After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Vincent, OH, recently noticed potential structural issues in their basement. One foundation wall was starting to crack, and the owners were worried about the wall tilting inward. If this happened, the owners feared complete wall failure would lead to a cave-in that would affect the structural integrity of the rest of the house.
The owners tried to temporarily stabilize the wall with wooden beams, but they knew this was not the proper fix. They started to research how to best address these problems, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the wall. He then recommended a couple foundation repair projects that would alleviate their concerns and address their repair needs.
One of our crews first executed what is known as a dig and push procedure. They carefully excavated the ground outside the problematic foundation wall, digging down to the footer, and then pushed the wall back to as plumb as possible. Several Carbon Fiber supports were then placed on the wall’s interior to permanently reinforce it. Not only do these sturdy supports stabilize the wall where they are installed, they also help protect the wall from any further cracking or inward bowing.
The owners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable repairs have helped them create a safer living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

We helped the homeowners create a safe and stable home by installing several Helical Piers underneath the settling foundation walls. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel piers not only permanently stabilize the walls, they also help raise them back to the proper level. Many structural steel I-Beams also were placed on the other walls to prevent any further cracking or movement.

After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Marietta, OH, recently started to notice a structural issue getting worse. A main load bearing beam in the attached garage was starting to sag. This also caused some unlevel floors above the garage. These issues could eventually worsen and compromise the structural integrity of the home and garage.
The homeowners wanted to find the best way to address these problems, so they turned to the Internet for research. They came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website, and they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. After meeting with one of our inspectors, one of our crews then installed the perfect solution.
Two IntelliJacks were installed in the garage to stabilize the main load beam and above floors. IntelliJacks may look similar to common jack posts, these heavy-duty supports are made of galvanized steel. This enhances their durability and also makes them resistant to rust, corrosion and rot. The IntelliJacks permanently reinforce the above floors and can help raise them back to level. IntelliJacks also are designed to prevent any further settling, but they can easily be adjusted if any settling occurs.
The homeowners were pleased to have this reliable foundation repair project completed so their home will be safer and stable for many years to come.
During the last couple years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Marietta, OH, have noticed a problem outside their house getting worse. Water runoff from their neighbor’s house was causing the ground in their back yard to become saturated, and faulty drainage on one side of the house caused the ground to soften around the driveway. Water did not seem to be seeping inside the home, but that could eventually happen if the other problems persisted.
The homeowners began to research methods to update their exterior drainage, and they came across information for Ohio Basement Authority on resources like Home Advisor. They met with one of our inspectors who assessed the current drainage issues, and he then recommended having one of our crews install new exterior drainage lines.
New reliable downspout conductor lines and French drain lines were then installed on the property. Thick pipe was used for these systems that were connected to the gutter downspouts and buried underground. The French drain section comprised of perforated pipe seated in non-compactable gravel. This allows water to slowly leach in and drain to the appropriate area away from the home. The downspout lines also were directed to drain water at the edge of the property.
The homeowners are happy to now have an up dated exterior drainage system.
