Grand Junction Crawl Space Repair

ake a walk around your home; now, look down at the foundation. If you notice open vents or a loose crawl space door, you most likely have a moisture problem. Open vents or a crawl space that is not sealed creates high humidity problems and allows rodents and pests to enter freely. If you notice a musty smell inside your home, it’s most likely coming from the crawl space.   

At one time, it was believed that Grand Junction crawl spaces should have open vents to allow air to circulate throughout the space. We now know open vents cause more problems by allowing moisture in and creating the perfect breeding ground for mold and pests. Pests love the dark, damp environment, and rodents can create a mess by chewing insulation and wires, not to mention their droppings causing health problems.

What Causes Crawl Space Repair Problems?

Your Grand Junction crawl space is most likely out of sight, out of mind. However, even though you aren’t spending a lot of time there, the air inside the crawl space is finding its way into your living space, thanks to the stack effect.  

The stack effect explains how air is pulled from the lowest level of your home (the crawlspace) up through your living spaces until it escapes out the roof, and new air is sucked from the outside to replace it. Even with the best-insulated roof, 50 percent of the air you breathe comes from the crawl space.   

As you can see, a clean crawl space is more important than your home’s structural integrity alone; it’s also integral to your family’s health.   

Although the Grand Junction area receives significantly less rain or snow than the national average, moisture in the air is still problematic for crawl spaces. High humidity and condensation can cause mold, mildew, and can even lead to wood rot. Dark, humid areas attract insects that leave droppings. If your crawl space is not sealed, your family ends up breathing in mold and pest droppings.  

Groundworks Grand Junction has been working with homeowners like you since 2005 and understands the need to address crawl space moisture problems quickly. By insulating and waterproofing the crawl space, water and pests are sealed out, creating a cleaner, healthier home.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is the term used when your untreated crawl space is converted into a clean, dry, usable space. Although encapsulation usually involves a vapor barrier, any additional pieces are specific to your home’s needs. In many cases, a crawl space drain and a sump pump are installed to pump groundwater out and away. A crawl space dehumidifier may also be needed to ensure that humidity levels are reasonable.   

Sealing the crawl space through the encapsulation system allows the space to become part of the envelope of the home. Meaning any air that passes through is clean and conditioned. Creating an all-around healthier living environment and protecting your home’s structural integrity from any damaging wood rot.

Crawl Space Vent Covers

Although many crawl spaces have vents, as we discussed, they cause more problems than good. Vent covers seal troublesome vents by using a 20-mil-thick vapor barrier that fits perfectly over the opening. In addition to preventing moisture and air from escaping, they also offer a measure of insulation, keeping energy bills down and creating a more comfortable environment.   


Crawl Space Insulation

You may be familiar with the pink insulation used in crawl spaces by builders, this type of insulation invites problems into your crawl space. Pink insulation absorbs moisture easily, growing heavy and sagging or falling to the ground. This damp organic material is perfect for mold and mildew growth, causing a musty smell throughout your home.   

Groundworks Grand Junction offers a rigid foam board insulation called ExtremeBloc™. With an incredible R-value of 11, it helps create an energy-efficient network in your crawl space that then expands into the rest of your home. You’ll experience lower electric bills, fewer water problems, and better indoor air quality.
