During the 25 years they have lived in their house, homeowners in Sugar Grove, OH, kept the partial crawl space adjacent to the basement out of sight and out of mind. But they knew they could no longer continue to ignore this area under their house. The owners rarely go into the crawl space, but they knew it felt cold, as did the floor directly above this area.
The homeowners were motivated to address this once and for all. They learned about Ohio Basement Authority online and were eager to contact us for further assistance. They met with one of our inspectors who ventured into the crawl space to evaluate its condition. He found this nasty area was full of debris, failing insulation and floor liner, and it was vented to allow outside air and pests into the home. He talked about his findings with the homeowners and he suggested some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.
Foreman Martimiano Alonso and his crew then transformed this unhealthy area. Once they cleared the crawl space of any debris and nuisances, drainage matting was placed on the floor as an enhancement for the encapsulation material. The crawl space was then encapsulated with thick and durable Crawlseal liner. The area also was insulated with ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls, as well as spray foam insulation that was applied to the band joists. The vents also were concealed with exterior covers to further seal the crawl space from unwanted outside nuisances.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a healthier living environment.
