After living in her house for five years, a homeowner in Westerville, OH, started to question the health and safety of her living environment. A recent peek inside a partial crawl space adjacent to the basement revealed a very unhealthy area. The crawl space had failing insulation and plastic floor liner, as well as evidence of moisture.
The owner wanted to have these issues corrected once and for all, so she started looking into repair options. After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, the owner was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help her. One of our inspectors completed a thorough assessment of the crawl space, and he recommended the perfect repairs.
One of our crews then took great care to remove the unhealthy nuisances from the crawl space. The crawl space was then insulated with SilverGlo panels that were placed on the walls. Drainage matting was placed on the floor to enhance the durability of the encapsulation material, and the crawl space was then encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick liner completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and improves the functionality of the crawl space so it can be used for storage.
The homeowner is pleased to have a safer and healthier crawl space and home because of these reliable solutions.
