Denver, CO

While Denver receives less rainfall than the national average, water and moisture are still problems that plague area homes. Peak Structural has a full lineup of waterproofing products to solve even the trickiest of problems.

Expert Denver Waterproofing for Nearly Two Decades

Many Denver homeowners understand how devastating the feeling can be when it comes to water in your basement or crawl space. But just because the problem is common doesn’t make it healthy. Typically, water leaks in Colorado result from two main issues, the area’s climate and the soil. 

Although Denver receives only about 14 inches of rain annually, that’s well below the national average of about 30 inches. However, water and moisture still remain a problem because of Denver’s clay-based soil. Clay soil is problematic because not only does it absorb and hold water easily, but it also expands rapidly when wet. This expansion puts pressure on basement and crawl space walls causing them to crack and bow inward. This type of wall cracking presents the perfect opportunity for water to enter.

Even the smallest amount of water can cause problems. If your Denver home has a basement, look for mold, mildew, and damp concrete signs, especially where the wall and the floor meet. 

In the crawl space, homeowners in Denver experience musty odors, mold on beams and floor joists, loose or missing vapor liners, and wet hanging insulation. Upstairs you might notice sagging or uneven floors

Regardless of the problem signs, if you’re experiencing any water intrusion, you should call the experts at Peak Structural. For basements, our team has a full lineup of waterproofing products available to solve even the trickiest problems. By installing an interior drainage system and a reliable sump pump, your basement can become a dry usable space again. 

Crawl spaces typically require encapsulation, although your inspector will know best after putting eyes on your home. Encapsulation involves sealing off your crawl space from the outside using a thick, tear-resistant liner sealed to walls and beams to create a dry area. Our solutions are customizable, so you may or may not require a sump pump, dehumidifier, or crawl space drainage. Your inspector will work with you to design the best system for your home. 

Peak Structural: Local Denver Foundation Repair

Helical Pier on Concrete

Your home is most likely your most important asset, and it’s the foundation that keeps the structure stable and upright. When your home’s structural integrity is at risk, you’re affecting your resale value and putting your family in danger. 

Many of Denver’s foundation problems are caused by the area’s clay soil. Clay soil is highly volatile and shrinks and compacts during Denver’s many seasons of dry, drought-like conditions. When the soil near your home shrinks, voids are created, and your incredibly heavy home sinks. 

Unfortunately, your home rarely sinks evenly; this is called differential settlement. As a Denver homeowner, you will experience cracked brickwork, nail pops, a tilting chimney, or sticking doors and windows. 

Although addressing all foundation problems quickly is beneficial, calling the experts as soon as you suspect a sinking foundation is arguably the most beneficial. Our local experts at Peak Structural will pinpoint the root cause of your problem and provide solutions to permanently stabilize your home and put it back on solid ground. From helical and push piers to wall anchors and carbon fiber straps, our inspectors can suggest the proper solution to meet your goals.

Peak Structural Concrete Lifting Solutions Made Simple

Look around your home, are sinking and uneven concrete slabs making your home look unsightly? If so, it’s not only the curb appeal that’s suffering; it’s also your home’s property value and the health and safety of your family. Uneven concrete is a serious tripping hazard, especially for those with mobility issues. 

The clay soil in the Denver area is once again to blame for the failing slabs. As the clay shrinks, the slabs crack and sink, leaving dangerous and concerning slabs in its path. 

While there is nothing you can do about the soil, repairing the slabs using a solution that won’t wash out or add additional pressure to the slab is your best bet. PolyRenewal™ restores uneven concrete slabs to their original position. This cutting-edge product has revolutionized the concrete lifting industry. With a cure time of about 15minutes, it’s environmentally friendly, waterproof, and lightweight but incredibly strong. Injected under the slab by our local technicians, your sinking slabs will look new and be ready for normal use by the time our team is cleaned up.
