Review by in Lancaster, OH
I had lined up another company to waterproof our basement but decided to get one more estimate before the commitment. Josh, from Basement Authority convinced me to choose them. Josh showed me videos and explained how the water guard system works. The crew that came out were very professional and courteous. Midway through the job the guys showed me what was being done and asked if I had any questions. I would definitely recommend Basement Authority to anyone having water issues!!!
Response by Ohio Basement Authority: Thank you so much for your review and for trusting our company with your waterproofing project! We are happy to hear that you had a remarkable experience with our team! If we can assist you with anything else, please let us know.

Review by in Reynoldsburg, OH
Ohio Basement Authority and their employees are great people. We had someone out to do work on our internet and when they got into the crawlspace they said there was standing water. Thus beginning our roller coaster ride to where we are now. I initially contact The Basement Doctor and had them do an estimate, their initial estimate came out to around $25k. Upon having their lead foreman out we were told the estimate was completely wrong and it would be about $10k more. Upon hearing that I did some research and found that The Basement Doctors price per "Pier" was about $800 above the midwest average. When their lead foreman scheduled to meet with us he was 45 minutes late. With an estimate of $32k and only a half encap for our crawlspace. Then comes Ohio Basement Authority. I saw them on another google review and gave them a call for an estimate. They sent out their sales representative Andrew who was on time and very forward and honest about what to expect. Their estimate came out to around $28k including a full encapsulation, sump pump (waterproofing) and a commercial grade dehumidifier. The crews showed up on time and started work. Ryan's crew was here first and answered any and all questions or requests I had without hesitation. They explained everything as they were doing and made sure we understood what to expect the property to look like post project and why. Jose's crew came in after Ryan's to do the waterproofing and encapsulation, they were courteous and efficient and did an amazing job. Both crews cleaned up very well. The crawlspace was clean enough I crawled around with my 3 year old after the epoxy vapors subsided. All in all, I would recommend anyone who needs to have foundation or waterproofing work done should give OBA a call and get an estimate, I can almost guarantee it'll be less expensive and an all around better experience than anyone else.

We had our sump pump replaced and our crawl space encapsulated. Everyone I had contact with was extremely courteous, professional and knowledgeable. John, our salesman, thoroughly explained the projects, which was very helpful. The installation crew, Evert, Davis and Amilcar were very careful to cover the wood floors leading to the basement door with plastic. They got both projects done in under 5 hours. They were polite, friendly and answered all my questions. We are so happy with the results and would highly recommend Ohio Basement Authority to anyone.

Review by in Columbus, OH
I had a great experience with Ohio Basement Authority. The man who came out to give a quote was friendly and local to my area. He took the time to explain to me why it happened and how we could fix it. We landed on a solution that was $12,000 less than the Basement Dr. quote! The issue I had was the front of my foundation was slanting in 3.5inches twisting my support beam, pushing out 2 other walls and the back wall cracked do too last winter. It was a scary mess, but they we kind, helpful and didn’t make it more anxiety stricken then it already was. Great company!

I had OBA replace my 60+ year old sewer line which was being eaten away by tree roots and a drainage pipe that had collapsed under a new driveway that the former homeowners had put in. From the associate who provided the estimate to the two crews that came to perform the work, I was thoroughly impressed with this company. Not only did they provide a better quote than two other companies I had take a look, but they also provided great recommendations about what to fix and what was unnecessary padding. They were able to schedule the work within the same month and I stayed around during the construction to watch them work. They were very polite, mindful of the neighbors and checked with me each time they had to do anything off script. Even the city inspector who stopped by to inspect the work indicated to me privately that the crew knew what they were doing and was performing good work. No one wants to dig up their yard to replace a sewer line but if it is something you have to do, you want to someone you can trust. I couldn't have been more happy with my experience with OBA and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a similar repair.

My installers of a new, bigger, reservoir and 2 new sump pumps were Gene and Jerimiah. They were careful to not damage my carpet on the finished side of my basement and even scrubbed the floor where they were working before they left. Good job guys!!!

The office was fabulous. The gentleman that we worked with that did our estimate was professional and a pleasure to work with. The 2 man crew that was sent to our home to fix our waterlines were not as friendly or as easy to work with. Lots of miscommunication which led to unnecessary work and cosmetic damage to my lawn. I should add that this took place while I was at work and could not oversee the project. I accept some of the blame of this. They were given a drawn map of directions from their office and I also received a copy. These directions were not followed. Once we returned from work and could assist, the work was completed and the men stayed until everything was cleaned up. This was well past their normal hours.
Response by Ohio Basement Authority: As we strive to provide a remarkable experience for each customer, it is truly bothersome that this was not the case for you. We encourage each customer to offer feedback and ask questions while our crews are on site. In case any expectations have not been met, we can fix or correct them while on site immediately. The fact that this was not executed was unfortunate, but will be communicated to each member of our staff to reiterate the importance of our processes to ensure a WOW customer experience. We would appreciate the opportunity to continue to work with you, and please call our office directly if we can assist with anything else.

Very polite, professional and on time. The manager that did the estimate was on time ( unlike some from Home advisor i.e some no shows) Explained exactly what they would do at a reasonable price! The workers were professional , well prepared and cleaned up after the work. I would recommend OBA!! Thanks
