|Why Choose Us?
Homeowners in Zanesville, OH, have lived in their house for almost 20 years. But they have started to use their basement as livable space, so they wanted to make sure it would be safe and up to code.
According to the International Residential Code, all habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.
After finding information about Ohio Basement Authority on Angie’s List, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who agreed with the necessity of an egress window.
After excavating the area outside the new window location, one of our crews then carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the newer, bigger window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame resists rust, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient. A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window.
The owners are pleased to now have an updated window system.
After living in their house for many years, homeowners in Zanesville, OH, began to notice areas of concern with one of their foundation walls. This wall was cracking in stair-step patterns, and the floor above it had cracks in doorway corners.
These are common signs of foundation settlement, but they were worrying the homeowners. Hoping to prevent complete foundation wall failure and damage, the homeowners wanted to make every effort to ensure their home safety and stability.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV ads, and we installed one type of our many reliable foundation repair products. Several Push Piers were installed underneath the settling areas of the foundation. These heavy-duty, galvanized piers permanently stabilize the foundation and offer the best opportunity to lift it back to level.

They just purchased a house to renovate and sell to interested home buyers, but new homeowners in Zanesville, OH, were having trouble passing the necessary inspections. That was because of structural issues in the basement. One of the foundation walls was cracking and bowing inward.
These are common signs of foundation wall failure – largely due to continuous hydrostatic pressure exerted on the walls by exterior soil – but they compromise the home’s structural integrity and appearance.
The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we then installed one of our many reliable foundation repair products. Six Carbon Fiber supports were placed on the problematic foundation wall to permanently stabilize it. These heavy-duty supports also prevent future cracking and inward bowing, and can easily be concealed by paint or drywall.

Since moving into their house almost 20 years ago, homeowners in Nashport, OH, have been keeping an eye on potential structural issues. Two of the walls in the home’s attached garage were cracking. One of these walls was in worse shape, as mortar was missing and daylight could be seen through the stair-step cracking patterns. The latter issues indicate foundation settlement.
Not only were the homeowners concerned with the stability of the garage, they were worried these problems could negatively impact their ability to sell the house in the near future. They began to research how to best address these issues, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online. After meeting with one of our inspectors, the homeowners were eager for one of our crews to install our reliable foundation repair solutions.
These included several Carbon Fiber supports on the less severe wall. These heavy-duty supports permanently stabilize the foundation wall where they were installed, and they prevent any further cracking or inward bowing.
Several Helical Piers also were installed underneath the other wall. These durable galvanized steel piers were mechanically driven down to competent soil and attached to heavy-duty foundation brackets on the garage’s footing. These piers permanently stabilize the foundation, help prevent further settlement, and offer the best opportunity to lift the settling section back to level.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a structurally sound home.
As a new homeowner moved into his house, he wanted to make sure it would be a safe and healthy environment for his family. That’s why he wanted to address any radon present in the house right away.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by the decay of uranium in rocks and soil. It is colorless, odorless and tasteless, as well as extremely hazardous. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer, and it has been linked to more than 20,000 annual deaths.
These factors greatly concerned the homeowner, and he wanted to have the house tested for radon. The results from the test indicated the home’s radon level was 4.7 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). This is just slightly above the level the Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating radon, which is 4 pCi/L.
The owner started to research how to proceed, and he came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website. He was then motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help him. He met with one of our inspectors who reviewed the radon test results with him, as well as our company’s mitigation procedures.
One of our crews then installed a radon mitigation system in the home to lower the radon levels as much as possible. The owner is pleased this reliable installation project was completed so his longtime home will be a safer and healthier living environment for his family.
New homeowners in Zanesville, OH, wanted to take proper steps in ensuring the health and safety of their living environment. This included addressing potential radon in the home.
Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by uranium decay in rocks and soil, is present in homes across the country. It is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, but extremely hazardous. Radon gas has been linked to more than 20,000 deaths every year, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
These factors greatly concerned the homeowners, so they had their new house tested for radon. The results indicated the home’s radon level was 6.7 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). This is slightly higher than the level at which the Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating radon, which is 4 pCi/L.
The owners then found information about Ohio Basement Authority and our radon mitigation services through Angie’s List. They contacted us to learn more about how we could help them, and the met with one of our inspectors. The inspector reviewed the test results with them, as well as our mitigation procedure.
The owners were then eager for one of our crews to install a radon mitigation system in their home. Because the basement was quite large, two suction points to draw radon from the house were needed. These suction points were created by drilling holes into the basement’s concrete floor. PVC ventilation pipes were attached to these holes, and the pipes were directed to the home’s exterior. There, they connected to a fan unit mounted to the side of the house. This fan, as well as additional pipe extending past the home’s roof, is integral for safe and effective radon expulsion.
The homeowners were pleased this repair was completed to help them create a safer home that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
