Why You Need a Moisture Barrier
Many homeowners dread going into their crawl space because it’s dirty, wet, full of trash from construction, and can be home to pests. All of these things present possible danger to your home. A moisture barrier helps keep out water so that your crawl space is dry and free from gross intrusions.
Benefits to Installing A Crawl Space Moisture Barrier
By installing a moisture barrier in your home, you can:
- Help your crawl space stay dry
- Prevent moisture from invading your home
- Protect your wooden crawl space supports from wood rot
- Keep out insects and other pests that prefer damp conditions
- Minimize flood damage to your crawl space
Difference Between Moisture Barrier and Vapor Barrier
The main function of a moisture barrier is to keep liquid water from entering the enclosure. The moisture barrier ensures that there is a structured way to direct water to the exterior. By doing so, the moisture barrier will help keep your crawl space dry and clean.
Similar to a moisture barrier, a vapor barrier is a material designed to prevent moisture from damaging the fabric of a building. Before determining what type of barrier to install, it’s important to first decide what element you are trying to control. Our team has the tools to diagnose the cause of your crawl space moisture and determine the best solution for your home and provide vapor barrier systems that can help protect your home from foundation problems.
