Crawl Space and Basement Waterproofing in the Denver-Boulder-Greeley Area

No Denver-Boulder-Greeley area homeowner wants to come home to find their basement or crawl space has flooded. However, these floods are also largely preventable. Leaks are a glaring problem sign that many homeowners tend to overlook. However, even the smallest leaks can expand and cause massive flooding damage to your home. If you spot your basement or crawl space leaking, then you should call the experts at Complete Basement Systems to implement repairs as soon as possible.

Leaks can also cause other moisture-related issues as well. Mold, mildew, efflorescence, and pest infestations are just some of the problems that can arise from a constantly flooding basement or crawl space in your Denver, Boulder, or Greeley home. Complete Basement Systems can install our interior drainage system all around the interior of your basement or crawl space to ensure that these leaks will never cause moisture damage again.

The drainage system is specifically installed around the wall and floor joint of your basement or in the crawl space floor along the walls, where water is most likely to gather. The system will collect and redirect the water to the sump pump, which, in turn, will pump this water away from your Denver-Boulder-Greeley area home. Our experts will also encapsulate the crawl space to ensure that no moisture issues can infiltrate this space, either.

Denver, Boulder, And Greeley, CO Foundation Repair

crew fixing foundation

Your foundation’s sole function is to keep your home’s infrastructure standing tall and upright against anything. It keeps your home elevated from the soil around it and braces it against any harsh weather you might face in the Denver-Boulder-Greeley region. Though it is quite tough, that does not make it invulnerable to moisture damage. It is possible that the support soil underneath has shifted or washed out, leaving your foundation to shift, settle into the remaining soil, or crack altogether. This damage can also spread out to other structures in or around your home as well.

This is why it is important to have the foundation of your Denver-Boulder-Greeley home inspected yearly. The foundation experts at Complete Basement Systems will be able to assess the extent of the damage and provide free quotes on all our repair systems accordingly. For instance, if your foundation has settled, we might then recommend one of our pier systems to help stabilize and potentially lift it back to its original height again. We can also install our wall anchor system, which will help to brace your foundation walls against any future moisture damage. You can trust the foundation experts to install these repair solutions underneath the foundation in a way that will not affect your other pipes or systems as well.

Concrete Lifting and Stabilizing in Denver-Boulder-Greeley

Concrete is not as invulnerable to damage as many Denver-Boulder-Greeley region homeowners might come to believe. Much like the foundation, it is also susceptible to moisture damage that can cause the individual slabs to shift, settle, or crack. The fact that your home will have plenty of different concrete structures surrounding it (including your sidewalk, driveway, or backyard patio) means you also will have to keep a close eye on multiple places at once for damage. This can be quite a hassle, so it is best to leave these inspections to the experts at Complete Basement Systems instead.

Our experts will be able to pinpoint the origin of all this concrete damage as well. One of the biggest issues with concrete damage is how quickly it can spread. Indeed, this damage may easily extend down to the foundation and impact the rest of your Denver-Boulder-Greeley area home’s infrastructure. The reverse may also be true, in that an already damaged foundation can spread that damage out to your home’s concrete.

Complete Basement Systems then can offer your Denver-Boulder-Greeley home the perfect concrete stabilizing solution: our SettleStop PolyRenewal™ injection foam. It will also fill in any cracks or gaps in the supporting soil below, lifting and bolstering these slabs against any moisture damage in the future.

About Waterproofing, Foundation Repair & Crawl Spaces in the Denver-Boulder-Greeley Metro Area

Complete Basement Systems’ interior drainage system is one of the most powerful drainage solutions available on the market. Any moisture that might try to seep into your basement or crawl space will be collected by this system. It is installed along the wall-floor joint of your basement and in the crawl space floor close to the walls. The water collected by this system will flow to the sump pump, which is essentially the heart of this entire drainage system.

Once enough water has entered its system, it then will activate on its own to pump this water to either a storm drain or to a drainage trench far from your home. This pump can drain away thousands of gallons of water at once. Our experts also can install an optional back-up battery on our sump pump to ensure that it will not stop pumping water out of your home even if a large storm should shut your power down. Indeed, all this can be quite helpful since Denver, Boulder, and Greeley homes will deal with heavy snowfall in the winter and light rainfall in the warmer months. All that moisture will likely soak into the soil around your home and try to push into the basement or crawl space. The interior drainage system can thus protect your home against any moisture damage.

You may also appreciate its complex alarm system as well. Typically, this alarm will go off when it turns on as well as when its backup battery is running low.

If your Denver-Boulder-Greeley region crawl space is facing constant threat of moisture damage, then Complete Basement Systems crawl space encapsulation process can help! This process involves installing four key components: waterproofing with an interior drainage system and a sump pump, vapor barrier, vent covers, and a dehumidifier. Each step of the process will tackle different moisture issues throughout the crawl space. The sump pump will easily take care of any larger floods that might try to infiltrate this space and redirect its flow away from your home. After the crawl space is cleared, our experts then can get to work setting up the vapor barrier. This barrier will encompass the entire crawl space and prevent moisture and mold and mildew spores from infiltrating the crawl space, as well as make it more difficult for pests to get inside again.

Once that is done, our experts will scan for any open vents around the crawl space and seal them off. Contractors once thought leaving these open vents around the crawl space was necessary, as they hoped it would continuously circulate dry air around this space and prevent moisture issues. Of course, these open vents only invited more moisture issues inside the crawl space than it aimed to prevent in the first place. This is why our experts will use our vent covers to completely seal the crawl space off. These covers are made of sturdy plastic that will not blow off or bow no matter the weather outside.

To keep the air inside your crawl space from going stale, however, our experts will first install a dehumidifier before sealing away this space for good. If any humidity somehow manages to get inside, then the dehumidifier will filter that out and circulate fresh air around your crawl space for years to come.

The foundation is perhaps the most important structure in your home. It is built to withstand a lot of pressure coming at it from all angles, after all. Despite this, the foundation is not indestructible, either. It is just as susceptible to moisture damage as anything else around your home. The only difference is when moisture damage affects your foundation, the rest of your home’s infrastructure will start to show signs of damage as well. Your floor might bounce or sag in places. You might notice your doors or windows are harder to open or close. Even your walls might start to tilt or sway, which can be a sign that your home is close to collapsing.

Moisture damage can take a wide variety of different forms. One of the most common moisture issues your foundation will face is hydrostatic pressure. This occurs when the soil around your home absorbs more water that it is realistically able to hold. It does not help that the Denver-Boulder-Greeley region can have either clay loam soil (which water will drain out a lot slower compared to other soil types) or sand loam (which washes out more easily than other soil types). All that water can press up against the foundation and cause it to shift or crack apart.

The soil under your foundation may also be prone to washing out, too. Without this crucial support, your foundation will settle deeper into the remaining soil or even crack into pieces. This washing out is a direct consequence of the clay bowl effect. Contractors will dig a hole to place your foundation and either a basement or crawl space in and then backfill the excess space around this structure with the now looser soil that will wash out.

Every astute homeowner will want to look into all the foundation repair options that Complete Basement Systems can offer as a matter of due diligence. You will want to know exactly how these solutions can protect your home from moisture damage, after all. When you come across our pier systems, however, it can be understandably confusing to figure out the difference between the two. Helical piers and push piers seem to perform the same repairs, so why the need for two distinct types?

First, let’s take a look into how these pier systems can lift and stabilize your Denver-Boulder-Greeley region home. Each of the galvanized steel piers we install underneath your foundation will extend down to the deeper, more compact layers of soil below. This soil is far less likely to wash out or be affected by too much moisture. The piers will essentially tap into this inherent strength to support and stabilize your foundation and your entire home without any issues. Additionally, these piers also can close any cracks that have surfaced along your foundation as well.

The main difference between the two really lies in how they are installed under your home. Helical piers will have a spiral-like attachment on the end that is easier for our experts to hydraulically drill into the compact soils below. Push piers, on the other hand, are manually pushed into the soil instead. This makes push piers more suited for homes with looser soils as opposed to any homes that may have clay loam. Whichever pier systems our experts go with, your home foundation will stay perfectly lifted from the soil around it and stabilized against any future moisture damage.

Uneven concrete is fairly simple for any Denver-Boulder-Greeley region homeowner to spot. Any settled or cracked slabs around your home will obviously mean that it has become damaged. Settled slabs in particular can pose a dangerous tripping hazard for you and your family. Unfortunately, this is not the worst damage that can occur from an uneven concrete slab. Concrete damage can spread down to the foundation if you continue to neglect repairing it, so it is important that you call the concrete experts to implement our quick repairs as soon as possible.

Containing the damage before it reaches this point is critical. Unfortunately, not all homeowners will have the luxury of dealing with all the damage that might surround their home. Indeed, this damage might even be so subtle that you will not even notice it until it has reached your foundation and impacted the rest of your home. This can then lead to even more costly repairs in the future, so it is best to contact the concrete experts at Complete Basement Systems as soon as you are able to. Setting up an appointment with our experts is easy. We can visit your home any time to first inspect and then repair any damage that you might want fixed.

In the meantime, there is one way to be able to tell if your concrete slabs are truly uneven or not. You will have to wait for it to rain or for the snow to melt around your property first, though. Typically, puddles will form on both even and uneven concrete. These puddles should eventually slope off to a nearby drain and leave your concrete dry within a few days. If this moisture lingers, then it is certain your concrete has become uneven.

Complete Basement Systems’ SettleStop PolyRenewal™ injection foam is one of the most thorough concrete repair solutions that we have to offer. Not only can it repair the concrete slabs around your home, but also it can bolster the support soil underneath as well! In this way, our SettleStop PolyRenewal™ injection foam can target all areas of your concrete and stabilize them so that future moisture issues will not affect them in any way.

Another benefit to this foam is its quiet and quick installation. Many other concrete lifting or stabilizing repairs will require loud or messy construction, all of which can take up to days or weeks to cure depending on the initial damage around your home. SettleStop PolyRenewal™ only takes 15 minutes to fully cure, so you can walk along your concrete sidewalk, backyard patio, or driveway the very same day we implement these repairs! These older solutions also end up being extremely heavy at around 120 pounds per cubic foot of application and may even drag your uneven concrete down again over time. Complete Basement Systems’ SettleStop PolyRenewal™ weighs only four pounds per cubic foot, which guarantees that it will not settle back into the soil.

SettleStop PolyRenewal™ injection foam can fill in any cracks that have formed along the concrete as well as any gaps that have formed from soil washout. You then might worry that the soil of your Denver-Boulder-Greeley region home might have harmful chemicals mixed into it. SettleStop PolyRenewal™ injection foam is made up of eco-friendly materials that will not negatively impact your landscaping or your lawn. This foam merely aims to lift and stabilize your concrete slabs and the soil underneath. Trust our experts to precisely inject the right amount of foam to keep your concrete structures lifted and stabilized for years to come!
