Job Stories From Albany, OH
Permanent Foundation Stabilization with Helical and Push Piers in Albany, OH
When they moved into their house three years ago, homeowners in Albany, OH, noticed one of the foundation walls was cracking and did not appear to be level. They had this problematic wall rebuilt shortly after noticing this sign of foundation settlement, however the problems only continued. Now that the owners are trying to sell the house, they want to address these issues once and for all. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through our website. After meeting with one of our highly trained inspectors, the owners were equally excited for one of our expert crews to permanently stabilize the home. We installed several heavy-duty Helical Piers and Push Piers underneath the problematic, settling areas of the foundation. These durable galvanized steel piers were driven down to competent soil and attached to heavy-duty foundation brackets on the home’s footing. These piers permanently stabilize the foundation, help prevent further settlement, and offer the best opportunity to lift the settling section back to level. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing the house will be a safe and stable living environment for the next owners.
Reinforcing a Cracking Foundation Wall in Albany, OH
After living in their house for many years, homeowners in Albany, OH, started to notice possible structural issues. One of the foundation walls was cracking and slightly tilting inward. These are common signs of foundation wall failure, which will only worsen and result in significant safety hazards and costly repairs. In search of a permanent solution, the homeowners learned more about Ohio Basement Authority through online resources like Home Advisor. They were eager to contact us and meet with one of our expert inspectors. After completing a thorough evaluation of the home’s foundation, our inspector recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair products. One of our crews installed several Carbon Fiber supports on the problematic foundation wall. These heavy-duty supports permanently reinforce the foundation wall where they were installed, as well as prevent any further cracking and inward bowing. They also can easily be concealed by paint or drywall. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy solution has helped create a safe and stable living environment.
Repairing Leaking Wall in Albany, OH
Homeowners in Albany, OH, had flooding in their basement that ruined some family heirlooms. They noticed that one of their foundation walls was bowing, cracked, moist, and had paint peeling off. The flooding often happened after hard rains. They planned to live there long-term and were looking for a repair company to "do it right." After doing an Internet search, the homeowners called us to set up a free inspection and estimate. One of our certified inspectors met with them to discuss possible repair options. They decided that IntelliJack, replacement support beams, and our dehumidifier would be the best solutions for their situation and budget. One of our expert production crews came in and installed these products. An IntelliJack (typically used in crawl spaces) is a strong, steel jack that was used to replace an existing, failing support. They used I-beams to replace the other failing supports and stabilize the bowing and cracked wall. Finally, they set up a Basement Air System, which is a powerful dehumidifier which both dries and filters the air. Due to these reliable repairs, the homeowners feel much better about the state of their basement, and no longer worry that flooding will ruin their belongings.

After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority, the owner was eager to contact us for a permanent solution. After he met with one of our inspectors, the homeowner was eager for one of our crews to install one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions. We installed several Wall Anchors on the problematic foundation wall to permanently stabilize it. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors not only reinforce the wall, their unique design also allows them to be tightened for wall improvement. These anchors also offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall. The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing his home will be a safer living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.

I just purchased this home and after inspection we found out the radon levels are at 20. There is an unfinished crawl space and uncapped sump pump I am assuming both need to be taken care of. I would like someone to come out so we can see what the next steps should be and if a radon mitigation system needs to be installed. I also noticed you do foundation repairs as well. There are three cracks in the homes foundation that we were told by a specialist should be sealed. This is something we would also like to take care of. Please let me know what you think. Thank you - Marc

Athens, OH

The inspector’s presentation was just right. He answered my questions and didn’t oversell or get pushy.

I then chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the company’s professionalism and the belief that I was working with a larger organization that had a great reputation.

Other than the work performed, there was no clue your crew had been there. They worked quickly, professionally, and left no mess. Their use of the plastic wall to control dust was especially appreciated. Martin with the crew also was very nice.

I would call your company first if I ever needed additional services.

Albany Customer Testimonial

Athens, OH

The company representative I met with was very helpful and professional, and he answered all my questions.

I chose to work with the company because of the thoroughness of the inspection of the issue, the inspector’s explanation of the cause and cure, and why his fix would be better than any other type.

The foundation had a broken corner, due to settling. The work was to raise the foundation of the entire side of the house. The crew was very professional and easy to work with. They stayed to do the job right, even though it took a day longer than expected.

I really liked the thoroughness and the extra time they took to do the job right.

Prior to doing research about basement repair companies, I never paid attention to those types of businesses.

We interacted with two companies, one of which was Ohio Basement Authority. There is a consistency in every interaction with members of your team from the inspector to the service support via telephone, to the installation crew on site.

We chose Ohio Basement Authority because your inspector spoke to us in a cordial manner that established trust and displayed a level of expertise, and because he followed up with us. He was very detailed in his explanation of possible service options.

It was a long drive from Gahanna to Athens each day, but Drew was always clear and accurate with the start time for each of the three days. Each member of the crew was an extension of your staff of inspectors, providing helpful insight about the process along the way. Drew was an excellent leader of his crew and ambassador for your company.

I will certainly keep Ohio Basement Authority in mind if I come across friends or neighbors that need basement repair work.

I was looking on Angie’s List and they contacted me, and I decided to at least talk to them and get an estimate. The inspector’s presentation was very informative and he answered any questions we had. My husband decided to go with them after the presentation.

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the knowledge displayed by the representatives and the thorough printed documents left behind to review. I’ve also seen the company’s TV commercials, and we’ve had work done by them at our primary residence in Worthington. They were very helpful and thorough both times.

The office staff was courteous and helpful, and they kept us connected to the appropriate people whether it was getting back to the inspectors or the production staff.

The installation crew was very prompt, and I believe they called in advance to say when they were arriving. All three of them were very nice and friendly, and did whatever they could to please us and do a good job. The clean-up also was excellent.
