After months of working with a general contractor, the head of a sorority board of directors in Athens, OH, was ready to move on to a more reliable repair. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online, and she was eager to learn more about how we could help.
The board previously hired a contractor to stabilize the sagging floors of the more than 100-year-old sorority house. This was not a good experience, as the contractor was not effectively working to repair the issues. One of our inspectors noted the light-duty jack posts the contractor installed were not sufficiently supporting the above floors. Our inspector then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
Along with steel support beams, one of our crews installed several IntelliJacks throughout the basement to stabilize the above floors and help raise them back to level. These heavy-duty supports are made of galvanized steel, making them rust and corrosion resistant. While IntelliJacks are designed to stop settling, they can easily be adjusted if any settling occurs.
The board is pleased these trustworthy solutions were installed to help stabilize the house for its student residents for many years to come.
After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Glouster, OH, recently noticed some potential structural issues with their foundation walls. Some sections of the walls were showing signs of failure in the form of stair-step cracks, and daylight could be seen through a series of these cracks in another one of the walls. The latter indicates foundation settlement.
The homeowners were concerned these problems would only worsen, so they wanted to address them as soon as possible. As they researched repair options, they were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through our website. After meeting with one of our expert inspectors, the owners were equally excited for us to install one type of our many reliable foundation repair products.
We installed several Helical Piers underneath the problematic areas of the foundation. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel piers are driven down to competent soil so they can permanently stabilize the foundation walls. The piers also offer the best opportunity to lift the settling foundation back to level.
The homeowners were pleased this trustworthy solution was installed to help them create a safe and stable living environment.
After living in her house for seven years, a homeowner in Nelsonville, OH, was beginning to notice cracks in one of her foundation walls. She was worried about these cracks getting worse and possibly affecting the safety and resale value of her home.
She knew she could count on Ohio Basement Authority for a permanent solution, and she was eager for one of our reliable repair crews to install several steel I-beams on the cracking foundation wall. These sturdy beams reinforce the wall and prevent further movement.
The homeowner is pleased to have a permanent foundation repair solution that will stabilize her home for many years to come.
Homeowners in New Albany, OH, have lived in their house for almost five years. While their home has been dry and structurally sound, they have been thinking about adding a basement-level access point.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our expert crews installed a walk-out egress area in the northeast corner of the home.
The foundation was first excavated down to the basement level. Then the wall was cut and a door was installed on the exterior north foundation wall. Two retaining foundation walls were built, concrete pads were poured, and concrete steps were also installed.
The homeowners are pleased to now have an additional access point to their house, where they plan to live for many years.
