Steve B was professional and personable and forthcoming. He also didn't try to upsale us. His inspection process and expertise was outstanding. The company just wasn't the right fit for our needs. But I highly recomend to others

From our very first encounter with Ohio Basement Authority, Tyler S. and Preston D. were nothing short of amazing! Not only were they prompt and professional, they understood our wants and needs and designed a plan to make it happen. The installation team (Iran H., Chris M., Damarion A.) were equally as wonderful! Even after the work was done, Preston D. followed up to make sure everything was still satisfactory. I can’t recommend these guys enough. Thank you, OBA!

Ohio Basement Authority did a great job with our basement. Damarion, Max, Rachel, and Arman were professional and knowledgeable. Damarion is great with customers. He walked me through the project, gave me updates and ensured my satisfaction with the project. The house was cleaned up prior them leaving. It is peace of mind knowing your basement is protected.

Sean and Nick did great work on our basement push pier project. They always showed up on time, communicated clearly, and cleaned up after the job was finished. We were so impressed by these two hard working guys. They worked well together, and stayed on site the whole day. Took short breaks, and pushed on to get the project completed in just a few days! Highly recommend. They took care to explain things as they worked and answered any and all our questions.Leigh and Al Sassler

8.31.2023Update.After miscommunication I believe we are all set and we will see how it functions!That was fixed.Just waiting on final finished walls to be done which would have been next week but I couldn't do that so will be the following!And now my 2 year old washing machine is leaking from the bottom. If I knew this was going to completely ruin capacity to do laundry……they should have extended the sump pump.Or said you can't use your washer dryer.Got a call yesterday and he had no clue what was discussed discussed aND still needed to be fixed. From Friday evening To Monday 4 pm it was never communicated..So Day three and the plumber was sent out as promised. Matt who was the person I met first who does the assessments now is really great at being hands-on. I met with one of their competitors the day after Matt came. Matt struck me as honest and I read BBB reviews. Ohio Basement stood out because they remedied issues. The other guys did not. The others tried to get me…all 3 of them …to sign that night. Which made me want to say my doors here…bye! Matt simply told me facts. He came out tonight and moved my washer back for me. He told me a plumber was coming and they did. They guys who worked on the basement were really nice and professional. My basement crawl space no longer smells and the musty basement odor is reduced significantly already.A few loose ends which Matt is working on will be fixed and it'll be 5 stars.

Eric Gibson, the crew leader, showed up as scheduled, explained what was going to be done, and performed his work in a responsible and competent manner. When he discovered another problem, he repaired it and, thus, saved us from major issues in the future.We have already recommended the Ohio Basement Authority to three of our neighbors.

Had a great consultation with Matthew Workman. He was professional, courteous, and thorough and explained the inspection, results, repair options, and final repair contract in perfect detail. Looking forward to the work being completed and will update this review at that time.

Home Repair Specialists in Cincinnati

Cincinnati is situated along the Ohio River in southwest Ohio. This area and nearby locales including Hamilton, Mason, and Middletown have a fairly humid, continental type of climate. Cold and snowy winters, wet springs, and hot and rainy summers keep the area and its soil well-saturated. The Cincinnati soil series is made up of deep, well-drained soils that contain silt loam, silty clay loam, and clay loam. The clay soil can have a significant impact on your home’s foundation by expanding and exerting incredible pressure on the walls. This leads to wall cracks, bowing, and water leaks. Moisture and humidity also can easily infiltrate your home through the basement or crawl space and contribute to mold growth, sagging floors, and pest infestations.

While these problems are common in Cincinnati homes, they’re not normal to live with. Your health and your home’s structural stability will be negatively impacted the longer they are neglected. But the professionals at Ohio Basement Authority can help you better protect your home by installing permanent, fully customizable foundation, basement, crawl space, and concrete repair solutions.
