Homeowners in Hilliard, OH, moved into their house during the summer, so they didn’t notice their high heating bills and cold floors until after their first winter in the house. The owners rarely go into the partial crawl space adjacent to their basement, but they suspected their home energy issues may be originating from this area of the house.
The owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company and our crawl space repair services online. One of our inspectors completed a thorough evaluation at the home, and he found failing insulation in the crawl space. This was the cause of the lack of energy efficiency in the home, so various permanent repair options were recommended.
After removing the older fiberglass insulation and board flooring, one of our expert crews completely encapsulated the crawl space in durable CrawlSeal liner. Similar to pool liner, CrawlSeal is thick enough to crawl on, and it acts as a vapor and moisture barrier. ExTremeBloc panels were also installed on the walls. Together, CrawlSeal and ExTremeBloc help insulate the crawl space, as well as create a brighter and more appealing atmosphere.
The owners are excited to now have an energy-efficient crawl space that can be used for storage.
