Identifying & Repairing Crawl Space Issues Related To An Ineffective Vapor Barrier
Is My Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Working?
Homeowners – Ask Yourselves:
Is your crawl space vapor barrier torn?
Are there puddles on the vapor barrier?
You wouldn’t let your car go more than 12 months without an inspection – so why would you go more than 12 months without your home’s foundation inspected?
Why Isn’t My Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Working?
Not all crawl space vapor barriers are created equal. The crawl space vapor barriers available at most home improvement stores are very thin, like a trash bag, tear easily and don’t fix the real problem: crawl space humidity. You’ll end up spending more money replacing the cheap crawl space vapor barrier – again and again – then it would have cost to have a professional crawl space moisture solution installed.
Crawl space moisture, or humidity, forms when warm air and cool air combine. In the fall, summer and spring months the air in your crawl space is typically cooler than the air outside of your home. When the warmer outside air combines with the cooler air in your crawl space it creates a crawl space moisture or humidity problem. The crawl space moisture then rises through the rest of your home, creating high indoor humidity and other problems.
