Denver Crawl Space Repair

Dealing with a wet, musty, damp crawl space in your Denver home is zero fun. However, the alternative of letting the problem fester can be far, far worse. Although most homeowners are blissfully unaware of the importance of their crawl space, it plays an important role in the structural integrity of your home.  

Your crawl space connects your home to the foundation, and when it suffers, your safety could be at risk. The soil in Denver is clay loam; this means a dirt crawl space absorbs water easily, releasing moisture into the air causing high humidity, mold growth, and musty odors. Left untreated, these moisture-related problems can lead to wood rot, weakening your home’s support structures and putting your safety at risk.  

Thanks to the stack effect, your crawl space is responsible for up to 50 percent of the air circulating through your home. This means any mold spores, dirt, dust, or pest droppings make their way through your home and into the air you and your family breathe.  

Crawl space encapsulation from Groundworks seals out these potentially toxic elements using a high-quality vapor barrier and addressing water with proper drainage and a sump pump. Schedule your free crawl space inspection to learn more about the innovative solutions offered by Groundwork Denver.

What Causes Crawl Space Repair Problems?

A crawl space is a place most homeowners never go. It’s damp, dirty, and all-around uncomfortable. Although this out of sight, out of mind mentality is understandable, when it comes to your crawl space, it simply can’t be ignored—especially in Denver.  

Crawl space problems result from the area’s clay loam soil type and the weather. Although Denver receives only 15 to 20 inches of rain annually, well below the national average, add snowmelt totals, and the ground surrounding your home can become very wet.  

This moisture is absorbed by the clay soil easily. If you have an untreated crawl space without a waterproofing measure, you are susceptible to water or moisture damage. Inside the crawl space, look for signs of mold and mildew, sagging insulation, and wood rot. Upstairs in the living spaces, you may feel spongey floors under your feet, see uneven floors or notice gaps between the floor and baseboards. These are all signs of a crawl space problem that should be repaired soon. Any damage in your crawl space will eventually extend to the rest of your home. 

To avoid additional costs, schedule a free inspection with Groundworks. Their inspectors work with you to design a custom-fit solution to address your home’s unique needs. With more than 20 years of experience working in the Denver area, their knowledge of the soil and weather conditions makes them an expert on stopping crawl space damage permanently.  

Our Patented Crawl Space Repair Solutions

Groundworks has extensive knowledge and training to spot crawl space problems and present a unique, tailored solution that meets your home’s specific needs. You’ll never worry about paying for unneeded products because our inspectors aren’t salesmen. They respect your time, your money, and your home. Learn more about some of the solutions they may suggest.  

Crawl Space Drain 

The number one reason for damage in a crawl space is water or moisture. An interior drain system installed around the edges of your crawl space helps avoid any standing water due to Denver’s clay loam soil. The drain effectively removes water by directing it to a sump pump, where it is pumped out and away from the home. Removing the water quickly and effectively keeps the crawl space’s moisture content low—discouraging harmful mildew and mold growth.

Vapor Barrier

Although your home may have an existing vapor barrier, it is most likely a builder’s grade 6-mil liner. This liner tears easily and can be more of a problem since it is not sealed. As an organic material, mold can quickly grow on it. Groundworks installs a high-quality, 20-mil thick vapor barrier that resists rips and tears. The liner seals to the walls and floor, locking out moisture, mold, and humidity, improving the air quality throughout the home.  

A quality vapor barrier stops mold growth, helps rebuff pests, and generally makes your home a more comfortable and healthy environment.  

Crawl Space Dehumidifier  

Depending on the amount of moisture your home struggles with, you may or may not need a crawl space dehumidifier. When it comes to a dehumidifier, it’s best to do your research. Often the hardware store units aren’t strong enough to remove the moisture needed in a crawl space. Most big-box units will leave you with a high energy bill and nothing to show for it. 

Groundworks’ crawl space dehumidifier is energy-efficient, self-draining, and can remove up to 100 pints of water per day and filter up to 280 cubic feet per minute. In a crawl space that is infrequently visited, reliability is key to maintaining a healthy crawl space. Trust the experts.

I am a property manager, and foundation issues on homes are the last thing anyone in my position wants to deal with. Fortunately I worked with Mike Kilduff to get my foundation repair taken care of. Mike was incredibly communicative and made sure to check in with me every step of the way. As the work started on my home, I was also fortunate to add Armando to my project team, as the foreman for the job. He and his crew worked hard and did a great job, they even closed some very big gaps in my brickwork, which is never something that can be guaranteed. I fully intend to use Complete Basement Systems / Groundworks for another property, and will certainly refer them to all of my contacts.

Matt Daily is a wonderful, professional, humerous, warm, easy to communicate with individual. All the positive accolades you can imagine are applicable to Matt. If the Complete Basement Systems install goes as well as Matt's presentation, we will be extremely pleased, and entering an additional review afterward. Had we not entered into a Contract for services, we would still have acquired a new life-long friend in Matt Daily.

Carlos Castillo came out to do my bench marking after my job was completed. He was courteous, thorough, answered all the questions I had, and was just the nicest guy! I signed up for the 5 year bench mark to be done to make sure that the movement of my house is corrected, and would be thrilled if he was assigned to do that for me for the future. I highly recommend Carlos!

My sump pump went out and I did not realize it until late on a Friday night. 1/3 of my basement had standing water in it. I called and left a message Friday night around 10:30, knowing that they were closed on Saturday. However, first thing Saturday morning, they called me and were able to be out before 9 am. They fixed the problem and even cleaned up the standing water. They recommended ways to dry up the carpet faster. Ryan was very professional and not pushy at all. I really appreciate this business and will use them in the future for all my basement needs.

I had this company come give me an estimate for raising my back porch cement slabs that had fallen away from my house for years. A very nice guy named Peyton Peeples has been my contact person. He is very knowledgeable in what needed to be done. Every time I contacted him, he was quick to respond to all my concerns and questions.About a month ago, I had the company come and do the work. They were quick and cleaned up wonderfully after done. The guy that came and did the work was named Tyler Moorehead. He walked me through everything his team was going to do and made sure I understood and agreed with him. After the work was done, he went over everything.My porch looks SO much better!! They lifted it, filled in all the cracks, and caulked the whole thing so it looks neat and tidy. I'm not embarrassed anymore to have people see my back porch. THANK YOU!!!

I had 2 crawl spaces in my home encapsulated by Complete Basement Systems. Phil Haggerty was the contact person and did a very thorough inspection of both spaces and found an issue we were not expecting. He did not put any pressure on us to use his business and was very good at answering questions, addressing concerns. He returned calls the same day, if I didn't talk to him when I called. HIs crew- 2 gentlemen both named Jose, were very professional and friendly. They covered the entire path from the basement to the garage with plastic to keep everything neat. They showed up on time, worked the whole day and did a great job. I would recommend using CBS.

I called Groundworks to level my driveway and repair the back patio. They came out and gave me a fair quote told me how they would fix the areas. They were on time and completed the job in just a few hours. Happy Homeowner! they did excellent work I was very impressed. After a couple of months to me it just didn't look right. I wanted them to come out and fix it under warranty. I thought it would be a real hassle to get them to fix it to my likening. So, I called them, and they said no problem be out tomorrow to fix the issues. They arrived on time and an hour later they were finished! Happy Customer! You can't go wrong with Ground Works.

Edgar and Isaiah did a fantastic job leveling the columns supporting my front porch and roof. This was after a crew had tried but failed to complete the job several years earlier. They showed up exactly when they said they would, talked to me to make sure they understood exactly what I wanted done, and then got right to work. They let me know when they were ready to start raising the columns so that I could watch the progress and let them know when the porch was at the level I wanted. Even though they were short-handed, they got the job done quickly. I am very happy with the job they did.Brooks Myers
