BasementGutter, SafeDri and Other Solutions will Keep a Leaking Basement Dry in Nevada, OH
Homeowners in Nevada, OH, have lived in their house for many years. Recently, however, they noticed problems in their basement they knew they needed to fix sooner rather than later....
Job Stories From Nevada, OH
Encapsulating a Crawl Space for a Healthier Home in Nevada, OH
As a 200-year-old house in Nevada, OH, continued to be handed down through a family, the more recent familial homeowners wanted to do everything they could to protect the home’s health, safety and historical integrity. While they rarely go into the crawl space, the owners wondered if this area under the house was impacting the rest of the living environment. They were motivated to address any concerns when they attended a popular home and garden show event. They spoke to some of Ohio Basement Authority’s staff and booked an appointment to meet with one of our inspectors. The inspector visited the home to complete a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. He found a very unhealthy area full of failing insulation and plastic floor liner. He then recommended some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions. One of our crews first began transforming the crawl space by carefully removing all the insulation and other nuisances. The crawl space was then encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner, which is similar to swimming pool liner, completely isolates the crawl space from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. Spray foam was applied to the band joists to further insulate the area. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have enhanced the health of the crawl space, as well as the rest of their home.
Fixing and Protecting a Cracking, Settling Wall in Nevada, OH
As they moved into their house, new homeowners in Nevada, OH, noticed some glaring problems with one of their foundation walls. The wall was cracking and slightly tilting inward, and there were several areas of gaps between the concrete blocks. These are signs of foundation failure and settlement that the homeowners wanted to be sure to address right away. They found information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the wall and then recommended some of our reliable foundation repair solutions. One of our crews then installed several Push Piers underneath the settling foundation wall by driving them deep into the soil. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel piers permanently stabilize the foundation wall and offer the best opportunity to lift it back to level. Once it was obvious the wall had been leveled, Carbon Fiber supports also were placed on the wall to reinforce it in its current position. These durable supports, which firmly adhere to the wall, also prevent any further cracking or inward bowing. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safe and stable living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Nevada, OH
After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Nevada, OH, noticed some issues in their basement. Water appeared to be leaking inside the basement, resulting in puddles on the floor and visible damage. The sump pump also appeared to be failing to keep up with this seeping water. Hoping to find the best solution before any serious damage resulted, the homeowners started to research how to best address these problems. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors. The inspector evaluated the condition of the basement, and he then presented the owners with some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions. One of our crews then installed the BasementGutter interior drainage system and a SafeDri Triple sump pump. Any water that seeps inside the basement will be intercepted by the sub-floor BasementGutter system and directed to the SafeDri. Along with three powerful pumps inside its liner, the SafeDri also is equipped with an external backup battery to ensure its operation even during power outages. The SafeDri then pumps the seeping water out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation. The exterior sump pump discharge line was tied into a new downspout conductor line, and a YardWell outlet was used to conceal the end of this line in the yard. The homeowners are pleased these trustworthy solutions were installed to help them create a safe, dry and healthy living environment.

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the company’s ratings and the cost of repairs.

The inspector I met with was very thorough in his presentation, and he described exactly the procedure used and the expected results.

The crew answered all my questions and proceeded with the installation without delay. The three-man team had the installation down to a science. Each took a portion of the job and proceeded seamlessly in their work to work very efficiently.

I've heard about Ohio Basement Authority through TV commercials and yard signs, and I chose to work with the company because of very good online reviews and the professionalism of the staff.

My inspector was very friendly and made sure I understood everything he explained regarding my problem and the solution. The crew did a very nice job. They were both very courteous and friendly. I was very appreciative of the extra time they took to protect my home during the installation. There was absolutely no mess left behind at all. Top-notch technicians!

We saw Ohio Basement Authority's television ad. We were so excited that the day we called to schedule an appointment there had been another customer that had to reschedule. We were able to take that appointment and our basement was completed that week!
OBA did not try to sell us on having more work done than was necessary, but told us what was recommended at a minimum as well as other options we could add if we wanted. Our inspector was extremely respectful, thorough and informative.
Ben and Eric with the crew were great! They were very respectful and friendly. Everything was cleaned up and looked just like it did before they started.

I first heard of Ohio Basement Authority from the Spring Home and Garden Show 2014. Your office staff was very professional, and the representative was very thorough in evaluating the needs of my home. His experience and knowledge game me confidence to trust his judgement and staff in completing the job. The books and photos were very helpful for me. My son-in-law watches "This Old House," Bob Vila, and TV shows that feature the best research info. Your inspector verified and recommended these procedures, so my decision was easy...Ohio Basement Authority. The crews worked constantly and together as a team. They obviously have an excellent work ethic and want to provide the best job possible. They were absolutely courteous and helpful in every way. In fact, I had a huge branch fall overnight, and they offered to cut and dispose of it. The house was cleaned up daily with very minimal dust and no extra work on my part. The foreman kept me posted on the work completed daily by the crew. He explained work clearly, asked if there were any questions I might have, and responded thoroughly. I will be recommending OBA to anyone interested.

I heard about Ohio Basement Authority on a TV commercial, and I chose to work with the company because of the customer service and the pricing.

The office staff was very accommodating, and Matt, the inspector I met with, was great. He was very informative, yet no pressure to buy anything. The installation crew arrived on time and cleaned everything up well. The crew members were very good at their jobs. They answered every question I had, and they were persistent in their efforts to get the job done right despite a couple of hiccups.

Everyone I have dealt with has been very pleasant and extremely helpful.

The company representative I first met with arrived on time. He was also very friendly and answered every question I had, and he made sure to explain it in a way that was easy to understand. Honestly, I didn’t even look elsewhere. The presentation was great, so I went ahead with you.

The installation crew also arrived on time. They even had a slight issue with their truck, but were still there within the time I was given.

The crew was amazing. They really take pride in their work. The foreman would periodically show me what had been done to make sure I was happy with the job, and to explain to me what was being done next. He went above and beyond to make sure the job was done right, and had a smile on his face the entire time.

The clean-up was great also. I even told the foreman he didn’t have to wipe everything down, but he said, “I just can’t leave it that way.” I really appreciated that.

The representative was awesome! We were so overwhelmed, but not once did he put pressure on us and was ALWAYS there to answer our many questions. The experience was great from the very first phone call. Questions were always answered and no sale pressure.

The crew was awesome. Our foreman was the best! We saw him treat his crew with respect. The entire crew was respectful to one another. I never expected it to be so clean after a project of this size. We are VERY pleased!

We would highly recommend your company to anyone with basement needs. We were amazed at what they did for us and how smoothly it went. We were very comfortable with the entire process.

I heard about Ohio Basement Authority just recently on TV. This company doesn't have annoying commercials like other competitors.

The office staff was courteous and helpful, and Victor was wonderful. I give his presentation an A++++!

I can't begin to tell you how great the crew was. They were great!!!

The representative you sent out was very thorough and had an obvious interest and concern in listening to and meeting our specific needs.

We chose Ohio Basement Authority because you were prompt to return calls and followed up with us. You also generally seemed more interested in the job than other companies.

The crew led by Jose was fantastic! They went above and beyond our expectations. When the water-damaged basement steps started to come apart after pulling them away from the wall, Jose took it upon himself to attach replacement stringers and replace the bottom two steps that were unsafe to use. That's incredible!

The clean-up was also exceptional! They left it cleaner than when they arrived!

The office staff has been fantastic with complete follow up and excellent communication. All of the reps that I have dealt with were excellent, professional, courteous and personable. The crew was professional and polite. I requested they call me on my cell phone prior to coming so that I could meet them at the house, and they did. I have worked with other contractors and requested the same thing, and it never happened. So I was very pleased with the follow-up.
