Photo Album: Waterproofing a Leaking Basement and Encapsulating an Unhealthy Crawl Space in New Lexington, OH

Album Description

Homeowners in New Lexington, OH, moved into their house not long after it was built 11 years ago. It wasn’t until recently, however, that they began to notice problems in their basement. Water seemed to leak inside the foundation walls, and this stopped where the wall met the crawl space entrance.

The owners knew both areas needed attention, so they started to research how to best address these problems. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors. After our inspector evaluated the condition of the leaking basement and crawl space, he recommended some of our reliable basement and crawl space repair solutions.

One of our crews then waterproofed the basement by installing the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri sump pump. Any seeping water will be intercepted by the BasementGutter system and then directed to the SafeDri sump pump. The powerful SafeDri then pumps this water out of the basement and away from the home. A FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and YardWell outlets were placed on the ends of the buried downspout conductor lines to conceal the ends of these lines in the yard.

The crawl space also was encapsulated in thick and durable CrawlSeal liner. CrawlSeal isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. Spray foam was applied to the band joists to further insulate the crawl space, and vent covers were placed on the home's exterior to prevent intrusion of outside air, precipitation and pests.

The homeowners are happy they now have a healthier and safer living environment because of these trustworthy repairs.
