Basement Waterproofing in Mount Sterling, OH
A home in Mount Sterling, OH, had been leaking water from the basement walls since the homeowner moved in in 1999. The leakage was especially bad during heavy rains. There also were cracks in the walls and water damage. The homeowner called us for help. One of our inspectors visited the home to assess the problem and explain the options to the homeowner. She was on a budget, so she decided to go with half the repairs and finish the rest next year. She was, however, made aware that this may cause potential worsening of the problem over the time the repairs were not made. She had us install FreezeGuard, BasementGutter, SafeDri Super Sump with SafeDri Battery Backup, and Yardwell. The production crew came in and first installed SafeDri Super Sump with the SafeDri battery backup. This is a cast iron sump pump system which can pump up to 2,200 gallons of water per hour. SafeDri keeps the sump working even if the power goes out. Then, they attached new drainage pipes to carry water from the sump pump up and out of the home. They also included a FreezeGuard attachment to the discharge line to give water an escape route even if the pipe freezes in the winter. A YardWell Outlet was added at the end of the line to camouflage it and prevent tripping or lawn mowing hazards. Next, they installed the BasementGutter system. This is a series of trapezoidal drains with holes on the side and a flange to catch water from the ground and walls. They lay at a gradual slope which allows the water to run into the sump pump system. BasementGutter is designed not to clog with dirt from under the floor as traditional pipe and gravel systems do. The homeowner is happy that her basement is permanently waterproofed, and she hopes to continue with her foundation repairs next year. Basement Waterproofing in Mount Sterling, OH - Photo 1

Mitigating Elevated Radon Levels in West Jefferson, OH
They have lived in their house since it was built four years ago, so maintaining a safe and healthy living environment is important to homeowners in West Jefferson, OH. They recently began wondering if radon was having an effect on the health of their home. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is produced by the decay of uranium in rocks and soil. It is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, making it virtually impossible to detect without the proper testing. Radon is also a very hazardous gas. It has been linked to more than 20,000 yearly deaths, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer. All of these factors greatly concerned the homeowners, so they began to research potential remedies and companies. They eagerly contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. They met with one of our highly trained inspectors who helped test their home for radon. The homeowners were shocked by the results, which indicated the average level of radon in their home was 9.3 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). This is more than double the level at which the Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating for radon, which is 4 pCi/L. The homeowners were equally excited for one of our expert repair crews to install a radon mitigation system. This involved creating a suction point by drilling a hole in the basement’s concrete floor. PVC pipe was connected to this hole and directed through the attic. A fan was mounted to the pipe within the attic to ventilate the radon gas up through more pipe that extended through the roof. The owners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable repair solution has helped them create a safer and healthier forever home.
Radon Gas Mitigation in Plain City, OH
Homeowners in Plain City, OH became concerned about radon gas when other family members had mitigation systems installed. They built the house in 1992 and had no plans to move, so they were worried about their health now and in the future. After learning that we provide a free inspection and estimate for homeowners, they called us to set up an appointment. Two weeks after meeting with one of our certified inspectors, a production crew arrived at the scheduled time to install a radon mitigation system. This is a pipe which pulls radon out of the home and from under the concrete floor and expels it outside of the home. It also included an airtight, sealed lid over the sump pump which serves as the pipe suction point, and prevents radon gas from escaping from the sump pit into the basement or crawl space. Also, on this system a moisture guard was attached to the exhaust fan. This has a wide lip which collects moisture caused by condensation, and drains the water before it causes rust build-up on the fan. The system was installed in less than one day, and the homeowners are no longer concerned about their health and safety inside their own home.
Radon Mitigation in West Jefferson, OH
Living in a safe and healthy home is very important to a new homeowner in West Jefferson, OH. She just purchased and is moving into the 48-year-old house, but she wants to have various repair projects completed to ensure its safety, especially for her young child. She had the house tested for radon, and the results indicated the home’s radon level was 8.4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). This is double the level at which radon mitigation systems are recommended for homes, which is 4 pCi/L. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is present throughout the country. It is produced by the decay of uranium in rocks and soil, and it is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It also is a major health hazard. Exposure to radon gas has been linked to more than 20,000 deaths per year, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer. This alarmed the homeowner, so she contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. She was eager for us to install an effective radon mitigation system to safely pull radon from out of the home. This involved creating suction points by drilling holes into the basement’s concrete slab floor. Other suction points were created in the crawl space. PVC pipes were connected to these holes and directed to the home’s exterior. The pipes also were connected to a fan to help ventilate the radon gas out of the home. We also placed a domed and sealed lid on the sump pump system and encapsulated the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner to prevent radon from entering the home through these locations. The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable repairs have helped her create a safer and healthier living environment that she and her family will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.
