A homeowner in Galloway, OH, has lived in her house for 14 years. But it wasn't until recently that she started to notice a problem under her home. She stored some items in the crawl space, but this area also was full of debris. It also had failing insulation and plastic floor liner.
Concerned with the health and safety of her home and her belongings, the owner started to research repair options. She found information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and she wanted to contact us for further assistance. One of our inspectors visited to evaluate the condition of the crawl space. He then presented some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions to the owner.
The owner was eager to move forward with the repair project, which was completed by Foreman Joe Dials and his crew. The crew first removed the crawl space nuisances like the problematic insulation and floor liner. They then insulated the crawl space with ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls. Spray foam insulation also was applied to the band joists.
The crawl space was then encapsulated in CrawlSeal. This is a thick and durable liner that completely seals and isolates the crawl space. It also is a moisture and vapor barrier. This material is tough enough to crawl on, creating a better storage space.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing she has a healthier and functional crawl space and home because of these reliable repairs.
