After living in their house for 17 years, homeowners in Dublin, OH, began to notice some problems with the crawl space. They use this area under the house for storage, but they noticed mice had taken up residence there. It also was full of unpleasant odors and nasty, failing insulation.
The owners were tired of dealing with all of these unhealthy and unsightly problems, and they wanted to find the right remedy right away. As they began to research how to best address these issues, the owners came across information online about Ohio Basement Authority. They were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them.
They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. He noted the same issues with the area as the owners. As he discussed his findings with the owners, as well as their repair goals, he recommended some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.
Foreman Milton Castro and his crew then transformed the crawl space. First, they took great care to remove the existing insulation, lining and debris from the crawl space.
Drainage matting was then placed on the crawl space floor. This thick material enhances the durability of the encapsulation material.
The crawl space was then encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. CrawlSeal is tough enough to crawl on. That way, the crawl space can be used as a clean, worry-free storage area.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair project has helped enhance the health and functionality of their crawl space and home.
