Ohio Basement Authority encapsulated the crawl space and installed four SmartJacks, each with a poured concrete base, to raise the floor joists and provide support. It went very well. We knew a large area of the floor wasn't level by about 1 1/4" because a wall wasn't load bearing that probably should have been. After the project had begun, the crew quickly adjusted their plans to pour the concrete and install the SmartJacks before finishing the encapsulation. They finished in two days. The floor feels more solid, and it is noticeably more level. They also did the necessary things to do the job, like re-routing the dryer vent and a duct. The encapsulation is working as expected. The crawl space is now room temperature, and the above room's floor is also room temperature.

Upon moving into their house, homeowners in southeast Columbus, OH, noticed the partial crawl space contained some potential health hazards. There was no insulation on the block walls, and the plastic liner covering the gravel floor was failing.
They wanted to make sure their home would always be a healthy living environment, so they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing one of our TV commercials.
After we removed the debris from the crawl space, we encapsulated this area in bright and durable CleanSpace liner. This liner completely isolates the crawl space and serves as a moisture and vapor barrier. It is also strong enough to crawl on, and helps create an additional functional area that could be used for storage. SilverGlo insulation panels were also installed on the walls.
The homeowners were excited to have these permanent crawl space repair solutions installed so the crawl space, as well as the rest of the house, will be healthier for many years to come!
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 CleanSpace 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 UltraSump sump pump and an IceGuard 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!
After 10 years of living in their house, homeowners in northeast Columbus, OH, recently noticed problems with their partial crawl space. Mice were becoming a nuisance, and floors were cold during the winter.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after researching our services on our company website. Along with many stored items, Inspector Matt Wojciechowski found failing insulation and lining, pests, moisture and duct issues.
Both of these crawl space repair products meet the homeowners' goals of controlling earth moisture and saving energy. They were excited to have these installations completed in their house so that it will be a healthier and more functional area for many more years to come.
