Homeowners in London, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 25 years ago. It wasn’t until recently, however, that they began to notice dampness and musty odors emanating from the crawl space.
With health issues like allergies, the owners wanted to address these nuisances before their health and the health of their home was impacted. One of the owners previously worked with Ohio Basement Authority to initiate a basement waterproofing project at church. He knew he could count on us to provide the same quality service and solutions in his personal home.
One of our inspectors visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the problematic crawl space. He discussed his findings with the owners, as well as their goals for repair, and he then recommended some of our reliable crawl space repair solutions.
After removing the debris and other nuisances from the crawl space like nasty, failing insulation, one of our crews then encapsulated the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner completely isolates the crawl space from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. The crawl space was further insulated with ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls. Vent covers also were placed on the home’s exterior to further seal the area from outside air, precipitation and pests.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a healthier and safer living environment.
