Homeowners in Thornville, OH, have lived in their house since it was built almost 10 years ago. Recently, however, the owners started to notice problems in the crawl space including moisture and humidity. They had a dehumidifier, but it wasn’t doing the trick.
Hoping to correct these issues and enhance the health of their home, the owners began to search for repair solutions. After they heard about Ohio Basement Authority, they were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the crawl space. He recommended having one of our crews transform the crawl space by removing any failing insulation and debris and encapsulating the area.
One of our crews then completed this project by encapsulating the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner, insulating the area with ExTremeBloc panels on the walls, and replacing the inefficient dehumidifier with the more reliable dehumidifier unit.
All of these solutions work together to improve the appearance of the crawl space, as well as its health, and the health of the above living environment, thus giving the homeowners peace of mind.
