Not long after moving into their house, homeowners in Bloomingburg, OH, wanted to complete various repair projects around the home. Even though they never went into the crawl space, they wondered if this area under the house was affecting the health of the rest of the home.
After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they contacted us to see how we could help them. One of our inspectors assessed the condition of the crawl space and recommended some of our trustworthy repairs.
The day our crew arrived to install these reliable solutions in the nasty crawl space, they found the area had flooded with water from heavy rains. The crew first pumped the water out of the crawl space and then began to waterproof it with the CrawlDrain drainage system and SafeDri sump pump. If any water seeps inside the crawl space, the CrawlDrain system will catch it and direct it to the sump. From there the water is pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home.
The crawl space also was encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth. It also serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space.
Additional installations included a FreezeGuard on the exterior sump pump discharge line, and the access well that replaced the leaking window.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these reliable solutions have improved the health of the crawl space and their home.
