Vapor barriers protect dirt crawl spaces against water vapor. This vapor creates moisture in the crawlspace. Moisture can cause a range of problems including musty odors and mold growth. When left unchecked, these problems can cause structural damage and can even pose health risks to you and your family. Vapor barriers protect the crawl space against these potential problems.  Many Alabama homes contain dirt crawl spaces that can greatly benefit from vapor barrier installation.

We take time to properly install the barrier in your crawlspace, maximizing efficiency and the benefits you can expect.

How Do Vapor Barriers Work?

Vapor barriers prevent ground moisture evaporation from entering the crawl space. Combined with a waterproofing system, you can prevent problems before they occur, preventing foul odors, pests, humidity, and moisture-related problems.

The barrier works to reduce the temperature in the crawl space as well as the entry of humidity into the home. It resists the flow of air, turning the crawl space into a semi-cooled area. The temperatures in the crawl space mimic those of your main living areas, producing more warmth in the winter and cooler environments during the summer.

Your family enjoys a plethora of benefits.
