Maintaining a healthy living environment for their families often is at the top of homeowners’ priorities. It certainly is for homeowners in Carey, OH, who were concerned with their daughter’s asthma problems. They have lived in the house for 10 years, but just recently began to consider the state of the crawl space under the home.
The owners never go into this area, but they wanted to have it inspected in case it was contributing to any health issues. They began to research how to best address this problem, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They were eager to meet with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. While the area was not in extreme disrepair, the open vents invited a host of unhealthy conditions. The inspector then presented the owners with our reliable crawl space repair solutions.
One of our crews encapsulated the crawl space in Crawlseal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, Crawlseal is thick and durable. It completely seals the crawl space from the earth, prevents moisture and vapor intrusion, and helps insulate the crawl space. Spray foam was applied to the band joists to further insulate the crawl space. Vent covers also were placed on the home’s exterior to completely seal the crawl space from outside air, water and pests.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be a healthier living environment for their family because of these trustworthy solutions.
