Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

Shield your home from Mold and Mildew with a Vapor Barrier!

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

Most people are familiar with moisture issues due to rainwater coming down through faulty roofs, cracks in foundation walls and floors. But it can be easy to forget that homes built above crawl spaces can suffer a different type of moisture issue: water vapor. Water vapor can rise from the exposed soil and become trapped in the enclosed space beneath the home.

Moisture is the #1 enemy of a home’s structure. Joists, sills, posts, and beams are all made of wood, an organic material. Over time, the wood will rot when it comes in contact with water and will be unable to dry in the confined crawl space. Then, there is the possibility of pests invading your crawl space. Many household pests are attracted to water, such as carpenter ants, termites, rats, snakes, and even skunks and armadillos!

Not only can it attack the structural supports and make the house unsafe, but it can also wear away at your health slowly, without apparent cause. An unfinished crawl space is an unpleasant place to be, so it could be months before an issue is noticed and rectified. This allows mold and mildew to grow undetected, potentially causing symptoms such as asthma and severe allergies.

You may be thinking, that’s too many issues to deal with at once, and you’d be right. But thankfully, there is a product that can protect your crawl space from all of it.

A vapor barrier is a thick sheet of polyethylene liner, akin to pool linings, meant to prevent leakages. This barrier will be measured and cut to fully cover the space beneath your home, leaving no trace of dirt or foundation uncovered. The thick plastic is inhospitable to pests, and water can’t penetrate and cause issues in the crawl space, leaving your home protected!
