Why Choose a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier?

A vapor barrier is the crawl space solution you’ve been looking for.

A vapor barrier, also known as a moisture barrier, is a crawl space solution that can help pull your crawl space out of the damp, moldy and mildewy situation it’s in, which will help you to save money on other costs like poor air quality, mold and mildew, structural damage, reducing energy costs, keeping pests out and adding more storage space along the way.

A vapor barrier is what we would consider the bare minimum protection you should consider when it comes to crawl space solutions. A vapor barrier is a plastic liner that covers the dirt floor of your crawl space. It will work to keep moisture and pets from seeping into your home.

Mold, mildew and bacteria are often found in crawl spaces and they significantly impact the quality of air and make breathing conditions poor. This may not seem like a problem, especially if you’re assuming that this poor air quality remains in the basement or crawl space. However, this is not the case as air rises and seeps into the rest of your home. 

The contaminants and spores found in mold and mildew are harmful to both people and pets and put all those who live in your home at risk of mold-related illnesses, such as asthma. Moreover, your HVAC system will work harder as some of your warm or cold air seeps through the crawl space.

Installing a vapor barrier is a great counter for your crawl space issues.

The correct amount of barrier will need to be obtained by calculating the square footage of your crawl space. The crawl space should be free of debris before you begin and the barrier should be thick and heavy enough that it doesn’t roll up on itself. The results are not one-and-done, as a new vapor barrier needs to be installed every 5-10 years. You could do it on your own, or you could call our team of professionals at Crawl Space Encapsulation Franklin, Tennessee.
