Crawl Space Encapsulation Creates a Safer, Functional Home in Powell, OH

Monday, June 10th, 2019 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

Longtime homeowners in Powell, OH, use the partial crawl space adjacent to their basement for storage, but a recent peek inside this area under their house revealed some problems. The insulation was beginning to fall of the walls, and the area just seemed dirty and dusty.

The owners were concerned with the health and safety of their home, as well as the condition of their stored items. They knew they could trust Ohio Basement Authority for the right repair solution because they were well acquainted with one of our inspectors. One of our inspectors visited their home to complete a thorough assessment of the crawl space. He then presented the owners with some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.

Solution

One of our crews first took great care to remove the insulation, plastic floor liner, and other debris and nuisances from the crawl space.

Thick drainage matting was then placed on the floor to help enhance the strength of the encapsulation material. The crawl space was then encapsulated in thick and durable CrawlSeal liner. CrawlSeal completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth, and it acts as a moisture and vapor barrier.

CrawlSeal brightens the crawl space, and it is tough enough to crawl on, thus transforming the crawl space into a safer, healthier and more functional area that can be used for storage.

The homeowners are pleased this repair project was completed to help them enhance the health and safety of their home.
