What causes basement flooding and how to prevent it
If your basement flooded once, it can happen again. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to prevent a flooded basement. That’s where we come in. As a basement waterproofing company, Ohio Basement Authority offers basement flood prevention and waterproofing solutions that will ensure that your basement stays dry.
There are few things that can cause more damage to a home than a full-scale basement flood, especially if you have a finished basement. Plumbing failures and severe weather are the most common causes of flooding, which is why it’s essential to be prepared.

Prevent flooding through basement stairways and hatchway doors
Hatchway entrances leak from three critical points: underneath metal hatchway doors, where the hatchway and foundation meet, and through cracks in the concrete. No matter how water is flooding into your home from the hatchway doors, our Hatchway Door System is a great way to keep it out of your basement space. The system is designed with a half-round pipe section, with a grated top fitting. When installed, it’s flush with the rest of your concrete floor for a clean, professional job.
The system is meant to be used as part of an existing perimeter drain system. It spans the staircase, collecting water that spills down and directs it to your drain and sump pump system. This system can span the entrance of the hatchway, or can be extended inside the hatchway itself.
