They have lived in their house for 14 years, but homeowners in Ontario, OH, just noticed some significant changes in their foundation walls within the last year. Several areas of the walls were cracking and appeared to be tilting inward. These issues, which are signs of foundation failure, were only worsening over time.
Motivated to find the best permanent solution, the homeowners began to research repair options. After they found Ohio Basement Authority’s website, they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who completed a thorough evaluation of the home. Jacob then presented the owners with one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews then permanently stabilized the problematic foundation walls by installing several Carbon Fiber supports. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the walls to hold them in their current positions, as well as prevent any further cracking and inward bowing. The low profile of these straps allows them to easily be concealed with paint or other basement finishing materials. Any cracks along the walls also were filled and repaired.
The homeowners are pleased to now have a safe and stable forever home because of this repair project.
