Waterproofing Upgrades Will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Westerville, OH

Homeowners in Westerville, OH, were alarmed when they noticed evidence of water intrusion in their basement. But they knew they could count on Ohio Basement Authority for a reliable solution. They previously worked with us for a project to reinforce their cracking, tilting foundation walls. The owners were again eager to contact us, and they met with Inspector Jeff Floit. Jeff then completed a thorough assessment of the leaking basement, and he recommended some of our reliable waterproofing solutions. Forman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the sub-floor BasementGutter drainage system, SafeDri sump pump, and FreezeGuard attachment. BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footer in order to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water collected by BasementGutter is then directed to the SafeDri. The SafeDri system features two powerful pumps inside the liner, along with an external backup battery. The latter ensures the system will always operate to pump water out of the basement, even during power outages. Additionally, a FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding if the line should freeze or become blocked. The homeowners can rest easier knowing these trustworthy repairs are protecting their home.

Basement Waterproofing with SafeDri Sump Pump in Westerville,OH

During the last year, homeowners in Westerville, OH, began having major issues in their basement. It flooded a few times, their existing sump pump overflowed, and the discharge line froze. They wanted to address these issues right away and prevent them from happening again. Ohio Basement Authority replaced the failing sump pump with the SafeDri Battery Back-Up System. If the primary pump fails for any reason, such as a power outage, the battery back-up system automatically turns on. The exterior discharge line was also replaced by the FreezeGuard Sump Pump Discharge Line System, which allows water to escape from a sump pump discharge line if the pipe freezes or becomes blocked for any reason. These products will keep the homeowners' basement dry all the time!

These products will always keep water out of the basement and away from the foundation. The problematic foundation walls were corrected with the installation of several Wall Anchors. The heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors stabilize and help straighten the wall so it will no longer crack or bow inward. The homeowners can rest easier now that their basement is dry and stable!

Keeping a House in Gahanna, OH, Dry with a Sump Pump Upgrade and Waterproofing Solutions

Not long after moving into their house, homeowners in Gahanna, OH, discovered a problem in their basement. They pulled the carpet up from the floor and found water had leaked inside. They also questioned the operation of the existing sump pump system. After learning about Ohio Basement Authority from their realtor, the owners were eager to contact us to see exactly how we could help them create a dry home. After meeting with one of our experienced inspectors, the homeowners were equally excited for one of our crews to upgrade their basement waterproofing system. We installed the BasementGutter interior drainage system in the sub-floor to intercept any seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to a newer, more reliable sump pump system. We replaced the older, failing system with the SafeDri Battery Backup System. The SafeDri features a powerful 1/3 hp cast iron pump with a metal float switch inside the heavy-duty polyethylene liner. It also is equipped with a DC pump, charging system and battery, and will automatically turn on if the primary pump fails to operate. The SafeDri can pump out more than 11,000 gallons of water on a new, fully-charged battery. The back-up battery also enables the system to continue to operate even in the event of a power outage. The homeowners can rest easier knowing their home is protected by an updated, efficient basement waterproofing system.

The Leaking Basement of an Older Home in Worthington, OH, is Permanently Waterproofed

Homeowners in Worthington, OH, fell in love with the historic charm of their more than 100-year-old house a few years ago. However, they were concerned with water intrusion in the basement. They wanted to make sure the home would be a safe and dry living environment, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company on our website. We met the challenge of waterproofing a stone basement head-on, and installed several permanent solutions that will always keep the basement dry. These included the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Battery Back-Up sump pump system. These products create the perfect waterproofing combination because the BasementGutter catches any seeping water and directs it to the SafeDri, which pumps it out of the basement and away from the foundation. The powerful sump pump system was installed inside the larger SafeDri sump pump liner for easy future system upgrades. New downspout conductor lines were also installed on the property, and a FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. An energy-efficient dehumidifier was also installed to dry and filter the air, as well as prevent mold and reduce odors. The owners were also concerned with the stone walls, so the CrawlSeal wall system was installed. CrawlSeal is more commonly used to encapsulate crawl spaces, but this durable liner can also be installed on foundation walls. Along with improving the walls’ appearance, CrawlSeal stops water vapor from permeating the walls and drains wall leaks. The owners were excited these various permanent solutions were installed so their home will be a healthier living environment for many more years to come.
