Denver Crawlspace Insulation and Encapsulation

Expert Crawl Space Insulation & Encapsulation in Denver, CO

Protect Your Crawl Space with Help from NetZero Insulation

The crawl space underneath your home is the only thing providing a barrier between the house and the ground below. NetZero Insulation provides crawl space encapsulation and insulation in Denver, CO, and the surrounding areas to provide an extra barrier against moisture and added protection to keep cold and hot air from entering your home. Up until 2006, building codes stated that crawl spaces should be vented to the outside to allow for natural airflow. Unfortunately, that did nothing to help insulate homes to conserve energy. This unfinished space allows easy access for air, water, moisture, and even critters to enter your crawl space and infiltrate your house. As home improvement service specialists, our crawl space strengthening solutions will protect your home and add peace of mind in one more area of your property.

Why Should I Insulate My Crawl Space?

Most homeowners don’t even think about the crawl spaces underneath their homes. They’re dark, don’t serve much of a useful purpose for livable space or storage, and they’re difficult to access. Since the crawl space is located so close to the ground, it’s an entryway for many unwanted pollutants that make their way further into your house if it’s not adequately protected. Crawl space encapsulation and insulation can provide a protective barrier from some of the issues your crawl space could be up against. It’s essential to hire a company like ours that is experienced in this area. An inexperienced company could create more problems if encapsulation is done improperly. A significant water issue or combustible appliances in a crawl space need to be addressed before encapsulation can be completed. But when done correctly, our services will protect your home from:

  • Moisture: We apply a moisture barrier to keep hot and humid air from entering the crawl space. If humid air is present in a crawl space, it will turn into moisture that can damage your home when it comes in contact with cooler materials like floorboards.
  • Mold & Mildew: The moisture noted above will lead to mildew and mold growth on surfaces. Mold doesn’t go away on its own, thrives in these conditions, and can lead to harmful health effects if not treated.
  • Foundation Structure Damage: Once moisture, mold, and mildew take hold in a crawl space, they can deteriorate the joists and wood structure of the home leading to weak support and sagging floorboards.

Our Proven Process to Protect Your Crawl Space

Our process is an effective solution to bringing an end to drafty rooms, crawl spaces with moisture issues, and inground pollutants entering your home. We take a three-step approach to address all areas of the crawl space.

  1. Rim Joist Sealing – We seal and insulate all rim joists with a very low VOC two-part cell spray foam. This provides an airtight seal and is covered by an R-19 fiberglass batt insulation. With the spray foam and batt insulation applied, rim joists are now airtight and insulated to a minimum of R-25.
  2. Ground Vapor Barrier – Then, we apply a vapor barrier over the ground to keep moisture and contaminants from rising into the home. This provides effective protection against mold and mildew and improves indoor air quality. The vapor barrier is completely sealed to the perimeter foundation walls and all penetrations coming up through the ground, such as plumbing pipes.
  3. Foundation Wall Insulation – We apply a faced fiberglass blanket insulation to the walls. The product we use includes a trilaminate facing with a nylon webbing laminated to it, just like the vapor barrier. This creates an incredibly durable coating that is nearly impossible to tear and provides fantastic insulation. We also offer the application of three to four inches of two-part closed cell spray foam as an alternative for customers who prefer that method over the blanket.
