The most common and serious problems that homeowners should look for are:
Crawl Space Problems & How They Impact Homes
In Colorado, crawl space problems are more common due to our higher humidity index. This is not only a major concern for your family but your home's structural integrity as well. In the Colorado area we also have heavy rainfall and snow thawing seasons that generate a lot of water. If left unprotected your crawl space can deteriorate over time.
Wet Crawl Spaces
Crawl spaces that have become consistently wet or flooded are a result of poor water mitigation and/or encapsulation. Without a drain to direct water away from this area, or a barrier to keep soggy soil or damp air contained, crawl spaces become rotted and cause other problems.
With sagging floors it's an indication that the support beams within the crawl space have deteriorated. In most cases this will be either wooden or concrete joists that have become rotted or broken from mold, mildew, water, and humidity. This is an after-effect of a poorly sealed crawl space without protection.
Humidity and Odor
Any type of odor coming from your crawl space means there's bacteria and mold growth underneath your home. It's caused by damp environments and humidity with poor ventilation. No protection also leaves this area unprotected from water which results in mold growth.
Systems We Use To Fix Crawl Spaces
Each system we use provides a unique repair for your specific crawl space problem. Depending on the severity of each issue or core problems that must be addressed, we may recommend additional products after the inspection. All work is performed after your authorization and the written estimate we provide to the homeowner before beginning any project.
- Crawl Space Encapsulation System - This system is the usage of our patented vapor barriers along with sealing applications designed to completely seal off the crawl space from external soil, moisture, water, and pests. This also contains humidity to an extent but is much more effective with a dehumidifier.
- Crawl Space Sump Pumps - The exact same compact design as the basement version, our sump pump mitigates water by pumping it through the main sewer lines. All water is gathered and then redirected so that your crawl space is protected from any amount of water- and in sever cases flooding.

If you crawl space has deteriorated wooden or concrete support beams our stabilizers will hold the weight of your home- made with durable steel for permanent structural integrity.
