They moved into their house not long after it was built almost 40 years ago, but homeowners in Westerville, OH, were ready to put their home on the market. Before doing so, the owners knew they must complete various home improvement projects. This included addressing the partial crawl space just off of the basement.
Even though the owners had some boxed items stored in this space, it certainly was not an ideal storage area. Along with debris strewn about the crawl space, this area also featured plastic liner that failed to cover the dirt floor and nasty insulation that was falling victim to mold and moisture. The homeowners worried these conditions would not only affect the health of the home, but their ability to sell it as well.
After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority through our website, the homeowners were eager to contact us for assistance in transforming the problematic crawl space. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who recommended the perfect solution.
One of our crews first removed the debris and other nuisances from the crawl space. Then, they encapsulated the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. The thick and durable CrawlSeal liner fully seals the crawl space from the earth. It also prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and it helps insulate the crawl space. CrawlSeal is tough enough to crawl on, and it helps create a healthy storage area. Its durability is further enhanced by the thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process.
The homeowners are glad the crawl space, as well as the rest of the home, will now be healthy for the next owners because of this reliable repair solution.
