Vapor Barrier Installation Services
All Pro Restoration has the experience and skill needed for proper vapor barrier installation. Proper installation of a vapor barrier is an effective way to keep moisture out of your crawl space, as it actually acts as a moisture barrier. Excess moisture can result in musty odors, mold growth, mold spores, wood rot or wood damage, and more. Keeping moisture out of this area can help to improve your home’s energy efficiency, keeping energy costs down and improving overall indoor air quality.
It is very important that you choose an experienced crawl space vapor barrier installation service to be your installer. Having a bad installation can cause even more problems than the initial moisture problem you had, and could further cause structural damage over time.
Problems Resulting from a Bad Vapor Barrier Installation
A bad installation can occur when crawl space vapor barrier installers do not take precise measurements or do not use specialized tools that are needed for proper installation. Even the smallest error by crawl space vapor barrier contractors can make the vapor barrier ineffective.
Crawl space vapor barriers can become ineffective for a number of reasons. One reason is that they are too thin, resulting in ineffective protection. A 10-millimeter-thick crawl space vapor barrier is the absolute minimum for a professional-grade barrier, and ideally, the barrier should be at least 20 millimeters thick to provide the protection you are looking for.
A second problem involves the use of poor material. Cheaper plastic, stainless steel, and aluminum are not strong enough for use below your home and can be easily damaged by moisture. Quality vapor barriers use polyethylene plastic; if thick enough, barriers with this material can provide the protection from moisture your home needs.
A third problem is the presence of pests. Again, thin barriers made of material such as aluminum, stainless steel, or cheap plastic can be damaged easily by pests. They are drawn to crawl spaces with poor vapor barriers because they can escape bad weather and hungry predators in these places, and some will even stay for breeding, feeding, and rest. If a thick, polyethylene plastic vapor barrier is installed by an experienced installation service, chances are high that the pests will not be able to break through it and cause problems for you and your home.
With the right installers, you can have peace of mind knowing you will not have to deal with these issues.
