A homeowner in London, OH, wanted to have his crawl space encapsulated and create a cleaner, drier environment. He also wanted it to be more level for storage purposes.
One of our inspectors visited the home to identify the problems. Upon entering the crawl space, he measured and noted that the relative humidity of the space was 68%. There was no water in there, but it was really messy and dirty. He explained to the homeowner how CrawlSeal Liner works to completely encapsulate the crawl space from the outside world. It is a 20 millimeter-thick, 7-layer plastic liner that is waterproof and antimicrobial. He also went over the uses of drainage matting and how it would create more cushioning in the crawl space and make the floor more level. Finally, he mentioned that spray foam could be used as extra insulation to bring down the humidity.
The homeowner agreed to have all of these things done to his crawl space, and he is very happy with the results. It is now a waterproofed, encapsulated, and usable space.
