After one year of owning their vacation home, homeowners in Nelsonville, OH, began to notice various issues such as cold floors and water collecting in the crawl space. These issues can lead to an uncomfortable and unhealthy atmosphere within the home.
The owners wanted to be sure this home away from home would be a safe and healthy living environment, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our crawl space repair services online.
We completely transformed this unhealthy area underneath the home by installing several of our reliable crawl space repair products.
The crawl space was encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner, which acts as an insulating water and moisture barrier. This liner is also compatible with the SafeDri sump pump that was installed to pump any seeping water out of and away from the crawl space. Spray foam insulation also was added to the rim joists for extra insulation.
The sump pump discharge line was tied into a new downspout conductor line. Exterior vent covers were also placed over the vents to prevent pests, outside air, and precipitation from entering the crawl space.
The homeowners were excited these various permanent solutions were installed so their vacation home will be a healthy place to visit for many years to come.
