After living in their house for almost 20 years, homeowners in Marysville, OH, were ready to put the house on the market. They knew they needed to tackle various repair projects around the house, including fixing up the areas that are normally out of sight and out of mind – the basement and crawl space.
As they cleaned out the basement, the owners noticed a musty odor originating from the crawl space area. They wanted to see what they could do to fix this issue before proceeding with their to-do list, so they researched potential repairs. They came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them.
They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. Considering the homeowners’ repair goals of sealing the crawl space to isolate the home from the earth, as well as save energy, our inspector then presented the owners with some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.
One of our crews then transformed the crawl space by encapsulating the area in thick and durable CrawlSeal liner. This liner is a moisture and vapor barrier, which also helps insulate the crawl space. The crawl space was further insulated with ExTremeBloc panels on the walls and panels that were placed on the floor before the encapsulation process.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy products have helped them create a healthier living environment for the next owners.
