Many of us underestimate the importance of a quality moisture barrier, also commonly referred to as a vapor barrier or vapor retarder. The purpose of this moisture barrier is to stop the transmission of moisture vapor from the ground to the air space of the crawl space. This moisture barrier helps reduce the amount of moisture in your crawl space, which clings to your insulation, subfloor, and floor joists, eventually causing mold – and in extreme cases – structural wood rot, leaving your home’s structural integrity in question.
AVS is here to help prevent these issues from occurring in your crawl space or basement. Contact us today to discuss the many options we offer when it comes to moisture barriers. AVS can install anything from the state code 6 mil moisture barrier all the way up to a full 20 mil encapsulation system.
