So you have finally decided to bite the bullet and encapsulate your crawlspace. Trust us when we say, you will not regret it. It’s a smart decision made by a savvy homeowner. You have realized that a home without a crawlspace vapor barrier is prone to:
- Dirty, musty air
- Insects and other pests drawn in by moisture
- Mold and mildew
- Structural damage
So now that you know you want a crawlspace vapor barrier, the question is: who is going to install it? Now at first you may be tempted to do the work yourself. After all, isn’t it just a tarp stapled to the sides of your crawlspace?
Please, do not make this mistake.
A crawlspace vapor barrier is much more than a simple tarp. And it requires much more care than simply stapling it in place. What you need is someone like Stay Dry Waterproofing to come in and make sure you have the right materials properly installed. Only then can you rest assured that your crawlspace vapor barrier will keep the moisture out.
