Job Stories From Lorain County, OH
Wall Rebuild in Avon Lake, Ohio

A house that was built in the 1950s is expected to have some cosmetic issues and that is what is happening with this Avon Lake homeowner. They have owned it for over fifty years and are starting to notice issues occurring in their basement such as water damage, slight bowing to the walls, and cracks in the foundation. 

The Basement Guys were one of the few other companies to visit the house for an estimate. Our sales representative thought the best course of action was to rebuild one wall for a permanent solution. He presented the two options, a basic repair that would last a couple of years with Ohio's weather or completely rebuild the wall for peace of mind. After viewing each proposal, this homeowner believed that we had the best price, products, and employees to repair their basement.

Shortly before we started the project the homeowner wanted to cancel because they were going to have a friend try one more option before committing with a contractor. 

Unpredictable Times in North Ridgeville, OH

After this last year, we all know that life is unpredictable. Unfortunately, COVID-19 completely changed the lives of these North Ridgeville homeowners. They had plans of renovating their basement during the quarantine, even met with several local contractors including The Basement Guys. Before getting the chance to sign any contracts, one of the homeowners lost their job. 

The Basement Guys ensured that when the homeowners are ready to move forward with their project, we would be more than happy to assist them!


No Obligation Appointment in Avon, OH

While spending time outside, Mrs. Smith of Avon, Ohio noticed that her foundation looked like it was sinking. Even though she was not an expert in foundation repair, Mrs. Smith knew she needed a professional to visit the home. 

The Basement Guys sent one of their Basement Professionals to examine her foundation. It did not take very long for our employee to notice that her issue is occurring above the ground. What was happening was there was a gap between her patio and foundation.

Unfortunately, The Basement Guys were not able to solve her issues but we are in the business of helping people so our Basement Professional recommended another local company to assist the homeowner.

CarbonArmor® System Can Save You Money in Lorain, OH

Natalie of Lorain, Ohio wanted to put her house on the market, but small foundation repairs needed to be made before that could happen. Natalie did have a choice to sell her house as-is (but report the issues) or make those changes to increase the property value. Natalie made the right choice and found a local contractor. 

The Basement Guys were selected to do the repairs. Our Basement Professional examined the basement and only found one vertical foundation crack and knew the perfect solution for Natalie. To repair the vertical crack we recommended installing a CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System. These fiber staps are bonded to the wall to stabilize it and prevent any further cracks.  

The Basement Guys had the CarbonArmor® System installed in one day and by the next week, Natalie’s house was on the market. Once her house is sold, we are able to transfer the CarbonArmor® System warranty to the new homeowners!

The smallest of foundation cracks will lead to a bigger foundation issue, we have seen it happen several times. Do not wait until it’s too late, contact The Basement Guys today for a free estimate

Grafton, Ohio Finished Workout Room

A Girard, Ohio family contacted The Basement Guys for an estimate on finishing their basement. They wanted to convert half of it into a gym and recreation area for working out and wanted a bathroom included. Our representative visited and quoted them for the job, and after receiving over-budget estimates from other companies, the family went with us for the job! 

Our team painted trim and walls, added a drop ceiling, installed plumbing for the new bathroom, and installed carpeting. The team ran into a problem with the drain so after speaking with the homeowners, they were allowed to relocate the drain. This is because the drain was in a bad location that interfered with the finishing job.

Gutter Shutter Saves Money in Oberlin, Ohio

Gutters that become clogged with leaves and other debris are not a pretty sight to see on the outside of your home, but can also be harmful to other aspects of your home. Clogged gutters can hold water. When that water has nowhere else to go but to flood into your foundation, onto your roof, or into your yard. This flooding cause was water damage to all of these parts of your home.

A homeowner in Oberlin, Ohio made the smart decision to get an estimate for gutter replacement before any other damage happened to his home. Having Gutter Shutter installed by The Basement Guys was a choice that would save Mr. Homeowner a significant amount of money in the repairs later in life.
The Gutter Shutter system was positioned on this home seamlessly. This homeowner's gutters now allow for water to flow through them freely with this system's no-clog guarantee. There is no longer the worry of excess debris getting caught in the gutters because of the cover that sits on top of the gutter system. The cover is perforated to allow for water flow while keeping leaves out.

This Oberlin, Ohio homeowner could not be happier with the appearance of his gutter system, but also with the money that is being saved later down the road.

Kipton, Ohio Waterproofing Job

A Kipton homeowner lives in a house built in 1970. He noticed seepage and dampness in various locations in the basement. The wall had cracks and one of them was bowing inward. There were also stair step and horizontal cracks present, indicating damage to the foundation. 

The Basement Guys were called to do an estimate on the homeowner’s basement. Our representative quoted him for the WaterGuard® and TripleSafe™ Sump Pump to help with any water seepage. The homeowner liked the plan and scheduled us to do the job, and our team did exactly as the representative quoted. 112 feet of WaterGuard® was installed and the sump pump as well.

The purpose of the WaterGuard® is to collect the water in a below-floor drain system and run it to a sump pump to be taken outside the house. TripleSafe™ is designed with 3 pumps to help in case of a power outage, excessive flooding, or pump failure. Interested in these products? Contact The Basement Guys for your free waterproofing estimate in the Kipton area! 


Preventing More Expensive Projects in Wellington, Ohio

A couple continued to put off having their basement waterproofed. They did not notice any bowing to their foundation wall, but they did have a horizontal crack in that wall. It was never "the right time" to take on that project for these homeowners. Eventually, though, they realized the longer it got put off, the more costly the project would become.

Deciding to get some estimates, one of the homeowners got in contact with The Basement Guys. Our Basement Professionals were able to go and assess the situation in this Wellington, Ohio home and offer some solutions for the family to consider. A single drain was installed into this home to redirect any water leakages that come into the basement. Along with the drain, CarbonArmor® straps were placed on the foundation wall to prevent the horizontal crack from growing.

This family was very happy to have taken that jump to get their problem looked at. They finally stopped putting off the project to wait for a "more convenient" time. Waiting until the project becomes more severe, creates a more expensive project. When you are prepared to stop putting off your home project, contact The Basement Guys for a free estimate.

Concrete Repair Options in Lorain, OH

A homeowner in Lorain, Ohio had two slabs of concrete behind her home sinking. She contacted The Basement Guys for a resolution to this sinkage and was excited about two products offered by this company. First was PolyLevel®. This product was injected below the sunken slabs to lift them back to level. It is a minimally invasive process and does not leave a mess for the homeowner. Lifting the slabs allows for a safe area for the homeowner's children and visitors to walk around without worrying about anyone tripping and falling on the property. The second product that was installed at this home was NexusPro. This solution is a silicone-based sealant that is applied to cracks and joints that have become damaged in slabs of concrete. The combination of these two products allows for the concrete slabs to be completely lifted and repaired without the need to repour them entirely.
