A homeowner in Columbus, OH, is frequently in her crawl space and uses the area for storage. After noticing water leaking from the wall, she wanted to address the problem before it worsened.
Ohio Basement Authority installed the complete CrawlSeal Crawl Space Encapsulation System. First the CrawlDrain drainage system leading to a SafeDri Pro pump was installed. Drainage matting was then placed on the floor, and the entire crawl space was encapsulated with CrawlSeal liner. ExTremeBloc insulation panels were installed on the walls, replacing the failing fiberglass insulation.
With all of these products, both the walls and floor are insulated. This energy-efficient solution allows the homeowner to fully utilize this now healthy and dry space.
During the last two years of living in his Columbus, OH, house, a homeowner noticed bowing and cracking in his foundation walls getting worse.
Concerned with the home's structural integrity and safety, he contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our expert crews repaired the interior and exterior cracks, and installed a total of 11 Carbon Fiber wall supports on the problematic north and west foundation walls. These sturdy supports will permanently stabilize the walls, and prevent further cracking and inward movement.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing his home will now be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come.
Homeowners in Columbus, OH, have lived in their house for almost 40 years. During the last several years, they have been monitoring some of the home's foundation walls that were beginning to fail. Even after attempting various repairs themselves, such as patching the drywall, the problem was getting worse.
Concerned with the home's structural integrity, they contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our expert crews excavated the area outside the problematic foundation walls, digging down to the footer. From the inside, the walls were pushed back to as plumb as possible.
A total of 11 strong Carbon Fiber wall supports were also placed on these walls to additionally reinforce them and further prevent any cracking and bowing.
All interior and exterior cracks were filled, and exterior damp proofing was applied to the walls to prevent moisture from entering the basement. The soil was then replaced.
The homeowners are pleased their home will now be stable for many years!
She lived in her Columbus, OH, house for 27 years, but a homeowner wanted to sell the property. She wanted to be sure it would be structurally sound for future owners, and she knew she needed to address growing problems right away.
Over the years the homeowner noticed sloping floors, cracking walls and sticking doors, particularly in the southeast corner of the home. After consulting a structural engineer, she contacted Ohio Basement Authority to address these issues.
One of our inspectors agreed with the structural engineer's recommendations, and suggested the installation of Helical Piers and Push Piers. Eight Helical Piers were installed under new wooden posts to help support the back deck, and four push piers were installed under southeast corner of the home's foundation.
The homeowner hopes she will be able to sell the house, which is now structurally stable.
A homeowner in Columbus, OH, has lived in his house for seven years, and he recently began to notice the chimney was separating and leaning away from the house.
A leaning chimney is one of the more scary and dramatic signs of foundation settlement. Sometimes chimneys are built on foundations that are not connected to the rest of the home, making them even more at risk for settlement.
The owner wanted to find a permanent solution to this problem, so he contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our expert crews installed three Push Piers underneath the chimney's foundation to lift it back into place and permanently stabilize it.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing the chimney and his home will be structurally stable for many years to come.
After living in their house in Columbus, OH, for a few months, homeowners discovered their sewer line was clogged by tree roots and clay.
Hoping to find and immediate and permanent solution, they contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our expert crews replaced the older sewer line with sturdy plastic pipe.
The homeowners are happy to have an updated and reliable sewer line.
Mr. Tom Blaies wanted to make sure his home was structurally sound before selling it to longtime renters.
Dale L. Mickey, of DLM Engineering, performed a foundation inspection and found joint cracking and inward bowing along three walls. He recommended installing 14 4x13 Steel I Beams, and Ohio Basement Authority Inspector Jim Pierpoint concurred with the suggestion. He made sure the work was done for Mr. Blaies within one week. Now all the basement walls are supported, and the foundation has a lifetime transferable warranty.
While completing various home repairs, homeowners in Columbus, OH, wanted to address any foundation issues that may impact the home's structural integrity.
Upon removing the finished walls in the basement, they noticed the foundation walls were severely cracking and bowing inward. These are common signs of hydrostatic pressure, or pressure exerted on foundation walls by expanding exterior soils.
Hoping to find a permanent solution, the homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority. Along with repairing the wall cracks, one of our expert crews installed 14 structural steel I-Beams on the foundation walls, as well as three Carbon Fiber wall supports.
Both of these heavy-duty products will permanently stabilize the walls and prevent them from bowing inward any further. They are also covered by lifetime transferable warranties.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing the home will be structurally stable for many years to come.
Almost one year after Ohio Basement Authority installed permanent basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions for homeowners in Columbus, OH, they eagerly contacted us again to address another issue.
The owners were concerned with the home’s radon levels. Because they were in the process of selling their home, they wanted to ensure its resale value and health.
Radon is a product of uranium decay in rocks and soil. While this colorless, odorless, naturally occurring gas is present across the country, it is a silent killer. Radon is linked to more than 20,000 deaths each year, and it is just as cancer causing as smoking.
After testing the owners’ home, the results indicated the radon levels were 4.5 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). This is just slightly higher that the level at which radon mitigation systems are recommended for homes, which is 4 pCi/L.
To be on the safe side and make every effort to get the home’s radon levels as low as possible, we installed a radon mitigation system to safely pull radon from the home and ventilate it outside.
The homeowners are excited to have this reliable system in the house to create a healthier living environment for the next owners.

The inspector was a very interesting person, and he “interviewed” me about my needs and expectations. Some of the interviewing was more like a psychological profile wherein he asked good questions. This led me to think and believe he had my best interest at heart. He’s a good guy, a real keeper.
Mike is a super man. He represented your company well. He spoke with authority, leading me to believe he knew what he was talking about. He also pointed out where the problems were. I felt really comfortable with him; there was no pushing, just straight talk. When he came into the house he always took his shoes off, even though I told him it wasn’t necessary. We all got on our hands and knees, and they showed me where to touch the floor and foundation to sense the floor raising. He was a great salesman.
The men were courteous, clean and didn’t use improper language. As a retired COO of a large company, I can tell you that you have three outstanding employees. They spoke highly of your company and how you took care of your employees.
I would recommend you to anyone who asks.

I was contacted quickly after filling in the questionnaire online, and I appreciated the follow up call before the day the project was scheduled.
The inspector was not a salesman. He was very professional and polite. He was much different from any other company that came before him. (which is why I went with Ohio Basement Authority) The inspector looked for a solution to my problem, rather than selling me a prepackaged fix.

Everyone we dealt with at Ohio Basement Authority was courteous and helpful.
The installation crew arrived on time, left on time, and kept the place clean. They covered everything in plastic. I thought I was going to have to tell them to cover a couple other things, but when I went down to the basement everything was already done above and beyond my expectations.
The foreman was helpful and explained everything while they were doing the work. He ran things by me that needed to be, and even asked if they could play music. Of course they can, I had no problem, but it was very nice to ask.
