While homeowners in Pataskala, OH, have lived in their house since it was built six years ago, they recently noticed a problem in their basement after heavy rains. Water leaked into several areas, leaving behind wet carpet and drywall.
The owners wanted to make sure their basement and home would be healthy and safe, so they started to research basement waterproofing systems. They found information about Ohio Basement Authority online and were eager to contact us for further guidance. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the leaking basement. Our inspector then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our crews first removed the existing drywall and insulation from the walls, and then began to install solutions including the BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri Battery Backup System, CrawlSeal wall system, and exterior FreezeGuard attachment.
BasementGutter was placed in the sub-floor to catch seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water intercepted by BasementGutter is directed to the SafeDri system, which features two powerful pumps inside its liner along with an external backup battery. The sump then pumps this water out of the home and away from the foundation. Additionally, a FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line to prevent flooding from frozen or blocked lines.
In place of the older insulation, we covered the walls with the CrawlSeal wall system. CrawlSeal typically is used to encapsulate crawl spaces, but it also is useful in basements. This thick and durable liner is completely waterproof, and it helps direct any seeping water from the walls down to the BasementGutter system in the floor.
The homeowners are happy to now have a more reliable basement waterproofing system to help keep their home safe and dry for many years to come.
After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, homeowners in Canal Winchester, OH, reached out to us because they were interested in improving their exterior drainage system.
The owners met with one of our inspectors who recommended upgrading the system by having one of our crews remove the above-ground pipes and place them in the ground.
While at the home, our inspector also looked at the basement because the owners were concerned with water seeping in corners where the exterior drain lines were placed. Along with visible water intrusion and damage, our inspector noticed there was an inefficient sump pump system that was failing to keep up with the seeping water. The inspector then presented the homeowners with some reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
Nate Klingenberger and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Triple sump pump, as well as exterior FreezeGuard attachments and new drainage lines.
BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing in order to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to drain into the SafeDri Triple sump pump system. This system features three powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery.
Additionally, FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines to prevent flooding if the lines freeze or become blocked. Newer, thicker pipe was used for the exterior drainage lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain far enough away from the home’s foundation.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing all of these trustworthy solutions will work together to keep their home safe and dry.
Homeowners in Reynoldsburg, OH, have lived in their house since it was built almost 40 years ago. Various repairs have been completed during that time, including installing structural steel I-Beams and sealing the walls to reinforce the cracking foundation walls. Water also leaked into the basement though these foundation wall cracks, saturating the walls and floor and leaving puddles and visible damage behind. This resulted in an unsightly and unhealthy basement.
The homeowners’ son wanted to help his parents correct these issues so the basement and the rest of the home would be a healthy living environment. He knew he could count on one of his friends, an inspector with Ohio Basement Authority, to help him in this venture. Inspector Brendan Kent completed a thorough evaluation of the basement, and he presented his friend and the homeowners with several reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
One of our experienced crews transformed the basement by installing the BasementGutter interior drainage system to catch any water that might seep through the wall and floor. The crew also replaced the older sump pump system with the SafeDri ProX sump pump. The SafeDri features a powerful Zoeller ® 1/3 hp sump pump that can pump more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour out of a basement. This system was installed in the larger SafeDri Triple liner to allow for easy future upgrades.
A FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this line was tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property.
The CrawlSeal wall system was used to cover the unsightly walls and help with waterproofing. Any seeping water will run behind the liner and down to the BasementGutter system below. The CrawlSeal liner also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier.
The homeowners and their son now have peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped create a safer living environment.
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.
A tenant in Hilliard, OH, recently notified his landlord of water that was leaking into the basement. The owner of the home knew he could count on Ohio Basement Authority for the perfect solution. He previously chose to work with us on a crawl space encapsulation project in his personal home.
After meeting with one of our inspectors, the owner was eager to again work with us on upgrading his rental property’s basement waterproofing system.
One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri sump pump and CrawlSeal wall system.
BasementGutter was placed in the sub-floor and atop the footing to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the SafeDri sump pump system that was installed to replace the inefficient system. The SafeDri features two powerful pumps inside the sump liner, as well as an external backup battery that ensures the system’s continued operation even during power outages. CrawlSeal also was placed on the walls to improve their appearance and assist with waterproofing. Any water that leaks inside the walls will automatically run behind the liner and into the BasementGutter system.
The owner, as well as the tenant, is happy to have a more reliable waterproofing system to keep the home healthy and dry.
We provide several varieties of perimeter drain and French drain systems, allowing us to adapt to every basement’s individual needs. The specially designed systems trap water as it enters the basement and drains it to the sump pump, preventing standing water and pooling.
