Don't go another day without a moisture-controlled crawl space. Let us install a vapor barrier to protect your home.
How Do Vapor Barriers Work?
Vapor barriers help keep moisture from entering the crawl space through the ground. These typically take the form of plastic sheeting. The sheets are installed along the walls and inner support piers. The seams usually are sealed with double-sided tape to block as much moisture as possible. Effective moisture barriers are continuous and maintain full coverage even as work is taking place. With moisture barriers in place, the amount of water that will migrate from the soil into the structure of your home will be reduced significantly. This can prolong the life of your house as well as prevent mold and mildew, which can become serious health hazards for you and your family.
Foundation Doctor can perform a vapor barrier installation or replacement quickly and efficiently, increasing your peace of mind. Although the process is relatively simple compared to other foundation services, hiring trained professionals to handle it will ensure that nothing is overlooked. It also saves you the trouble of crawling around on your hands and knees under your floorboards.
What Type of Vapor Barrier Is Installed in a Crawl Space?
The recommended thickness of a crawl space vapor barrier ranges from 6 to 20 millimeters, and the higher the number, the thicker the barrier. A 20 millimeter-thick polyethylene vapor barrier is ideal. It is durable, resists tears and punctures, and it is effective at keeping water out.
