What Is A Vapor Barrier?
A vapor barrier, also known as a moisture barrier, is a very thick liner made of plastic that is installed on the floor of a crawl space. The plastic is secured on the ground and goes right to the edges of the area. Having this liner covering all the dirt in your crawl space is very advantageous when combatting moisture rising from the ground.
Benefits Of A Vapor Barrier
- Indoor Air Quality - A large amount of air from your crawl space will rise through your floors into your home. When a vapor barrier is installed to protect against moisture, it means you are also protected from breathing in that moisture above ground.
- Protection For Your Foundation - Less moisture means less of a chance that the wooden piers and beams holding the structure of your home will rot and decay.
- Less Unwanted Inhabitants - There are many critters that love a dark, dank area in which to live. Having a vapor barrier discourages rodents, insects and other pests from setting up shop in your crawl space.
- Less Chance Of Mold & Mildew - Where there’s moisture, mold and mildew are sure to follow. Protect your home from damaging mold and mildew with a vapor barrier.
