What is a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier?

A crawl space vapor barrier is a plastic layer that covers crawl space walls and bare soil floors. 

It controls excess moisture, blocks water vapor, and prevents dampness, mold, wood rot, and pest infestations. 

AquaGuard utilizes a strategic approach with CrawlSeal™. This durable, multi-layered sheet effectively defends your home against moisture-related damage. It ensures your crawl space remains secure, improving your home’s overall health

Signs You Need a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation

It’s important to recognize when a crawl space vapor barrier is necessary. Ignoring these signs leads to costly repairs in the future. Watch for these signs: 

These symptoms indicate excessive moisture, drainage issues, and other crawl space damage. Being proactive is crucial for maintaining a safe and healthy home. Contact AquaGuard if you experience any of these problems. With nearly 30 years of experience in the greater Atlanta area, we have seen and repaired it all.

Is Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation Necessary? 

Yes—a vapor barrier is necessary if your crawl space shows signs of water or humidity. Without this barrier, moisture will continue to overwhelm your crawl space, increasing damage and repair costs

Prompt action with AquaGuard’s encapsulation solutions safeguards your home and is a vital part of our holistic approach to maintaining home health. We do not recommend DIY installations, as vapor barriers from general stores are often too thin and fail to adequately protect crawl spaces. 

This insufficiency causes further damage and expensive repairs later. It’s safer to rely on professionals with the necessary tools, training, and safety gear to get the job done right. 

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier? 

Installing a vapor barrier to combat moisture offers several benefits: 

  • Improved Air Quality: Our CrawlSeal™ barrier blocks moisture, reducing musty smells and enhancing your home’s air quality. 
  • Enhanced Structural Stability: A dry crawl space is crucial for maintaining your home’s structural integrity. 
  • Energy Efficiency: A dry crawl space improves insulation, enhancing energy efficiency and lowering utility bills. 
  • Pest Deterrence: Moist crawl spaces are attractive to pests like termites. A vapor barrier, combined with other moisture control methods, deters pests and prevents their entry. 

Our CrawlSeal™ liner is designed to resist punctures and includes antimicrobial properties. Together with our encapsulation process, it ensures your crawl space remains clean, dry, and well-ventilated.

    Crawl Space Vapor Barrier FAQs

    Yes, by reducing air leaks and keeping insulation dry, vapor barriers improve the thermal performance of a building, leading to better energy efficiency.

    Without a vapor barrier, buildings are susceptible to moisture damage, which can compromise structural integrity, reduce insulation effectiveness, and promote mold and mildew growth.

    Damaged vapor barriers can compromise their effectiveness, allowing moisture to penetrate and potentially leading to mold and structural damage. It’s important to repair or replace damaged sections promptly.
