A homeowner in Covington, Ohio called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati regarding several bowing walls in her basement. There is water seeping into the basement through the areas where the walls have shifted.
Donny, our Certified Inspector, met with the homeowner and discovered the walls were in urgent need of being stabilized, along with some waterproofing that needs to be done there. The homeowner decided to first start with getting the walls stabilized and to tackle the waterproofing at a later date.
Donny recommended the installation of several PowerBraces to be installed. These PowerBraces are our patented zinc-coated, I-beam used to stabilize foundation walls that are bowing. In the first three photos, you can see the bowing of the walls. In the last photo, you can see some of the PowerBraces that were installed. The wall is now stable. The PowerBraces can be tightened over time and can potentially straighten the walls.

A homeowner in Laura, Ohio had recently purchased their home and noticed there is water seeping into the unfinished basement from the seam between the floor and the wall. The home was built in the 1960s, has a block foundation and a sump pump has already been installed but is still not able to keep up with the water that is seeping in. We recommend WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System to resolve this problem for the homeowner. The WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed along the perimeter of the foundation walls to intercept the water that is seeping in. The water then will be pumped out of the home through the sump pump system that is currently installed. The homeowner would also have the option of adding a new sump pump system or a battery back up system to the current pump that is already in place. By adding a newer pump or a battery back up pump the customer will have the extra security of knowing the basement is going to be free of water and will be able to use the basement as he intended.
A Tipp City, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the unfinished basement. We installed our patented WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System along with a TripleSafe Sump Pump System to solve this problem for the homeowner. WaterGuard is a piping system that will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and drain it away from the house through the TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The TripleSafe System is a three pump system. The first pump is the main pump and will do the majority of the pumping. The second pump will automatically turn on if the first pump becomes overwhelmed or fails. The third pump is a battery back up pump and will automatically come on during power failures. These three pumps fit perfectly into the TripleSafe Liner. It also includes a Water Watch alarm that will sound if there is a problem with the system. WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System along with a TripleSafe Sump Pump System will give the homeowner security that the basement is safe from water intrusion.
A Piqua, Ohio homeowner was having problems with the floor settling and cracks in the drywall in the home. He met with one of our Certifed Inspectors, Mark, who recommended that SmartJack floor Support System is installed. SmartJack Floor system is a high-capacity adjustable pier used to stop settling and can even raise the floor back up to the original position. A structural stone footing is compacted in place, then the SmartJack is cut to size and installed under the area needing support. The adjustable screw jacks up the floor to the desired height. This can also be re-adjusted in the future if needed.
A homeowner in Piqua, Ohio had recently purchased their home when they noticed that water was seeping into the basement near where an addition to the home had been built. The homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati to find solutions to this problem. The homeowner met with Chris, a certified inspector, who recommended WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a TrenchDrain, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System with an UltraSump Battery Back-up System is installed to resolve this problem for the homeowner.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system installed to intercept the water that is seeping into the basement. The water is then pumped into a sump pump system, such as a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System to be pumped out of the basement. The Trench Drain is a piping system with a grated top so that water coming from under doors can drain into the drainage system also to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a high-end Zoeller 1/3 hp cast iron pump. It has the WaterWatch Alarm that will sound if there is a problem with the pump alerting the homeowner to a problem to be resolved before damage can occur. The SuperLiner is a rugged-heavy duty liner with 96 holes in it to allow water to flow directly from under the floor. The Airtight Lid design keeps moisture from evaporating back into the basement, keeps things from falling in, strong enough to stand on, and keeps out bugs and odors.
The UltraSump Battery Back-up System is optional, but highly recommended battery back-up system. The UltraSump will turn on during primary pump or power failure and will run on battery. This also sounds an alarm to let the homeowner know that the back-up system is running.
Now that the WaterGuard is intercepting the water that seeps into the basement and the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is pumping the water out of the basement. The homeowner will be able to use the basement for storage and extra living space without worries of water intrusion.
A homeowner in Troy, Ohio was having problems with water seeping into the basement in several places. The home was built in the 50s, has a finished basement, and there was no sump pump installed at the time. The homeowner met with Donny, a certified inspector, who recommended that WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a TrenchDrain, a TripleSafe Sump Pump System, and CleanSpace Wall System is installed to resolve the water problems that the homeowner was experiencing in the basement.
Waterguard Basement Waterproofing system is a non-clogging piping system that is designed to intercept water that seeps into the basement unseen by the homeowner. The water is then drained into a sump pump system to be removed from the basement. The TrenchDrain is a piping system also but has a grated top to allow water to flow into. It is commonly used across doorways and hatches.
The TripleSafe Sump Pump System is a three pump system. Pump 1, the primary pump, will do the majority of the pumping. Pump 2, is a 1/2 hp high volume pump and will turn on if pump 1 fails or becomes overwhelmed with a heavy water volume. Pump 2 will turn on to give it a "turbo boost" when it is needed. Pump 3 is the UltraSump Battery Back-up System. Pump 3 will automatically turn on during a power failure to remove water from the basement. It comes with its own battery and charging station.
The CleanSpace Wall System is our most economical wall covering. CleanSpace Wall System is a bright white plastic liner, similar to a pool liner, that is designed to cover the walls and will also drain wall leaks down into the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System. CleanSpace Wall System reflects the natural light in the basement and helps to brighten up the basement.
WaterGuard working with these other systems will provide the homeowner with a dry basement that they can use for extra living space and storage without worrying about water intrusion.
A homeowner in Bradford, Ohio called The Basement Doctor regarding some problems with cracking in the walls and some sagging floors. The home is an older home built in the 1920s, has a dirt crawl space floor. One of the first problems that the homeowner had was that the opening was too small for anyone to enter into the crawl space. After having that resolved the homeowner had a certified inspector come to look at the crawl space to find out what needed to be done. The certified inspector recommended that the homeowner have SmartJack Floor Supports installed along with a supplemental beam to support the floors of the home. To install a SmartJack Floor Support, a structural stone is compacted into place and a steel pier is cut to size and placed under the floor that is in need of support. The adjustable screw on the pier is used to jack up the floor into a level position.
Something to consider for homes without a vapor barrier is the CleanSpace Encapsulation System. The CleanSpace Liner is a plastic liner, similar to a pool liner. The CleanSpace liner is attached to the floors and walls of the crawl space to provide a mold and vapor-proof barrier. This keeps moisture in the ground from getting into the crawl space area and eventually making its way into the home. Too much moisture in the crawl space can encourage mold, musty odors and allergens. Call to schedule an appointment with a certified inspector for more ways to improve the environment of your home by encapsulating your crawl space!
