The crawl space under their house has been out of sight and out of mind for many years for homeowners in Springfield, OH. But after recently noticing increased moisture, dampness and musty odors, the owners decided to take a look in this area. They were surprised to find nasty, wet, moldy insulation, debris, and open vents in the crawl space.
The owners wanted to nip these issues in the bud, and they were motivated to seek assistance from Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads. One of our inspectors then visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. After discussing his findings with the homeowners, as well as their goals with a repair project, our inspector then recommended the perfect solutions to transform the crawl space.
One of our crews then took great care to remove the unhealthy, unsightly nuisances from the crawl space. Thick drainage matting was placed on the crawl space floor to enhance the durability of the encapsulation material. ExTremeBloc insulation panels were placed on the walls, and spray foam insulation was applied to the band joists.
The crawl space was then completely encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner fully seals the crawl space from the earth, prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and also helps insulate the crawl space. CrawlSeal is tough enough to crawl on, making the crawl space a more functional area for storage.
The owners are happy to now have a safer and healthier crawl space and home because of these trustworthy solutions.
