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 Somerset, OH
Crawl Space Encapsulation in Somerset, OH
After living in her house for a couple years, a homeowner in Somerset, OH, began to seriously think about the health of her home. She wondered if the condition of the crawl space under the house was affecting the rest of the dwelling. After having a positive experience with Ohio Basement Authority completing previous repair projects in her former residence, the homeowner knew she could again count on us for the perfect solution to her crawl space repair needs. She met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the crawl space, and she was eager for one of our crews to transform the crawl space. The dirt-floor crawl wasn’t in the best condition, so we completely isolated the crawl space and home from the earth by encapsulating the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. CrawlSeal also transforms the crawl space into a more functional area that can be used for storage. The homeowner was again pleased with our work, and is happy to have a healthy crawl space and home.
Foundation Wall Stabilization with Wall Anchors in Somerset, OH
They have lived in their house since it was built 18 years ago. During that time, one of the foundation walls has continued to show signs of failure that were only worsening. This wall was cracking and slightly tilting inward. The homeowners worried about the safety of the home, as well as their ability to sell it. They were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads. After meeting with one of our inspectors, they were eager for one of our crews to install the perfect solution. We installed several Wall Anchors on the failing foundation wall. Heavy-duty, galvanized earth anchors are securely embedded in stable soil away from the foundation wall. These earth anchors are connected to sturdy steel wall plates with long galvanized steel rods. This system will permanently stabilize the wall, as well as offer the best opportunity to straighten it over time without the cost and disruption of a foundation replacement project. The unique system also offers the ability to tighten the anchors when exterior soil shrinks during dry periods. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair method has helped them create a safer living environment for the next owners.
Permanently Waterproofing a Leaking Basement in Somerset, OH
Since they moved into their house several years ago, homeowners in Somerset, OH, have been monitoring a problem in their basement. Water seemed to seep inside through one of the foundation walls. This issue only continued to get worse, resulting in streams of water across the basement floor during periods of heavy rain. The homeowners wanted to address this issue once and for all. While investigating possible remedies, they saw a TV ad for Ohio Basement Authority and were motivated to contact us. After meeting with one of our highly trained inspectors, the homeowners were eager for one of our expert crews to install some of our reliable waterproofing solutions that will always keep their basement dry. These included the BasementGutter interior drainage system and a SafeDri Super sump pump. Installed in the basement’s sub-floor, BasementGutter will catch any seeping water and direct it to the SafeDri Super Sump. From there, the water is pumped out of the home through a discharge line. A FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this line also was tied to a new downspout conductor line that also was installed on the property. The homeowners now have pace of mind knowing these reliable products have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment.

The owners were then excited to have one of our expert crews install one type of our many reliable foundation repair products.

I found Ohio Basement Authority on Angie’s List, and I chose to work with the company because of the reviews on that site and the BBB.

The inspector I met with did a great job and was very informative. The crew also did an awesome job! They left my basement cleaner than it was when they started!

There’s no doubt that our inspector was part of our decision to work with Ohio Basement Authority. He was very professional and knew his product from A to Z. The BBB was also part of our choice, as well as the overall plan as to what was needed and how it would be done.

The crew was great. Each member introduced themselves and shook hands as soon as they arrived. They were friendly, and each knew their job very well. They even were really good with our canine friends who are always in the way.

I’m a retired Whitehall police chief, having served 37 years primarily in supervision and management, and 16 years as chief.

I learned fairly quickly just how important public relations is. I also learned that people are far more likely to complain about an employee than take the time or put forward the effort to compliment them.

I’ve made it a habit to take the time to compliment exemplary conduct, as well as inferior. I’ve always adhered to the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

I can assure you that the inspector I met with embodies the essential characteristics of a model employee/representative. He was punctual and polite, respectful and courteous. He was and is very knowledgeable and informative. He was not pushy. I can’t think of one negative.

I have a high opinion of your company because of my contact with your inspector. I have no doubt he will excel in any assignment he is given. He has much potential.

My compliments for recruiting someone with the potential and demonstrated ability.

I’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, and I chose to work with the company because they had the best price and the best sales presentation.

I waited to respond to any questionnaires to see if heavy rains would cause any basement water to appear. No water!

I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of a recommendation by a friend who had foundation work done by your company.

You are very fortunate to have such knowledgeable and courteous representatives. The rep I met with explained the process, equipment, and uniqueness of the basement water control system with admirable clarity and patience for any questions I had.

The installation crew was extraordinarily courteous and thoughtful. They worked so smoothly together, and it was impressive to observe. Jose, the foreman, went over the project very carefully with me so as to make sure we were both on the same page and I knew exactly what the sequence of work would be. Ohio Basement Authority can take great pride in the performance of this installation crew. Wow! They are good, good, good.

I'm impressed by the staff of Ohio Basement Authority, the quality of their work, and my interaction with the crew. If only other companies could match your product and staff.

I called two local companies and they did not return my call. Then I called Ohio Basement Authority. Not only did Jacob come over to the house with my first concern, he and Jeff came over the next day when I discovered my crumbling wall.

I was told to have the hot water heater moved prior to the installation. The crew leader hooked it back up for me as a courtesy. He felt that I should not be without hot water. The crew also placed plastic on my floor to avoid tracking dust. One crew member also swept the floor after installation. Not one speck of dirt was on the floor.

I have spoken highly of my experience to my co-workers and family.

I really liked the design of the flangeless waterproofing system, as well as the price. Your estimate was more than $1,000 under the next closest estimate I received.

The crew was nice and courteous. They did not mind me looking around and seeing how progress was going. They answered any questions that I had and took the time to explain things. The clean-up that was done was just fine. They did not leave any large messes for me to clean up.

Everyone with the office was so friendly and courteous. The inspector was great and answered all of my questions. His presentation was thorough and interesting. I picked your company because of his professionalism. The installation crew was very courteous, and the area where they worked was cleaner after they left than when they started. The difference, specifically in the rooms above the crawl space, is night and day improved and warmer. And it smells so much better.

I heard about Ohio Basement Authority through the company's TV ads.

The office staff was incredibly helpful, and refreshingly courteous, professional and knowledgeable.

I chose to work with this company because of the inspector's knowledge of the products and what needed to be done to correct the situation. He didn't use any high-pressure sales or try to sell more than necessary. He also offered competitive pricing.

The installation crew arrived on time, and they were very courteous.

If I come across more people who may need your services, I would not hesitate to recommend you!

This was the only crew I have ever had at my house that didn’t stop for “smoke breaks” every 45 minutes. No foul language. Great young men. They went above and beyond, and even cleaned up some of my own mess.

Prior to contracting with you to do work, I had seen your truck in the neighborhood. I then met with Jeff Floit, who was knowledgeable, courteous, helpful in choosing a solution, and excellent on follow-up.

I chose your company because of the knowledge of Jeff Floit, the lower cost, and a better, more comprehensive solution.

I’ve had two contracts for work with you over the past two months, and both crews were excellent.

I’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority’s commercials and heard about the company through word of mouth, and I chose to work with you because of your courtesy and cost.

The inspector I met with was professional and knowledgeable. He answered my questions in a respectful manner.

All members of the crew were professional. They fully explained what they were doing and how the drainage system they installed would work. Excellent job! There’s no evidence that they had even been here, except for the wet cement.

From start to finish, your representative and crew made this a positive experience! Even better, this has been an extremely wet few days and I can see/hear the sump pump and drainage system doing their job to keep my basement dry. THANK YOU!!!

I hadn't heard of Ohio Basement Authority until I searched Google for repair options.

The inspector I met with did a great job selling your product, answering questions, and assuring me that the job would be done right the first time. He was the key for us to decide to go with your company. We also liked the price, and you quoted nearly half the price of your competitors.

The office staff was also courteous and helpful. When I called about credit, the gentleman was very helpful and made sure I was first priority. He walked me through the online process and was able to complete my payment.

The installation crew was great! They arrived on time, were very personable, and had a great attitude. They also did a great job cleaning up, and the area looked better than when they started!

My wife just happened to take notice of a commercial on TV you had one day. You were the first company we came upon. We checked the Internet with your reputation and checked with the BBB, and we were pleased you had flying colors.

We had a very friendly crew. Drew, the foreman, with Ben and Ryan were awesome. I was on vacation when they were there at the house and chatted with them some while they were working. I was concerned some, as they were working in direct sun for most of the day (in the high 80s low 90s). But they kept working no matter what. My foundation was as thick as 27 inches in some places. They had to dig deep in some places by hand.

They also did a good job cleaning up. They had to dig through a layer of stones that were at one time used for landscaping, and the dirt had some stones in it as well. I was surprised to see where thy raked all the stones back into the backfill area that I will be able to mow without throwing rocks.

My wife and I felt comfortable enough with them to offer them the use of our basement restroom since they had to keep hydrated, and figured they would need to use a restroom. We also said they could have their lunch in the finished part of the basement were it had air conditioning, but Drew said they normally don't eat a lunch. Holy cow!

Beverly W. struggled with basement water problems since she first moved into her home in 2000. Her basement would leak badly every time it rained, to a point where she wouldn't sleep well at night or go away on vacation for fear or waking up or coming home to a basement mess. When she was ready to fix the problem, she called a few different companies for repair estimates. She chose Ohio Basement Authority to handle the job, and she has been very pleased with her decision. The work was completed in only two days. She is happy with the results and the service, and even happier with the fact that the company will be there to make sure her system works efficiently for many years. "I like the fact that they will be contacting me to set up the yearly inspection," she said. "And I am sure if I have any questions, I can contact them at any time and they will help me over the phone."
