Photo Album: Waterproofing and Encapsulating a Nasty Crawl Space in Hebron, OH

Album Description

After living in their house for almost 25 years, homeowners in Hebron, OH, began to question the health and safety of their living environment. They rarely venture into the crawl space, but a recent peek inside this area under their house revealed some glaring problems.

The crawl space was not properly sealed or insulated. It also was full of debris and standing water in some areas. Some of the floor joists also appeared to be failing, as there were some sagging and soft spots on the above floor.

The homeowners began to obtain repair quotes from various companies, and they were eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads, as well as our service vehicles throughout the area. The owners met with Jeff Floit who evaluated the condition of the crawl space. He then presented the owners with our reliable crawl space repair solutions.

One of our expert crews then installed these products. After removing debris and other nuisances from the crawl space, the crew first worked to stabilize the above floors by installing support beams reinforced by IntelliJacks.

The crew then waterproofed the crawl space by installing the CrawlDrain drainage system and SafeDri Pro sump pump. Any seeping water along the crawl space perimeter will be intercepted by the CrawlDrain system. This water is then directed to the SafeDriPro to be pumped out of the crawl space.

After drainage matting was placed on the floor, the crawl space was completely sealed in Crawlseal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, the thick and durable Crawlseal liner fully isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space.  We also installed a Dehumidifier to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their crawl space, as well as the rest of their home, will be a safer and healthier environment because of these trustworthy repair solutions.
