Expert Crawl Space Insulation & Encapsulation
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.
