Crawl Space Vapor Barriers and Encapsulation in Denver, CO

If your crawlspace is suffering from leaning or bent piers and causing the floor above to become sloped or uneven, it may be in need of support from crawlspace piers. These piers work like other types of foundation piers, lifting the crawlspace to its original position and supporting the weight of the foundation. Our crawlspace piers, from premiere manufacturer ECP (Earth Contact Products) are designed to stabilize the foundation for years to come, preventing further problems from arising.

Crawlspace moisture problems can be solved by installing a vapor barrier. Vapor barriers are damp proofing materials, usually made from plastic or foil sheeting that are installed all along the walls, and sometimes the floor and ceiling of the crawlspace to seal out moisture. The barrier works to resist moisture diffusion, keeping the water from seeping through the porous concrete of the foundation walls and from leaking through cracks in the surface of the concrete.
