Concrete Repair With PolyRenewal®!

If you have a concrete sinking problem, we also offer concrete leveling so you can enjoy your driveway, sidewalk or patio again without worry. In the past, contractors relied upon mud jacking (also known as slab jacking, concrete lifting, concrete raising, grout pumping and slab leveling) to level concrete that had settled over time. This entailed pumping concrete slurry under the settled slab to raise it and hoping that the settlement wouldn't continue. At Ohio Basement Authority we use PolyRenewal® because it is a fast & efficient method to raise sinking concrete. This simple foam injection can stabilize your concrete slab for years to come!

An Egress Window is Installed for Safety and Natural Light in Galena, OH
Homeowners in Galena, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 10 years ago. Some of their basement is used as a bedroom, and they wanted to have an egress window installed outside the basement. Building code requires egress windows for all habitable spaces, including basements. The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. We then cut the finished wall to fit the new window, then installed the window, a window well, and well cover. Not only does the egress window serve as an emergency exit, the bright well and translucent well cover allow more natural light to enter the basement. The sturdy cover also keeps leaves, debris and rain out of the window well. The homeowners are happy to now have an updated and safe basement window system.

Permanent Foundation Wall Stabilization with the IntelliBrace System in Galena, OH
After living in their house for 35 years, homeowners in Galena, OH, were growing concerned with structural issues in their basement. They noticed one of the foundation walls was cracking and bowing inward. These are commonly the first signs homeowners will notice in the case of a failing foundation wall. There are many causes for wall failure, but the root of the problem usually is hydrostatic pressure constantly exerted on the wall by saturating and expanding soil. The homeowners wanted to address these issues before they worsened and resulted in significant damage. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads, and we completed a foundation repair project at their home. One of our expert crews first excavated the area outside the problematic foundation wall down to the footer. The wall was then pushed back to as plumb and level as possible. This process also involved applying dampproofing to the exterior foundation wall to seal it from potential moisture penetration. Five IntelliBrace beams also were installed on the wall’s interior. These sturdy zinc-plated beams permanently stabilize the foundation wall, and their unique design allows them to be tightened for potential wall improvement. The owners were pleased these repairs were completed so their home will be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come.

I have a 2 year old home in Galena and have concerns with our sump pump. Every time it rain our sump pump cycles continuously; currently cycling every 14 seconds (literally, I timed it). I've put a vertical float switch on in an attempt to cut down on the cycle time, but it has not help much. Even when it was really cold (10-20 degrees) a few weeks ago it would still go off every 15 minutes or so. I've talked with my neighbors and they don't seem to have the same issue so I'm not sure what is going on. I'm wondering if I have a drainage issue or if there is another drainage option. This literally keeps me up at night for 2 reasons; I can hear the pump kicking on/off, and I'm worried I'm going to wake up or come home to a flooded basement. Please help!

Ranch with walkout basement on Hoover Reservoir. Floors sloping away from the center/core of the house. Cracks in the concrete basement floor. Gap between the drywall and grout of the fireplace on the first floor. One corner of the basement wall appears to have cracks in the grout around the concrete blocks. Cracks in exterior front door landing (concrete). Might be my imagination, or unrelated, but looks to me like the roof ridgeline bows down in the middle. Noticed that water in gutter is running the wrong direction in at least one area. We purchased the home last fall. Very loud and frequent cracks during the winter, especially during the extreme cold. The slopes aren't extreme, but they are noticeable when walking over them and supported by using a level. I'm looking for a diagnosis with remedy suggestions/quotes.

We recently moved yo Ohio and bought a home with a finished basement. In March 2014 we had the primary sump pump replaced. In July we had a flood due to the systems in ablility to keep up with 5 inches of rain overnight. It turns out there were roots in the drain pipe. We just completed repairs and the basement flooded again. This time the float on the main pump seems to have lodged againt the side of the pit. The backup pump did not turn on and no alarm sounded. So everything needs to be rebuilt again. At this point my wife is ready to move back to California. In any event I need to get a system that will make every effort to keep this from happening again. I am interested in a system that has several levels of redundancy and the ability to notify us when there is a problem. I have talked with the plumber that installed the main sump pump but he has yet to get back to me after a week, so I am looking for alternative options.

Galena Customer Testimonial
Marc L.
Sunbury, OH

We met two very nice ladies at the Ohio Expo. They were the nicest, easy to talk with and professional than most other booths we stopped at that day. Very helpful and great experience.

Jeff who came to the house was very nice and knowledgeable. Again very easy to talk with and felt I could trust him. You have the right people in the right roles. Great experience.

We chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of your people and the price. The experience of working with Jeff was a pleasure and trusting. It is something to be appreciated and vital to the decision. You were competitive on price as well.

The crew was very friendly and exceeded expectations. They also left the area better than they found it. I couldn't have asked for better. They were hard working, focused and on top of getting the job done. There is that little bit of uncertainty and worry of who will actually be doing the work when you bring a company into your home, but as soon as they arrived that worry was gone. They were friendly, made sure to introduce themselves and made the time to talk through the details. I was impressed.

It is not often you receive a flawless experience when trying to have someone come in to do work at your house. Every step of the process (inquiry/scheduling, sale/estimate, communication, and installation) was done with excellence. Ohio Basement Authority seems to have learned from their many years of experience to just about perfect their way of doing business and it shows. Kudos and thanks to everyone. I'm looking forward to getting to use my basement now that the repairs have been made.

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the repair technology, and they were the first company to come out and give me an estimate.

The office staff was very courteous and helpful, and the inspector was informative and professional. He let me know all about the process and options I had for additional work. The crew also was very courteous and professional.

I am very pleased with all aspects of the job. The crew took their time and did excellent work. They were true professionals. They did not rush to finish the work like a lot of contractors do.

We saw Ohio Basement Authority on WBNS-10TV. We chose to work the company because of a recommendation from Re-Deck in Westerville. Even better, our next door neighbor had a repair project done by Ohio Basement Authority. She is a perfectionist, so we knew first-hand how well the repair system works.

John Becker Sr. was so knowledgeable and has a great personality. We really enjoyed meeting him and talking about solutions.

We should have done this years ago, but didn’t know where to turn!

Ohio Basement Authority previously performed work at my house, and everyone with the company was very professional both times we had work done by them.

We were also very impressed because this company was the third or fourth contractor we had come out to our house to find a mystery leak, and the Ohio Basement Authority inspector found the root cause of it in 20 minutes.

The installation crew arrived on time, and they were very courteous and nice to me and my kids. The inspector and foreman was knowledgeable and professional, and I appreciate the fix very much. It was done at a fair price, and I will call you again if I need any more work done.

John J.
Westerville, OH

John Becker Sr. did a very good job explaining the issues with my crawl space and what Ohio Basement Authority could do to remedy my situation.

John’s presentation was one reason why I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority. The other is because neighbors had Ohio Basement Authority out to examine their crawl space and determined that it wasn’t in need of remediation. That representative was very courteous and left the neighbors with a good feeling.

The installation crew was respectful and courteous. They even arrived a little early, but I was glad they did since I had time to do other things after the job was completed.

I would recommend Ohio Basement Authority to others who have a similar issue as I did.

The inspector, Corey Froelich, was great and kept us up to date on everything. He helped us through some difficult issues with our loan processing and scheduling of the work.

The office was excellent. They helped with all the paper work and made sure everything was set up with my mortgage company for the rehab loan.

The foreman and his crew also were excellent! They explained everything to us every day. The crew worked hard for four days and cleaned their work area daily. It was impressive to see them carry buckets full of cement out of the basement!

We’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority on TV and in the newspaper, as well as company vehicles as crews worked on other homes in the area. We chose to work with you because of your years of service and because you are a local company.

The office staff was very nice, and the inspector we met with went over everything completely. We had a great crew. They called to advise of their arrival, they were very polite, and they did not leave anything. All issues and concerns were taken care of in a timely manner. We would recommend your services to our neighbors and friends.

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the online information and my inspector. He was excellent. He listened to my concerns and showed me all the products and costs. There was no pressure to spend more than needed.

Jose and his installation team were very professional. They did a great job, and they even collected the OUPS markers at the end.

I just wanted to compliment Adam and his crew on the work they did replacing our culvert drain. They were courteous, professional and efficient.
 
I appreciated that they even went the extra mile by carefully replacing the driveway siding blocks when they were done, and grading the driveway back to even grade.
 
Thanks guys.

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the type of product for repair.

The representative did a great job explaining the product and process, and he answered all my questions.

The crew called ahead of their arrival, and they arrived on time. They were very polite, courteous, efficient and neat. The driveway was swept and very clean. No mess was left behind.

I chose Ohio Basement Authority because Engineer Steve Schira's recommendation, and a very thorough and helpful presentation. 

This was a very friendly and helpful group who seems to enjoy what they do, and love to share it with others.

I had a new sump pump and drainage for part of my basement installed a couple of years ago, and I was satisfied with the results. So I am a repeat customer and I chose you again to install a drainage system for the other half of my basement.

The inspector I met with was very courteous and helpful. The crew also was courteous, on time, and cleaned up the area well.

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of their well put together TV commercial, the packet sent out to me before my appointment, and the quality sales conversation/presentation. The office staff also was always super wonderful and helpful.

Brendan was thorough and answered all my questions, and my wife always says I have a lot of them. He gave us options and let us decide the best route without being pushy. I’ve given his name to two of my neighbors already.

Mike Gramly's crew was on time and worked through rain most of the time they were here, even when the guys from another company were sitting in their truck whiling the day away. I even noticed when any of the guys took a break, that they went to the truck to do so. Speaking of the truck, it was organized and kept up. If something a customer probably never sees or recognizes - the storage area of their truck - is kept in a state of respect internally in the company, I can assume they will treat the parts of the job at my house I don't see them do with respect as well.

These "unnoticeables" are the things I notice when a crew comes to my house, and what makes me call them for follow-up work. It also speaks to a company culture. The whole crew was conscientious and answered my questions, again, of which my wife says I have a lot. My kids really enjoyed watching Rob run the "digger!"

The crew also was very clean and thorough with their job clean-up. The re-grade they just completed was top-notch.

Thank you for coming into our home and treating it with respect.

Everyone at the office was very helpful and easy to get a hold of when questions came up! 

The inspector you sent was able to come out fast, and he gave me the information I needed to make a decision on work to be done.

The crew, including Milton and Daniel, were awesome! They were friendly, answered questions and were efficient. They got right to work and completed it ahead of schedule! The clean-up was great. They left things exactly how they were to start.

I saw one of your trucks in the neighborhood, and I contacted you specifically in response to a direct mailing. I then chose to work with your company because of the cost and getting exactly the solution I needed.

Of all the representatives that came to the house, I found Jacob Thomas to be the most helpful. He listened to what I wanted and did not try to sell me what I did not need.

The crew wanted to come early due to a scheduling snafu, but we were able to reschedule to what we were expecting. That allowed us to do some last-minute cleanup. Then they called to let us know they were coming, and they were on time.

Jose and his crew were very polite and nice. I was surprised how quickly and cleanly the work was done. Except for the work done, you wouldn’t even know they had been here.

The inspector I met with was very nice, explained what I should expect for the repair, and was on time. You price matched another company that wanted to do a more invasive procedure that I didn’t want. Then I looked you up on the BBB website and liked your reviews.

The installation crew was on time, and even called 20 minutes ahead of time to tell me they were on their way. I liked that. They were extremely courteous, very polite, put footies on to protect my carpet, and explained everything to me.

Overall, it was a great job. There was an unexpected change in the procedure to fix the crack, but you worked with us and made the necessary changes right on the spot with no need to reschedule. That was amazing. I will refer your company to friends and family.

We just happened to see you at the most recent home and garden show at the Fairgrounds, and it struck us we had this pesky leak in the basement that needed addressed.

The individual at the booth who was on site to do the work was very polite at the booth, and he and the crew were very polite while on site. The cleanup was very satisfactory. My wife was VERY impressed and pleased they cleaned up their work area.

Right now, all our friends have dry basements! But we will definitely recommend you to others as opportunity permits. Doug, this team did you and your company proud.

We knew Ohio Basement Authority was the right choice after comparing your reviews on BBB and Angie's List to reviews of similar companies.

The crew answered all our questions and guided my wife or me through the work, products and how everything was being done. The crew foreman kept us informed through the entire process. He even told us what we needed to do after the work was completed.

Based on the level of work and feedback provided by your company, I will emphasize to anyone that needs work done to contact Ohio Basement Authority.

I heard about Ohio Basement Authority through the company's TV ad, and I chose to work with them because of the price and product offered.

The inspector I met with was friendly, kind, informative and patient.

The crew was awesome. They were on time, and actually arrived a little early. They cleaned up every step of the way, and were very insistent that they go the extra mile to make sure they didn't leave any evidence that they had been here.

Cracks in basement walls. Think it might be tree root issue
Aster Way
in Galena
I have a 2 year old home in Galena and have concerns with our sump pump. Every time it rain our sump pump cycles continuously; currently cycling every 14 seconds (literally, I timed it). I've put a vertical float switch on in an attempt to cut down on the cycle time, but it has not help much. Even when it was really cold (10-20 degrees) a few weeks ago it would still go off every 15 minutes or so. I've talked with my neighbors and they don't seem to have the same issue so I'm not sure what is going on. I'm wondering if I have a drainage issue or if there is another drainage option. This literally keeps me up at night for 2 reasons; I can hear the pump kicking on/off, and I'm worried I'm going to wake up or come home to a flooded basement. Please help!
