The right crawl space contractor for Columbus, Westerville, Dublin, Grove City area homeowners
Many central Ohio homeowners are perplexed as to why their sheet plastic covered dirt crawl space smells nasty, and contents there get ruined.
The answer is many Columbus area builders simply use the cheapest (yes cheapest not inexpensive) plastic sheeting they can find. It is not meant to be a vapor barrier and quickly decays and tears. Plus that sheet isn’t secured to the walls, still allowing destructive moisture into the crawl space. This sets up the conditions for odors, mold and mildews to thrive.

Quick Expert Crawl Space Repair
Once personal items and debris are removed, the liner is installed from the top of the wall down to cover the entire wall. Then the liner is spread across the floor and sealed to the wall isolating your crawl space from the elements, and creating a moisture barrier strong enough to walk or crawl on. Once the liner is installed, spray foam insulation is installed above the wall between the floor joists aiding in the process of isolating the crawl space from moisture, and cold air.
