We would like to share our experience with Zeke Fowler who came to our home today (2/16/23) to provide a free estimate to repair our front porch steps that are leaning by 1-1/4 inch. Although we haven't committed to the service and are still considering all our options, Zeke was was extremely professional, very thorough, trustworthy and a wealth of knowledge. He actually went above and beyond by getting to the root cause of the leaning and pointed out other areas that could be of concern. He was able to point out that our down spouts are not draining the rain water out to the street, thus causing water to pool and saturate the front yard where a large size dip has formed over a couple of decades. So, he not only provided the reasonable cost to perform the repairs but he also pointed out other areas of our property, specifically the sidewalks where there is some unevenness that has the potential for trip hazards. We are so thankful that Zeke was the person that Ohio Basement Authority sent to our home today, because we can't imagine anyone else with more expert knowledge than him. If you are a homeowner in need of their services, we highly recommend Zeke to be the person you could request. Thanks again.

We had our Basement waterproofed and everyone we worked with was excellent! Jacob came out to assess our basement and was professional, friendly, and not at all pushy or trying to sell us something we didn't need. We decided to be proactive and waterproof our basement. Aaron Ison and his team came to our house over a 2 day period and were great! Very professional, explained everything they were doing throughout the process, and kept everything clean. It was a great experience and would recommend them for all your basement needs.

Rob Jennings and his crew were super per nice and professional in the worst of conditions. They left our house clean while in and out dozens of times and tracking through snow mud and ice. Looking forward to not worrying about sumo and drainage line issues.

Travis came out to the house on time and was super friendly and helpful. Turns out my walls were already fixed and didn’t need to be repaired by then. He was very helpful and letting me know how I could fix it on my own and didn’t need their service. I am very thankful for honest businesses who don’t try and sell you something you don’t need! Thank you Travis!

Ohio Basement Authority installed an egress window for me. Joe Stuber and his crew were a pleasure to work with. The excavation and block cutting necessary for installation of an egress window are messy jobs. I appreciated the fact that Joe and his crew took extra care to keep the mess to an absolute minimum. Joe was also great about letting me know what his intentions were for the job and confirming that his intentions would meet my expectations. As a result, I couldn’t be more pleased with my new window and the people at OBA.

History

Founded in 2009, 20-year foundation repair veteran Doug Secrest quickly grew Ohio Basement Authority to become the leading foundation services company in Ohio. Solving homeowner’s basement waterproofing, foundation, and crawl space repair problems across the region. 

From the offices in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio Basement Authority has been recognized for the outstanding work they perform by the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.

In July 2019, Ohio Basement Authority joined Groundworks, the nation’s largest privately-owned foundation services company. This merger allows for newly-found expansion freedom and the support and resources to grow quicker than previously expected.
