After living in their house for several years, homeowners in New Albany, OH, started to notice several issues in their home. These included unpleasant odors, cold floors, and sections of sagging floor. They never go into the crawl space, but they wondered about the condition of this area under their house and if it was indeed contributing to the aforementioned problems. A recent peek inside confirmed their suspicions.
They wanted to seek advice from experts in this field, so they started to research how to best address these issues. They came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. One of our inspectors evaluated the condition of the leaking, unstable crawl space, and he recommended some of our reliable repair solutions.
One of our crews waterproofed the crawl space by installing the CrawlDrain drainage system in the floor to intercept seeping water. This water is then directed to the SafeDri sump pump, and from there it is pumped out of the home.
The crawl space also was encapsulated in Crawlseal liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. We also enhanced the home’s structural stability by installing IntelliJacks underneath steel support beams.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
