After living in their house for a little more than one year, homeowners in Kingston, OH, started to notice issues with the crawl space under the house. This area was not properly sealed or insulated, and they started to notice mold growth on some of the insulation.
The owners were concerned these conditions could be affecting the rest of the house, and they were motivated to find the perfect repair solution. When they attended a popular home and garden show, the owners stopped at Ohio Basement Authority’s booth and voiced their crawl space concerns to some of our staff. The owners then booked an appointment so they could meet with one of our expert inspectors. Inspector Jeff Floit visited to evaluate the condition of the crawl space, and he then presented the owners with some of our reliable repair solutions.
Foreman Martimiano Alonso and his crew first took great care to rid the crawl space of the failing insulation, liner and other nuisances. They then encapsulated the crawl space in Crawlseal liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space.
The crawl space was further insulated with ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls and spray foam that was applied to the band joists. Vent covers also were placed over the vents on the home’s exterior to further seal the crawl space from outside air, water and pests.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment.
