After investigating possible causes and remedies, they eventually ventured into the crawl space and discovered the foul atmosphere was underneath their home. Wanting to nip this in the bud as soon as possible, the homeowners were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV commercials. One of our highly-trained inspectors completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space and presented the homeowners with a variety of permanent repair solutions. The homeowners were excited for one of our experienced crews to remove the debris from the crawl space, and then encapsulate the area in CrawlSeal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is thick and durable. It completely seals the crawl space environment from the earth, and it acts as a moisture and vapor barrier.

Waterproofing a Flooding Crawl Space in Bloomingburg, OH

Not long after moving into their house, homeowners in Bloomingburg, OH, wanted to complete various repair projects around the home. Even though they never went into the crawl space, they wondered if this area under the house was affecting the health of the rest of the home. After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they contacted us to see how we could help them. One of our inspectors assessed the condition of the crawl space and recommended some of our trustworthy repairs. The day our crew arrived to install these reliable solutions in the nasty crawl space, they found the area had flooded with water from heavy rains. The crew first pumped the water out of the crawl space and then began to waterproof it with the CrawlDrain drainage system and SafeDri sump pump. If any water seeps inside the crawl space, the CrawlDrain system will catch it and direct it to the sump. From there the water is pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home. The crawl space also was encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth. It also serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. Additional installations included a FreezeGuard on the exterior sump pump discharge line, and the access well that replaced the leaking window. The homeowners can rest easier knowing these reliable solutions have improved the health of the crawl space and their home.

Properly Sealing and Insulating a Crawl Space in Dublin, OH

A new homeowner in Dublin, OH, was eager to move into her house and make it her own. As she did, she detected some problems in the basement like dampness, mustiness and unpleasant odors. She started using the area for storage, and she didn’t want to have to worry about any of her belongings becoming damaged. As she began to search for repair possibilities, the owner found information about Ohio Basement Authority. She wanted to contact us to meet with one of our inspectors and learn more about how we could help her. Inspector Andrew Rothenberg visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the home. Andrew found some evidence of water intrusion in the basement, along with an unhealthy and unsightly crawl space. This area adjacent to the basement was not properly sealed or insulated, and the fiberglass insulation was starting to show signs of mold growth. This could be a big contributor to the odors the owner was worried about. Andrew then recommended the perfect repair solutions. Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then took great care to remove the nuisances from the crawl space. The crawl space was then encapsulated with thick and durable CrawlSeal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is a moisture and vapor barrier that also helps insulate the crawl space. The crawl space was further insulated with ExTremeBloc panels that were placed on the walls. To address the water intrusion, our crew placed the BasementGutter drainage system in the sub-floor. Any seeping water from the walls and floor will be intercepted by BasementGutter and then directed to drain into the existing sump pump system that the homeowner wanted to keep. A dehumidifier also was installed in the basement to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth. The owner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped her create a safer and healthier home.
