After living in their house for 14 years, homeowners in Heath, OH, recently began to seriously question the health of their home. They wondered if the condition of the crawl space under the house could be affecting the rest of their living environment. After a recent peek inside the crawl space, they noticed this was a very unhealthy area full of debris and moldy, failing insulation.
The homeowners wanted to fix these issues right away, so they started to research how to best address them. They were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They met with one of our inspectors who ventured into the crawl space to complete a thorough evaluation of the area. He then recommended our reliable crawl space repair solutions.
One of our crews first took precautions in removing the debris and nasty insulation from the crawl space. Then they encapsulated the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is thick and durable. It fully seals the crawl space from the earth, prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and helps insulate the crawl space. Additional insulation measures included installing ExTremeBloc panels on the crawl space walls and applying spray foam insulation to the band joists.
The crawl space also was further sealed by placing vent covers on the home’s exterior.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy products were installed to help create a safer and healthier living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
