Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation
Quality Foundation Repair understands that water can enter your crawl space in three different ways. It can enter through the earth around your home, through a crack, or through your crawl space vents. No matter how the moisture may get in, if your crawl space in Council Bluffs, Omaha, Sioux City, or in surrounding areas isn’t protected, your home is in trouble. We offer crawl space encapsulation systems as well as crawl space vapor barriers for protecting the area underneath your home from moisture.
What are Crawl Space Vapor Barries?
The dirt in crawl spaces is typically damp, and when the correct measures are not taken, humidity can build and harm the structure of your home. Crawl space vapor barriers keep the air in your crawl space dry by covering the dirt floor with a foil or plastic material. This material stops moisture from evaporating into the air and harming the structure of your home. Our crawl space vapor barriers are built to be mold, puncture, and tear resistant.
