A homeowner in Westerville, OH, just moved into his house, and he could not believe what he saw in the crawl space. The area underneath the home was full of debris, failing insulation and liner, and open vents that invite pests and other unwanted intrusions. These are the ingredients of an unhealthy crawl space. Anything in the crawl space also affects the health of the rest of the home.
The homeowner wanted to correct these issues before they resulted in more significant and costly problems. He contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online.
We transformed and improved the health of the crawl space by removing the old, nasty insulation and debris. The area was then completely encapsulated in durable CrawlSeal liner, which isolates the home from the earth and serves as a vapor and moisture barrier. Vent covers were also installed on the home's exterior to seal the crawl space from outside air and pests.
Waterproofing products were also installed to keep the basement dry, including an SafeDri sump pump and FreezeGuard attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line. New downspout conductor lines were installed, as well.
The homeowner was pleased these permanent solutions were installed so his house will now be a healthier living environment for many more years to come!
