Photo Album: Encapsulating an Unhealthy Crawl Space in Lithopolis, OH

Album Description

A homeowner in Lithopolis, OH, has lived in her house since it was built 13 years ago. She rarely ventures into the partial crawl space adjacent to the basement, but in recent years she started to notice issues that were not going away. Unpleasant odors were contributing to a very unhealthy area that also was beginning to affect the basement and the rest of the house.

The homeowner was motivated to address these problems once and for all. As she described her concerns to a friend, this friend then recounted his remarkable experience with Ohio Basement Authority on his foundation repair project. The homeowner was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help her. One of our inspectors assessed the condition of the crawl space, which had nasty, failing insulation. The inspector then recommended our reliable crawl space repair solution.

One of our crews then transformed the crawl space with an encapsulation project. They first removed the problematic insulation and floor liner, and then they sealed the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is a thick and durable liner. It fully isolates the crawl space from the earth, prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and helps insulate the crawl space. This liner also helps create an ideal storage space.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing the crawl space, as well as the rest of her home, will be a safer and healthier living environment because of this trustworthy repair solution.
