How a Crawlspace Vapor Barrier Helps
If you are one of the many property owners who think a vapor barrier installation is unnecessary, we suggest you think again. The flooring layers and insulation between your crawlspace and the other parts of the room are not enough to prevent moisture buildup. The super-durable crawlspace vapor barrier installed on the inside walls and floors of the area will prevent ground moisture evaporation from entering the area before it has a chance to create structural damage and other related issues.
The crawlspace vapor barrier is also designed to resist air movement and make the crawlspace’s temperature close to the living space. This will help your floor feel warmer during the cold season. Additionally, crawlspace vapor barriers can slow down the cycle of harmful gases like radon, thus reducing radon levels inside your property. Whether you are experiencing dampness in your crawlspace or have been dealing with the uncontrolled temperature inside your home or building, a crawlspace vapor barrier can help bring back the safety and efficiency of your residential or commercial property.

- Perform Complete Property Analysis. During the process, we will identify if you are dealing with water or structural damage before installing the vapor barrier.
- Seal Crawlspace Doors and Vents. We will install airtight doors and vent covers to prevent the cycle of air and moisture from the outside. When trapped inside the crawlspace, it can ruin insulation and encourage mold growth.
- Eliminate Flooding Source. Our next step is to install a crawlspace drain system to remove standing water sources. However, it is still possible for moisture to reach your crawlspace in water vapor.
- Restore the Structure. If you are dealing with mold issues for a long time, you probably have a damaged structure. Before we install vapor barriers, we’ll take time to repair your flooring and stop structural sagging with crawlspace support jacks.
- Encapsulate and Insulate. Crawlspace encapsulation is our expertise. By installing crawlspace liners, we prevent moisture from passing while allowing the procedure to take place without damaging your floors and walls. We also recommend installing crawlspace insulation as part of this process.
- Install a Crawlspace Dehumidifier. A dehumidifier will help keep the area dry and prevent mold growth. At Carolina Crawlspace Pros, we have a line of reliable and affordable crawlspace dehumidifiers that you can choose from.
