If you’re a homeowner in Anderson, SC with a crawl space foundation, water vapor can cause all kinds of problems. Whether you’re worried about wood rot, black mold, or termites, prevention starts with keeping moisture out of your crawl space. In most homes, the best way to do that is a vapor barrier.
A vapor barrier (also known as a moisture barrier) is a thin layer of plastic sheeting installed over the floor (ground) of your crawl space. This sheeting acts as a shield against water vapor from the ground beneath your home, which would otherwise become trapped inside of your crawl space, leading to unsafe levels of moisture.
At Crawlspace Medic®, our vapor barrier services make crawl space maintenance a lot simpler for homeowners. Our inspections make it easy to identify unsafe moisture levels or spot damage to an existing moisture barrier. And if you need a new moisture barrier installed, we’ll make sure that your crawl space gets the protection it needs.
More About Our Vapor Barriers in Anderson
Crawlspace Medic® offers a range of services related to moisture barriers within the Anderson area. These services include:
- Crawl Space Inspections. We recommend a crawl space inspection any time you’re selling or buying a home, and once per year when owning a home. Our inspections include measurements of moisture levels in your crawl space and a visual inspection of your existing moisture barrier. If your moisture barrier needs to be repaired or replaced, we can provide you with a detailed estimate.
- Vapor Barrier Installations. In our area, most moisture barriers use 6 mil polyethylene sheeting. At Crawlspace Medic®, we use 10 mil polyethylene, making our barriers 67% thicker than the competition. We customize our installations for every home, back our work with a leading warranty, and take pains to ensure a seamless installation.
- Crawl Space Encapsulation. If your crawl space suffers from extreme moisture problems, we may recommend an encapsulation system. Unlike a moisture barrier, which only covers the floor and parts of the walls, an encapsulation system will completely seal your crawl space. Typically, it will also use a dehumidifier to keep moisture at a healthy level.
