Because homeowners in Pickerington, OH, use their basement for storage, it is important for them to maintain a dry and healthy environment.
Three partial crawl spaces are adjacent to the vast basement area. Each has its own access point, which is open to the basement. While this is convenient for access, it also means the atmosphere inside each crawl space is affecting the basement and the rest of the home. The dirt and gravel floors in these crawl spaces were not covered, any existing insulation was failing, and debris was strewn about.
The owners wanted to correct these issues so their home would always be healthy. They didn’t hesitate to call on Ohio Basement Authority again because of their previous experience on other projects with us.
We encapsulated each crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. The home is completely isolated from the earth by this liner, as well as protected from any moisture and vapor intrusion. CrawlSeal also insulates the area, helping with energy efficiency. The liner is durable enough to crawl on, so the crawl spaces could be used as functional storage areas.
Spray foam insulation was added to the rim joists for further protection, and vent covers were installed on the home’s exterior to seal the crawl spaces from outside air and pests.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these permanent crawl space repair solutions have created a healthier living environment they will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.
