A vapor barrier is a material used for damp proofing, that resists diffusion of moisture to prevent condensation and or buildup of moisture.
Moisture can lead to mold and mildew which may lead to a lack of structural integrity or hinder a home's air quality.
Vapor barriers are also used to help keep your crawl space looking clean and neat!
At EcoMaster LLC, we install a specially designed vapor barrier that is sealed to the crawlspace floor, the walls of the foundation, and piers during crawl space encapsulation. If the finished product will be a vented crawlspace that is not sealed, a vapor barrier is simply applied to your crawlspace floor.
