Crawl Space Vapor Barriers and Encapsulation in Boardman, Youngstown & Canfield
Crawl spaces are located underneath your home, so the chance of getting a water runoff is quite common. Unfortunately, a common design choice for crawl space floors happens to be dirt, so if left alone for too long, they can become a bad breeding ground for mold.
Installing a vapor barrier provides the crawl space with a moisture protection layer to protect the structure from the negative effects of moisture such as mold, floor failure, increased electricity costs, odors, insects, and dust mites. Moisture effects can also cause or worsen conditions such as asthma, hay fever, and or other allergies.
A vapor barrier is a kind of material that’s used to resist moisture from entering through the wall, ceiling, and even the floor. Essentially, a vapor barrier’s job is to create a layer of protection between your home and the dirty crawl space beneath it. It’s also useful as an energy-saving method so you can lower your heating bills while ensuring that your home feels more comfortable.
