rebar-reinforced walls were built.
Carbon strips were applied to the walls to further reinforce the structure.
The next step was to effectively address the cause of the problem -- water building up around the foundation and causing the soil to expand and push against the walls -- an interior drainage system with a powerful SafeDri Triple Sump pump system was installed, to collect and divert ground water as far away from the house as possible.
James now has a dry basement with reinforced walls that will remain stable for years to come.
James is very happy with the service and with the entire experience he had as a customer. So happy he is willing to recommend Ohio Basement Authority to anyone in the area with a basement or foundation problem.
