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!

Job Stories From Howard, OH
Carbon Fiber and Downspout Line Installation in Howard, OH
A homeowner in Howard, OH, called us when she noticed stair-step cracks in her basement walls. She also wanted to have new downspout lines installed under her sidewalk. Inspector Corey Froelich visited the home to look at the problems. He explained our various support systems and he and the owner decided on Carbon Fiber straps as the solution. The production crew came in a adhered the Carbon Fiber to the walls. This is a very durable material which is almost impossible to stretch. It can be used to keep walls from bowing further inward. Then, they excavated an area under the sidewalk for the new downspout lines. They placed the pipes to drain into the street to prevent water leakage onto the lawn near the foundation. This type of leakage could cause water to leak into the basement through the foundation walls. The homeowner is no longer worried about the cracks in her walls, and has durable downspout lines for years to come.
Updating a Home's Exterior Drainage System in Howard, OH

After living in her house for a few years, a homeowner in Howard, OH, recently began to notice water seeping into the basement. This seemed to happen during heavy rains in one corner in particular. A downspout conductor line also happened to be outside this corner and could very well have been contributing to the leakage.

After a loved one’s do-it-yourself attempts, the homeowner wanted to seek professional advice. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and she then met with one of our inspectors. The inspector recommended updating the exterior drainage system to help prevent water from the gutter downspouts from leaking inside the house.

One of our crews then installed new downspout conductor lines on the property. These lines were buried underground and directed to drain water away from the home and out to a culvert at the edge of the property.

The homeowner is happy to have an updated drainage system that will help keep water out of and away from her home.

Wall Anchors Stabilize, Straighten a Cracking Retaining Wall in Howard, OH
A homeowner in Howard, OH, has lived in his house for seven years. Recently, however, he started to notice a worsening problem outside the house. A retaining wall at the back of the attached garage was starting to crack and tilt. Concerned with the structural integrity of his property, the owner wanted to have the issue fixed before serious damage resulted. He was motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after finding information online. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough assessment of the retaining wall. Our inspector then recommended the perfect repair solution. One of our crews installed several Wall Anchors on the retaining wall. These heavy-duty anchors permanently stabilize the wall and offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall because of their unique design. The homeowner is pleased these trustworthy repairs were completed to help ensure the safety and structural stability of his property.
Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Howard, OH
After living in a house for a few months, a tenant in Howard, OH, started to notice issues with water seepage in the basement. He promptly notified the owner, and the owner began to research how to address this problem to give his tenant and his family a safe and healthy home. The owner came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and he was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. He met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the basement and then recommended our reliable basement waterproofing solutions. We installed the BasementGutter interior drainage system in the sub-floor to intercept seeping water from the walls and floor. This water is then directed to the existing sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement. While the owner opted to keep the existing sump pit, we replaced the pump and upgraded it to a 1/3 hp Zoeller® pump. The owner and tenant are pleased these solutions were installed to help create a safe and dry living environment.
BasementGutter and SafeDri Protect a Leaking Basement in Howard, OH
As they moved into their house, new homeowners in Howard, OH, were discovering different quirks as well as issues with the home. Water recently leaked into the basement after a period of heavy rain, which greatly concerned the owners. They wanted to make sure the basement would stay dry, so they started to look into repair options. After hearing good things about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the basement, and he recommended the perfect repair solutions. One of our crews then waterproofed the basement with BasementGutter and SafeDri. BasementGutter was placed in the sub-floor to catch seeping water, and this water is then directed to drain to the SafeDri sump pump system. A FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. This line was tied into a new downspout conductor line that was installed on the property, and the end of this buried line was concealed by a YardWell outlet. The owners are happy to now have a safe and dry home that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
Radon Mitigation in Howard, OH
After living in their house for almost two years, homeowners in Howard, OH, began to seriously consider the health and safety of their living environment. They wondered if the potential presence of radon was affecting their home. Radon is a naturally occurring gas produced by uranium decay in rocks and soil, and it is found in homes across the globe. It cannot be seen, smelled or tasted, but this radioactive gas presents very real dangers. It is a leading cause of lung cancer, and more than 20,000 people die every year from prolonged radon exposure. These factors greatly concerned the homeowners, so they decided to have their home tested for radon. They were surprised to find out the results of the test, which indicated their home’s radon level was 8.3 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). This is more than two times higher than the level at which the Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating radon, which is 4 pCi/L. The owners were unsure what their next step should be, so they began to research how to proceed. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company and our radon services online. They met with one of our inspectors who reviewed the test results with them, as well as our mitigation procedure. One of our crews then installed a radon mitigation system in their home. This involved drilling a hole in the basement floor to create a suction point to draw radon from the house. Ventilation pipes were attached to this hole and then directed to the home’s exterior. There, the pipes connected to a ventilation fan unit that was mounted to the side of the house. Additional pipes were then extended past the home’s roof for safe and effective radon expulsion. The homeowners are pleased this reliable solution was installed to help them create a safer and healthier living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

I heard about Ohio Basement Authority through Alpha Labs, and I chose to work with the company because of its presence on the BBB, the reputation, and the warranties.

The office staff was good in setting up an appointment time. John Dean did a fine job of describing the system and listening to a homeowner's thoughts. He closed the sale well, also.

The crew explained their installation process and worked quickly to get the job done. It was a snowy day, and they put down canvas over the floors that they would be using. The cleanup was excellent.

Thanks for getting it done quickly and effectively.

I’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority’s TV commercials, and I chose to work with the company because of its BBB rating and the reasonable repair cost. The inspector did an excellent job. He explained everything clearly and went out of his way to solve an issue I have with my basement wall. Marty and the crew members were very pleasant to work with and appeared to work well together as a team. They answered any questions I had and clearly explained specific issues with a tile drain that was in the backyard. I will definitely recommend your company.
