During the last couple of years, longtime homeowners in Westerville, OH, noticed possible structural problems were worsening. Several areas of the foundation walls were cracking, and some spots were visibly tilting inward.
These signs of foundation failure concerned the homeowners. They plan to live in the house for many more years, and they wanted to ensure the home’s structural integrity.
The owners discussed their concerns with a trusted friend, and their friend referred them to Ohio Basement Authority after recounting his remarkable repair experience with our company. The owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them, as well as meet with one of our inspectors. Inspector John Becker Sr. visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the home and its problematic foundation. He found that the walls were indeed moving, but he presented the owners with some of our reliable foundation repair solutions.
Based on John’s recommendations, the owners chose to have one of our crews, led by Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz, install several Carbon Fiber supports on the walls throughout the basement. These durable supports firmly adhere to the foundation walls to permanently stabilize them and hold them in their current positions. They also protect the walls from any further cracking or inward bowing, and can easily be concealed with paint or basement finishing materials. Any wall cracks also were filled and repaired.
The owners now have peace of mind knowing their forever home will now be a safer and stable living environment.
