During the year that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Millfield, OH, noticed issues in their basement and crawl space areas. These included moisture and improper insulation, which became more evident during cold winter months.
The homeowners wanted to ensure the health and safety of the 150-year-old house. During their research for repair options, the homeowners learned more about Ohio Basement Authority online and they were eager to contact us for help with transforming their basement and crawl space areas.
After meeting with Inspector John Becker Sr., the homeowners were excited for the crew to install several reliable basement waterproofing and crawl space repair products. Because of the older home’s dirt crawl space and basement flooring, the CrawlDrain drainage system was installed to catch any seeping water. This water is then directed to the SafeDri ProX sump pump in the basement that will pump the water out of the home and away from the foundation.
Both the crawl space and basement were encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick, durable liner completely isolates these environments from the earth. CrawlSeal also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the basement and crawl space. Additional insulation measures included applying spray foam insulation to the band joists and placing foam insulation panels on the crawl space and basement floors before the encapsulation process.
The homeowners are excited to have a basement and crawl space that will now be safer, drier, and healthier because of these reliable repair solutions.
