Crawl Space Encapsulation for a Healthier Home in Westerville, OH

Thursday, June 6th, 2019 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

After living in their house for almost 10 years, homeowners in Westerville, OH, began to notice some problems. They were concerned with the partial crawl space adjacent to the basement. They noticed unpleasant, musty smells coming from this area of the home, and a recent peek inside revealed the insulation and plastic floor liner were failing.

They wanted to ensure the health and safety of their home, so the owners started to investigate possible repairs. During their online research, the owners came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website. After learning more about our company and our crawl space repair services, they were eager to contact us for further guidance.

They met with one of our inspectors Inspector who ventured into the crawl space to complete a thorough evaluation of the area. After discussing the owners’ goals with a repair project, our inspector then recommended the perfect solutions.

Solution

After taking great care to first remove the insulation, debris and other nuisances from the crawl space, one of our crews then started the encapsulation project. Drainage matting was placed on the floor to enhance the strength and durability of the encapsulation material.

The crawl space was then encapsulated in thick, strong CrawlSeal liner. This liner completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the home. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. CrawlSeal is tough enough to crawl on, and it helps transform the crawl space into an ideal storage area.

The owners are pleased to have a healthier crawl space and home because of these trustworthy repairs.
