During the 20 years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Westerville, OH, have kept the condition of their crawl space on the back burner and in the back of their minds. They use this area underneath their house to store various belongings, but the crawl space is far from a healthy or ideal storage space. The plastic liner on the floor is failing, as is the nasty, moldy insulation on the walls.
Addressing the crawl space has been on the homeowners’ to-do list for some time, and they were motivated to address it once and for all. A radio commercial prompted them to contact Ohio Basement Authority in their search for a permanent solution.
The homeowners met with one of our highly trained inspectors. After completing a thorough evaluation of the crawl space, our inspector presented the homeowners with the perfect permanent solution to their problems.
One of our expert crews encapsulated the crawl space in heavy-duty CrawlSeal liner. CrawlSeal is a thick and durable liner that is similar to swimming pool liner. We used CrawlSeal to completely isolate and seal the crawl space from the earth. This liner acts as a moisture and vapor barrier that helps insulate the crawl space, as well. The crawl space was further insulated with spray foam that was applied to the band joists.
CrawlSeal is tough enough to crawl on, so it transforms the crawl space into an ideal storage area. The liner’s durability is further enhanced by the thick drainage matting that was placed underneath it on the crawl space floor. CrawlSeal also brightens the crawl space and dramatically improves the area’s appearance.
The homeowners are pleased they finally checked crawl space repair off of their list, and they now have peace of mind knowing this reliable repair method has helped them create a safer living environment.
