Homeowners in Mount Gilead, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 25 years ago. They were aware of some issues in the crawl space, but they knew they could not continue to ignore these problems any longer. This area adjacent to the basement had failing, moldy insulation, debris, and pests like mice and rats. It was simply a nasty area in the house that they wanted cleaned up and fixed for good.
While researching potential repairs, the owners came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online. They were motivated to contact us and then meet with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them. Inspector Zeke Fowler completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space, and he recommended some of our reliable repair solutions.
One of our crews first removed the nasty debris and insulation from the crawl space. Then they encapsulated the area in thick and durable CrawlSeal liner. CrawlSeal fully seals the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. ExTremeBloc panels also were placed on the crawl space walls to further insulate the area.
Additionally, vent covers were placed on the home’s exterior to further seal the crawl space from outside air, precipitation and pests.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safer and healthier forever home.
