After receiving multiple estimates to fix and alleviate our basement water issues, we chose Bakers Waterproofing over the rest.The company reached out within a day to set up a free estimate and within a week arrived for the estimate.Not only was the inspector Jacob professional, he was also informative, upfront with expenses, and never tried to tack on any additional products for more money. The project was completed within 6 weeks from the initial estimate by Bear and his 2 man crew. They have been polite, kept us up to date with the project, explained the work they were doing, answered all of our questions, and have worked with us to resolve any issues they ran into when completing the job. This company offers a true life time warranty and we feel confident our basement water issues are now over thanks to Baker’s Waterproofing!

Bradley was on time and very friendly. Even after we determined that the service I was looking for isn’t a service JES provides and I felt like I had wasted his time he remained professional and pleasant and assured me it was no trouble and he was happy to take a look around while he was here to see if there were any concerns that he could inform me about.Although I won’t be using this company for this project, I am pleased with experience and will definitely consider JES for future needs if they arise.(the service I was wanting: to have an egress window cut into the basement foundation)Update 12/7/22 – Bradley just called me and informed me that he found someone who may be able to help with the egress window. He definitely went above and beyond!

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.
