Various repairs are all too common in old houses, and homeowners in Nevada, OH, knew their early 19th Century farmhouse needed some attention. One of their concerns was that the floors in their home were very cold in winter.
Since the home has been in their family for many years, they wanted to ensure its health and safety for the future.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our inspectors recommended various crawl space repair options. One of our expert crews then removed the failing insulation and matting that was causing so many problems, and the crawl space was encapsulated Crawlseal. This product meets the homeowners' goals by controlling the earth's moisture and preventing mold and rot.
A SmartDrain Plumbing Leak System was also installed, and support beams were sistered to enhance the main support beam in the crawl space.
The homeowners are pleased their crawl space is now a healthy and safe environment, which translates to a healthier home!
