What Is Vapor Barrier Installation?

Vapor barrier installation is our process for applying a puncture and tear-resistant polyethylene protective barrier on the floor of your crawl space. It creates a moisture-resistant shield that reduces moisture buildup and protects against potential damage.

What are the Benefits of
Installing a Vapor Barrier?

Installing a vapor barrier in your crawl space offers numerous benefits, making it a worthwhile investment. At The Basement Doctor, we specialize in the installation of durable vapor barriers that provide advantages such as:

  1. Stair Step Cracks

    Improved Indoor Air Quality

    Did you know up to 40% of indoor air comes from your crawl space? A vapor barrier can block harmful gasses such as radon, reduce humidity levels, and prevent mold and mildew growth, promoting healthier indoor air quality.

  2. Tipping or Bowing

    Energy Savings

    Vapor barrier installation can improve energy efficiency in your home by minimizing moisture infiltration and reducing humidity in your crawl space.

    They were quick, courteous, and professional every step of the way. If there were any concerns about any of the work, they explained everything out, or fixed any issue that may have come up. Their work is high quality, and while the job is expensive, they work with you to make everything as easy as possible. Definitely recommend!
