Basement Wall Vapor Barrier

Having a damp and moldy basement wasn’t what you signed up for when you moved into your home. Unfortunately, this is a common issue in Georgia, and it raises potential threats to your health and safety—but a solution exists. 

Basement vapor barriers, along with other basement waterproofing methods, keep your basement dry. AquaGuard is a local leader in basement waterproofing, and we have an industry-leading vapor barrier under our belts. 

After reading this page, you’ll understand how the WallSeal™ basement wall vapor barrier helps your home and the best course of action to take! 

What is the AquaGuard WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier? 

The AquaGuard WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier is a 12-mil thick premium barrier crafted to stop moisture from infiltrating your basement walls.

Coupling our vapor barrier with other waterproofing solutions, including a sump pump and dehumidifier, ensures a holistic approach to safeguarding your home and boosting your property’s worth.

Early intervention is vital as procrastinating  could lead to structural and health issues. Reach out to a local professional like AquaGuard as soon as you spot these issues. 

Is a Basement Wall Vapor Barrier Necessary? 

Yes, incorporating a vapor barrier is one of the best ways to ensure a thorough basement waterproofing strategy. 

Even if you don’t notice cracks or leaks in the basement walls, moisture can build over time due to the porous nature of concrete.  

Knowing what to look for, and acting as quickly as possible, is the best way to avoid more extensive damage. Address moisture issues promptly by implementing a basement vapor barrier to ensure every section of your basement stays dry.
