The Importance of Having a Professional Install A Vapor Barrier

Proper installation of a vapor barrier is crucial in protecting your home from damage caused by excessive moisture in your crawlspace. The primary function of a vapor barrier is to prevent moisture levels from rising, which can lead to issues like mold, wood rot, and poor air quality.

In North Carolina, new building codes require total vapor barrier coverage to emphasize the importance of this component. However, it’s important to understand that installing a vapor barrier doesn’t eliminate all risks associated with moisture. To ensure your home is fully protected, it’s recommended to seek professional help for vapor barrier installation.

Vapor Barrier Benefits

Controls Moisture Levels

Water can seep into your home through the soil in your crawlspace’s dirt floor. The presence of this water increase the moisture and humidity levels in the air and in the structures in the crawlspace. Vapor barriers help to keep the crawlspace dry by preventing moisture from coming up through the floor.

Reduces Mold Conducive Environment

Mold grows best in dark and damp environments which means a crawlspace is a prime location for mold to develop and thrive. Reducing moisture levels by installing a vapor barrier decreases the risk of mold growth and damage.

Preserves the Systems under your House

Moisture can corrode metals, rot wood, and deteriorate insulation. A vapor barrier helps to control and reduce the moisture level in the crawlspace which protects the major (plumbing, HVAC, electrical, etc.) systems that are found there.

Protects your Homes Structure

Moisture in the crawlspace can lead to wood rot and deterioration which compromises the structural integrity of your home and ultimately results in a very hefty repair bill. Vapor barriers help to keep water and moisture out and keeps your home structurally sound.

Our Vapor Barrier Installation Process

Vapor barrier installation is comprised of a simple three step process that includes: clearing the crawlspace, installing the polyethylene liner and taping the seams of the liner. A vapor barrier that is installed incorrectly can be as bad as not having a vapor barrier at all.

Clear Out Debris

The technicians will begin by removing all the debris from the crawlspace which includes anything that is not attached to the home.

Install the Liner

The Elite Moisture Solutions team will install a reinforced 9-mil, 15-mil or 36-mil polyethylene liner that will cover the entire crawlspace floor.

Seal Any Gaps

Once the liner has been installed the technicians will tape all the seams which will act as a seal between the various pieces of liner and will ensure total coverage.

The company installed a vapor guard and dehumidifier in my crawl space under the house. They pulled some junk I had under the house and coordinated the pick-up for me. They also tore down the old insulation which was falling down and had new insulation installed. They did an excellent job and were very professional. I highly recommend them to anyone.
