Colorado Springs Crawl Space Repair

Since your crawl space is located below your home and can be tricky to access, it’s not uncommon for it to be a place you never go, or only when absolutely necessary. But unfortunately, this out-of-site-out-of-mind location plays a significant role in the health of your home. Up to 50 percent of the air you breathe upstairs comes from the crawl space.  

That means if your Colorado Springs crawl space has issues with mold, mildew, or pest droppings, that air is being circulated up and into the areas where your family lives.  

If your crawl space is untreated, Colorado Springs bentonite clay soil is one of the major reasons you’re having issues with moisture control and mold growth. Bentonite clay is highly volatile, absorbing water and rapidly expanding. Adversely, the soil shrinks during dry periods, leaving voids and creating issues with support. Because of the unique soil, it’s an excellent idea to inspect your crawl space if possible. Look for signs of water damage, wet insulation, pests, water pooling, mold, and wood rot.  

If you’re not able to get inside or don’t want to, no worries—Groundworks Colorado Springs can help. Our team has nearly 20 years of experience encapsulating Colorado Springs homes using our durable crawl space vapor barrier, drainage system, and sump pumps. Our solutions keep your crawl space dry and healthy, so you can breathe easy again. Contact Groundworks Colorado Springs to schedule your free, no-obligation inspection.

What Causes Crawl Space Repair Problems?

When it comes to deciding the best crawl space repair for your Colorado Springs home, it is best to ensure the solutions address the root cause of the problem.  

In Colorado Springs, that means the area’s bentonite clay soil and the weather conditions. Although the area receives well below the national average of rainfall annually, when you factor in the snow and snowmelt, the ground around your home can become very saturated.  

Since most crawl spaces are open to the elements, the clay soil absorbs water quickly, leading to condensation, mildew, and mold growth. Plus, the damp, dark environment is perfect for pests to live and thrive.  

Groundworks Colorado Springs inspectors and technicians live and work in your town. They are familiar with the unique conditions and have custom solutions to solve even the most complex problems. From sump pumps, interior drainage, vapor barrier, and dehumidifiers, our innovative products seal your crawl space, encapsulating it and making dry, usable space.

Our Patented Crawl Space Repair Solutions

Regardless of the age of your home, it’s important to understand the importance of a conditioned crawl space. Not only does crawl space encapsulation stop water and improve air quality, but it also provides dry usable space for storage. Below are some of the products your Groundworks Colorado Springs inspector may suggest.

Airtight Vent Covers 

Although it was once believed open vents in a crawl space helped circulate air, we now know they cause more harm than good. Open vents allow humid, untreated air to enter, where it becomes trapped. This humid air leads to condensation, mold growth, and wood rot.  

Groundworks Colorado Springs installs airtight vent covers, ensuring no water vapor can enter and cause problems. As an added bonus, they also stop insects and rodents from entering and making a home beneath your floors.  

High-Quality Vapor Barrier

In addition to a crawl space waterproofing system, a high-quality vapor barrier is one of the best things you can do for your crawl space. It’s not uncommon to have some kind of vapor barrier already, but don’t be fooled, not all vapor barriers are created equal.  

Where builders or hardware stores offer a 6-mil thick liner that rips and tears easily, Groundworks Colorado Springs installs a high-quality 20-mil thick liner that resists tears and is sealed to walls and floors. Without sealing the liner, the builders grade plastic is actually more hindersome than helpful since mold can quickly grow on the organic material. Our vapor barrier is antimicrobial, resisting mold and providing a clean, dry environment.

Reliable & Efficient Sump Pumps

There are a number of sump pumps that claim to work in a crawl space, but the truth is, some simply don’t. It’s important to choose a unit designed for use in a crawl space only and will offer ultimate peace of mind. After all, a crawl space isn’t an area you frequently visit, so your sump pump must be reliable and energy-efficient.  

Groundworks Colorado Springs offers several options for your crawl space. For ultimate protection, our three-pump system involves a primary pump for the daily heavy lifting, a secondary pump that kicks on automatically in case of a rain event to help the primary pump, or if pump one fails, and a third battery-operated pump that starts in the event of a power failure. The best part, you are made aware of all situations without having to step foot inside your crawl space during a storm through our alarm system.
